Here’s a full rundown of the new video games coming to Xbox One this week.
Unlike the PlayStation 4 owners, Xbox fans don’t have the delights of Spelunky 2 to look forward to this week. Nonetheless, there’s a decent crop of new games to fill the gap.
If you enjoy futuristic racers, be sure to flag down Pacer from R8 Games. It adheres to a tried and trusted formula, but it’s visually swish and very, very fast. You can read Tom’s preview for a closer look.
Following a short delay, Crytek’s Crysis: Remastered also arrives on Xbox One. Much of the discourse surrounds the game’s specs and performance, but it’s the open-ended gameplay opportunities that we remember fondly and look forward to revisiting
Other Xbox One highlights include Triple Topping’s quirky biographical adventure game Welcome to Elk, a port of the surprisingly fun Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle, and, erm, WWE 2K Battlegrounds.
Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store or the Microsoft web store. We’ll update this post throughout the week if we get news of any late additions.
