NieR: Automata Preload on PC Now Live, Deal at 18% Off


Update 3/20: GMG has turned up the discount juice on NieR Automat. The game is now 20% off and priced at only $47.99.

For awhile there it really felt like PC gamers with slow internet connections were going to get dinged by Square Enix as preload for Nier: Automata was still not happening. Well things changed this morning with NieR: Automata’s preload now live about a day before its official launch. You can now start the 26GB download on Steam (about 50GB of space after installation), and even get the game’s Steam key on the cheap at GMG with an 18% discount. GMG is confirmed to be sending keys out immediately after purchase so you’ll be able to partake in preload.


It’s also a good day for Civilization fans, as Civilization VI is making new low territory. Just today Bundle Stars fired up a 24 hour only sale slashing the Digital Deluxe Edition from $80 to $49.99 – a historic low. The cheapest standard edition is still only about a buck off its lowest price ever now $42.74 at the WinGameStore after coupon. Both deals are around for only a short amount of time.


Finally in PC gaming deals there’s GMG’s Square Enix sale, which cuts the price on a ton of non-Final Fantasy title prices. New lows on Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Life is Strange: Complete Season (now only $4!). The sale began earlier this week, but since yesterday has added an additional 5% off coupon making even better prices than previous.
