We’ve made it through the madness of the last few months, played a whole ton of games and picked up enough Gamerscore to sink a small ship. But here we are in December and yet more games are being released into the Xbox world. It must be said that the past months of October and November this is not, and there are only a few titles hitting physical stores throughout the month, but any new Xbox One game is a good thing in our eyes and you should be gearing up to check out the following.
Don’t forget, should you have ditched physical media and are attempting to embrace the digital world, then you should really be paying the team at CDKeys a little visit. Their cheap Xbox Live credit will see the cost of your games reduced and that is, in anyone’s world, a good thing.
Steep Road to the Olympics – Xbox One
The Winter Olympics are coming and the official videogame is gearing up to release. But this time round we’re not seeing a standalone title grab the money, and we’re not even seeing Sonic & Mario help promote things. No, this time round the official videogame of the Winter Olymipcs in PyeongChang comes from Ubisoft, with an expansion to their open world winter racer, Steep.
Steep Road to the Olympics comes in three different flavours – as either an expansion for those who purchased the original base game, in the Steep Winter Games Edition which includes Steep and the Road to the Olympics add-on, or in the Steep Winter Games Gold Edition which throws in the full Season Pass for good measure.
If you are looking for a game that will let you show off your skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting and paragliding skills, wish to grab some big air across freestyle events or prefer to just explore the Japanese mountain ranges that Ubisoft have kindly created, then there is quite possibly nothing better.
Carving down the powder filled slopes will never have been such fun!
The Walking Dead: Telltale Series Collection – Xbox One
Telltale Games have most definitely been throwing their episodic storytelling adventures out left, right and centre over the last few years, but the one that really kicked things off in a big way was The Walking Dead. And now we are able to get access to all 19 episodes on one big disc.
The Walking Dead: Telltale Series Collection visually enhances and brings together the scene setting Season One and its follow up Season Two, Season Three’s A New Frontier, the horror anthology that is 400 Days and the three-part Michonne mini-series starring the blade-wielding icon.
If you can’t get enough of Clementine, or just wish to go face-to-face with the undead hordes once more, then this is the collection for you.
Ōkami HD – Xbox One
Okami originally released in 2006 with an art style to die for. Now though it’s back in HD form, allowing it to look even more stunning – especially with a 4K version hitting Xbox One X.
You will be placed in the role of the Japanese sun goddess, Amaterasu, as you take on the form of a legendary white wolf ,Shiranui, before heading of on a quest to defeat the eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster, Orochi.
Utilising magical attacks and abilities, plus a whole range of weaponry, it’ll be up to you to ensure the land of Nippon is returned to its former glory, basking in life and colour.
Whether you played it previously or have never heard of Okami, if you want something that will blow your mind visually, then Okami HD will do just that.
So, there we have it, Xbox finishing 2017 on a high with a few new games arriving in our lives. What will you be grabbing? Let us know in that comments section right down below.
