Best Xbox Single Player Games 2022

The Xbox family of consoles is home to an almost unfathomably large collection of solo gaming experiences that, we think it’s fair to say, vary hugely in quality from title to title. As a result, it can be pretty hard to separate the wheat from the chaff without a guiding hand and so, in order to help you decide which single player experiences are worthy of your valuable time and money, we’ve gone ahead and put together a great big list of what we reckon are the very best single player games currently available to play on your Xbox console.

There’s titles here to suit pretty much every pocket and persuasion, from indie gems to AAA blockbusters, racers, puzzle games, horror, survival, action and much, much more besides. If you’re looking for something to get stuck into on your lonesome, we’ve 100% got you covered.

For your convenience, we’ve also gone ahead and highlighted whether or not each and every listing here is currently available on Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service in order to minimise your expenditure and maximise your enjoyment.

So, without further ado, let’s jump in to the very best 75 single player games on Xbox consoles in 2022!

Alan Wake Remastered (Xbox Series X|S)

Release Date: 5th Oct 2021 (UK/EU)

If you’ve never played Alan Wake (he’s a writer don’t you know), then this slick remastered version is the best possible way to experience Remedy’s classic action adventure cheesefest.

For solo players who loves a little bit of (mild) horror, there’s a ton to unpack here with a properly engaging, and massively cheesy, narrative alongside satisfying, if sometimes a tad clunky, exploration and combat gameplay. The remastered enhancements made in this new version bolster the game even further, cementing its position as a guilty gaming pleasure that’s still just as joyous to dig into now as was back in 2010. Did we mention it’s cheesy? Enjoy!

Alien: Isolation (Xbox One)

Publisher: SEGA / Developer: Creative Assembly

Release Date: 7th Oct 2014 (USA) / 7th Oct 2014 (UK/EU)

Creative Assembly and Feral Interactive really set themselves quite the task when they decided to attempt to create an Aliens game that captured the relentless intensity and smothering atmosphere of the original Alien movie. Thankfully, they not only succeeded in 100% nailing it, they ended up making what is arguably the greatest horror game of all time in the process. Yes, Alien Isolation is THAT good.

It’s all about the amazing Xenomorph here, cleverly programmed to go about its business; hunting, barrelling down shafts and vents, reacting to the slightest sound and zeroing in on your location, just like the real thing. Alien Isolation puts you in an exquisite recreation of the movie universe and pits you against the perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility. good luck.

A Plague Tale: Innocence (Xbox One)

Publisher: Focus Home Interactive / Developer: Asobo Studio

Release Date: 14th May 2019 (USA)

With the sequel on the way in the form of A Plague Tale: Requiem, you should definitely check out this 2019 single player action-adventure from Microsoft Flight Simulator developer, Asobo Studio. A Plague Tale: Innocence is set in France during the Hundred Years ‘War, and sees you assume control of teenager Amicia de Rune as she attempts to flee from French Inquisition soldiers alongside her ill brother, Hugo.
