Here’s the line-up of games coming to the Xbox One between 9th – 13th January, 2017.
It’s another fairly quiet week for new games on the Xbox One with only seven titles slated for release.
The week’s most promising game is Pit People, which comes from The Behemoth, creators of the Xbox Live hits Castle Crashers and Battleblock Theatre. The game – which is initially being released via Game Preview – is an apocalyptic, co-op adventure featuring vampires, robots and, erm, cupcake people. It also features online multiplayer for up to four players.
Based on The Behemoth’s track record this could be something of a gem. The game certainly retains the studio’s trademark hand-drawn aesthetics and off-beat sense of humour.
Other games coming to the Xbox One this week include psychological horror game, Sylvio, top-down multiplayer shooter, Friday Night Bullet Arena, and the Plant’s vs. Zombies inspired, Acorn Assault: Rodent Revolution.
Here’s the full release line-up:

Wednesday 11 January, 2017
- Acorn Assault: Rodent Revolution
Friday 13 January, 2017
- Pit People (Game Preview)
