Top Upcoming Xbox One Games in 2019

Civilization 6: Gathering Storm
  • Developer: Firaxis Games
  • Publisher: 2K Games
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: February 14, 2019

If you already own a copy of Civilization VI then you may want to take note of the upcoming second expansion pack known as Gathering Storm. This expansion will be adding an assortment of features, leaders, wonders, and civilizations. A  big focus with this expansion is all about weather elements being introduced to the game and as a result, players will have to deal with the various issues that will come up from it. For instance, players will soon have to plan for potential volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, to even droughts. All of these will play a role in how the game will play out for the last eras. However, as mentioned, there are some other notable elements being added into the game such as a new overhaul to diplomacy along to a variety of small little tweaks to the already established mechanics.

For those who are after more leaders, you’ll find that Gathering Storm will include a total of nine new characters with eight brand new civilizations. These will also come with two new scenarios which will deal with The Black Death pandemic and the WWI German-French conflict in Belgium. Currently, this game is slated to release on February 14, 2019.

  • Developer: BioWare
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Developers BioWare has brought out a number of great selling RPG titles over the years. This includes the Mass Effect franchise, though with that series seemingly wrapped up for now, we may have the next big science fiction RPG from them this coming year.

Anthem was suppose to see a release in 2018 but has since been pushed back for a release at some point this coming year, 2019. The video game is set on a world in which humanity seeks refuge behind walls as monstrous aliens lurk outside. Players will step into the shoes of a Freelancer, a member of an organization that explores the open world beyond the wall.

However, in order for players to roam around the outside world they’ll have to put on a Javelin. These are military graded suits that can not only take a beating but likely deliver a powerful punch if the occasion should arise.

  • Developer: Crea-ture Studios
  • Publisher: Crea-ture Studios
  • Platforms: PC, XBO
  • Release: 2019

If you enjoyed the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series and find the latest Skateboarding game to lose the charm of what made those early Pro Skater titles fun then you’re in luck. Session is a brand new skateboarding-based IP from developers Crea-ture Studios.

Within the video game, players are focused mainly on mastering new tricks and combos as they go through the different maps. As a result, gameplay seems to be more inspired by the late 1990s Tony Hawk Pro Skater video game installments rather than placing a narrative journey for players to go through.

The Blackout Club
  • Developer: Question
  • Publisher: Question
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

From development studio Question comes The Blackout Club, a video game horror title with an emphasis on cooperative gameplay. Within the game, players take the role of young teenagers who have been dealing with random blackout incidents.

Within the town, kids are susceptible to blacking out and waking up in a random spot with no memory of what happened. Furthermore, the adults within the town refuse to believe there are incidents happening so players must band together and gather proof of this strange supernatural-like event.

Dirt Rally 2.0
  • Developer: Codemasters
  • Publisher: Codemasters
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: February 26, 2019

Dirt Rally is developers Codemasters overall revised installment to the Rally series. Essentially, Dirt Rally morphed from the Colin McRae Rally series which first came out in 1998. Within the game, players will race in a variety of off-road terrain tracks on tracks set all over the world. Likewise, select tracks may have various weather conditions that could alter the overall feel of the vehicle you’re racing with. There is a total of seventy different cars to choose from and over thirty stages.

Now since Dirt Rally has released, Codemasters has returned to give players a brand new experience with Dirt Rally 2.0. Just as before, players will be receiving a realistic physics racing experience but now with a new weather system. It seems that weather conditions will not only play a role in how the car handles on the track but your visibility of the road. Currently, the game will release with a total of fifty cars to choose from and eight circuits from the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
