Microsoft to Release Kinect Adaptor for PC

Oct 23, 2014 - 1:46 PM - by Maura

MCVUK writes today that Microsoft is to release an adapter that will enable you to connect your Xbox One Kinect camera to your PC.

The Kinect Adaptor will be available for $49.99, and can be plugged into the USB 3.0 port of any PC running Windows 8.1. This means that all Kinect v2 sensors, including Kinect for Windows v2 and Kinect of Xbox One now act identically.

At the same time, Microsoft has also given its free Windows SDK 2.0 for Kinect v2 to developers so that they can develop games to use with the Kinect camera.

“These updates are all part of our goal to make Kinect accessible and easy to use for every developer,” said Microsoft. “We created Kinect as a way to make computer interaction more intuitive and to address an increasing desire for technology to be more accessible.

“We are seeing a lot of interest from businesses to bring interactive experiences to their customers that allow people to interact naturally with technology by simply gesturing and speaking. Now, with the ability to commercially deploy the latest Kinect technology in a variety of industries and environments, there is a big opportunity for developers to meet the demand.”

Electronic Sports League App Comes to Xbox One

Oct 23, 2014 - 1:29 PM - by Maura

MCVUK reports that a dedicated Electronic Sports League (ESL) app is now available for Xbox One.

The app enables you to watch live eSports events either on your TV via your Xbox One or on a second screen. You can also use it to match up with potential opponents and also exchange contact information to make it easy to arrange multiplayer matches.

If you’re someone that likes to get involved in eSports tournaments, or even someone who hasn’t yet but is thinking of taking the plunge, then you can also use the app to sign up for tournaments, with the chance to enter major prize-winning ESL Major Tournaments.

Speaking about the ESL Xbox One app, lead Xbox One developer Andreas Hofmann said,

“All of us here at ESL are gamers ourselves, which definitely helped when designing the application. We asked ourselves what we would want to see and what we would want prioritized, and we’re confident that we’ve done our fellow gamers proud.”
You can download the app for your Xbox One in the UK, US, and several other European territories.

Respawn Confirms Update for Titanfall Coming Oct. 23rd; 4 New Modes & More Coming

Oct 22, 2014 - 2:01 PM - by dgstorm

The latest update for Titanfall will be out tomorrow, October 23rd. So says the folks at Respawn themselves. Not only that, but this new update will be a big one. It will include several new features including four new modes. Here's a quote with the full patch notes:

Welcome to our biggest update ever! There’s a lot of cool stuff included in this most recent update and you can learn more about the addition of ranked play in our recent blog update (hyperlink to blog). We’re also trying some experimental changes in this patch, which means we’ll work to fix anything that breaks as soon as possible and we’d love to hear your feedback through our social channels. The goal is to make your experience better than ever and we hope you enjoy this update.

Brand new cooperative game mode – Frontier Defense
Join forces with up to three other players in this cooperative game mode to defend a vital objective from increasingly intense waves of AI combatants.

- You and your team will face down familiar foes as well as the IMC’s newest combat units: hordes of Grunts and Spectres, stealthy Sniper Spectres and Cloak Drones, explosive Suicide Spectres and Nuclear Titans, ranged Mortar Titans, and even melee-resistant Arc Titans!

- Supplement your firepower by earning and deploying stationary turrets around the battlefield.

- Leverage your full arsenal against the IMC without skipping a beat by using the new Loadout Crates near the objective to switch loadouts at will, while refilling ammo and ordnance.

- Pilots who fall in battle are flown back into the fray in a dropship that circles above the action before touchdown. Experienced Pilots always maximize their impact on the struggle below by firing from the side window of the dropship on approach.

- Seasoned players can challenge themselves to beat their best score. Try to earn 3 Map Stars on each map!

- Play in every corner of the Frontier, including the maps introduced in IMC Rising and every previous Titanfall expansion!

Ranked Play
Test yourself! Ranked play will enable you to work your way through an increasingly challenging set of Tiers by out-performing other Pilots in battle. This is not an exclusive mode or playlist and it works in all standard competitive matches.

In order to obtain the metrics we need to finalize the details, this feature will be launching in beta form.

The beta will last at least through October. After the beta, it will be open to all players level 32 or higher. A new season of Ranked Play will begin on the 1st of each month.

Looking for a beta invite? All Gen 10 players will receive beta access, in appreciation of their skill and determination. Gen 10 players may also invite other players to join in the fun. Gen 10 players are given 5 invites to Ranked Play, and 3 more invites per day. We may also expand beta access during this period.

With each victory, Garruk’s deck will improve, and players will unlock cards from Alara that they can use to modify their own deck creations as they hunt across the Multiverse.

As well as this news, Wizards also announced that all card in the original Magic 2015 campaign, Hunt Bigger Game, and the expansion, are entirely earnable via gameplay. Also with the expansion, players who have unlocked access to the game’s first five chapters (Innistrad, Theros, Ravnica, Zendikar, and Shandalar) can now earn Battle Boosters (a.k.a Premium Boosters) by winning multiplayer matches.

Oct 22, 2014 - 11:49 AM - by Maura

Sega has announced that Corporate Lockdown, the first of five add-on packs for Alien: Isolation, will be released on October 28. The pack features three new maps for the game’s Survivor Mode.

Named “Severance,” “Scorched Earth,” and “Loose Ends,” the three new maps challenge players to compete against each other on Alien: Isolation’s online leaderboards, by escaping from the station in the fastest time, or completing various side quests and hidden bonus objectives.

Also new to the game is Gauntlet Mode, with players challenged to get to the top of the Gauntlet Mode leaderboard by completing all maps back-to-back without dying.

Corporate Lockdown will be available to download on October 28, costing $7.99/€6.99/£5.59. Four more packs will be released over the coming months: Trauma, Safe Haven, Lost Contact, and The Trigger.
