Xbox One users are looking at an apparently great lineup this week with the upcoming release of some console exclusives. Reports have detailed the game set to launch within Feb. 20 to Feb. 24, 2017. Microsoft exclusive "Halo Wars 2" by Creative Assembly will most likely give fans their RTS game fix this week, while other notable titles like "A Pixel Story" and "Shift Happens."

Thumb Sticks notes that fans might want to take advantage of Curve Digital's special promotion, which runs until March 9, 2017. Players can grab up to 10 indie games for only $20, which include games like "Thomas Was Alone," "The Swapper," "OlliOlli" and more. Other supposedly interesting games are "Chime Sharp" and "Forma.8."

Tuesday will reportedly see two games released for the Xbox One, which are "Halo Wars 2" and "Vaccine." "Halo Wars 2" is lightheartedly described as an RTS game for fans of the "Halo" series and an RTS fan's "Halo." Unlike most RTS games, it is supposedly more accessible and not as complicated. Meanwhile, "Vaccine" is survival horror game that features procedurally-generated maps and sports PS1-era graphics, which seems like a tribute to the original "Resident Evil" game.
