Great news to all Xbox users as next week we get Microsoft's Ultimate Game Sale. It kicks off on July 7 and runs until July 13, 2015. There aren't complete details just yet and more to come as we get the news but this offer will bring us the best deals of the summer. Discounts of up to 50% on over 70 games across both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A nice little bonus is added as well if you are an Xbox live Gold Member with an additional up to 10% off savings.
A new Kings Quest title is here, and although it seems to veer away from the point and click game play from the original, the game still looks fantastic. For 9.99 an episode, or 39.99 for the season pass - which includes all episodes plus a bonus epilogue - is available for preorder on Xbox One and 360, PS4 and PS3, and PC. The first episode will be availabe for everything except the Microsoft consoles on July 28th (a day later, July 29 on Xbox One and 360).
Great news has come our way as starting in July there will be two games offered on Xbox One instead of the standard one new game monthly. As seen in the above image Microsoft confirms that Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag will be offered throughout the entire month of July on Xbox One. While the new title So Many Me will be offered for a month as well but starting on July 16 until August 15.
It was only a matter of time before Xbox began unleashing specific bundles for its big 2015 releases, and it appears as if we've seen one of the first. Today, Microsoft announced the Xbox One Forza Motorsport 6 Limited Edition Console to celebrate not only the launch of the game, but also to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the franchise.
I generally hate MMO's. Let me rephrase that: I loathe MMO's. I just never saw the fun in typing to chat, spending half my game play time swapping weapons and potions, or having to find a guild to truly enjoy the game. I want to play an MMO on my own time, which sometimes is only a few hours a week. Most MMO's don't give that kind of freedom. ESO definitely does.
Ubisoft's press conference lacked any real surprises until near the end, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately for them, they had a tough Microsoft press conference to live up to. I think they did fairly well, despite the lack of 'exciting' announcements.
Mass Effect 4 was inevitable, but today Electronic Arts announced further details about the latest game in the franchise. The most unfortunate detail? The game isn't coming until Holiday 2016. Not 2015, 2016. That is nearly 18 months away.
Before today, I had no desire to get into virtual reality gaming, or to ever buy anyone's VR peripheral. That has all changed today. At their E3 press conference, Microsoft announced a partnership with Oculus. Each and every Oculus Rift VR headsets sold will come with an Xbox One controller. Why would we need an Xbox One controller?
At Microsoft's E3 press conference, the company announced a new Early Access program for Xbox One games in development. Coverage from various websites on this program don't appear to be in line with each other. It appears as if some are saything that this program will only apply to games developed via the ID @ Xbox program. Time will tell and hopefully we will see some clarification soon.
The definitive edition of Darksiders 2 is heading to current-generation consoles this winter according to a press release received from Evolve PR. Outside of the obvious visual improvements, the Deathinitive Edition will come with a host of other upgrades (list below).
