UPDATE: Wasteland 2 also coming to PS4.

UPDATE 5/03/2015 12.31am: Wasteland 2 is also coming to PS4, inXile has confirmed.

ORIGINAL STORY 4/03/2015 10.04am: Microsoft has confirmed a new list of self-published games headed to Xbox One via its ID@Xbox program, including Kickstarter success Wasteland 2.

The old-school party-based RPG arrives on Xbox One in Game of the Year form, and includes new combat mechanics, voice-overs, and an overhauled lighting system powered by Unity 5.

Indie side-scroller Shovel Knight also heads to Xbox One, after earlier appearances on 3DS, Wii U and PC.

Magic Duels: Origins, a new free-to-play version of Wizards of the Coast's CCG, is also on the way. It's the first time that the series has used a free-to-play model on console, and follows the success of Blizzard's own free-to-play card battler Hearthstone.

All in all, Microsoft has listed around 50 titles currently in the works for its console, including the previously-announced Smite, Cuphead and Goat Simulator.
