A pair of new Xbox One games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store, so let’s get right to it…
Zheros is a colorful beat ’em up from Rimlight Studios that asks players to join the Zheros Squad and defend the universe from crime. The intergalactic action title is also the newest member of Microsoft’s Games With Gold promotion, and Xbox One owners who have an Xbox Live Gold subscription will be able to download for free until February 15.
Also available this week is Oxenfree, a supernatural adventure from Night School Studio that Entertainment Weekly called a cross between Twin Peaks and Lost with dialogue reminiscent of a Joss Whedon production.
More information on both of these games can be found after the break.
Xbox One Games
In a journey through distant and unknown galaxies, you play as the members of the Zheros Squad: Mike and Captain Dorian. Brave, strong as awkward and dim-witted the first one; agile, smart and ready for anything the second one. They are both intergalactic agents called to defend the universe from crime. From bizarre characters and encounters to strange locations, find out what mystery awaits you at the end of your journey.
Oxenfree is a supernatural thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift. Play as Alex, a bright, rebellious teenager who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party on an old military island. The night takes a terrifying turn when you unwittingly open a ghostly gate spawned from the island’s cryptic past. How you deal with these events, your peers, and the ominous creatures you’ve unleashed is up to you.
