XCOM’s going retro in the upcoming The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. If the 1960s reboot turns out to be as good as last year’s hit XCOM: Enemy Unknown, it may be worth preordering – especially since GameFly is throwing $20 worth of preorder incentives your way. They’ve got the price reduced from $49.99 to $44.99 ($5 savings), they’re throwing in the “Codebreakers” DLC, plus they’re giving you the choice of either a $10 GameFly Credit, a $10 GameFly Digital Credit, or a 1-month membership to their video game rental service. What’s more, you’ll get an additional $10 voucher good on other 2K titles at GameFly.
If store credit isn’t your thing and free games are more your cup of tea, Green Man Gaming also has an interesting tiered group buying reward approach for The Bureau, much like what’s currently available on the Steam store. If you preorder from GMG, you’ll get the $5 off, Codebreaker DLC, a choice of $12 credit or $8 cash back, and potentially a few free games. When GMG generates enough preorder sales of The Bureau (an unknown quantity to us), they’ll give everyone who preorded a copy of Spec Ops: The Line, and if they get an even larger number of preorder sales,, they’ll throw in a giant XCOM Ultimate Bundle, which includes Enemy Unknown, its DLCs, and 4 other classic XCOM games.
If you’ve been keeping track of gaming sales, you’ll remember that Steam’s Summer Sale ended earlier this month. Not to be left out of the sale frenzy, GameStop started their own digital summer sale immediately after Steam’s ended. Like Steam, there are new Daily Deals refreshed every 48 hours at GameStop, as well as plenty of other discounts littered about their Impulse PC download service.
Over at GameFly, you can also get up to 83% off instantly on 20 Rockstar titles and bundles. Better yet, there’s a stacking 20% off coupon code. This way you can nab the Max Payne 3 Complete Pack (base game + DLC) for only $9.59 after coupon, or the entire Max Payne series (1-3 + DLC) for only $15.99 after coupon.
