Here’s the full lowdown on this week’s lineup of brand new Xbox One video game releases. One title is quite literally awesome.
There isn’t a huge amount to be excited about on Xbox One this week, but we promised you an awesome game, so let’s talk about one.
Awesome Pea 2 is the follow-up to Sometimes You’s enjoyable 2018 retro-platformer. The original was a slight, but occasionally tricky game starring a heroic vegetable. The peaquel promises a larger serving of everything, including dungeons, enemies, and loot. The pea-souper visuals also return, beautifully recalling the dingy display of the Nintendo Game Boy.
Other new releases include Strawberry Vinegar, a quirky visual novel about making food to save your soul, and We Were Here Together, a mysterious puzzle adventure set in the wastes of Antarctica.
The latest addition to the Thumbsticks ‘Big Book of Bland Game Names’ is called Cyber Protocol. It’s a fun retro-style puzzler. Finally, the long-awaited Eco Lifestyle expansion comes to The Sims 4.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the full lineup at the time of writing. We’ll keep this page updated throughout the week.
