If you’re in the market for something new to play, take a look at this list of some of the most entertaining and innovative titles currently available on the Xbox One video game console. This article will help you decide which Xbox One games are worth picking up today, and which ones might be worth your time in the future.
Forza Horizon 4
If you’re looking for the best driving game on Xbox One, Forza Horizon 4 is it. The game features beautiful graphics, a huge open world to explore, and a ton of cars to collect. Plus, the dynamic seasons add an extra layer of challenge and fun. If you’re looking for a great game to sink your teeth into, Forza Horizon 4 is the one. It’s got tons of gameplay modes, including racing with friends in multiplayer or just cruising around the beautiful world as a lone wolf. Plus, you can customize every little detail about your car, right down to its headlights!
If you’re more interested in something more challenging or dark and gritty, there are plenty of other options out there that should suit your taste. Check out PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds if you like multiplayer games with lots of action-packed gunfights or try Life Is Strange 2 if story-driven adventures are more up your alley. You can also get a feel for what VR has to offer by checking out Astro Bot Rescue Mission. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s no shortage of amazing games waiting for you on Xbox One!
Sea of Thieves
If you’re looking for a game that’s all about pirate-themed adventure, then you need to check out Sea of Thieves. You and your friends can set sail on a shared ship, exploring the open world and taking on quests together. There’s also plenty of opportunity for player-versus-player combat if you’re feeling competitive. With its vibrant graphics and fun gameplay, Sea of Thieves is one of the best Xbox One games out there. Plus, it has cross-play with PC and mobile devices. So you’ll be able to play no matter where you are! All this talk about pirates reminds me of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. It was my favorite game back in 2013, so I had to include it in this list. It takes place during the Golden Age of Piracy, following Edward Kenway as he seeks fortune and revenge in the Caribbean seas. He finds success at first as a privateer but soon sets his sights on becoming a true pirate king.
Alongside naval battles, naval exploration and plundering hidden treasures along the way, Black Flag delivers some incredible stealth gameplay too – not forgetting sword fighting either! Not only is Black Flag one of the best Xbox One games around right now, it’s also available on PS4 and other consoles. For those who prefer their pirates in 2D, Capcom recently released a remastered version of their classic arcade title DuckTales: Remastered on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Packed full of nostalgia from the Disney TV show and enhanced with new graphics and voice work from original cast members (with Scrooge McDuck voiced by Alan Young himself), DuckTales: Remastered is well worth picking up if you’ve got an old NES cartridge gathering dust somewhere.
In fact, both the NES original and the remake make appearances in Capcom’s latest release of Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara which includes two games from 1993 (the Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara) with updated HD visuals. As for actual 3D games, I’d recommend Dark Souls III which is known for being unforgivingly difficult yet rewarding. Developer FromSoftware have been creating Souls titles since 2009, each more challenging than the last. The lore might be tough to get into at first, but Dark Souls III provides a satisfying challenge and deep gameplay mechanics that will keep players coming back time after time.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Lara Croft returns in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and this time she’s out for revenge. The game picks up after the events of Rise of the Tomb Raider, with Lara hell-bent on taking down Trinity, the organization that killed her father. The gameplay is intense and thrilling, with plenty of stealthy moments and exciting set pieces. The story is emotional and satisfying, making Shadow of the Tomb Raider one of the best games in the series.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
If you’re looking for an expansive and engrossing RPG to sink your teeth into, look no further than Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The game takes you to the beautiful and war-torn world of ancient Greece, where you’ll get to choose your own path and write your own Odyssey. With a huge open world to explore, tons of side quests to undertake, and a compelling story, Odyssey is one of the best games on Xbox One.
If you’re a fan of sports games, then FIFA 19 is a must-play. The latest entry in the long-running series brings with it new features and modes, as well as the same level of polish and attention to detail that fans have come to expect. Plus, with the addition of the Champions League and Europa League licenses, there’s even more reason to jump in and start playing. When you’re not on the pitch trying to score goals, you can take a break from the intense gameplay by exploring our vast open world. It might not be as realistic or expansive as something like Red Dead Redemption 2, but we’ve found ourselves lost for hours exploring our virtual surroundings.
If you prefer arcade shooters or racing games over your typical sports sims or RPGs, this one’s for you. Take on a variety of enemies using either futuristic weapons and gadgets or traditional military gear in combat sequences where time slows down giving players plenty of opportunity to get creative with their strategy.
If survival horror is more your speed, A Plague Tale: Innocence offers just that – mixed in with some puzzles here and there too! Set during the Black Death, this game tasks players with following Amicia and her little brother Hugo on their quest to escape France. Along the way they’ll encounter a wide range of creepy crawlies who want nothing more than to kill them both. Players will need to explore an environment divided into two halves – one belonging to living humans and the other belonging to rats infected with plague – if they want any chance at surviving! The open-world provides plenty of opportunities for sneaking around unseen, making use of traps, and finding food to keep hunger levels under control.
In all honesty, I’m surprised by how much I enjoyed this dark tale of family life gone wrong and hope that developer Asobo Studios comes out with a sequel soon! For those looking for a slightly lighter story, Kingdom Hearts 3 has you covered. Originally released in January 2019, the game sees Sora attempting to stop King Mickey from leaving his friends behind and make sure he doesn’t succumb to darkness again. He teams up with Donald Duck and Goofy once again along the way to help fend off Heartless as well as Organization XIII before he reaches his final destination.
Madden NFL 19
There’s a reason Madden NFL 19 is one of the best-selling games of all time: it’s simply that good. The latest entry in the long-running series improves on its predecessors in every way, with better graphics, more realistic gameplay, and new features that will keep you hooked for hours on end. If you’re a fan of football or video games, Madden NFL 19 is a must-play.
Red Dead Redemption 2
If you’re looking for an immersive and engaging gaming experience, look no further than Red Dead Redemption 2. This open-world western game will have you hooked from the moment you start playing. You’ll become invested in the characters and the story, and you’ll love exploring the vast world that Rockstar Games has created. If you’re a fan of action-adventure games, this is one that you definitely need to check out. It’s available on both PS4 and Xbox One so you don’t have to worry about missing out on it if you don’t own either console.
