Xbox Store Today: MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Mad, Max, Disney Infinity Star Wars, more

If you’ve already perused this week’s PlayStation Store offerings, the Xbox Games Store update is going to sound very familiar to you…

The biggest name this week is most definitely Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, (presumably) the final game in the franchise developed by Hideo Kojima. Kojima and Konami still have yet to make an official announcement concerning his future with the company, but it looks like Kojima got to go out on his terms with another epic military stealth shooter for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Speaking of the word “epic,” also available this week is Mad Max (Xbox One), Avalanche’s open world adaptation of George Miller’s post-apocalyptic hero. Players will be able to find gas, explore the Wastleand, and stare down War Boys as they attempt to rebuild Max’s beloved car. It’ll probably be less exciting than Mad Max: Fury Road, but nearly everything else you can think of is less exciting than Mad Max: Fury Road.

But for the kids out there, the idea of adding Star Wars characters to the Disney Infinity formula surely ranks pretty high on the “epic” scale. So I guess it’s a good thing that Disney Interactive released Disney Infinity: Star Wars for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 earlier this week. Obviously, Disney Infinity figures are sold separately.

If you’re looking for something that you can only find on a Microsoft machine, there’s The Deer God, “a breathtaking 3D pixel art adventure that will challenge your religion and your platforming skills.” That’s sounds pretty heady for a platformer, but the artwork does look fantastic. And its available as a free download for Games With Gold subscribers.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
