The Xbox Countdown to 2018 sale is packed with some of this year's most exciting video game titles, which is great news for anyone who may have fallen behind in 2017. The annual sale usually highlights best-sellers, fan favorites and breakout indie titles, all of which this year's countdown is delivering on in all of the best ways. Whether you're into a single-player action game or massive multiplayer madness, there's probably something worth picking up before the discounts run out.

Triple-A titles are all over this selection, including Call of Duty: WWII, which is 25% off for players with Xbox Gold memberships. Star Wars: Battlefront II, which just got its Resurrection update to celebrate the release of The Last Jedi, is 30% off for everyone, and 40% off for players with Xbox Gold. There are plenty of other mainstream hits, like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the digital premium edition of Final Fantasy XV, Assassin's Creed: Origins, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, so you won't find any shortage of hard-core action games there.

Cuphead, which was arguably this year's biggest hit in the indie gaming space thanks to its unique animation and challenging game play, is 15% off for a limited time on the Microsoft Store, but you can find it at the same discount on Steam and other platforms as well.

Every new day of the Countdown brings a new daily deal, and today's is for the Darksiders Fury's Collection - War and Death, which sits at 75% off for Xbox Gold, and 65% percent off for everyone else. The collection includes both the Darksiders Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, all in one. Players take on the role of War, the first Horseman of the Apocalypse, as he takes on the forces of Hell on a quest for vengeance.


The sale is live now, and the deals change almost every day, so get on it before the year ends.
