This week’s Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S digital sales feature a mix of AAA hits, DC titles, and games for Achievement hunters.
Hundreds of games are on offer in four new digital Xbox sales. A shorter than usual Deals with Gold lineup is headlined by the excellent Mafia Trilogy. Sci-fi shooter Redout: Space Assault is also recommended for those who like sci-fi and, erm, shooting.
The DC Franchise sale features a small selection of titles starring Bats and friends. Our picks from this week’s Spotlight sale include Operencia: the Stolen Sun and Raji: An Ancient Epiс.
The biggest savings can be found in the Achievement Hunter sale. There discounts for cyberpunk hit Ghostrunner, Red Dead Redemption 2, and the often overlooked Halo Wars 2. There are also reductions on a slew of titles from the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
The latest digital Xbox sales run through to May 17, 2021. 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.
