Sunset Overdrive

From Insomniac Games (Ratchet and Clank series, Resistance), comes Sunset Overdrive – a cartoon-inspired adventure game exclusive to Xbox One.

The trailer appears to show that the game features strong elements of free-running, traversal, gun combat and over-the-top gore.

Killer Instinct

One of the surprising reveals was that of Killer Instinct – a reboot of the series coming exclusively to Xbox One

The game only got a brief trailer, but it shows that the bloody and often insane battles and characters will return.

Ryse: Son of Rome

Ryse, which was once an Xbox 360 game, has received a full trailer, highlighting that it is now an Xbox One launch title.

Developed by renowned studio Crytek, Ryse: Son of Rome is an immersive action-adventure story of struggle, brutality, and heroism. It follows a fearless Roman soldier named Marius Titus who joins the army to avenge the slaying of his family and emerges as a hero who must fight to save the Roman Empire.

Minecraft Xbox One Edition

Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will release within the Xbox One’s launch window and bring a bunch of blocky new features to the next-gen.

Building off the hugely successful Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, the edition on Xbox One will give players larger maps for bigger adventures, expanded multiplayer features, and feature enhancements powered by the Xbox One platform.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The much-anticipated Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has now been confirmed to be coming to Xbox One, alongside PS4 and PC, and the announcement was accompanied by a shiny new trailer.

The game has been confirmed to be a PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360 exclusive, and is a fast-paced multiplayer first-person action game, which also features heavily armoured titans, which the players can pilot in order to get an advantage on the battlefield.
