Slay the Spire headlines the list of new videogames coming to the Xbox One digital store between August 12-16, 2019.

MegaCrit’s stunning combination of card game and Roguelike mechanics, Slay the Spire, is our pick from next week’s new Xbox One releases. The game has been a massive hit on PC, and the recent PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch ports prove that the game is equally at home on console, and just as addictive. Do play it, but don’t forget to eat and sleep.

Other new releases include turn-based tactical RPG, Tactics V: Obsidian Brigade, and Utopia, the first major console expansion for sci-fi strategy game, Stellaris. Classic Japanese arcade shoot ’em ups, Vasara and Vasara 2, also get an outing, coming to Xbox One in the Vasara Collection double pack.


And if you’ve always wanted to build a PC but want a dry run first, take a look at The Irregular Corporation’s quirky PC Building Simulator. All of next week’s new releases can be purchased from the Xbox digital store or Microsoft online store. Here’s the full lineup.
