Another week has come and gone in the world of Xbox, with plenty of news, opinions and reviews hitting TheXboxHub. So, let’s have a look at some of the best or most interesting articles between the 6th and 12th December 2015.
A shed load of details emerged for LEGO’s next video game Marvel’s Avengers, with various iconic locations revealed as being a part of the free roam experience. These include Asgard, New York City, Sokovia and Barton Farm, to name just a few explorable areas. There was also a smashing trailer which showed off some of the great action sequences based on the Avengers films and a dash of that good old LEGO humour too.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is just around the corner and you’d be mad to not give the trailer a watch, especially if you’re still unsure as to whether it’s worth picking up.
It seems like an age ago since we saw the first part, China, of the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series, being dropped onto the Xbox Games Store.
Now, the rest of the trilogy finally have release dates that will see the India and Russia versions appear in the early months of 2016. AC Chronicles India will thrust the player into the tense situation between the Sikh Empire and private armies of a British owned East India Company. The concluding part in Russia involves stealing an artifact from a house where the Bolsheviks are holding the Tsar’s family captive.
These remaining Chronicles will certainly take you to some interesting locations and it’s good to see they’re finally getting released.
Put your hands up if you use the Xbox One Game Preview… well, I bet there’ll be a few more raised when this next game becomes available in this way.
In just a couple more days you’ll get the chance to buy ARK: Survival Evolved early as part of the preview scheme, ahead of its full game launch. Just imagine being able to breed, ride and train dinosaurs. You won’t have to imagine it much long as you can do just that in this online survival title, with more than 50 creatures being included in the Xbox Game Preview and plenty more to come.
Will you thrive in this massive ecosystem?
There are more and more Xbox controller variations populating the market these days, but very few have the distinctive look of the PDP Afterglow Prismatic one.
We reviewed this model and found it to be useful where button customisation is concerned, even if it isn’t a feature we’d regularly use. The feel of it was impressive, offering a much smoother option to the standard Xbox controllers and the pretty lights that can emit different colours of varying brightness are very cool. One of the major drawbacks came in the form of it being a wired controller; no one likes wires do they, really?

When you’re trying to think of all the best exclusive games on the Xbox One, it’s easy to forget a couple along the way. So, we thought we’d go over the top 10 exclusives titles that are available to buy right now.
Of course, not everyone will agree with the choices but taking a look at the list suggests there has been some really awesome games released already, even if some are only exclusive for a limited time. The Forza series has churned out real quality in such a short next-gen lifespan and the ever reliable Master Chief makes an appearance in Halo 5 which delivers a great multiplayer offering.
Did we miss any that you rated highly? Check out the whole list to see if we did.
That’s all for another week, but I’m sure we’ll catch up again soon… in seven days probably.
