Xbox games sale lets you boost your library before the Xbox Series X releases

Xbox sale

Microsoft is hosting a digital sale on a number of Xbox games ahead of the Xbox Series X launch – and since the console is backwards compatible with games from the three previous generations of Xbox machines, it might be worth considering a few of these. See all the Xbox game deals here if you're in the US, or here if you're in the UK

Highlights include Madden NFL 21, the most recent in the mega-successful EA Sports series, which has dropped to $40/£40. The recently-released Star Wars: Squadrons is just $29.99/£31.49, too. Ubisoft titles like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Far Cry 5 and Ghost Recon: Wildlands are also part of the sale. Players who enjoy the idea of some hardcore sword combat might also want to consider Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – one of 2019's best games.

The discounts go back surprisingly far – you can even hoover up a few classics like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the original Star Wars: Battlefront 2 right now. All of the games we've mentioned above are compatible with Xbox Series S and X, according to their respective store pages.
