The 10 Most Anticipated Xbox One Games

With the Xbox 1 just days away from being released, our friends at Prima Games have put together a list of the top 10 games for the Xbox 1 that they're most excited about. Check out some of their picks below, and head over to the main site to take a look at the rest.

10. Zoo Tycoon

A business simulation may not seem like the ideal purchase for a next-gen console, but Zoo Tycoon nails the theme and the visuals so well that it deserves a mention. You'll manage a number of resources in the zoo, using a user-friendly interface while keeping everything running smoothly. On top of that, the photo-realistic animals are dazzling, as if you're visiting an actual zoo. If you have young ones that love animals – or adore them yourself – you'll definitely want to make an investment.

9. Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

Edward Kenway's pirating adventure is easily one of the best in the Assassin's Creed series to date, a fresh start that introduces miles of terrain on both land and sea. With rollicking sea battles, sword-slinging action and treasure exploration, there's no shortage of things to do in Ubisoft's latest. On top of that, the Xbox One's muscles make the visuals even better than on previous consoles, making this the definitive version to own. Grab your fake pegleg (but don't cut off your real one) and get to pirating, matey!

8. FIFA 14

There are a lot of fabulous sports games to choose from at launch, including football and basketball, but there's something about a good soccer match that can't be denied. FIFA 14 offers the best of both worlds – a presentation that nails down the TV-broadcast style in both visuals and sound, and gameplay that will keep you coming back, from the corner kicks to the dazzling Pele-style goal scores in extra time. Throw in some tremendous online and management options, and you have a sports experience that only a fool would turn away.

7. Crimson Dragon

Originally developed for the Xbox 360 for exclusive Kinect play, this Panzer Dragoon-inspired adventure has been a long time coming. However, with refinements to its graphics and gameplay – including Xbox One controller support – it'll be worth the wait. Featuring breathtaking locales and classic gameplay straight out of Sega's playbook, Crimson Dragon will also challenge players with immense boss battles and tougher levels. Panzer Dragoon Saga it's not, but it's certainly the next best thing.
