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. Here are some of the games coming out the week of November 13 through November 19 that we think you should check out. Star Wars Battlefront looks to make a triumphant return after its 2015 reboot left much to be desired.
After EA rebooted the series in 2015, fans still didn’t feel like Battlefront was truly back. It lacked depth, a single-player campaign, and just wasn’t a great Star Wars experience. Star Wars Battlefront II aims to rectify that. While its loot crate controversy may still mire its image, Battlefront II aims to have more maps, more playable characters, more eras, and finally a dedicated single-player story campaign. The multiplayer beta already showed just how fun its space battles can be, and the rest looks just as good.
Traveller’s Tales is back with another Lego game, this time Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. The series’ first Marvel installment is currently the best-selling Lego video game of all-time, no doubt thanks to the popularity of Marvel’s cinematic universe on the silver screen. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 features over one hundred of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains available to play. You must team up and stop Kang the Conqueror’s threat against the universe.
L.A. Noire may be an older game, but it’s being remastered for current-gen systems. First released in 2011, L.A. Noire follows an LAPD detective in the 1940s determined to stop the city’s corruption and crime. It uses advanced facial animation technology to help players interrogate NPCs, and this should look even more stunning running on Xbox One. It has also been confirmed that it will receive enhancements for Xbox One X.
The Sims 4 is finally making its way to consoles next week. Its initial release didn’t exactly receive favorable reception due to the omission of several features from previous games and an overall lack of depth. Over the years it has been updated and patched to add a significant amount of features that should have been in it to begin with. You can try all of these out for yourselves when it comes to Xbox One on November 17.
It’s not the first time the original BioShock has released on Xbox One, but this launch is for the serious fans. BioShock: 10th Anniversary Edition is a whopping $199.99 but it comes with all three games in BioShock: The Collection and an 11″ Collectible Big Daddy & Little Sister Statue – Featuring Lights, Audio, and a Motorized Drill. Digital game downloads may becoming more popular, but plenty of people still love physical copies and collector’s editions.
In addition to these games, Road Rage, Ben 10, De Blob, Ashes Cricket, Your Toy, Akuatica: Turtle Racing, Warframe: Plains of Eidolon, Cities: Skylines – Snowfall, and Trove: Adventures are also releasing next week. A ton of games are coming out, but none bigger than Star Wars Battlefront II which seems to mark the end of this fall’s major holiday releases. If any of these interest you, be sure to pick them up.
