It’s another slow month for new games on Xbox One.
Between the typical summer doldrums and the impending launch of the Xbox Series X, it’s an incredibly slow time for the Xbox One. Hopefully you’ve got a lengthy backlog of games to play and keep you distracted as social distancing ramps back up again because there’s not much new coming to the Xbox One this month.
While the PlayStation is getting Marvel’s Iron Man VR and Ghost of Tsushima, while also enjoying The Last of Us Part II, the Xbox One has, well, not much. Check out the list of new games coming to the console in July:
- CrossCode – July 9
- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 – July 10
- F1 2020 – July 10
- NASCAR Heat 5 – July 10
- Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris – July 10
- Rocket Arena – July 14
- Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break – July 21
- Destroy All Humans! – July 28
We’ve got a few racing games for fans of the sport. The most intriguing title for me is Rocket Arena.
Revealed during EA Play in June, Rocket Arena is an “action-fueled” 3v3 shooter. The game offers an assortment of heroes to play as, each with unique abilities and playstyles as well as their own signature rockets. The dynamic arenas seem interesting enough. Overall, it just looks like a fun arena shooter that can hopefully provide us with a few weeks of entertainment.
Beyond Rocket Arena, the most exciting thing for Xbox owners to looking forward to is probably the Xbox Series X showcase Microsoft has planned for July. As previously announced, the showcase this month will focus specifically on titles from Xbox Game Studios, which means we’ll get to see more of Halo: Infinite, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Grounded, Froza, Everwild and whatever other surprises these developers have in store for us.
July may be a slow month for Xbox but it contains the promise of a bright future on Xbox Series X. For that, I look forward to what this month has to offer.
