This week’s Xbox sales feature numerous deals across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. That’s why the TrueAchievements news team took a look at what you think is worth your time and money.
We are back! After a bit of a hiatus last week, we’re back to bring you our top picks from this week’s Xbox sales. We dug headfirst into the rather large list of Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC games to find the titles we think you should add to your collection. Of course, these are our opinions, so we invite you to give your recommendations in the comments below the article.
While Luke is out with his new TemTem friends this week, Heidi, Sean, and Tom have reached out to offer you their top picks. We were lucky though as Heidi felt guilty about not participating in the past few weeks and has offered two matches! So, friends, we welcome you to an adventure that spans a millennium, traverses continents, and helps numerous creatures great and small—while reminding us that a single minute can sometimes contain a lifetime of experiences.
Bargains from the latest Xbox sales
Heidi — Alba/Jurassic World Evolution
I haven’t been around for the last few Team Selling Tips, so in this one I’m going to be greedy and pick two games – the first of which is the wonderfully charming Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, which takes us to the island of Pinar del Mar to visit Alba’s grandparents . Alba: A Wildlife Adventure feels like a game full of sunshine. There’s all the optimism of a childhood adventure, but Alba’s vacation also turns into a mission to clean up the island, find, identify and document all of its wildlife, and save the wildlife sanctuary. Alba: A Wildlife Adventure emphasizes the message that even one person can make a big difference, as Alba and her friend Ines work to win the islanders over with a petition for the wildlife sanctuary, and carry that message with a sunny optimism . It’s a beautiful game, and the atmosphere it creates by combining its beautiful music with the peaceful sounds of nature enhances that beauty even further. Alba: A wildlife adventure would be a great addition to Xbox Game Pass, but that’s not the point. It’s a very short game – without pausing to soak up the atmosphere, you’ll likely finish it within a few hours – and it doesn’t aim to be challenging at all, as it’s aimed at a younger audience too, so feels recommending Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, although it’s discounted, like a good compromise.
Alba: A Wildlife Adventure
Small actions can make a big difference. Join Alba, a young activist, on her journey to save her beautiful island and wildlife.
Well, if you read the above, please forgive me for talking about Alba’s wholesome message of preservation and kindness, and then dove into the carnivorous anarchy of Jurassic World Evolution. Let’s safely get Alba out of our minds before we unleash the dinosaur mayhem. I’m a fan of both Jurassic World Evolution games, but I have to say that I think the first one is my favorite. The addition of managing scientists in the second game didn’t add all that much in my opinion, and overall I prefer the core gameplay loop of the first. I know we’ve all been hoping for something along the lines of Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis (so have I) and Jurassic World Evolution didn’t really start off on the strongest base, but after a few updates added more terrain and scenery options felt the game more polished. I think that “dun dun dunnn!” The moment a T.Rex is first released has the best impact in the first Jurassic World Evolution game and provides hours of gameplay; whether that means creating a dinosaur sanctuary, building a coliseum that fights dinosaurs, or just letting them loose to see how many guests they will hunt down. Yes, Alba wouldn’t approve of this type of preservation, but I still had a lot of fun with Jurassic World Evolution, so it remains my second choice, especially since it’s 75% cheaper.
Jurassic World Evolution
Step into the heart of the Jurassic franchise and build your very own Jurassic World. Bio-engineered dinosaurs that think, feel and react intelligently to the world around them, facing threats of espionage, escapes and devastating tropical storms in an uncertain world where life always finds a way.
If you haven’t played MINIT, just stop what you are doing and buy it now. Go on, you can trust me. When have I ever steered you wrong, my friends? Minit is a charming Zelda-style top-down adventure game with an intriguing and unique gameplay system where you can only play a minute before your character folds into a heap on the ground and dies. While this fairly severe limitation might sound like a nightmare to some, it’s why I love Minit. You have absolutely no time to waste in Minit, and from the moment you spawn you’ll need to explore every nook and cranny and talk to as many characters as possible to figure out why that weird 60-second loop keeps popping up occurs again. Luckily, the knowledge you gain and any items/shortcuts you find carry over to your next 60 second life. Provided you’re on the right track, the game never feels unfair or harsh while always making progress. Minit is truly a one-of-a-kind experience, and for just $3.99/£3.19/€3.99 you’re getting quite a bargain – it’s also a quick and easy finish, taking under three hours to complete.
Minit is a quirky little adventure that plays for sixty seconds at a time. Leave the comfort of your home to help unusual people, uncover countless mysteries, and defeat dangerous enemies, all in hopes of lifting a rather unfortunate curse that ends after just a minute each day. Minit is a collaboration between Kitty Calis, Jan Willem Nijman, Jukio Kallio and Dominik Johann.
Tom—The Elder Scrolls Online
I can already hear you screaming “not again” on screen, but listen to me because there’s a reason I’m back with The Elder Scrolls Online as a bestseller. Tonight, ZeniMax reveals the final DLC zone of this year that will wrap up the story of the High Isle chapter – which also happens to be the best expansion we’ve had yet! This game gives you complete freedom, and no matter what level you are, all solo content is available to you, so you can experience the game in any order you want. There aren’t many games out there that give you that. If you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, I recommend playing the game for a bit to see what you think, and if you like it, grab the sweet High Isle Collection upgrade at 50% off! It’s only a slightly longer completion than Sean’s choices above, and can be completed in under 3,000 hours. See you in Tamriel!
