Every week, new games are released for the Xbox One. Whether they are indie titles or AAA titles, we want to make sure they're on your radar. So get your wallet ready and clear some space on your hard drive. Let's take a look at what's coming out this week for Xbox One.
No Time to Explain
Cannons, sharks, and giant crabs?
No Time to Explain is a ridiculous platformer in which you chase your future self through different times and alternate realities. The game has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for the Xbox One.
The game has you using your awesome future cannon as a jetpack as well as a deadly weapon to use against sharks, monsters, and giant crabs. The biggest addition in the Xbox One version is the ability to play four-player local co-op.
The game comes from tinyBuild who is planning to release a plethora of other games on the Xbox with SpeedRunners being the most anticipated. Not sure about this new developer? Well, fear not, you can grab the No Time to Explain demo that gives you 30 minutes of playtime in the game for free. If you like it, you can grab it for $14.99 this Friday.
No Time to Explain - Xbox Store - $14.99
Rory McIlroy PGA Tour
Golf without limits
Rory MCllroy PGA Tour is EA Sports latest game in the long-running golfing franchise. It also marks the first time since 1998 that the game is named after someone other than Tiger Woods. It is also the first PGA Tour game that is built for next-gen consoles with the Frostbite engine.
Some of the game's new features include a new backswing meter, aiming arc, as well as three distinctive ways to play. These three modes are Arcade, Classic, and Tour. Arcade is the easiest way to play and is geared towards novice players. Classic features your usual gameplay mechanics for those that are familiar with the franchise. Finally, Tour allows players to get as close as possible to the real thing. This mode turns off all assists and handicaps and puts you in total control.
These are some awesome additions to the franchise but what will attract most people to this year's version of the game are the new fantasy courses and the Night Club Challenge. Think of the fantasy courses as a grown up version of mini-golfing. One of the most talked about fantasy courses is Parcel Storm which is inspired by a Battlefield map and the course if features a battleship storming into the course.
Say goodnight to the sun and hello to the neon lights in the Night Club Challenge. This mode features tons of skill-based challenges and while bringing some fun into golfing.
As with every EA title on Xbox One, you can jump to EA Access to try out the game before it launches this Tuesday for $59.99.
