Save up to 90% on great Xbox One games in this week’s Deals with Gold and Shocktober in Summer sales.

There’s a distinctly spooky feel to this week’s crop of Xbox One savings. The Shocktober in Summer Sale brings some chills to the season with discounts on games including Alien: Isolation, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, Blair Witch, and Layers Of Fear 2.

This week’s Deals with Gold lineup includes some recent critical hits with sizeable price cuts on Journey to the Savage Planet, Greedfall, and Red Dead Redemption 2.


If you like board games, we also recommend digital strategy RPG Armello, which is part of the week’s new Spotlight lineup. It’s joined by games including Close to the Sun and Archaica: The Path of Light.

Finally, the Add-On sale discounts a range of season passes and DLC from games including TitanFall 2, The Witcher 3, Cities: Skylines, and Jurassic World Evolution.

All four sales run through to July 6 on the Xbox digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here are some more recommendations from the game-centric promotions.
