Xbox Store Today: Skylanders SuperChargers, FIFA 16, Blood Bowl II, more

skylanderssuperchargers

Today is the first day of Fall and that means that Activision and Vicarious Visions are back with another entry in the popular Skylanders franchise. This time, the Skylanders will hop into a variety of different vehicles in Skylanders SuperChargers, which is now available to download through the Xbox Games Store on the Xbox One and Xbox 360. “Epic adventures over land, under sea, and through the sky” are promised, but you’ll need to own a Portal of Power from a previous Skylanders game to experience it all.

Also available to download this week is a pair of sports titles that use a football field in two very different ways. EA’s FIFA 16 (Xbox One, Xbox 360) is a traditional soccer simulation that features hundreds of teams from across the world. And in a first for the franchise, it also features 16 women’s teams that were part of this year’s World Cup. However, the other side of the pitch is occupied by Blood Bowl II, a turn-based strategy game that melds American football with the fantastic characters found in the Warhammer universe.

Finally this week, two arena fighters will battle it out for your gaming dollar. In this corner, Golden Ruby Games will release Extreme Exorcism, a supernatural single-screen arena fighter, for the Xbox One. And in this other corner, Self Made Miracle will release Penarium, an arena game set in a sinister circus, for the Xbox One.

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

Xbox One Games

Skylanders SuperChargers ($49.99)
Skylanders SuperChargers includes the full video game, works with any Portal of Power from the Skylanders series and includes Instant Spitfire and Instant Hot Streak. Expand your gameplay experience with over 40 Skylanders and vehicles to collect. Now you and the SuperChargers must embark on epic adventures over land, under sea, and through the sky to stop Kaos and save Skylands!

FIFA 16 ($59.99)
FIFA 16 innovates across the entire pitch to deliver a balanced, authentic, and exciting football experience that lets you play your way, and compete at a higher level. And with all new ways to play! With innovative gameplay features, FIFA 16 brings Confidence in Defending, Control in Midfield, and gives you the tools to create more Moments of Magic than ever before. Fans new to the franchise, or skilled players looking to improve their game will have a chance to Compete at a Higher Level using the all new FIFA Trainer.

Blood Bowl II ($59.99)
Blood Bowl 2 smashes Warhammer and American football together, in an explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy, humor and brutality, adapted from Games Workshop’s famous board game. Lead the famous star team Reikland Reavers back to glory, in a new solo story campaign supported by the hilarious commentators Jim & Bob. In the online persistent mode against players (or offline against the AI), create and manage your own teams comprised of eight races from the Warhammer world – Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves, Chaos, and the Bretonnian newcomers – gaining XP and unlocking new skills.

Extreme Exorcism ($12.99)
Extreme Exorcism is a paranormal platformer where every move you make comes back to haunt you. Engage in non-stop ghost annihilation in 10 eerie areas of the haunted house – each room presenting its own hellish hazard. Brave the winds on the balcony and the fire in the kitchen, surviving for as long as you can. At the end of each round, a ghost appears and mimics your every move from the round before. The longer you survive the more extreme the game becomes.

Penarium ($9.99)
Penarium is set in a sinister circus arena, where contestants, much like Gladiators of old, are forced to entertain a sadistic crowd. In this frantic 2D arena arcade game, you take on the role of our quirky antihero, Willy. To survive, Willy is forced to run, jump and avoid an array of killer death-traps. Succeed and Willy will become the Champion of Penarium. Fail and he will die in a most horrendous way, much to the delight of the baying crowd.
