E3 2019: Bleeding Edge is Four-on-Four Competitive Brawling Mayhem

Hellblade developers Ninja Theory brought their frantic new team-based brawler, Bleeding Edge, to E3. Bleeding Edge is a MOBA riff, a competitive four-on-four battle with frantic, fast-moving combat and ridiculously huge attack effects. I played a few rounds of Bleeding Edge on the floor of at the Xbox E3 Showcase. Here are all the details. Controlled Chaos My first experience with Bleeding Edge was pure chaos. As two teams experienced the game for the first time, the match was a riot of clashing area attacks, rapid retreats and dashes towards checkpoints, with not enough attention paid to strategy by new players eager to try out all their attack options. All of which is a... Read more: E3 2019: Bleeding Edge is Four-on-Four Competitive Brawling Mayhem

E3 2019: Call of Duty Modern Warfare is a Dark Franchise Refresh

The silence is unnerving. A four-person squad shuffles up a narrow stair in a North London building. There’s no room to turn around. They move floor to floor in near-total darkness, night vision goggles tinting the scene green. Orders are whispered. Each man’s breathing has a slightly ragged edge, but it’s under control. When a shotgun fires from behind a door it sounds like a cannon. One man is down. Those still standing turn to fire at a man holding a woman like a human shield. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is not a sequel, but a refresh. It cuts loose some of the gameplay concepts that have defined the series for years — no more slow-motion action sequences — and leans in to...

Spiritfarer Debuts at Xbox E3 2019 Briefing

“Welcome to the big show.” These were the first words I heard when I walked into rehearsals. We were about to announce our studio’s third game, Spiritfarer, on the biggest stage in the world: E3. My name is Will Dubé, and I’m the founder of Thunder Lotus Games. Five years ago, I quit my job to put an indie game on Kickstarter. Today, I’m writing to you from beautiful Los Angeles as we introduce our new game, Spiritfarer, to the world on the biggest stage in gaming. Spiritfarer is a cozy management game about dying. It’s a game about heritage and what you leave behind. It’s about relationships you create and care for, and the bitter-sweetness of saying goodbye....

E3 2019: Five News Things We Learned About Cyberpunk 2077

Let’s get this part out of the way first: Cyberpunk 2077 looks even more incredible than the last time we saw it. From its massive open world, branching dialog, and multiple ways to play it’s going to be one of the most talked about games in 2020. After a year of waiting for more details and information, the day is finally here as CD Projekt Red pulled back the curtain with a brand-new demo for E3 2019. In that hour-long, closed-door guided gameplay walkthrough, we learned five new things that helps to give Cyperpunk 2077 an incredible level of depth, immersive world design, and lots of Keanu Reeves. In-depth Character Customization The hands-off demo began with showcasing some... Read more: E3 2019: Five News Things We Learned About Cyberpunk 2077

Play The Division 2 for Free This Weekend with Xbox Live Gold

Journey to the Savage Planet XBOX ONE

E3 2019: Light-Hearted Exploration Fuels Journey to the Savage Planet

Would you like to journey to an exotic planet, meet cute little owl-like aliens and... slap them? In Journey to the Savage Planet, the first title from the new Typhoon Studios, you’re an intrepid adventurer in the employ of Kindred Aerospace, which proudly proclaims its ranking as the fourth-best interstellar exploration company for eight years running. That’s your first hint that this voyage might not be the best-advised trip. The intentionally ironic title is something of a misdirect from a gameplay experience that is a bit like No Man’s Sky with jokes. (The color scheme of this game powers at least half of the No Man’s Sky comparison.) This looks like a pleasant trip to outer...

Watch Dogs: Legion is coming to Xbox One on March 6, 2020, taking you to a near-future London torn between sinister factions working to keep citizens meek and controlled. Organized criminals vie with a sinister private military for control of the streets, all under the watchful eye of an oppressive surveillance state. The citizens need something to rally around if they’re going to take back the city, and that something is the hacker collective DedSec.

E3 2019: EA Unleashes the Force Powers and Fluid Combat of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Here’s a familiar Star Wars scenario: You’re running from danger and turn a corner only to realize there are a few stormtroopers 10 yards away. They fire blasters, so there are slashes of deadly energy racing towards you at light speed. If stormtroopers weren’t such terrible shots, you’d be dead. Or maybe you’re young Jedi Cal Kestis, the hero of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. In that case you might use one Force power to slow time, making those blaster shots look like paper streamers fluttering through the air. Then you Force pull a stormtrooper right into your hands, before depositing him in the path of his own blaster fire, which finishes him off. In that case you’re not...

E3 2019: What’s Next for Xbox Backward Compatibility

Since the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program was announced at E3 2015, over half of all Xbox gamers have enjoyed Original Xbox or Xbox 360 games on Xbox One.

We knew going in that Bethesda’s E3 keynote would not have big reveals — and no, there was no footage from The Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield.
