Here’s the full lineup of games coming to the Xbox One Games Store between January 1-7, 2018.
Actually, that sentence is a bit of a lie, as there is just one solitary title confirmed for release on the Xbox One this week.
So let’s give props to Dead Drop Studios, who have managed to snag a whole article to themselves with the Xbox One release of Outbreak: The New Nightmare.
If your new year’s resolution is to scrounge for supplies and beat off unrelenting hordes of zombies, it’s the game you’ve been waiting for. Outbreak: The New Nightmare has been available in Early Access on Steam since June, and currently has an 82% positive rating.
Here’s the full rundown of next week’s Xbox One digital releases, plus a few other suggestions:
Xbox One releases: January 1-7, 2018
Monday January 1, 2018
- No releases. Maybe play PUBG?
Tuesday January 2, 2018

Wednesday January 3, 2018
- Outbreak: The New Nightmare
Thursday January 4, 2018
- No releases. Maybe play Forza 7?
Friday January 5, 2018

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.
