Fresh off their mega X019 presentation in London yesterday, Microsoft has launched the shortest of Xbox Flash Sales on a handful of games including Gears 5, Destiny 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
You'll need to act fast, though, as these prices will only be available until the end of the day. If you're looking for some highlights, then I've picked out a few of them for you.
Let's start with the Sea Of Thieves Anniversary Edition for 50% off. We already knew this discount was coming after Microsoft announced it in their first wave of Black Friday deals. I think you can expect this one to return throughout the Black Friday period, though.
What else do we have? Well, there's the Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition at 55% off. This version of the game includes all the bonus story content from the Special Edition, plus Bonus Outfits for your online character, Rank Bonuses, the Black Chestnut Thoroughbred and free access to the Survivor Camp Theme. A few neat little extras, then, all for even less than what you'd be paying for the base game.
Here's the full list. Before you go too wild, it's important to know that some of these are unquestionably trash. And we can't help feel a little ripped off that there's a whole bunch of super special editions in there when we'd be just as happy for the standard edition for cheaper. Sadface. Oh well, there's bound to be something better when the actual Xbox One Black Friday deals arrive.
