Every week, numerous games launch on Xbox One, but which ones truly stand out? Here are some of the biggest and most anticipated titles launching across Microsoft's platforms next week. We have a few new smaller releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is finally launching on the console, and Journey to the Savage Planet offers an interesting take on the first-person shooter genre. With that in mind, here are all the best games launching next week, between January 27 and 31.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
The god Eothas awakens from his slumber, killing you and stealing a piece of your soul. Now resurrected, it is up to you and your companions to use magic, gunpowder, and steel to uncover the rogue god's machinations as he tramples across the Deadfire Archipelago.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire should launch on January 28, starting at $60.
Explore the world
Grab it before they're gone
The award-winning game from the masters at Obsidian Entertainment finally arrives on Xbox One. The package features all major updates and expansions. Bend the world to your will as you explore the depths of infinite possibilities.
Journey to the Savage Planet
Welcome to the Pioneer Program! In this upbeat and colorful, co-op adventure game, you play as the newest recruit to Kindred Aerospace. Dropped onto an uncharted planet with little equipment and no real plan, you must explore, catalog alien flora and fauna and determine if this planet is fit for human habitation. But perhaps you are not the first to set foot here.
Journey to the Savage Planet should launch on January 28, priced at $30. The game appears to be Xbox One X Enhanced based on early analyses.
Journey to the Savage Planet looks like a fun romp through a colorful new world as you try to determine if it's suitable for human habitation. Preordering will also give you access to two bonus items.
Other experiences like Code Shifter, Coffee Talk, HyperDot, Monster Energy Supercross 3: Special Edition, and Music Racer should also release next week. If you're looking for a break between those heavy-hitters, be sure to check out these games because they're a lot of fun.
