The Bradwell ConspiracyThe Bradwell Conspiracy ID@XBOX

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,...

Conquer the Red Planet in New Warface Update on Xbox One

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 ID@XBOX

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

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

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 ID@XBOX

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

The Outer Worlds, Stellaris, and More Coming Soon to Xbox Game Pass for PC

“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! Speaking of explosive, we’ve got a great batch of amazing games that are out of this world (see what we did there?) coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) this month.

Top 5 Ways to Stay Alive in Worse Than Death

Hey there, Xbox fans! We are a mom-and-pop indie studio from Toronto, Canada, and we’ve been making spooky, story-rich and thoughtful games for a decade now. Our newest title, Worse Than Death, launches today and is our first foray into the Xbox family.

It’s all designed to play super-smooth and freak you... Read more: Top 5 Ways to Stay Alive in Worse Than Death

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...

Me, You, Walkie Talkies, and a Whole Lot of Puzzles in We Were Here Too

How many lost Antarctic explorers can one sinister castle hold? In the case of Castle Rock in our series of cooperative puzzle adventures, the answer is at least six! We Were Here Too is the second game in the series, following We Were Here which released in September! So after meeting the first two explorers in We Were Here, you will run into two more explorers in We Were Here Too! The premise for the game is the same, at first glance: two explorers find themselves trapped inside a mysterious castle by a fierce blizzard. Once inside, they become split up.

Cuphead AnniversaryCuphead Anniversary ID@XBOX

Celebrating Cuphead’s 2-Year Anniversary

Hello folks! This week is a particularly exciting one for us here at Studio MDHR. This past Sunday, September 29, Cuphead officially turned two. It’s truly surreal to look back on the release of our little animated adventure, and all that’s transpired in the two years since. The outpouring of support, fan art, letters, and hilarious playthrough streams have continued to warm our hearts. Both Jared and I have been public about the fact that we poured ourselves into Cuphead because it was the kind of game we knew we’d love to play, and we were perfectly prepared to go back to our day jobs if that’s what it came to. For us, the journey is - and always has been - about trying to... Read more: Celebrating Cuphead’s 2-Year Anniversary

New Tamer Class Added to Black Desert

The divine beast Heilang is the loyal companion of Tamer, the newest character class in Black Desert on Xbox One. Available to play today as part of a free update, Tamer wields a Shortsword and Trinket, hunting enemies alongside her legendary protector. To fully understand the origin of Tamer and how to use her skills in combat, we’re sharing a peek inside her story. At the furthest point of the Orient lies Haemo Island, a region defined by its wilderness and nearly untouched by civilization. There, Tamer grew up as a small child amongst a pack of cubs and Heilang, the legendary beast. Once she was older, she met Hwisa, a sage inhabitant of the island, who trained her in swordsmanship...

Become an Eldritch God and Punish Heretics That Defy You in Sea Salt

The beauty of video games is that you can do whatever you want, so for our game we went for two things that are hard or not recommended to do in real life: being a God and being a bit evil. Sea Salt takes place in a setting inspired by HP Lovecraft and European folklore, where you play as an Old God betrayed by the Bishop of your own religion. After you granted your followers food, fortune, and fair winds for their fishing boats, The Bishop, who lead your human followers on land, turned out to be an unworthy coward when it was time to pay the final price...so now, when the deal between man and the Old God of the sea is broken, they will find is your vengeance!
