Take a look at the upcoming crop of brand new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.
Killer Queen Black is our pick from next week’s lineup of new Xbox digital game store releases. The game looks simple enough in screenshots, but in action, it’s a thrilling multiplayer platformer that rewards fast reflexes and strategic planning. Killer Queen Black‘s appeal comes from its finely balanced systems and the constant tug of risk and reward. With the game joining Xbox Game Pass, a healthy player-base is pretty much guaranteed.
If you want something less frantic, Aery – A Journey Beyond Time looks promising. As a flying, god-like creature, players can explore 12 vast and varied landscapes. It’s a combat-free, narrative-focused adventure and one likely to appeal to fans of Journey, Abzû, and Lost Ember.
Other new Xbox releases include the remastered edition of Beyond Enemy Lines, Heavy Metal Machines, and Akuto: Showdown.
As always, this release lineup is likely to change throughout next week. We’ll update this page with any late additions.
