New Xbox Releases: Week Beginning July 2nd, 2018

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
After a busy couple of weeks, things are calming down again and it looks like we're about to enter a quieter summer period. This week brings seven new titles to Xbox One and one to Windows 10. At retail, there's a remaster of Red Faction Guerrilla. Digitally there's another ACA NEOGEO title, and ID@Xbox brings the remaining five titles (one of which is gracing Windows 10 too), namely the final chapter of The Journey Down, cardboard boxes in a fight to the death, an arcade racer, a bid to retrieve the gnome monarch’s castle, and a fantasy RPG involving four companions and a cat. For more information on each title, check out the list below, and scroll to the bottom for prices and download links:

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered

Release date: July 3rd
Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla re-defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

Asdivine Hearts

Release date: July 6th
Travel alongside four companions and a cat in a fantasy RPG featuring stunning animated turn-based battles!

One year ago, the world of Asdivine was enveloped by a brilliant flash of light. Since that time, the influence of shadow has only continued to grow ever more powerful across the face of the land. Although the event itself was undoubtedly connected with the heavens, few people seem to have realized the far-reaching implications of what transpired. Now turning to the present, a surprising revelation awaits a young man, Zack, and his childhood friend, Stella, in the capital from a chubby cat claiming to be none other than the Light Deity and declaring the world to be on the verge of destruction...

Asdivine Hearts boasts of plenty of subquests, a battle arena, treasure to dig for, and an enemy guide to complete. By setting puzzle piece-like jewels in a box known as a rubix, players are able to customize characters! How far can you level and how many millions of damage can you dish out?
