New Homefront: The Revolution Gameplay and Details Revealed

Aug 04, 2015 - 3:35 PM - by Maura

Deep Silver’s Homefront: The Revolution was another game that looked incredibly impressive at Microsoft’s gamescom presentation. And while there’s still no exact release date confirmed for the game, it was revealed that it will be launching sometime in Spring 2016.

The idea of getting to play as part of a revolutionary movement in a full-blown guerrilla war in an occupied United States is certainly very intriguing, with the action taking place in the ruined city of Philadelphia, in the grip of brutal military control. Surveillance drones, armoured patrols and police violence are all a part of everyday life on the mean streets of the city that was the birthplace of American independence.

As part of the Resistance Cell guerrilla force, heavily outnumbered and outgunned, the player must use hit and run tactics, ambushes and infiltration in order to turn the tide in the revolution’s favour.

Here are some of the game’s key features:
• Explore a living, breathing open world - experience true open world gameplay in a first person shooter, brought to life with astonishing CRYENGINE-powered visuals
• Wage Guerrilla Warfare - this is no linear shooter; learn the art of guerrilla warfare and use ambush, infiltration and hit and run tactics against your foe in thrilling un-scripted firefights
• Build the Resistance - recruit revolutionaries to the cause, establish bases and safe-houses, capture and customise a deadly arsenal, and build improvised, homebrew weapons for the perfect Guerrilla Tool Kit
• Ignite the Revolution - from oppressed citizen to revolutionary leader, an epic single-player campaign tells the story of the second War of Independence. The dynamic, evolving world responds to the player’s actions as an oppressed nation rises up in defiance against the occupation
• Online Co-Op - take the battle online, form a Resistance Cell with your friends and earn your reputation as Heroes of the Revolution

We Happy Few Announced for Xbox One

Aug 04, 2015 - 2:26 PM - by Maura

One game that really made me sit up and take notice during Microsoft’s gamescom presentation was Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few, which ID@Xbox director Chris Charla announced would be coming to Xbox One in 2016, after an Xbox Game Preview this winter.

Set in a drug-fuelled retro-futuristic city in an alternative-history 1964 England, We Happy Few is a first-person game that takes place in a procedurally generated fully 3D city, which you have to escape before society totally breaks down. It looks like a combination of System Shock II, Bioshock, Outlast and A Clockwork Orange!

Here are some of the game’s key features:
• A procedurally generated world: Each time you die or beat the game, your next adventure through Wellington Wells will be different. Forget about relying on the city's layout to escape!
• A sophisticated suspicion system: The inhabitants of Wellington Wells expect you to behave in very specific ways—if they suspect you're not taking your Joy, they'll quickly identify you as a Downer.
• Frenzied combat: Downers aren't very popular in Wellington Wells. In fact, Wellies tend to get a bit violent whenever one walks by.
• Twisted survival mechanics: In this urban setting, avoiding the Wellies' fury often means hiding in plain sight.
• An elaborate crafting system: Salvage supplies and Joy-tainted food to stay alive, but be careful not to overdose!
The PC version of We Happy Few received $334,754 in Kickstarter funding, way surpassing its $250,000 goal. The game’s developer, Compulsion Games is a small, 13-people studio in Saint-Henri, Montreal; its first title was the gorgeous and atmospheric Contrast, released in 2013. This looks even better!

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility to Launch in November With 100 Games

Aug 04, 2015 - 1:53 PM - by Maura

Having first revealed the news about backwards compatibility coming to Xbox One at E3 back in June, Microsoft today took the opportunity to reveal more details about the feature during its gamescom presentation.

Head of Platform Engineering at Microsoft, Mike Ybarra, announced that Xbox One backwards compatibility would launch in November with 100 Xbox 360 titles and Games With Gold support.

He then revealed that since Microsoft announced Xbox One backwards compatibility at E3 this year, fans have cast more than 3 million votes in total for the Xbox 360 games that they want to be able to play on Xbox One.

Xbox One preview members have already been playing Xbox 360 backwards-compatible games on their Xbox One consoles, logging more than 83 years of playing time together.

Ybarra also announced that Gears of War and Shadow Complex are the newest titles to be playable on Xbox One today via backwards compatibility.

And finally, Microsoft couldn't resist taking a little dig at the competition by reminding us all that Xbox One will be the only next-gen console to offer free backwards compatibility from November, with all future Xbox 360 Games with Gold titles playable on Xbox One.

