Untitled Goose Game and new Borderlands 3 DLC headline next week’s Xbox One video game releases.
Let’s take a gander at the new games coming to Xbox One next week. Untitled Goose Game is, without doubt, the highlight. House’s avian mischief game doesn’t quite live up to the hype, but it’s certainly charming, humourous, and playful. It’s also a welcome respite from the real world, that’s for sure.
Further feathered exploits can be found in Aery: Little Bird Adventure from EpiXR Games. Rather than being a honking menace to society, Aery‘s bird avatar takes players on a peaceful, contemplative journey across a minimalist but beautiful world.
Also coming to Xbox One next week is new DLC for EA’s The Sims 4 and Gearbox looter-shooter, Borderlands 3.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the full lineup.
