Aliens: Fireteam Elite, King’s Bounty II, and Psychonauts 2 top a good week for new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.

A busy week on the Xbox digital games store sees the release of several promising titles.

The headliner is Aliens: Fireteam Elite from Cold Iron Studio. We don’t expect the game to live up to the expertly crafted chills of Alien: Isolation, but we hope it delivers the Xenomorph-blasting action experience the IP deserves. More than 11 Xenomorph types are included, along with various Weyland-Yutani Synthetics ready and willing to soak up bullets. We’ll have a review for you soon.

Elsewhere, Raz and friends return in the long-awaited Psychonauts 2. Fans of the series should be well served with another comic and inventive action-adventure from the always reliable Double Fine Productions.

An even longer-awaited new Xbox release is Kings Bounty II. The turn-based tactical RPG from 1C Entertainment is a direct sequel to the 1990 original and features modern combat mechanics and new exploration features.
