Steam is having a weekend-long sale and it’s offering discounts of up to 85% on a ton of titles published by 2K Games. I went over the list and picked the 7 titles that I think are the most interesting. Take a look below.

Quick reminder: the 2K Publisher Weekend ends on Monday, March 20, at 10AM Pacific Time. So if something catches your eye, make sure to buy it before the sale ends.

1. XCOM 2

You loved playing the award-winning strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown and you would have loved to play the sequel as well, but you stayed away because the price was too high. Not this weekend it isn’t! Both the Standard and the Digital Deluxe editions are discounted by 60%, priced at…
  • XCOM 2$23.99 instead of $59.99 and €19.99 instead of €49.99.
  • XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe – $29.99 instead of $74.99 and €25.99 instead of €64.99.
Other XCOM titles that are on sale: XCOM: Enemy Unknown 75% off, XCOM: Enemy Within DLC 80% off, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified also 80% off.

2. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is the latest release in the turn-based 4X video game series. It lets you play as one of 20 historical leaders, it offers new ways to interact with your world, it gives you the chance to expand your empire across the map, and more.

The discount isn’t very generous, just 20% for the Standard Edition and 25% for the Digital Deluxe Edition. But at least you’re not paying full price, right? The prices are the same in Euros (€).

Civilization V and Beyond Earth are on sale too, both discounted by 75%. Sid Meier’s Railroads, Pirates, Starships, Ace Patrol, and Ace: Patrol Pacific Skies are discounted by 75% as well.

3. Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel

The action takes place in between the original Borderlands game and the Borderlands 2 sequel. The storyline in this action role-playing first-person shooter video game focuses on Handsome Jack, explaining how the baddie from Borderlands 2 rose to power.

The Pre-Sequel game and the Pre-Sequel + Season Pass are both discounted by 70%.
The prices are the same in Euros (€).

Borderlands and Borderlands 2 are on sale as well, discounted by up to 80%.

4. Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite, a first-person shooter that takes place in the steampunk city-state of Columbia in 1912, tells the story of Booker DeWitt, a hired gun who has just one chance to wipe his slate clean. He is sent off to rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia.

Bioshock Infinite is discounted by 67%, priced at…

  • Bioshock Infinite + Season Pass – $16.49 instead of $49.99
The prices are the same in Euros (€).

Bioshock: The Collection, which includes Bioshock Infinite + Season Pass and remastered versions of Bioshock 1 and 2, is discounted by 75%, priced at $14.99 instead of $59.99.

5. NBA 2K17

What’s there to say about NBA 2K17? It’s based on basketball and the National Basketball Association, it is the 18th installment in the NBA 2K franchise, and it is discounted by up to 50%, depending on which version you want to purchase.
  • NBA 2K17$35.99 instead of $59.99 and €29.99 instead of €49.99.
  • NBA 2K17 Legend Edition – $43.99 instead of $79.99 and €38.49 instead of €69.99.
  • NBA 2K17 Legend Edition Gold – $49.99 instead of $99.99 and €44.99 instead of €89.99.
In keeping with the sports theme we’ve got going on here, I have to remind you that WWE 2K17 is on sale as well, discounted by 25% for the Standard Edition and 30% for the Digital Deluxe Edition.

This means you can get WWE 2K17 for $37.49 instead of $49.99 and WWE 2K17 Digital Deluxe for $52.49 instead of $74.99.

6. Spec Ops: The Line

When it was released back in 2012, this third-person shooter made waves for the fact that it offers "provocative and gripping gameplay designed to challenge players' morality by putting them in the middle of unspeakable situations where unimaginable choices affecting human life must be made."

If you have yet to play Specs Ops: The Line, this is you chance to get it for 80% off. If you want to try Spec Ops: The Line for free, a Demo is available on Steam.

7. Mafia III

Yes, I know that this action-adventure game has lousy reviews that criticize the bland open world, repetitive gameplay, and poor performance. But it has an awesome soundtrack and the story was good enough to earn a Best Narrative nomination for The Game Awards 2016. Seeing that the game is discounted by 67%, it’s up to you to decide if you want to get Mafia III or not.
  • Mafia III$19.79 instead of $59.99 and €16.49 instead of €49.99.
  • Mafia III Digital Deluxe – $26.39 instead of $79.99 and €23.09 instead of €69.99.
Mafia II, which has very positive reviews, is discounted by 75% for the Standard Edition and 80% for the Digital Deluxe Edition, which means that you can get the former for $7.49 instead of $29.99 and the latter for $7.99 instead of $39.99. The prices are the same in Euros (€).
