    "This isn't the right page to get Kerbal for XBox One, but it is one of the best sandbox survival games out there. It's not like a lot of this kind of game in terms of what the sandbox and 'survival' mean, but you are ultimately quite free in the development of your space program. If you want to build a house and raise some animals, this might not be your cup of tea, but if you want to build spaceships, there's no better game."

    "I really like Factorio. It's kind of hard to start out because there are no real instructions so I played the tutorial over and over until I felt like I had it down pat. Factorio increases in difficulty the further you get in the game and you get to build and design factories. I recommend this game to those looking for a cool survival game."

    "I think that Just Cause 3 is a good candidate for one of the better survival games on Xbox One. I am a Playstation player myself, but I have watched my younger brothers play this game on their system and they seem to enjoy it immensely. Also, it was developed by square/enix and I think that they are one of the most competent game development companies out there and have been for over two decades now."
