Save on Red Dead Redemption 2, Celeste, Tekken 7, and Batman: Return to Arkham in two new Xbox One sales.
This week’s new Xbox One promotions includes discounts on some of last year’s most acclaimed games, and celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Caped Crusader.
The Critically Acclaimed Sale is headlined by a 33% discount for last year’s biggest release, Red Dead Redemption 2.
However, it’s the sparkling crop of indies that catch our eye. Celeste is a steal at half price, and the infuriating but addictive Dead Cells is reduced by 30%. And we’ll always take the opportunity to recommend Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, as well as Yoku’s Island Express, and Moonlighter.
The Batman Celebration sale includes all four of Rocksteady’s superhero games spread across Arkham Knight, and the Return to Arkham collection. There’s no sign of the underrated Arkham Origins, however. Younger players can tackle Gotham’s cavalcade of villains in Lego Batman 3.
