Take a look at this week’s lineup of new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.

It won’t take very long as it’s a slow week for new video games across all platforms.

This week’s highlights – such as they are – include the high-speed 2D action game Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 and the narrative survival adventure South of the Circle.


Of most interest to Xbox fans is the new season of content for Sea of Thieves. The new season adds a host of customisation options, including the long-requested ability to own and name your ship.

We’ll update this page with any late additions throughout the week.

We hate 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. But it's difficult to make ends meet in online publishing at the moment, so if you'd like to help us continue our work, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
