Save on No Man’s Sky, Dead Cells, Hollow Knight, and a bunch of Back Compat games with this week’s new Xbox One discounts.
Four new sales begin today offering savings on hundreds of Xbox One and Xbox 360 games.
The [email protected] promotion features prices cuts on a range of top-notch indie games. Our picks include Team Cherry’s masterful Metroidvania, Hollow Knight, Camp Santo’s engrossing adventure mystery, Firewatch, and Chucklefish’s wonderfully strategic head-scratcher, Wargroove. There’s also a chance to pick up No Man’s Sky with a 25% discount ahead of its next big update.
This week’s Deals with Gold aren’t as impressive but The Escapists, Just Cause 4, and Surviving Mars are all worth a look. There’s also a spotlight sale which is most notable for a slew of discounts on the Forza racing series. A 40% price drop for the Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4 bundle is our pick.
Finally, there’s a massive sale on hundreds of Back Compat Xbox 360 games. Highlights include Bayonetta, Beyond Good & Evil, Dragon Age: Origins, and all three of Lionhead’s Fable RPGs.
Here are some more recommendations. To see the full range of discounted games, visit the Xbox Game Store or the Microsoft online store.

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.
