It’s the most wonderful time of the year, for fans of horror games anyway. Halloween is almost here, and so are a bunch of seasonal sales on digital stores for all the major platforms and storefronts.

We’ve highlighted some of the best deals below. Most sales end on Friday, November 1, so make sure to browse before Trick or Treating. Happy Halloween!

Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store is still stumbling out of the gate when it comes to features, and more than reaping its share of criticism as it gobbles up more exclusive PC games. At least they got the seasonal sale part right. Epic is currently the only place to purchase Borderlands 3 on PC, and the Halloween Sale is offering 20% off the Deluxe Edition and 25% off the Super Deluxe Edition.

Other highlights include Control (25% off), Darksiders 3 (66% off), Thimbleweed Park (60% off), For Honor (60% off), and The Walking Dead: The Final Season (30% off).

Sale ends: November 1.


GOG’s Halloween sale features over 300 games up to 90% off, including a mix of older classics and recent releases. Classic PC games include the original Diablo (15% off), Ghost Master (90% off), and 90s adventure game series Call of Cthulhu (50% off), Gabriel Knight (35% off), Tex Murphy (75% off), and Broken Sword (75% off).

More recent releases include Cultist Simulator (33% off), Pathologic 2 (34% off), We Happy Few (50% off), and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (70% off).

Sale ends: November 4.

Nintendo eShop

With Luigi’s Mansion releasing on October 31, Nintendo’s seasonal sale is a bit more subdued this year. If you pre-purchase the game on the eShop before October 30, you can earn double the My Nintendo Gold Points.

The eShop Halloween sale is limited to certain publishers and series. The Amnesia series is 33% off, Outlast games are 70% off, THQ Nordic’s Darksiders series is 33% off, and DrinkBox’s indie games Severed and Guacamelee are 50% off. The biggest deal is Mortal Kombat 11 for 35.99 (40% off). Annoyingly, every single one of these sales has a different end time!

Sale ends: October 31 (MK 11, Amnesia), November 1 (Outlast), November 4 (DrinkBox), November 7 (THQ Nordic).

PlayStation Store

You’ll find the usual assortment of horror and horror-adjacent games on sale during Sony’s Halloween Sale, including even a few PS3 games. Catch up on some excellent action-horror series like BioShock: The Collection (75% off), Batman: Arkham Collection (70% off) and the prolific Resident Evil series (50-60% off).

It’s also a great time to jump on board the Dark Souls bandwagon with Dark Souls Remastered (50% off) and Dark Souls 3 (75% off).

Sale ends: November 1.


Steam remains the gold standard for seasonal sales with promotional events on top of fantastic sale prices. This time instead of Steam hosting its own contests, they’re highlighting in-game seasonal events and DLC across dozens of different games, including horror and non-horror. Examples include a Left 4 Dead crossover with Dying Light, new Stranger Sins DLC for Graveyard Keeper, and a Halloween event in Terraria.

But let’s face it, we’re mostly here for those delicious sales. Horror game highlights include Blair Witch (25% off), Dead by Daylight (50% off), Vampyr (66% off), Prey (50% off), Man of Medan (33% off), and Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones (15% off).

Sale ends: November 1.


Lots of zombies, devils, and mutants can be found in the Xbox Shocktober Sale. Grab State of Decay 2 (50% off), Mortal Kombat 11 (40% off), Resident Evil 2 (50% off), Alien Isolation (60% off), Rage 2 (50% off), and the Prey + Dishonored 2 Bundle (50% 0ff).

The Xbox sale also includes discounts on some select non-horror games such as Anthem (67% off), Kingdom Hearts 3 (40% off), and Fortnite: Save the World – Founders Pack (50% off).

Sale ends: October 31
