LA Noire

Pub­lisher Rock­star Games de­vel­oper Team Bondi due 14 Novem­ber

It’s been six whole years since for­mer marine of­fi­cer, now top de­tec­tive, Cole Phelps saun­tered into our lives with a gun, a note­book and some se­ri­ously im­pres­sive fa­cial an­i­ma­tions. Now, he and his 1940s cop bud­dies are back head­ing to Xbox One with a re­mas­ter. The new ver­sion has en­hanced light­ing, hi-res tex­tures and many a cin­e­matic view­ing an­gle.

Hello Neigh­bor

Pub­lisher tinyBuild de­vel­oper Dy­namic Pix­els due 8 De­cem­ber

Ever won­dered if that weird neigh­bour of yours might ac­tu­ally be hid­ing a prop­erly nasty se­cret? That’s the con­cept at the dark heart of this stealth-ori­en­tated af­fair, as you sneak your way into the home of a man who is a po­ten­tial lu­natic. The game uses an ad­vanced AI that sets traps and pa­trols based on your pre­vi­ous move­ments, and it looks to be a lot of fun.

Gravel

Pub­lisher Mile­stone de­vel­oper Mile­stone due Q1 2018

Ital­ian stu­dio Mile­stone is no stranger to dirty rac­ing (it’s got a tril­ogy of MXGP games and Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo al­ready un­der its belt, af­ter all), and now it’s turned its at­ten­tion to full-on off-road may­hem with

Gravel. The game will fea­ture 50 ve­hi­cles (from Porsches to mon­ster trucks) and has 18 lo­ca­tions with ral­ly­cross, sta­di­ums and more open track de­signs.

Trans­fer­ence

Pub­lisher Ubisoft de­vel­oper Spec­treVi­sion/Ubisoft Mon­treal due Spring 2018

Turns out re­laps­ing hob­bit Eli­jah Wood isn’t just star­ring in games these days - he’s help­ing make them too. His new project was one of the big­gest sur­prises of E3 2017, a trippy, Black Mir­ror- es­que ex­pe­ri­ence built with VR in mind. Best of all, it’s go­ing to be com­ing to Xbox One next year, so pre­pare to be freaked out.

Steep: Road To The Ol ympics

Pub­lisher Ubisoft de­vel­oper Ubisoft An­necy due 5 De­cem­ber

Ahead of the Win­ter Olympics in Pyeong-Chang next year, the crim­i­nally un­der­rated ex­treme sports sim is get­ting a full-on ex­pan­sion to cel­e­brate. You’ll get to carve pow­der and hur­tle through the air in new Ja­panese and South Korean moun­tains, as well as plenty of new events in­clud­ing Down­hill, Slopestyle, Half­pipe, Gi­ant Slalom, Su­per G and Big Air.

Va mpyr

Pub­lisher Fo­cus Home In­ter­ac­tive de­vel­oper Dontnod En­ter­tain­ment due Novem­ber

While you can choose to play most of Vampyr with­out tak­ing a sin­gle life, in­dulging your blood lust will un­lock some im­pres­sive new di­men­sions to com­bat. Your up­grade­able vam­piric pow­ers will in­clude the abil­ity to im­pale your poor foes on spikes and drain them of blood from a dis­tance. Who says dead peo­ple can’t have fun?
