Here’s the full lineup of Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One video games released between November 30 and December 4, 2020.
After a quiet week, normal service resumes on Xbox consoles with a glut of new games and next-gen upgrades.
The big new release is Immortals Fenyx Rising from Ubisoft. The game liberally borrows the design and aesthetics of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and blends it with elements of modern Assassin’s Creed. The result is certainly beautiful, and the game does look fun, if uninspired. It will be interesting to see if it spawns yet another open-world franchise for the publishing giant.
Another game we’re intrigued to play is Twin Mirror, the new story-led adventure from Dontnod Entertainment. The game’s big idea is that events take place in the real world and within the ‘mind palace’ of protagonist Sam Higgs. I played an early build two years ago and wasn’t impressed. Hopefully, the final product will meet the studio’s usually high standards.
Other new Xbox releases include Empire of Sin, the Prohibition-era strategy game from Brenda and John Romero, and Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition. I played Yuji Hori’s epic RPG on Nintendo Switch earlier this year and was smitten with its characters, story and combat. The Definitive Edition’s new content enhances an already excellent game.
Finally, Xbox Series X|S upgrades also drop for FIFA 21, Madden NFL 21, and Rainbow Six Siege.
Every release on this list is available from the Xbox digital games store and playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any late additions.
