Many of them are also included in Xbox Game Pass, allowing you to try out the top titles without having to spend $60 continuously. Don't worry if you already upgraded to the Xbox Series X; Microsoft's Smart Delivery programme makes the great majority of Xbox One titles compatible with both the Series X and Series S.
Here are the top Xbox One games, which range from the concrete walls of the Federal Bureau of Control to the alpine mountains of Valhalla.
The great Titanfall series was created by Respawn Entertainment, which also created the squad-based battle royale game Apex Legends. Apex Legends is a welcome addition to the battle royale genre, even though it lacks the Titans and the fantastic wall running. The 60-player structure divides competitors into three-person teams, with each competition selecting from a selection of legends with distinctive skills. The nonverbal communication mechanism in Apex Legends is the greatest we've seen in a multiplayer game. To keep your colleagues updated, you can use the ping system to identify weapons, foes, and other interesting locations.
You don't even need to use a microphone. So excellent. The expansive sci-fi map is chock full of small nuances and surprises. Thanks to a wide range of weapons and a tonne of creative attachments, the gunplay is just as impressive as Titanfall and feels fantastic in the battle royale setting. Additionally, in contrast to other battle royale games, you can revive teammates after some recon work. What makes Apex Legends so great? It is a free-to-play game, and none of the in-game purchases provide you an advantage over other players.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a fantastic game on Xbox One, but it performs even better on the more powerful Xbox Series X (plus it supports Smart Delivery, so you can obtain the Series X version when you upgrade). It's clear that Valhalla is among the best Assassin's Creed games ever created after just a few brief hours spent playing the game. The game is a demonstration of the capabilities of the AnvilNext 2.0 engine from Ubisoft, with developer Ubisoft Montreal pushing the technology to its limits.
However, more than simply the sights catch the eye. The open-world idea from Origins and Odyssey is still there in Valhalla, although the world feels denser in comparison. Valhalla also increases the ferocity of combat engagements, making every thrust of your mace or sword feel more powerful than ever. Valhalla is, in many respects, to Odyssey and Origins what Black Flag was to the original Assassin's Creed games: a comfortable experience with just enough nuance to matter.
Like a Dragon: Ishin!
Like a Dragon: Ishin! is a good restoration of an older game in the Yakuza series that was previously unpublished in the West. Like a Dragon: Ishin maintains the series' hallmark narrative characteristics despite taking place in a time of intense political unrest in Japan. Although the gameplay feels a little more old, people who have played the other games in this series will be accustomed to it.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty
Check out Team Ninja's Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty if you're searching for a new Soulslike fix this year. A faster-paced Soulslike game set in China's Yellow Turban Rebellion is the next offering from the Nioh series' creators. Although it doesn't completely reinvent the genre like Elden Ring did, it's still a good game that will appeal to players that prefer their Soulslikes to be a little faster.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
For Xbox 360 online first-person shooters, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its sequel Modern Warfare 2 set the standard. The competitive multiplayer kept the disc in gamers' consoles for years, while the intense single-player campaigns unfolded like a blockbuster movie. With the 2019 relaunch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward made a comeback to the subseries with a game that knew what players enjoyed about the original game without feeling constrained by its past.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, the follow-up to that reboot, raises the bar in every way. The advertising looks better than ever before and is bigger and more varied. This is one of the series' tightest, most straightforward, and most engrossing multiplayer editions in recent memory.
