Here’s the full list of games coming to the Xbox One Games Store between December 18-22, 2017.
There’s a pretty thin lineup of new games coming to the Xbox One this week, with just four titles released.
The standout is Episode 3 of Deck Nine’s Life is Strange: Before the Storm. So far this series has been an unexpected delight, and in some respect exceeds the much-loved original. Josh Wise, in his review of Episode 1, said:
“For fans, it’s a return journey to one of the most vivid, joyous settings in gaming. For them, and for everyone else, it’s a brave effort which, at times, surpasses the original.”
Also released this week is Boom Ball 3. The third, yes third, game in the Virtual Air Guitar Company’s series of supercharged ping-pong games for Kinect.
If you’re looking for a wider selection of games, head over to this week’s PlayStation Store update.

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.
