When the Xbox One arrived last year on November, Microsoft pushed exclusive titles like Dead Rising three, Forza Motorsport five, Killer Instinct and Ryse: Son of Rome. The publisher glad fans, however there’s much more to the lineup than a handful of exclusive games. Thankfully, there is a lot of where that came from.2015 starts in less than a month, and it looks like a promising year for Xbox One fans. Here are our top 5 games to look out for next year:5. Fable LegendsFable Legends is set in the same fantasy world of Albion, but it’s a different sort of game from its predecessors. Instead of a single-player action role-playing game, the developer calls Legends a “multiplayer online quest adventure game.” To cut through the jargon, four players (or AI-controlled characters) will act as heroes in the game, while a fifth player takes the role of the villain. The villain’s job is to set up the quest, deploy the enemies, and trigger traps as the heroes play. It sounds kind of like a dungeon master in a game of Dungeons & Dragons, which could work out very well on Xbox One.
There’s a closed beta for the game, players can register – here.4. Crackdown 3Agent, you’re back on mission. After the first two Crackdown games made waves on Xbox 360, the franchise continues on Xbox One with an even bigger city to explore, more abilities to unlock and more trouble to get into. The trailer above is all CG, but it gives you an idea of what you can do with your teammates, even if it means driving up the side of a building to bust into someone’s office. We can’t wait! 3. Quantum Break It’s been a few years since Remedy Entertainment, the creators of Alan Wake and Max Payne, worked on something new. However, Quantum Break isn’t too far off from release – and it looks amazing, as you can see from the above gameplay clip. The game features three playable characters, whose story revolves around the control of time-based elements (due to a freakish time travel accident).
This allows them to save those in danger, while also battling soldiers that will stop at nothing to shut them down. The level of ambition in this one is quite high, and should make for a fantastic experience when it releases next year. Welcome back, Remedy.2. Ori and the Blind ForestOri and the Blind Forest is a 2D adventure platformer developed by Moon Studios.
The game follows Ori, a guardian spirit who’s on a mission to save the forest he calls home. With the help of Sein, a glowing butterfly who guides him through the dark. The player takes control of both character, with Ori only able to move and jump while Sein solves puzzles and attacks the enemies on the way. The developers promise a unique way of playing combining the moves of the two characters.
Graphics look amazing too, resembling another Xbox exclusive called Dust: An Elysian Tail. The game is scheduled for early next year for Xbox One, an Xbox 360 version is planned as well and should be out shortly after the Xbox One release. 1. Halo 5: Guardians Even though it’s well over a year away, the next saga in the Halo franchise will easily be one of the most exciting, continuing Master Chief’s quest to find out what happened to his virtual partner Cortana. He’s not the only one hitting the ground running, however, as a mysterious new character will take part in the action with his own story to tell. The beta packaged with the Master Chief Collection, which kicks off this December, should also introduce a whole new level of multiplayer.
