Deal: Save on Strafe before tomorrow's release


A blast from the FPS past

Back in 2015, a Kickstarter began for a 1990s-style first-person shooter that is now culminating in tomorrow's release of Strafe. Now under the Devolver Digital umbrella, the game is going live on Steam for $19.96 tomorrow, but bargain hunters can find a 21% off pre-order discount available.

The retailer in question is the Sweden-based GamersGate, offering the Steam copy of the game for $15.77. This is the best price online from an authorized retailer. The discount expires upon Strafe's 1:00pm Eastern release tomorrow and will revert to full price at that time.

Strafe Deals

  • Strafe (Steam key) — $17.96  (list price $20)
  • Unknown expiration
  • Strafe (Steam key) — $15.77  (list price $20)
  • Expires 5/9 at 1:00pm Eastern

Update: Strafe's deal at GamersGate is now expired, so the next best deal is only 10% off at DLGamer. This appears to be one of those titles that aren't going to get heavily price cut. No real surprise as its a $20 list price game, after all.

As mentioned, the discount on Strafe will only be valid up until its release date. After that time we'll keep you updated on other available deals from the usual suspects.

For those unfamiliar, the game's intention is to capture the old-school Quake and Doom style of the '90s. All maps are randomly generated, so each playthrough should be unique. If you're interested in some classic FPS action, $15 isn't a bad price for what looks to be a promising title.
