Check out our list of Xbox One games we’re most excited about:
Need for Speed – November 3rd
Need for Speed is a racing classic. The newest venue? Ventura Bay, “a sprawling urban playground.” The racing franchise introduces five different ways to play: Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw. Master them all and race around the city from dusk ’til dawn. Just don’t get caught by the cops.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III – November 6th
Has it really been three years since the last Black Ops came out? It has indeed, and we’re ready for the next round. Activision was mired in a bit of controversy back in September for their fake terrorist attack news/marketing ploy that teased the game’s campaign mode. They’ve since apologized and we’ve moved on. Apparently the move didn’t piss off too many people, because it’s still ranked as the most anticipated game of the season. Plus, MORE ZOMBIES!
Alekhine’s Gun – November 10th
Believe it or not, this isn’t a game about chess. This brand new espionage adventure throws you into the middle of the Cold War as a former KGB colonel turned CIA spy. Agent Alekhine navigates the Eastern Bloc conflict with the intention to “Unravel the conspiracy. Uncover the truth. Save the world.” Is anyone else getting a GoldenEye 007 vibe?
Rise of the Tomb Raider – November 10th
November 10th is a big day for the Xbox One. The biggest competition for Fallout 4 is undoubtedly Microsoft’s Tomb Raider reboot, but Microsoft doesn’t seem too concerned about launching at the same time. They’re not “direct competitors, per se” according to the company’s Aaron Greenberg. The games appeal to different audiences. However, we’re pretty excited about the new Tomb Raider. The environment is going to be pretty harsh. It also reportedly features a crafting system that allows players to create items by scavenging materials from plants and animals.
Fallout 4 – November 10th
The futuristic post-apocalyptic RPG’s control manual leaked a few days ago, but Bethesda is still not going to release a game demo. Gameplay is reportedly not that much different from Fallout 3, but for the first time, the Sole Survivor can have full dynamic conversations. Fallout is known for giving players absolute freedom, and we’re excited to run around a demolished version of Boston.
Star Wars Battlefront – November 17th
Star Wars is certainly having a year. For the first time in Battlefront history, the game focuses on the 501st legion rather than the Clone Wars. EA confirmed that Hoth, Tatooine, Endor, and Sullust are all featured, with DLC coming out in December including additional planets. This reboot won’t include a strict campaign mode, but will come with two-player co-op missions available both on and offline. We also get to see LADY STORMTROOPERS on the Xbox One. You’ve got to admit, that’s pretty rad.
Deadpool – November 17th
The world needs more Deadpool. With the film coming out next year, the lovely people at Activision are re-releasing the game for Xbox One and PS4. Reviews were mixed when it came to the OG Deadpool game. It was praised for his standard fourth wall breaking but criticized for its repetitive gameplay. All previously released content will be included as a part of the new release. It’ll be interesting to see if they’ve made any major changes, although we bet bet there won’t be many.
Game of Thrones: Episode Six – The Ice Dragon – November 17th
The epic conclusion of the Telltale game series, The Ice Dragon, is available to download the same day the full season hits shelves. In addition, the first episode is already FREE to download on consoles and mobile devices to give people a chance to try out the game. It’s a really awesome concept, since you get to become involved with all the fun in Westeros. Every decision you make has a repercussion, “instead of yelling at your TV” as the show’s Daenerys Targaryen aka Emilia Clarke says.
