Build Your Ideal Golf Society in The Golf Club 2 Today on Xbox One

When we released the original The Golf Club, we had no idea we'd have such an amazing community develop around the game. Whether it was creating courses or competing in tournaments, every single player brought something to the table and it's our community that makes The Golf Club franchise what it is -- and that's exactly what we wanted to capture when we started working on The Golf Club 2. With The Golf Club 2, we wanted to give players the tools they needed to create the perfect golfing experience, without having to leave the game. This led us to build The Golf Club 2 around societies, player-led guilds within the game that allow players of every level to enjoy a seamless community... Read more

Tips for the Aspiring Soldier in Valkyria Revolution, Available Now on Xbox One

Valkyria Revolution is coming out today on Xbox One and we wanted to provide a helpful list of tips to get you started on this action-packed JRPG! But first, we wanted to talk a little bit about the game. Valkyria Revolution is not a sequel to the Valkyria Chronicles series. While you may have a special place in your heart for Welkin, Alicia, and the Edelweiss, Valkyria Revolution is an entirely new entry, so expect things to be different. In fact, “spinoff” would be a good word to describe it because it takes place in a different timeline, continent, and universe than its predecessors. Inspired by the European industrial revolution era, Valkyria Revolution focuses on two very... Read more

Clever Combat and Quirky Characters Collide in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Early on in 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz wakes from a 14-year coma to discover the Nazis have won the war. As we recently discovered during our hands-on session with its sequel, however, his situation is somehow even more dire at the start of this new story. Picking up shortly after the concluding events of its predecessor, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus finds our Hitler-hating hero in such a weakened physical state that he's confined to a wheelchair. More than just a story conceit, B.J.'s unfortunate situation is cleverly woven into the gameplay. To properly experience his pain and suffering, our health was capped at 50—down from the usual 100. In... Read more

Pillars of Eternity Brings a New Generation of Role Playing to Xbox One on August 29

E3 2017: Survival Through Scrounging in State of Decay 2

Like a shot of adrenaline jammed into a barely-beating heart, State of Decay and its definitive Year-One Survival Edition brought new life to the zombie genre. Undead Labs' fresh take on the walking corpse apocalypse proved there was more to surviving than simply filling flesh-craving creeps full of lead. While it afforded fans ample opportunity to put the mutated monsters in their place, its focus on base-building, resource management, rescuing and recruiting survivors, and other RPG-flavored elements separated it from the pack. Next year's State of Decay 2 will build on its predecessor's strong foundation, doubling down on those dynamic simulation elements and presenting players with... Read more

E3 2017: BioWare’s Anthem Brings Players to a World Filled with Mystery, Danger, and Glory

Earlier this week, at the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing, we had the opportunity to show footage from an exciting new game from Electronic Arts for the very first time. Anthem, a brand-new IP being created by BioWare, is a shared-world action-RPG, in which players can delve into a vast world teeming with amazing technology and forgotten treasures. The world is also filled with savage beasts and ruthless marauders, with Freelancers called in to defeat the forces plotting to conquer humanity. “Our developers at BioWare have been creating something special," said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Worldwide Studios. “We’re pushing Frostbite to new heights, developing a game unlike...

E3 2017: Ashen Lets You and a Friend Rage Against the Dying of the Light

The first time one of Ashen’s giant, freakishly long-limbed spiders dropped down on me, I squealed. Loudly. It was not the last time that happened during the 30 minutes I spent with the upcoming action RPG/roguelike from Aurora 44 but, as the old saying goes, you never forget your first time. As it turns out, unequipping my lantern and sword combo in favor of a two-handed spear was a remarkably poor decision, especially since the dungeon I was exploring was shrouded in oppressive darkness. Lesson learned! With that fatal experience tucked away for the next run, I began the demo over again, this time with an ace in the hole: a buddy who could help me. You see, while Ashen will let...
