Compared to the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One doesn't have that many exclusives. This is far from a problem, as Microsoft privileges the quality of titles over their quantity. So if you have purchased this console now or are considering buying one, you need to know all about the best exclusives offered by One to its players. Anyone who is a fan of racing games, for example, has several incredible options within the Forza franchise . If you prefer hooters both Halo as Gears of War are titles you need to play. So to make your life easier on this quest for exclusive Xbox One games , we've brought you 10 must-see games from the list below.

1. Ryse: Son of Rome

Son of Rome is unfortunately a title that is greatly underestimated by the owners of an Xbox One. While bringing elements from other games into its gameplay, it is a game unique in its own way. Mainly because there is hardly any other major game that addresses the Roman Empire the way Ryse approaches it. In control of Marius Titus, a Roman general, we follow a journey seeking revenge for the death of his family. The story begins in Rome, and Marius is defending the city from a barbarian invasion by the Celts. In the midst of this combat and the attempt to protect Emperor Nero, the general begins to tell his story. We are then taken to the events that led Marius to the fight against the Celts. We started as a soldier who has just finished his training. Carrying various weapons throughout the gameplay , we will face many enemies from Rome. Combat is hack n 'slash style , which encourages the creation of attack combos. You can use swords, spears and shields. In the midst of fights, you can give orders to uncontrollable characters. If you have Kinect, you can use your voice to give these commands. Ryse: Son of Rome features famous mechanics in other titles, such as the quick-time events of God of War III . This happens when some enemies are able to suffer executions. Pressing the right buttons will start a sequence. The more perfect the sequence and execution, the more rewards you earn. Also featuring a multiplayer mode in which players face off at the Colosseum in Rome, Ryse proves to be a fairly complete game. It's not perfect, far from it, but it's an Xbox One exclusive that you need to give it a try. You must play this game if:
  • Enjoy games with historical inspiration
  • Want a good combat dynamic

2. Quantum Break

Quantum Break is another title that has received mixed attention from Xbox One gamers. This is most likely due to the fact that this game is quite "different." Its gameplay and mission structure proposition is nothing that people are used to in shooters and action games. First, because Quantum Break moves over time. Not exactly time travel, but time itself. The protagonist Jack Joyce gains the power to control him after a scientific experiment has gone wrong. Antagonist, Paul Serene, responsible for the experiment and founder of the company that developed it, is who you need to fight, having the same powers. The gameplay of Quantum Break gives players many skills in terms of combat. In addition to the use of firearms and hand-to-hand combat, timing is a great advantage. You can freeze it if you like, and you can use it to teleport near enemies. With these special abilities, fighting styles are as varied as possible. This title also has a choice system, which interferes with the progression of the game. This is related to another very special feature of the game. All the important characters in Quantum Break are played by real and famous actors. At the end of each mission, these actors appear, as if it were an in-game TV series, continuing the actions taken by the player in their gameplay . Despite mixed reviews, this is an Xbox One exclusive that cannot be overlooked. It is a good quality shooter with very well built movement and interaction mechanics. In addition, the feeling that we are in a movie is interesting and brings an innovative perspective to the title. You must play this game if:
  • If you like time-themed games
  • Want to try a "different" shooter

3. State of Decay 2

State of Decay 2 is that game that every fan of The Walking Dead or World War Z will love. Anyone who has always wanted to know what it was like to survive a zombie apocalypse, building a base, collecting resources and facing humans and creatures, needs this title. So if you have an Xbox One, consider yourself a lucky person. The defining word for State of Decay 2 is community. The goal is for you to build and manage a base with survivors of the apocalypse. Managing this community is quite challenging. Searching for resources and collecting them is as necessary as meeting the needs and demands of the people living in your base. Early in the game there is a good tutorial that will teach you how to deal with zombies. Once you go through this step, you should choose a location on the map to set up your base. Do not underestimate this choice. You can scan the areas with a binocular to see what's nearby. This makes it easier later when you go after resources. And of course be smart and choose a high place! That done, now it's survive. State of Decay seems to offer a very realistic picture of what a zombie apocalypse would look like. Your characters have to deal with hunger, cold and lack of sleep. These issues affect your productivity and may eventually lead to your death. Since it is a really survival game that happens in a real time world , you need to be very alert and not to let your survivors stand still for long. There are a number of missions you must fulfill. The game never ends because there will always be zombies to be killed and resources to be collected. It is a very fun game that offers a unique experience amid games of the genre. You must play this game if:
  • I'm a zombie fan
  • Want to know what it's like to survive a World War Z- style apocalypse

