To prepare for the release of Rome: Son of Rome for Xbox One on November 22nd, Microsoft have teamed with Machinma to produce a new web series called The Fall. Episode 1 of this live action series has been released today.
Roman soldier Marius Titus’ story is put into motion as his world is shattered by the tragic death of his family at the hands of barbarians.
Xbox has today announced that Machinima will launch a new app exclusively on Xbox One, in conjunction with the console’s release on November 22nd.
Machinima’s new app takes advantage of Xbox One’s exclusive “Snap” feature, giving gamers the ability to do two things at once, on the same screen. Simply say “Xbox, Snap Machinima” while playing a game and Machinima will launch on the right side of your TV screen.
One of the first things “Xbox, Snap Machinima” will do is offer curated videos from Machinima’s extensive library, based on the current game you’re playing. These videos will provide everything from game walk-throughs, game reviews, help videos and more. Additionally on offer is an enhanced Snap experience for select Xbox One titles called “Wingman”, that will provide richer, custom-created and exclusive videos to complement gameplay and offer everything from in-game help and tutorials to strategy videos.
In addition to the Snap experiences, Machinima is also launching an Xbox One SmartGlass experience on November 22, giving users a second-screen companion which allows you to keep a game full-screen on the TV while you receive a sidekick Machinima experience on your smartphone or tablet.
Exciting updates and additions to the app will be announced in advance of launch on November 22.

Co-published by D3Publisher and Digital Reality, Black Knight Sword explores a bizarre world that pits players in the role of The Black Knight as he attempts to rid the world of the villainous and super evil Dark Princess. With a strange spin on a classic fairytale, Black Knight Sword blends traditional side-scrolling action with an unprecedented visual style.
I guarantee that you’ve never seen any game like it.
A throwback to the 16-bit era, Black Knight Sword has simple, yet addictive gameplay within a stylized hand-drawn puppet theater world.
