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:
Xbox One Game Store releases for 1-5 May, 2017
Wednesday 3 May, 2017
Friday 5 May, 2017
- Save the Ninja Clan
- World to the West
- Bit Dungeon

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.
