Neverwinter, not part of the previous Neverwinter Nights series, bring the Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG experience to Xbox One this week.

Neverwinter promises to ‘create classic Dungeons & Dragons adventures’ along with a fully optimised player experience for the new-gen console.

The fast-paced action gameplay of Neverwinter has been mapped to the Xbox One controller, giving adventures the ability to move around the battlefield and cast powerful spells with ease.

Gamers will also be able use their Xbox One friends list to find and party up with others as they explore iconic locations of the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

Ride

After a slight delay last month, petrol heads will finally get their hands on the two-wheel racing game, Ride, this week.

Promising all of the major metal from across four categories: Superbikes, Supersports, Naked and Historical Bikes, this is perhaps the game that could come closest to matching the promise that has been missing for motorcycling enthusiasts since 2006.

    Really keen to try Neverwinter. But it all depends on how huge the download is for that, then I really want to get Ride. That game is going to be amazing and is going to look so great on the Xbox One.

      Neverwinter should be great – but I’m assuming there’s going to be A LOT of patches as it launches, although the BETA should’ve polished it up a fair bit. I heard the demo for Ride really underwhelmed a lot of people, so maybe give the demo a shot before buying @thepoizone:disqus
