Somerville

Upcoming Xbox One games for 2022 and beyond (11)

Release date: TBC 2022

When a project is from a studio led by the founder of Limbo and Inside developer Playdead, you know that it’s not going to be all kittens and rainbows. The beautifully stylized Somerville looks like another agonizingly stressful narrative journey as we follow a family through a major disaster. Given that we’re even joined by the family dog, you can just tell that the threat of loss amidst chaos is going to be a pervasive theme. At least we have until 2022 to prepare.

Party Animals

Upcoming Xbox One games for 2022 and beyond (12)

Release date: TBC 2022

There’s absolutely no shortage of party games where the name of the game is to annihilate your friends but none of them let you play as a kitten or a corgi and force you to fight over gummy bears. Party Animals is the latest in a long line of physics-based chaos machines but stands out with its frankly adorable roster of characters. A dinosaur called Underbite, Carrot the bunny, and Otta the, well, otter are all waiting for you to arm them with crossbows and kill each other in hilarious ways. How could we disappoint them?
