By Sean Carey,

Next week 17 new games launch for Xbox, including Escape Academy, PowerWash Simulator, Musynx, DC League of Super Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace, and more.

In terms of notable releases, it's a little sparse next week. Xbox Game Pass gets two new additions on July 14th: Escape Academy and PowerWash Simulator. Then on July 15th, we have what looks to be a quick completion and one for the kids, DC League of Super Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace.

From this page, you can view a game's achievement list if it's been released, subscribe to a game for news updates, add them to your wishlist, and even click through to the Microsoft Store to preorder or purchase. Here's a breakdown of everything coming to the world of Xbox next week. Let us know which of these you're planning on picking up in the comments!

July 13th

Rayland — Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One


Redirect the course of a light beam across tricky isometric puzzle stages!

The inhabitants of Rayland use the energy from the Domus to survive, and to transport this energy they use a Reflectus, a type of equipment that reflects the rays to other Domus. Your mission is to help the inhabitants of Rayland to transport the energy of the Domus through the various lands contained in the path. For this, you must correctly position the Reflectus and rotate them so the energy rays reach the necessary Domus.

Rayland features a variety of brain teasers about reflecting a beam of light around an isometric playfield from one point to another. The emitter and receiver are stationary, and it’s your task to reposition mirror-like reflector panels to direct the course of the beam. Gameplay is simple, but the challenge is increasingly high. Do you have what it takes to clear them all?
