The 4th of July weekend is almost upon us, and since this year the holiday falls on a Wednesday, many of us are going to have a lot of time on our hands. Sure, there are barbecues and pool parties to go to and you might want to spend a little bit of time outdoors, but there are bugs and thunderstorms, and sunscreen is expensive. Maybe instead, you want to stay in the air conditioning. You can have your margaritas and grilled snacks right there on the couch where it’s cool and bug-free. We’re here to help you out. There are some great deals on PS4 this holiday weekend. They’re having their mid-year sale. If you’ve got a PS Plus membership, so much the better. Here are the best deals for PS4 this holiday weekend.

Fancy a good flick? The Marvel mega-hit Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman is on sale right now. It was originally $19.99, but now you can get it for $16.99. Looking for something lighter? Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok was originally $19.99, but it’s on sale for $16.99. If you’re more into some racing action, The Fate of the Furious, the extended director’s cut edition is on sale for $9.99, down from its original $14.99.

The action-adventure FPS Far Cry 5 from Ubisoft came out in March. The game takes place in the fictional Hope County, Montana, where charismatic preacher Joseph Seed and the Eden’s Gate cult rule the roost, and a junior deputy sheriff trapped there has to work with the resistance to save the county.

Right now, you can get UFC 3: Icon Edition bundle for $41.99, and PS Plus members can get it for $38.99. The game was originally $69.99.If you’ve yet to play the Fallout games, you’re missing out. Fallout 4 is a post-apocalyptic romp through “The Commonwealth,” in the year 2287, 10 years after the events of Fallout 3 and 210 years after the big ole nuclear war that destroyed the country. You play the “Sole Survivor” in Vault 111. You see some bad things and set out on an adventure. Right now, Fallout 4: G.O.T.Y. (Game of the Year edition) is on sale for $35.99, down from the original $59.99. PS Plus members can get it for $29.99. 

Is it too sunny for you? Perhaps you’d prefer a dungeon crawler like Diablo from Blizzard Entertainment. The series is set in the fantasy world of Sanctuary, where you have to battle the demons lead by Diablo. Right now on PS4, you can get Diablo: Eternal Collection for $35.99, down from the original $59.99. PS Plus members can get it for $29.99. That’s a lot of demon killing bang for your buck.

If stealthy murder is more your speed, there is a sale on Assassin’s Creed Origins Gold Edition bundle. Assassin’s Creed Origins from Ubisoft is the 10th major game in the series and was released last October. Set in Egypt in the Ptolemaic period, the game follows Bayek and looks at the origin of the war between the Brotherhood of the Assassins and the Order of the Ancients. This one got pretty good reviews and it’s worth a look. If you’re on board, you can get it for $49.99, down from $99.99. That’s the bundle, but if you just want the full game, you can get it for $29.99, down from $59.99.

Destroy All Humans! from Pandemic Studios follows the Furon aliens who have appeared in 1959 in the United States. The title pretty much says it all.
