A cyberpunk adventure, an intense rhythm action game, and a sandbox playground are our pick from this week’s new Xbox digital game sales.
This week’s crop of Xbox One discounts doesn’t feature many AAA titles, but there are come choice indie efforts that are worth attention.
Our Deals with Gold highlight is State of Mind, a solid cyberpunk adventure from Daedalic Entertainment that explores themes of childhood and transhumanism. The game is something of a slow burn, but it remains thought-provoking and engaging throughout its 12+ hour duration.
Our highlight from the ID Super Saver sale is the complete opposite in terms of pace. Thumper is best described using developer Drool’s own descriptor of rhythm violence. It’s an intense experience and one best played with the lights turned out and your headphones on.
Finally, TerraTech is our Spotlight Sale pick. It’s an open-world, sandbox adventure game with a refreshing focus on vehicle creation and base building It’s also well supported with new content and events by developer Payload Studios.
All five sales run through to November 10, 2020. Here are some more recommendations.
