Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (June 11-12)

Welcome to the weekend! Obviously the big focus this weekend for us Xbox fans is the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on Sunday, but in the meantime you can raise your hype levels with lots of new content on your console including a variety of fresh Game Pass games, more Free Play Days titles and a massive Xbox Deals Unlocked Sale!

For me, it’s definitely Assassin’s Creed Origins this weekend. I haven’t had a chance to dig into it properly yet, and I’ve not actually played an Assassin’s Creed game since Syndicate, so I’ve really got a lot of catching up to do. I’ve heard Origins is a great place to start (again), and we gave it an “excellent” 9/10 rating on Series X in our review.

The other game I’m sticking with at the moment is Sniper Elite 5, which again is fresh for me because I hadn’t properly played any of the Sniper Elite titles before this one. I’m really finding it a lot of fun so far (although I’d probably prefer even more of a sniping focus), so I’ll be digging into our collectibles guide over the weekend!

I’ll be digging into yet more Forza Horizon 5 this weekend in the hopes of sweeping the map prior to Xbox’s big showcase on Sunday. The rumour is that Forza Horizon 5’s first expansion is coming soon, and I want to be ready for its arrival!
