If you’re a fan of dungeon crawlers, you’ll be very “happy” to explore a trio of new games in today’s Xbox Games Store update…
First up, Toylogic’s free-to-play multiplayer adventure, Happy Dungeons, will escape the Xbox Game Preview program this week. The full version is now available to download for the Xbox One, and players will be able to customize their characters before taking on a series of “dastardly villains” in the game’s underground catacombs.
Also new this week is Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, a multiplayer survival game set in the long-running fictional universe. Now available to download for the Xbox One, Vermintide players will be able to team up with three friends and battle “the ratmen’s forces” together.
Finally this week, Bandai Namco will bring Necropolis, a third-person combat game, to the Xbox One. Necropolis promises players will experience “permadeath dungeon-delving,” and a multiplayer option will also be included.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.

Castles tells the story of the ambitious King Harold, whose greatest achievement will be the tower you are constructing. As the tower grows taller and taller, more and more challenges arise along with it. Unpredictable weather combined with the efforts of the jealous and vengeful King Edmund, King Harold’s nemesis, may thwart your upward progress. Featuring three modes of play (Story, Survival, and Competitive) the game can be enjoyed individually or as a multiplayer. With more than 50 levels of randomized gameplay in story mode, you will never play the same game twice.
