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 June 19 and June 23 which you should check out. Some of the experiences are quite obvious while others may surprise you.
Time to lace up your shoes and sharpen your weapons. Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage killer, and the other players play as survivors, trying to escape him and avoid being caught, tortured, and killed—in that order. It’s like Friday the 13th: The Game but, you know, it actually works.
Broken Age, a PlayStation 4 sensation, is the timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. Switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.
When Cole Black awakens in an old abandoned asylum, his sole memory is the attempted rescue of a teenage girl with a bomb strapped to her chest. Everything else is blank. With a strange technology fused to his head, used to read and replay human memory, Black travels into the depths of his own mind to find the truth of his past.
It’s time to make your move! Described as the most breathtaking chess game ever made, Chess Ultra features stunning visuals, seamless online multiplayer, and Chess Grandmaster-approved AI for the ultimate experience.
Dungeon Defenders II
Ever play Dungeon Defenders? Well, now you can get a taste of it on Xbox One. Dungeon Defenders II is the sequel to the action-packed tower defense classic. The game is packed with even more classic role-playing elements like loot, leveling and pets. Play alone or alongside your friends with up to 4 players online. Dungeon Defenders II will be free-to-play when it launches.
Apart from the games mentioned above, Xbox One is getting a Dead Rising 4 expansion pack and a hidden-objects game. 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.
