The Bradwell ConspiracyThe Bradwell Conspiracy CONSOLES

Narrative Adventure Game The Bradwell Conspiracy is Available Today on Xbox One

Hi Xbox Fans, The Bradwell Conspiracy is a narrative adventure game about photography, 3D printing and some worrying corporate underhandedness. We’re launching on Xbox One today and we wanted to share with you some behind-the-scenes insights that’ll make your experience in our game world just a little richer. When you first load up The Bradwell Conspiracy you’ll quickly notice two things: Firstly, due to an injury you can’t talk and, secondly, the building around you is collapsing! The Bradwell Stonehenge museum you were visiting has been severely damaged in an explosion and (almost) everyone has been evacuated. You’ll be communicating with the only other survivor,...

looked to the stars for a new start, free from conflict and war. But there is no running from war. Blackwood Games and My.Games are proud to introduce the Mars update, a new chapter in the Warface saga on Xbox One which takes the action from Earth to the red planet itself: Mars. This latest update also introduces a new Mars-inspired PvP map, and the new Battle Pass: Season 3! Warface’s long-time nemeses, the nefarious Blackwood organisation, have been building their strength and their military might on Earth in the form of a vast SED army. It’s clear that their ambitions are more cosmic in scale and nature as their sights are now set on Mars. With Earth’s security at stake, not...

Frostpunk Frostpunk CONSOLES

The Meaningful Design of Frostpunk’s Society System

Society is everything in Frosptunk, the Victorian-era city-builder and a society simulator from 11 bit studios that is making its way to Xbox One today, October 11. As you reign in the last city on a severely frozen Earth, your success heavily depends on how you steer society and how well you balance between their hope and discontent. Let’s not forget that you also build and maintain infrastructure; Frostpunk is a mix of city-builder, survival, and society simulator after all. Anyway, staying on the topic, it’s not an exaggeration to say that designing society's behaviors as reliable and meaningful was a huge part of the development process. Ruling the Frostpunk society is... Read more: The Meaningful Design of Frostpunk’s Society System

Vigor CONSOLES

Details on Vigor 1.1 Update: Bridges

Hei, Outlanders. Post-war Norway was quite a ride over the last months. As Vigor went free-to-play during the gamescom announcement, new Outlanders started to flow in. We are humbled by the number of players who decided to give Vigor a try. There were already over 2.5 million players who tried Vigor since the start of Xbox Game Preview, which means over 1.3 million players jumped in within the first month after the full release. The numbers far exceeded our expectations and, sincerely, we were not prepared enough for it. Finally, we recovered, and now plan to update the game more on a regular basis. We took our time to find and fix the most pressing issues (so called "ghost bullets" and... Read more: Details on Vigor 1.1 Update: Bridges

Moons of Madness Moons of Madness CONSOLES

Play Moons of Madness with the Lights On

There is nothing quite like closing the curtains, turning off the lights and powering up your Xbox with a brand-new horror game installed. Usually the ominous music, the screeches, or worse; whistling, that accompanies the dark and gloomy intro screen are enough to make my hair stand on end and goosebumps cover the majority of my arms. It’s self-torture, but I love it. I must admit, though, that every now and then, I find myself heading for the light switch with lightning speed. Like when daddy Jack Baker first makes his appearance in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard or when the lights start flickering about half an hour into Alien Isolation. It’s either lights on or stop playing... Read more: Play Moons of Madness with the Lights On

ATLASATLAS CONSOLES

The Future of Atlas on Xbox Game Preview, Available Today on Xbox One

When I talk to players about Atlas, there’s one phrase I often hear: “Atlas could be my perfect game.” As a developer, it’s very exciting to hear so many people express that opinion. You can’t help but think “Wow, people really love what our game has to offer.” But when you work on an Xbox Game Preview title, you also have to recognize that the operative words in that phrase are “could be.” When players start joining the game today on Xbox One, they’ll experience the most polished, most stable, and most fun version of this massive pirate adventure to date. But it’s not the final version of the game. On the contrary: for the development team, the Xbox One... Read more: The Future of Atlas on Xbox Game Preview, Available Today on Xbox One

“Are you feeling anything that could be construed as explosive cell death? No? Wonderful! Let’s get started.” –  Dr. Phineas Wells from The Outer Worlds We think this quote from The Outer Worlds is applicable in most situations. No explosive cell death? Awesome!

We Visit Afterparty’s Hell One More Time Before Its October 29 Release with Xbox Game Pass

We don’t want to surprise anyone, but the Hell of Afterparty can be a little messed up. At a recent preview event in San Francisco, developer Night School Studio gave us the opportunity to sit down with the game largely as players will get to experience it in just a few short weeks when it comes to Xbox One and with Xbox Game Pass on October 29. Things start off at an end-of-college mixer that evokes awkward coming of age humor of movies like “Booksmart” and shows like “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a smart, almost horror movie oriented intro — main characters Lola and Milo are young, messed up, awkward, funny people with a lifetime’s worth of relationship in-jokes, and...
