When it comes to console gaming, there are few that would argue against the fact that Xbox has the weakest lineup of games these days. While Microsoft has been making a lot of moves to change that going forward, for the time being Xbox gamers don’t have a whole lot to look forward to when it comes to Xbox-exclusive experiences.

However, there are still some potential gems along the way that can be played on Xbox, and this post rounds up the 5 games that should be worth your time for the remainder of 2019.

Control

The last couple of games from Remedy Entertainment have been Xbox console-exclusives, though that streak is coming to an end with their new game. This one has players controlling Jesse Faden and her telekinetic abilities as she aims to take down the Hiss, which has invaded the world and caused chaos. Expect more of the engrossing and cinematic action found in games like Alan Wake and Quantum Break, but this time with a supernatural twist. Control launches on August 27th.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

While it’s easy to roll your eyes whenever you hear about another Call of Duty game, what is being done with the series this year has actually never been done before. Infinity Ward is going back to the franchise that turned this series into the juggernaut that it is, only instead of making a sequel they are rebooting it. Modern Warfare is built from the same skeleton as the original game, though it is being reimagined to make it a fresh experience. Modern Warfare launches on August 27th.

The Outer Worlds

Do you like Fallout: New Vegas? Do you want a game that is essentially a spiritual successor to that game? Well, then you’re likely going to want to check out the latest from Obsidian Entertainment. The game is an open-world RPG that is played in the first-person perspective, and the players will be exploring many different areas filled with deadly monsters and interesting NPCs. The players will also be able to recruit these NPCs, which can then accompany you in combat and come with their own abilities and story arcs. The Outer Worlds launches on October 25th.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

A new game from Respawn Entertainment is on the way, yet it has nothing to do with Titanfall or Apex Legends. Their next game is actually a singleplayer Star Wars experience, and that description alone has many people very excited. However, we need to keep in mind that this is published by EA, who regularly seems to go out of their way to ruin games with microtransactions and other boneheaded decisions. Still, we have our fingers crossed that the tides will change with this release and deliver an experience that Star Wars fans can fully love. Fallen Order launches on November 15th.

DOOM Eternal

The DOOM series is coming back after its triumphant return in 2016, and the follow-up looks like it will improve on an already solid foundation. id Software is yet again delivering another thrilling singleplayer experience, but this time they are also aiming to deliver a multiplayer component to match it. The footage from the game that has been shown so far looks fantastic, and we can’t wait for the finished product later this year. DOOM Eternal launches on November 22nd.

For individuals who may not recall, the Year 2000 Problem, commonly referred to as the Y2K scare, was a thrilling period of chaos experienced in the late 90s. There was widespread concern about a potential catastrophic computing disaster due to discrepancies in dating systems. Today, we had the opportunity to experience some unexpected events as EA and Square Enix faced technical difficulties due to the leap year, causing their games to be temporarily unplayable.

Players of EA’s Sports WRC encountered a problem on the 29th where they couldn’t start the game because of a timezone glitch. The issue was promptly fixed, but users had to adjust their system settings for the next day to play. Meanwhile, Square Enix is facing challenges, with the problem only impacting Nintendo players and not PlayStation users. The Theatrythm Final Bar Line failing to start up ruined the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In Helldivers 2, players will find themselves in need of additional firepower to spread freedom across the galaxy. Arrowhead Game Studios announced that armored mechs will be included in the game for free shortly after its release. Leaked gameplay footage on social media suggests that heavy armor support is on its way.

IGN showcased a few clips, with the first one being shared by Redditor fozzye18, featuring a Helldiver piloting a mech equipped with what appears to be twin-linked autocannons. It’s important to note that in another clip shared by Redditor Klyka, we witness a mech equipped with a gatling gun and rockets, hinting at the possibility of various strategy versions for these machines.

A clip from TikTok ponders the possibility of a different outcome at the famous Malevelon Creek, where the Helldivers community faced a significant defeat against the Socialist Automatons.

Mechs… enjoy

To fully experience Nacon’s upcoming social racer Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown, an Internet connection is required. The new trailer reveals the off-road areas of Hong Kong Island, highlighting the diverse experiences offered in the upcoming game. It also emphasizes the MMO features that have been integral to the franchise.

“While driving, there are always other players surrounding you, which brings the city to life,” a press release discloses. “In Test Drive Unlimited, players can immerse themselves in the world of cars through interactions at dealerships and workshops, discussing future purchases, dream cars, and customization options.”

Undoubtedly, there is a trade-off with the need for a constant online connection to support various social features such as leaderboards, races, inventories, moderation, live events, anti-cheat measures, and the overall game experience. You need an Internet connection to play Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown.

As expected for an online-focused game, players will need to rely on Nacon’s servers and PSN.

Nevertheless, it appears that the racing game is making significant progress. In a recent development update, the team highlighted their ongoing efforts to enhance the particle effects for off-road gameplay. They are currently facing challenges in recreating the expansive dust clouds seen in their WRC games within a shared-world sandbox environment. “We are currently in the process of integrating and optimizing these effects,” it concedes. “It is a crucial aspect of off-road immersion, yet it also demands a lot of resources and performance.”

It appears that the game is nearing its final stages. The team is taking their time to guarantee that Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown provides a seamless, stable, and enjoyable experience for players. It has been brought to our attention that we need to ensure the game meets your expectations before release. We are currently focused on improving various aspects, such as enhancing server stability and optimizing the game’s performance.
