It has been a wonderful year for the Xbox community. We didn’t a lot of Xbox One exclusives but we sure witness the release of the world’s most powerful console ever made. Xbox One X debuted this November to much hype from the gaming industry. The latest innovation from the Redmond based giant packs a punch with an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz. With 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and 1TB of storage, it makes sure you never run out of resources and compromise your quality time this holiday season.
We present you the list of some of the best titles you can grab this Christmas on the Xbox One. Let’s check them out already.
The first one on the list has to be Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII. After listening to the fan’s feedback, the triple-A publisher finally went back to the series’ roots with this year’s installment. Call of Duty: WWII offers authentic World War experience experience best on the Microsoft’s platform. The game sees the return of the fan-favorite Zombies mode as well. WWII has been built using a brand new engine that harnesses the power of the new console and delivers a true next gen experience to the players. The game looks stunning in ultra HD throughout its 6 hours long single player campaign. In addition to the normal multiplayer modes, Sledgehammer Games added War Mode that was met with positive reviews from both the fans as well as critics.
The seventh installment in the critically acclaimed racing simulation series is available now. With the new dynamic weather system and HDR enabled visuals, Forza Motorsport is a feast for the eyes of car lovers. Despite being a racing simulator and presence of classic tracks and real world automobile masterpieces, the game is enjoyable much as an arcade style racer. The sound work done by Turn10 is impressive as well. If you’re looking to take a drive around your favorite circuits around the world by sitting on your couch, this might be the best choice available.
You, a fan of Dark Souls? And the 1930s style cartoons? Then Cuphead might be your cup of tea. Cuphead’s development began back in 2010 and has been constant topic for discussion in the industry since. Only till late this year, we were finally able to get our hands on this masterpiece. Developed by StudioMDHR, the game is a run and gun game where the protagonist is presented with a number of evil bosses in order to repay a debt to the devil. The visuals are beautifully made with perfection and catches the 1930s spirit in the best possible way. Over 2 million copies of the game have been sold already and there’s no stopping. Don’t forget to grab yours.
The second game in the Bungie developed series was launched this year. The highly anticipated title was also released on PC after the demand from the fan community. Destiny 2 is a beautiful space opera that offers epic battles with big guns and tons of stuff to explore. The campaign has been described as “a much more enjoyable and richer experience than the rather lackluster single-player story that arrived with the original game. GameSpot’s Kallie Paige called it a similar experience to the first game yet elegant in its own way due to several tweaks and additions. It’s great addition to your games library at the end of the year.
Brett Phipps of TrustedReviews calls this year’s FIFA entry as the best one since its inception. FIFA 18’s Journey mode sees the return of our hero, Alex Hunter, from the previous installment. Unlike FIFA 17, Alex Hunter can now travel to different parts to the world to face new challenges and many popular faces in the football world also make their appearance throughout the story mode. Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, Dele Alli and Thomas Müller are just to name a few. Although, it’s way behind PES in terms of delivering fluid, satisfying football, it manages to keep you engaged for hours. All of this looks and plays its best on the Microsoft’s enhanced Xbox One X. If you’re planning to a New Year party with your friends, look no further.
