In the wake of the massive blockbuster title, Quantum Break, two smaller games have also launched on the Xbox One console this week, DiRT Rally and Steredenn.
DiRT Rally is a racing game that features tracks in a variety of locations and conditions such as snow, tarmac, and dirt and also boast the inclusion of officially licensed World Rallycross content in the form of exclusive cars. Here’s the official description:
DiRT Rally is the most authentic and thrilling rally game ever made, road-tested over 80 million miles by the DiRT community. It perfectly captures that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge as you hurtle along dangerous roads at breakneck speed, knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time. Every stage tests you differently, as you race on the edge of control across snow, ice, tarmac and dirt and tackle a variety of weather types. As the car suffers attrition and stages string together, your dedicated rally team tries to keep you competitive and each rally becomes a marathon-like test of concentration and skill.
Steredenn is equally fast-paced but is a shooter instead of a racer. The game is set in a science fiction outer space setting and features boss battles, randomly-generated levels, and leaderboards to compete with friends. Here’s the official description:
Steredenn is a frenetic and chaotic space shooter, carved in big beautiful pixels, with insane boss battles. Embark in your ship and engage the fight against dreadful space pirates in a never-ending combat for your survival. Steredenn is at the crossroads between a shmup and a rogue-like. Enjoy the infinite replayability of the game with its unforgiving gameplay, intense boss fights, (almost) randomly generated environments, twisted space events and a surprisingly large arsenal of weapons
