This week's Xbox sale is themed around DLC and the countless additional hours we get to spend in some of our favourite games. In keeping with that, we've brought you five of our favourite content packs from the available selection. Our esteemed leader Luke isn't featured this week because he has been battling his way through the underworld and grinding like a maniac, and we're still waiting for him to re-emerge, but he'd probably have picked the Yakuza: Like a Dragon Karaoke Set. Luckily, Heidi couldn't decide which horse to back, and boldly offered to take two for the team. Let's dive in and see what we consider some of the best deals in the Ultimate Game Add-on Sale...
Heidi — Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Season Pass
Get access to new content, explore new lands, and discover new gear with the Assassin's Creed® Valhalla Season Pass.
Includes two epic expansions! Explore the dark mysteries of ninth-century Ireland, then relive the brutal Viking
siege of Paris. Plus, uncover the monstrous truth behind the legend of Beowulf in an exclusive quest.
Heidi (again) — The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine
Welcome to the land of knights, noble ladies and magnificent wineries. When this kingdom is torn apart by a series of savage massacres, Geralt of Rivia takes on his last great contract. Blood and Wine offers over 20 hours of adventure, in which beauty clashes with horror, and love dances with deceit
The Blood and Wine Expansion is part of the Season Pass.
If you own the Season Pass, you should not purchase the Blood and Wine Expansion, as you already are entitled to it.
Kes — The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Expansion Pass
The characters and environments sing, as does the dialogue and chemistry between literally everyone. Olgierd von Everec is maybe one of my favourite villains in the Witcher franchise, Gaunter O’Dimm is a ploughin’ son of a gnome, and doctor and row-boat accomplice Shani reminds me a little bit too much of my girlfriend, making me question how I’m subconsciously forming my real-life relationships. It truly feels like Geralt is off on a side-quest entirely by accident, something games often tell you is happening but rarely make you feel. This happens to Geralt a few times in Sapowski’s books and is a huge part of what makes his adventures feel unique. It’s like a messed-up holiday, really. When you return to the main quests of Wild Hunt, you feel refreshed and ready for more. With additional horse races and Gwent cards to collect, this is just an all-round must-play part of the game. Be careful with the Wild Rose Dethorned achievement, though. It can glitch, so just keep a save point before you attack that brand of enemy camp. I feel like I’ve given enough praise to the expansion: now, can you put your well-kept hand down? Thanks.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Expansion Pass secures your access to two epic adventures set in the vibrant world of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia. Collectively offering 30 hours of new content, gear and foes--all crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality--the expansions feature characters both new and dearly missed while bringing to life stories previously untold within the Witcher universe.
Sean — Oblivion: Shivering Isles & Knights of the Nine (don’t buy the Horse Armor Pack, obviously)
However, if you really want to impress the denizens of the Shivering Isles and the Knights of the Nine, you’re really going to need to purchase that Horse Armor Pack. You won’t regret it like I did, promise!
Play the official expansion for Oblivion – the 2006 RPG and Game of the Year. Shivering Isles features more than 30 hours of new gameplay as you are sent to explore the realm of Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness. Shivering Isles adds to the existing world of Oblivion, so you can continue playing with your existing save game/character, or create an all-new character just to explore the new content in Shivering Isles. New quests, creatures, weapons, armor, ingredients, and more await in …
A fallen King has been unchained from the darkness of Oblivion to seek vengeance upon the Gods who banished him. Only a champion pure of heart can vanquish the evil that has been released upon the land. You must heed the call, reclaim the lost relics of the Divine Crusader, and return the Nine to glory. New dungeons, characters, quests, and mysteries await. There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see www.xbox.com/live/accounts.
Tom — The Elder Scrolls Online Collection: Blackwood
The Elder Scrolls Online Collection: Blackwood comes packed with each of the game’s major expansions and offers storylines for places such as Western Skyrim, Summerset, and of course Blackwood. It’s a massive amount of content and the achievement list isn’t for anyone but the most committed Elder Scrolls Online players, but as I said, this is for those that have already experienced the game and want to dive into everything Tamriel has to offer... well, up until now, at least.
The Elder Scrolls Online Collection: Blackwood is the ultimate Elder Scrolls experience and includes the base game and all previous Chapters.
Optimized for the Xbox Series X|S with Console Enhanced, bringing a new level of fidelity and performance—free for all ESO players.
