Xbox One’s Critically Acclaimed Game Sale Includes Red Dead 2, Celeste

It’s a great week for Xbox One deals—in addition to discounted Square Enix games and wireless controllers, Xbox Live just launched yet another sale you won’t want to miss. The Critically Acclaimed Sale went live today and includes some of the best game titles released in recent years, including Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Celeste, Dead Cells, and more. This batch of game deals has markdowns up to 75% off, and you can claim them for the next week.

Every one of these games is worth picking up (depending on your interests), but let’s take a quick look at the most notable deals. Mountain-climbing platformer Celeste, which was one of the best games of last year, is marked down 50%; you can grab it for $10 right now. Red Dead Redemption 2 has been going on sale frequently, but if you’ve been waiting to get it on Xbox One, you can pick up its standard edition for only $40.19. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been out for nearly four years but is still considered an RPG masterpiece—so if you don’t own it, consider picking up the standard edition on sale for $12 (or the Complete edition for just $15). Rogue-inspired metroidvania game Dead Cells is also marked down to $17.49.

Several excellent puzzle platformers are also marked down, including a bundle for Playdead’s acclaimed titles Inside and Limbo. Little Nightmares’ Complete edition is only $9 and includes the DLC Secrets of the Maw. The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories is a wild, emotional adventure with a surprising ending—and it’s on sale for $19.49.

Quite a few of these game deals also overlap with the indie games sale happening in the Nintendo Eshop right now—if you own a Switch, you may want to take a glance at that sale too.
