ID@Xbox Week in Review

While Summer typically sees a lull in high-profile game releases, there’s been a torrent of new games to play on Xbox One. In addition to EA Sports UFC, a new Transformers title, and Valiant Hearts, the past 10 days have seen a half-dozen new titles come to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program. Here’s a recap:

  • Sixty Second Shooter Prime – You have one minute – and one life – with which to deal as much destruction as possible. (more on Sixty Second Shooter Prime developer Happion Laboratories over on Xbox Wire)
  • Outlast –  In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum.
  • Zombie Driver Ultimate Edition – Cars, speed, explosions, blood and zombies. A new and specially improved version, exclusively for the Xbox One .
  • R.B.I. Baseball 14 – Retro baseball gameplay updated with modern graphics, 2014 players and all 30 MLB teams.
  • Another World 20th Anniversary Edition – Another World (aka Out of This World) is back in its 20th Anniversary Edition with HD graphics faithful to the original design.
  • Contrast – Experience and explore a surreal 1920s dreamscape in a vaudevillian, film noir-inspired almost-reality.

  • edc


  • Blankman6

    The ID@Xbox game that I’m most looking forward to is White Night. Gotta love the noire-styled games! The survival horror, investigation, & sleuthing look promising.

  • mrtoft

    Outlast is an awesome game on the PC, and I’ve heard good things about Contrast.

  • lee gutierrez


  • James Young

    Just like nearly everyone I’m most looking forward to playing outlast. Haven’t had much money to play with two new children around so my newest games are all launch games. I’ve been hearing too much about outlast.

  • OrangeRhino

    Looking forward to Contrast.

  • xenophi13

    Looking forward to Outlast the most.

  • desosav

    outlast seems to be the most promising!

  • Jon Taylor

    Outlast for sure, but I loved the original Another World back in the day, it was something original and I’ll never forget the alien guys funny voice…classic

  • deadbox102

    I have to admit, I’m enjoying Contrast much more than I thought I would.

  • cactushead

    Another World is a true classic and is what I am most looking forward to replaying

  • Joshua Cigna

    Outlast for sure! Too bad I’m too late for the contest. =(

  • Barg Alexander Rivera

    Its funny to read all the positive comments when theres a free prize on the line lol

    • coldfusionangel

      Excessive negativity usually doesn’t get one very far. Nice equals better chances at winning something for Free ;) And it doesn’t cost a thing, either lol

  • Gareth Mee

    Outlast because I can’t remember the last time a “scary” movie scared me, hopefully a video-game can! Also, I have it free for the PS4 as I’m a PS+ member but don’t plan on buying a PS4 anytime soon so please, I’d like it for my XBONE!!! ;) Thanks (leisure-suit) Larry!

  • David Do0M

    Woo Hoo! I actually won! I never win any contests. Big thanks to Larry and Jeff! You guys rock!

    • maxy

      Lucky you, damn! Im so jealous.

  • James176

    Outlast has me excited it’s a game that will scare the hell out of you the last time I was scared was when I played dead space on the 360

  • Joshua Ford

    R.B.I. Baseball a remake of a classic baseball i used to love to play in the 90’s who wouldn’t want this game

  • deadbox102

    Congrats to the winners.

  • jdidve

    One day I’ll win one of these

  • coldfusionangel

    Thanks Larry and Jeff! R.B.I. Baseball 14 is a great retro throwback to the original! I SUCK at it right now but can’t stop playing!! I recommend it to anyone who does not have it and is considering :) Glad I entered my name in for this week’s FreeCodeFriday – I generally don’t win things, so this really made my day. CONGRATS to all the other winners this week and enjoy your free games!! For those who haven’t won yet, keep tryin and good luck!
