A classic RPG and a promising mash-up RTS and FPS mashup headline next week’s roster of new Xbox One releases.
Next week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases features games from the past, present, and future. From the past, we have The Bard’s Tale ARPG: Remastered and Resnarkled, the updated version of InXile Entertainment’s much-loved 2004 RPG. In addition to enhanced textures and 4K 60fps display, the game supports Xbox Play Anywhere. And, of course, it features the voice talents of Cary Elwes and legendary Tony Jay. (If you prefer playing on a system beginning with P, it’s been out on PS4 and PC for some time.)
Disintegration, meanwhile, is very much one of the games of the moment. This fusion of first-person shooting and real-time strategy is ambitious and flawed, but full of potential. We can see it growing a significant fan base, particularly among multitaskers.
And from the future, via the magic of Xbox Game Preview, we have Session from Crea-ture Studios. This classy skateboarding sim has been declared the spiritual follow-up to the Skate series by its Steam Early Access players. We’re looking forward to grinding while slouched on the couch. A free trial is also available to download now.
Some of the other games coming to Xbox One have a distinct Wild West theme. We expect that the developers of Desperados III, Colt Canyon, and Hard West Ultimate Edition are as pleased as punch with their release timing.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store.
