The Xbox 720 games we know of have been nailed down thus far.
As the Xbox 720 nears what may be the official announcement date, one big question sits on everybody’s mind. We want to know what games are going to be made for the next generation Microsoft console. Official Xbox Magazine has compiled a list of what we know for sure thus far is being made for the Xbox 720.
Human Element is a non-linear zombie survival game created by Robotoki. Robert Bowling had quit Activision to start this particular studio on his own. Not a lot is known about the “classes” in this game, but the classes given are intelligence, action, and stealth. You have three choices of how to play; solo, with an adult, or with a child.
Rainbow 6: Patriots is a more scripted shooter than previous Rainbow Six titles. This time you can plan missions using a 3D hologram of the level, and the developers say it will feel quite different. You will face moral dilemmas this time around, as you’ll have to decide whether it’s worth killing a civilian to take down a terrorist, and choices of that sort.
Watch Dogs is an open world type of game set in a futuristic Chicago where technology governs all. You will hack into anything with a charge and control whatever you need to. The game will apparently offer the option of interacting with a smartphone, adding another dimension to the hacker feel.
Destiny is Bungie’s newest idea, originally thought of as a “break” from the Halo titles, but this list proves otherwise. Aliens have invaded and you have to reclaim the wealth of the planet. Three classes offer different abilities based on the nearby moon-sized entity known as Traveller.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the sequel to what is considered one of the most successful Zelda clones ever made. There is very little known besides the return of Jade and Uncle Pey’j.
Dragon Age 3: Inquisition is the third game in Bioware’s fantasy epic, where an act of magical terrorism has set the mages and Templars on the edge of civil war.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a different kind of RPG where people are allowed to sample the thoughts of others around them, and those who end up addicted are hunted down by the Psycho Squad police force. The protagonist could be on either side, but nothing is known yet.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the final act in an RPG series where Geralt is finally free of his amnesia and now must search for his loved ones in an open world bigger than that of Skyrim.
Thief is a next generation reboot where master thief Garrett basically plays the villainous side of Batman.
Battlefield 4 is a shooter that EA says looks astonishing.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is the epic follow-up to the Assassin’s Creed series which supposedly puts Desmond Miles in the shoes of a pirate.
Halo 5 gives us everything that didn’t make it into Halo 4 and continues the story of Master Chief.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is, well, a soccer game probably based on the World Cup.
Sniper Elite 3 is a sandbox shooter based in World War 2.
