The Best Xbox One Space Games

Updated October 8, 2020 968 votes 247 voters 15.3k views17 items

We're ranking the best Xbox One space games, with the help of your votes. One of the more popular Xbox One games that has you exploring the cosmos is Destiny 2. Released in 2017, the newest installment in the Destiny series is both addicting and has great replay value. If you've never played No Man's Sky, it's a must-play space game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include Elite: Dangerous, Prey, and Star Trek Online.

Not every adventure game on this list is an Xbox One original - take Kerbal Space Program for example, which is an outer space flight simulator that came out in 2015. However, all these space games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up all your favorite games, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more astronaut and space exploration games to explore.
