Curve Digital confirm Stealth Inc. 2


Curve Digital, the studio behind the soon to be incoming Steampunk platformer, The Swindle, have today confirmed that the sequel to Stealth Inc. will be releasing on Xbox One in April this year.

Called Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, the platformer will feature a ‘Metroidvania’ style overworld with fully explorable levels, all surrounding a sinister cloning facility with varied and detailed environments.

Specialised equipment can be used to unlock new areas and find new ways to solve old puzzles, all in HD, with Curve saying it will run at 60fps. Stealth Inc 2 will also feature a full co-op mode where one player controls the clone and the other uses a variety of tools and skills to keep the player hidden and protected.

The idea is to rescue your fellow clones and make your escape, with the rewards being dished out for exploration and experimentation, all while trying not to be seen. If you can be seen, you’re probably already dead.

Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones is coming out, all being well, in April. Here’s a little taste from the launch trailer from last October on another platform, hopefully Curve will update it to reflect it coming out on a superior platform, who knows.

Mortal Kombat X – official story trailer


NetherRealm Studios has issued another video to keep us on the edge of our seats whilst we await the up and coming release of Mortal Kombat X.

For those of you who don’t know, Mortal Kombat X takes place 25 years after the events of Mortal Kombat (2011). The new generation of characters discover that Outworld is not the only threat they face.

This video, the official story trailer, shows us the newest fighters to join Cassie Cage, including Jacqueline Briggs, daughter of Jax, Takashi Takeda, son of Kenshi, and Kung Jin, descendant of Kung Lao.

Halfbrick confirm release date of new fruitfulness


I have a feeling that nearly everyone on the planet has played Fruit Ninja on one platform or another. I’ve played it many times on a couple of different platforms and it’s a lovely way to pass some time in a gaming way. Developer, Halfbrick Studios have announced a release date for their follow-up to the smash-hit, swipey, fruit butchering ninja game.

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 will feature all of the fun and excitement of the original, plus five new game modes for the whole family to enjoy.

These new multiplayer modes will allow up to four simultaneous players to jump in on the action, with Battle and Party modes providing the perfect place to test those seasoned ninja skills. There’ll be a new progression system, allowing you to earn blades, dojos and belts in exchange for completing challenges.

Each mode takes place at the Blueberry Moon Festival and is presented by one of the new Fruit Ninja team members, Katsuro, Mari, Han and Nobu. Become a master of stealth by dodging shurikens, hacking through bamboo and avoiding those spotlights.

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is coming exclusively to Xbox One on the 18th of March and to celebrate, Halfbrick have released this rather funky live-action trailer. What do you think?

See both sides of the story of Dying Light


Have you ever wondered, while running scared from the zombie apocalypse, what would it be like if it suddenly turned into the middle of the day?

Well, thanks to Techland’s new funky trailer, you can do just that.

View the new video at Dying Light’s new funky website and when you want to see the difference between night and day, give your trusty Z key a tap and hold and it’ll magically change for you.

This interactive story trailer will show you life and death in the quarantine zone, which is handy, as that’s what Techland have called it. It’s really very clever, as it will seamlessly show you the differences between survival in the night and day in the world of Dying Light.

Clever stuff. Can I find a sneak peek? Of course. Let us know what you think after watching this.

Slender man to arrive on Xbox One


Back in 2013, a gaming phenomenon arose from the depths, based on an urban legend that has no basis in fact, no matter how much YouTube would try to make you believe otherwise.

You’ve probably seen PewDiePie being scared witless at Slender: The Arrival and Xbox 360 owners have had this dubious opportunity for a little while now. Off the back of what the studio describes as ‘big sales’ on all current platforms, Blue Isle Studios has announced that Slender: The Arrival will be making it’s debut on the Xbox One on the 25th of March via the ID@Xbox program.

I’m sure you all know the story, eye-witness accounts describe a thin, tall man dressed in black, with a featureless face roaming around the countryside. A friend of the main character sets off in search of the elusive Slender man and disappears. It’s up to you to go and find her and find out if Slender is the culprit.

Here’s the release trailer and remember, you’re not always alone in the woods.


Fable Legends will be free to play


Residents of Albion! Did you hear the news?

#FableLegends will be free to play! Head to our website for more information about this exciting announcement!:

— Lionhead Studios (@LionheadStudios) February 26, 2015

You read it right, Fable Legends will be free to play on Xbox One (with an active Xbox Live Gold membership) and for Windows 10.

So what does free to play actually mean for Fables Legends? Over on the official Fable Legends website the developers; Lionhead Studios, laid out three commitments:

Open – You’ll be able to play Fable Legends from beginning-to-end without spending a penny. That means you’ll have access to the entirety of Fable Legends’ storyline and all of the quests Lionhead Studios release in 2015 and then… forever. Fair – Everything in Fable Legends that affects gameplay can be earned by simply playing the game. Generous – Lionhead Studios have a clear goal to have a happy community of players. To that extent they’ll be updating the game with exciting new quests to play through, Heroes to play as, Villain creatures to control, and lots more.

Playing Fable Legends, either as a Hero or Villain, will earn players Silver. This Silver can be spent in-game on a selection of goodies that make your Hero and creatures more powerful.

As with all free to play models, there will be a real-world money option also. Players will be able to purchase gold to use in the same way as silver. Lionhead Studios have said this gold can be used to ‘purchase many of the items that are also available for silver’. This could potentially mean that real-world money won’t open up all items to players to retain a sense of fairness.
