The games we want the most

XBox: The Official Magazine - - PREVIEW -

Wait­ing is never easy, but it’s even harder when it’s the big­gest and most pop­u­lar new shooter ever and it’s been ‘com­ing soon’ to Xbox for what feels like an eter­nity. We’ve been en­vi­ously watch­ing PC play­ers of Play­erUn­known’s Bat­tle­grounds (p22) for a while now, but our wait re­ally is al­most over this time with pad con­trols sorted, and key­board and mouse sup­port for the Xbox One on its way. It’s so close that we’ve been prac­tis­ing our for­ag­ing skills by search­ing for dirty clothes in aban­doned ware­houses. That’s to­tally safe, right? Speak­ing of ques­tion­able life­style choices, The Sims 4 (p26) is also al­most here on Xbox to sat­isfy all of your bul­ly­ing and ‘woohoo’ needs. There’s noth­ing quite like build­ing a de­press­ing hovel for your Sims to help with stress re­lief. If hav­ing all-con­sum­ing power over the lives of oth­ers doesn’t do it for you, then maybe a look at some gi­ant troll-slay­ing will. Say hello to Ex­tinc­tion (p34) which will have you zip­ping up gi­ant beats and lop­ping their limbs off. Lovely. Fi­nally we have a mas­sive info splurge on our most an­tic­i­pated game of 2018: Red Dead Re­demp­tion 2 (p38) and it’s look­ing ev­ery bit like the mas­ter­piece we’re wait­ing for. We can’t wait to play as cow­boys just roam­ing the vast wilder­ness of Amer­ica while threat­en­ing mur­der to ex­tort money. ...What? Don’t judge our hob­bies.
