10 Best Superhero Games For Xbox One Update 04/2024

Disney Infinity 2.0

Sony’s Spider-Man game from Insomniac Games has a shining diamond exclusive that Microsoft doesn’t have. Because of how well it did on the PS4, Sony bought the studio and made it a subsidiary in 2019. This means that if Spider-Man fans want to play as the Marvel hero in the future, they will probably need a Sony console.

Even so, there are still a lot of good third-party and Xbox-only superhero games that fit the idea of what a superhero game should be. Some of them might be a stretch, but they all show what it means to be a video game superhero. All of these games can be played on Xbox consoles, either because they were made for it or because it can play games from other systems.

Guardians Of The Galaxy

Guardians Of The Galaxy

Released: 2021

Developer: Eidos Montreal

Guardians of the Galaxy feels like an apology to fans who bought Square Enix’s 2020 video game Marvel’s Avengers. Marvel’s Avengers wasn’t a bad game, but the best parts were in the story mode for one player.

Because of this, most fans wanted the developers to make a game that was all about the story and not the multiplayer. So, Guardians of the Galaxy comes into play. Not only is it better than the Avengers game, but it’s also a great superhero game on its own. It’s a more focused action game with unlockable skills than its predecessor, which tried to be like a light RPG. It’s a fun game with a great 80s soundtrack, so superhero fans should add it to their collection.

Batman: A Telltale Series – Shadows Edition

Released: 2019

Developer: Telltale Games

If you’ve been playing Rocksteady’s Arkham games, Telltale’s Batman series might be a bit of a shock. As an episode-based graphic adventure game, Telltale’s Batman is all about the story. There are some quick-time events, but your choices will affect how the story ends.

The Shadows Edition includes both the first Telltale Batman game, which came out in 2016, and The Enemy Within, which came out in 2017. But the second game is better because it gives you more meaningful choices, has a better story with more twists and surprises, and shows The Joker in a great way.

Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series

Guardians Of The Galaxy The Telltale Series

Released: 2017

Developer: Telltale Games

Guardians of the Galaxy is a graphic adventure game made by Telltale that came out in 2017. Like their Batman and Walking Dead games, it is more about the story than the action. Once again, player choices matter and can change what happens in the story.

Like Square Enix’s 2021 action game, the story of this game has nothing to do with the MCU, but it feels more like a comic book. Fans of the team won’t be blown away by the designs and animations of the characters, but the story is interesting and has some real surprises throughout the 5 episodes.

Batman: Return To Arkham

Released: 2016

Developer: Rocksteady Studios

The Xbox can be used to play all of the Batman: Arkham games. Even though it is from the last generation, Batman: Arkham City is the best of the three main games.

This set includes both Arkham City and the game that came before it, Arkham Asylum. The first is an open-world Batman game that did the character better than any other video game adaptation before it. It has exciting combat, a good story, and a lot of references that fans will enjoy.

Injustice 2

Injustice 2

Released: 2017

Developer: NetherRealm Studios

The studio that made Mortal Kombat has shown that it knows how to make good stories for fighting games. NetherRealm also showed it could use DC Comics’ characters in the first Injustice game and its sequel.

Injustice 2 is not as dark as Mortal Kombat, but it has a mature tone that fits with the source material. This game knows what it’s doing and stays true to the characters at the same time.

DC Universe Online

Released: 2011

Developer: Dimensional Ink Games

Since 2011, this MMO has been going strong. The only version of DC Universe Online that has been shut down is the PS3 version. Other than that, the game is doing very well.

In the DC universe, you can make your own superhero and then fight with some of the best. Since this is its tenth year, you can be sure that even on the free version, there is a lot to read.

Disney Infinity 2.0

Disney Infinity 2.0

Released: 2014

Developer: Avalance Software

The Marvel characters were the focus of the second game in the Disney Infinity series. About this time, the first Avengers movie was coming to an end and Guardians of the Galaxy was out in theatres.

There were so many characters to choose from, and everyone in the family had a good time. It may be hard to find the game and figures now, but the search is worth it just for the toys.

Marvel’s Avengers

Released: 2020

Developer: Crystal Dynamics

The latest superhero game to come out is Marvel’s Avengers. In fact, it’s now on the Xbox Series X and PS5, which are newer systems. Marvel’s Avengers is a brawler game in the style of Destiny.

It’s been a bit of a controversial game because promises haven’t been kept and updates have made fans angry. Even though the game is now on Xbox Game Pass, you should still check out the single-player content.

Lego Games

Lego Games

Okay, so we can’t just pick one game at this point because there are so many and they’re all pretty fun. These are also good video games that can be played by kids. Overall, you’ll get a sloppy version of a movie or series made out of Legos. Each of these games is pretty funny, and they are all pretty entertaining. As was already said, there are a lot of different Lego-based superhero video games to choose from. You can’t go wrong with Lego games if you want something that is mostly for kids but can still be fun for adults. Some examples of Lego games are Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Lego Marvel’s Avengers, and Lego Batman.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a 2.5D RPG that is played from a third-person point of view. It continues the story from South Park: The Stick of Truth. During a huge war between two groups of superheroes, players take on the role of the “New Kid.” Combat is turn-based, so players can think about what they want to do before they do it. Players will also be able to choose from different character classes. Each class will change a character’s stats, such as making them better at close combat or long-range combat. If you like the South Park series, you can expect the story to be weird and rude.
