Variety is the spice of life and so, this week’s offerings for Xbox One could bring new experiences your way, in the form of racing and shooter games. Want to know what they are?
Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide – 4th October – Xbox One
Ubersreik has been ruined at the hands of the dreaded Skaven army, and now it’s time to take the role of a hero to hack and slash at their forces, running them out of the city and making a final stand. This story offers a new perspective on the End Times and provides over a dozen levels to playthrough as one of five distinctly different heroes, each with their own story to tell. You can team up with others in co-operative multiplayer, or go it alone with a few bots to bolster the squad, in order to take down the unpredictable enemies.

WRC 6 – 7th October – Xbox One
The official game of the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship season looks set to offer plenty of authenticity by featuring all 14 rounds – even Rally China for the first time – and the WRC drivers. There’s also a decent selection of WRC 2 teams and some competitors from the Junior WRC category. Making a return is the eSports WRC international competition, with changes to the ruls and format this year. The WRC experience should be improved in both a gameplay and audio sense, as the developers have seemingly taken into account the community feedback they received.

Mafia III – 7th October – Xbox One
Take a trip back in time, to 1968 to be specific, in New Bordeaux where you’ll be placed firmly into the shoes of a Vietnam veteran. Lincoln Clay wants revenge after a despicable act by the mob and so he’s decided to tear apart the Italian Mafia within this seedy open-world they rule, along with the corrupt officials. Go full force with guns blazing, or take a more tactical approach, that’s your choice to make as long as the end result is the same. The only way to make it to the top is by building your own empire… are you ready to start a new family and burn the old one to the ground?
