While the Xbox Series X just came out a few weeks ago, it’s very unlikely we’ll see the console or any of its games on sale anytime soon. However, hidden deep on microsoft.com, you’ll find Watch Dogs: Legion on sale. Right now, you can score this title for $30, or half off the third installment of the widely popular video game series.

This action/adventure game from Ubisoft takes place in the near future in London, England, which is on the verge of collapse. All-seeing surveillance state and private military are in control, while the fate of the city is in the hands of DedSec, a hacker group that wants to recruit a resistance and fight back for freedom.

On sale for $30 (was $60), The Last of Us Part II for PlayStation 4 is set five years after the first game and follows Ellie and Abby continuing to survive in a post-apocalyptic US. Hint: The decisions made in the first game come back to haunt the characters in the second. This is one of the best games of 2020 and it’s half off right now.

“I have played it three times,” shared a delighted gamer. “On each play through, I found something new, which I most likely missed because of the insane attention to detail in this game. It all started to make sense after my second play through and I think that The Last of Us Part II is one of the best storytelling masterpieces out there.”
