It’s still boiling hot out. The sidewalks are melting. Cats are sprawled across the sidewalk. Even a quick trip to the store to get snacks drenches you with sweat. It’s not worth going outside. (You already got the snacks, after all. In the future, just order those things and have them delivered!) If you’re looking for something to do indoors, we’ve got you covered. Check out the best deals on Xbox One for the week ending August 12!
The Bethesda QuakeCon Sale is happening right now, and it only goes until Monday, meaning you have just a few days left to get on these deals. First off, we have Elderscrolls Online, Summerset Collector’s Edition. This MMORPG was released back in 2014, and it’s set in the continent of Tamriel. You can play as a Nord, Redguard, Breton or Imperial if you want to play as a human. You can be an Elf — a Dunmer, an Alter, a Bosmer or an Orsimer. You can also play as an animal race, the Khajiit or the Argonians. (The Khajiit have the best voiceovers of course.) If you feel like questing this weekend from the comfort of your couch, you can grab this for $44.99, down from $59.99. Use the extra money for some super cold soda.
You can also pick up Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the Digital Deluxe Edition this weekend. This one is a sequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order and is set in an alternate 1961 after the Nazi victory in WWII. This first-person shooter is on sale right now for $40.00, down from $79.99.
If you want to be all stealthy, you can pick up the Dishonored 2 expansion pack Dishonored: Death of the Outsider Deluxe Bundle. You play as Billie Lurk, a former assassin who is searching for her mentor Daud and works to kill the supernatural being the Outsider. You can pick this up for $30 right now, down from $59.99.
In the mood for dealing with the post-apocalyptic world? Of course you are. It’s so hot that it’s starting to feel like that anyway. Plus, it’s probably good training, the way things are going in the world. You can pick up Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition for a mere $15 right now. If you want to Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition together, you can get that for $40, down from the original $79.99. You can also get The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition alone for $20.00, from $39.99.
There are a couple other duo game deals in this QuakeCon sale. You can also pick up Prey and Dishonored 2 for $26.00, down from $64.99, or you can get DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus together for $26.40, from the original $79.99.
Outside of the QuakeCon sale, you can get Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Digital Deluxe Edition for a mere $9.00, down from $44.99. Or pick up Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst for $8.00, usually $19.99. You can celebrate Lara Croft and her journey through the years with Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration for $15.00 from $59.99, or Fe for just $8.00 from $19.99. Just Cause 3 is on sale for $6.00 from $29.99, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, the complete season for just $6.80, down from $16.99.
If you don’t feel like going across the room to get the controller, or bothering to work one, maybe a movie is in order. There are some great deals here this weekend, starting with Black Panther. (All the movies this week come with bonus features, by the way.) The wildly popular Marvel film is on sale for $14.99. You can pick up the horror film A Quiet Place (before someone spoils it for you) starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski for $12.99. A Wrinkle in Time, directed by Ava DuVernay is on sale for $15.99. Hey, something you can watch with your kids! Or you could pick up Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson for $14.99. Feeling wild? The Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau can wow you with its effects for $14.99. The bonus features are definitely worth it here. If there are no kids in the house or you're just really permissive, Deadpool is on sale for $9.99.
If you’re in a mutant mood, Xbox has a bunch of stuff for you. You can pick up The X-Men Collection which includes X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse for $34.99, down from $64.99.
