The best time to grab a good deal for games and hardware is coming. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, so it may be worth taking a look at where they even came from, why each day offers such good deals year after year, and, what deals you can grab during that time on the G2A.COM Marketplace.

The end of this year quickly became crowded with exciting game launches, and with the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals coming soon, it’s a good idea to list a few of the most interesting options so that you’ll know what offers to watch out for when the G2A Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales begin and many, many things, game keys, gift cards, electronics and more become cheaper.

Big games of November and December

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The long-running series of Ubisoft’s quasi-historical science fiction series comes back with another entry, and this time we’re traveling with the Norse to the green and rich shores of England to rob, plunder, and found some settlements.

You will tangle with kings, fight quasi-mythical beasts, and become a legend. But you will also engage in more peaceful activities, like Norse verbal battles called flyting, or assemble cairns to mark important locations. It’s one of the kind journey to England as you may remember it from the TV show “Vikings”.

The fifth expansion for Bungie’s hit MMO first-person shooter pushes the story forward, with a few long-awaited returns by characters known from Destiny 1. There are also new locations, new weapons (obviously), and even a new raid. Bungie calls Beyond Light a beginning of a new era.

If you’re a fan of Destiny 2 you’re certainly already aiming to get Beyond Light, but Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are sure to include this expansion.

If you held back on Devil May Cry 5 so far, the Special Edition is the best version to get into if you have a console to play it on. As is the tradition for the series, DMC5SE includes Vergil as the playable character, and the devil in a blue coat features all his classic weapons, including the Beowulf gauntlets.

There are also visual upgrades putting the already good-looking game in line with the new generation of consoles, such as ray-tracing, higher resolutions, or better framerates. Crazy-stylish combos have never looked as good, and Vergil has never been as motivated before.

The third in the Watch Dogs series, this one takes place in a downright cyberpunk version of London controlled by corporations and with a private security firm replacing the police. All because of a terrorist attacked wrongly pinned on the hacktivist group DedSec, whom you likely know from previous installments of the series.

You get to recruit anyone, generated procedurally from a pool of possible traits. If you want to play a drone-flying elderly lady, nothing’s going to stop you.

Despite having a new protagonist and drastically changed gameplay, Yakuza: Like a Dragon loses nothing of the series’ spirit and atmosphere. Instead of the mainstay Kazuma Kiryu you’re playing as Ichiban Kasuga, freshly released from prison after 18 years and trying to figure out what happened to his clan in the meantime.

The battles now play out as a turn-based RPG rather than action-filled brawling sequences, and it works very well, perfectly in line with a series that lets you race RC cars.

The next installment of the Hyrule Warriors series lets you experience the events which took place before Link got really sleepy and wouldn’t awaken until Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It also lets you really go to town on Ganon’s servants and see for yourself what Link was like at his best during the war.

Of course, in a true musou game fashion, there’s also a bunch of other characters, including Princess Zelda herself.

Welcome to the Prohibition-era United States. You have a business to run, and the business isn’t exactly…legal.

In Empire of Sin you become one of several mob bosses and you’ll need to maintain and expand your operation through clever maneuvering, profitable illicit businesses, and shooting tommy guns across the street when necessary in XCOM-like turn-based tactical battles. And each of the available bosses is a fascinating personality with interesting options available to them.

Immortal Fenyx rising is a project you may have heard about back when it was called Gods and Monsters. At its heart is an open-world action game inspired by Greek mythology.

As a fully customisable soldier called Fenyx you’ll need to help the gods with Typhon seeking vengeance for a defeat centuries ago. Thankfully you’ll get to wield boons and artifacts bestowed upon you by the gods. The game has a much lighter tone than most of Ubisoft’s modern output, with vibrant colours, stylised designs, and a fair amount of jokes.

The year’s most anticipated release, scheduled to launch on December 10 promises an immersive, detailed, and rich near-future adventure set in the world known from a classic tabletop RPG. The near future of Cyberpunk 2077 is fascinating, vivid, and full of interesting conflicts and contrasts.

During your time with the game, you’ll do corporations dirty work, interact with gangs, and pursue your own goals, whatever they end up being in your playthrough. Or you could just roam the city in your car, sightseeing the detailed neighborhoods and looking for stories hidden around the city and beyond its borders.

Gift cards

Sometimes all the games for the season are already warming up in the library, and what’s left to do is stock up on store credit to get new releases as they arrive. This is what gift cards are for. Here are a few worth considering.

Steam

There’s little need to introduce Steam to anyone. Valve’s immensely popular digital distribution platform hold an immeasurable wealth of games with a healthy sprinkling of tools and other software.

You can get ready to grab the latest release that caught your eye by buying a gift card and boosting your Steam Wallet with currency.

Xbox gift cards can be fine-tuned between $1 and $100, a flexibility that makes them more giftable and adjustable to needs and budgets.

With an Xbox Gift Card, you can spend the credit on anything in the store: games, expansions, movies…or an Xbox Live subscription to let your gift recipient get even more out of their time playing on Xbox.

PlayStation gift cards come in two flavors. One is the PlayStation Store cash card, providing a code boosting the recipient’s store credit, which can be spent on anything on offer: games, multimedia, and the PlayStation Plus subscription.

There are also gift cards designed specifically for unlocking PlayStation Plus subscriptions, with 1-month, 3-month, and 12-month variants if instead of store credit you want to unlock the full range of user benefits for yourself or a friend.

Nintendo gift cards come in four prices, $10, $20, $35, and $50, so they are great both as a gift in its own right and as a neat bonus to a new game.

It’s an easy way to get new games, add-ons, and apps without bothering with physical cartridges and elaborate payment methods.

Does your friend spend a lot of time with games available on Blizzard’s Battle.net?

Do you play there yourself? Get a Blizzard Gift Card and spend it on whatever you want within Battle.net’s offer, which includes game, Hearthstone card packs, and World of Warcraft subscriptions.
