These are the best Xbox One deals from the Spring Sale

by March 22, 2016

Microsoft has discounted more than 150 games on the Xbox Store’s Spring Sale, with up to 60 percent off select games and even more for Xbox Live Gold members. That is way too many games, so I’ve picked out eight of the best deals and bundled them up with helpful snippets from our official GR+ reviews.

Even if you don’t normally shell out for a Gold membership, you may want to sign up to get the best deals this time around. Microsoft is currently offering month-long Xbox Live Gold subscriptions for just a dollar to non-members, which will immediately pay for itself if you buy a game or two. These deals are live from now through March 28, 2016, with the Gold discount presented first and the regular discount second.

Battlefield 4 Premium Edition was $59.99 / £54.99, now 67% / 60% off: “Yes, I drove a tank through a house, and collapsed it. Yes, I beached a jetski to roadkill a man. Yes, I sat on a tower with a sniper-rifle and shot a man out of a helicopter. Moments. Memorable moments.”

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition was $59.99 / £59.99, now 50% / 40% off: “If you were vaguely interested in the couch co-op of Diablo 3 on consoles, but held off for whatever reason, the Ultimate Evil Edition is a strong reason to finally take the plunge.”

Halo 5: Guardians was $59.99 / £44.99, now 35% / 25% off: “Playing out over vast maps taking in all manner of geographical and architectural variations – and riddled with intricate, alternative routes – [Warzone mode] is a wider, yet more purposeful, evolution of the old Big Team Battle set up, with more options, more strategy, and far more scope. “

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain was $59.99 / £59.99, now 40% / 30% off: “MGS5 is a masterpiece. It’s hard to imagine another AAA game that will be allowed a five-year development cycle, yet feel so completely the work of one man. A game where you can visit a prisoner’s cell and hear Joy Division, just because it’s the director’s favourite band.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider was $59.99 / £49.99, now 35% / 25% off: “Every leap, roll and zip-line descent has just the right amount of plausibility to make you think ‘yeah, she could do that’, especially when her face is telling you she has no idea how she just did that. The result is an adventure that plays like a video game should, but looks like an action movie.”

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition was $29.99 / £23.99, now 75% / 67% off: “When Sleeping Dogs grabs hold of you it absolutely refuses to let go. You’ll be amazed by the sheer amount of content, and how compelled you’ll be to consume every drop of it. You’ll want to unlock every costume, complete every side mission, and play until there isn’t a single drop of Hong Kong left for you to see.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was $49.99 / £34.99, now 50% / 40%: “The Witcher 3 is at its best when you choose solely to wander, taking sidequests from peasants and contracts from town noticeboards. Freed from the convolutions of the main plot, it’s a varied and exciting realisation of the Ronin fantasy.”
