Here Are This Week's New Xbox One Games

Xbox players have plenty to choose from this week.


It's another packed week of releases for Xbox One. A total of 18 new games arrive on the console this week, with a number of them already available at retail and in the Xbox Store.

Tuesday's batch of releases contains some especially noteworthy titles. Among them is ReCore: Definitive Edition, an enhanced version of last year's action game. Along with improved visuals, the title features new content in the form of new Core bots, dungeons, and more. The most signification addition, however, is Eye of Obsidian, a new adventure that takes players to the Starving Sea, a previously unexplored area of the planet. You can pick up Definitive Edition for $20/£15; those who already own the original ReCore can download an update that adds all of the new content to the title for free.
