New 'May Madness' Sale Offers 1,600 PC Deals, Free Game When You Spend $10+

Somehow, it’s already May, and while the month is bringing longer days and warmer weather, it’s also bringing a slew of new digital game deals and free games, which is probably a bigger benefit for those who are still mostly stuck indoors. PC games storefront Fanatical is known for offering blowout sales with thousands of discounts–many of which are on Steam games–and it’s back with a new one for May. The May Madness Sale is live now at Fanatical and currently has over 1,600 deals on games as well as a free game offer.

The sale includes one of 2019’s best games, Control, a paranormal action-adventure game set inside a mysterious government building. Control is down to just $36 in the sale, a fantastic price for this weird and wonderful experience. If you’re in the mood to play Assassin’s Creed after seeing the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla reveal, you can snag great discounts on previous games like Odyssey ($18.59), Origins ($14.39), and Black Flag ($6.39). You can also grab Little Nightmares – Complete Edition for $7.19 before its sequel releases this year and Layers of Fear – Masterpiece Edition for $5.74 if you’re in the mood for some psychological horror.

If you’re interested in learning Japanese while you have some extra time on your hands these days, Fanatical also has a brand-new bundle that can help get you started. The Learn Japanese to Survive Complete Pack is available for just $3 (normally about $45) and includes the base game and DLC. This educational RPG has a 9/10 “Very Positive” rating on Steam, so it’s worth trying out if you have an interest in the subject.

As usual, there’s also a Star Deal available, and today it’s Payday 2, a four-player co-op shooter. You can grab this Steam game for just $1, but only for 48 hours or until it’s sold out.

Spend at least $10 in the sale, and you’ll also get a bonus game for free. Right now, Fanatical is giving away When Ski Lifts Go Wrong, a goofy physics simulation and puzzle game about building ski lifts and watching disasters happen.

As always, be sure to double-check the listing for where you can redeem these game keys. Most of them are for Steam, but some of them will be for other launchers; for example, all the Ubisoft titles must be claimed through Uplay. You can see more of our picks from the sale below and see the full collection of game deals at Fanatical. New deals are arriving every day, so keep checking back.
