Top 20 New Xbox One Games Coming in 2020

Looking to increase your library of Xbox One video game titles? There are a number of great titles already slated to launch within the upcoming year. We’ve listed down some of our most anticipated video games releasing on the platform within 2020. Check out our picks below and continue to check back for any future updates and additions.

#20 Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, XSX, PS5,
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

There is a big fan base for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Over the years the games continued to bring out new eras to enjoy, characters to take the role of, and an interesting take on some historical events. Unfortunately, the game franchise was put on ice for a year after the release of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Now that we’re through 2019 and into 2020, we can expect to dive back into another Assassin’s Creed epic. At some point later this year we should be getting a copy of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

This time around, players will take the role of a Viking leader on expansion. As you move into Europe there is be the biggest possible force to battle against yet. We’re still waiting for more information to come out but it looks like this game will involve Norse mythology and plenty of exploration, much like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. There’s also a new settlement feature in which players can build up a base and make various upgrades that will play a role in the gameplay aspect.

One of the features so far that we know will be tweaked is the leveling system. If you recall in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, there was a level recommendation to progress making it difficult to complete missions. This resulted in players having to complete side quests to gain XP. That will no longer be the case as the developers will allow you to progress through the campaign fully if you rather not complete any side content.

#19 Minecraft Dungeons
  • Developer: Mojang
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: XBO, PC, NS, PS4
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online Only 4 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Mojang, best known for their release of Minecraft, has a new upcoming title known as Minecraft Dungeons. This is a different style of Minecraft game as players can’t build or craft, but instead will play the title as a dungeon crawler. Players will explore randomly-generated dungeons and defeat monsters, solve puzzles and locate treasures. While the game can be enjoyed alone, it’s best played with a group of friends with a total of four players embarking the journey.

#18 Call of Duty: Warzone

  • Developer: Infinity Ward, Raven Software
  • Publisher: Activision
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: March 10, 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Online

Call of Duty has been an iconic FPS for years. Players that enjoy this franchise tend to pick up copies with the purpose of jumping online and enjoying some competitive gameplay. In fact, this reason alone was enough to warrant Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to drop a campaign altogether. While some fans may not be interested in jumping from installment to installment in order to keep up with finding active matches, one particular installment may be around a bit longer than the others and that’s Call of Duty: Warzone.

This video game started out as a battle royale game mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but the development team opted to make it free for everyone. Players can enjoy this game on current-generation platforms, outside of Nintendo Switch, completely for free. There is a small catch for Xbox One users and that’s the fact you’ll still need an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Overall, this is very much a traditional battle royale game mode in which players are either paired up in squads or solos. From there, you drop down into a massive map with the hopes of being the last man or team standing. During the game, you’ll have to scavenge for guns, ammo, and other resources that may help you reach further into the match against opposing players.

#17 Tales of Arise

  • Developer: Bandai Namco Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

A new Tales installment is in the works for 2020. Tales of Arise is a brand new journey from Bandai Namco Studios. Players will follow a story that revolves around two worlds, one that is set in a medieval time while the other has quickly advanced with technology. So far, we know that the two main protagonists will come from each world, but we’re still waiting to hear more about the premise of this upcoming title.

Regardless, if you’re a fan of the Tales games you’ll find that nothing drastic has changed. You’ll still find that the game will feature a variety of locations to explore, a unique cast of characters to interact with and the classic Linear Motion Battle System. It’s a system that acts similar to an action RPG where players will be able to move freely to attack while building up various gauges to use more powerful attacks at an enemy.

#16 Remothered: Broken Porcelain

  • Developer: Stormind Games
  • Publisher: Darril Arts, Modus Games
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Another creepy installment to the Remothered franchise is making its way into the market next year. Remothered: Broken Porcelain was given a small little tease during Gamescom where we got the first bits of information such as the game looking to take place in a somewhat period piece.

Just like the previous installment, Remothered: Tormented Fathers, Remothered: Broken Porcelain is a survival horror video game so you can expect an emphasis on lore, puzzles and making use of stealth tactics as you progress through the narrative. Furthermore, this game is set to take place in a location called Ashmann Inn where stalkers and hunters trapped in another time roam the homestead.