4. Killer Instinct

Who liked to play in the arcades of the 1990s certainly played the first Killer Instinct , released in 1994. The current game, exclusive to Xbox One, is a reboot of the franchise for new generations of console. And we can say that it is very well developed, bringing all the classic mechanics and gameplay that made the series known. The Killer Instinct the 8th generation is a fighting game based on the mechanics of combos. There are the moves that start combos, those that follow them, and finally the finishers. There are still Ultra Combos, which are special moves used only to end a match with victory. This game brings two new functions to Killer Instinct . Combo Breakers are used to stop your opponent's sequential attacks. Just push the right buttons at the right time. Counter Breakers serve to prevent combos from being broken. As you can see, the fights in this game can be really frantic. Killer Instinct also has a feature present in other fighting games of the current generation. Instinct mode uses a special bar, which when filled releases a unique ability for each player. It is intended to complement each character's fighting styles and attacks. The game is divided by Seasons. Each season adds characters and game modes. There are 29 playable characters in total. The first two Seasons bring story modes, with each fighter having their own narrative. Acts throughout these modes influence the end of the game. You must play this game if:
  • It is a fan of the first games arcade of Killer Instinct
  • Want a well-developed story mode fighting game

5. Gears of War 4

The Gears of War franchise is one of the most famous on Xbox One. Its popularity and success among gamers has led to the creation of several quality titles. Gears of War 4 is the latest, although its sequel is already under development. Regarding the third title does not bring much innovation, which does not mean it is not a great game. He introduces JD Fenix ??as protagonist. The game is set chronologically 25 years after everything that happened in Gears 3 . Past events have led people on the planet Sera to adapt to a new lifestyle. Fossil fuels no longer exist, and now people have to deal with deadly windstorms that hit the entire planet. The whole plot of the game revolves around the fact that the few survivors in Sera were confined to cities with high walls. There are some, however, who rebelled against this martial law, becoming rebels. Fenix's goal is to fight this group and prevent more people from rebelling against the system. The game mechanics have not changed much from the previous title. There are still good weapon options to choose from, including some very useful new models, such as a cutting blade launcher. You can engage in melee combat, and you can eliminate enemies using sneak attacks. Thunderstorms at their varying strength levels affect the fighting and especially the weapon aiming system. You must play this game if:
  • Played previous Gears of War series titles
  • Interested in highly technological weapon shooters

6. Sea of ??Thieves

Anyone who has ever wanted to experience sea pirate life needs a lot to play Sea of ??Thieves . It is a more cooperative game than single player , mainly because up to four people can sail together on the same ship. The fun is that they are divided between functions. One is responsible for the cannons, another for maneuvering the boat, one has an eye on the map, and so on. The game world is open and there is not exactly a campaign or narrative to follow. The idea is to explore, loot, capture and sink other ships. Other pirates controlled by other groups of players can be found while exploring. All the gold you get serves to change the look of the boat and its weapons. The ultimate goal of Sea of ??Thieves is to become a legend of the seas. What many players and even expert critics complain is that there is a lack of content in the game. Becoming the most feared pirate in the game is not a very specific task. Although it may sometimes seem that this title is an "unfinished" title, don't give up on it and give it a try. You must play this game if:
  • Want A Game About Quality Pirates
  • Interested in Open Sea Navigation

7. Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive is one of the most different exclusives on the list. He is a third person shooter set in the fictional city of Sunset City. The player takes control of a former employee of a beverage manufacturer. This company, FizzCo, did not follow safety protocols when producing its products. As a result, their main drink, Overcharge Delirium XT, became so toxic that it turned customers into monsters. The goal, therefore, is to clean up this "dirt" left by FizzCo. The protagonist can be customized any way the player wants at the beginning of the game . He has access to many types of weapons and has other capabilities at his disposal, such as jumping, stunts and parkour techniques to counter enemies. Enemies can be humans, FizzCo robots, and the ODs, the mutant monsters the drinker has become. There is a narrative line that serves as the backdrop for the player's adventures through Sunset City. Although interesting, it is not the most important aspect of the game. Sunset Overdrive's cartoony look and all the fighting humor are its strengths. Those who do not give up in a multiplayer mode will also find it in this game. Sunset Overdrive also has a style meter whose bar is filled as the player performs incredible moves at various times in the game. You must play this game if:
  • Enjoy a humorous shooter experience instead of seriousness
  • Want an action game with vast choice of weapons.

8. Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest is an art game. Done all in 2D, it has very beautiful, drawn graphics, almost like a great moving watercolor. This makes it the least "commercial" game on this list, mainly because its gameplay is quite simple, giving even greater attention to narrative and visual aspects. There are two protagonists, forming a pair. Sein is the light and eyes of the Spirit Tree, while Ori is a guardian spirit. Sein is capable of launching flames to destroy enemies and objects that are in the way. Ori is already more responsible for movement, as it climbs, jumps and jumps. This title is easy to play and does not require much skill from players. The main goal is to bring splendor to the forest in which the characters live. Restoring and restoring the ecosystem requires the player to recover the three elements that balance the game world : heat, water and wind. Ori and the Blind Forest brings all their value precisely in this quest to balance nature. It is a beautiful game not only visually, but also in everything it conveys to players during gameplay . Well worth the purchase! You must play this game if:
  • Enjoy more artistic games
  • Want a game focused on an ecological theme

9. Halo 5: Guardians

The fifth game of the successful Halo franchise is the first not to be rated for larger. But that's not why Halo 5: Guardians is less explosive and harsh than previous titles. In it, Master Chief disappeared on a mission. Now Fire Team Osiris needs to find it and capture it. Thus, the game plot follows two different narrative lines. In terms of gameplay, new mechanics were introduced in place of others. Armor skills, for example, cease to exist, giving way to Spartan abilities. All equipment of the soldiers, but mainly the armor received improvements. The movement system is now more fluid and allows more flights, jumps and attacks using energy released by this armor. In fact, these new features depend on the context. Evasion, defense or attack will trigger specific armor moves. In general terms, Halo 5: Guardians doesn't innovate much. Fighting continues with the same frenzied intensity, and Master Chief remains the same powerful soldier as ever. The narrative follows the events of Halo 4 , but it doesn't bring much insight either. However, if you want action in the best franchise style, you must surely acquire that title.
  • Enjoy the Halo series games
  • Likes technology war games

10. Forza Horizon 4

If you thought that on this list of Xbox One exclusives there wouldn't be at least one Forza series title , rest assured. Not only do we bring one, we possibly bring one of the best racing games ever created. With an open world system that seeks to represent some UK locations, there are over 450 licensed cars to choose from for the virtual drivers in Forza Horizon 4 .

The game has a seasons change system. It is fixed, meaning that all players on a server are exposed to the same weather at the same time. Each season lasts one week, speaking in real time. Players also have the opportunity to buy garages that provide items and cars. Meeting the daily, weekly and monthly challenges also guarantees new vehicles. There are a number of ways and challenges in which players can engage to compete for unique prizes. Additional content can be downloaded, also providing new vehicles. Along with Forza Motorsport 7 , Horizon 4 is one of the most celebrated racing titles of all consoles. The gameplay options are many. They cater to all types of pilots. So whether you're an experienced virtual driver or not, purchasing this game is almost a must for anyone with an Xbox One!
