Xbox One sale - Metro Exodus

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.

All of this week’s discounts can be found on the Xbox digital store and Microsoft online store. Here’s are some more highlights.
