Microsoft has trailed behind Sony for most of this current generation, as they lack a decent array of impressive exclusives. This has been the main problem facing the Xbox One since its inception, as there is no reason to select this console if it offers less variety than its competitor. The Xbox 360 benefited from offering a higher performance level compared to the PlayStation 3 so even games available on both consoles played substantially better on Microsoft's device. This has not been the case this generation, with the PlayStation 4 eclipsing the Xbox One in terms of power and games.

Still, this does not mean that Microsoft does not have its own share of exciting titles. Here are three highlights for next month.

'Forza Motorsport 7'

Turn 10 Studios' "Forza" series has developed into one of the highest rated racing franchises in gaming history, if not the highest. Offering an insane amount of cars and 30 tracks, each with customisable settings, there is a huge amount of content for gamers to play through. As with every single entry into the series, "Forza Motorsport 7" will look gorgeous. Turn 10 also added a few different features to improve the gameplay when not on the tracks, like being able to step out of the car when in a garage and to increase the driver customisable options.

Another cool gimmick is the possibility to play music directly from your One Drive account. This is hardly a groundbreaking feature, but "Forza Motorsport 7" will incorporate those songs into the environment, so they'll sound like they are naturally ingrained into the gameplay.

"Forza Motorsport 7" comes out on September 29 for the Xbox One and Windows 10.


For a while, we genuinely start to fear that "Cuphead" might not see the light of day. After impressing audiences during its E3 reveal in 2015, StudioMDHR Entertainment's platformer finally comes out next month. 2D platformers might not be everyone's cup of tea, but few are as visually striking as "Cuphead". Inspired by cartoons from the 1930s, players take on a series of bosses in a desperate attempt to clear a debt with the devil.

From what we have seen, "Cuphead" is a challenging but merciful experience, as the players have infinite lives and they do not lose their weapons when defeated.

'White Noise 2'

Yes, "Destiny 2" comes out next month as well, but everyone already knows about it. But there is another title, which is nowhere near as hyped up, called "White Noise 2." A sequel to "White Noise Online," this is a multiplayer survival game which allows players to either control one of four investigators or the monster. It is similar to "Dead by Daylight" and "Friday the 13th: The Video Game."

A cool gimmick is when a player is killed, they actually came back as a ghost which allows for a whole new range of skills. "White Noise 2" comes out on September 1 and costs only $9.99.
