The Xbox Ultimate Sale is here and acts as the biggest sale on games from over the last 12 months as well as additional discounts on older games. Microsoft treats the Xbox Ultimate Sale as the biggest chance to save on recent titles before we hit the time of the year when game releases start to pick up again.
Here are some of the best deals available in the Xbox Ultimate Sale.
Best Xbox Ultimate Sale Deals
Far Cry 5 - 85% off
The first game we're going to pick actually breaks the rules of the sale, which states games are up to 80% off, however, Far Cry 5 is a huge 85% off in the Xbox Ultimate Sale.
This was the last mainline Far Cry game and garnered critical praise for its beautiful yet dystopian open-world but caught itself in controversy due to its political undertones which were ignored rather than addressed by Ubisoft.
The game is one of the best of the last generation and given the discount, it will keep you entertained for over 60 hours for a tiny price.
Marvel's Avengers - 40% off
While maybe not living up to expectations at release, Marvel's Avengers is well worth trying and it forever received content updates as a live service game. The Xbox Ultimate Sale offers the game at a cracking price for those who may have been unwilling to jump in at RRP.
With the new massive Wakana expansion on the horizon, now is the best time to jump into the game, with many issues from its launch fixed and content packed in.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold Edition - 70% off
While Valhalla is on sale also, we just can't ignore Odyssey as one of the best Assassin's Creed games ever, and the content you get with the Gold Edition is unreal. It's currently 70% off in the Xbox Ultimate Sale and the value for money is insane.
For the total price, you'll receive not only Odyssey and all of its expansions, which all in all is around 100+ hours of high-quality content, but you'll also receive Assassin's Creed 3 and Liberation remastered. This means three great games for one low price.
Control Ultimate Edition - 50% off
Control is one of the best single-player games in recent memory, coming from Remedy who are masters of the single-player experiences. Even if you're not overly involved in the Remedy gaming universe to appreciate all of the references to their other games, Control is still an outstanding experience.
In the Xbox Ultimate Sale, you can get the Ultimate edition at half price which includes its two major expansions also. For the very attractive price, you're looking at around 40+ hours of incredible content on one package.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition - 65% off
Shadow of the Tomb Raider recently received an Xbox Series X and S upgrade out of nowhere, and if you are yet to play this game, it's the perfect excuse to jump in. While Shadow is the finale in the recent Tomb Raider reboot, it works perfectly well as a standalone title also.
The mix of cinematic action, stealth and platforming make Tomb Raider a series that has something for everyone. Don't pass up this chance to jump into it while it's on offer as part of the Xbox Ultimate Sale.
