When it comes to good war games for Xbox One, there is a pretty good amount of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best Xbox One war games, with the help of your votes. 

One of the newest Xbox One games that has you running straight to your enemy is Battlefield V. Released in 2018, the newest installment in the Battlefield series takes a few liberties with its depiction of the war, but is still a very fun game. If you never played Sniper Elite 4, it's a must-play war game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Destiny 2, and This War of Mine.

Not every war game on this list is an Xbox One original - take PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds for example, which came out in early 2017 for PC. However, all these war games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite war game for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
