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 Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

  • Developer: Treyarch, Raven Software
  • Publisher: Activision
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX
  • Release: November 13, 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Online

The Call of Duty franchise is massive and it’s a series that has an annual release. As a result, we knew going into 2020 we would have a new Call of Duty game but fans were forced to wait and see just what this next game would be about or even what franchise it was going to attach itself. Using the hit battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone title, Activision had placed several clues and objectives for players to solve within the game in order for Call of Duty 2020 to be unveiled. At the end of this cat and mouse chase, players were given the reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. After the last Black Ops installment which scrapped the single-player campaign narrative, Treyarch and Raven Software have implemented a campaign storyline that will be considered a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops.

This video game installment will follow CIA officer Russell Adler as he’s tasked with tracking down a soviet spy only known as Perseus. Set in the Cold War, players will be taken to different parts of the world with nations on the edge of a nuclear war. Likewise, we’re going to see weapons used during the time period of the early 1980s and since this is a sequel to Black Ops, we’re also going to see some familiar faces such as Frank Woods. Right now we’re waiting on more information to come out regarding the multiplayer component of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, but we do expect some kind of evolution with Call of Duty: Warzone. There have been statements in the past that confirmed Call of Duty: Warzone would evolve with each new Call of Duty video game title and we’re sure that there is some kind of a play towards Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in place. We’re just not sure if that will mean a new map, weapons, or game modes.

#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 Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time

  • Developer: Toys for Bob
  • Publisher: Activision
  • Platforms: PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 2, 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

It’s been a long time since we had a mainline installment release for the Crash Bandicoot franchise but now later this year we will receive Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. This title follows after the events of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped where Dr. Cortex, N. Tropy, and Uka Uka, have found a way out from their imprisonment at the end of time and space. Now with all these villains that have emerged out from the imprisonment Crash Bandicoot and Coco are forced to stop these characters and restore order all over again. Just like with the past installments, this is a platform title but you can expect larger levels and bigger boss fights. Likewise, we’re also going to get a chance to play other characters in the game such as Dr. Cortex which should give an inside look at their personal view of the world.

#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.
