A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

The next-gen gaming consoles are about to finally go on sale later this month, and we’re starting to get a firm idea of what consumers can expect when they line up to pick up the new devices.

In August, Microsoft released a list of Xbox One games that were supposed to debut alongside the system on Nov. 22. Most of the games on that schedule will still make launch day, but a few won’t. PopCap delayed Peggle 2 to December, and Ubisoft pushed Watch Dogs into 2014.

We reached out to Microsoft, and the company provided us with an updated list of confirmed Xbox One launch-day games. Check it out below:

  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Battlefield 4
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • Crimson Dragon
  • Dead Rising 3
  • FIFA 14
  • Fighter Within
  • Forza Motorsport 5
  • Just Dance 2014
  • Killer Instinct
  • Lego Marvel Super Heroes
  • Lococycle
  • Madden NFL 25
  • NBA 2K14
  • NBA Live 14
  • Need for Speed: Rivals
  • Powerstar Golf
  • Ryse: Son of Rome
  • Skylanders: Swap Force
  • Xbox Fitness
  • Zoo Tycoon
  • Zumba: World Party

In addition to the above games, Microsoft will also release Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason on launch day. This is a trial version of the full Kinect Sports Rivals that is due in the spring.
