Highlights from the Xbox Spring Sale

You probably have enough to play as is with the ol’ Game Pass pile, but…

Microsoft has opened up its Spring Sale, and that means hundreds of deals on Xbox and PC games, as well as hardware discounts. You’ve got until April 21 to look around.

You can comb through every deal yourself with this sprawling Microsoft Store list — make sure to filter by Xbox and PC as needed. I skimmed the sale and jotted down my highlights with an eye toward games that aren’t a part of Xbox Game Pass. That said, for non-subscribers, high-profile releases like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 are featured.

Can you fit anything else into your backlog? It’ll be a tight squeeze.

2022 Xbox Spring Sale picks

If I accomplish anything here, it’s literally just to point out the deal on TimeSplitters 2. You’ll find other backward-compatible games in the Xbox Spring Sale, but this is the one I had to hoist — it’s the kind of local multiplayer FPS mayhem that’s been missing in my life.

Spring is also in the air at the PlayStation Store, and these sales have a lot of overlap. I feel like April has been a much-quieter month for video games after a snowballing Q1 2022 schedule, so now’s the time to breathe a bit. Might as well score some deals.
