Two new strategy games landed this week for PC gamers and both of these titles have quickly risen to the top of Steam's top-selling chart. 11 bit studio's Frostpunk is winning very positive reviews from gamers at 84% positive, with the survival city-builder strategy game clocking in with a list price of $29.99. For the other title, the mecha turn-based tactical strategy game BattleTech is fairing a bit worst in the review department, sitting at 69% positive and with a list price of $39.99.
Thankfully as PC gamers you never really need to pay full price, even for new games. As of writing a number of deals exist for both Frostpunk and BattleTech at up to 22% off. Both deals are courtesy of digital retailer Green Man Gaming, who happens to be running a Spring PC Game Sale as of writing. Because of said sale, there is an on-going 22% off sitewide coupon, and you've guessed it - this code works on both Frostpunk and BattleTech.

- Battletech - Digital Deluxe Edition (Steam) - $38.99 (list $50)
Both titles have modest download size compare to Triple-A titles of these days. Frostpunk is at only 4.7GB while BattleTech is at 8.6GB. While both titles have pre-order bonuses, the offering is now gone. The good news is that you didn't miss anything significant. BattleTech had an in-game cosmetic skin, while Frostpunk was dangling a 10% off pre-order discount (yep, so you're actually getting a better deal now after release).
If you're interested in either titles but you're still on the fence after watching various streams, you can check out the aggregated reviews for Frostpunk here at Metacritic, while reviews for BattleTech can be found here.
One final quick note before you splurge your hard-earn money - if you're not a BattleTech or MechWarrior franchise fan, we'll avoid the Digital Deluxe copy of BattleTech as it will not be including any additional in-game content (no Season Pass etc.) - you'll simply get access to more external digital content such as Artbook, novella, and digital comic.
