By Mark Delaney, 8 months ago
While E3 keeps us all busy in June, don't forget to make time for the next TA Playlist game. We've got an exciting slate of four fairly recent Xbox One games vying for the community spotlight in our next poll. What's more, we decided to do another themed poll, this time focusing on different subsections of science fiction: aliens, time travel, bioaugmentation, and robots. Which category gets your vote? As always, the poll will be open for one week. Check back soon for the results!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided


The year is 2029, and mechanically augmented humans have been deemed outcasts, segregated from the rest of society. Now an elite covert agent, Adam Jensen is forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind. Armed with an arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.

Prey (2017)

Good morning, Morgan. Today is Monday, March 15, 2032....

In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities.

Quantum Break

Quantum Break

In the aftermath of a split second of destruction that fractures time itself, two people find they have changed and gained extraordinary abilities. One of them travels through time and becomes hell-bent on controlling this power. The other uses these new abilities to attempt to defeat him – and fix time before it tears itself irreparably apart. Both face overwhelming odds and make dramatic choices that will determine the shape of the future

The Surge


Welcome to CREO, the megacorporation saving our world! A catastrophic event has knocked you out during the first day on the job… you wake up equipped with a heavy-grade exoskeleton, in a destroyed section of the complex. Robots gone haywire, insane augmented co-workers and rogue AI - everything wants you dead.
None of the four games have been part of Games with Gold nor are any featured in Xbox Game Pass at the time of writing. They've all been featured heavily in sales previously, though. Get your vote in this week and we'll reveal our next community game in seven days. In the meantime, join us for our ongoing playthrough of Alice: Madness Returns.
