This week’s Xbox Deals with Gold and Spotlight savings feature an all-time classic roguelike and a trip 14th century Aquitaine.
This week’s Deals with Gold highlight is Asobo Studio’s grim but compelling stealth survival game, A Plague Tale: Innocence. It’s an affecting experience with a strong narrative and plenty of chills. And let’s give some props to Asobo Studio, who followed up the game with the new, acclaimed edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Our other Deals with Gold picks are the Motion Twin’s masterful platformer roguelike Dead Cells, and the flawed but fun tactical RPG, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. This week’s Spotlight savings include Chasm and Soul Axiom.
If you’re looking for some big hitters, the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale is also in full swing. The lineup includes over 500 discounted games with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sayonara Wild Hearts, Forza Horizon 4, and Crackdown 4 among the highlights.
This week’s Deals with Gold and Spotlight savings run through to August 24 on the Xbox digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the complete lineup.
