Titanfall 2: Welcome Back to the Frontier

When we launched the original Titanfall in 2014 the Xbox community welcomed us with open arms and helped make it a tremendous success. It was amazing to see the positive reaction and incredible things players were doing with the game. We are grateful for your amazing support. Now, we’re excited to continue the journey with our fans and new players alike with the launch of Titanfall 2. Our goal with Titanfall 2 was to improve on what we built, but also challenge ourselves to create something new. Adding a proper single player campaign was a big priority this time. We heard you loud and clear that you wanted to see and explore more of the universe we created, and internally we wanted to... Read more

Xenoraid Delivers Modern Shoot ’em Up Action on Xbox One

Hello everyone! I'm thrilled to announce that Xenoraid for Xbox One is now available for pre-order and will launch on November 8th! I loved vertical shooters as a kid, but don't care much for the current generation of the bullet hell-type. So when it came to designing Xenoraid, choosing its goals was easy. Firstly, the game would focus on shooting and have that be as satisfying as possible. Secondly, no memorizing levels or bullet patterns. Thirdly, I wanted an unique setting and a deep metagame to support the action. Even if I do say so myself, Xenoraid turned out alright! The focus on shooting came through beautifully. The starfighters in Xenoraid tilt slightly left and right when... Read more

How Watch Dogs 2 Improves on the Original

On November 15, Watch Dogs 2 returns to the always-connected (and extremely hackable) world introduced by Watch Dogs. The basic concept is the same – you're set loose in a city where absolutely everything is online and lorded over by sinister tech giants – but this is a world that went through a lot of changes after Aiden Pearce rampaged through Chicago's criminal underworld on a quest for revenge, and all of those changes are designed to make Watch Dogs 2 a more fun, flexible experience than its gritty predecessor. The shift from Chicago to the San Francisco Bay Area comes with a brighter, more idealistic outlook, with the focus now on undermining a corrupt power structure instead... Read more

Welcome to Battlefield 1! Now Available Worldwide

As Battlefield 1 is rolling out worldwide, I’m looking back on a journey that started with a daring pitch from the team here at DICE. Fast forward a few years, and it’s almost surreal to see you getting your hands on the final result, facing the dawn of all-out war with the rest of the community. With Battlefield 1, we wanted to create a fresh new take on the franchise, keeping that classic and unmistakable flavor that is Battlefield intact. It was a gamble. We knew that. But with such a unique game setting like the Great War, many unique gameplay options came with it. Judging from your reactions (not to mention how much fun we’ve had with the game ourselves) I dare say the... Read more

Halo Wars 2: Exploring the Campaign and a New Way to Play

The last time we saw the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire in Halo Wars, they were settling in for a long cryosleep on their way home, knowing that with a little luck, they'd make it back to civilized space in one piece. Nearly 30 years later, they’re awakened to a new threat to the Halo universe and find themselves as the one thing standing between hope and annihilation. Halo Wars 2 will take us back to the Ark, introduce new heroes and villains, and deliver a new multiplayer mode that has the potential to push the real-time strategy genre forward. "Due to the Ark's tremendous size, we basically have an infinite canvas to paint our war spaces on," explains Jeremy Cook, Art Director for... Read more
