OlliOlli 2: XL Edition
The iconic skater is going all green-screen with a stunning new look, plucking you from the street and dropping you squarely in the middle of the big screen’s most bodacious cinematic locations.
Play with friends in ‘Combo-Rush’, a local-multiplayer mode for 2-4 players. OlliOlli2: XL Edition introduces the brand-new Free-Skate mode; extended, chilled levels to learn the ropes, nail those Expert tricks, or simply cruise and flow like never before.
Rise and Shine
Welcome to Gamearth, a once peaceful planet now threatened by the warmongering Space Grunts of Nexgen. In the aftermath of their devastating first strike a child named Rise is forced to take on the sacred gun Shine – and with it the fate of his world. Rise & Shine is a true “think and gun” that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine’s add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do. Guide projectiles through intricate mazes, electrify damaged equipment to discover new pathways, and juggle 8-bit fruit because why not? It’s going to take all you’ve got to stay alive in the face of lethal robot armadas, enormous bosses, giant death wheels, and (of course) brainthirsty zombies. Oh, and did we mention the graphics? Each level is composed of hand drawn illustrations with multiple parallax scroll layers so every forward step is new. No tiling or repeated elements; each level is one, continuous work of art.
Sheltered is a deep and emotional survival & post-apocalyptic disaster management game.
After a global apocalypse, a frightened family find their way to a deserted shelter, where they try to survive. You take on the role of protecting four family members. Their wellbeing and survival is your responsibility. One mistake, one bad decision and a loved one is gone, forever. Sheltered is a world where death is permanent.
Combat claustrophobia, radiation and mental exhaustion as you try to turn the cold and cramped Shelter into a home. And as they cling desperately to life, you must send family members from the scant protection of the shelter, outside into the dangerous, desolate wasteland to scavenge for vital supplies. You’ll come across abandoned towns, roaming factions and feral beasts.
How you handle the many moral choices you’ll encounter could be the difference between the family surviving or dying. It seems a waste to bury a body when the rest of the family is so hungry.
Sniper Elite 4
Set in the breathtaking landscapes of Italy in 1943, Sniper Elite 4 combines genre-defining ballistics, breathless emergent stealth and gripping third-person action across the largest and most diverse environments ever seen in the series. Fight to free Italy from the yoke of Fascism and experience unrivalled sniping freedom in the first Sniper Elite title built from the ground up for Xbox One.
Of course, these are just the base games that are being offered up but if you like it enough you can score 20% off the base game and 10% off DLC while the game is part of the Xbox Game Pass.
