Xbox Exclusives in 2020
Every year we get a fresh batch of video games headed to the shelves. Some are great, some are really disappointing and others are just a continuation of a long standing franchise. Either way, it is always fun to take stock of some of the notable games coming to each console. We take a look at some games that are Xbox exclusives due to drop during 2020 and what they look like.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
This game drops in a March and it is a sequel to the 2015 game Ori and the Blind Forest. Will of the Wisps is considered a platform adventure game and it will be much like the original. The game looks to be a world that is explorable, but there areas are only accessible in a certain fashion. Ori and the player will go on this adventure together to find a world outside of the forest of Nibel. Ori’s true destiny will be discovered through various puzzles and platforms. The original was unlike any game that had been seen on Xbox before, and that trend will likely continue with Will of the Wisps.
The team over at Ninja Theory is releasing this game and it is a combat style game. The game allows a 4v4 style of combat with 12 characters to choose from. Those 12 characters will be subdivided into 3 different classes: assassins, support or tank. The look and feel of the game seems to be something that will intrigue, however the controller layout could leave something to be desired. Either way, this game drops at the end of March.
Master Chief is back for the third chapter of the Reclaimer Saga and the sixth installment of the main Halo Series. Microsoft has kept Halo as an Xbox exclusive, and for good reason, as it has been a mainstay for the company. Master Chief is said to play a pretty central role in this game. The game should reintroduce split screen play and much more when it finally drops at the end of this year.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
Technically speaking, this game may just be releasing on the Xbox Series X and not the Xbox One, but it is still something to notate. The trailer was a pretty gruesome one, with body parts and some blood with face paint. Either way, the sequel should be dropping sometime in the final quarter of this year.
This indie game hasn’t quite been confirmed for 2020, but odds are we will see this simulator come out. This game seems to have a Harvest Moon mixed with Pokémon vibe to it, as you get to collect various creatures that are called Ooblets. Unlike Pokemon, however, there will be no battles taking place. Instead, you can expect to see Ooblet dance battles instead!
It should be a decent year for Xbox exclusives. Anytime the term Halo is mentioned in a given year, things are trending up, especially for such an epic series. The mystery that shrouds the release of Senua’s Saga is also really something to pay attention to, especially if you really liked the first game. The game that is most curious is Ooblets. It is being released by Epic Games and is kind of a same feel that we have seen before, but it could be worth some play time.
