Last weekend we had the Steam Lunar New Year sale and now there's a new game sale to enable you to top up your games library while saving money. EA has kicked off the 'EA Publisher Sale' which runs from now until Tuesday 6th March (10am PST). On the EA Origin PC store front page I noticed lots of AAA games reduced between 40 and 75 per cent.

Among the discounted titles appear to be most of EA's major brands. There are deep discounts on games and DLCs from following franchises:

  • Battlefield
  • Star Wars
  • Need for Speed
  • FIFA
  • Sims
  • Mass Effect
  • Titanfall
  • Crysis
  • Dragon Age
  • And more

Examples from the sale here in the UK include the Star Wars Battlefront II, Need for Speed Payback and FIFA 18 games, which are all reduced from £54.99 to £21.99 - equivalent to a 60 per cent discount.

The next Battlefield

In other EA news, the games publisher has announced its EA Play event at E3 2018. From 9th - 11th June, at the Hollywood Palladium, EA will be showcasing "the biggest games of the year". In addition to on-stage and video presentations, EA will be allowing attendees hands-on time as follows:

"At EA Play 2018, you will have a chance to play our next Battlefield experience, new EA Sports games, and get an inside look at the stunning new action game, Anthem. The Sims 4 and our mobile games will be on hand, and of course, we have a few surprises as well".

After being showcased / demoed at E3, the next Battlefield is due to become available from October 2018. EuroGamer reckons the next Battlefield game will be a WWII title.

Yes, I know.

I am a dirty, filthy little threesome-loving and have already profaned my soul to EA by purchasing not one, not two, but three titles in this sale just last night…. :crazy:

…. and two of them were GotY editions. :eek:

Got myself ME: Andromeda, DA: Inquisition and also Syndicate.
I'm sure all three are hideous and foul, but the first two are from series that I loved… and the third one…. well, I simply haven't played it yet… but it was cheap. :whip:
£21.99??

Surely these should be in the £15 range, which is the MOST expensive for the old games, with many falling to £6.99? You THINK that you're getting a bargain but none of these should be £54 upon release. Not even Crysis. Why are we falling for Marketing?
LOL..they still want nearly £20 a piece for the Mass Effect 2 & 3 DLC packs.

DA:Inquisition is quite fun. ME:A is definitely better than when it was first released by its not as good as the original games,and the character models look horrible. I ended up having to download some mods and look at a guide to make my character look human!!

I usually get the mega-uber-all-inclusive collectors versions in Steam sales for about a tenner, for that very reason.
It means waiting a few years after release, but all the bugs are usually fixed by then as well.
