Xbox One is just packed with games. But what to play and not waste your time on the bad games is the primary concern for the gamers that have limited time for gaming. And the biggest problem in delivering a perfect Xbox One top game list is the variety of genres and a vast number of playable games. But I have to take the task and make this list of best Xbox One games that at least should be tested. If you agree or disagree with my list, please post a comment below, and I will respond.
Forza Motorsport 7
The game is not yet officially released, but you can pre order. If you preorder, you can get early access and enjoy in one of the biggest motorsport series games.
The game offers over 700 cars to race. Forza Motorsport 7 is the game with the largest collection of the racing cars. You can drive an enormous number of Ferraris, Porsches, and Lamborghinis as well as other supercars.
Forza Motorsport 7 will be playable on Xbox One and Xbox One S, but the real deal will be on the new Xbox One X console. Forza Motorsport 7 will be playable in native 4K UHD resolution at 60 FPS. These means that details of the cars and the track in the game will be an absolute reality. If you love racing games and high-quality graphics, then this game is a must-have. The game offers a single player and multiplayer mode. Gamers that like to compete with others will enjoy at full the competitiveness of the Forza Motorsport 7.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Also not yet released, but the launch will come on the 10th October. Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a role-playing action game that will make you play it for weeks. The story of the game is picked up after the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game is influenced profoundly by the movies: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
The game is played from a third-person perspective and is set in the open world. You are the Tailon, a ranger of Gondor who is possessed by the elf lord Celebrimbor spirit which gives extra abilities and skills to the Tailon. With the combination of skills and abilities, you need to navigate through the world by solving various quests. Your main goal in the game is to disrupt the armies of Sauron.
The game will be released for Xbox One, Microsoft Windows as well as PlayStation 4.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Assassin’s Creed: Origins will be released at the end of the next month. Believe it or not, this is the tenth game in the series of the Assassin’s Creed. The game is played in third person view, and it is focused mainly on the actions and adventurous use of stealth ability in the game. Your character is Medjay, and the story is set in Ancient Egypt. The game is all about the eternal fight between Assassins who promote peace and liberty versus Templars who also want peace but through the order.
In the game, your goal is to gain various skills and abilities and to follow the story. But you can freely roam the open world on your own if you don’t wish to follow the story. You can use various rides in the game, horses, boats and other animals capable of carrying a human. The whole game will offer so many new things that the previous series didn’t have. Many new features are added to the game, and one of them is underwater exploration as well as naval fights. Combat mechanics are also different than in the previous series and are just made better than before.
Call of Duty WW2
For those gamers that want the first-person action comes the Call of Duty WW2. One of the most popular first-person shooter games on the market. This is the 14th version of Call of Duty franchise.
The game is set during World War 2 and will follow the 1st infantry division which was fighting on the Western Front. In the campaign mode, there are few things that are different than in the previous series. Regeneration of health is removed and to heal yourself; you will need to be treated by a medic who will use health pack on you. Other squad members also can offer ammunition and spot enemies for you. To gain extra experience you can capture enemy soldiers and save wounded allies by dragging them to cover. By collecting experience, your character skills will grow. Usage of vehicles is also possible.
In the multiplayer players are randomly selected to allies or axis squads. The whole multiplayer mode brings so many new things that the old Call of Duty 2 players will love it.
The game will be released in November, but people that have preordered were called in closed beta testing and are playing the game right now.
Need for Speed: Payback
Another game that will be released in November is the 23rd part of the Need For Speed game. Who would think that this franchise has so many sequels?
this time the game is placed in Fortune Valley, and the three main characters goal is to take down The House, a mafia that controls the underworld in the Fortune Valley.
Three main characters need to work together to pull off missions and in the end, bring down the mob. You will need to race with your supercars in an open world environment. The whole game is mainly focused on open world action-driving. And that is the biggest difference between Forza Motorsport 7 and Need for Speed: Payback, the Forza is mainly focused on track racing and Need for Speed: Payback is mostly focused on action driving.
The new old feature that is coming back to the game is a single player mode which was left out in the latest series from 2015: Need for Speed Reboot.
Star Wars Battlefront 2
For all the Star Wars fans I must include this action shooter game that will be released on 17th November 2017. This time game will be focused on single player mode. The content of this game is based on The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens movie. In the single mode, you will have a campaign mode. In the campaign mode, you will be able to control other characters except for the main character: Iden Versio.
However, in multiplayer mode, you will be able to choose from many playable heroes. Most popular ones which I am sure you would like to play are Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Yoda, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Rey, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and Finn. The latter two will be released additionally as the new content after the game is released.
FIFA 18 for Xbox One
FIFA 18 will be released later this month and will be playable on all consoles as well as Microsoft Windows. Cristiano Ronaldo is the main character of the FIFA 18 and one of the faces used in promotion material of FIFA 18. XBox One, as well as PlayStation 4, will have journey mode, a story based gameplay that was very popular in FIFA 17.
For all soccer game lovers, this game will be a refresh after a long time. Lots of new features are included. Lots of official content from stations, players, countries, clubs are added to the game. The game also offers legends so you will be able to see mega-popular soccer icons that no longer play football. Diego Armando Maradona and Pele as one of the biggest soccer stars of all time are playable in ultimate team icons mode.
F1 2017 for Xbox One
If racing supercars in Motorsport Forza 7 in high-quality resolution is not enough for you, then I am sure the new Formula One game will be sufficient. F1 2017 follows the 2017 formula one season and includes all 20 tracks, 20 drivers and 10 teams that are competing in 2017 season.
The game is not just about the racing and driving; it has a new mode that gives you more power over what to research and how to develop your car. With this new in-depth mode of what is really going on behind the car and how to research and include new parts to the car the game just got more fans to the F1 franchise.
The game has high critic rates and the primary reason for that is an excellent graphics quality and great new team management mode that gets in depth about preparing the car for the race.
Dragon Ball FighterZ for Xbox One
Looking for a fighting game to release stress? Look no further; Dragon Ball FighterZ is the perfect game for that. The game is labeled as one of the best fighting games ever. Reason for that is the famous cartoon content and the story behind the Goku and his friends who must fight against the Android 16 and his army.
In the game, you can fight as the main character, but you can fast switch to other characters and play as them as well. Also, you can have combo moves by calling other characters to assist you in the combos.
I must include this game to the list because I am a big Dragon Ball Z fan and I know there are many other fans out there that will want to try this game.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 for Xbox One
If the FIFA 18 is not enough and you want more from the soccer, there is a new version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 just to be released at the end of the September. Many famous clubs, as well as countries, are already licensed, and you will be able to enjoy the original players and clubs in the game.
The game has a single player mode and multiplayer mode, and I am sure that will be more than enough for all soccer fans. Konami just did a great job of making the content on the screen at the highest possible resolution.
Maybe you disagree with my pick, and maybe you don’t like that I have picked the most recent games on the market, but I love playing new games. New games have better graphics and better gameplay. If you have a different list of best games for Xbox One, then please write down your list in the comments below, and I will take a look and test some of your games that I didn’t yet play.
