Xbox Store Today: Cities Skylines, Halo Wars Definitive Edition, Deformers, more

Build and destroy in today’s Xbox Games Store update…

Cities: Skylines was originally released for the PC back in 2015, but console players will get the chance to create the cityscape of their dreams with its Xbox One debut. Rebuilt from the ground up to make use of the Xbox One controller, Cities: Skylines also includes the After Dark expansion, which adds nightlife and tourist attractions to your urban planning portfolio.

Also available to download today is Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, an Xbox One re-release of the real-time strategy game that was originally released for the Xbox 360. Featuring improved graphics, new Achievements, and all the DLC from the original game, players will be able to build their army and destroy the Covenant in this spinoff from the popular Halo series.

Finally today, GameStop’s GameTrust label will bring Ready At Dawn’s Deformers to the Xbox One. The “fast and frantic” multiplayer arena game includes both couch co-op and online battles with combatants ranging from aliens to animals to blobs.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break.
