Xbox Countdown Sale cuts prices on AC Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion and more

Technology

As January inches ever closer, Microsoft have launched their ‘Countdown’ sale – appropriately titled, as I think we’re all counting down the days until 2020 is finally finished. The sale runs until January 3rd (right about the time the hangover should wear off) and covers several hundred games, including some of this year’s biggest titles.

If you’re looking to test out a new Series X or Series S console, there’s plenty of options, including 40% off Immortals Fenyx Rising – not bad for a game that’s hardly two weeks old. You can also get Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for 30% off. The entire East Anglian coastline, yours for little more than £40. Who could say no to that?

Here’s a quick overview of the best deals on offer right now:

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War for £44.99
Watch Dogs Legion for £35.99
Marvel’s Avengers for £29.99
Yakuza: Like a Dragon for £41.24
Red Dead Online for £4.49
Star Wars Squadrons for £20.99
Resident Evil 3 for £16.49
Fifa 21 for £29.99

The eagerly anticipated PlayStation Store January sale begins… tomorrow, counter-intuitively enough, at least according to the digital rumour mill. Said rumour mill also claims there may be PS5 exclusives like the Demon’s Souls remake for sale. A lovely idea, albeit an unlikely one. Check back with our Deals Page tomorrow to see what’s what.
