Every week a handful of games release on Xbox One and many elude owners of the console due to their timid marketing. Xbox Wire makes sure you know about them but can’t provide gamers with recommendations. A lot of these titles are absolutely phenomenal and it’s a shame that they aren’t noticed. Here are some games coming out between July 17 and July 21 which you should check out. Some of the experiences are quite obvious while others may surprise you.
What Remains of Edith Finch
What Remains of Edith Finch is a PlayStation 4 sensation and it’s finally coming to Xbox One. Sony seemed to have touted this as a true exclusive but it wasn’t. As Edith, you’ll explore the colossal Finch house searching for stories as she explores her family history and tries to figure out why she’s the last one in her family left alive. Each story you find lets you experience the life of a new family member on the day of their death, with stories ranging from the distant past to the present day.
Welcome to Epic Games new action-building game, Fortnite. Explore the large, destructible world where no games are ever the same. Build huge forts, craft exotic weapons, find loot and level up your heroes to take on the Storm with 4-player online play. You can only play this game early if you preordered the title.
Moon Hunters is a co-op adventure with up to 4 players that will place you in a rich, ancient world that changes each time you play it. Multiple playthroughs of this short story will let you see it from different angles and uncover new sides to characters, conflicts and narratives. Play as each character class, each with their own abilities and randomly generated upgrades as you build your mythology. This title reminds us of Below and Jothun: Valhalla Edition.
Apart from the games mentioned above, Xbox One is getting the Snake-like Conga Master and free-to-play Gigantic (coming out of beta). There might be other surprise releases in there too like the recent ACA NeoGeo World Heroes 2. This week might not be as eventful as the last few put together, but it still includes some fun titles. All of these are great experiences Xbox One owners should try out.
