If you’re a Call of Duty fan with an Xbox, it’s a pretty good time to drop into a game or two. Why? Well, all the classic Call of Duty games have been revived on Xbox Live servers and you can jump into multiplayer games on some of the best competitive FPS games we’ve seen in the past right now. We know this is suspicious timing considering Microsoft’s victory over the FTC in the court case on its acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but that’s another story. What we’re here to tell you is that Microsoft is celebrating this epic comeback with a huge Xbox Call of Duty sale – which means you can pick up some of the best classic COD games on a discount right now.

Yep, you’re reading that right and there’s nothing we really need to say to add to that. Some of the best Call of Duty games ever – which you could argue are some of the best games of all time, period – are on sale. Not only that, but you can actually jump into a match or two of Team Deathmatch. We know we’re all eagerly awaiting the Modern Warfare 3 release date, but there’s a lot of good gameplay – and nostalgia – to be had in the meantime. But, you don’t have long to save upwards of 50% on that nostalgia.

So, you can buy Call of Duty Black Ops for just $14.99 right now – that’s 50%. This iconic game sees the introduction of Woods and Mason with a mind-bending narrative where World At War’s Viktor Reznov plays a key role. Oh, and the multiplayer is one of the best we’ve ever seen. What’s not to love about that?

If you’re in the UK, you can pick up Black Ops for just £12.49 – which is also 50% off.

If you want something a little more modern, you can also buy Call of Duty Black Ops 2 for just $14.99 at the moment – that’s actually 70% off the standard price. This game follows on from Black Ops, while also including gameplay segments from 2025 – from the perspective of Mason’s son. With multiple endings, and (of course) some banging multiplayer gameplay and zombies, it’s well worth picking up.

Of course, those of you in the UK can pick up Black Ops 2 for just £11.99 – an absolute steal.

You’ll also be pleased to know that the opportunity to settle some beef the old fashioned way is back. That’s right, you can buy Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 for just $9.99 – another 50% saving. This game’s campaign and multiplayer experience really is some of the best we’ve ever seen – and the map design is stellar. Now, there’s not a lot stopping you from enjoying it again.

Interestingly, this one’s actually a little more in the UK. You’ll need to shell out £12.49 if you want Modern Warfare 2. It’s still 50% off, though, so don’t worry about that.

If you’re looking for something a little bit different, here’s a selection of some of the other deals available right now. We also want to highlight that the Modern Warfare listed below is the original 2007 release – not the remaster. You can still get the remaster (and that’s also on sale), but the original is back – and we can’t believe it.

You only have until July 31 to pick up all of these discounts, so make sure you’re taking advantage of them while you can. There’s no telling how long the servers will be up for, though. However, we would like to think they’ll be around for quite some time – all you need to do is look at the player counts to see how popular they are, even now.

This doesn’t take away from the fact that some of the best Xbox FPS games are well worth your time – or that there are some truly exciting upcoming Xbox games in the pipeline. It’s just a fantastic addition to the service and a chance to keep those old classics alive for just a little bit longer.
