Rocket Riot 3D
Reckless Racing Ultimate
Microsoft Solitaire Collection
Gunstringer: Dead Man Running
Skulls of the Shogun – launches at the end of January
The line-up of new titles from Microsoft Studios has something for everyone, from casual puzzlers and high-energy racing to immersive adventure and non-stop arcade action. Xbox fans will also find their favorite features like leaderboards, multiplayer modes, connecting with friends and more. PLAY release highlights include Reckless Racing, Rocket Riot, Hydro, Toy Soldiers, Adera and Minesweeper (the full list of new releases can be found below). The games are available for download now and can be purchased via the Windows 8 App Store or Xbox live. Plus, all Microsoft Studios titles let you try before you buy.
