Here’s your round-up of games coming to the Xbox One between 5th – 9th December, 2016.

For the first time in a long time there’s quite a difference between this week’s Xbox One and PlayStation 4 line-ups.

True, the PlayStation 4 has the long-awaited The Last Guardian but the Xbox One has its own exclusive with Dead Rising 4. Capcom’s sequel sees the return of Frank West whose John McClane-like existence sees him return to the town of Willamette at Christmas only to once again encounter hordes of zombies.


Also released this week is Silence, Energy Cycle and Zen Pinball 2: Bethesda Pinball, which includes boards based on Fallout 4, DOOM and The Elder Scrolls series.

And tucked away at the end of the week is a console release for Westerado Double Barreled, the violent and humorous pixel western from Adult Swim Games. It’s not quite Red Dead Redemption 2 but if you like Westerns it does scratch the itch.

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