It’s a packed day for new releases on Xbox with four new titles launching today so let’s get right down to business. First up is GRIDD: Retroenhanced from Antab Studio. GRIDD: Retroenhancend is an arcade style shoot’em-up with a cyberpunk aesthetic in which the goal is to take down the system AI and the security mainframe. GRIDD takes inspiration from cyberpunk dystopian films and early home computing to create a modern experience. GRIDD: Retroenhanced can be purchased here for $11.99.
Next up is Pressure Overdrive from Chasing Carrots. Pressure Overdrive has players racing, blasting and ramming their way through endless bullets and enemies as players join “La Resistance” to bring down Count Soap and stop him from stealing water. Players are free to customize their steambuggy which will result in new play styles as well as new looks.

After that is Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure from Prospect Games, a physics-platformer that proposes an all new type of postal service. The Global Postal Service was nearing bankruptcy so they created a new system in which packages arrive via self-delivering cardboard boxes. Newbie is one of these self-delivering cardboard boxes and players are tasked with helping Newbie deliver all of the boxes thrown their way. In addition to the single player adventure, there is local multiplayer that allows up to four players to compete in races, battles and challenges.
