One the most highly anticipated Xbox One exclusives of 2016, ReCore has just yesterday revealed that the release date that was originally scheduled for Spring of this year with now be pushed back to later in the year. This disappointing news came just days after Platinum Games, the team working on Scalebound, another Xbox One Exclusive revealed that Scalebound, would also now be pushed back until 2017.

We are only 7 days into the new year which Microsoft dubbed to be the biggest year in Xbox One history, and already two of the biggest anticipated Xbox One Exclusives have received lengthy delays on the release dates. The issues that we have these days is that when a game launches you do want a fully functioning  game, and sometimes that does mean waiting a little bit longer while companies iron out any final issues, its finding that balance between keeping gamers happy and delivering a great finished product.

What is ReCore.

If this is the first time you have heared about the Xbox One Exclusive, ReCore, The game sees players take control of a human who is now one of the last remaining humans on the planet, the game with see you team up with & forge friendships with robot companions, while you travel around the mysterious planet. As far as the objectives in the game go that is just as mysterious as the game is dubbed to be, but check out the trailer below to see it that gets you any more pumped for it.

Be sure to keep an eye out on the site as we will keep you up to date with any new information about ReCore.


ID@Xbox Game Nova-111 coming soon to Xbox One

Nova-111 Coming to Xbox One early 2015

The ID@Xbox programme is most definitely in full swing now, every week more and more games are being announced thanks to the programme and the latest game to be added to that list is Funktronic Labs and Curve Digital game, Nova-111.

Funktronic Labs and Curve Digital have teamed up to bring us Nova-111, which is a very interesting game indeed. Nova-111 will be a Real-time and Turn-based hybrid and that’s definitely something you dont hear everyday.

ID@Xbox game Nova-111Nova-111 is a Sci-fi themed adventure game that see you take control of a science-vessel on a mission to find missing scientists that are scattered on various foreign planets, no game would be complete with out some enemies to stop you in your path( Alien Creatures in this case) and puzzles along the way.

Nova-111 looks set to be a great edition to the Xbox One marketplace however, the Turn-based, Real-time hybrid has many people sceptical about just how well this game will run. only time will tell.

Evolve: coming to Xbox One 2014

Evolve Looking to set a new standard for Online Multiplayer

From the creators of Left 4 Dead, possibly one of the best multiplayer fps of all times, comes Evolve. 2KStudios and

Evolve sees you take control of a member of a 4 man/women team that is dropped into an Alien planet (aka planet Shear) and is tasked with hunting and taking out of an ever evolving super-beast before it gets too powerful. The super-beast (aka Godzilla) will also be controlled by a player (more on that below) creating 4v1 matches, basically if you can imagine left 4 dead with only the Tank and in space you will pretty much get the picture.

The game itself looks set to be a very good game that you can play with your mates, thinking back to some of the great games I played with pals on Left 4 dead makes me sure that this is going to compete with that if not even top it. Evolve will not just be Online based you will be able to play single player, which may be a nice way to get used to the different classes/characters.

Meet the Humans

As already pointed out above the interstellar hunters that are tasked with the mammoth task of tracking down and killing the Super-beast will consist of 4 members. All four members will have their own individuals classes which will collective create A nicely put together team. The classes available to the humans are:

  • AssaultThe assault class is pretty straight forward, if you are the guy that likes to get stuck straight in this is the class for you. Equip with Assault rifle, lighting gun and the ability to deploy a shield in front of yourself as you will most definitely be the centre of attention when it comes to the Super-beast.
  • MedicAs the medic you will find yourself looking after the team for the game, being the mate that makes sure everyone else is ok. With the medic class you will find yourself equipped with a gun that can heal team mates and one of the cool things a medic will have is the ability to tranquillize the monster to slow its movement.
  • Trapper The trapper class is basically the scout of the team. As the trapper you will be in charge of sound spike that will trigger when ever the beast is in the area, given the fact that the arenas seem to be very big the spikes will defiantly come in handy. Once you have located the monster you will also be able to deploy a mobile arena trapping the monster in that space for a certain amount of time allowing you time to damage if not destroy it.
  • SupportThe last class is the Support. The support class offers the player things like being able to use a flying craft that you control which is equipped with machine guns, not only that put you will be able to clock yourself. The neatest feature that I think the support class offers is the fact you can use a shield projector to protect other team mates.

That is all the different classes you can choose from for the human team. Evolve defiantly looks like a game in which communication is the key to winning, so I think getting a good set of mates together will make this game much more enjoyable.

Meet The Monster/Beast/Godzilla

Evolve Xbox One meet the monster

I can already tell that when this game is first released everybody will be trying their hardest to land themselves the spot as the Monster, I mean what would you rather, some big giant monster that is hungry for one thing and one thing only, Blood or some little humans with guns?. No in all seriousness the role you will take on as the monster isn’t what you would think at first. Yes as the Monster you are tasked with eliminating the human team but unfortunately it isn’t as simple as that. As the Monster you will first need to try to Evolve, to do so you will need to travel around the planet killing and eating other creatures including some of its team mates (aka minions). As the monster you will have many different abilities including being able to breathe fire and throw boulders aswell as being super fast and nimble.

This game looks set to be so much fun and I really hope it can deliever on what sounds like a great conspect. Games like Titanfall may be getting all the hype right now but I can see this game being very popular come the end of this year and I can’t wait for a release date.

Be sure to check back with us for more news on Evolve when it comes here on Xbox One freebies. Oh and before I forget, here is the launch trailer for you to check out. Enjoy!!
