Microsoft has kicked off Xbox Live’s annual Black Friday sale, and as always, the sheer number of games on sale is overwhelming. Hundreds of games and pieces of DLC are now on sale, and while the bulk of those are on Xbox One-specific games, there are Smart Delivery-enabled Xbox Series X/S games on sale, too. You can play the entire Xbox One library on the next-gen systems with various improvements, making this a sale of particular interest to those who might be new to owning an Xbox.
In terms of Smart Delivery games–those that provide access to Xbox One and native Series X/S versions for one price–you can get Control: Ultimate Edition for $20; this includes not just one of 2019’s best games, but also its two DLC expansions. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available for $26 and just received Xbox Series X/S enhancements allowing for 120fps gameplay if you have a compatible TV. And Marvel’s Avengers, ahead of adding Kate Bishop as a playable character, is down to $30.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, our 2019 Game of the Year, is down to $39, and the recently launched Watch Dogs: Legion is on sale for $40.19. Although the brand-new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is not on sale on Xbox Live, you can get a bundle with Valhalla and Legion for $91.29, saving you almost $19 off the standard price. If you’d prefer to go all Assassin’s Creed, you can get a bundle with Valhalla, Odyssey, and Origins for $80.
