Every week, numerous games launch on Xbox One, but which ones truly stand out? Here are some of the biggest and most anticipated titles launching across Microsoft’s platforms next week. We have a few new smaller releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Untitled Goose Game is finally launching on the console, and Borderlands 3: Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot offers an interesting take on the first-person shooter genre. With that in mind, here are all the best games launching next week, between December 16 and 20. After this, we won’t see any major games until January 2020.
Gearbox can’t let go of Handsome Jack and Borderlands 3’s first major campaign expansion focuses on the former Hyperion head… sort of. He’s still rotting in the ground after his death, but Mad Moxxi has a job for us Vault Hunters to raid his lavish casino and loot the riches within.
Borderlands 3: Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot should launch on December 19. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced.
Prepare for the fight of the galaxy
Get ready to raid the Handsome Jackpot for Moxxi, and reap the rewards of Jack’s lavish lifestyle for yourself. This expansion is available to owners of the Season Pass or those who buy the Super Deluxe Edition of the game.
A few days ago, a game called Untitled Goose Game launched on the Epic Games Store and Nintendo Switch. Since then, it’s become of of the most popular titles on both stores. The game’s premise is quite simple. It’s a lovely morning in a village and you’re a horrible goose. Untitled Goose Game is essentially about a goose let loose on an unsuspecting populace. Make your way around town, from gardens to the shops, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day.
Untitled Goose Game should launch on December 17. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced and will join Xbox Game Pass at launch.
