As well as the large titles announced at Microsoft's Xbox Media Briefing at E3 2014, there were a number of smaller games unveiled that we've compiled into this short roundup. Head past the break and take a quick look at what other games are in development for the Xbox One.
Phantom Dust is an exciting reboot of an old, beloved game which was available on the original Xbox. Think of the title as a tribute to those who have been with Xbox since the beginning. It's set to be an Xbox One exclusive (obviously), tasking players with fighting in a desolate city with a card-based strategy gameplay. The short trailer showed off gorgeous graphics and we're exited to see when we'll be able to pick up this gem.
It's not known currently when Phantom Dust will be available.
Ori and the Blind Forest
This Xbox One exclusive title, Ori and the Blind Forest is yet another beautiful game coming to the console. In a fully animated style experience, players are immersed in a carefully crafted world, brought to life with its visually stunning effects. If you're a fan of the likes of Limbo, Ori and the Blind Forest is well worth keeping an eye on, brought to you by Moon Studios.
The side-scrolling adventure game looks to put light against darkness and will be casting the shadows away this coming fall.
The makers of hit game Limbo have been working on a new project for four years. Their next game is called Inside and is once again a 2D side-scrolling puzzle game that shares various similarities with the studio's last title. There are notable differences, however, including a more 3D feel and the use of color. It'll be interesting to see how players will be immersed in the story this time around.
Expect to see Inside release early next year on Xbox One.
Scalebound is also on its way to Xbox One, touting "action at a whole new scale". The game will task players with defeating hydras, dragons, enormous lizards and other terrifying beasts, utilizing magic and other means at their disposal to essentially "bound" their scales as armor. It's a really cool concept and one we expect many action fans will enjoy playing through. Oh, and did we mention you'll bond with these creatures throughout?
