Top 5 games coming to Xbox One this week

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 22 and May 26 which you should check out. Some of the experiences are quite obvious while others may surprise you.
