Xbox One launch games: full list revealed

Xbox One launch games revealed
Battlefield 4 joins the ranks

It's a big day for Microsoft as it brings the Xbox One in full force to Gamescom.

This morning it detailed its indie development platform and also confirmed that pre-order versions of the Xbox One in Europe will come bundled with a free FIFA 14 download.

Now it's given us a full list of the titles that will be available for the Xbox One from launch day, and we think it's fair to say that you'll be getting a few hours' worth of play.

There are no fewer than 23 titles hitting us on day one. And while we'll be able to get our fix of Watch Dogs and Dead Rising 3 from the get go, Just Dance 2014 and Zumba Fitness are also in there to keep the more casual players happy.

So, from launch day you'll be able to get your hands on the following:

  • Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
