After debuting earlier this week with the mega-sized “Early Enlister Edition,” EA and DICE are back with the basic edition of Battlefield 1. Now available to download through the Xbox Games Store for the Xbox One, Battlefield 1 is one of the first games to be set during World War I with an “adventure-filled campaign” and “epic multiplayer battles” on land, sea, air, and horseback.
Also available to download this week is The Jackbox Party Pack 3, yet another collection of party games for the Xbox One from Jackbox Games. This time, players will be able to answer endless questions in “Quiplash 2,” deal with deadly trivia in “Trivia Murder Party,” guess the results to silly survey questions in “Guesspionage,” fight it out with custom t-shirts in “Tee K.O.,” and trick their friends in “Fakin’ It.”
On the other hand, the only people invited to the party in Slain: Back From Hell are the the undead kind. In this new “MetroidVania” for the Xbox One, players will control the fate of Bathoryn, “a doomed hero in a Gothic world, who seeks to liberate six cursed realms from six deadly overlords.”
Finally this week, Horse Racing 2016 brings the “Sport of Kings” to the Xbox One.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
