Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has announced the upcoming Xbox Spring Sale, which will run from April 11 to 17. According to the announcement, which Hryb shared on Twitter, the sale will feature over 350 Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles, and will offer savings up to 67 percent, with Xbox Live Gold members gaining an additional 10 percent off the listed games.
Hryb’s tweet included a video showing off quite a few of the titles that will be feature in the sale, including Overwatch, Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Gears of War 4, and Watch Dogs 2. The full list will be available when the sale goes live.
Interestingly, all but one of the Xbox 360 games shown in the video are available via backward compatibility. The one title in the video that’s missing from the list of backward compatible titles is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, one of the most highly-praised Call of Duty titles. Naturally, the game’s inclusion in the video has led to many gamers speculating that it will be available via backward compatibility soon.

Black Ops 2 has been at the top of Xbox’s vote list for backward compatible games for months now. In fact, shortly after Xbox announced backward compatibility and opened the list for gamers to vote on the titles they wanted most, Black Ops 2 rose to the top and led by a comfortable margin. Hopefully this means the title will finally be available via backward compatibility, despite Phil Spencer claiming a couple months ago that it wouldn’t happen.
Eagle-eyed gamers also noticed that Ryse: Son of Rome was included in the video. This is interesting considering the game is currently available for free through Games With Gold. However, it seems Xbox has cleared up some confusion by saying it will be Ryse’s Season Pass that will be available in the sale.
Also included in the video is the expected $1 Xbox Live Gold one-month membership. As with years past, the $1 Gold membership is only available to those who aren’t currently Xbox Live Gold members.
Xbox gamers can also grab an Xbox Design Lab controller for $15 off the retail price. For those unfamiliar with Xbox Design Lab, it’s a way for Xbox One gamers to customize and design a unique controller, with colors and a personalized message.
