Mass Effect Legendary Edition tops next week’s lineup of new Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S releases.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition might not be the next-gen remake we secretly hoped for, but we are still looking forward to revisiting BioWare’s excellent sci-fi RPG trilogy. The updated visuals won’t find favour with purists, but retooled gameplay – particularly for the first game – and a wealth of add on content, should make amends.
There more alien environments to explore in Subnautica: Below Zero, the sequel to the 2018 survival adventure from Unknown Worlds. Again, much of the game takes place underwater, but this time, there’s a sizeable landmass to discover and explore. Expect some subtle refinements to the survival mechanics and more substantial narrative elements.
Other new Xbox games include the full release of Hood: Outlaws and Legends and Death Crown, the striking minimalist real-time strategy game from Co5monaut.
Here’s the full lineup of confirmed new Xbox releases. We’ll update this list throughout the week with any late additions.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
