Elex, announced today from Nordic Games and Piranha Bytes, seems a strange concept on the face of it.
A post-apocalyptic universe where sci-fi meets fantasy in a seamlessly stunning blend of elements. Elex will challenge you with interesting characters, mutant creatures, deep moral choices and thrilling action.
You decide which path to take, man or machine. There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to making your own way in the world of Magalan.
Civilised and with a population of billions, Magalan was looking to the future so hard that it missed the meteor heading straight for it. Those who survived are now locked in a battle to stay as survivors.
At the centre of this fight is the element, Elex. This precious resource arrived in limited quantities with the meteor. This new element can power machines and open the door to magic. It can also re-sculpt life into new and terrifying forms.
Part of your quest is to help decide which of these choices should be the future of Magalan. Can the magic and tech save this world, or will this power destroy what is left of Magalan.
The game will feature an open world exploration mechanic where you will have access to all five regions, right from the very start. You’ll be able to go exactly where you want to, when you want to.
There will be many weapons to defend yourself with. From swords and axes to bows, crossbows and harpoons, you’ll have arguably the widest selection of armaments ever assembled.You could also pick up a shotgun, plasma rifle or flame thrower. Thanks to the power of the meteor’s element cargo, the list is endless.
You’ll be able to find a companion in Elex too. The game encourages you to choose a faction to influence how the world will choose to recover. This, in turn will allow you to fully develop your individual skills.
If you’d like to know more about it, head on over to the game’s own website, but be sure to head back to view the new ‘Mood’ trailer, below.
Resident Evil 5 will hit Xbox One on June 28th, making it the fourth Resident Evil title to be enhanced and re-released on the console, the first being the remake of the original, the second being the prequel Resident Evil Zero, and the most recent being Resident Evil 6, which we thoroughly enjoyed despite its flaws.
Featuring all previously released DLC, Resident Evil 5 on Xbox One will be packing a huge 71 achievements to collect, more than enough to keep you occupied until Resident Evil 4 sees it’s enhanced re-release on the Xbox One later this year. And with rumours flying all over the place about what’s coming next for the survival horror series, with a possible Resident Evil 7 on the cards for E3, as well as more information about the remake of Resident Evil 2, there’s no better time to reacquaint yourself with the ridiculous yet entertaining story.
One Piece Burning Blood, based on the popular Anime & Manga, brings fast-paced, 3 vs 3 melee combat to Xbox One this Friday, June 3.
Engage in massive brawls by strategically choosing your team of characters and swapping them out during the heat of battle. Use Logia Moves for unique abilities and the powerful Haki blow to break through enemy defences, while Devil Fruits are the source of massive Special Attacks.
Featuring a multitude of different game modes, One Piece Burning Blood is also the first ‘One Piece’ game ever to be released on an Xbox console.
The third episode for Hitman, Marrakesh, launches today with featured mission, ‘A Gilded Cage’, taking Agent 47 to the busy market city of Marrakesh to target corrupt private banker Claus Strandberg and his accomplice, Army General Reza Zaydan, before the city of contrasts collapses into a riot.
Marrakesh marries the concepts of the first two offerings of HITMAN – Paris and Sapienza,
said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive.
We have the fortressed, at times claustrophobic, nature of the Showstopper event in Paris combined with the expansiveness and lived-in feeling of Sapienza all in one. I think Marrakesh is really going to give players a lot to explore and experiment with.
Marrakesh offers a richly detailed, dense creative stealth sandbox featuring two targets, a host of opportunities and challenges to explore and a living environment that transports you from crowded markets to magical souks, from the cool elegance of the Swedish consulate to the military-occupied remains of an abandoned school. Infiltrate a consulate under siege to kill a man everyone hates and take out the army general that freed him from his prison shackles.

I’m not going to hide this one bit. As a gamer, I loved Mariokart. Even if it was on one of the other platforms. I don’t care. It was immense fun. I’ve been longing for something that comes anywhere near it on Xbox for a long time. I had hoped that Coffin Dodgers would, but sadly, it fell short.
Deck13 and Varkian Empire have just announced a title that might finally give the plumber’s racing game a run for its money at last.
Obliteracers is an award-winning party racer for up to 16 racers. What’s the difference? Well, all 16 racers are on the same screen, making the action chaotic and full of mayhem.
The game is less about speed and more about keeping up with the other players, using weapons to knock them out of the race. It is destroy, or be destroyed. Compete with friends locally or online. Obliterators will also include dozens of game modifiers to keep it fresh.
Now, you might have a look at the trailer below and think to yourself, ‘I’ve seen that before’. And you’d be right. Obliteracers started out as Space Dust Racers and for reasons unknown, changed its name. As you may remember, the studio directors grew up playing Mario Kart, Micro Machines and Crash Team Racing and wanted to produce a title that would give their own children the experience they had.
The game, on Steam at the moment, offers the unique ability to use smartphones and laptops as extra controllers, although there’s no word on whether this will be an option on the Xbox One version on release. This manic racer will feature highly customisable party game modes with endless variety.
Play it simple as a newbie, or use advanced strategies as a veteran. Drop in and drop out as and when you please, like when you’ve run out of beer. Obliteracers aims to please all racing fans.
The following trailer, in the absence of an Xbox trailer, features the smartphone controller, which may or may not be in the console version.
Obliteracers will be heading to Xbox One on the 15th of July.
The voodoo-infused roguelike action RPG, Full Mojo Rampage, will be enchanting Xbox One on June 28th.
