Every week, numerous games launch on Xbox One, but which ones truly stand out? Here are some of the biggest and most anticipated titles launching across Microsoft's platforms — including Xbox One X — next week. We have a few major releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Grounded and Yakuza Kiwami 2 are launching soon. With that in mind, here are all the best games hitting the Microsoft Store this week, between July 27 and 31. You can take a look at some of our past selections here.
Destroy All Humans!
The cult-classic returns. Terrorize the people of 1950's Earth in the role of the evil alien Crypto-137. Harvest their DNA and bring down the United States government in the faithful remake of the legendary alien invasion action-adventure. Annihilate puny humans using an assortment of alien weaponry and psychic abilities. Reduce their cities to rubble with your flying saucer!
You can purchase the game for $40 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab). Destroy All Humans! runs at 60 frames per second (FPS) on Xbox One X.
The world is a vast, beautiful, and dangerous place – especially when you have been shrunken to the size of an ant. Explore, build, and survive together in this cooperative survival-adventure. Can you thrive alongside the hordes of giant insects, fighting to survive the perils of the backyard?
Hellpoint is a dark and challenging action role-playing game set in a heavily atmospheric sci-fi universe where the line between science and occultism is blurred. Once a pinnacle of human achievement, the Irid Novo space station has fallen. Its ruins are now overrun by cruel interdimensional entities acting as puppets of the malevolent Cosmic Gods. You have been created by the Author, organically printed on Irid Novo, and sent on a mission to find out the unholy series of events that led to the catastrophic incident known as the Merge.
You can purchase the game for $35 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab). Hellpoint runs at 1440p resolution and 60 FPS on Xbox One X.
Yakuza Kiwami 2
Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, must face the ambitious Ryuji Goda, the Dragon of Kansai, in an all-out war between two rival yakuza clans. An extreme recreation of one of Yakuza's most beloved entries. There can be only one dragon.
The game will be part of Xbox Game Pass at launch.
You can take a look at some other games coming to Xbox One next week on Xbox Wire (opens in new tab). They're smaller experiences, but should be a lot of fun!
If you're looking for a break between those heavy-hitters like Resident Evil 3 that released a few months ago, be sure to check out these titles.
