Dark Light

The upcoming lineup of Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases features a battle between two footballing giants.

First on the field is FIFA 22, the latest entry in EA Sports’ long-running football franchise. Improvements are promised on the pitch – HyperMotion technology is this year’s buzzword – and you can expect a reliably energetic simulation of the sport. A cheeky next-gen upgrade, the loss of some Italian teams, and the ever attendant FUT niggles take the shine off the game.

So maybe eFootball 2022 is a better option? PES was often considered the franchise of choice for football purists, but with that name consigned to history, Konami’s take on the sport is now fully transformed into a free-to-play extravaganza. eFootball’s microtransaction add-ons and multiple in-game currencies make my hamstrings twinge, but if the gameplay is up to scratch, it could be worth a trial.

Other new releases include time loop strategy shooter Lemnis Gate and the delayed dispatch of Toy Soldiers, the HD update of the 2010 XBLA classic.

Here’s the complete list of new Xbox releases. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any late additions.
