A handful of games release on Xbox One every week, ranging from AAA titles to lesser-known indie games. Xbox Wire compiles many of these releases, but misses a few and does not give any recommendations.

It’s another busy week for ID@Xbox games as several are releasing, though you won’t see any AAA titles on the list this time.
City of Brass was announced early last August from Uppercut Games, a studio made up of BioShock veterans.

VR and non-VR players will be able to play co-op together.
