lifeisstrange-header

Two episodic adventures will come to an end in this week’s Xbox Games Store update.

Dontnod’s Life Is Strange will conclude with the release of Polarized. Max finally learns about the full extent of her time travel capabilities and must make a decision that could spell the end for Arcadia Bay. Apocalyptic storms might only be the beginning. Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands is a bit more upbeat, but the conclusion to its story, The Vault of the Traveler, will likely offer up a similar amount of thrills. Rhys and Fiona are heading back to Pandora, but the promise of “sweet alien riches” is sending them on a short detour first. Life Is Strange: Polarized and Tales From the Borderlands: The Vault of the Traveler will be released for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Also available this week is a pair of new Just Dance games from Ubisoft. Just Dance 2016 will include 42 new songs from artists such as Meghan Trainor, Bruno Mars, The Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Jason Derulo, and more. And a different set of dance moves will be available in Just Dance: Disney Party 2, which will include songs from Violetta, Girl Meets World, K.C. Undercover, and more. Both games will be released for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Finally this week, what time is it? It’s time to play Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations, a crime-solving detective game, on the Xbox 360. An Xbox One version will be released at a later date.

More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
