After wasting our time with their announcement conference and all the backlash former CEO Don Mattrick pulled at E3, Microsoft hasn’t been too kind to the Xbox One. With no official release date announced fans are wondering just when they’ll need to make camp at GameStop stores around the world. We might not know the answer, but at least we know what everyone is going to be playing.

Over at the Gamescom trade fair in Germany, Microsoft announced their line up of games available once the Xbox One hits store shelves. A lot of these titles were already on hand to players, running off PC specs during E3, so none of this should come as a surprise. The official releases are:

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)

Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts)

Call of Duty: Ghosts (Infinity Ward, Activision)

Crimson Dragon (Grounding/Land Ho!, Microsoft Studios)

Dead Rising 3 (Capcom Vancouver, Microsoft)

FIFA 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)

Fighter Within (AMA Ltd., Ubisoft)

Forza Motorsport 5 (Turn 10 Studios, Microsoft Studios)

Just Dance 2014 (Ubisoft Paris, Ubisoft)

Killer Instinct (Double Helix, Microsoft Studios)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (TT Games, Warner Bros. Interactive)

Lococycle (Twisted Pixel, Microsoft Studios)

Madden NFL 25 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)

NBA 2K14 (Visual Concepts, 2K Sports)

NBA LIVE 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)

Need for Speed: Rivals (Ghost Games, Electronic Arts)

Peggle 2 (Popcap, Electronic Arts)

Powerstar Golf (Zoe Mode, Microsoft Studios)

Ryse: Son of Rome (Crytek, Microsoft Studios)

Skylanders: Swap Force (Vicarious Visions, Activision)

Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)

Zoo Tycoon (Frontier Developments Ltd., Microsoft Studios)

Zumba Fitness: World Party (Zoë Mode, Majesco Entertainment)

Are you guys excited yet? We can’t wait for Peggle 2 either, but those other games look just as good, too. Microsoft is at least doing one thing right with this list and catering to all their markets, not just focusing on making the Xbox One the Call of Duty machine. With games for the sports fan, the racer or just the person looking to get their kids into gaming the system might actually be the “all in one experience” we were promised months ago.

Not bad Microsoft, we’ll forgive you for the DRM issues now.
