The month of August is coming to a close (which also means today’s your last chance to grab Warriors Orochi Ultimate 3 and Beyond Good & Evil HD as part of Microsoft’s Games With Gold program) and we’ve got a handful of new titles to talk about on the Xbox Games Store…
Armello was originally released for the PC and PS4 last year, but the “grand swashbuckling adventure” that combines card games, tabletop board games, and RPG mechanics is now available to download for the Xbox One. And a launch week discount means that interested players can pick it up for 25% this week.
Also available this week is Koei Tecmo’s game adaptation of Attack On Titan. The popular anime brings its battle between the man-eating Titans and Eren and his companions to the Xbox One for the first time while also promising “a few original twists.”
Finally this week, Capcom will bring Resident Evil 4 to the Xbox One with enhanced and another set of Achievements. If you’ve never experienced Leon S. Kennedy’s fight for survival against Las Plagas, now’s your chance.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
