Here’s the full rundown on the new releases coming to the Xbox One Games Store between 16–20 April, 2018.

Well, how do we put this? It’s not a vintage week for new releases on the Xbox One Digital Games Store. let’s just say that.

While PlayStation 4 owners are embarking on the latest adventure for Kratos, in the triumphant return of God of War, Xbox owners have a rather more modest selection of games to choose from.


Pick of the week is Bread Team’s action slasher adventure, Phantom Trigger. The game came to PC and Nintendo Switch last year, and won fans with its deep combat system, branching story, and rogue-like dungeons.

Also released this week is I, Hope, a poignant puzzle platforming game from Arconyx. All proceeds from the sale if the game will go the charity, GameChanger.

Elsewhere you can find more rogue-like thrills in sci-fi shooter, Atomic Heist, and futuristic pinball action in Babylon 2055 Pinball.

Here’s the full rundown of next week’s Xbox One digital releases:
