Microsoft is hosting a massive Xbox game sale right now, highlighting the scariest titles in its collection as part of its Shocktober discounts. You can save up to 90% on some titles, though the bigger discounts are reserved for older releases. However, we're still seeing some excellent savings on 2021 gems as well. 

Resident Evil Village, The Medium, and Biomutant are all 2021 titles taking some of their first (or biggest) discounts this week. The latest Resident Evil game, for example, is down to $40.19 (opens in new tab) thanks to a record-breaking saving from the original $59.99 MSRP. We haven't seen this title drop below $45 in previous Xbox game sales, and that makes it a perfect pickup for your planned fright nights. 

However, if you're looking to stock up on some previous releases that might be missing from your collection, prices on older titles start at just $1.99 right now. That particular saving sits on Agony, which is currently 90% off its original $19.99 MSRP (opens in new tab). Budget-busters will also find Thief available for $2.99 (opens in new tab), Little Nightmares at $4.99 (was $19.99) (opens in new tab), and a Resident Evil triple pack for $19.63 (was $59.49) (opens in new tab)

You'll find more information on our top picks just below, with all the biggest savings Microsoft's current Xbox game sales further down the page. It's also worth noting that we're expecting more Black Friday Xbox Series X deals to hit over the next few weeks, so there are plenty more discounts on the way if nothing fits the bill right now.
