Microsoft has filed a Trademark for Eden Falls, with the classifications that it will be an online based computer game for entertainment services. What is more interesting is that Eden Falls is the name of a game already in development by Finnish studio’s Brimstone Interactive who confirmed previously via their blog that a HD PC version of their game would be released after the game has hit mobile devices.
With Microsoft’s latest Trademark application this could indicate that Microsoft Studio’s has picked up the publishing rights to Eden Falls and the game could be released on Windows Phone, Windows 8 PC and Xbox One later this year.
Eden Falls is described as a mature single player RPG that will deal with some heavy topics targeted towards a mature, adult audience. Sex, drugs and violence will all play their part through-out the story. It is an episodic 5 part game due for release Fall 2014 as confirmed by the Eden Falls blog.
Microsoft has issued nothing official on this, but more information could surface at E3 2014 this June. We’ll keep you posted.
Ahead of the new-gen XBOX reveal set for tomorrow which can be viewed online at Xbox.com or via the console from 6pm BST UK Time, around 1pm in the US, a new trademark for “Forza Vista” has surfaced on the USPTO.gov website from Microsoft.
It has specifically been trademarked for “a feature of interactive video game software which allows players to obtain statistical information of internal and external features of a vehicle and to virtually navigate and operate those vehicles.” This suggests that a new Forza game announcement should follow soon and that it’ll likely have Forza Vista as some Xbox Smartglass tool (more than likely).
Although nothing has yet been announced by Microsoft, you can bet your bollocks that as an exclusive Xbox franchise this will be announced alongside the new XBOX console reveal.
We can’t wait! Expect us to post all the announcements tomorrow following the reveal itself.
Microsoft has filed a trademark by the name of “Glacier Blast” for use within game software, so the logical explanation is that Microsoft Studio’s are either working on or soon to publish an upcoming game with the same name.
Already in our minds we can perceive an image of an Xbox LIVE Arcade game, probably Kinect enabled too of our Xbox LIVE Avatars having to shoot through blocks of ice in a race against time for survival. Nothing as of yet has been confirmed or announced from the Xbox camp back at Microsoft HQ, but when they do – expect us to report back.
If in the meantime you would like to try guessing what kind of a game Glacier Blast could be, share your thoughts in the comments box below.
