Phasmophobia  on xbox

Microsoft's Xbox Games Showcase Extended has a few surprises up its sleeve. We have already reported on the upcoming High on Life DLC High on Knife, along with some upcoming new content and gameplay modes for Hi-Fi Rush. However, we also got treated to some more new games coming to Xbox consoles, along with some new trailers and deeper dives into some first and third-party games.

Phasmophobia is coming to Xbox this August - Developer Kinetic Games launched Phasmophobia in 2020 for the PC, and it's become a cult hit, with up to four players investigating spooky settings to find some ghosts. Today, it was announced that the game is coming to Xbox consoles in early access in August (it's also coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation PS VR2 as well) and it will include cross play support.

Go Mecha Ball announced - This cool looking indie game from Whale Peak Games and Super Rare Originals will be an Xbox and PC exclusive when it launches in early 2024. Here's a quick summary:

Switch between a gun-toting walking mech and an agile, rolling ball while blasting your way through four distinct worlds, filled with angry sons of glitches, relentless boss battles and increasingly wacky tools and obstacles! Unlock several dozen new weapons, abilities and upgrades alongside four unique mechs in a never-ending explosion of punchy, acrobatic action that heralds a new generation of physics-based, 3D platform roguelite fun!
