Get your backlog ready, because another 10 new Xbox games are launching on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC next week — although sadly, they don't include any games coming to Game Pass.

This week is a quiet one for big releases, giving other developers some time in the spotlight. If poking around an alchemy workstation sounds like a relaxing time for you, Alchemist: The Potion Monger tasks you with exploring its world, gathering ingredients, and crafting a host of potions. If high-octane action is more your style, though, chaotic arena shooter roguelike Sky Survivors looks like it could be a blast.

Here's a round-up of everything coming to Xbox next week. Let us know which of these you're planning on picking up in the comments!
