Death’s Door // Source: Devolver Digital After the arrival of Mass Effect Legendary Edition to blame itself in the adventure trilogy of Commander Shepard in a remastered and optimized version in 4K UHD, it’s Hitman Trilogy’s turn to announce itself for on January 20 with his compilation of Agent 47 assassination missions around the world.
Barely available on January 20, Rainbow Six Extraction is already coming to Game Pass. This tactical FPS is playable for up to three players, embodied by the usual Rainbow Six operators with their weapons and evolving maps. Available upon release, The Anacrusis is a first-person, co-op shooter for up to four players. You must get out alive from a spaceship invaded by hordes of aliens. Fight, restart and unlock special abilities in this game with a very 1970s universe.
For another vision of the ride in the solar system, take the road to Outer Wilds. A platform game to explore in your spaceship and discover new planets. Camera in hand, weapons also to protect you, try to unravel the mysteries and secrets of the worlds that present themselves to you. Spelunky 2 makes you an explorer of procedurally generated caves and ruins. Every action has repercussions in this demanding game to play solo or with friends. Do you rather feel like putting on the firefighter’s uniform? Alone or in a squad with your friends, set out to put out fires and save lives at the cost of sometimes crazy situations in Embr. More original and by the developers of the excellent Guacamelee, Nobody Saves the World offers an action RPG with a unique artistic touch where it will be possible to embody all kinds of creatures.
