The Best Strategy Games on PC (and Where to Get them Cheap)

The strategy genre is a broad church, containing everything from deadly serious reenactments of Second World War battles to nonsensical cartoon conflicts between plants and zombies. 

That means there’s almost certainly a strategy game for you out there, even if you’ve never thought of yourself as a tactical supremo. We’ve taken the liberty of picking out five of our favorites – and you can pick them all up for a song at

In case you don’t already know, is a platform that lets sellers make a bit of money for their unwanted activation codes, and players to grab themselves a bargain. It’s a bit like eBay for game keys.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

This one is a no-brainer. The long-running Civ series is basically chess for the digital era. It sees you steering a civilization from its humble beginnings all the way into the space age, all the while competing with rival civilizations on a sprawling hex map. 

Slay the Spire

A leading example of the modern digital deck-building genre, Slay the Spire is a fast, addictive strategy game that sees you working your way up a tower littered with monsters, bosses, chests, and more.


Like Civilization, the XCOM series has outlasted several console generations and technological revolutions. 2K’s sci-fi masterpiece has stayed the course thanks to its incredibly well-balanced tactical gameplay. 

South Park: The Stick of Truth

South Park: The Stick of Truth is like an extended episode of the show that you can play, with the same animation, the same voices, and the same writers. Better still, it’s a genuinely enjoyable RPG with a deep progression system and slick turn-based battles.

Into the Breach

Into the Breach is Subset Games’s follow-up to FTL: Faster Than Light. Like its predecessor, Into the Breach is fast, accessible, and beautifully presented. Unlike its predecessor, it features turn-based battles and mechs.
