Some of the most popular video games out there are currently on sale this week through Microsoft’s Xbox Live Deals With Gold program. The list of discounted Xbox titles highlights great deals and huge markdowns for The Division and Watch Dogs.
According to a post on Major Nelson, Tom Clancy’s The Division is currently available for Xbox Live Gold members with 40 percent discount, which means the Xbox One version is now priced at $35.99, compared to the usual $59.99 price. The online action role-playing game, which initially hit the shelves March this year, takes place in an “immersive and realistic urban open world.” The description for the game reads below, grabbed from the official website.
“Everything starts on Black Friday, when a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and society starts to collapse into chaos. You are humanity’s last hope: a member of The Division, a unit of sleeper agents activated to save what remains.”
As for other The Division news, a major game update is currently in development. Patch 1.4 is set for release this October although its exact date of arrival is yet to be revealed by game publisher Ubisoft. According to PlayStation Lifestyle, The Division Update 1.4 will be bigger than other patches released and will “practically revamp all character balancing in the game,” concentrating more on “closing the gap between optimized characters and non-optimized characters.”
“As part of Update 1.4 we also want to bring back the shooter feeling, add more decision making and hard choices when building your character and add more variety to the viable builds,” Ubisoft shared, via a post on the game’s official website.
Aside from the standard version, Tom Clancy’s The Division Gold Edition on Xbox One also comes with a special discounted price, although it is not through Microsoft’s Deals With Gold program but with this week’s Spotlight Sale. Xbox Games Store is now offering it with 45 percent discount.
Xbox Live Gold members can also take advantage of discounts available for Watch Dogs, an open-world action-adventure third-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal. The latest Deals with Gold offers are making the 2014 video game half the price cheaper this week. Specifically, those with Xbox Live Gold membership can get the Xbox One version for only $15. Meanwhile, Spotlight Sale is offering a generous markdown (60 percent) for Watch Dogs Complete Edition, available for active Xbox Live subscribers.
In this game, players take on the role of Aiden Pearce, “a brilliant hacker and former thug whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy.”
“Now on the hunt for those people who have hurt your family, you will be able to monitor and hack all who surround you while manipulating the city’s systems to stop traffic lights, download personal information, manipulate the electrical grid and more,” the game description further noted, as posted on Metacritic.
With the amazing Watch Dogs deals presently available for Xbox One owners with Xbox Live membership, now seems to be a great opportunity for them to grab their own copy of Watch Dogs and experience the game before the highly-anticipated sequel arrives next month.
Watch Dogs 2’s official release date is slated for November 15, 2016. See below IGN’s exclusive reveal video of Watch Dogs 2’s False Profit mission.
