Microsoft may be tinkering with playing Xbox One games on Windows

Microsoft may be experimenting with bringing support for Xbox One games to PC, or so suspect cybersleuths poking around in recent test versions of Windows 10. Microsoft have released Windows 10 editions of all their own Xbone games for several years now but if this turns out to be what some suspect, Windows may in future directly support any and all Xbox One games. Maybe.…

Sea Of Thieves lets friends sail for free this week

After a rough first year, Sea Of Thieves - the piratical MMO-lite - is on the up and up. Interest in the game (and all things piratical) is high, and its latest big update brought a swathe of new PvE activities to its previously competitive-focused seas. Rare reckon that now would be a good time to show the game to your friends, so if you…

Microsoft Studios rebranded Xbox Game Studios, still making PC games

You can tell spring is coming because snowdrops, crocus, and daffodils are emerging and the corporate rebrandings have begun. Microsoft yesterday announced that Xbox Game Studios is the new name for their game-making division formerly known as Microsoft Studios (formerly known as Microsoft Game Studios (fka Microsoft Games)). Xbox Game Studios will still release games on PC as Microsoft say "Xbox is our gaming brand…

Forza Horizon 4 now tootling around Fortune Island

While I was being dragged down to the depths of England last week (business reasons), Forza Horizon 4 was pushing higher into Scotland with the launch of its first expansion, Fortune Island. The fictional new hunk of rock has sprouted off Scotland, seemingly drawing inspiration for roads and landmarks from a number of places around the highlands and islands, including Skye. It's a wild and…

Sea Of Thieves’s Shrouded Spoils update adds more meat to its skellington bones

I'm officially resolved to return to Sea Of Thieves's world of online piratical nonsense thanks to today's new treasure-trove of content. The Shrouded Spoils update for once isn't focused on a single time-limited quest or global event, but rather fleshing out its existing systems. Fog threatens ships along jagged coastlines and more skeleton ships roam in more shapes and sizes, occasionally on their own skellington…

Forza 7 removes random ‘prize crates’

The loot box-y unlock system of 'prize crates' has been scoured from Forza Motorsport 7, replaced with a store with a random, rotating selection of stuff. Forza 7 never sold these boxes of cosmetics and cash boosters for real money but Microsoft had planned to start once the game had been out for a while, until all the people saying "Ha ha WHAT?" made them…

Parp parp! Forza Horizon 4 is out now

You are cordially invited today to tear around a cut-down chunk of northern Britain with a serious disrespect for road safety and the craft of dry stone walling, as Forza Horizon 4 launched this morning. And the latest arcade-y open-world racer from Playground Games is a good'un, Stirling Matheson said in our Forza Horizon 4 review. "It was fun and relaxing and not too difficult…

Sea Of Thieves’s Forsaken Shores update adds volcanoes, rowboats and legal commerce

As the nights grow colder and the days shorter, Rare's piratical MMO Sea Of Thieves is drawing me back with an enticingly warm-looking volcanic update, Forsaken Shores. This free new treasure-chest of content adds a new area to the map called The Devil's Roar filled with superheated environmental hazards - the floor is literally lava. It also introduces a new kind of store encountered out…

Take Forza Horizon 4 for a scenic British test drive with this free demo

I'm not much of a car person, but even I can appreciate Forza Horizon 4's open-world ambitions. Set across a large chunk of Britain's twisting roads and scenic hedgerows, players explore and compete in events both static and scheduled in a wide variety of (mostly) expensive-looking cars. You can give it a spin today, as a free demo just popped up on the Microsoft Store.…

Sea Of Thieves’s skellington-crewed Cursed Sails update is live

While aesthetically lovely, online swashbuckler Sea Of Thieves probably didn't have enough meat on its bones at launch. Today's update, Cursed Sails, is a bit paradoxical then - its roaming crews of evil skeleton sailors add a major new NPC threat to the oceans, just ironically without flesh. Adding a new time-limited quest, plus a goodly chunk of new things to see and do to…

Halo 5: Guardians looks to be coming to Windows 10, too

With Halo Infinite confirmed for release on PC (Windows 10, at least), it seems that Microsoft are easing up on the stranglehold that has kept the series console-exclusive for so long. The changes might just be retroactive, too, as eagle-eyed folks on Reddit spotted that Halo 5: Guardians is now listed on the Xbox site as being both an Xbox and Windows 10 game, although…

Gears of War 5 isn’t the only new Gears game

Gears of War is coming back in a big way. Today's Microsoft E3 presser ended with a huge blast of Gears reveals. The first: a Funko based Gears of War game called Gears POP! which is... just bewildering? I don't know. Are any of you Gearheads also big Funko collectors? Seems like a weird place to start bridging games into the Funkoverse, but it is…

Forza Horizon 4 racing across Britain in October

The next race 'em up in Playground Games' fine Forza Horizon series will zoom around a land near and dear to our own hearts. Microsoft today announced Forza Horizon 4, racing across "historic" Blighty in an open shared world. Their gameplay demo on stage included a street in Edinburgh I walked along less than an hour ago, which was surreal but quite pleasant to see.…

Ori and the Will of the Wisps brings all the feels

I'm not sure what your favorite part of Ori and the Blind Forest was. Was it the heartbreaking breaking of hearts throughout the story? Was it the whole Metroidvania but cute aspect? Was it the soundtrack that has few to no peers in gaming? Well, whatever made that game special for you, today at E3 we got our first full look at the follow-up, and…

Halo Infinite announced, returning to PC

John Halo is returning to PC with Halo Infinite, Microsoft announced today during their E3 presentation. It's a bit of a mystery for now, but expect jeeps, ringworlds, and shiny helmets. Halo 2 was the last game in the main sci-fi FPS series released on PC, though Halo 5's edit-o-sandbox Forge did come our way. Here, watch the announcement trailer.

Bang to rights: Crackdown 3 officially delayed into 2019

Another year, another delay for super-powered futurecop sandbox Crackdown 3. Following rumours, publishers Microsoft have confirmed that it's now due to arrive in February 2019. Better a good game later than a wonky one now, yeah? Though I wouldn't start getting excited for February just yet, given how many times the game has been delayed. It was originally slated to launch in 2016, then it…

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition arrives on Windows 10

The boys are low-poly now. As someone with a fairly fancy PC, it's easy to forget sometimes that not everyone has the GPU muscle to run the likes of Final Fantasy XV. An alternative presents itself today (for Windows 10 users, at least - it's OS-exclusive, sorry) in the form of Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, a low-fi demake of the game designed for mobile…

Sea Of Thieves’ Hungering Deep bares its teeth today

Ah, Sea of Thieves. A few slightly barnacled spots on its hull aside, it's a lovely little thing so long as you can get a crew together. It's just a little light on things to do, outside of crossing swords with other rival crews of players. Today's big update, The Hungering Deep, promises to bring a little bit more action to the table in a…

Sea of Thieves’s first big update washes ashore next week

Far too many gigabytes of Rare-made pirate MMO still litter my hard drive, reserved for an imagined day when Sea of Thieves's gorgeous ocean will be blessed with the vibrancy and variety it deserves. SOT achieved the peculiar duality of burning indelible ocean-faring images into my mind while being entirely forgettable moment-to-moment, and the concept that it might blossom into something meatier currently feels more…

State Of Decay 2 tweaks: FoV, mouse smoothing + more

Now that open-world zombie apocalypse survive 'em up State Of Decay 2 is properly out, rather than just for the billionaires who ordered their butlers to buy the special edition granting early access, you may be wondering: is it any good? For that, hey, look no further than our Brendan's State Of Decay 2 review. If you're already onboard, your question may be: do I…
