E3 2017: Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Coming Exclusively to Xbox One in Late 2017

Today at the Microsoft E3 briefing, we revealed that battle royale phenomenon Playerunknown's Battlegrounds will launch exclusively on console via Xbox One's Game Preview program in late 2017, and in 2018 as a Xbox One X enhanced title. Battlegrounds has sold more than 3 million copies on PC, is a top three game on Steam with over 200,000 concurrent users, and has been one of the most played games since its early access started on that platform, with a passionate community constantly engaging with each other and sharing their exciting (and hilarious) gameplay on Mixer and across social media. And thanks to Xbox Live, the fastest, most reliable gaming network, Battlegrounds will have... Read more

E3 2017: How Will You Survive? The World Premiere of State of Decay 2 Gameplay Shows a Way

Today, during the Xbox E3 2017 briefing, we showed State of Decay 2 gameplay for the first time ever in public. It’s a big moment for the team at Undead Labs who have been working tirelessly for the past three years to deliver what we think will be our best game yet. When we first set out to create State of Decay 2, we knew we wanted a true sequel that took everything fans loved from the first State of Decay and create a more dangerous, unpredictable world that allows players to engage with one another in co-op multiplayer to survive. That means more unique survivors, each with their own traits and motivation, more options to manage your community and develop your base, more new... Read more

Announcing Xbox FanFest: E3 2017

The return of Xbox FanFest to E3 begins a profound year for Xbox and its fans. When we started doing FanFest a little over 3 years ago, we not only wanted to build rally points around the world for Xbox Nation, but we wanted gamers everywhere to know how deeply important they were to our past, present and future. Last year, we reached an incredible 13,000 Xbox fans at FanFests around the world. In Mexico, we built a huge Xbox-only event, in Australia we not only took fans drifting to celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3 but we took them to Bondi Beach for a little Gears of War 4, and at gamescom, we shut down our booth so FanFest attendees could play all the hottest Xbox exclusives. ...

Rockstar Energy Drink Launches Largest Game Promotion to Date with Custom Gears of War 4 Cans

Today, Rockstar Energy Drink and Xbox unveiled the Gears of War 4 collector’s edition series of cans featuring four original designs by artists inspired by the blockbuster videogame franchise. Artists Jesse Hernandez, Hydro74, and GodMachine were hand selected by the Coalition and Rockstar Energy to capture the authentic vibe of both brands.

A Record-Setting E3 2016 Kicks Off a New Era of Gaming

Two weeks ago at E3 2016 in Los Angeles, we shared more new hardware like Xbox One S and Xbox Design Lab, more new Xbox Live features across Xbox One and Windows 10, and the biggest lineup of exclusive games than any E3 in Xbox history.  But more importantly even than the amazing year in front of Xbox gamers, we laid out a vision that will give gamers more innovation and more choice than ever before.  We want to take gaming forward to new heights, as Xbox has always sought to do, and what we shared at E3 2016 serves as a key milestone toward that future of innovation and choice we believe gamers deserve. At Xbox, we see a future full of choice – choice to play the games you want,... Read more

All Is Definitely Not Quiet on the Western Front in Battlefield 1

The scope of Battlefield 1’s undertaking is, when you step back from the fray and get the wide view, incredibly impressive. Epic 64-player battles on massive maps. An honest-to-goodness attempt to bring the Great War to an interactive experience. Graphics that will knock your gas mask off. And that freakin’ zeppelin! At E3 2016, we got a chance to play a huge team deathmatch session, and the experience was nothing short of eye-popping. From flying around in a tri-plane, gazing down at the fields and village below, to piloting our own personal mini-tank, to the hardscrabble clawing of small-arms combat, Battlefield 1 delivers fantastic action all the time. While we played on a map... Read more

Agents of Mayhem Brings More Madness from the Creators of Saints Row

Volition’s most famous work, Saints Row, is all about player choice – and it’s delivered possibly more opportunities to cause mischief, madness, and just plain old mind games than any other gaming franchise since it first hit Xbox 360 a decade ago. Agents of Mayhem takes place in the same universe as Saints Row – and delivers a refreshing twist on that beloved over-the-top formula. The game sees players explore a futuristic version of Seoul, South Korea, with a team of elite agents who are on a quest to stop a collection of supervillains. Think of it as a 1960s spy thriller, crossed with the zaniness that you’d expect from a Volition creation. And since this is a Volition game,... Read more

Tacoma Weaves an Augmented-Reality Mystery in Space

While arriving at the space station Tacoma, it’s difficult not to think of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The homage is obvious and purposeful; Tacoma is a circular space station with a malfunctioning, talking AI, after all. But there’s a lot more to this story than a computer gone awry. Tacoma is a story about people and relationships – even though you’re all alone. The second game from Fullbright, the team behind the critically acclaimed Gone Home, Tacoma puts you in control of Amy Ferrier, a contractor sent to the space station to recover data for her employer. In the process, she unearths how the previous crew of six scientists have seemingly disappeared, gathering clues on what... Read more

