When it comes to a new gaming system, the launch titles are incredibly important, not just to get people to buy more software, but to keep the excitement levels high. Just look at the Wii U and its anemic launch window. The same was true of the PS Vita and the 3DS, and both system took months – even years to gain traction (and both libraries are still lacking, especially the Vita).
That’s a lesson both Sony and Microsoft seem to have taken to heart with the launches of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While it’s true that the majority of games due out for the next gen are simply upgraded version of current gen games, if you have the choice of playing a game like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on current gen or you can simply wait a few weeks for a graphically improved next-gen version for the same price, why not?
We covered the PlayStation 4’s launch titles earlier, and now we offer a look at the Xbox One and its 19 launch titles. There will be more, of course. So far there have been over 70 games confirmed, 13 of which are Xbox One exclusives, and more are sure to follow.
For now though, here are the 19 games that you can play on November 22, when the Xbox One launches.
