Maneater and Saints Row: The Third Remastered headline this week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases.
Maneater, the comic sharkPG from Tripwire Interactive, is our Xbox One pick of the week. The game promises a fully-fledged action RPG experience with a huge world to explore, a day/night cycle, loot, character upgrades, and a range of enemies to battle. Oh, you also play as a giant shark out for revenge. If that conceit doesn’t wear thin, Maneater has all the makings of a breakout hit.
Also coming to Xbox One is Saints Row: The Third Remastered. THQ has given Volition’s 2011 original a glossy makeover and bundled in all three post-launch mission packs and 30 pieces of DLC. We enjoyed last year’s Nintendo Switch port well enough. Expect the same, but shinier.
Our final pick is A Fold Apart from Lightning Rod Games. It’s an affecting tale of long-distance romance and relationships told using a tactile paper aesthetic.
Other new Xbox One games include Golf with Your Friends, Monstrum, and Bullet Beat.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the confirmed new release lineup.
