State of Decay 2 and Divinity: Original Sin 2 lead the new releases coming to the Xbox One Digital Games Store between May 14-18, 2018.
This week’s Xbox One lineup is low on quantity, but high on quality.
Our first pick is State of Decay 2: Ultimate Edition. The zombie survival sequel from Undead Labs includes four days of early access, two content packs, plus a free copy of the first game’s Year One Survival Edition.
Also coming to Xbox One – as a timed console exclusive in Game Preview – is the award-winning Divinity: Original Sin 2 from Larian Studios. The PC edition of the game has received plaudits from all quarters, and is already acclaimed as one of the greatest RPGs of all-time.
Also worth a look is RageSquid’s downhill mountain biking game, Descenders. You can read our review, here.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
