Are you looking for something new to play? Here’s our roundup of next week’s new Xbox One releases.
There’s a busy enough week ahead on the Xbox One, without there being any major new releases. We’re probably most intrigued to play Skully, the new skull-rolling adventure game from Finish Line Games. At first glance, it looks like a mix of Marble Madness, Metroid, and Donkey Kong Country, which is no bad thing at all.
Fast and Furious Crossroads also hits Xbox One next week. The game is developed by Slightly Mad Studios – best known for the excellent Project Cars series – and promises a blend of high-octane racing, combat, and gadgetry. The tone is appropriately ridiculous, and we have to confess that we’re slightly excited by the prospect of chasing a space rocket, all guns blazing, along a runway.
Other new releases include Wizards: Wand of Epicosity, Swimsanity!, and The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare.
Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and the Microsoft web store. We’ll update this list throughout the week with any late additions.
