Prepare for Titanfall: Marc Whitten Provides Details on Xbox One March Update
As a gamer, I couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming launch of “Titanfall.” I’ve played the game and it’s awesome – I can’t wait to see you online! This launch is particularly special because our team has been working to make Xbox Live on Xbox One the best place to play. We have received lots of feedback since the launch of Xbox One in November and listening closely to you. I’m excited to share that our second, and most significant, system update for Xbox One is starting to roll out today and includes improved matchmaking, party chat and friends features that will make gaming on Xbox One an experience like no other. To me that means playing games like “Titanfall” on the best multiplayer service on the planet, using a new headset or the one you already own, while live broadcasting your games on Twitch.
March Games with Gold: “Civilization Revolution” and “Dungeon Defenders”
March is almost here, so beginning this Saturday you can enjoy two more titles via the Xbox 360 Games with Gold program, available for free for a limited time: First up, lead your chosen nation from the dawn of man to the space age on your quest to rule the world in “Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution.” Go head to head with history's greatest leaders as you wage war, conduct diplomacy, discover new technologies and build the most powerful empire the world has ever known. In additional to the famously addictive gameplay with endless ways to play, Xbox Live multiplayer competitions, matchmaking, Leaderboards, Achievements and downloadable content will keep you coming back for more!
New Developers Sign On to ID@Xbox
It has been an exciting couple months for ID@Xbox. We created this program to make it easy for independent developers to bring their innovative ideas to Xbox One, and the response from the community continues to be amazing! In December, we gave you a first look at developers worldwide who joined the program. Without further ado, below are some more ID@Xbox developers hard at work on their games. Remember, this list is by no mean exhaustive – more than 200 developers are already creating games using dev kits provided by ID@Xbox right now – it’s just a sample of the many independent developers who will be bringing their games to Xbox One. Honestly when I look at this list, all I can say is “wow.” It’s incredibly humbling to see so many fantastic studios there supporting Xbox One, from XBLIG and XBLA alumni like Ska Studios and Humble Hearts, to new studios like Glass Bottom Games and Heart Machine, and veterans including Robomodo, Zoë Mode and Playdead. We could not be more excited!

Introducing a Truly Next-Gen Twitch Experience on Xbox One
The best broadcasting and spectating experience on any game console is on its way when the new Twitch app launches on Xbox One on March 11. Twitch, the world’s largest video platform and community for gamers with 45 million visitors per month, and Xbox One, the only all-in-one games and entertainment system, are joining forces to bring the broadcasting and spectating experience into the new generation. Both Twitch and Xbox One are seeing blazing growth, with Twitch’s traffic skyrocketing, as the #4 peak US internet traffic destination and Xbox One off to the fastest launch in Xbox history. On the heels of the acclaimed “Titanfall” beta, which peaked at No. 1 on Twitch across all platforms with more than 65,000 concurrent views on Feb. 13, it’s time to give the world its first taste of the next-generation multiplayer action. On March 11 when “Titanfall” launches, Twitch and Xbox One come together for the first truly next-gen Twitch experience, one that can't be matched by any other console. Only with Twitch on Xbox One can you broadcast and watch your favorite games live by simply saying “Xbox, Broadcast.” Once you’re done broadcasting, you can use Twitch to watch the games you love, chat with the players you follow, or even join a broadcaster’s game. Xbox One is the only next-gen console that allows you to archive your Twitch broadcasts and view live Twitch streams regardless of their original source.
