The final installment in the marvelous The Witcher series once again sees Gerald of Rivia slaying beasts and collecting bounties, but this time set in a massive open-world environment.

With a rich narrative, engaging characters, and well-crafted lore, The Witcher 8 is a must-have title for the Xbox One.

What exactly is the source of the phantom pain that permeates this game's multi-layered, but incomplete narrative? Snake's lost forearm? Mother Base's destruction? Creator Hideo Kojima's separation from the franchise that he transformed into a AAA display of excellent game design and ingenuity?

After taking a year off to retool, Ubisoft delivered one of the best Assassin’s Creed games yet with Assassin's Creed Origins. This gorgeous open-world adventure sets you loose in ancient Egypt, where you’ll stealthily take down enemies, explore famous pyramids and tombs, and even ride a few camels.
