Xbox sales this week are little light on offerings thanks to the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, but that doesn't mean that the TrueAchievements news team hasn't found some offerings from the Xbox and PC discounts available.No matter how slim the Xbox sale pickings, which is expected after a sale as large as the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, we here at TrueAchievements always find something to offer you from the selection of Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC game and DLC rocking some nice discounts. Well, not all of us, as Sean has had to miss this week as he is covered in soap and powerwashing himself into oblivion... seriously, we're not sure if he'll ever be the same again. We do have the return of Heidi, though, who has managed to compose herself after last week's disappointing Bear & Breakfast news that caused her to be a little frightening to any who dared approach her.
So, with three of us here to guide you on this week's journey, we invite you to the vast openness of space to sing our hearts out — thankfully there aren't too many people to hear our out-of-tune rendition of Take That's Back for Good in space. In fact, our awful vocal performance could be a great deterrent for any naughty aliens hoping to nip at our ankles, and our co-pilot can always wear earplugs because we'll never be quieted. Never!
Bargains from the latest Xbox sales
Heidi — Wandersong
A musical adventure where you use singing to save the world! Play as a silly bard who embarks on a globe-trotting journey to learn about the mysterious Earthsong, said to prevent the universe’s imminent end. It's up to you to sing your songs, unlock the world's secrets and make new friends!
Luke — Everspace
EVERSPACE™ combines fast-paced combat with roguelike elements, great visuals and a captivating story. It takes you on a challenging journey through an ever-changing, beautifully crafted universe full of surprises. Shoot, craft and loot your way to victory while the odds are stacked against you.
Encounters is the first major expansion for EVERSPACE™, enriching the game world with new story characters and questlines, a brand-new player ship, freighter-loads of novel equipment, additional enemies, and much more.
A NEW RIDE
Impress your peers with the new Colonial Sentinel, a medium fighter craft, and make use of its powerful shield and advanced electronic warfare capabilities. Mileage may vary.
Meet new story characters, each with their own motivations and agendas. Ever met a robot bounty hunter with a French accent who would rather create than destroy? Of course not. Or an alien scientist who sends you on a hunt for space creatures? That's right. Creatures... In space.
New primary and secondary weapons, such as Lightning Guns and Plasma Throwers, will ensure continued enjoyment when dispatching your opponents. Ever wanted to barrage multiple foes at once with projectiles? The Seeker Missile Battery aims to please. You deserve this.
TOOLS OF THE TRADE
EMP Generators? Decoy Holograms? Why, yes! Tons of new devices and consumables will make surviving Cluster 34... as hard as before. But even more fun.
THE FINAL TOUCH
If you're not too busy dying, the new G&B factory stations are well worth a visit. Here you can upgrade your ship, refine resources and delay your inevitable fate by means of repairs.
WAIT? THERE'S MORE?
If a simple paint job didn't do it for you, why not fly in style with a set of fashionable ship skins? And if your journey isn't challenging enough already, we've got you covered with even more achievements. Happy hunting, pilots. Try not to die.
Tom — Aliens Fireteam Elite
Gunplay in Aliens Fireteam Elite is smooth, the missions are enjoyable — although very consistent with the genre's usual objectives — and dive into the franchise's rich lore, which is a bonus for those of us that enjoy that kind of thing. There are also various classes to choose from and to customise to your liking, each offering differing abilities which lend to the game's teamplay focus. It really is a lot of fun, and with its current 50% discount, a great pickup. It's currently in Xbox Game Pass, but for how long is anyone's guess, so now might be a great time to make the purchase! Be warned, the Aliens: Fireteam Elite achievements are pretty grindy, but Cold Iron Studios is constantly updating it with new content to keep you busy. Season 4 has just started and next month we'll get the first DLC drop: Pathogen.
Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a cooperative third-person survival game set in the iconic Alien Universe. Battle through hordes of different types of Xenomorph, customize your character and gear, and level-up as you try to contain this ever-growing threat.
Is anything here making you want to sing from the rooftops, or is something else playing to the tune of your heart? Let us know down in the comments, spacefaring bards!
