Three new Xbox One games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store, and they’re all pretty different…
DC Universe Online is a free-to-play MMO set within the DC Universe. Available on the PC and PS3/PS4 for a few years, players will choose a Hero or Villain in DC Universe Online and fight alongside (or against) some of the biggest names in comics.
Paranautical Activity is a first person shooter that combines the classic style of Doom and Quake with the roguelike randomness of The Binding of Isaac and Spelunky. Players of Paranautical Activity will get to experience “procedurally generated levels, impossibly fast gameplay, hidden levels, […] ridiculous bosses, and a kick ass Dubstep soundtrack.”
Finally, JumpJet Rex straps jump boots on a T-Rex and asks him to go nuts in a side-scrolling platformer. OK, I get it, but shouldn’t a T-Rex opt for cybernetic arm enhancements? His legs are probably already pretty powerful, but T-Rex arms will always be pretty useless. Perhaps I’ve put too much thought into this…
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
