This week's best gaming deals: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Outlast Trinity, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and more
We’ve reached the end of April and seen a brand new Call of Duty game unveiled. That must mean we’re approaching the summer at a tremendous speed. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best gaming deals of the past week.
Onto the deals! As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.
We’ve got another couple of giveaways going on, if you fancy being in with a chance of winning some free things. Firstly, we’ve got a Steam key for that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds game that all the people on the internet are talking about right now. You can enter to win that via the link below. Entry for that one ends tonight, so be quick.

Next, we’ve got five copies of this week’s brand new release of Outlast 2 to give out to a few of you, kindly provided by the generous folks from GOG.com. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a copy of the perhaps-overly-grotesque horror survival thing, head over to the link below and you can enter to do just that.

If you’ve been after a PS4 Pro console recently, you’ve probably noticed that they’ve very rarely seen any form of discount. That is, until SimplyGames lowered the price of its stock of the console down to £319.99 as it did this week. That’s the best price for a PS4 Pro console around right now, even if it doesn’t come with any games.

While I already mentioned Bloodborne earlier in this article, I’m not quite done yet. The super interesting Bloodborne: Card Game is currently discounted over at Amazon US, costing only $19.99 for a limited time. That’s reduced from its original $35 price tag. If you’re a tabletop game fan, this one might be up your alley.

In what looks to be a randomly chosen bundle of games, you can currently pick up both Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain on Xbox One in one bundle, costing you $28.
