Details of the games coming to the Xbox One Games Store between February 20 – 24, 2017.
It’s a solid week on the Xbox One Games Store as Halo Wars 2 finally goes on general release. It also looks like most of the week’s other releases have made way for Creative Assembly’s science-fiction RTS, with ten games arriving on Wednesday and Friday.
Highlights include A Pixel Story, Shift Happens and music puzzle game, Chime Sharp. Also worth a look is Forma.8, an expansive Metroidvania adventure with a striking art style from MixedBag.
There’s also a Curve Digital promotion running until March 9, 2017. You can pick up a bundle of ten indie games – including OlliOlli, Thomas Was Alone and The Swapper – for $20.

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.
