1These are the Best Single-Player Games on Xbox


While Microsoft’s first-party line-up is admittedly more multiplayer-focused, those who enjoy a good single-player game are still well catered for whether they own an Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S.

In fact, Xbox’s family of consoles is home to many of the best single-player games available right now. Thanks to third-party support from the likes of Square Enix and Capcom, there are loads of games playable on both Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles that don’t require you to play with others. And thanks to Xbox Game Pass, you can gain access to quite a number of them with one affordable monthly payment. (Psst! Want to see more single-player games on Xbox that you can play via Game Pass? Check out our list here.)

With thousands of games now available on Xbox platforms, however, simply working out which ones offer a solid single-player experience is a task, let alone the best. So hopefully we can help. Here’s a list of the best single-player games on Xbox. One or two of them might have online features, or even a multiplayer mode. But first and foremost they offer a single-player campaign that’s worthy of your time.
