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 May 1 and May 5 which you should check out. Some of the experiences are quite obvious while others may surprise you.
In Prey, you are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever—but events have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile Typhoon aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station: your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities.
Guide a group of space settlers trying to establish a base on a remote planet. Grow food, collect energy, mine resources, survive disasters and build a self-sufficient colony in a harsh and unforgiving environment. If you’re intrigued by games like Aven Colony, then you should check out Planetbase.
A teleportation-mishap, a broken contract, a mysterious tree and a foolhardy expedition set the stage for our 4 heroes. Follow Lumina, Teri, Knaus and Clonington on a rip-roaring adventure full of twists and turns through the World to the West!
Dreamfall is a popular adventure game series available on Steam. In Dreamfall Chapters, Zoe Castillo’s story comes to a close. Players will revisit familiar characters and locations previously experienced in the franchise. The game was supposed to come out in March 2017 but suffered a last-minute delay until May 5. It also looks like they changed the game’s name a bit.
You wake up in a prison cell after what seems like days, and your beloved friend has gone missing. With a sword in one hand and revenge on your mind, embark on an epic quest to find the demons who captured you and destroy them.
Apart from the games mentioned above, Xbox One is getting Save the Ninja Clan. There might be other surprise releases in there too like last week’s classic ACA NeoGeo Alpha Mission II. This week is definitely more eventful than the last few put together because heavy-hitters like Planetbase and Prey are coming out. All of these are great experiences Xbox One owners should try out.
