It was hinted when the Halo: Spartan Assault achievements were revealed that Arcade titles on the Xbox One could have 1000 Gamerscore when the One launches next Friday. After much speculating, this comment was released by a Microsoft employee. “On Xbox One games are games. All games follow the same policies for achievements and Gamerscore,”. That’s something that I couldn’t agree more with.
What this means is that downloadable launch titles such as Killer Instinct, PowerStar Golf, LocoCycle, Crimson Dragon and all future arcade titles, or I guess I should call them downloadable games now, will also have the 1000 Gamerscore benchmark.
Last night at Evo during a video presentation for Killer Instinct’s latest character Glacius, an interesting teaser came up on screen at the end. You see an axe thrown into a tree. The axe is of course the weapon of choice for Killer Instinct alumni, Chief Thunder. Chief Thunder was introduced in the original Killer Instinct and looks to be the next character reveal for the Xbox One exclusive.
Below you’ll find an image of Chief Thunder in his prime, as well as the gameplay demo from last night. Enjoy!
We’ll have more Killer Instinct news for you as it becomes available.
