It has begun… umm… again! NetherRealm Studios added Mortal Kombat XL (Xbox One) to the Xbox Games Store today, which expands the original game with nine new characters, a packed closet of new costumes, and the return of “The Pit.” Players who already own 2015’s Mortal Kombat X can purchase the Kombat Pack and Kombat Pack 2 to get the full XL experience.
Also available today is Prison Architect: Xbox One Edition, the latest addition to the Xbox One Game Preview program. As you might expect from the title, players will design and operate their own prison, and whether its a quiet county lockup or a sprawling Super Max is entirely up to you.
More information on both of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.

Xbox One Game Preview
In Prison Architect you will see the impact of your grand design on the lives of your inmates; be it a utopic center for rehabilitation, a brutal Super Max Prison or anything in between. Even when all of your prisoners’ needs are met, remember one thing – it’s still a prison and no one really wants to be there. Start your journey into the world of Prison Architect by playing through the Prison Stories (campaign). You’ll quickly learn how to cope with blazing infernos, hostage situations and prison wide riots – if you make it through all that unscathed, the Mayor will be ready to give you the reigns of a brand new prison development where you can build the prison of your dreams.
Screencheat is the ridiculous splitscreen shooter where everyone is invisible so you have to “screencheat” (Screencheat – verb: to look at your opponent’s screens. “Stop screencheating you cheater!”). Master a wide variety of one-hit kill weapons including a blunderbuss, a car engine that shoots bouncing plasma balls and a teddy bear loaded with explosives. Train your skills in the solo time trials then engage in fast and frantic combat with up to eight players locally on the couch or online. With colorful maps, unique modes and a huge number of customization options including wacky mutators, Screencheat is the ultimate party FPS.
Gunscape is an FPS world-building hybrid in which gamers create, share and enjoy their own maps; in addition players can discover and play maps created by others. Inspired by classic shooters, Gunscape takes all their most memorable elements and puts them in a toolkit to create single player and co-op campaigns or multiplayer arenas. Don’t like building stuff? Then just blast your way through hordes of monsters or duel with other players online or split-screen! Maps can also be shared, played and voted on by the whole world, so you’ll always have new levels at your fingertips!
Alekhine’s Gun ($49.99)
Make Your Move! It is the height of the Cold War, a time of global uncertainty and civil unrest. You are Agent Alekhine, a highly skilled Russian assassin working alongside American CIA agents in a covert operation unsanctioned by the country you have served. With the tension of a nuclear standoff growing with each passing minute, your mission is clear…though how you accomplish it is anything but. Only one thing is certain: Time won’t stop, and it’s too late to go backward. As you unravel the conspiracy unfolding in front of your very eyes, the fate of America, and quite possibly the world, lies within your hands.
