New Xbox game releases — May 8th to 14th
Next week sees 14 new games heading to the Xbox platform, with the headliners being strategy sequel Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 joining Game Pass, and high-speed precision racer Trackmania finally zooming onto Xbox.
We’ve got plenty more fuel for the bottomless backlog coming next week, from the breakneck action of Ubisoft’s Trackmania reboot to a game where you play as a shrinking scientist who must concoct a cure while dealing with getting ever smaller, which honestly sounds brilliant. Game Pass subscribers, meanwhile, will be getting Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2, the sequel to CyberConnect2’s superb tactics game, along with a new Xbox Series X|S version of Weird West and Shadowrun Trilogy on PC Game Pass.
From this page, you can view a game’s achievement list (if we have it yet), subscribe to a game for news updates, add something to your wishlist, and even click through to the Microsoft Store to preorder or purchase. Here’s a breakdown of everything coming to Xbox next week… let us know which of these you’re planning on picking up in the comments!
Stranded: Alien Dawn — Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One
· Discover an expansive, living 3D world with remarkable flora and fauna.
· Manage your survivors’ needs, health and happiness.

AN UNFORGIVING WORLD
Stranded: Alien Dawn pushes you and your survivors to the brink. Limited resources, unpredictable weather, illness and hostile alien creatures make it hard to establish a foothold on an unforgiving world. The next challenge is never far away, requiring construction of an increasingly robust base using advanced resources and improved defences.
Ensure your group’s physical and mental wellbeing by providing weapons, medicine, and much-needed entertainment. Every survivor has a unique backstory, varying levels of ability in key skills, and both positive and negative traits. Only by improving their skills and maximising their potential will you survive.
AN UNPREDICTABLE JOURNEY
In Stranded: Alien Dawn, every playthrough is unique. Experience a journey driven by random story events, alien wildlife threats and adverse weather. There will be setbacks; devise your own innovative solutions to problems and manage multiple crises at the same time. However, actions have consequences and as you strive to plan ahead, you must make difficult choices to shape the story of your survivors, balancing short and long-term outcomes with risk and reward.
Design and build your base on an alien world and transform it from simple shelter to high-tech outpost. Protect it with perimeter defences, decorate it with furnishings, introduce automated devices such as defensive turrets, and discover new technology to create your own functioning space pad.
