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.
