We've got another exciting addition to add to July 2022's list of new Xbox releases, as it's been confirmed that RimWorld Console Edition will be arriving on July 29th, with pre-orders now available on the Xbox Store.
If you've never heard of it, RimWorld is an immensely popular "sci-fi colony sim driven by an intelligent AI storyteller" on the Steam platform for PC, where it holds an "Outstandingly Positive" rating based on over 100,000 reviews.

Damn, that's a little bit pricer than I was expecting, I'm definitely waiting to get it on sale.
I love the game, but I already have it on steam. I remember that the first time I tried it it was around 9 pm and didn't stop playing it until 4 am, it's THAT kind of game.
@OskarRex Yeah, it's about £10 ($15) more than the PC version is, and likely with less functionality.
And I'm not sure about sales, the developers don't seem to really agree with sales, and the most they've ever discounted the game is 10% off. Despite it being years old on PC at this point. Even now in the Steam Summer sale they only have it set to 10% off.
@Xeno_Aura yeah, now that you mention it, I have never seen it go on a deep discount.
I've gone all Beavis and Butthead with this game's title.
Geeze. Releases like this are why developers wonder why games do poorly.
Been out for years on PC. Cheaper and more functionality on PC.
What motivation do I have to buy a inferior product for more? Especially when the game can be ran on a toaster of a tablet from years ago.
Had been maybe $20, I'd be down to double dip on this. But $40 is a joke.
I haven’t got a PC, so will wait and see on this. PC to console conversions of things like this live or die on the controls. I thought Crusader Kings 3 did a good job.
Not the best name lol
