To help you out with some important “life choices”, we’ve sifted through what’s on offer and picked out several highlights that you might want to take note of.

Marvel Midnight Suns

Released back in December of last year, Marvel Midnight Suns is one of the more recent titles that’s currently on sale. The game is a turn-based tactical RPG that’s set in the darker side of the popular comic book franchise’s universe. You play as an original and fully-customisable character, The Hunter, who’s tasked to go against the demonic forces of Lilith and the elder god Chthon. Thankfully, you won’t be fighting alone, as you’ll be joined by a variety of characters from Marvel such as Wolverine, Blade, Venom, Iron Man, and many more.

Marvel Midnight Suns is currently offered at 50% off, with the standard release coming in at RM97.50, while the Digital+ and Legendary editions are priced at RM 129.50 and RM 164.50 respectively.

Back 4 Blood

Otherwise referred to as the spiritual successor to the classic Left 4 Dead series, Turtle Rock Studios’ Back 4 Blood updates the cooperative four-player zombie horde survival formula with new gameplay mechanics and more. Players can choose between eight customisable characters known as Cleaners, each featuring their own unique traits and bonuses, as well as weaknesses. There’s also a PVP mode that’s akin to Left 4 Dead, where opposing players get to control special Ridden monsters to thwart the other team’s progress.

The three versions of Back 4 Blood as well as its DLCs are all currently 75% off on Steam throughout the Spring Sale. The standard, Deluxe and Ultimate editions are now priced at RM 51.25, RM 76.25 and RM 85 respectively.

The NieR series

Nier Automata is yet again discounted at 50% off for this particular Steam sale, bringing its price tag down to RM 84.50. For the uninitiated, the game has been considered by many as a masterpiece, thanks to its excellent visual direction, gameplay, story, characters and soundtrack. If you’ve been on the fence about giving this title a shot, now’s probably the best time to do so.

Also not forgetting the remastered version of Automata’s predecessor, Nier Replicant, which has been upgraded to feature improved gameplay mechanics and graphics over its original launch during the PlayStation 3 era. Like its sequel, the game also includes a whimsical cast of characters, gameplay inspired by multiple genres, and a brilliant soundtrack.

During the promotion, Nier Replicant is currently discounted at RM 124.50 – slightly more pricier than its sequel, though due to the fact that the remastered version was released years after Automata’s launch on PC.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade

While we’re on the subject of remastered games, Square Enix’s remake of its classic roleplaying game from 1997 – Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade – is also on sale at RM 170.43, which is 43% off from its current retail price of RM 299. While not that recent of a release on PC, the game was only brought over to Steam back in June of last year after first launching on Epic Games Store in late 2021. 

Unlike the initial version of the title, Remake features fully upgraded graphics, as well as a whole new real-time based combat system. Though its characters and premise are all somewhat familiar, the game actually presents players with some reimaginings of the original story.

The Callisto Protocol

Created by Dead Space’s co-creator Glen Schofield, The Callisto Protocol in several ways is considered a spiritual successor to EA’s survival horror classic. This is thanks to its claustrophobia-inducing environments and third-person perspective, as well as horrific monster designs, gruesome action, among many other elements. What sets the game apart from Dead Space is its melee-focused combat system, which challenges the player’s reflexes and tactics.

During the Spring Sale, The Callisto Protocol is currently discounted 30% at RM 139.30, while its Digital Deluxe Edition is priced at RM 195.30.
