Microsoft’s Summer Spotlight comes to an end this week as the Xbox Games Store adds eight new titles to its digital shelves.

This week’s biggest release is definitely Madden NFL 16 for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The latest rendition of EA’s popular football franchise focuses on the passing game and even features Odell Beckham’s wild catch on the cover. But a trio of classic games are also being re-released on the Xbox One this week and many gamers are no doubt looking forward to playing them again…

  • Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is a remake of one of the Xbox 360’s signature shooters and brings us back to the beginnings of the war with the Locust Horde.
  • Capcom’s Mega Man Legacy Collection compiles the first six Mega Man games into a single package alongside a brand new Challenge Mode and an extensive collection of trivia and concept art.
  • Finally, Dishonored: Definitive Edition upgrades Corvo’s stealthy mission of revenge while including all of the game’s downloadable content.

Information on all of these games and several other new releases (including Goat Simulator: Mmmore Goatz Edition and Don’t Starve: Giant Edition) can be found after the break.
