In the wake of Halo Infinite's delay, it's up to The Falconeer and 4 more indie games to pick up the slack on Microsoft's next-gen console at launch.

'The Ascent'

Curve Digital and Neon Giant

The Ascent is a fast-paced, top-down shooter with an aesthetic similar to Cyberpunk 2077, so if you’re looking for a co-op experience, this is the one to set your sights on.

'Bright Memory'

Bright Memory

This fast-paced first-person shooter was made by just one man. It'll offer a taste of what's to come in 2021's Bright Memory Infinite, which launch on Xbox Series X in 2021.

Call of the Sea looks like a tropical BioShock set in the 1930s. Players search an island for their missing husband but stumble onto a supernatural lost civilization.

The Falconeer

Another Xbox Series X game made by just one man (Tomas Sala), The Falconeer places you atop a gigantic falcon for some aerial combat. We loved the game in our early preview, and it will be a must-play on Xbox Series X.
