This week we have one new "AAA" release on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Far Cry 5 is finally launching after numerous delays, and PixARK transports you to a world filled with dinosaur-taming goodness. With that in mind, here are all the biggest games launching this week, between March 26 and March 30, 2018.

Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 is set in America, which is a first for the franchise. The game offers players complete freedom to navigate a serene but deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of Hope County, Montana. The new junior deputy finds that their arrival accelerates a silent coup by a fanatical cult. The Project at Eden's Gate wants a violent takeover. With the outside world cutting ties to the region, it's up to you to join forces with normal individuals, form a resistance, and take back the land.

If Ark: Survival Evolved were to have a child with Minecraft, then PixARK would be the end result. Just like Ark: Survival Evolved, PixARK leaves a group of players stranded on a mysterious island. As expected, to survive, they must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, and build shelters to protect themselves from dinosaurs, natural disasters, and hostile human players. The developer claims that interactions with other players can be cooperative but it's probably safer to assume that they won't be.

PixARK should launch on March 27 in Xbox Game Preview. The game features Xbox One X enhancements.

Alteric should launch on March 30, priced at $4.99. The game features Xbox One X enhancements.
