Watch Dogs Legion and Ghostrunner are our highlights from next week’s new Xbox One releases.
The long-awaited Watch Dogs Legion is our pick of the new games coming to Xbox One. This dystopian open-world adventure from Ubisoft Toronto has lofty ambitions, with its ‘recruit any NPC’ gameplay hook and an oppressive post-Brexit London setting. If Legion improves on Watch Dogs 2 as much as that game did on the original, this could be something memorable. On a related note, read our feature on how Great Britain has been represented in video games.
More technology-influenced shenanigans are on offer in Ghostrunner, the new cyberpunk action-adventure from One More Level. The game has demoed well and won rave reviews in its Steam preview earlier this year. It’s definitely one to watch.
Other new Xbox One releases include Little Hope, which is the second part of Supermassive’s The Dark Pictures Anthology, and classic graphic adventure Grim Fandango, which is one of three remasters from Double Fine.
Finally, on a personal note, I’ve always had a soft spot for Star Wars Episode 1 Racer, which comes to Xbox One in remastered form following its PS4 and Switch release earlier this year.
Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox digital games store or the Microsoft web store. We’ll keep this post updated throughout the week with any late additions.
