Must-have Xbox One exclusives may have been thin on the ground last year, but things are looking up for Microsoft's line of consoles.
In late 2017, the computing titan rolled out the world's most powerful gaming system, the Xbox One X, and killer content to put it through its paces is in the pipeline.
Although games like Forza Motorsport 7, Tacoma and Cuphead offered compelling reasons to side with Team Xbox, it's fair to say the PlayStation 4 trumped its bitter rival on the exclusives front. Determined to ensure this won't be the case over the next 12 months, Microsoft and its development partners are cooking up a delicious batch of first-party titles that should wipe the smug grins off PS4 owners' faces and maybe even encourage a number of them to jump ship.
With games like God of War and Spider-Man bolstering Sony's 2018 arsenal, Microsoft needs to be at the top of its game, but a quick glance at its release slate suggests competition will be intense in the software market going forward.
Whether you happen to own a shiny new One X, the S model or the original console, these are the exclusive titles that should be on your radar this year.
