Join Us for the Sea of Thieves Final Beta March 9-11
It seems like just yesterday that we launched the Insider Programme for Sea of Thieves. We felt that getting our game into player’s hands early, learning from their feedback and growing a community around this game was critical for a new, shared-world experience like Sea of Thieves. We started with our first 1,000 players in December 2016, and we have been steadily growing the player base and feature set throughout the last year… Read more

Train Sim World: Founders Edition Pulls Into the Station Today on Xbox One
Sure, it’s fun to race cars around the track or build towering cities, but have you tried commanding thousands of tonnes of freight and human passengers at over a 100mph, rushing through beautiful countryside and busy cities? The everyday reality of rail networks is truly awe inspiring — especially the drivers and engineers who control these mechanical marvels and experience a power, speed, and excitement that few people come close to… Read more

Warframe: The New Eidolons Have Arrived
I will still never forget the moment we debuted the Plains of Eidolon at TennoCon 2017. This was something that we had miraculously managed to keep hidden for months, something that didn’t once slip out of our mouths on the many livestreams before the big reveal. Rebecca Ford, our Live Ops & Community Director, and I nervously played the demo live for thousands of Tenno in utter disbelief that what they were watching was actually Warframe… Read more

Xbox One Storytellers: CD Projekt RED on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
It’s hard to match the narrative scope and immersive experience that a compelling story-driven game has over other storytelling mediums, allowing players not only to fall into the world of a well-crafted story but to experience it firsthand. These types of games can empower someone with a new perspective, or let us live a double-life as a superhero. Narrative-driven games allow us to become someone we’re not… Read more



The Story of I in Switch – Or Die Trying on Xbox One
We are Threye Interactive, an indie game studio from India (Threye is pronounced like the number three). We started off by making games of the war gaming genre with lots of explosions and shooting, but when we got an invite from ID@Xbox to bring one of our titles to Xbox One, we decided to go back to the basics – the classic puzzle platformer. We were looking for a game that revolved around a character… Read more

Far Cry 5 Weaves a Frightening Story into Series’ Familiar Sandbox Formula
Compelling, charismatic, and all kinds of crazy, Far Cry 3’s Vaas, and Far Cry 4’s Pagin Min, significantly raised the bar on video game villainy. These baddies were so good, in fact, many felt they were underused or not done proper justice by their respective game’s stories. Far Cry 5 wastes no time addressing this issue, immediately introducing players to cult leader Joseph Seed – dubbed “The Father” by his fanatical followers… Read more

And if you haven’t heard of Shoppe Keep, it’s a game like no other – instead of playing as an epic fantasy hero, Shoppe Keep puts you in the shoes of an ordinary store owner and tasks you with selling swords, shields and armor.
