Weekend PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals from all over the internet are gathered into one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax, and hold on to your wallets.

Epic Games Store is offering PC Building Simulator for free

Beginning with this weekend’s freebies available for you to claim, both Epic Games and Ubisoft have offers ongoing. Epic Games Store’s weekly giveaway is for PC Building Simulator currently, which took the place of Europa Universalis IV.

A computer building repair shop is where the game takes place with licensed hardware from real-life companies available for tinkering. If repairing, upgrading, and building gaming PCs for customers gets tiring, a sandbox mode is also offered, finally letting you get your hands on as many GPUs as you want.

PC Building Simulator is free to claim on the store until October 14. Dropping next into the freebie pile is Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse and a Champion pack for Paladins on the same date.

Ghost Recon giveaway 20th anniversary

Meanwhile over on the Ubisoft store, the company is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Ghost Recon with a giveaway for the original game from 2001 as well as free DLC for the most recent entries.

The classic title puts you in charge of the Ghosts, an elite team of soldiers with high tech gadgetry with missions involving pinpoint strikes to slow down an advancing invasion, freeing POWs, and other covert objectives among its targets.

At the same time, Ubisoft is giving away the Fallen Ghosts expansion for Ghost Recon Wildlands. The Splinter Cell-themed Deep State Adventure for Ghost Recon Breakpoint is free to claim too, but you need to grab it via the in-game shop. The free copy of the iconic tactical shooter and the DLC for the more recent titles are yours to keep if you claim the promotions before they expire on October 11.
