This week is looking to shape up to be one of the best weeks so far this year for new Xbox games. We’ve got the brand new Injustice 2, sci-fi melee game The Surge, and the long awaited sequel, Shadow Warrior 2.
Let’s start off with the heavy hitters. Injustice 2 has got to be one of the most anticipated games this year, and since May 19, it has been readily available on the Xbox games store. The new Injustice 2 features plenty of new gameplay mechanics, including a brand new gear system.
Injustice 2 also has a total of 29 playable characters, some returning from the original game, some new to the franchise.
Next up we have The Surge, which also looks to be a pretty heavy hitting title. The Surge focuses on melee combat in a sci-fi styled post apocalyptic world. As you play through The Surge, you’ll be able to loot new gear and equip yourself with better weapons.
Shadow Warrior 2 is next up on the list for this week’s releases. This is one of the most unique first person shooter franchises in history, so we’re excited to see the sequel hit Xbox One.
