Save up to 80% on some spooky and scary games in three new Xbox One sales.
Following on from the launch of last week’s PlayStation Halloween sale, a range of seasonal discounts are live – or should that be undead – on the Xbox digital games store.
Our picks from the Shocktober sale include Creative Assembly’s suspenseful sci-fi shocker, Alien: Isolation, which is reduced by 60%. There’s also a chance to grab 20% off Borderlands 3 and 30% off DayZ.
If you read our recent feature on the state of the Dead Rising series, the entire collection is now on sale. The first and fourth instalments are our recommendations. Other Shocktober highlights include Metro Exodus, Darksiders III and Little Nightmares.
This week’s Deals with Gold and Spotlight picks include the wonderful Owlboy, Sonic Mania and Mafia III.

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.
