    Hmm, speaking of sales, I see TA's price checker page has been changed.

    Oh awesome, there's now a price history section, so we can see how games and such were priced in earlier sales. Seems to be defaulting to the UK and Pounds and not my set region atm though.

    Definitely worth it.

    FH4 DLC also definitely worth it.

    I just noticed that as well. Seems strange to see no mention of it on the website, especially when it now includes a feature a lot of gamers were asking for (price history).

    I've been waiting for a sale on the 360 version of the AC IV season pass, every time I see the XB1 version on sale I check and get disappointed.

    Jurassic World expansion is kind of tempting.

    Got all of the Dead Cells stuff.

    Freedom Cry isn’t just one of the best AC DLCs, it’s easily in the top 10 DLCs ever made for any game.

    I’m on the fence for Forza Horizon 4, I’d like to get the game for when it’s eventually delisted and the DLC, not sure if this is the best way to purchase it…

    Jurassic World I look at every time it’s on sale, but I refuse to buy DLC for a game I haven’t yet started…

    The FH 4 DLC was worth it. I remember putting in decent hours in the lego and island areas

    I just got Escapists 2 DLC after main game was GwG the other week. Only played it for 15 mins but seems fun, just getting used to controls and what you need to do etc.

    Noticed the Wildlands Breakpoint DLC too. Shame the actual game has such bad reviews, Wildlands was really good

    Return to Jurassic Park was the best add-on!

    I was about to pic up the Black Flag season pass, then noticed that I already had Freedom Cry. I guess I bought it at some point. No point in picking up the pass then.
    This space for rent.

    To date, I think it is. I remember having the exact same question in the past and getting Fortune Island and Lego Champions independently was a tad cheaper than the bundle. I haven't seen them go cheaper than 7.5€ each since then, so I'd say it remains true. You never know if it will have a steeper discount in the future, of course, but I'll also say this isn't the first time it has been at this, or similar, price.

    The bundle also includes other dlc's and the car packs, btw. iirc, the vip pack helps slightly in achievements (more credits and xp per race, wheelspins, a house, ...). I think the secrets map is not included, though.

    Quality wise, it's worth it, as others have said. Fortune Island is a cool new map, and gives you a solid 6-10 hours on achievements. Lego Champions is a cool twist, but a bit grindy on achievements.
