The Tomb Raider reboot back in 2013 revitalized the long running series and returned the famed archeologist to peak gaming prominence. Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced at last year’s E3, but we only saw the unfaltering heroine scarred from her traumatic experience in Yamatai. But this time we see that Lara has gotten back on that horse and is on a brand new adventure in Siberia. Lara, accompanied by Jonah Maiava, is in search of an ancient city called Kitezh, which Lara believes to hold the secrets to immortality.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is available for preorder now and will arrive on store shelves exclusively on Xbox One this November 10th, 2015.
Microsoft’s new focus on supporting PC gaming has also influenced the direction Microsoft is taking the Xbox One, and it’s for the better. Fallout 4 has now announced that mods will work on Xbox One right out the box which could pave the way for more titles to follow suit. With the Xbox Game Preview, now Xbox players can help indie developers build and improve their game by granting early access, much like Steam Early Access, but with an Xbox twist.
Players who see a game they are interested in can play a free trail of the title before they pay. If you like what you experienced, you can support the developer by purchasing early access versions of the game and can give feedback to help shape the final release. Games like The Long Dark is actually available to try out right now as you can gain early access today! They have also announced that Day Z will also come to Xbox Game Preview later this year.
One of my favorite series is making a return and we call start being drawn to death again like a moth to a flame early next year!
What we can assume is that in some form of continuity, Dark Souls III will take place in the same universe as the previous Dark Souls title, but perhaps take place in the far future. The series started with the beginning, Lord Gwyn began the Age of Fire and brought about prosperity, but soon the Curse of the Undead spread across all that the light touched. From that point on, it had been debated and discussed time and again whether or not that Dark Souls even has a “Good Ending” to begin with, and so brought about even deeper interpretations of the lore.
From Lordran to Drangleic, the settings were vastly different, set in different times, separated by centuries of conflict and war. What they had in common however was the Curse, the mark that the Undead bear, and perhaps even the journey that these choosen undead undergo in both games. Will these connections finally be explained in Dark Souls III? Or are you even playing as an inflicted Undead?? We do not know any of the answers to these questions, just that only embers remain.
But what isn’t so ambiguous and shrouded in mystery is that Hidetaka Miyazaki is back as Dark Souls III’s director! His being involved with the game is a surefire guarantee that this will be an adventure of a lifetime… or countless deaths.
Launching on September 15th, Turn 10’s stunning racing franchise returns with Forza 6. With more than double the cars since it’s last game (450 opposed to 200), 26 destinations, and finally, day/night races that hint to possible dynamic weather during races, is all running at 1080p at 60 fps. All of it looks beautiful.
EA Access Free to All Xbox One Owners This Week, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Gameplay RevealedJune 15th, 2015
EA’s Peter Moore took a moment of his time to come up on stage to announce a few things regarding the Xbox exclusive service, EA Access. First, Titanfall and Dragon Age Inquisition were making their way for members to download and play as much as they want and for a cheaper price. Secondly, as a way for players to try out their service, EA is offering a full week of EA access for free to all Xbox LIVE Gold members.
Afterwards, we got to check out the premier of Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 multiplayer gameplay called “Graveyard Ops” and four new zombie classes.
Fallout 4 had a huge segment at Bethesda’s conference last night and I’m still recovering from what was a hefty Fallout info binge. Executive Producer of Bethesda Game Studios, Todd Howard, caught Xbox audiences up with the goodness they may have missed yesterday. While that’s all fine and dandy, the biggest surprise was that Fallout 3 will come with copies of Fallout 4 exclusively for Xbox One. Even more mind-blowing is the ability to take Fallout 4 PC mods and add them to the Xbox One version of the game!
What was shown at Bethesda’s E3 conference last night was too much for even my mind to fully comprehend. Now that mod have entered the equation, what we can expect is the most ambitious Fallout game ever with near endless replay value!
If an onslaught of new Xbox game announcements wasn’t enough, how about adding a new Xbox One controller that you can change out different components, map buttons, and swap the sticks or D-pad? If you’re serious about gaming and want to play with the best controller that has limitless customization possibilities, the Xbox Wireless Elite Controller is what you are looking for.
Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, took a moment to walk up stage to reinforce the fact that Xbox is committed to bring quality games, experiences, and continues to listen to feedback. Emphasizing that its fans are influential to making Xbox a better gaming console and that a certain feature that has been requested for a long time has been in the works.
As Mr. Spencer hints at that very feature, audience members become restless. Then it was finally announced, Xbox One now will have backwards compatibility to play Xbox 360 games, and the room filled with thunderous cheers and applause for what so many players wanted since the beginning of this generation. With this new feature, the Xbox One will add more than hundreds of playable titles in downloadable form and for those who own retail copies. And while using the Xbox One, players will, of course, be able to do everything from snapping apps to taking screenshots just like they normally would, and with a Windows 10 device, you can steam 360 games onto them.
Easily one of the biggest news announced so far this E3, the Xbox One shook up the gaming world and made a smart move. With a quick jab at Sony stating that they “won’t charge you to play the games you already own” – the crowd erupted in celebration. The tide has turned toward Xbox’s favor, but the day has only just begun.
Xbox Preview members will be able to test out the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility function today, and will be available to others this holiday.
Exclusive to Xbox One, this new IP from Mega Man and Mighty No. 9 creator, Keiji Inafune, “Recore” was debuted today with a trailer introducing the main protagonist and her robotic canine companion.
Not much else is known about the game, except for its 2016 launch window. We’ll keep you updated on any more news regarding Recore as new info arises.
