Video game publisher Focus Home Interactive launches a new sale of Xbox One titles.
You have to give Focus Home Interactive some credit. Their name isn’t top of the list when most people think of leading video game publishers, but they have quietly put together an impressive catalogue of interesting, inventive games.
If you’ve missed some of the their more recent releases, a new Xbox One sale gives players the chance to dive in with discounts of up to 80% on offer.
Pick of the bunch is Vampyr, Dontnod’s dark tale of death, temptation, and desire. The game – which we quite liked – gets a tempting 50% discount.
Giants Software’s comprehensive simulation of tractors, crops, and animal husbandry, Farming Simulator 17, is also discounted by a massive 75%. Also on the list is Deck 13’s hardcore action RPG, The Surge, a crop of Warhammer titles, and Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments.
Head over to the Xbox One digital store, or the Microsoft web store, to see the full list of titles available in your region.

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.
