Xbox Ultimate Sale Offers Up to 80% Off Racing Games

Gaming July 22, 2018 by

Xbox has kicked off one of its biggest sales of the year. With savings of up to 80% available, it’s an excellent time to expand your racing game collection.

This being Microsoft, there’s naturally some Forza franchise discounts. Track racers should take a look at Forza Motorsport 7, with every version of Turn 10’s sim racer enjoying a 50% discount. That means you can pick up the Ultimate Edition — which packs in all the DLC so far, including the most recent Top Gear Car Pack — for less than the normal list price of the vanilla version.

Forza Horizon 3 takes that approach to an even more extreme level. The Platinum Edition plus Expansions bundle packs in absolutely everything for the 2016 open-world racer. At regular list price that’d be a faintly ridiculous $156.99 — but the sale sees it down to $39.24. That’s a great price for a massive game. If you want to explore Australia before FH4 whisks players off to the UK, now’s the chance.

Heading back to the sim side of the equation, Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition enjoys a handy discount. As the name suggests, it includes all of the DLC for Kunos’ title — almost two years’ worth. It’s still one of the best driving experiences out there, on consoles or PC.

Project CARS 2 is 60% off, in vanilla and Deluxe flavors. It offers a massive number of tracks (and variable weather/time/seasons), and Deluxe edition owners have one more DLC to look forward to in September…

Codemasters games all see a 75% reduction across the board here. Much like the recent PlayStation flash sale, that means picking up great titles like F1 2017 and DiRT 4 for $15.

If you’d rather an arcade action experience, the sale has titles to scratch that itch. It may be a decade old, but the recent remaster of Burnout Paradise proves the formula still works. The much more recent Need for Speed Payback is also an option — with a larger discount for the Deluxe Edition, no less — and there’s also Gravel if you’d prefer a more off-road slant.

You can find the full list down below. The Xbox Ultimate Sale ends July 30, so don’t wait too long if something catches your eye.
