This week we have no new "AAA" releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, the popular shooters Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil launch on the console, and Mulaka allows you to slice your way through hordes of enemies. With that in mind, here are all the biggest games launching this week, between February 26 and March 2, 2018.
Deep Rock Galactic
Deep Rock Galactic is an upcoming Left 4 Dead-meets-Minecraft mash-up from Ghost Ship Games, formed from the ashes of Microsoft's shuttered Press Play Studios. Formerly a concept codenamed Project Dwarka, Deep Rock Galactic pits up to four friends in procedurally-generated caves, full of angry aliens eager to protect the valuable minerals contained in each mine.
Turok takes place in a world where time has no meaning, and evil knows no bounds. Torn from a world long gone, the time traveling warrior Turok finds himself thrust into a savage land rife with conflict. An evil overlord known as "The Campaigner" seeks to shred the fabric of time and rule the universe using an ancient artifact known as "The Chronoscepter". The Chronoscepter was shattered thousands of years ago in an effort to keep it from falling into evil hands. Turok vows to find the eight pieces spread throughout the Lost Land and put an end to The Campaigner's scheme.
Turok should launch on March 2, priced at $19.99.
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil continues right after the events of the first game. After having defeated The Campaigner, Turok throws The Chronocepter into a waiting volcano to destroy it. Unfortunately, the blast awakens an even deadlier force known as "The Primagen". Once again a Turok is tasked with restoring peace to the land and stopping The Primagen from merging Earth with the Nether World.
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil should launch on March 2, priced at $19.99.
Immortal Redneck is a first-person shooter set in Egypt with rogue-lite elements. The game mixes old-school "floaty" shooter action with challenging gameplay much like Ziggurat on Xbox One.

Immortal Redneck should launch on February 27, priced at $19.99.

de Blob 2
de Blob 2 is a colorful platformer that utilizes unique painting mechanics and low gravity space. Set a few years after the events of the first de Blob game, de Blob 2 revolves around another attempt to wipe all colorful individuality from Prisma City and its residents.
