Not every developer has left World War II behind, and Rebellion returns to that massive conflict between the Allies and the Axis in Sniper Elite 4, which is now available to download for the Xbox One. Players will once again take control of Karl Fairburne, an American sniper who has been moved to the Italian front. There, he’ll “fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before it’s even begun.”
Also available to download for the Xbox One today is For Honor, Ubisoft’s medieval combat game that pits Knights, Viking, and Samurai against each other in a three-way battle royale. Players will be able to choose a Faction and then fight it out in the game’s single-player Story Mode and online multiplayer modes.
Finally today, racing fans will be able to download Ride 2 for the Xbox One. Developed by Milestone, Ride 2 is a motorcycle racing simulation more than 170 bikes and over 30 tracks.
You can learn more about all of these games (and the rest of today’s additions to the Xbox Games Store) after the break.
