Black Friday 2019: Xbox Previews some of their discounts, highlights Sea of Thieves


Xbox’s Major Nelson has outlined some of their Black Friday offerings with a full-list expected to launch here in just a short couple of weeks, which includes discounts on controllers, recent releases, and some of their heaviest hitters.

If you’re like me, you love to save some money. When it comes to games, we love to save even more money as our favorite past-time keeps going up in price. As of today, Larry Hryb, also known as Major Nelson, gave us a preview of what kind of sales to expect from the company.

Among the first announced is Sea of Thieves: Anniversary Edition, which is their fastest-selling IP of this generation of games. It’s a story-driven adventure title where players work in cooperation with other players as they sail the high seas, aiming to become some of the most notorious pirates the seas have to offer. Now, as this is an online-only title, you will need an active Xbox Live Gold membership in order to play it, but with Tall Tales or The Arena, you really should give it a chance.

Major Nelson has also confirmed that all Xbox Wireless Controllers, including that beautiful new Night Ops Camo Special Edition, Sport Blue Edition, and even the Gears 5 Kait Diaz Limited Edition controllers, among many others will also be apart of the sales for $39.99.

However, he has not offered up any more information outside of stating the players can expect these sales to run from Nov. 24th to Dec. 2nd, 2019. He has also confirmed that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold Members, will get early access starting Nov. 21st through the Microsoft Marketplace and Xbox Store locations.
