Microsoft has launched its "Deals Unlocked" sale on video games and gaming hardware ahead of its E3 2021 showcase this Sunday. The discounts span over 500 digital games across the Microsoft Store for Xbox consoles and PC, promising up to 75% savings throughout the period. Xbox and PC accessories also see reductions, including headsets, storage, and other peripherals.

Deals Unlocked offers savings on the Microsoft Store, coupled with select retail partners including GameStop, Best Buy, and Newegg. Current discounts, live as of June 11, continue through June 17.

The sale includes hundreds of games for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles, with up to 55% off digital games and additional reductions of 75% on some Xbox Game Studios titles. The promotion encompasses digital versions of recent hits, including Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, MLB The Show 21, Watch Dogs: Legion, and It Takes Two. Microsoft in-house exclusives, including Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Forza Horizon 4, also headline the offerings. PC games, available through the Microsoft Store for Windows 10, also see up to 60% discounts.

The sale also pushes an ongoing introductory Xbox Game Pass subscription, offering those new to the service three months for $1. The offer applies to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the company's all-inclusive Xbox subscription, which bundles Xbox Live Gold for online multiplayer access, plus Xbox Game Pass for Xbox and PC. The subscription includes Xbox cloud gaming, EA Play, and exclusive perks like Spotify Premium and Disney+ trials.

Xbox Game Pass currently includes hundreds of playable titles on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles, Windows 10 PCs, and mobile via cloud streaming. The best Xbox Game Pass games include many from various partners, alongside all Microsoft-made titles like Halo, Gears of War, Forza, and more.

But Deals Unlocked also brings various hardware savings, with worthwhile discounts to watch ahead of major upcoming sales like Amazon Prime Day.