Titanfall 2 Brings New Titan Classes to the Fight

We’ve got a lot of fond memories of jumping into massive mechs and causing some epic destruction in Titanfall, one of the most popular games to launch on the Xbox One.  If you, like us, have a big, war mech-shaped hole in your heart needing to be filled, then Titanfall 2 couldn’t be coming at a better time. At E3 2016, EA and Respawn Entertainment showed off some of the new features coming to Titanfall 2, most notably the new Titan classes. Instead of a fully customizable Titan, players can select between six different Titans with their own skills and strengths. Soldiers, too, are split into classes, and finding the right combination of the two can mean the difference between... Read more

Guns. Betrayal. A Knife Fight on the Bayou. Mafia III. Need We Say More?

Mafia fans have waited just about six years for the third entry in 2K’s open-world crime series, but based on Mafia III’s spectacular showing at E3 2016 – complete with a setup at the publisher’s booth that looked straight out of Mardi Gras in New Orleans – it looks like the wait will be well worth it. As in previous Mafia entries, players will explore an insanely detailed locale based on a real-life American metropolis. Mafia III’s New Bordeaux is inspired by the diverse landscapes of Louisiana, and the 1968 setting makes for a potent mix of politics and explosive gang warfare. And during our demo, we discovered the iconic music of the time will play a role as well; a couple... Read more

Injustice 2 Makes Gods of Us All

Superheroes fighting other superheroes is the new hotness, but before films pitted the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel against each other, there was Injustice: Gods Among Us, a heavy-hitting fighting game from the creators of Mortal Kombat. Here at E3 2016, NetherRealm is back, bringing the biggest heroes and villains from the DC Universe together for Injustice 2. The roster for Injustice 2, while not fully confirmed, is going to be far larger than the previous game, according to WB Games. At the show we got to see returning faves Batman, Superman, and Aquaman, along with newcomers Supergirl, Gorilla Grodd, and the Red Lantern Atrocitus. The over-the-top cinematic special moves and...

Ghost Recon Wildlands is About Teamwork, Action, and Above All, Choice

After knocking the gaming world’s collective socks off with their E3 2016 press conference demo, Ubisoft let us get our grubby little hands on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands ­– and blew our minds even further out into space. Set in a Bolivia that’s been taken over at all levels by drug cartels, you and up to three friends take on the roles of elite special operations warriors who are way, way behind enemy lines. Your job is to use any means at your disposal (and Wildlands places a lot of different means at your disposal – more on that in a second) to disrupt the cartels and give the Bolivian people control of their country back. Wildlands is an open-world,... Read more

Exploring the New Characters, Modes, and Moves of Tekken 7

It’s always nice to see a familiar face at E3, and when it comes to fighting games, the Tekken series is one we’re always happy to see. The newest entry in the series, Tekken 7, brings new characters, new modes, and new ways to prove you’re king of the iron fist. We got the chance to play a few rounds here at E3 2016 – and to learn why Tekken 7 is the most ambitious entry in the series. The first thing to note is that yes, you saw that trailer correctly: Akuma of Street Fighter fame is one of Tekken 7’s playable characters. Crossovers between the two series have happened in the past, so it’s not uncommon, but Akuma isn’t just there for kicks. He’s an integral part of... Read more

Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life for Me, You, and Everyone

Sometimes games are so charming and full of life that they transcend their gameplay, becoming immersive, social experiences that are more about the people around you than which button you’re pressing. Sea of Thieves is exactly that kind of game. It’s a game that was just as fun when we succeeded as when we epically failed. Simply put, Sea of Thieves is a game about being a pirate, and everything that comes with that – and it’s a shared-world game where you’ll encounter other crews of players. In our E3 demo, three crews of pirates explored a shared patch of island-dotted sea, and were given the freedom to do whatever they wanted. So we did just that. We hopped onto a... Read more

Cuphead Embraces the Classic Imperfections of Yesteryear

E3 is filled with games that we’re trying out for the first time. Cuphead isn’t one of those – we’ve had a chance to play the extremely retro-styled indie title a few times over the past year, and we’ve adored the zany creativity on display each time – but that doesn't mean that its appearance at E3 2016 was simply a rehash of what we’ve seen before. The game plays out like one of those classic Popeye cartoons come to life – you know, the really old ones before animation had any sort of code or followed any sort of established rules – crossed with run-and-gun ’80s arcade fare like Contra. This time around, we got the chance to try out Cuphead’s platforming segments... Read more
