Save big on Call of Duty: WWII, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Injustice 2 and more in the Xbox Back to School sale
The games don't have to end just because the holidays do.
For most of us, the new school year comes around far too quickly. Where did the holidays go? How is it already time to start packing school bags and preparing for 12 more months of harrowing homework?
Chronological shenanigans aside, there's one way to make the prospect of trudging back into the classroom slightly less miserable, and that's by stocking up on sweet back-to-school deals. We're not talking exercise books and three-ring binders here, either: there are plenty of sales that have nothing to do with education – at least, not in the traditional sense.
Case in point: Microsoft is currently throwing a back-to-school Xbox One sale with discounts on a bunch of games that probably won't help get your grades up. Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WWII and Assassin's Creed Origins are just some of the titles reduced by as much as 60%, with nearly 100 games in total available on the cheap.
While commercial games are often overlooked in the education conversation, that doesn't mean they can't teach you anything. Assassin's Creed Origins, for example, packs in plenty of historical learnings around Ancient Egypt and the political machinations of the time. Destiny 2 might take place in a fantastical setting, but the teamwork it demands from players is just as relevant in the modern day.
Regardless, there are some solid deals to be had in this sale, and we've rounded up our top picks in the table below. Head on over to Microsoft Store if you want to browse all the deals.
