XBox: The Official Magazine - - GAME OF THE YEAR AWARDS -

Fort­nite

The game that most cap­tured 2018’s gamer zeit­geist. The freeto-play Bat­tle Royale is not only bril­liant, it’s had game pub­lish­ers scrab­bling to put a BR mode into their own games. Pub Epic Games / Dev Epic Games

FIFA 19

The best foot­ball game this year, with im­prove­ments to the ac­tual in-match game­play fi­nally equalling its wealth of modes. And of course there are those all-im­por­tant li­cences to con­sider too. Pub EA / Dev EA

Laser League

It’s a neon-lit, top-down sports sim­u­la­tor that pits two teams in a se­ries of game modes where you use laser nodes to cre­ate walls of coloured death. It’s Tron with a splash of NFLBlitz, and it’s fab. Pub 505 / dev Roll7
