A triple pack of Star Wars games headlines this week’s Xbox Deals with Gold and Spotlight sales.
The highlight of this week’s new Xbox promotions is the value-packed Star Wars Triple Bundle from Electronic Arts. The pack includes Star Wars: Squadrons, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition, and Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition. All three games are excellent – yup, even Battlefront II – and the bundle is a complete steal at $39.99 in the US.
This week’s Deals with Gold lineup has a familiar feel about it, with a bunch of older Ubisoft games getting discounts. We’ll shine a light on Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which is something of a forgotten gem following the direction the series has taken with Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla. It’s that rarest of games, an open-world adventure that is packed with things to do but also focused.
Focus Home Interactive is also running a publisher sale that includes the likes of Necromunda: Underhive Wars, Farming Simulator 19, and Vampyr.
Each game is playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and discounted through to December 22, 2020. Here are some more recommendations.

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.
