Here’s the full list of games heading to the Xbox One Games Store between 1-5 May, 2017.
It’s a quiet week on the Xbox Games Store with a mere five titles heading to the Xbox One. Fortunately, one of them is Prey. Arkane Studios’ sci-fi adventure is certainly promising, and if the end product meets the studio’s aim of creating a spiritual sequel to System Shock, then it will be a game well worth playing. If you haven’t already, you can download a free demo right now.
We’ll be honest, the only other title that piques our interest this week is Planetbase. Madruga Works’ colony management simulation was originally released on PC in 2015, and Mac last year. The game has some flaws, but has nonetheless grown a dedicated community of players who appreciate the pleasures of growing crops on a desolate rock. If its mouse and keyboard controls can be effectively mapped to the Xbox One controller, there’s a chance it could build a following on console, too.
Here’s the full lineup:
