Jelly Deals: There's a Deep Silver publisher sale on Xbox Live

Up to 75% off Homefront, Saints Row, Metro Redux and more.

A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

Deep Silver, known to most as the publisher of an array of boundary-pushing games - Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro 2033, among others - is joining forces with Microsoft for the next six-and-a-bit days to bring Xbox One owners the chance to pick up some of the company's most recent titles with up to 75% off.

This sale is live on the UK and US stores, although it should also work in most international territories (your mileage may vary with currency exchange rates) - and in a rather nice move that breaks from the norm, you don't have to be an Xbox Live Gold member to take advantage of the savings. This means that, for the next few days, Xbox One owners can grab a range of high-profile titles for some of their cheapest prices ever.

The Xbox One remastered edition of the Metro series is included in the sale, alongside the prettied up version of Saints Row 4 and its expansion. If you can't decide between them, Deep Silver has bundled those up for an extra discount. Isn't that nice.

Also on offer here is last year's politically charged open-world shooter Homefront: The Revolution which, if you're like me, you may have missed on launch. Here are a few highlights from the sale you might be interested in:

If any of you feel morbid curiosity about the ill-fated platform shooter from the creator of Mega Man, you can go ahead and grab a copy of Mighty No. 9 for £6.40 / $8 as well.

It's also worth noting that, as we reported earlier today over at Jelly Deals, you can currently pick up the absolutely bizarre but wonderful Catherine for £2.24 via Xbox Live. You'll be buying a digital Xbox 360 version but it's fully backwards compatible and will work on an Xbox One.

Oh, and as a final note, for a seemingly unrelated reason, Capcom has reduced the price of DmC: Devil May Cry for the next few days as well. It's not a Deep Silver joint but it is a hell of an experience anyway.
