Gears of War: Ultimate Edition

The cogs keep on turning

When Gears of War first launched for the Xbox 360 back in 2006, it was arguably the most beautiful game on any console at the time. That game launched Xbox's second best selling franchise and have spawned a handful of sequels.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition lets Xbox One owners relive the beginning of Delta Squad's journey to take down the Locust Horde. The game remasters the complete single player campaign as well as adding some chapters that were exclusive to the PC version. As for multiplayer, all 19 maps have been given a visual upgrade and you also get to play at a flawless 1080p 60fps.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition revives itself for the Xbox One Tuesday, August 25.

Be the playmaker

Madden NFL 16 once again delivers its premiere gameplay with some fresh new additions. Most of this year's gameplay additions focus on the Quarterback and the Wide Receivers. Both positions have been outfitted with deeper controls that allow you to gain the edge over your opponents.

Perhaps the biggest feature of the year is Draft Champions. This new mode combines the best of fantasy football with the experience of the NFL draft to give you a new challenging event. Madden NFL 16 launches Tuesday, August 25.

Whispering Willows

Elena the friendly ghost

In Whispering Willows, you play as a young girl named Elena as she makes her way around Willows Mansion. Elena is no ordinary girl, though, as she can project her spirit outside of her body. She uses her ability around the mansion to help ghosts that are stuck on the grounds to make their way to the 'other side'. That being said there are a few evil spirits that lurk within the mansion and are out to get Elena and the good-spirited ghosts (no pun intended).

Can you use Elena's physical and spiritual body to solve puzzles and find her missing father? Find out this week when Whispering Willows comes to Xbox One on August 28.

Dishonored: Definitive Edition

Dishonored is a first-person action-adventure game that focuses on stealth to make your way through enemies. You play as Corvo, who once was the bodyguard of the Empress until you were framed for her murder.

Now you are an elite assassin who carries out missions to find out who the true killer is and to exact his revenge. The Definitive Edition brings the game and all of the downloadable content to the new consoles all while giving it a visual facelift. Dishonored: Definitive Edition comes to the Xbox One, August 25.
