Arkane Studios’ Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider will launch September 15 2017 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
2015’s metroid-vania platformer Ori And The Blind Forest was not only stunning to look at, but also a joy to play, and critically praised. No suprise then, that after many months of speculation we’ve finally been treated to a trailer for it’s follow-up, Ori And The Will Of The Wisps.
Ori And The Will Of The Wisps will be available on Xbox One & Windows 10 PC. A release date has yet to be announced.
Undead Labs zombie survival title State Of Decay earned somewhat of a following on Xbox 360 back in 2013 when it laid down the challenge of staying alive in an open-world filled with Zombie hordes and diminishing resources.
Last year Microsoft announced a sequel was in the works, and now, on stage at their 2017 E3 briefing, we’ve had the first look at State of Decay 2 – which introduces co-operative multiplayer for the first time, and is due for release Spring 2018.
Check out the trailer below:
State Of Decay 2 is an Xbox One and Windows 10 PC exclusive.
The oversized controller from the original Xbox console, known as The Duke, is making its way to Xbox One and Windows PC this holiday season, accessory maker Hyperkin has confirmed.
The Duke launched with the original Xbox in 2001/2002, but was replaced by the smaller, more hand-friendly Xbox Controller S worldwide roughly a year later.
The nicknamed “Duke” controller for the original Xbox was big, bold and tough. On June 11, Hyperkin, a video game hardware development company from Los Angeles, announced that – in partnership with Xbox – it is bringing back The Duke for the Xbox One family of devices (Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X) and Windows 10 PCs. Hyperkin’s Research and Development team sought the assistance and the blessing of Seamus Blackley, who played an integral part in the original Xbox team.
The Duke sports a faithful recreation of the original controller’s form-factor with some updated features: a logo display screen, left and right bumpers, and a 9 ft. detachable cable.
Duke’s revival comes at the perfect time too, since Microsoft announced original Xbox games are coming to Xbox One later this year – and they can now be played as intended, hand cramps and all. Hooray.
Dan Greenwalt, Creative Director of Turn 10 Studios, took to Microsoft’s E3 stage alongside a shiny new 2018 model Porsche earlier this week to announce the latest entry in the Forza franchise, Forza Motorsport 7.
Forza Motorsport 7 promises true 4K visuals with HDR at 60fps, all thanks to the power of Xbox One X. We’re also told the game will not only feature the largest collection of vehicles ever – at over 700 – but we’ll also see dynamic weather, and puddles. Fancy.
Given the attention to detail Turn 10 are putting into the game, it’s perhaps no suprise that Forza Motorsport 7 is listed as being ~100GB when downloaded from the Xbox store.
Assuming you’ve got a big enough HDD, Forza 7 will launch October 3rd, 2017.
Xbox One gamers might not have Super Mario Odyssey on the horizon, but with Rare on board at Microsoft, many people hoped they’d see a new Conker or Banjo Kazooie style game from that team at this years E3.
Rare, however, are still feverishly working on Sea Of Thieves, so 3D cartoon platformer duty falls upon Playful, who’ve announced Super Lucky’s Tale as an Xbox console exclusive, due out later this year.
Super Lucky’s Tale is the sequel to 2016’s Oculus Rift exclusive Lucky’s Tale, and is described as a “playground platformer for all ages”.
Join Lucky, the ever-optimistic, energetic, and lovable hero on his quest to find his inner strength and help his beloved sister rescue the Book of Ages from Jinx. Jinx, the scheming and mysterious villain, is trying to reshape the world…but for what reason?
Super Lucky’s Tale launches on Xbox One November 7, 2017. The title is “Xbox One X Enhanced”, and an Xbox Play Anywhere title – meaning it will also be available on Windows PC for those who purchase from the Xbox Store.
Developer 4A Games have revealed the next entry in the Metro series, Metro Exodus.
In stark contrast to previous title’s tunnel-heavy game design, Metro Exodus sees a group of survivors flee the shattered ruins of the Metro system and embark on “an epic, continent-spanning journey across the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness”.
In a story inspired by the Metro 2033 & 2035 novels, Edoxus includes more open non-linear levels than ever before, promising an “immersive, sandbox survival experience” and “thrilling story-line that spans an entire year in the greatest Metro adventure yet”.
Metro Exodus is coming to Xbox One and PC in 2018.
