This week’s Xbox One game deals are now live, and while not as many hard hitters are available when compared to past weeks, there are still a number of great games and deals. A couple of EA Sports titles have hit their lowest prices yet. Madden NFL 20 and NHL 20 are both $12 this week, making it a great time to pick up a sports game before the new one releases–and with the current pandemic, it’s sure to keep you busy for the next couple of weeks.
One of 2019’s best games also sees a nice discount. Outer Wilds is only $15 right now, and if you’re in the mood for exploring the cosmos and a number of gorgeous, mysterious planets, then you can’t do better than Outer Wilds. It scored a 9/10 in our Outer Wilds review for its captivating story, non-linear exploration, and visually distinct planets.

Other discounted titles include State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition for $22.49. If you’re a Game Pass subscriber, you already have access to it–otherwise, you can subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $1 for your first month. You can also snag the loot-shooter Shadow Warrior 2 for $32, which combines excellent first-person shooting action with potty humour.
A number of PlayWay’s simulator games are also on sale. Car Mechanic Simulator is $18 and Thief Simulator is $15, while my personal favourite, House Flipper, is $22.49. The latter has you taking on jobs to clean and furnish people’s homes, while at the same time buying houses of your own and flipping them for a profit. It may sound like a chore, but it’s actually quite relaxing and meditative.
