Sherlock HolmesSherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments – Xbox One

March 1-31 (12.45 GB)

His skills, your wits: become Sherlock Holmes! You are Sherlock Holmes! Use your impressive talents as a detective to solve six thrilling and varied cases: murders, missing persons, spectacular thefts and numerous investigations that sometimes lead you into the realms of the fantastic. The great freedom of action in Crimes & Punishments allows you to conduct your investigations in the manner you deem appropriate. Choose the leads you wish to pursue, interrogate your suspects and, from your deductions, name the guilty parties… and determine their fate wisely, as surprising consequences may arise where you least expect them.



Lords of the Fallen

Lords of the Fallen – Xbox One

March 16 – April 15 (5.95 GB)

In the Time of the Ancients, the Worldly Realm was ruled by a God of pure evil, who enslaved all humankind under his Dominion. But fear turned to anger as rebellion grew in the hearts of men – until the dawn of the Great Rising, when the fight for freedom began. After a glorious victory that cast aside the Fallen God, humans dictated a new order… a world where no sin can ever be forgiven and redemption was not an option.

Now, millennia later, the world trembles in fear as the Demonic Rhogar Legion returns from their dark realm, driven by a foul hunger for innocent spirits. Humanity, in a desperate last act, calls upon an unlikely defender – a convicted sinner, rejected by society and cast out of the light… a man known as Harkyn. Now, alongside his mentor, Kaslo, they must travel to the source of the Darkness… to face the Lords of the Fallen.

Plunge into a fast paced action RPG with a complex and satisfying melee combat system where weapons, armor and skills directly influence the enemy’s speed and attacks… if all else fails, lay waste to your foes using forbidden magic power.


  • Embark on an Epic Quest that spans both human and demonic realms
  • Confront the mighty Lords, generals of the Rhogar army
  • Explore a vast dark fantasy world
  • Make your choices wisely as they may seal your fate
  • Wield legendary weapons and armors from a vast arsenal
  • Choose your class: Warrior, Cleric or Rogue and fully customize each with skills and weapons
