Looking for some new games to play? Here is the confirmed lineup of next week’s new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.
Unfortunately, there’s not a lot to get excited about on Xbox this week. A glance at the games listed below reads like a lineup of budget ZX Spectrum titles from 1987.
One of those games, however, looks like a lot of fun. Gamechuck’s Speed Limit is a retro-style action game that hops between genres in a blink of an eye. One minute it’s a side-scrolling shoot, the next it’s a top-down racing game. A pounding soundtrack keeps the game moving along nicely and you can try the game right now via its free Steam demo.
Also coming to Xbox is Teamcoil’s psychedelic kitten game Puss!, and the enjoyable 2D platform shooter, Gravity Heroes.
Sadly, Xbox owners looking forward to the long-awaited release of sci-fi racing game Pacer will have to be patient a little longer. Developer R8 has confirmed the game will now be released on March 9.
As always, this release lineup is likely to change. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions.
