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.
