Xbox Sale Makes Popular $60 AAA Just $2.99

A new Xbox sale has presented an exciting opportunity for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to purchase a highly acclaimed Xbox One game at a significantly discounted price of $2.99. This represents an impressive 95% discount from the game's original price of $60, resulting in a savings of $57. However, it's important to note that this exclusive deal for XCOM 2, developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K, is limited to subscribers of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Released in 2016, XCOM 2 is a turn-based tactics game that serves as the sequel to the critically acclaimed XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which was rebooted in 2012. With an 88 Metacritic score upon release, XCOM 2 stands among the highest-rated games of the year, alongside titles such as Inside, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Overwatch, DOOM, Dark Souls III, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine.

According to the official pitch for the game, Earth has undergone significant changes as humanity offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces twenty years ago. XCOM, the last line of defense for the planet, was left shattered and scattered. In XCOM 2, the aliens have assumed control of Earth, constructing gleaming cities that promise a bright future while hiding a sinister agenda, eliminating any who oppose their rule.

The blurb further describes the game, stating that a faction of XCOM forces, perpetually on the run and facing insurmountable odds, must rally a global resistance to eradicate the alien threat. Their struggle for humanity's survival unfolds at the edges of the world, where a glimmer of freedom remains, and they aim to ignite a global resistance to ultimately eliminate the alien menace.

Please note that the availability and pricing of the game may vary depending on the region and the duration of the sale.


Regrettably, the exact duration of this offer remains uncertain as the Microsoft Store listing does not disclose the specific window of availability. While it is undoubtedly a limited-time discount, it is possible that the deal may have already expired by the time you read this.
