Sports games have always been very popular on Xbox, particularly American football and soccer. Playing a sports game on your console can give you just as must of a thrill as it would if you played for real.
Here is a look at three games to try on your Xbox console if you want to try something different.
Phar Lap - Horse racing
Phar Lap allows you to experience what it is like to be a jockey, prepare a horse for the races and also build a stable of horses in the sport of horse racing.
The highest-rated horse in the world rankings at the moment is Baaeed, who is the +150 favorite in the horse betting to win this year’s International Stakes. In Phar Lap, you are hoping to come across a horse as good as the colt as they can give you major success around the world.
Striking Distance and KRAFTON announced that The Callisto Protocol, a new sci-fi survival horror game from the creator of Dead Space, will launch globally for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on December 2, 2022. Watch the new gameplay trailer.
Built by a team of industry veterans led by iconic game director Glen Schofield, The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror that fuses brutal combat with a deeply human story in a terrifying sci-fi world.
Set on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320, The Callisto Protocol challenges players to escape the maximum security Black Iron Prison and uncover the terrifying secrets of the United Jupiter Company. Players will need to search their surroundings and adapt their tactics, using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat to survive a mysterious outbreak that has thrown Callisto into chaos.
The game stars Josh Duhamel as Jacob Lee, a cargo ship pilot trapped deep within Black Iron Prison, and Karen, star of The Boys, who plays a mysterious fellow inmate. More details about the game’s cast and story will be revealed later this year.
“As a game director, there’s nothing more satisfying than taking players on a terrifying ride that stays with them long after they’ve put the controller down,” said Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios. “Survival horror games have been my passion for decades, and I’m excited to take advantage of the latest consoles to take the genre to terrifying new places when we ship The Callisto Protocol later this year.”
Team17 and Fika Productions announced that Ship of Fools will launch on new-generation console platforms later this year. In addition to the Steam for PC version, the frantic one or two-player local and online co-op roguelite is destined for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. Set sail into the Forgotten Waters with this frenzied co-op roguelike! Take on colossal leviathans, uncover lost treasure & attempt to hold back the Everlasting Storm! Are you Fool enough?
Set on the high seas, Ship of Fools follows a bunch of courageous (well, foolhardy) anthropomorphic sailors out to save their Archipelago from gigantic, deadly leviathans and The Everlasting Storm, as they strive to prevent the Aquapocalypse.
Watch the official announcement trailer below.
As the Fools and their good ship Stormstrider navigate the treacherous waters of the Archipelago, they’ll engage in chaotic cannon firefights, thwack enemies with oars, and run-saving deck repairs as the behemoths from the depths try to send them to Davey Jones’ locker. Along the way, the Fools will have to work together to stave off enemy encounters to secure rewards, uncover lost treasures and remote shops on islands, use harpoons to loot items adrift on the open sea, and ultimately defeat the final boss and try to stop the end of the world.
Ship of Fools key features include:
Bombastic combat – Frantic ship-based combat against colossal leviathans and horrifying creatures from across the deep, dark waters of the Archipelago
Frantic co-op experience – Designed from the keel up for co-op play, manage ship repairs in the heat of battle, reload and re-manoeuvre cannons, and use paddles to strike enemies as they board the Stormstrider
Endless replayability – Upgrade your crew and unlock items and additional Fools to take on the ever-changing seas, with multiple runs needed to avert the Aquapocalypse.
