It’s time to close out the week with another Xbox Games Store update. Today, Xbox One owners can choose from a quartet of new titles…
First up is Solar Shifter EX, a side-scrolling “bullet hell” shooter where players can use a special jump drive to phase out of trouble. On the other side of the galaxy we’ve got Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy, a tactical space shooter where players control a fleet of unique space vehicles in all-out war.
Also available this week is Obliteracers, an eight-player kart racer for all ages. And finally, Nightmares From the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call is yet another hidden object game, this time focusing on an “ancient conflict” at the Caribbean Naval Museum.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
