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. 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 March 27 and March 31 which you should check out. Some of the experiences are quite obvious while others may surprise you.
Snake Pass has to be one of the most unique games coming to Xbox One. Puzzle platformers haven’t seen an evolution for decades and this game manages to change things up. The objective is to slither your way to the top of mount Haven Tor as Noodle the snake. You have to use physics and your bird companion to cross obstacles and collect coins.
Dark Souls III: The Ringed City
Dark Souls III: The Ringed City launches on March 28. In the final expansion pack for the game, you go in search of…you guessed it…the Ringed City. It’s a bizarre region filled with colossal enemies. Remember how in the beginning of Dark Souls III you saw those terrifying dragons? Well, you can battle them in this new area. The expansion also adds numerous unique items and sets of armor.
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard released in Europe and Australia on Friday but the rest of us have to wait until March 28. The game is a proper adventure along the lines of Diablo III and is a lot of fun. You’re a Viking leader who must prevent Ragnarok—the apocalypse. You basically do this by going around and killing giants.
Thimbleweed Park is a classic point-and-click adventure like The Secret of Monkey Island. It’s a murder mystery with many playable characters. The best part about the game has to be the fact that legendary developer Ron Gilbert is its creator. Thimbleweed Park will support Xbox Play Anywhere in the future.
Air Guitar Warrior
Remember Kinect? Well, this is a game that requires the peripheral. Air Guitar Warrior is side-scrolling shooter mixed with a music game. In order to vanquish foes you have to play an air guitar…in other words, pretend to play guitar with nothing in your hands.
Apart from the games mentioned above, Xbox One is getting Anoxemia, Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus, Four Sided Fantasy, Has-Been Heroes, The Inner World, Mafia III: Faster, Baby!, Punch Club, R.B.I. Baseball 17, Skykeepers and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier: Episode 3 this week. There might be other surprise releases in there too. While this week isn’t as eventful as the last, there are still a lot of great games Xbox One owners should try out.
