Xbox Countdown Games Sale

Save up to 50% on Xbox One and Xbox 360 games in the Xbox Countdown Sale.

The festive promotions continue with the new Xbox Countdown Sale. The sale features savings of up to 40%, with an additional 10% available to Xbox Live Gold members on selected titles.

The sale is a good opportunity to pick up some Xbox One exclusives, with Rare’s online pirate adventure, Sea of Thieves, getting a 50% discount, and Undead Labs’ zombie survival sim, State of Decay 2, reduced by 35%. Most tempting is a 35% price cut for game of the year contender, Forza Horizon 4.


Another game sure to be in that conversation is Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. The wild west adventure gets a modest 5% discount, 10% if you have Gold.

In total there are over 500 sale items to choose from, including games, DLC, and season passes. Head over to the Xbox digital games store for the full lineup in your region. The sale ends on January 3, 2019.
