Rocket League is Coming to Xbox One on February 17

(Updated on 2/9 at 3:20PM to include pricing details) Since last December, when we first announced that Rocket League was headed to Xbox One, new and existing fans alike have been asking us WHEN they could expect to see our soccer-meets-driving, sports-action hybrid come to the platform. As you can tell by our headline, we're proud to announce that the answer to that question is next week – it’ll be available beginning on Wednesday, February 17 for $19.99 USD (or its regional equivalent)!

Unravel: What Makes this Puzzling Platformer Unique?

Electronic Arts may be known for juggernauts like Madden NFL, Battlefield, and Dragon Age... but in the case of the all-new Unravel, the publisher knew that it had to stick up for the little guy. During last year’s E3 Expo, Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios, revealed that he was so impressed by the game when he first saw it that he immediately knew EA had to have it. Söderlund had come a long way to see this hidden gem – to Coldwood Interactive, a 14-person indie studio in northern Sweden. And we’re talking way north in a city called Umeå, closer to the Arctic Circle than Stockholm and on the same latitude as Iceland, Siberia, and Alaska. A studio’s... Read more

The Five Biggest Reasons We’re Loving Cobalt

It's finally here: Cobalt, developed by the Oxeye Game Studio team, is a 2D action-platformer/shooter/adventure/arena fighter... and, well, it’s kinda all of those. Check out five of the reasons we’re loving one of the coolest little games of 2016. The Acrobatic, Bullet-time Combat System The defining trait of Cobalt is its combat, which involves a mix of firearms, melee combat, and explosives. When enemies take a shot at your robot, time slows down – allowing you to roll and parry the attacks, and get a few shots out yourself. It all feels like a martial arts film starring a cute little robot guy. The Co-op Story Mode Science-fiction humor and reflex tests abound in... Read more

Getting Up to Speed with Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Black Ice DLC

Get ready for some seasonally appropriate shooting action. Rainbow Six Siege has unleashed its first major content update, and it’s a doozy. Dubbed Operation Black Ice, this frosty downloadable content pack comes with a (free!) new map, two new Operators, and a host of game updates and fixes. Let’s take a look at what’s included. The Map Well, some rich guy is having a real bad day. In Boffin Bay (near Greenland), the luxury yacht Boréal has become fully encased in ice. That’s the premise for Yacht, the new map included with the DLC. The huge pleasure ship boasts four decks, a casino (with a private poker room), a spacious galley, a personal submarine (nonfunctional) and lots... Read more

Uncovering the Secrets of the Swedish Countryside in Unravel

Swedish game developer Coldwood Interactive’s adorable new 2D puzzle-platformer, Unravel, is quite the unusual game. It takes place in its creators’ homeland, where a little red ball of yarn – named, aptly enough, Yarny – explores the Swedish countryside. Yarny is both quirky and tiny, meaning that even mundane objects like chairs and fruit appear huge, let alone the relatively gigantic boulders and trees that pop up along the way. Yarny unravels himself in order to create bridges and traverse gaps that range from small drains to imposing chasms. He can throw the front end of the yarn like a grappling hook, or grab the yarn that trails behind him and attach it to things. This... Read more

Hilarious Hack ‘n Slasher Zombie Vikings Coming Soon to Xbox One

Zombie Vikings! Yeah, that might sound like a silly name at first, but just remember Napoleon Dynamite and his Liger. You simply can’t have too much of two good things. Zombies + Vikings = total niceness! I’m from Zoink, an indie game studio from the cold dark of Sweden. You might have heard about our previous title, Stick It to The Man, but besides zany adventure games we also love couch co-op games and this is our attempt to combine great hack ’n’ slash gameplay with our love of humor and story. Did I mention Zach Weinersmith, creator of the hit comic "Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal", is the writer of the game? He is! In Zombie Vikings, you are sent on an insane mission... Read more

Cooperative Shooter Spareware Coming Soon to Xbox One

Spareware is a cooperative top-down shooter set in a future dystopian metropolis of Helsinki. We’ve designed Spareware to be a game for people who just want a fun little shooter to play while hanging out with friends, without compromising the challenging hardcore gameplay elements. Because of the challenge, you may have to start over multiple times, but it won’t get boring thanks to our procedural world generation system with multiple different archetypes of levels. We’ve always liked to play cool top-down shooters together and when we got the Xbox One, we didn’t find enough games from the genre. Then it hit us. We realized that we should finally do the game we’ve wanted to do... Read more

Save the World Today in Fortified for Xbox One

Inspired by 1950’s pulp fiction, Fortified is a unique blend of bombastic third person shooting, and uncompromising co-op base defense gameplay. We’ve always wanted to make games that marry intense strategic gameplay with great multiplayer action that requires coordination and teamwork; Fortified is the first step in that direction. The dev team here at Clapfoot has been working hard for the past two years to bring it to life on the Xbox One. One of the biggest challenges we faced while developing Fortified was building a co-op multiplayer game with only seven core team members. How do you properly playtest with such limited resources?

Bulkhead Interactive’s Battalion 1944 is Reinventing the WWII Shooter on Xbox One

Two years ago, our team of 21 year olds found a tiny closet of an office and started making Pneuma: Breath of Life, our story-driven first person puzzler that was part of Games with Gold in November. When Pneuma successfully released, we didn’t buy fast cars or houses, instead reinvesting our funds into making two new titles for Xbox One. One of which we’re really excited to be announcing this week! 10 years ago, we were in our bedrooms playing Call of Duty 2, Medal of Honor, and Enemy Territory. Well, now we’re finally announcing Battalion 1944, our homage to the great WWII shooters of the past. Battalion 1944 propels World War II back into the modern gaming spotlight as a... Read more

SuperHot is Bringing Strategic Mayhem to Xbox One Soon

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SuperHot is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. From its origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, and on to its place as an IGF and SXSW Gaming Awards finalist, we’re incredibly grateful to the supporters who have helped to make SuperHot a reality. What started out as a small passion project ended up becoming a 2.5 year-long adventure. SuperHot has... Read more

5 Big Scares in the Resident Evil HD Remasters

Resident Evil has been a gaming staple for more than two decades now – and the medium owes an immense amount of gratitude to Capcom’s horror-infused, zombie-infested third-person action series. Now, Resident Evil didn’t quite invent survival-horror... but it certainly made the term mainstream, and popularized the genre on consoles. And, of course, it made the “big scare” cool; a slew of imitators appeared in the following years, but none of them delivered with quite the same style and panache. Whittling down a list of the five biggest scares in the HD remakes of Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero on Xbox One (also now available in the Resident Evil Origins Collection retail... Read more
