The Xbox One is not having that range of exclusives as the PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch, but it still has a large library of games to play. Starting from shooters and racing games, fans of those genres needn’t look any further than the Xbox, and there’s also a number of great platformers you may not find on any other console.
If you are looking for a lengthy single-player game with a great story or an online world to enjoy with your friends, there is always something for you.
1. Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice
The legendary studio created an entirely new franchise with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. This is an action game that takes inspiration from Dark Souls and also as Bloodborne games. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is quite difficult, which could turn off from Software newcomers. If you have the time and patience to battle through its boss fights you will also be rewarded with one of the most rewarding and addicting action games of the millennium.
2. Devil May Cry 5
As a sequel of DmC: Devil May Cry back in 2013, this new series returns with Devil May Cry 5. Based on the events of the four other games, Devil May Cry 5 have three different characters, each with their own weapons and potential to master. In this game, Nero’s brutality is contrasted by Dante’s flashiness, and both are quite different from V’s demon-spawning style.
Devil May Cry 5 appears to be the perfect fusion of old and new, with an excellent engine making it one of the choicest games on the Xbox One. It has retained the series’ challenge, however, and a second run on “Son of Sparda” blends the enemy variety in order to put your skills to the test.
This is an action role-playing game from New Zealand studio A44 which is set in a low fantasy environment. Although the excellent action-role-playing game Bloodborne isn’t available on the Xbox One, Microsoft’s players can get to play this Souls-like game in the form of Ashen. Like the best games in the genre, Ashen compels you to think tactically as they approach situations and carefully choose their attacks to avoid being overwhelmed. You must preserve your stamina to play this game as the game’s dreary and gray color scheme only sets you to kill. It supports “passive” multiplayer, where you can opt to cooperate with other players or force them to continue alone.
4. Gears of War (Series)
The original three games and prequel Judgment can be played on Xbox One through backward compatibility, and the first game is also recreated as Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for the system.
This updated Gears of War experience on Xbox One, Gears of War 4 offers you a gripping and horror-based campaign that gets back to Epic’s earlier work, along with a well-balanced competitive multiplayer mode that makes this series at its very best.
5. Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition
With infamous releases of Diablo III, the game was hit with severe server issues and serious gameplay flaws. Again this game was revamped through a number of patches and one full-blown expansion. It released the game on a console that can support up to four players in co-op.
The result is a harsh and supercharged action-RPG that’s a great experience to play with buddies on a couch or online. Although other RPGs have a better story and better graphics, Diablo 3 is a stress reliever. You can obliterate some demons, and watch your numbers shoot into the stratosphere.
6. Dark Souls III
Inspired by Bloodborne, the studio’s PlayStation 4 exclusive, Dark Souls III is an addition to the Souls series’ distinctive tough-as-nails fight, without sacrificing the features that made fans fall in love with the franchise.
The series of killing enemies, trading in their souls to upgrade your character will keep you glued to your console for many hours at a time. You can invite your friend to join you at any time in this fray.
It is tough to find any another game in the Dark Souls series from the mastermind Hidetaka Miyazaki. It’s the genius mind to create such a piece of art, and a great example of how to make a franchise successful without sacrificing the “hardcore” gameplay elements.
These are the top Xbox One games that you must have today to have a great time playing uninterrupted for hours.
