When it launched 2019, NFS Heat, was considered one of the best games in the series in years thanks to its deep customisation, intense cop chases, and risk vs reward gameplay.

Making the deal even sweeter, the Deluxe Edition also includes extra cars, character outfits, and increased Rep and Bank rewards. With 80 percent off, NFS Heat is worth taking for a spin while we wait for Criterion Games’ sequel to arrive.

Forza Horizon 4 – 67 percent off

While Forza Horizon 5 is not on sale, you can save 67 percent off its predecessor, Forza Horizon 4. This reduces the price from £54.99 to £18.14. For that price, you’re getting a lot of content, with hundreds of cars and an expansive open-world set in beautiful, historic Britain.
