Here’s the full lineup of video games released for the Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One between December 28-31, 2020.
At first glance, this week’s lineup of new Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S releases looks a little quiet.
Scratch beneath the surface, however, and you’ll find some real gems – and surprising value – in this week’s new Xbox releases.
Bundles are the thing, you see. There’s the Sword & Sorcery Bundle, from Digerati, which features five RPGs for the cost of one. The real winner is the Digerati Presents: RPG Bundle Vol. 1, though, which features Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition from the reliably excellent Failbetter Games.
Sunless Sea is also included in the Digerati Bestsellers Bundle, alongside the why-did-nobody-think-of-this-before brilliant Snakey Bus, a game that mixes Nokia’s classic Snake with Crazy Taxi-like driving action. There’s also a horror bundle rounding out the Digerati offerings this week.
The only non-Digerati bundle games this week are Noble Armada: Lost Worlds, a strategy game set in the Fading Suns universe, and the Asteroids-like Back to Belt.
We’ll keep this post updated throughout the week with any late additions, though that seems unlikely between Christmas and New Year.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
