Save on games including Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2, and Anthem in this week’s new Xbox sales.
Xbox One owners searching for something new to play don’t have to look far this week, with a slew of games discounted across four new sales on the Xbox Digital Games Store.
The headline act is a Gamescom sale featuring titles from some of the developers and publishers in attendance at this year’s expo in Cologne. Recommended games include Devil May Cry 5, which gets a 40% price cut, as does Capcom’s marvellous remake of Resident Evil 2. There’s also a modest 20% price drop for FromSoftware’s latest opus, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Also running is an EA publisher sale, which features price reductions for Battlefield V, Anthem, and Burnout Paradise Remastered among many others.
This week’s Spotlight and Deals with Gold discounts include Alien: Isolation, Kingdom Hearts III, Mortal Kombat 11, and Thumper. Visit the Xbox digital games store, or the Microsoft online store to see the full lineup of discounted titles in your region. Here are some more of our favourites.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
