If you don’t mind using EA’s Origin service, I’ve got a bit of good news for you. Yesterday, on April 25, 2013, an Origin Sale on action games kicked off. Until the end of the month, an assortment of new and old games are on sale. The deals aren’t as good as, say, the ones you’ll see soon during the Steam 2013 Summer Sale, but they’re respectable enough. I’m seeing a lot of stuff for around 50% off. Plus, they aren’t just on downloads. In some cases, the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of games are on sale as well.
Lots of action games are reduced during this Origin sale, which could make it difficult to pick out specific deals. Fear not, I’ve stepped in to highlight some of the best sales. You’ll want to pay attention to these. Also, if any are available for consoles as well, I’ll make sure to note it. If I don’t say anything, it means the item is only available as a download for Windows PCs. Also, if you’re buying physical copies of games, there’s free shipping so long as your order is over $25.
- Assassin’s Creed III (PC) – $24.99

- Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition (PC) – $14.99

- Tomb Raider (PC) – $24.99
That Tomb Raider download is a good deal! It’s cheaper during EA’s Origin sale than it is during that <a href="Square Enix Online Store sale going on now. Even though it means using that whole Origin client, it may be better to go with EA for that game, if you’re so inclined. Hitman Absolution is also cheaper through Origin right now. Dead Island, however, is cheaper through Square Enix.
Just remember, if you want any of these Origin sale games, you need to buy by April 30, 2013. After that, it’s all over and the prices shoot back up to normal. So hesitating is a bad thing.
