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.
