Every week, numerous games launch on Xbox One, but which ones truly stand out? Here are some of the biggest and most anticipated titles launching across Microsoft’s platforms next week. We have a few new smaller releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is finally launching on the console, and Journey to the Savage Planet offers an interesting take on the first-person shooter genre. With that in mind, here are all the best games launching next week, between January 27 and 31.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire should launch on January 28, starting at $60.
