We mentioned before that Green Man Gaming was doing five days of sales. Welp, they’ve now begun with Green Thursday.
Pretty much everything has been discounted, but there are a few special deals for today only – some of which seem to be fairly close to Steam’s sales from yesterday. So, let’s have a look.
Today’s deals include The Evil Within for £11.89, Skyrim for £2.49, Lords of the Fallen for £22.49, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for £20.09, Tropico 5 for £17.49, Wolfenstein: The New Order for £11.89, Blackguards for £10.19, Spintires for £11.99, and Thief for £4.99. Some of which won’t seem very impressive if you’ve been looking at Steam’s sales, but maybe the regional prices are a bit better for Green Man Gaming. That, and if you’ve signed up to Playfire then you’ll probably have a fair bit of credit in your Green Man Gaming account anyway. Also: Wolfenstein is on sale but not on Blue Monday? Missed opportunity there.
However! That’s not actually the “best” bit of the sale, because the discounts are considerably larger if you’re a Green Man Gaming VIP. As far as I can tell there’s no big requirement to being a VIP except that you have to have an account (and maybe have to have bought something before; I don’t know). If you check the VIP page, then you’ll see the following deals instead:
Skyrim for £1.99, The Evil Within for £9.40, Wolfenstein: The New Order for £9.40, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for £15.46, NBA 2K15 for £15.46, Total War: Rome 2 for £5.99, Dishonored for £1.99, Fallout: New Vegas for £1.99, Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition for £6.73, Civilization 5: The Complete Edition for £6.73, Chivalry: Complete Pack for £5.13, Thief for £3.85, Spintires for £9.47, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for £9.99, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition for £7.99.
Most (if not all) of these games should activate on Steam. We quite understand if you’d rather wait for Steam’s daily deals to update, though, as that’s due to happen in half an hour; we’ll give you the details on that sale when it happens.
