The best Xbox One game and accessory deals for June 2021 are here.
Whether you’re rocking an Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or Xbox One, you might be looking for a fresh game to help pass the pandemic quarantine doldrums. Luckily, there are many recent releases on deep discount right now, including Resident Evil Village, It Takes Two, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, along with bargains on some older favorites. Have a look and keep on gaming!
Resident Evil Village | $50
Just released last month, Resident Evil Village is the eighth core entry in the series and follows in the footsteps of the stellar Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It’s another first-person horror affair, this time in the sizable titular setting - although the castle with meme icon Lady Dimitrescu really steals the show. If you haven’t already checked into this survival affair, it’s $10 off at Amazon.
Watch Dogs Legion | $20
Ubisoft’s raucous, London-set open-world action affair is already $40 off at Amazon, with the Xbox version of Watch Dogs Legion optimized for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. You’ll recruit the locals to fight back against a fascist regime in what’s sure to be an entertaining pick, no matter which Xbox you’re rocking right now.
If you need an affordable extra controller for your Xbox One, Series X, or Series S, this officially-licensed PowerA wired controller costs about half as much as Microsoft’s own wireless versions. There’s a cord, obviously—but as a second or backup controller, it could be a stellar pickup. It’s $5 off the list price right now in multiple colors.
Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 | $20
Tetris is a legendary puzzler, of course—and while Puyo Puyo doesn’t have quite the same global name recognition, it’s also pretty fantastic. This mash-up pits the two puzzle experiences against each other with charming presentation and various play modes, including a cameo from dear old Sonic the Hedgehog himself. It’s half-off right now!
Yakuza: Like a Dragon | $30
Sega’s beloved Japanese role-playing crime saga returns with Yakuza: Like a Dragon, a distinctive entry with a totally new lead character and the addition of turn-based combat. It has earned rave reviews for its intriguing world and compelling characters, and you can save half off the list price right now at Amazon.
Borderlands 3 | $10
The long-awaited shoot-and-loot sequel Borderlands 3 might not have reinvented the wheel for Gearbox’s popular series, but it’s another fun and raucous shooter that’s best enjoyed with pals. We’re surprised to see it selling for just $10 at Best Buy right now for the standard version. That’s a hell of a deal, so if you’ve had even a scrap of fun with this series in the past, don’t pass up this bargain. It’s also enhanced on Xbox Series X or S if you’ve got ‘em.
Marvel’s Avengers | $25
Released last fall and recently upgraded with Xbox Series X/S enhancements and added content, Marvel’s Avengers is a surprisingly good licensed game inspired by the superhero team, seemingly taking inspiration from the cinematic version of the comic team without exactly copying the style and storylines. Here, you’ll play as young Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) as you rebuild and take control of the scattered team, plus there’s an online co-op component and loads of unlockable costumes and gear. Save $35 off the original list price at Amazon or Best Buy.
Immortals Fenyx Rising | $30
If you’ve already played through Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or just prefer Greek mythology, give Immortals Fenyx Rising a spin. This open-world game hails from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey team and explores the source material with a lighthearted tone and clear influence from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It just released in December and is already half off on Xbox One/Series X/S.
It Takes Two | $30
One of 2021’s most unique games to date is also one of the best-reviewed games of the year. It Takes Two sees a struggling couple transformed into toys right as they’re about to split, and they’ll have to work together through clever cooperative challenges to escape their pint-sized forms—and maybe rekindle that old spark in the process. Save 25% at Amazon.
The latest entry in Ubisoft’s open-world historical adventure series takes its cues from Nordic history, as you lead the Vikings into England in search of conquest. This version works on both Xbox One and the new Xbox Series X/S consoles, too, so you don’t have to worry about buying the game again or paying for an upgrade if you plan on snagging a new console soon. It’s $30 off.
