New Xbox Releases: Week Beginning October 29th, 2018

By Rebecca Smith, 21 days ago
After the large number of retail releases last week, including a certain cowboy title, this week is far quieter for retail releases. At retail, players can choose to venture into a world inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, or they can revisit a LEGO world based on the works of J.K. Rowling. Alternatively, there's an ACA NEOGEO title, and ID@Xbox bring all seven of the remaining digital titles, including another visit to a garden filled with gnomes, beach volleyball, gem smashing, and a tale about two completely different parallel stories. For more information on each of those titles and more, check out the list below, and scroll to the bottom for prices and download links:

Call of Cthulhu

Release date: October 30th
Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame inspired by Chaosium's classic pen and paper RPG, brings you deep into a world of creeping madness and shrouded Old Gods within Lovecraft's iconic universe.

1924. Private Investigator Pierce is sent to look into the tragic death of the Hawkins family on the isolated Darkwater Island. Soon enough, Pierce is pulled into a terrifying world of conspiracies, cultists, and cosmic horrors. Nothing is as it seems. Sanity is an irregular bedfellow, all too often replaced by whisperings in the dark. Strange creatures, weird science, and sinister cults dominate the Cthulhu Mythos, intent on realizing their mad schemes to bring about the end of everything.

Your mind will suffer - between sanity and psychosis, your senses will be disrupted until you question the reality of everything around you. Trust no one. Slinking shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.

But the best part is the original Super Blast mode! Customize a set of special rules to create a crazy fun experience: the chicken ball which changes trajectory when it decides to, or the icy floor that makes playing a bit more... tricky. Combine those rules to find your favorite Super Blast experience, and beat your friends on it.

Up to 4 players at the same time or 16 in a tournament, teamplay is the key to achieve victories. Good positioning in the court, communication and skills will decide who's the winner.

Set the rules you like and play a quick match, or compete in a tournament at places around the world with your friends, unlock the special characters of the story mode and complete all the challenges. New game plus for the most skilled players included.

Can you imagine playing some volley in the sunny Barcelona beaches or under a rain of sakura petals in Tokyo? Join in and have a blast!
