Every week, new games are released for the Xbox One. Whether they are indie titles or AAA titles, we want to make sure they're on your radar. So get your wallet ready and clear some space on your hard drive. Let's take a look at what's coming out this week for Xbox One.
Toy Soldiers: War Chest
These toys don't play nice
Toy Soldiers was first introduced back in 2010 as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion and received generally positive reviews for the game and even its sequel. Toy Soldiers: War Chest is the third game in the series and the first time not being published by Microsoft Studios.
The new game features some notable new teams that come from the mind of the developer as well as a few teams that are from existing franchises. The leaders from existing franchises include He-Man, Ezio, G.I. Joe, and Cobra. The game is said to feature new modes although there is little information about what they are. Toy Soldiers: War Chest starts the battle August 11 on Xbox One
Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings
2 parts baseball, 1 part hilarious
Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings is the Xbox One's version of a game that launched on PlayStation consoles earlier this year, but packs a bigger punch. The newer version features four new stadiums, enhanced gameplay, as well as improved baseball simulation
Although the game features a cartoony art style as well as being packed with humor, it features realistic physics and simulation. Super Mega Baseball also touts its "Ego" system which allows players to play according to their preferred difficulty. This system is offered on a per-user basis and allows different Ego settings simultaneously. Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings swings for the rafters August 14th.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
A single-player co-op experience
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is another one of those awesome games that spawned within Xbox's Summer of Arcade promotion. The game was instantly a hit with critics and gamers alike. The love of the game starts with a unique control scheme that has you controlling both brothers simultaneously. This is possible because each thumbstick represents a different brother.
That being said, the real love of the game comes from the themes that the story within the game brings about. Most of the people who played it said they felt an emotional connection to the characters even though they only spent about 3-5 hours with them. Some were even moved to tears. So if you're looking for a great story as well as great gameplay grab Brothers on August 12 when it comes to the Xbox One.
Reality vs. perception
The Bridge first made it's debut back on Xbox Live back in Spring of 2013 and was met with mixed reviews. That being said if you enjoyed the gameplay of Monument Valley this game will surely grab your attention. It brings M.C. Escher paintings to life just like Monument Valley but does it in a more dark/grim setting.
The Bridge features 48 puzzles for you to solve in a thought-provoking title that makes you manipulate gravity and explore parallel dimensions. The Bridge comes to the Xbox One on August 14.
