10 Insider Tips for Airheart’s Colorful Airplane World Above the Clouds

In Airheart, your goal is to get to the top of the skies and catch the legendary skywhale. To succeed, you’ll need to battle pirates and drones, catch lots of fish and most importantly: stay alive! You play as Amelia, a young pilot, and fisherwoman wishing to reach the edge of the world and make the big catch. But since you’re living on the poor underside of Granaria, a flying city in the clouds, your way to the top will be especially hard. I played a couple of hundred hours of Airheart during development and I think I’ve got some nice tips for you for making the life of a fisherwoman easier. Don’t shoot the friendlies, or don’t be caught doing it On the first few... Read more: 10 Insider Tips for Airheart’s Colorful Airplane World Above the Clouds

Coffee Crisis Small ImageCoffee Crisis Large Image ENTERTAINMENT

Turning the Metal up to 11 in Coffee Crisis, Available Now on Xbox One

Hello, Xbox fans! We're excited to bring Coffee Crisis, our neo-rogue brawler to the Xbox One today. I wanted to introduce the game and explain what makes this dark brew of beat 'em up action so incredibly metal. Right out of the gate, Coffee Crisis hits players with a hard and heavy plot. An evil deep space race of aliens has come to strip humanity of its most precious accomplishments - Wi-Fi, coffee, and heavy metal. The game stars two baristas from a heavy metal themed coffee shop who use the Seven Demon Blend as a weapon against this threat. It's a campy story that never lets up on the intensity, just like a heavy metal guitar solo. Next, we knew that the gameplay would have...

Graveyard Keeper Small Image Graveyard Keeper Small Image ENTERTAINMENT

Graveyard Keeper Digs Itself up on Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass

Graveyard Keeper is a game about choices, dark humor, and making profit from bodies of fallen RPG heroes, and is available beginning later today on Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass. Over two years ago we were coming off the launch of Punch Club and brainstorming random ideas for what a next game could be. We wanted to expand on a systems-focused game like that game, but go into dark humor territory. The original idea was literally two words: Graveyard. Tycoon. It quickly became the working title for a prototype. In it, you’d have a Punch Club-style point-and-click interface, and would build & manage a medieval graveyard. The problem with doing a Tycoon-style game became very... Read more: Graveyard Keeper Digs Itself up on Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass

Warhammer 40,000 returns to Xbox One with Space Hulk: Tactics, an enhanced adaption of the classic turn-based strategy board game, coming October 9, and now available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store. In Space Hulk: Tactics, Marine Terminators face off against merciless alien Genestealers in the tight confines of a space hulk, an ancient amalgamation of starships, smashed together over eons to form a deadly maze and function as a breeding ground for aliens and worse. Traps, locked doors, malfunctioning turrets, and more bar the way. It was vitally important to us to give you equal options on both sides of the fight in Space Hulk: Tactics. For example, both Terminators and... Read more: The Two Sides of Space Hulk: Tactics, Coming Soon to Xbox One

Call of Cthulhu Small ImageCall of Cthulhu Large Image ENTERTAINMENT

Call of Cthulhu’s Creeping Terror Coming to Xbox One October 30

Horror comes in many forms. The sudden strike of the hammer, the slow drip of a blood-soaked corridor, the crunch of a monstrous creature feasting on bones. Each evokes their own emotion, their own feeling. What we’re most proud of in Call of Cthulhu is our atmosphere and the creeping sense of dread we chose to evoke. At Darkwater Island in 1924, its people, its culture, the buildings, even the sea are strange, distorted, and downright weird. We needed to create this atmosphere because that’s the kind of universe the Cthulhu mythos is built on, not one of terrifying aliens or skin-eating chainsaw-wielders. It is weird and cruel, the creeping madness of paranoia, the unexplainable, a... Read more: Call of Cthulhu’s Creeping Terror Coming to Xbox One October 30

We’re insanely excited to release TerraTech on Xbox One, but we couldn’t let ourselves launch it without giving future prospectors some top tips before they head out into the endless, procedurally-generated world of TerraTech. 1 - Hide Your Cab Our first tip for survival in TerraTech is: hide your cab! When you start campaign mode, the first thing you’re told is to protect your cab at all costs. Most players then go on to place their cabs at the front of their Techs, completely vulnerable and open to attack, resulting in quicker and more frequent defeats. Instead, try building around your cab and making it the center of your Tech. 2 - Mimic Real Vehicles TerraTech...

FIFA 19 Large Image ENTERTAINMENT

New Kick Off Mode Reinvigorates Local Multiplayer in FIFA 19

For many gamers, their first FIFA experience was probably a head-to-head matchup with a friend, on the couch, in a dorm room or childhood bedroom. Kick Off mode is traditionally a pure FIFA experience in which two (or four) people pick teams and face off in a straightforward, two-team, 90-minute match. Bragging rights are achieved after every win, until the next match occurs. But this year, Kick Off mode is getting a makeover. The new Kick Off experience in FIFA 19 opens local multiplayer for everybody, providing a wealth of customizable options for every match, as well as a system for tracking your stats and record against friends on any console. Aside from the traditional match, now... Read more: New Kick Off Mode Reinvigorates Local Multiplayer in FIFA 19
