Xbox One Games

There’s a brand new crop of games this week for Xbox One players. Players can travel to exotic new locations like Bikini Bottom, race awesome vehicles in Assetto Corsa Competizione, or spend the summer with Shiba Inu. Check out the latest collection of gaming goodies and then get busy playing!

Are you ready, kids? The cult classic is back, faithfully remade in spongetastic splendor! Play as SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy and show the evil Plankton that crime pays even less than Mr. Krabs. Want to save Bikini Bottom from lots of rampant robots with your mighty bubbles? Of course you do! Want to underpants bungee jump? Why wouldn’t you! Want to join forces in a brand new multiplayer mode? The battle is on!

Assetto Corsa Competizione & the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC will allow you to feel the real atmosphere of the GT3 championship and the Intercontinental GT Challenge, competing against official drivers, teams, cars, and circuits reproduced in-game with the highest level of accuracy ever achieved on console. Using sophisticated mathematical models, the engine carefully simulates tire grip, aerodynamic impact, engine parameters, suspensions, and electronics systems that determine vehicle balance, as well as the influence of mechanical damage on the car’s drivability.

When Syd the Shiba Inu returns to Shiba Island after a ten-year absence, she sets off a chain of events that overturns the lives of all the dogs she had left behind. She gets back in touch with her old friend, Max, and along the way meets a mysterious Labrador retriever named Quei-Li. (What’s a Lab doing on the Island, anyway?) They are her only remaining allies as she tries to survive the past that made her leave the Island in the first place. Your choices matter – there are multiple drastic ways to change the fate of Shiba Island, with 10+ variants depending on how you treat the dogs you meet along the way.

  • Release Date: June 24

A mysterious serial killer stalks the streets of modern-day Paris. The body count rises, and the police are no closer to catching the culprit. You are a taxi driver and survivor to the killer’s most recent attacks, having barely escaped with your life. You have seven nights to help find the killer, or the police will pin it on you. These next few shifts will be far from ordinary or safe… Night Call is a narrative-driven noire investigation game. You are no detective, but you do have a gift. Around you, people feel more at ease. They talk. They share their thoughts, their emotions, their stories… their secrets. To passengers, you are more than just a driver; you are also a friend, a confidant, a shrink. A voyeur catching a glimpse under the masked but very real lives throughout the City of Light. And you’ll need to play these roles well if you want to catch the killer.

  • Title: Control: The Foundation (DLC)
  • Release Date: June 25
  • Price: Unknown

The Astral Plane is colliding with our reality and it is up to the Director to travel through the caverns to search for answers and prevent it from taking over the Oldest House. Helen Marshall, Head of Operations, is nowhere to be seen but may hold key information to what’s going on. It’s up to Jesse as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Control to seek answers and prevent destruction to the Oldest House.

Lead the ultimate party of heroes into the Tower of Time, a vertical battleground filled with lore, mystery, and combat. Combining the nuances of classic RPGs with challenging tactical combat, Tower of Time transforms each battle into a puzzle of magic and mettle. Slow or pause time to plan your every move: strategically place your warriors, control the battleground with precise spells, counter incoming waves with devastating maneuvers.

Yes, Your Grace tells a tale of Davern, a medieval kingdom ruled by King Eryk. The game is set in a fictional world where monsters and arcane practices inspired by Slavic folklore are the order of the day. Villagers will ask for your help with various problems, from monsters attacking the village to a lack of places to relax and enjoy themselves. Some will bring humor to your throne room and some will present you with difficult choices. Your family is important too, and throughout your time as King, you will have to support them in their struggles.

Forget everything you’ve ever seen and heard in the altruistic, goody two-shoes fantasy adventures you’ve played before – it’s time to be selfish, mean and downright greedy, because Dungeons 3: Complete Collection is packing every DLC expansion and update released to date in one almighty, fire-breathing, beer-guzzling package.

Venture forth into the world of Conan the Barbarian, traverse among a cast of strange and wondrous creatures… and crush ‘em all to bits in this epic hack ‘n’ slash rogue-lite for 1-4 players.
