Microsoft's subscription based Xbox Game Pass truly came into its own in recent months when first party titles like Sea of Thieves and State of Decay were made available the same time as the retail releases.

With E3 just a few days away, it looks like Xbox wants to invite you into their console family with a huge sale. The long list of discounted games includes: Forza Motorsport 7, Battlefield 1, Monster Hunter World, Assassin's Creed Origins, Destiny 2, Sea of Thieves, Super Lucky's Tale, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, FIFA 18, and National Basketball Association 2K18.

Xbox holds its E3 2018 Media Briefing on June 10 from 1pm PDT.

As for games, they say there will be 75 percent off certain games, including discounts on titles like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Monster Hunter: World, and Sea of Thieves. An official calendar link on the Xbox website shows that the event is planned to last two hours, though that might be wishful thinking - even the Xbox One X reveal event didn't last two hours. In addition to all of that you will be able to save money on an Xbox console as well.