Microsoft Announces DVR Capabilities Coming to Xbox One in 2016

Aug 04, 2015 - 1:39 PM - by dgstorm

Microsoft continues to push the envelope on just how versatile and capable the Xbox One is. Obviously, the biggest news before the Gamescom event was that Microsoft was bringing backwards compatibility to the Xbox One so folks can play a slew of Xbox 360 games on their newer console. Today at Gamescom, Microsoft dropped another bomb-shell that will hit next year. They plan to bring full-featured DVR capabilities to the Xbox One!

Here's the quote with more details,

The feature, which will not require a subscription of its own, will allow Xbox One owners to "record free-to-air TV, schedule recordings and take it on the go," said Ybarra. Microsoft released a digital TV tuner for Xbox One in North America this past spring; a similar device had been available in Europe since last fall. The tuner can be used to watch over-the-air TV through an antenna. It's unclear if the Xbox One's DVR functionality will also work with cable/satellite TV.

The Xbox One records in the background, and if the system's power settings are switched to "instant-on," recordings can occur while the person is away from their console. Using the Xbox app in Windows 10, all recorded TV shows can be streamed to Windows 10 devices. In addition, users can download recordings to a device and take them wherever they want.

Microsoft Unveils More of “Greatest Lineup in Xbox History” at Gamescom 2015

Aug 04, 2015 - 12:32 PM - by Maura

As many of you will doubtless know if you watched it, Microsoft delivered an incredibly impressive 90-minute-plus press briefing at gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany today. There were many, many highlights, and I’m sure you’ve all got your favourites, and Xbox Wire has done a great job rounding up the best bits.

Possibly the two biggest reveals of the day were the announcement of Halo Wars 2 right at the very end of the show, as well as some very brief, tantalising footage, as well as a big segment on Quantum Break, which was one of the first Xbox One games to be announced, but seems to have taken the longest of all of that first wave of Xbox One games to actually get a release date! Well now that mystery is finally over, with the reveal that the game would be released on April 5, 2016!

Introducing the worldwide exclusive Quantum Break gameplay footage, Xbox head Phil Spencer said that it is one of Remedy’s best ever games, and it certainly impressed on first viewing. And more surprises were in store when Remedy’s Creative Director Sam Lake was joined onstage by Shawn Ashmore, Quantum Break lead actor.

Here’s more of what was covered during a jam-packed press conference:
• 343 Industries signaled the return of Halo eSports with the Halo World Championship, kicking off this fall with the biggest investment in Halo eSports history – a $1 million prize pool.
• Crystal Dynamics gave fans their first look at one of the expansive hubs gamers will be able to explore in the highly anticipated Rise of the Tomb Raider, before showing off Lara’s new guerilla combat skills and the awe-inspiring Prophets Tomb, filled with secrets to be discovered when the game releases this November, exclusively on Xbox.
• Turn 10 Studios announced four additional tracks coming to Forza Motorsport 6, each built from the ground up for this generation – Circuit of the Americas, Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Sonoma Raceway and Germany’s famous Hockenheimring – as well as all-new Forza Race Leagues that offer competitive 24-player multiplayer on dedicated servers.2
• Electronic Arts shared a look at FIFA 16, detailing the full roster and new features coming to FIFA Ultimate Team Legends, and reminded fans that EA Access members3 will get exclusive early access to the game beginning Sept. 17, only on Xbox One.
• Gamers who purchase Square Enix and Avalanche Studios’ upcoming open-world action adventureJust Cause 3 on Xbox One will exclusively receive Just Cause 2.4
• Ubisoft provided a look at the German CTU featured in its upcoming multiplayer shooter Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Gamers who purchase the game on Xbox One will exclusively receive both Rainbow Six Vegas and Rainbow Six Vegas 2.4
• Oxeye Game Studio, co-founded by Minecraft Lead Developer Jens Bergensten, Daniel Brynolf and Pontus Hammarberg, will

Scalebound for Xbox One Brings a Huge Helping of JRPG Flavor

Aug 04, 2015 - 10:41 AM - by dgstorm

Fans of JRPG games know that the Playstation usually has a wider variety of that style of game than the Xbox. Furthermore, JRPG style games are rarely exclusive to the Xbox One (whether timed exclusive or not). Platinum Games aims to change that with a hot new title that was shown off at Gamescom today. It's called Scalebound, and it let's your charcter team up with a Dragon to lay waste to your enemies! It has that subtle mixture of fantasy and sci-fi that make JRPG's so loveable. The game also looks action-packed and funny as the two protagonists argue like BFFs as they destroy their enemies.

Scalebound could be the first real JRPG for Xbox One that really pushes the perception boundaries of what is available on either console. What do you guys think?
