Enjoy These Great Sci-Fi Films That Inspired Prey

In celebration of all things sci-fi, Arkane Studios’ dev team shares how classic sci-fi movies inspired the Bethesda Softworks upcoming game, Prey. Launching on May 5, Prey is the highly anticipated first-person sci-fi thriller that Arkane Studios is calling an “open space station game,” blending both RPG and action adventure game styles. The storyline fits right in with sci-fi film classics like The Matrix, Moon, Starship Troopers, and Total Recall. Bethesda Softworks partnered with Alamo Draft House to showcase a few of these films throughout April, and will have their last festival event tonight at the Regent Theater in Los Angeles. Alongside these special film screenings, fans... Read more

ID@Xbox Celebrates the Release of More than 500 Games on Xbox One and Windows 10

A little more than three years ago, we took to the stage at Gamescom to unveil a brand-new program for Xbox One. Our goal was to make sure Xbox players have access to the best, most diverse collection of games by making sure we enabled developers of all shapes and sizes to self-publish their creations on Xbox One. Today, thanks to the efforts of independent developers from around the world and the fans who support them, we’re proud to reveal that after an amazing month of releases that included console exclusive Beep Games’ Voodoo Vince: Remastered, console launch exclusives Thimbleweed Park from Terrible Toybox and Cities: Skylines - Xbox One Edition from Paradox Interactive, and...

Explore the Uncharted Territory of World to the West This May on Xbox One

Hi folks! Rain Games here and we're absurdly, unbelievably stoked to announce that a new continent, far to the left of the known world, has been discovered! These lands house the abandoned ruins of an ancient civilization and the countries of the old world are taking careful steps in exploring it, lounging on the outskirts of the wilderness, unaware of the dangers lurking below. This is uncharted territory, but you'll soon be able to explore its lush jungles, placid lakes and deep, dark caverns when our new game, World to The West hits Xbox One on May 5. It's a new take on the top down action adventure genre -- World to the West may be a game about people adventuring in the lush ruins of... Read more

Narco Road Small Image Narco Road Small Image Games

Ghost Recon Wildlands Narco Road Expansion Available Now on Xbox One

Starting today, the elite commandos known as Ghosts can add a new tactic to their diverse skill set: undercover infiltration. Available now for Season Pass owners, the Narco Road expansion for Ghost Recon Wildlands sends the Ghosts undercover to bring down a South American smuggler known as El Invisible, which they'll do by posing as mercenaries and working with his gangs. The new campaign arc unfolds over 15 missions, but Narco Road is more than a story expansion, adding new challenges as well as monster trucks, chopper bikes, race cars, and even gold-plated guns to the mix. Getting El Invisible's attention means raising your profile among his gangs as much as possible, so... Read more

Wonder Boy Large Image Games

Relive the Retro Classic Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap on Xbox One

We're very excited to launch Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap for Xbox One on Tuesday, April 18! In this blog post I would like to talk a little about the creation of the game. A bit of background first. Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is a remake of a cult classic originally released in 1989 on Sega Master System, and then later TurboGrafx-16 and Game Gear. Like many who had the chance to play this game in their childhood, we were amazed by the amount of exploration, the secrets, and the catchy soundtrack! Being big fans, we had a dream: to bring the Wonder Boy license back and create a beautiful, 2017-worthy facelift to this much-loved game. This is how our Parisian studio Lizardcube was... Read more

Voodoo Vince SmallVoodoo Vince Large Image Games

Console Exclusive Voodoo Vince: Remastered Now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC

Voodoo Vince: Remastered is now available with Xbox Play Anywhere support -- buy it once digitally and own it on both Xbox One and Windows 10. 13 years, 6 month and 25 days. That’s how much time has passed since Voodoo Vince first appeared on the original Xbox in September of 2003. Since we announced the revival of Vince six months ago, I’ve been asked a few times “Of all the games that could get a remaster, why Vince?” as if it’s a multiple choice, or a strategic corporate goal of some kind. Here’s the real reason: I didn’t want to see this creation that represented years of hard work, joy, tears, and laughter end up completely lost to time. If you’re lucky, every now... Read more

The game's exclusive reveal was earlier today at Star Wars Celebration where we all got a first look at the next chapter in this fantastic series that continues to make the dreams of all Star Wars fans come true. From battling across the stars in your own X-wing, to facing off in "Who would win?" match-ups like Darth Maul vs. Yoda, and playing with the unchecked power of Kylo Ren and The First Order, Star Wars Battlefront II looks to up the ante on what fans have come to expect from a Star Wars game.

The Sexy Brutale Large Image Games

Murder Mystery Game The Sexy Brutale Available Now on Xbox One

If you’re reading this, somehow The Sexy Brutale has shown up on your radar. So, we want to take this opportunity to provide a little background on what the game is about, how it came to be made, and what we hope players will (we hope!) enjoy about it. The Sexy Brutale is a murder mystery with a large cast of characters who live (and die, horribly) over the course of a single day in the mansion. It’s a game about observation and puzzle solving -- but more than anything else it’s a game about time. There's a lot more to the story itself (and I really hope you enjoy the story) but it’s the mechanics and impact of time that's the backbone of the experience. Charles, Tom, and... Read more

Tips for Adventuring in Neverwinter: The Cloaked Ascendancy

Adventurers! It’s time to return home as the battle continues in Neverwinter’s latest expansion, The Cloaked Ascendancy. Lord Neverember has reclaimed the River District, a new zone once home to the rich and noble, but new perils in the form of mad wizards threaten his rule. The city needs its heroes more than ever! In addition to a completely new storyline, The Cloaked Ascendancy brings back a remastered version of the Spellplague Caverns with both standard and epic versions available. If short and sweet is more your style, the Illusionist’s Gambit skirmish offers a new experience every time. We hear it can get rather fowl for some players... To welcome the latest expansion to...

An Inside Look at NBA Playgrounds, Coming Soon to Xbox One

With a roster of over 200 players that includes Allen Iverson, LeBron James, Steph Curry and other NBA Legends, we couldn’t be more excited to announce NBA Playgrounds, a brand-new arcade basketball game built on the Unreal 4 engine, coming soon to Xbox One. Basketball has become an international sport and it shouldn’t be surprising that our game, NBA Playgrounds, has been worked on collaboratively by members of my team at Saber Interactive in locations that span the globe. But how did this game all come together? The idea for Playgrounds came about years ago, when my “dad band” performed at a backyard party for one of the executives in the NBA. Look me up on YouTube… on second... Read more

Aaero Small Image Aaero Small Image Games

Aaero Launches April 11 on Xbox One

While working together at Codemasters and then later at FreeStyleGames, Dan and I had regularly joked that big studios were getting too complicated and we should probably ‘go indie’ and make a game between the two of us. I didn’t think we’d ever actually do it, though. As it happens, it turned out that’s exactly what we did! Aaero came about as the answer to a list of things we wanted to achieve with a game. First, we wanted to create a game that delivered the buzz you get playing rhythm games and having the action synched with the music, but without limiting it to rigidly tapping buttons on beat. Moving away from the age of plastic gaming instruments, we didn’t... Read more
