Microsoft Officially Announces Pre-Orders and Pre-Download for Destiny on Xbox One

Aug 29, 2014 - 2:42 PM - by dgstorm

We have the official announcement of Destiny pre-orders and pre-downloads for the Xbox One. This comes directly from Microsoft. Here's the full quote with the details,

To say that we’re excited for Destiny would be a bit of an understatement. From the moment developer Bungie’s open world first-person shooter hit Xbox One as a beta, we were hooked. In recent weeks, we’ve broken down the different Destiny character classes, took a closer look at the game’s weapons, and went to the moon for some multiplayer action. Destiny just can’t come soon enough, and we’ve ensured you can hit the ground running on September 9.

We are pleased to announce that Destiny is available for pre-order and pre-download. To celebrate the launch of the game, the following two Destiny game bundles are available for pre-order globally, starting today, through the Xbox Store on the console or online at store.xbox.com:

Xbox One Destiny Pre-Order Edition, available starting today for $59.99, including the standard game, plus access to the Vanguard Armory and Emblem pre-order bonus
Xbox One Destiny Digital Guardian Edition, available starting today for $89.99, including the standard game, plus access to the Vanguard Armory and Emblem pre-order bonus, an exclusive Ghost Shell, Player Ship, and Player Emblem, and the Destiny Expansion Pass – an online pass for two upcoming Destiny Expansions featuring all new storylines, new cooperative and competitive activities, and new weapons, armor, and gear to earn

Here’s how it works. When a title becomes available for digital pre-order in the Xbox Store, select “Pre-purchase” to buy and download the game. You will be charged the full amount upon transaction and may use any supported payment method, including an existing Microsoft account balance or credit card. The game will download, along with any updates issued before the release date, so the game is up-to-date and ready to play. Then, when the game is officially released to the Xbox Store, timed with local launch availability, simply go to the game in My Games & Apps, go to your pre-pinned tile, or say “Xbox, go to Destiny” to start playing. Titles will be available after midnight local time on the release date in your corresponding country, though some countries with multiple time zones will align to one release time. For example, in the United States, Destiny will be available for play at 12:01 AM PT on its release day.

Similar to other digital downloads, you will need a consistent Internet connection to download a pre-ordered game and your Xbox One will need to be turned on or in connected standby (Instant On) mode. Of course, you can check the download progress at any time in your download queue, My Games & Apps, or on the game details page. And if you have multiple games loading simultaneously, you can prioritize titles, pause, and resume downloads in your queue.

More titles will follow with pre-order and pre-download support in the coming months, so stay

Microsoft Announces Lockout Multiplayer Map for Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Aug 29, 2014 - 10:00 AM - by Maura

Microsoft has today announced via Xbox Wire that Lockout is the fourth of fifth re-imagined classic Halo 2 multiplayer maps for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, along with the previously announced Ascension, Coagulation, Zanzibar and Sanctuary.

Lockout is set in an abandoned Forerunner research lab in the icy mountains of Delta Halo, and features fast-paced, close-quarters combat in the narrow hallways and vertical levels.

There are a total of three levels to explore, with specific jumping points that can help the savvy player to get their hands on power weapons as quickly and efficiently as possible, as well as ambush your opponents.

The re-imagined app also has some brand new features, according to Certain Affinity president Max Hoberman, who was one of the original lead designers of Halo 2.

“Lockout was hands-down the most popular small arena-style map in Halo 2. We're thrilled to be bringing this fan-favorite back, and are paying close attention to the details and subtleties that made the original great while also making a couple of very careful, very calculated enhancements. Most prominent among these are a bit of cover added to the ‘Elbow,’ the long walkway connecting the grav lift to the sniper tower, and a dynamic element that should help counter an entrenched group of enemies. Of course this can be disabled in Forge for players who want a near-match of the original experience.”

Xbox One SmartGlass App Updated With Gameplay Recording and TV Streaming

Aug 28, 2014 - 12:04 PM - by Maura

Microsoft has today updated its Xbox One SmartGlass app with some new features that really highlight the importance Microsoft is now placing on gameplay recording and TV streaming, with the former in particular becoming more and more popular.

9to5 Mac reports that the new features were originally rolled out in beta form, but are now available to all users of the app.

One of the most popular features included in the update is bound to be the ability to stream live TV to the SmartGlass app on your iPhone or iPad from the Xbox One. However, Microsoft cautions that Xbox One owners in some territories might have to be patient, as this particular feature will not be available immediately in all territories, with 29 markets to be added eventually.

The other major feature included in the update is the ability to record gameplay straight from the app via the Game DVR record button.

Other more minor features of the update include threaded conversations and various bug fixes.

Microsoft Announces Standalone Kinect for Xbox One

Aug 28, 2014 - 4:17 AM - by Maura

Microsoft has announced via Xbox Wire that it is to launch a standalone version of the Xbox One Kinect sensor on October 7.

Microsoft says that it has made this move in order to accommodate those people who bought the Kinect-less Xbox One console and then decide at a later date that they would like to add the Kinect, maybe because they have purchased a new game that uses the Kinect sensor in a specific way.

The standalone Kinect sensor will be available at retailers for $149.99, and will come with Harmonix’s Dance Central Spotlight included as a free digital download, complete with a soundtrack of 10 new tracks.

Microsoft goes on to reiterate its belief that “Xbox One is better with Kinect, offering unlimited possibilities, and we’re seeing our fans use Kinect for Xbox One every day, with billions of voice commands since launch. Only with Kinect can you quickly navigate by using popular voice commands such as ‘Xbox On,’ Xbox Broadcast’ and ‘Xbox Record That.’”

Microsoft also notes that the incredibly popular Twitch, Game DVR, and Upload services are “better with Kinect,” specifically in terms of “voice broadcasting, recording gameplay and Natural Voice search via Bing.”

BioWare Announces Cooperative Multiplayer for Dragon Age: Inquisition

Aug 27, 2014 - 2:56 PM - by Maura

BioWare has announced the inclusion of a cooperative dungeon-crawling multiplayer mode in the forthcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition.

The new cooperative mode has been created alongside the single-player campaign, and represents the first time that gamers can play with their friends in a Dragon Age game. The four-player cooperative quests will be separate from the single-player open-world story mode.

“For Dragon Age: Inquisition, a special team of veteran developers from the Dragon Age and Mass Effect franchises created fun, fast-paced multiplayer gameplay that requires strategic teamwork on top of Inquisition’s party-based combat and extensive loot and crafting system,” said Aaryn Flynn, General Manager, BioWare. “It was early in the game’s development that we realized how much fun fans of our series were having, with so many players teaming up in Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer mode. We can’t wait to give Dragon Age fans an even bigger and deeper experience.”
The multiplayer mode will see four players teaming up to face various multiplayer quests and objectives, exploring dungeons, and vanquishing their enemies. Players can collect loot, salvage items, craft weapons and armour, and unlock new characters.

Up to 12 characters will be available to unlock at launch, from the three Inquisition classes of Legionnaire, Reaver, and Mage, with each one having a specific role in multiplayer combat.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will be available on November 18, 2014.
