The Two Sides of Space Hulk: Tactics, Coming Soon to Xbox One

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’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

Five Pro Tips to Survive the Creative World of TerraTech, Out Now on Xbox One

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...

8 Great Moments from Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Lara Croft, the longtime heroine of the Tomb Raider series has never had an easy go of it, constantly facing adversity as she attempted to uncover the world’s secrets. In the 2013 Xbox One reboot of Tomb Raider, she had to battle her way across the dangerous island of Yamatai after a harrowing shipwreck. Then, in 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider, she struggled to stay alive in the frozen forests of Siberia following a massive avalanche. Now, in the upcoming game Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must face her toughest challenge yet: a full-blown, world-ending apocalypse.

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

Hi, I'm Ryan!

Writing a game isn't like writing in other mediums. In comics, you control the whole page: who's saying what, to whom, and when - plus you control the pacing, too - which includes the size of the panels, their number, and their order. It's like being the director, actor, and writer all at the same time, and it gives you full control over a joke. But in games you don't control any of that!...

Overcooked 2 has been one of the most difficult secrets I've ever had to keep. For months leading up to the announcement, we had hundreds of emails from the community, shocked that we had abandoned the game and angry that we were ignoring the myriad messages from players hungry for online multiplayer. I'm sure they imagined us lying around in hammocks sipping pina coladas out of coconuts. Nonsense. I hate coconut. The truth is that Oli and I haven't really stopped working on Overcooked since its release. We've been working on DLC, porting the game to new languages and new platforms and yes, we've been secretly working on the sequel... something neither of us ever imagined would happen...
