Xbox One Stealth Games You Need To Play

#10 Assassin’s Creed Origins
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 27, 2017

Assassin’s Creed Origins is the latest installment within the Assassin’s Creed series. Players are taken to the end of the Ptolemaic period in Egypt as they witness the origins of the conflict that is the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order.

Being an Assassin’s Creed game, you can expect a heavy emphasis on stealth and because this latest title has a big open world and several quests, players will be able to put good use in their sneaking around abilities.


#9 Hitman 2
  • Developer: IO Interactive
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: November 13, 2018

If you enjoyed the Hitman video game release back in 2016 then you won’t want to miss out on its sequel. Hitman 2 will continue on with the narrative journey left off in the previous installment. Players will once again step into the role of Agent 47 where he will be taking on contracts and killing off the designated targets. However, the overall goal in Agent 47’s mind is taking out the Shadow Client from the previous video game storyline.

There is also another change up from the past title and that this time around players will not have to deal with an episodic release. Unlike Hitman, Hitman 2 had a standard video game launch with the entire game being available right from its release. However, the game will still be supported post-release as developers IO Interactive will be delivering DLC expansions. Gameplay will still be the same where Agent 47 will have to blend into his environment in order to stealthily take down his target.


#8 Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Much like the previous Assassin’s Creed installments, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will feature a modern day protagonist as well. Ubisoft will be reintroducing players to Layla Hassan who was present during Assassin’s Creed Origins.

There will also be an RPG progression system included in the game as well where players can adjust their character skills and attributes. Likewise, with a branching dialogue system, your narrative journey may offer a unique ending thus giving players an incentive in going back and replaying the game. Likewise, just as the previous installments, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will feature a stealth element to keep away from enemies and bounty hunters after your head.
