Gears Tactics and Marvel’s Avengers are among the highlights from this week’s lineup of Xbox digital game store discounts.
The Last Chance Sale launches today on the Xbox digital games store, and although we’re not entirely sure what the sale’s name refers to, it features some excellent games.
One such title is Gears Tactics, the superb turn-based strategy spin-off from Splash Damage and The Coalition. It’s a brilliant game that is faithful to the franchise, tells a ripping yarn, and is also an impressive cross-gen showcase.
Other “Last Chance” deals of note include sizeable discounts on Gears 5, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Rare Replay. And if you’re looking for a smart, polished, cyberpunk-influenced game right now, Deux Ex: Mankind Divided says hello.
This week’s Deal with Gold lineup includes savings on The Surge 2 and Catherine. And Image & Form’s two SteamWorld Dig titles are our picks from the latest Spotlight sale.
Each discounted game is playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and discounted through to January 11, 2021. Here are some more recommendations.

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.
