Two new video games are out today on the Xbox One, Elite Dangerous: Arena Edition and Battle Worlds: Kronos.
Elite Dangerous: Arena Edition is a Science Fiction flying action game with online multiplayer elements and player versus player battles. Players do need to sign up for a free Elite Dangerous account with Frontier and have Xbox Live Gold to play but neither should be too inconvenient for most Xbox One owners. Here’s the official description:
Fly agile fighters and go head-to-head against the galaxy’s greatest pilots in PVP dogfights – easy to pick up controls reward your developing skills with more to master for that ultimate combat edge. Choose your ship, customize your load out and prepare for instant Arena-based action to earn the right to become Elite. Elite Dangerous: Arena brings Elite Dangerous’ Close Quarter Combat (CQC) PVP game to players as a standalone release, featuring full cross-compatibility with the large and growing Elite Dangerous player community.
Battle Worlds: Kronos is a turn-based top-down strategy game which tasks the player with controlling a variety of ground, naval, and airborne military units that can be upgraded and customized for a more challenging and rewarding session. Here’s the official description:
Strong opponents, long playtime – Prepare to fight epic battles against tough AI enemies in three huge campaigns, with over 60 hours of gameplay. Includes the full DLC-campaign “Trains”!
An epic war from two perspectives – Experience the two sides of a battle while making use of multiple combat styles, from dominating a civilization with epic tactical warfare, to saving your planet from superior military forces with clever guerilla tactics
The Xbox One video games library continues to grow on an almost daily basis. Earlier today, Ubisoft released a three-pack of their most-recent Assassin’s Creed titles, and the Gears of War 4 open beta is getting console owners hyped for that title’s future release.
