Five new Xbox One sales include big games from Capcom and Ubisoft, and there are double discounts for Xbox Live Gold members.
In addition to this week’s crop of Deals with Gold and Spotlight discounts, Xbox One owners can also save in publisher promos from Capcom and Ubisoft. Plus, there’s a Double Discounts sale for Xbox Live Gold members. Let’s rattle through a few highlights.
The Double Discounts sale includes a selection of big games, but we’ll highlight a few less obvious choices. Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is not wholly successful, but it’s an ambitious, and idiosyncratic survival adventure. We’re also fond of painterly World War I story, 11-11 Memories Retold. And Puyo Puyo Champions is pure puzzle game perfection.
The first of this week’s publisher sales comes from Capcom and includes all the Resident Evils, various editions of Monster Hunter World, and Devil May Cry 5.
The Ubisoft Forward sale follows Sunday’s reveal event. Some hefty discounts give players the chance to catch up with the Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Watch Dogs franchises ahead of their new instalments.
This week’s Deals with Gold include savings on Overcooked! 2, Red Dead Redemption 2, Steep, and Vampyr. The influential Dear Esther is our pick from this week’s lineup of Spotlight discounts.
All five sales run through to July 20 on the Xbox digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here are some more of highlights.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
