This week we're only seeing two new "AAA" releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, the popular fighting franchise UFC 3 returns for another outing and Railway Empire allows gamers to become a tycoon by exploiting economic opportunities. With that in mind, here are all the biggest games launching this week, between January 29 to February 2.


UFC 3 is back and visually it looks great. This installment contains a new career mode which means that players' choices outside of the world-famous Octagon ring matter just as much as their performance inside it. Taking a page from management simulators, this updated mode allows you to promote upcoming fights and create rivalries. There are a lot of other choices in the game which will affect your fighter's standing.

UFC 3 launches on February 2 with Xbox One X enhancements, starting at $59.99. Players who purchase the Champion Edition can play it early on January 30. EA Access members receive an additional 10% discount digitally.
