Weekend PC game deals: Build towns and fight your way through them at free events

Weekend PC Game Deals This is where the best gaming deals on the internet are gathered in one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax and hold on to your wallets.

The new game packs weren’t released this week, so you only get last week’s stealth pack with Hitman games to keep you company. Epic hasn’t missed a beat though, with it making it stand out Yoku Island Express as the last giveaway to replace last week’s duo.

Land as an indie platform game with a touch of pinball, Yoku Island Express puts you in the shoes of a dung beetle who is a postmaster. Instead of the usual jumping mechanics, you control Yoku’s movements using pinball machines and bumpers to roam the open world, help locals, and defeat bosses.

The Yoku Island Express the giveaway will last until Thursday, September 9. The next giveaway program is a copy of the survival management game Protected.
