Over the years, The Game Awards has become one of the biggest events in the industry. This year’s ceremony is happening tonight, December 6, at 8:30 PM ET (5:30 PM PT). You can expect to see accolades showered on the makers of some of the best games of 2018, along with new trailers for upcoming games, plus 10 game announcements. To celebrate the event, Microsoft has decided to put on a special sale on Xbox One games between now and December 9.
Some of the year’s biggest titles have gotten the discount treatment, including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which is down to $40 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, on sale for $48. Anyone looking to jump into Destiny 2 can grab the Forsaken Legendary Collection for $36, which comes with nearly everything that’s been released so far. But if you want all that, plus the upcoming year’s worth of content updates to go with it, you can get the Complete Collection for $70.
If you want to get caught up on the Far Cry story, you can grab Far Cry 5 for $30. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is also on sale for $30, as is the recent action/strategy game Valkyria Chronicles 4. And if racing is your thing, you can’t go wrong with Forza Horizon 4 for $39.
Smaller games are discounted as well. One of the biggest indie games of the year, Dead Cells, is down to $17. And it’s safe to say Yoku’s Island Express is among the best pinball-meets-Metroidvania games ever made; it’s on sale for just $7. And for fans of the Blue Bomber, Mega Man 11 is down to $24.
