Here are the upcoming releases for the week of October 31, 2016.
Another week of Xbox One releases is on the horizon, with yet another wave of big releases. Despite shooter fans having been treated to a fair share of titles over the past month, this week looks to continue the trend.
Among this week's biggest releases is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which also ships alongside the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Hitman also receives its final installment this week, taking Agent 47 to Hokkaido, Japan. Here's a breakdown of all the releases over the coming week!
Our top picks this week:
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
The latest entry to the Call of Duty series drops this week, blasting the series forward into the far reaches of outer space. With a full-fledged campaign, multiplayer and zombies mode, the game brings together the most successful aspects of recent Call of Duty titles.
Placing players in the role of Captain Nick Reyes, the campaign takes the game's narrative to new heights with the debut of inter-planetary warfare. With a focus on both aerial and on-foot combat, the game takes place across numerous planets and satellites across the Solar System. Giving players access to a new arsenal of weapons and gadgets to experiment with, players can swiftly eliminate enemies both on the ground and in zero-gravity environments. Call of Duty's renowned multiplayer also makes a return, with new mechanics that build upon the experience from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
For those who purchase either of the game's Legacy, Legacy Pro or Digital Deluxe editions, a fully remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will also be included in the package. Spanning both the full campaign and multiplayer, veterans of the series can take a bonus trip down memory lane.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is available for $59.99 via the Microsoft Store, launching on November 4. For those who wish to gain access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the Digital Legacy Edition is available for $79.99.
Hitman: Episode 6 – Hokkaido
The sixth installment of Hitman also releases this week, taking Agent 47 to the beautiful region of Hokkaido, Japan. Featuring targets located within the grounds of a hospital and resort, Agent 47 brings chaos to the once peaceful facility.
Blending traditional Japanese architecture with the latest technologies, Hokkaido features Zen gardens, hot springs, and even an organic sushi restaurant. With all of these locations offering their own assassination opportunities.
All of this is added to the existing Hitman experience, which brings back the iconic sandbox experiences with more player choice. With dozens of ways to eliminate your targets, levels can offer multiple playthroughs with their own varied results.
