Rad and Life is Strange 2: Episode 4 headline the list of new games coming to the Xbox One digital store between August 19-23, 2019.
If you’re not left cold by the prospect of playing another rogue-like, or another game with a neon 80s aesthetic, or another game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, you’re in luck. Double Fine’s Rad hits the Xbox One this week, promising a new spin on a well-worn genre with gameplay based on varied combat mechanics and some crazy mutations.
Also coming to Xbox One is Bromio’s off-the-wall duck boxing game, Pato Box, and multiplayer athletics jamboree, Smoots Summer Games. The strange tale of Sean and Daniel Diaz also continues with the fourth episode of Dontnod’s graphic adventure game, Life is Strange 2. If you need to catch up, Episode 3 is now available on Xbox Game Pass.
All of next week’s new releases can be purchased from the Xbox digital store or Microsoft online store. Here’s the full lineup.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
