Kingdoms-of-Amalur-Reckoning
Major Nelson has shared the latest batch of deep discounts available to Xbox Gold subscribers,including the first two Dragon Age games, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, and Rayman Legends, which are available from now through October 20.

Xbox One users are being treated to survival horror Outlast, the classic, turn-based arena fighter Worms Battlegrounds, and the excellent Rayman Legends for discounts ranging from 25-40-percent off. Xbox 360 is getting a decidedly more fantastical selection with Dragon Age Origins, Dragon Age II, and the underrated Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (and all of their associated DLC) available for 50-75-percent off from their usual list prices.
