Time for the last news of the week... and also the last ones before the E3pocalypse:
SALES & DEALS
Kingdom: New Lands is the free game of the week on the Epic Store
From today until the 13th of June, Kingdom: New Lands is yours to try and keep for free with compliments from the Epic Store. As part of an ongoing deal with third-party developers, the Epic Store has added the spiritual successor of Kingdom: Classic to a list of free releases they will be making available throughout 2019.
>> Grab it from here. The next free game will be Enter the Gungeon.
Anthem is 50% off in the Origin Infinite Gaming Sale
EA is hosting another Infinite Gaming Sale, shaving up to 60 percent off a big pile of games, including Battlefield 5 and Anthem. The former's been discounted by 60 percent, while Anthem's 50 percent off.
Those are some pretty big discounts for what are still fairly new, big budget games. Neither matched the—admittedly high—expectations EA had for them, though by the standards of most games a lot of people picked them up. I've seen physical copies of Anthem going for less, but I've not seen it cheaper for this on Origin.
On the Humble Store there's a Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege free weekend, with a 50% discount on the basic game and up to 60% off on the higher editions: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/promo/rainbow-six-siege-free-weekend/

- The Star Deal is GRIP: Combat Racing, 40% off for the next 48 hours: https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/grip
