Between Steam’s Summer Sale and Amazon Prime Day, there’s been a ton of buzz around gaming deals these past few weeks, and that will only continue to escalate when Prime Day officially kicks off on Monday, July 15. But amidst all the other retailers who are throwing their own sales to get in on the shopping craze, the Xbox Store has quietly added a new batch of Xbox game discounts as it does at the start of every week. And if you’re into platforming games, you’ll definitely want to check out this week’s offering.
You can save up to 70% on critically acclaimed platformers like Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove for $18.74 (25% off), Celeste for $12 (40% off), and Guacamelee 2: Complete Edition for only $9 (60% off) this week. Both Celeste and Guacamelee 2 earned 9/10 in GameSpot’s reviews and are must-plays; Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (the complete edition of the 2014 2D side-scroller) earned an 8/10 and is also a great deal. You’ll also find games like Yooka-Laylee for $10 (75% off) and A Hat in Time for $15 (50% off) and other platformers for just a few bucks, so you’re sure to find something in your budget.
Also worth mentioning is a sale on various DLC and loot for free-to-play Xbox One games. You can save on various upgrades for games like Paladins, Smite, Neverwinter, and World of Warships this week, so check out that batch of deals and see if your favorite free-to-play game is included.
Keep an eye out for more Xbox One deals starting this weekend and ramping up next week as Prime Day kicks into full gear. Expect games, wireless controllers, console bundles, and more to see serious markdowns as retailers compete to offer the best deals. Walmart already began offering an Xbox One S bundle with a bonus game, controller, and headset for just $300 this week, but unfortunately it’s already sold out. Keep checking back, though, as it’ll likely be restocked. GameSpot will be breaking down all the best Xbox One, PS4, and Switch deals are they start going live, so stay tuned for our coverage.
