We are more than a month away from Steam Summer Sale, if there’s any truth to the leaked timeline. But if you are itching to cash in on some digital deals, you can check out the Humble Store Spring Sale, which started four days ago. It has expanded its current selections with the addition of the Witcher series and SEGA games, though not all of them are cheaper than what’s offered on Steam.

For instance, SEGA’s premium offerings include Total War: WARHAMMER and Football Manager 2017, which are priced at $29.99 (RM130) and $24.99 (RM108) respectively. It’ll be cheaper if you get them directly from the Steam store instead, with WARHAMMER costing RM115, while FM requires you to fork out RM105. The difference in price might actually be larger if we factor in the higher conversion rates employed by banks as well. With that said, this only applies to a small percentage of SEGA’s games, as a general comparison across the board yields better deals if you buy them from the Humble Store.

On the other hand, CD Projekt’s Witcher series is offering the best bang for your buck on the Humble Store, which includes the main titles and the Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. Here’s a comparison of them with the pricing on Steam for your reference:

  • The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut - $1.49 (RM7) Steam (RM23)
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition – $2.99 (RM13) Steam (RM38)
  • The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Game of the Year Edition - $24.99 (RM108) Steam (RM129)

According to IsThereAnyDeal, the current sale equals the lowest digital price for the likes of The Witcher 3, so now might be a good time to get it if you haven’t tried the critically-acclaimed open-world RPG. The Humble Store Spring Sale ends on May 25 at 1000 PT (May 26, 0100 GMT+8), while the Witcher and SEGA deals last until May 19. Happy hunting!
