Halo: Reach and Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey headline this week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases.
There’s a top-notch lineup of games coming to the Xbox One this week, starting with Bungie’s classic 2010 FPS, Halo: Reach. The game comes to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection with support for 4K and HDR. It’s priced at $9.99 in the US and £6.99 in the UK.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey also makes its console debut, coming to Xbox One with some welcome new tutorials to help players take their first steps in prehistoric Africa.
Other new releases include Greg Lobanov’s delightful musical adventure, Wandersong, the fifth and final episode of Life is Strange 2, and the enhanced edition of Bioware’s classic role-playing game, Neverwinter Nights.
We’ll also tip our hat to My Friend Pedro, Deadtoast’s tale of blood, bullets and bananas. The game didn’t live up to our (admittedly high) expectations when we reviewed it on Switch, but it’s still recommended.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the full lineup.
