There’s no denying that 2017 has been a great year for video games, with no shortage of success for Microsoft, including the release of the Xbox One X. Despite a lackluster lineup of games when the powerful console launched in October, next year is set to deliver some heavy hitting titles. Whether you have the newest Xbox console or not, there are a bunch of upcoming games to get excited about, a few of which are even Microsoft exclusive titles. Without further delay, here are the top 10 Xbox One games to watch for in 2018.

A Way Out – Hazelight Studios / EA

Making its first appearance during E3 this year, there has been a ton of buzz about this new co-op game. A Way Out comes from the creator of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Josef Fares, and follows two inmates as they try to break out from a high-security prison.Whether you’ve watched Prison Break or just have a fascination with anything similar, this is a game to get excited about. Honestly, the very premise alone is enough to pull you in, and hopefully what we’ve seen from gameplay trailers, this game is exactly as advertised. Watch for its release in late March of next year.


Monster Hunter: World – CAPCOM

Monster Hunter: World is set to start the year off on the right foot with a late January release. From the refinement of the hack-and-slash genre to the beautiful graphics, Monster Hunter: World is met with great anticipation. For anyone that has followed the franchise developed by Capcom, you’ll know this is the first time it will make an appearance on an Xbox system. Finally, Xbox fans worldwide will get to experience the world of Monster Hunter, as they journey to become a badass hunter slaying majestic beasts and that is exciting enough all on its own.

Sea of Thieves – Rare / Microsoft

If you’ve been looking for a pirate game that makes light of the trade, you’ll find that in the upcoming title from Rare: Sea of Thieves.  It’s an open world MMO that brings plundering pirates straight to your TV. With its charming art style and humor, Sea of Thieves takes you on a journey across the seven seas as you plunder and battle your way to becoming a true pirate legend. This Microsoft exclusive title seems to have it all, and considering you won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on it — it comes out in late March — it’s no wonder this is one of the most anticipated titles on the Xbox for 2018.

    When I see “TOP 10 XBOX ONE GAMES” in an article headline, I expect to see just that. XBOX ONE games. Meaning, exclusives. NOT 3rd party titles I can get on other consoles besides the XBOX ONE…

      I dont think anyone would want a multiplat on another console. Xbox Live destroys PSN. The X1X has the GPU power of the Ps4 and Ps4 Protato combined(6TF).

          Not when you factor in Xbox Live. PSN is garbage compared to Live.

            I use both and would disagree. What exactly makes you say “PSN is garbage compared to Live”?

            PSN has no dedicated chat servers, no integrated LFG, no Clubs, very little customization, game dvr isnt as good, PSN has been infected with spam, and probably most importantly it has had a major security breach in the past. PSN is functional, thats about it.

            It’s very clear to see what you like vs dislike. Now what’s good vs bad on the other hand is a completely different story.

      Exactly how many exclusive titles is Microsoft set to have for the Xbox? Because if we’re being honest, I can count all of 3 and they’re all on this list.
