Cheapest E3 games deals
God of War | PS4 | £42.85 @ SimplyGames
This looks like a reinvention to the series, but thankfully with the story continuing on from the events of GoWIII. The chained blades have been replaced -for now- with an axe. But it's the interactions with his son(?) that's the biggest change to the series. Looks like The Last of Us' influence continues to spread. Kratos has never been an easy character to warm too, but maybe we're about to see a new side to him.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild | Wii U | £39.85 @ ShopTo
To say Nintendo fans have been waiting a while for this would be a serious understatement. But we've finally had a decent look and it's looking great. Link seems a bit more active now as he can now climb and... jump. Look, it's new for him, ok!
Spiderman | PS4 | £39.99 @ Base
This was a great surprise during Sony's presser, especially with Ratchet developers, Insomniac Games, at the helm. New York may be the most overused location in gaming, but we're more than happy to web-swing through those streets again. Spidey's been off his game lately, but Insomniac are certainly capable of bringing him back to glory - just make sure Bruce Campbell makes an appearance again, ok?
For Honor | PS4 / Xbox One | £39.85 @ ShopTo
The impressive detail in the historical melee mashup has certainly caught our attention. The combat against tougher opponents appears to be a tense battle of judging blocks and attacks with an important emphasis on angles. Hopefully, the action against fodder enemies isn't as simple as it looks as we barely saw them attack during Ubi's demo.
Death Stranding | PS4 | £39.75 @ GameSeek
Ok, we still don't really have a clue what Hideo Kojima's next game is all about. All we know from the new trailer is that it has Norman Reedus, a foetus and a lot of dead fish on a beach that looks like the prologue in Prometheus. If that's you sold, then GameSeek are the only store under £40.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided | PS4 / Xbox One | £37.95 @ GameCollection
This is £3 more than yesterday's flash sale deal, but anything under £40 for a Triple A preorder like this is always a bonus.
Horizon: Zero Dawn | PS4 | £39.75 @ GameSeek
That delay into 2017 may sting a little bit more when you see the new footage. Like a mix of Killzone, Enslaved and Far Cry: Primal, Horizon could be one of the more unique titles of next year. This deal is nearly £4 cheaper than yesterday's best price.
Final Fantasy XV | PS4 / Xbox One | £32.85 @ SimplyGames
We saw the team take on a huge Titan boss at E3 and the sheer scale of the battle was truly a sight to behold. Is that combat going to hold up a 40+ hour game though. After all these years of waiting, we're ready to find out. We can't quite believe we're seeing a preorder price this good either!
Gears of War 4 | Xbox One | £39.75 @ GameSeek
Gears had a much improved showing over recent outings by giving us a deeper look at the action. Sure, it's not breaking the mould anymore, but it should be a fun shooter, especially in co-op. Oh, and hello Marcus, nice to see you again. There aren't many deals under £44, but GameSeek is leading the way so far.
Forza Horizon 3 | Xbox One | £39.99 @ Base
The Australian setting for the next entry in the open world racer looks incredible and is packed with varied landscapes (it's not all desert, dingoes and deadly spiders after all). The seamless multiplayer sees you plucked from your side of the map to join your friends in a different location with no loading screens in sight - impressive. Base.com is the cheapest around by a few quid.
Recore | Xbox One | £29.99 @ Amazon
Recore will release at a lower price than most retail XO titles, so don't pay more than £30 - some cheeky stores are still listing it at £40. Fresh gameplay footage showed a healthy mix of action and platforming along with displaying what your group of robo-followers can do.
Scalebound | Xbox One | £42.85 @ ShopTo
Platinum's long-awaited XO exclusive is looking better each time we see it and yesterday's co-op display of the studio's largest ever boss fight has seriously whetted our appetite thanks to a healthy mix of dragons and on-foot combat. The lead guy could do with piping down a bit though as the constant yelling really grates. Prices aren't that impressive yet, but ShopTo are the cheapest.
Watch Dogs 2 | PS4 / Xbox One | £42.75 @ GameSeek
If you have an allergy to Hipsters, Watch Dogs 2's characters may make your skin crawl. That aside though, Watch Dogs 2 looks like a lot of fun and the move to San Fran is just what we needed after the dreary and lifeless setting of Chicago last time. Ubi made some great changes for the second game in the Assassin's series and we're hoping for a similar resurgence here. Prices are a little steep so far, but GameSeek are the cheapest right now.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands | PS4 / Xbox One | £39.85 @ ShopTo
Wildland's really climbing up our most wanted list and the latest footage shows the huge scale of missions as a co-op team begin by sneaking through an enemy camp, before going loud and chasing down a gang member with motorbikes, trucks and choppers. The Division's time may be up very soon. ShopTo's preorder is the only one under £40.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole | PS4 / Xbox One | £39.85 @ ShopTo
If you needed an incentive to buy South Park's RPG take on the superhero movie genre, check this out. Selected listings also include a digital copy of South Park: The Stick of Truth, playable on the PS4 and Xbox One for the first time.
Resident Evil 7 | PS4 / Xbox One | £42.85 @ Simply Games
Resi 7 looks to have borrowed more than a little from the fetid remains of Konami's cancelled P.T., but that's just fine by us. With a first-person viewpoint and a creepy house to explore in the trailer, the game looks a million miles away from the machine gun-sponsored nonsense of the recent games in the series. PS+ subscribers can grab the free demo from PSN right now.
Detroit: Become Human | PS4 | £39.99 @ Base
After the mixed reception of Beyond, Detroit may see Quantic Dream back on form with this interactive drama. A new character is introduced and we see how new scenarios play out as an android tries to talk down a fellow bot from killing his hostage. Mistakes will be made!
The Last Guardian | PS4 | £41.75 @ GameSeek
After so many years in development, The Last Guardian will finally be with us on October 24th. Knowing these devs though, they're totally going to make us watch the creature die. We're so not ready for that many feelings.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare | PS4 / Xbox One | £39.85 @ SimplyGames
With so many new IPs hitting the stage, you'd be forgiven for overlooking this year's Call of Duty. Usually preorders for Activision's shooter series are about £45, but SimplyGames has bit the bullet and has a decent £39.85 preorder deal.
Days Gone | PS4 | £39.99 @ Base
It's so new, Base don't even have proper box art to display on their listing. Early gameplay videos show a bleak Last of Us-like setting, but with zombie numbers closer to something like Dead Rising. Consider our interest piqued to say the least. Most retailer's haven't got around to listing the game yet, but a penny under £40 isn't bad at all for a brand new Sony IP. More so considering the next best 'deal' at Amazon is over £70. The loons.
We'll update these deals over the next few days and add in some of the missing E3 games once retailers start to list them (yes you, God of War). Until then, here's the best of the rest!
