Battlefield 1 - Normally $59.99, now $35.99 with Gold or $41.99 without

"Whether in single or multiplayer Battlefield 1 absolutely nails the historical sense of adventure and expectation before swiftly giving way to dread as the war takes a physical and mental toll on its participants. And this - as much as the intimate, brutal virtual warfare - is the game's most impressive feat."

Dishonored 2 - Normally $59.99, now $30 with Gold or $35.99 without

"Dishonored 2 is a fantastic game in its own right, even if it doesn't revolutionize the fresh ideas put forth by its predecessor. This tale of systematic revenge imbues you with all the tools, tricks, and tactics you need to feel like a super-powered assassin, delivering an immersive power trip no matter how you choose to play."

For Honor - Normally $59.99, now $44.99 with Gold or $50.99 without

"For Honor offers real rewards for the players who love the drama of a duel and are willing to persist through those intimidating initial hours. It's for people who get excited about learning matchups and want to spend a few hours drilling plays and counterplays with their friends. It's an action game for fighting game people and a fighting game for action game people[.]"

Overwatch: Origins Edition - Normally $59.99, now $38.99 with Gold or $44.99 without

"Whether it's a small victory, like narrowly saving an ally's life, or a pivotal ultimate that lets you obliterate the opposing team and secure the final objective, Overwatch is ripe with the kinds of memorable moments that define worthwhile multiplayer."

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition - Normally $29.99, now $7.50 with Gold or $9.90 without

"When Sleeping Dogs grabs hold of you it absolutely refused to let go. You'll be amazed by the sheer amount of content, and how compelled you'll be to consume every drop of it. You'll want to unlock every costume, complete every side mission, and play until there isn't a single drop of Hong Kong left for you to see"

The Witcher 3: Complete Edition - Normally $49.99, now $25.00 with Gold or $29.99 without

"When you travel to one of Skellige's islands to find a lost expedition, the island becomes one huge, fascinating forensic crime scene. Other plots are just as involved, confronting you with twisted takes on the creatures and curses of old European folklore. These stories have ancient roots, and their authenticity conveys a grim, earthy texture to the world - a quality unique to The Witcher series."

Titanfall 2 - Normally $59.99, now $24 with Gold or $35.99 without

"It’s immediately gratifying on a moment-to-moment basis, but as a complete work and experience, it’s one of the most creative and rewarding FPS in recent memory."
