We’ve seen some big sales this season, ranging from the Steam Summer Sale to the PlayStation Mid-Year Sale. Now Xbox owners can get in on the fun, because the Ultimate Game Sale is live on the Microsoft Store. Between now and July 30, over 700 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games and add-ons are on sale for up to 65% off. And if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member, you get an extra 10% off select titles. Let’s dive in and what kind of deals are on offer.
Whether you’re currently a member or not, you can save $20 off a 12-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold, bringing the online service down to $40 / £26.50. In addition to letting you play online, the subscription also gets you free games each month, making it one of the best deals around for Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners.
Microsoft’s other gaming-related subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, is also on sale right now. For $10 / £8, you can get a three-month membership that lets you download and play a selection of over a hundred games on your Xbox One, including first-party games the same day they’re released.
As expected, many Xbox One-exclusive games are discounted during the Ultimate Game Sale. You can get Gears of War 4 for $20 / £17 and the console exclusive PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for $22.50 / £19. The cartoonish platformer Cuphead is on sale for $16 / £13.39, while Quantum Break is $20 / £14.40 and ReCore is down to $15 / £11.
If you’re prepared to die, you can pick up Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin for $10 / £8 or its sequel Dark Souls III for $15 / £12.50. Middle-earth: Shadow of War recently got a major update, and the Game of the Year Edition is on sale for the surprisingly low price of $10 / £12.
Far Cry 5, which just got some Mars DLC, is on sale for $40 / £36 (DLC not included). You can get yourself ready for this fall’s Destiny 2: Forsaken release by grabbing Destiny 2 and the Expansion Pass for $20 / £16.50.
