Microsoft’s Xbox One S is currently seeing a surge in popularity like never before. The Xbox One S is now the best-selling console in the United States above its main competitor, the PlayStation 4 Pro by Sony.
Despite offering virtual reality gaming with its PlayStation VR system, players seem to prefer the consistency, variety, and affordability provided by Microsoft on its signature last-gen console.
One of the main features to choose the Xbox One S over PlayStation 4 Pro is its extensive game catalog and enticing exclusive titles. Below, we have compiled the best games currently available only for the Xbox One S.
1. Halo: The Master Chief Collection – 343 Industries ($49.99)
If you have somehow missed out on playing the legendary titles of the ‘Halo’ franchise, look no further. 343 Industries offers an exclusive 4-in-1 bundle disc that packs ‘Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary,’ ‘Halo 2,’ ‘Halo 3,’ and ‘Halo 4’.’
On top of this, the bundle includes the original live-action series ‘Halo: Nightfall,’ starring Mike Colter of Netflix’s ‘Luke Cage’ and produced by Ridley Scott. The four-title pack is ‘the essential Halo experience’ in Xbox One S.
2. Gears of War 4 – The Coalition ($59.99)
A no-brainer, ‘Gears of War 4’ is the latest game in the massively popular third-person shooter franchise and the first title of the series developed by The Coalition instead of Epic Games.
‘Gears of War 4’ takes place 25 years after the events in ‘Gears of War 3’ and it is packed with new and old characters, enemies, weapons, and epic action in typical ‘Gears’ fashion.
3. Sunset Overdrive – Insomniac Games ($39.99)
‘Sunset Overdrive’ is perhaps the most unusual entry in this list, and by unusual we mean awesome. Crazy weapons, parkour-like acrobatics, and zany in-game navigation are part of what makes this title an instant Xbox One S classic.
The eclectic adventure is set in the open world environment of Sunset City. Mutants are taking over the metropolis and players have to team up and use their insane abilities to try to stop them and escape.
4. Forza Horizon 3 – Turn 10 ($59.99)
A simple concept well executed can become a remarkably immersive experience, and that is exactly what ‘Forza Horizon 3’ delivers with its open world racing game.
A total of 350 different vehicles is available to players who wish to cruise the never-ending roads of the Australian Outback, Byron Bay, Yarra Valley, and Surfers Paradise. Drivers can also team up to just roam around the massive world map.
5. Titanfall – Respawn Entertainment ($11.99)
‘Titanfall’ is a next-generation first-person shooter that introduces unique in-game mechanics to deliver an exciting multiplayer experience.
Up to 50 players can take part of a single battle piloting mechs with different abilities and weapons depending on their class.
There is a broad range of multiplayer modes as well as a single-player campaign. If that is not enough, ‘Titanfall 2’ is already out for PS4, PC, and Xbox One S.
