The Xbox One titles are beginning to roll into stores more frequently again now, with four fairly big games releasing in the next seven days. There’s a mixture of both classic and fresh ideas to explore, so let’s get stuck in to discover what’s ‘In Stores This Week’ for Xbox One.
Agony – 29th May – Xbox One
Hell literally awaits you in this agonising horror survival game, seeing you thrown into the midst of hell, tasked to stay alive and find the sole entity holding the knowledge required to escape – the mysterious Red Goddess. Expect to be haunted by nightmarish looking creatures as you attempt to locate a way out, taking possession of demons and other souls along the way. Venture into the secret realms of hell and embrace the hostile environment in this damning tale. Aside from the main story mode, there’s also an Agony mode, which presents procedurally generated chambers to truly test your survival skills.

New features allow for the modern day conveniences of saving your game at any time, rewinding those usually unforgiving slip-ups, and customising your controls.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection – 29th May – Xbox One
It’s time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of a legendary fighting video game series, and there’s no better way to do that than by getting your hands on 12 of its iconic titles in one collection. Whether you want to have fisticuffs on the original Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter III or one of its many Alpha and Turbo incarnations, there’s a great selection to be had. Four of them even include the capacity to venture online for more competition and to put those fighting skills to the test. After you’ve put a beat down on Ken, Ryu, Blanka and the rest of the characters, relax and take a trip down memory lane with the Museum mode, where you can take in the artwork and uncover lesser known facts from the series.
