Coming in March
Return to the post-apocalyptic Science-Fantasy world of Magalan, in the the sequel to Elex, from developer Piranha Bytes. Elex II is an enormous open-world, role-playing experience which players are able to explore with the game-changing freedom of a jetpack! March 1st looks like a very exciting XBox game release date.
What’s going on, in Elex II?
Several years after defeating the Hybrid as Jax, in Elex, a new Alien threat has arrived to Magalan, endagering the planet with the powers of the Dark Elex.
Jax must venture off to try and unite the factions of Magalan, to defend his dystopian home world, and his family.
Characters (Npcs) will help you, or leave you, depending on how you behave. And they are able to be killed, which will all have an effect on your story, and its outcomes. The sequel boasts a “massively improved control system.”
We fully expect a healthy mix of close, and further-ranged combat, with plenty of moral decisions that could alter your path.
We’ll have a full review on Elex II within a few weeks, after its release on XBox Series X/S, so be sure to check back!
Why are we so excited about ELEX II?
Award-winning creators of the Gothic and Risen series, Piranha Bytes are currently on a tremendous roll. This should be one for the history books, as we expect an epic story with revolutionary freedom to explore.
The Long-awaited Borderlands spinoff, finally arrives in March and it looks both awesome and kind of bonkers!
Who is Tiny Tina?
Tiny Tina is your insane guide, through this stunning tabletop realm. Your weapons are some pretty serious guns, and devestating magic spells.
Build your team and fight the bad guys!
Stubborn Captain Valentine and protocol-obsessed robot Frette are here to assist your quest to defeat the Dragon Lord. Along the journey, you’ll meet a number of cool misfit characters like a lute-wielding Bardbarian and your own “Fairy Punchfather.”
You can use your firepower to destroy enemies, including trash-talking skeletons, land-roaming sharks, and gigantic bosses.
Create the perfect hero
With deep customization, including a multiclass system, you can mix and match six unique character skill trees, all with their own unique, and interesting abilities. Level up, refine and expand your arsenal, and become the ultimate Hero.
Explore dangerous dungeons for loot, and gain every advantage.
Truly Chaotic Co-Op
How you play the co-op mode is up to you: You can collaborate with up to 3 friends, even to varying degrees. Share the loot evenly, or greedily swipe the goods up first, it’s your call.
Why are we so excited about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands-Next-Level Edition?
This long-awaited spinoff looks like it’s everything we hoped it would be, and then some. The tone seems darkly-whimsical and the gameplay looks quite impressive. We feel the character, Tiny Tina is fun enough, and crazy enough, to make this an unforgettable game, especially for fans of the Borderlands series. She is also crazy enough to make March 25th a very important release date for a very intriguing XBox game.
The Dawn of Ragnarok Expansion Pack seems like a seriously ambitious expansion, even for a franchises with the successful history of Assassin’s Creed.
To date, there have already been two DLC’s for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which originally released on Nov. 10, 2020. Wrath of the Druids and The Seige of Paris are both huge expansions, and unique experiences that each take hours to complete.
The third DLC to Valhalla, The Dawn of Ragnarok, has been confirmed to be the largest of the expansions. If you haven’t completed the other two, its also confirmed, that won’t be a problem, as each DLC is entirely independantly enjoyable.
The Dawn of Ragnarok’s story
Odin’s son, Baldr, has been taken prisoner by the noticeably surly fire giant, Surtr. The dwarven kingdom of Svartalfheim is in big trouble.
Based in the world of Norse Myth, this story introduces invaders who threaten the fate of the Nine Realms. Eivor, or Odin, battles mystical creatures, with magical powers of fire and ice, to save Baldr.
What’s new in this Expansion?
Eivor gains some new abilities, including temporary invisibility and teleportation.
Also, there is a new weapon introduced in Dawn of Ragnarok; Atgeir, a polearm-spear hybrid.
Why are we so excited about Assassins’ Creed Valhala – Dawn of Ragnarok Expansion Pack
While there were certainly a lot of mixed reactions to Valhalla’s two previous DLC’s- I personally enjoyed them both, quite a bit. They were not without flaws, but overall, they were each worthwhile experiences, that further enriched the world that surrounds Valhalla’s protagonist, Eivor. The Dawn of Ragnarok appears to be more, possibly a lot more, of the same.
The game is in your hands..
Create your own game with MLB the Show ’22 – MVP Edition.
However, in 2021, for the first time in years MLB’s famous console presence graced the XBox once again. 2022’s The Show continues that suddenly-renewed tradition.
Create, customize and develop your own elite prospect and play several seasons while you wait for opening day, which has been officially delayed.
Returning is Dynasty Mode, which has been popular with fantasy sports fans.
This season’s new release reportedly, adds a new Mini Seasons mode, where each season has different challenges; lockouts not among them.
The Show’s release date is April 1st, which is typically the date the season opens.
Why are we excited about MLB The Show ’22 MVP Edition?
As a result of a labor dispute between myself and my swell employers, here at Tech Square, there will be nothing submitted in this section. That is, except this mention of upcoming XBox games release dates.
Back to the beginning
35 years after the NES release of Final Fantasy, the first of an extremely long-lived and well-loved RPG series, Stranger Of Paradise brings players right back to where it all started.
