This week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases includes a trip to hell, a baseball game, and the Isle of Man.
Doom Eternal is this week’s big new Xbox One release. Besting 2016’s comeback is no easy task, but based on our time with the game so far it’s looking promising. Check back for our review tomorrow. It’s certainly a treat to hear more music from Mick Gordon. The opportunity to revisit Doom 64, which is included as a pre-order freebie, is also welcome.
We’re also cautiously optimistic about R.B.I. Baseball 20. The RBI series has never quite managed a home run, but this year’s effort is shaping up nicely with vastly improved visuals, plus new batting and pitching mechanics.
Other new Xbox One releases include a pair of racing games, Overpass and TT Isle of Man 2, and two La-Mulana platformer adventures. The online beta for Phantasy Star Online 2 also begins on Tuesday.
Every new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store or Microsoft online store. Here’s the confirmed lineup.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
