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, F1 2020 and Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris are launching soon. With that in mind, here are all the best games hitting the Microsoft Store this week, between July 6 and 10. You can take a look at some of our past selections here.
F1 2020 is the most comprehensive F1 game yet, putting players firmly in the driving seat as they race against the best drivers in the world. For the first time, players can create their own F1 team by creating a driver, then choosing a sponsor, an engine supplier, hiring a teammate, and competing as the 11th team on the grid. Build facilities, develop the team over time, and drive to the top.
F1 2020 should launch on July 10. The Deluxe Schumacher Edition should be available on July 7. The game runs at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X. You can purchase F1 2020 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) starting at $60.
