As October 2018 officially gets underway, the floodgates have officially opened on video game releases. The peak months have finally arrived, and there are some blockbuster titles coming to the Xbox One such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Fallout 76, and Black Ops 4. Problem is, not all of these are exactly suitable for kids.
Fortunately, we’re here to give you a helping hand. We’ve pulled out the best-looking Xbox One kids games releasing in October 2018 that could be worth a buy for younger players. They’ll offer all the challenge and action that they love in video games, without the graphic violence, bad language, or sexual content. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the best Xbox One kids games of October 2018.
Best Xbox One Kids Games of October 2018
LEGO DC Super-Villains
Everyone’s played the hero more times than they can count at this point. Be it in one of LEGO’s Marvel or DC-based adventure games, or just in video games in general. Well, the folks over at Traveller’s Tales decided enough was enough, and so LEGO DC Super-Villains was born.
Serving as a spin-off of sorts to the LEGO Batman trilogy, LEGO DC Super-Villains puts players in the roles of iconic DC villains for the first time. With the Justice League missing and Earth in dire need of protection, the Injustice League steps up, led by the Joker.
Expect all of the block-building and bolt-grabbing action that the LEGO series is known for, albeit with a more evil twist. Of course, it’s all in LEGO, and it’s a kids game, so there’s nothing too sinister here.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
It’s been a while since we saw a toys-to-life game released, with both Disney Infinity and LEGO Dimensions having officially come to the end of their life cycles. That’s not stopping Ubisoft from having a go, though, with Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
At the beginning of Starlink, the player’s mothership crashes into a nearby planet after being ambushed by the Forgotten Legion. Intent on using an ancient technology for their own personal gain, the Forgotten Legion is a constant threat to the Atlas star system, and so it’s down to you to save the day.
The toys-to-life element of the game comes in the form of the player’s ship. A small, modular, real-life toy ship can be customized by purchasing different parts and switching them out on the fly. Doing so grants different stats and abilities to help you save the star system from the evil clutches of the Forgotten Legion.
If you’re looking for something a little more action-focused and slightly more mature, Starlink is looking like a solid pick. Just be aware, in order to get the most out of the game, you may need to invest in additional ship, weapon, and pilot parts.
