A week of gaming with just a single new release or two in the world of Xbox One and Xbox 360 could be considered the calm before the storm at the moment, given the sheer amount big games coming out regularly. But this so called calm sees a huge sports title and an official racer hit the store shelves, so let’s take a look at what’s ‘In Stores This Week’.

FIFA 18 – 29th September – Xbox One & Xbox 360
That next instalment of the FIFA series is set to be bigger and better than ever as it overhauls the player control, offering more responsiveness in the movement and new dribbling mechanics to prove additional creativity to the action. All the usual modes will return such as the dream team builder Ultimate Team, the 11vs11 antics of Pro Clubs, and the managerial challenge of Career. Alex Hunter’s next chapter features as well, ensuring The Journey prospers with a star-studded cast, more to play for and consequences for the decisions you make. FIFA 18 wants to be the most authentic football game on the market, but will you venture onto the pitch to find out if it succeeds?
FIFA 18 is also available on the Xbox 360 in the form of the Legacy Edition, which brings most of the same modes and innovations; with the exception of Pro Clubs and The Journey modes.
