Wondering what games are coming to Xbox this month? Worry not, we’ve compiled a list of the biggest and most interesting releases right here for you, complete with links to trailers (when available).
Outriders – Square Enix
Although Square Enix’s last foray into the live service genre isn’t quite panning out as they hoped, the buzz for Outriders is still high. Coming from action specialists People Can Fly this title looks to take their propensity for over the top fun and chuck it into the online realm. A demo is available right now (and your progress carries over to the full game) but perhaps the biggest boon for Xbox players is that this is coming into Game Pass at launch! Here’s hoping that can give it a great head start, and that it lives up to players expectations.
Lost Words: Beyond The Page – Modus Games
Originally a Stadia exclusive, this tale penned by author Rhianna Pratchett got some love when it first released. Coming to console this month, it looks to be a charming adventure that should provide a nice alternative to the game above!
MLB The Show 21 – Sony San Diego Studio
We truly are in unprecedented times; not only are Microsoft publishing a handful Playstation exclusives, but Sony are bringing their until now exclusive (and highly regarded) first party developed baseball title to Xbox at last. Xbox gamers have long been crying out for a good baseball game (sorry RBI), and this pairing of cats and dogs looks set to deliver on that wish. Is it too early to hope that the pair might team up with other exclusives crossing over? Absolutely, but we can dream, right?
Second Extinction – Systemic Reaction
Despite dinosaurs being fucking cool, there are very few games with them in. Second Extinction is here to rectify that, with a take on the Left 4 Dead formula, but with DINOSAURS. Work your way through levels to comlete objectives while fending off all sorts of fantastical dinos. IGN have a 16 minute gameplay clip and it looks like a lot of co-op fun.
