July’s best gaming deals, including deep discounts on WB Lego games

July is a big month for both video game releases and deals for gamers, with discounts on big-name titles and older releases alike.

Warner Bros. is currently running a Family Fun sale in the Nintendo Game Store. The sale offers discounts of up to 75 percent on Warner Bros. games, including a large number of Lego games.

  • Lego City Undercover is $9, down from $30.
  • Lego DC Super-Villains is $15, down from $60.
  • Lego Harry Potter Collection is $12, down from $50.
  • Lego Jurassic World is $12, down from $40.
  • Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is $9, down from $30.
  • The Lego Movie 2 Videogame is $12, down from $40.
  • Lego Worlds is $9, down from $30.
  • Lego The Incredibles is $18, down from $60.
  • Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game is $12, down from $50.

The sale, which includes non-Lego games like Cars 3: Driven To Win, Scribblenauts Mega Pack, and Scribblenauts Showdown, runs until 9 a.m. PT on July 27.

At $50, Far Cry fans can pre-order the standard edition of the recently announced Far Cry 6 on Amazon for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The deal doesn’t apply to the upcoming Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, or PC versions, so players willing to stick it out with their current-gen consoles would benefit from this Amazon deal.

Speaking of the PlayStation Store, this month has a plethora of deals, with big discounts on some well-known titles. Some games are marked down by up to 90%, and many deluxe versions of games with lots of add-ons and perks are also available. The sale runs until July 22. Here are a few notable games:

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles bundle is $20, down from $60
  • No Man’s Sky is $25, down from $50
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is $15, down from $60
  • Resident Evil 7  is $10, down from $20
  • Dark Souls III – Deluxe Edition bundle is $21, down from $85
  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Ultimate Edition bundle is $30, down from $120
  • Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is $3, down from $30.
  • Watch Dogs 2 – Deluxe Edition is $12, down from $60
  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition is $38, down from $70

If you’re a PC gamer and you’ve always wanted to try some of Telltale Games’ marquee titles, you’re in luck. For $15, players can get more than $170 worth of games from the Humble Summer Adventure Games Bundle, which features titles like Batman: The Telltale Series, The Walking Dead: Season 1, The Walking Dead: 400 Days, Batman: The Enemy Within Shadows Mode, The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and The Walking Dead: Michonne.

Non-Telltale games like Oxenfree and Heaven’s Vault are also included. Buyers can pay as little as $1 or as much as they want, and the amount of games they’ll get from the bundle depends on the price they pay, but $15 will get all of them.

To top everything off, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is just over $10 off on Amazon at $59, not including shipping and tax. If the Joy-Con drift issue remains a problem, then the Pro Controller might be a good alternative, especially at its current price.

Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay shows off absolutely disgusting finishers
Key art for Mortal Kombat 1 shows its logo and Liu Kang.

Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay was finally shown in detail at Summer Games Fest following its initial reveal in May, and it's already looking like the most cinematic entry to date. Classic characters like Sub Zero and Scorpion are back in their full glory, and the finishing moves have never been quite as visceral or engrossing -- with "gross" being the keyword to focus on if you're particularly sensitive to watching characters sawed apart limb from limb.

Mortal Kombat series co-creator Ed Boon took to the stage shortly after the gameplay presentation to describe some of the new gameplay elements in a quick interview with Summer Games Fest host Geoff Keighley, noting that this entry represents a series reboot that is designed to introduce a new spin on classic Mortal Kombat lore.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will make you forget about The Sands of Time remake
A character reached out to grab a shard in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.

Ubisoft confirmed Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown at the 2023 Summer Game Fest kickoff stream with a trailer showing its gameplay and story. The trailer showcased the fast-paced, real-time combat that the series is known for in its action-packed footage. It also introduces a sword-slinging protagonist and his journey through Ubisoft's latest version of its Persian setting.

We didn't learn too much about The Lost Crown's story in the trailer. However, based on the dialogue bits in the cutscenes, we know it focuses on a group of mercenaries and their mission to rescue the prince of the kingdom from cursed enemies who have somehow kidnapped him. Expect a mix of melee-based and magical fights, and plenty of parkour stunts like vaulting through sandstone plazas and lush forests.

How to transmog gear in Diablo 4
Diablo 4 barbarian

You're going to be scoring a lot of loot while playing through Diablo 4, and you certainly have no use for the vast majority of it. But just because it doesn't have the stats you're looking for doesn't mean that it can't look cooler than what you're already wearing. That's where transmog comes in. It allows you to save the look of any armor piece and apply it to a new piece so that you can ensure you're always maintaining whatever aesthetic you desire. We'll share with you how the transmog system works below.
How to transmog in Diablo 4
To transmog your gear in Diablo 4, you'll need to find and visit a wardrobe, which can commonly be found in settlements across the lands. You can identify a wardrobe's location by looking across the map for its icon, which looks like, well, a standard two-door wardrobe. No surprises there.

Once you find your way to a wardrobe, you'll have a few different options: You can change some basic character features, such as makeup and jewelry, or you can begin applying new looks to your gear. When choosing the latter, you'll be able to apply the appearance of any pieces of gear that you've previously salvaged at a blacksmith. You'll also have the option to switch up the color of the gear to further customize your character's vibe.
