Team Minecraft celebrates the First Anniversary of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta

What a year it has been! This morning we celebrated the first anniversary of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta. Since the Windows 10 Edition released last July we have committed over 12,000 code check-ins and fixed over 6000 bugs. All that work has resulted in 15 updates with dozens of new features for you, with lots more to come. Over the last year, zombie villagers got upgraded wardrobes, while rabbits got new coats and headed out to the desert and snow biomes. Our squid learned how to flee and our cauldrons learned how to dye armor. Somewhere along the way our baby zombies even learned how to ride chickens, (…um, watch out for that!) Acacia villages started popping up in your... Read more

The Secrets to Success in We Happy Few

As many of you are diving into We Happy Few (which is available starting today on the Xbox Game Preview program), you may have realized that this game is a bit different than other survival games.  So, to help you get started, we’re happy to share five tips to help make your stay in Wellington Wells just a little bit easier.

Halo Wars 2 Isabel New Outlook for SDCC Small Halo Wars 2 Isabel New Outlook for SDCC Small Consoles

Inside the Halo Wars 2 Panel at Comic-Con 2016

I’ve been a part of the Halo universe since 2003. And to this day, I still feel like the new guy. From my first day at Bungie to this very moment at 343 Industries, I have watched amazingly talented people bring my favorite universe to life and felt honored, and sometimes astonished, that little bits of my work have contributed to the world-building over the last 13 years. So in a way, I never forget what it is to be exposed to that feeling of wonder and newness. To the feeling that your work is additive and that you’ve gone from being a mute witness to a participant. So today at the Halo Wars 2 panel at San Diego Comic Con, it was with wry pleasure and perfect empathy that I... Read more

The History of We Happy Few

Hello from Compulsion Games! We are 21 people based in Montreal, Quebec, who thought it would be a good idea to make a game set in a procedural city about a 1960s English society obsessed with drugs, denial and happiness.  We’ve come a long way - we are only a few days away from releasing We Happy Few on Xbox Game Preview - and we’re still working out exactly what that last sentence means. It was mid-2013 when we started thinking about We Happy Few.  A couple of months before we shipped our first game, Contrast, we were asking ourselves “how can we make a bigger game, with the same or better quality, but keep our team relatively small?”. Linear games of the quality we wanted to... Read more
