This week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases features snowboarding, slayings, slams, and brunch.
A glut of new games come to Xbox One this week, headlined by the full release of Ubisoft’s new battle-royale shooter, Hyper Scape. It looks rather lovely, but the hype escapes us on this one, unfortunately.
Instead, you’ll find us on the slopes enjoying the delights of The Alto Collection, a compilation that includes the sublime duo of snowboarding games, Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey. To be frank, it’s all downhill from here.
Other new releases include EA Sports UFC 4. EA says the introduction of “Real Play Motion” technology overhauls the experience from the clinch to the takedown. It’s one for fans of furious, but friendly, fumbling.
Meanwhile, residents of Harran can take a trip to a dark and dangerous stronghold in the long-awaited Dying Light: Hellraid. This new expansion is based on Techland’s long in development fantasy slasher.
Brunch Club, Through the Darkest of Times, and Bite the Bullet are also among this week’s new Xbox One releases.
Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and the Microsoft web store. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any last minute additions.
