Halo Wars 2 Launches Worldwide on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC

“28 years, professor…” Though it may not have really been 28 years since Halo Wars, eight years is certainly a long time to wait and it feels surreal to say this: Halo Wars 2 is launching worldwide today on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC! On behalf of the Strategy Games team inside 343 Industries, we’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work on Halo Wars 2 and for the patience of fans who waited so long to get their “ALL UNITS” on again. We want to thank our partners at Creative Assembly for their deep respect to the Halo universe and for challenging us to expand on that universe.

Zombie Vikings Are Invading Xbox One

You know those nights hanging out in your living room, eating pizza and going crazy about some game with your friends? That’s the image we had in mind when we created Zombie Vikings. During the development, we called it a pizza-and-beer game. That should be an official genre, right? But remember, you can also drink soda! Totally fine. Zombie Vikings is a co-op brawler for up to four players. Team up with Caw-Kaa, Hedgy, Gunborg, and Seagurd -- all recently reanimated -- and go on a quest to find Odin’s eye, which has been snatched by the gods own trickster Loki. Oh, and there are also cats with cute little bows. Your journey takes place in the twisted universe that is Norse... Read more

But wait, you’re probably thinking, “What the heck is Full Metal Furies?” If you haven’t seen the trailer (see above), Full Metal Furies is an RPG-laden action brawler for up to four players. But the brawler formula is a little outdated, made for a time when arcade machines guzzled... Read more

Cities Skylines Small ImageCities Skylines Large Image Games

Build Your Dream City in Cities: Skylines on Xbox One This Spring

Cities: Skylines was released as a modern take on a classic city builder back in March of 2015. The game became a massive hit, featuring residential, commercial, industrial and office areas zoned around tight road-building tools (with various city services and unique buildings sprinkled in). Skylines can be played as a progression oriented experience where more building types, services and public transportation options are unlocked as your city grows, or it can be played as a sandbox experience where the player can elect to have everything available from the beginning, even with infinite money if their sole desire is to let their creative juices flow.
