Magic Duels “Aether Revolt” Available Now on Xbox One

Aether Revolt, the sixth major expansion in Magic Duels on Xbox One, is all about adding powerful cards, cool new strategies, and a lot of refinements to Xbox One multiplayer. The world of Kaladesh that we introduced in the last Magic Duels expansion is a world of bold optimism. Invention and ingenuity are held in the highest regard. But as they often do in a game about conflict, things have taken a dark turn. The ruling Consulate has restricted aether access, confiscated inventions, and locked up inventors. This doesn’t sit well with the people of Kaladesh, so a revolt is on. And now, it’s time to take the power back in Aether Revolt. When developing this expansion, we wanted... Read more

Gamers Thrown into Real-World Battle for Halo Wars 2

Halo Wars 2, Xbox, and 343 Industries have brought the intensity of battle to gamers through a dramatic real-world combat experience inspired by the Halo universe. Unaware of the test ahead, fans were led into a Halo-themed military command center where a conventional demonstration quickly turned into an onslaught of action and chaos, as the frenetic nature of battle was captured with UNSC unit commanders requesting orders. The new recruits quickly realized that they were in the hot seat, tasked with saving their own lives and their units, with no other tools other than their quick strategic thinking.

I Am Bread Slices Its Way Onto Xbox One Today

At last, video game’s unlikeliest hero has climbed onto Xbox One: I Am Bread is here! In our game, players control a lovable slice of bread with the objective of becoming the greatest version of itself -- toast -- all the while taking care to avoid any hazards on its way to a suitable heat source. With its intentionally tough to master controls (who thought moving bread was easy?), only the most determined players will be able to guide their gluten through various levels in and around an unsuspecting man’s home, while slowly robbing him of his sanity. I Am Bread’s origins were formed during a game jam at Bossa Studios, where the team had just 48 hours to rapidly build and... Read more

Rise and Shine Large Image Games

Rise & Shine Now Available for Xbox One

When we started developing Rise & Shine three years ago we had the intention, as we always do, of making an obsessively polished experience for gamers to enjoy. If we’ve learned anything while working on past projects like Plants VS Zombies, it’s that gameplay is king. In the case of Rise & Shine, we made sure you feel that buttery smooth precision each time you holster Shine, a very talkative gun that doubles as Rise’s companion. We created the game to be challenging at every moment and players are sure to die a lot, but you’ll also get better each step of the way. Trust us, finding your way out of the tricky situations we’ve cooked up is going to feel... Read more
