Here’s your round-up of games coming to the Xbox One between 14th – 18th November, 2016.

There’s a slightly busier week ahead on the Xbox One with some blockbuster titles coming from Ubisoft and a smattering of interesting indie releases to savour.

The big games of the week are the one-two punch of open-world goodness from Ubisoft. Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection is an polished compilation of three of the best titles in the series; Assassin’s Creed 2Brotherhood and Revelations. Hopefully Watch Dogs 2 – also released on Tuesday – follows the pattern of that franchise and improves on the dour first game of its own series. A few concerns aside, we’re hopeful.


On the indie front there are a couple of titles that stand out. First up is Wheels of Aurelia, a slight but utterly captivating narrative racing game set in the Italian ’70s. It’s joined by Mekazoo, a beautiful 2D platformer set in a vibrant 3D world. It has echoes of the recent Donkey Kong Country games from Retro Studios, which is no bad thing at all.

Here’s the full line-up of the week’s Xbox One 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.
