Here’s the full lineup of new releases coming to the Xbox One digital games store between February 4-8, 2019.
Salt and Sanctuary is our pick of next week’s new Xbox One releases. Ska Studios’ action RPG was first released for the PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016, before coming to the PS Vita and Nintendo Switch last year. Don’t let the game’s age put you off, it’s an engrossing and often beautiful role-playing adventure.
Also released next week is colourful FPS roguelike, Away: Journey to the Unexpected. The game hails from Aurélien Regard, the developer behind the under-rated racing shoot ‘em up, The Next Penelope. Like that game, Away blends a variety of genres with vibrant, distinctive visuals. We have a feeling this is one to watch.
Other games to hit the Xbox One include Spike Volleyball, Pipe Push Paradise, and 2D stunt game, Pumped BMX Pro.
All of next week’s games can be downloaded from the Xbox digital games store, or purchased via the Microsoft online store. Here’s the full release list.

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.
