A fair few new titles are set to arrive on the store shelves in the coming days, allowing gamers to flex those muscles, laugh out loud at a potentially hilarious RPG and experience a post-apocalyptic world. Let’s get stuck in and take a look at exactly what new games are ‘In Stores This Week’ for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
ELEX – 17th October – Xbox One
ELEX sends you to a post-apocalyptic sci-fi universe for an open-world RPG set in Magalan – a planet recently hit with a meteor and a place where magic and mechs go hand in hand. Expect to find lots of original characters and mutants as you control a character moulded by your choices. The possessed skills of your character will only be developed by earning the trust of teachers; therefore decisions made will be important. This character can be kitted out with weapons such as an axe, a rocket launcher or a harpoon, whilst magic powers are also on offer. Make allies, roam the world as you see fit and jetpack to wherever you need to be, but just be wary of the mutated creatures lurking in this polluted planet.

WWE 2K18 – 17th October – Xbox One
The WWE 2K series returns with biggest roster we’ve ever seen, featuring all the big names like Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Jinder Mahal etc. An overhaul in the gameplay should see a more realistic in-ring experience, whilst a brand new rendering system ensures that the visuals are of a higher standard than before. There’s a huge focus on MyCAREER and making your mark on the main roster using MyPLAYER – a created character – to form alliances, challenge rivals and work towards forging some WrestleMania moments along the way. The MyPLAYER can also be taken online in RoadToGlory to test your skills against players around the world. For the creative minded gamers, an even deeper set of customisation tools are presented to you, enabling you to add your own ideas in terms of Superstars, Arenas, Titles and more.
