Cuisine Royale is an absolutely bonkers battle royale shooter that focuses on realistic weaponry, but also features mystical traps and demonic rituals. Yes, you read that right. You can play it as a normal shooter, but you'll be missing out. From the trailer, it seems like you not only have the ability to imbue your soul with the spirit of a feral animal, but you can also teleport and utilize other tricks.
The game has "Very Positive" recent reviews on Steam and gamers on Xbox One have been clamoring to play the game ever since it launched back in 2018. Well, if you were one of those people, you're in luck. Out of nowhere, Cuisine Royale is now available through Xbox Game Preview. Since it's a free-to-play game, you don't have to worry about purchasing a broken product with your hard-earned cash.
It seems like Cuisine Royale was supposed to land on Xbox One a few months back, but we weren't able to see it or access it on our consoles. It's unclear how widespread this problem was. Luckily, that's not the case anyone so if you were one of the gamers affected, you can download and play it right now.
While Cuisine Royale is a free-to-play game, it features a lot of expensive cosmetic packs and microtransactions. However, they don't appear to give any in-game advantage that we know of. Additionally, the title doesn't appear to be Xbox One X Enhanced at the moment so it may look quite blurry on modern 4K displays.
