Deep Rock Galactic

\

Deep Rock Galactic is a co-op-first first-person shooter featuring badass space dwarves, completely destructible environments, procedurally-generated caves, and endless hordes of alien monsters. Hoxxes IV has the highest concentration of valuable minerals ever discovered; however, everything on the planet from the creatures to the fauna is extremely hostile.

Deep Rock Galactic should exit Xbox Game Preview on May 13. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced. You can purchase Deep Rock Galactic for $30 on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Ion Fury

Ion Fury laughs at the idea of mandatory checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But, just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn't mean we've ignored all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought. Headshots? Hell yeah. More physics and interactivity? You betcha.

Ion Fury should launch on May 14. The game runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X. You can purchase Ion Fury for $25 on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Super Mega Baseball 3

Super Mega Baseball 3 refines the series' formula with the deepest on-field simulation yet, comprehensive online and offline game modes including a brand new Franchise mode, and vastly improved graphics. New content includes revamped interface plus tons of new audio, team/character content, and stadiums with variable lighting conditions.

Super Mega Baseball 3 should launch on May 13. You can purchase it on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).
