On November 18, most Microsoft fans will see the image above when they browse the company’s Black Friday deals. On the other hand, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to enjoy the Black Friday offerings 4 days earlier, starting from November 18.

Microsoft will open general access to its Black Friday deals on November 22, with an Early Gold Access from November 18 to November 21. In this manner, the company rewards Xbox Live Gold members’ loyalty by letting them be the first to order consoles, games, and accessories at huge discounts. Let’s hope that Xbox Live Gold members don’t buy all the products put on sale.

Microsoft’s Major Nelson already announced what the main deals will be. Expect to find $50 discounts for the Xbox One S, up to 50% discounts for games and discounts of hundreds of dollars for computers.

You’ll be able to get any new Xbox One S starting at $249 – its lowest price ever. This offer includes savings on all Xbox One S bundles available this holiday season. Moreover, Gears of War 4 can be yours for $25 off bundled with the entire Gears Xbox 360 Collection.

Speaking of consoles and games, there will be more than 250 deals on Xbox One and Xbox 360 digital games. You’ll definitely be clicking the “Add to cart” button a lot when the Black Friday season opens.

Also, Xbox Live Gold members save up to 10% more on most sale titles. If you want to reap the benefits, you’ve still got time to go Gold. You can buy top blockbuster titles from Microsoft Studios and play on both Xbox One and Windows 10. All customers can get the same great discounts for the following three games: Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, and ReCore.

Other games with huge discounts include: Quantum Break, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Batman: The Telltale Series, and Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition.