Recently, developers have revealed that, among other things, the most recent installment of the franchise would follow Jack Garland, perhaps better known as Garland from the first Nintendo Final Fantasy game!
While the game isn’t a 1-for-1 remake of the first Final Fantasy game, the similarities are deliberate. In an alternate timeline, but in the same dimension as Final Fantasy, Strangers of Paradise is said to take a look at Jack Garland’s character, and examine his choices, as he battles the series’ original antagonist, Chaos.
Why are we excited about Strangers Of Paradise – Final Fantasy Origins?
The trailer that dropped, during E3 2021, showed off some seriously cool boss battles, and we noticed the game wasn’t a turn-based RPG, which has at times been a well-recieved change to Final Fantasy’s gameplay structure. Strangers Of Paradise looks a little bit more like Dark Souls, than any of the earlier Final Fantasy installments, which we are very intrigued by. This is among the most highly anticipated, of the upcoming XBox games release dates, around the entire globe.
Dead By Daylight: Sadako Rising
Dead By Daylights 23rd DLC, Sadako Rising, adds killer Sadako, The Onryō. Sadoko is the creepy, slowly crawling and otherworldy-powerful spectre who emerges from TV screens and kills and curses onlookers.
Sadako the Onryō
Drawn from the Japanese novel and film, Ringu, which inspired an American film- adaption called The Ring, Sadako dies a terribly cruel death, and her wrath manifests into a cursed videotape. Unfortunate souls who find and watch the video, soon begin their own harrowing survival tales that even when survived, have ghastly long-term consequences from.
The hopelful survivor character, is Yoichi Asakawa, the only person who has encountered The Onryō and survived. A marine biologist now, his search for answers has driven him through treacherous waters, and altered his way of thinking, in strange ways.
Why are we excited about Dead By Daylight: Sadako Rising?
Besides the fact that Ringu and its killer Sadako are both amazing, (and if you haven’t seen them; check them out,) every clip and image we’ve seen of the 23rd chapter of Dead By Daylight looks intensely creepy. That’s definitely not for everyone, but if you’ve read this far, it might be right up your alley. Equally intriguing is the survivor character, Yoichi Asawaka, whom audiences met as a young boy, in Ringu.
As a side note, its worth mentioning that of all the upcoming Xbox games release dates, March 8 is the scariest.
The DLC is available on Stadia.
March’s sixth upcoming XBox games release date is the 3/29 console debut of Crusader Kings III.
Sequel to one of the most popular strategy games ever made, Crusader Kings III has one of the fastest-growing, fan bases of all-time. Players Rule a small realm or a major empire, as history, and challengers, develop rapidly around them.
What’s the objective of Crusader Kings III?
Gain advantages, build alliances, and demonstrate power over your own environment. Ensure the success of your Royal House, by arranging marriages, spreading faith and recruiting fighters.
Why are we excited about Crusader Kings III?
If you’ve played Crusader Kings, II or III, for PC, you already have a pretty good idea why console gamers should be anxious to get started down this road. This is easily the best game of its kind, and there have been so many reported addititions for the console debut, making March 9th, a very exciting XBox game release date.
Co-op and versus-modes are included, in this extremely highly-anticipated, multiplayer, adventure/survival/horror game based on Sam Raimi’s beloved Evil Dead/Army of Darkness movie trilogy, and recent TV series.
Good Vs. The Evil Dead
Play as Ash, the zombie-armageddon-survival series’ main character, or any of the friends he’s picked up along the way. Or you can take control of the Kandarian Demon, and hunt Ash down!
Why are we excited about Evil Dead The Game?
From what we’ve seen of the game, which is frankly a lot, Evil Dead The Game looks just as over-the-top violent and frighteningly hilarious as the intellectual property its based upon. That you can play as the Evil Dead, itself, is a recent revelation we are especially thrilled about. Of all the upcoming XBox release dates, May 13 should be scary-good.
Play as the boss of a criminal gang called “The Saints.” Eliminate all rival gangs. Take over the city of Santo Ileso and forge your criminal empire.
The return of the popular Saint’s Row franchise is a long-awaited one. And frankly, all the trailers we’ve seen have been impressive.
What to expect:
In a world stricken with crime, where gangs fight for power, a group of young friends begin their own criminal venture, as they rise to the top in their bid to become Self Made.
In this origin story, you can customize your own crime boss and play alone or in co-op mode.
Why are we excited about Saint’s Row?
Past installments have been fun, unique and entirely engaging experiences, and 2022’s upcoming release looks seriously promising, based on all the footage we’ve seen.
What to expect:
Trying to survive a well made horror game can be an exhilerating experience, and the track record of the folks behind The Quarry developers, Supermassive, is definitely strong enough to have our attention.
Earlier in March, they dropped a teaser and revealed a full trailer, and both were extremely promising, even a little startling.
Nine teenage camp counselors are thrown into unpredictable terrors, on the last night of summer camp. You’ll play as all 9, as you try to survive being hunted by crazed, bloodthirsty locals and supernatural forces, that seem utterly nightmarish, based on what we’ve seen.
Why are we excited about The Quarry?
The cinematic elements of past games from SuperMassive Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology lead us to believe we may be looking at a classic horror game for the ages, with the Quarry. The teaser and full trailers were both very good, and there’s just something special about a good horror game.
