Nothing screams hype more than 70+ awards for a game that hasn't been released yet.
Next month the AAA FPS release Titanfall will hit the shelves for console and PC. Maybe you don't know this yet, but newsflash: you're going to buy this game. Heck, I bought 50 copies. At least that's what every critic and the shining awards say we'll be doing. Hype aside, Titanfall is definitely on the list of highly anticipated titles for 2014. If you've already decided you're going to buy, there's a 20% off pre-order coupon for Titanfall's Digital Edition (Origin key). No deals yet for the consoles, plus the 360 version is now delayed until March 25th, so another leg up if you're a PC gamer.
In other deal news for big 2014 releases, The Sims 4 is also on the price-chopping block. While the game still has a TBA release date, there's an incredibly hot deal on GMG (disclaimer: potential price mistake) where you can pre-order The Sims 4 for only $40 (or effectively $36 after in-store credit). Essentially, GMG is giving the pre-order bonus incentive of $12 in-store credit or $8 cash back - but what's crazy is the 20% off coupon for The Sims 4 stacks with this deal, making it only $40 if you go with the cash back option, or $36 in effective value if you go with the store credit.
Last in big release news, in late January Bethesda released details on the Imperial Edition of its upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online title. At the same time, the pre-order appeared on sale at the usual gaming retailer suspects. The same coupon for the games above knocks $12 off the $60 list price for the Standard Edition of ESO and $16 off the $80 list price for the Imperial Edition of ESO. Additionally, pre-orders will get you a couple of other bonuses, listed below.
