There are tombs to be raided, hoops to be made and ice to be hit by those who are looking to pick up one of the three new high profile games heading onto the shelves of your local gaming retailer. So, without further ado, let’s take a proper look at the Xbox One games ‘In Stores This Week’.
NBA 2K19 – 11th September – Xbox One
The 20th Anniversary of the NBA 2K series looks to raise its pro balling game once more, with MyCAREER delivering another big budget narrative as it features the likes of Anthony Mackie (Marvel’s Avengers, Altered Carbon), Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense, Silicon Valley), and Michael Rapaport (Atypical, White Famous). Of course, the open-world neighbourhood is set to return alongside the much loved modes like MyTeam and MyGM. The various gameplay changes for NBA 2K19 come in the form of a rebuilt stealing system, the inclusion of an attribute boosting Takeover skill, a whole load of nifty dribbling moves to embarrass the opposition with, and improvements to the shot meter.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider – 14th September – Xbox One
It’s time for the defining moment of Lara Croft’s journey so far and she must become one with the jungle in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The world is under threat from a Maya apocalypse, but in order to save it, Lara must master the deadly jungle and overcome the terrifying tombs, which will ultimately cement her status as the legendary Tomb Raider. To survive and thrive in an environment where she’s constantly outgunned and outnumbered, she must strike swiftly, blend in and be the enemies’ worst nightmare. It’s not all combat based though, with traversing the tombs and solving the deadliest of puzzles a vital part of the experience too.
