It’s a new week, which means a whole new set of digital Xbox One games is on sale on the Microsoft Store. Most of the deals this week are on indie games, thanks to the Pixel Art Perfection sale that’s running alongside the usual Spotlight and Deals with Gold sales. Let’s take a look at what games you can save money on between now and October 8.
The best deal of the week won’t cost you anything: In an effort to drum up excitement for next month’s release of Battlefield V, Battlefield 1 owners can pick up the In the Name of the Tsar and They Shall Not Pass expansions for free. Another expansion that’s on sale is Overcooked – The Lost Morsel–a particularly good buy if you grabbed Overcooked from October’s Games With Gold and want more cooking craziness.
Also on sale is Destiny 2’s Expansion Pass, which gives you both year-one expansions. You’ll need those if you already own vanilla Destiny 2 and want to upgrade to Forsaken. Another blockbuster title that’s on sale this week is Star Wars Battlefront II, which you can grab for $10 / £11.25. Star Wars Battlefront: Ultimate Edition is also on sale for $4.50 / £5.25.
Now for the indie games. Dead Cells has been getting a lot of buzz ever since its console release in August; it’s on sale for $20 / £16. Samus won’t be coming to Xbox anytime soon, but the Metroid-inspired game Axiom Verge is on sale this week for half off. You can also test your platforming reflexes with Slime-san: Superslime Edition for $10 / £8 or pick up the story-based game Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition for the low price of $3 / £2.40.
