Update 9/5: New coupon added below. Coupon unfortunately no longer works on The Sims 4 for Europeans :(

The Sims 4 and Dead Rising 3 are two big titles are out this week on PC. Rather than pay the full list price though, both games qualify for a 20% off coupon at the UK digital download retailer GMG. In the case of The Sims 4, the Origin key is only $48 after coupon saving you $12 off the usual $60 you’ll pay elsewhere. This is a limited time deal and may expire soon.

If you’re in Europe, the game is still technically not released yet (as of writing) and you’ll be able to snag The Sims 4 Limited Edition with bigger percentage in savings (just don’t do the currency conversion math and you’ll feel better). Those in Europe the price is €40 after instant savings stacking with coupon, while for those in the UK the price is £30 after voucher and instant savings. Just use voucher code X22OFF-DEALZO-NGMGUS during checkout and you’re golden!

Those interested should preorder Dead Rising 3 before tomorrow’s release as in addition to a $5 preorder instant discount, the aforementioned 20% off coupon stacks on top, dropping the final price to $36. That beats the heck out of paying the full $49.99 when the game launches tomorrow. You’ll receive your key immediately so you can get started on pre-loading, which is live as of Tuesday earlier this week.
