Here’s the full rundown on the new releases coming to the Xbox One Games Store between 9–13 April, 2018.

There are two standout recommendations coming to the Xbox One in the next week, starting with Owlboy from D-Pad Studio.

The game – which is also coming to PlayStation 4 – is a loving tribute to the classic Nintendo games of the 80s and 90s, with a charming cast of characters, and an inventive approach to the Metroidvania formula.


Owlboy would be a certainty for game of the week if it wasn’t for Ninja Theory’s startling action adventure, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The award-winning game has also received a stunning Xbox One X visual upgrade.

Other new games released next week include the tactical monster fighter, Extinction, turn-based RPG, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, and another Metroid-like in the shape of Ys Origin.

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

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.
