Here are our favorite picks for the best Xbox One games of 2018:
Red Dead Redemption 2
Whether it’s looks, or story, or characters, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a work of art. It’s an impactful story of loyalty and trust, of murder and betrayal, set against a beautiful but unforgiving environment in the Wild West days. Some gameplay issues notwithstanding, it’s seriously hard to overstate what an amazing job Rockstar has done with this title.
Forza Horizon 4 Forza Horizon 4’s take on the United Kingdom landscape is a breathtaking one. The open terrain, dynamic weather and the change of seasons all culminate in a memorable experience, making it the best racing game to come out this year.
State of Decay 2
If you’re a fan of systems driven gameplay, State of Decay 2 is for you. Minor launch issues aside, this is one of the best zombie survival games in the market right now, and I can’t wait to see what the team at Undead Labs does next.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Call of Duty has made a triumphant comeback, with boots on the ground multiplayer and Blackout is easily the best Battle Royale mode around right now.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
For the first time, there’s a female protagonist featured throughout an Assassin’s Creed title. It is set 400 years prior to Origins, where you get to play as a mercenary, exploring Ancient Greece as you fight your way to glory. Find the secrets that bind your family, take down a mysterious cult and become the best mercenary you can be.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Lara Croft is back, and this time she’s brought the apocalypse with her. After accidentally starting the end of the world, Lara now has to track down the notorious Trinity organization to make sure they don’t get their hands on the artifacts that have the power to reshape the world.
Battlefield V is a pretty enjoyable Battlefield game. Though it no longer retains the same strategic depth as Battlefield 3 & 4, it is definitely a big step up from Battlefield 1. There are some standout maps, the weapons feels great, and the game is a delight to look at.
Everyone’s favourite assassin is back with a vengeance. Not to spoil too much, but did you know you can kill people by placing a rake in their path? It’s genius, really. Also, to no one’s surprise, the first elusive target is none other than Sean Bean, so fun times galore.
PUBG took over the world by storm last year, and has become a game-changing phenomenon. Folks across the globe have been infected by the PUBG fever, and it has exposed more people to the joys of playing with friends than any other game ever did.
Just Cause 4
Just Cause returns with it’s well established formula of utter chaos and destruction. The Apex engine still shines at showing massive draw distances, and physics and all-out explosive action.
