    Halo fans got good news today as 343 Industries Community Director Brian Jarrard announced the long-awaited Halo Reach will launch on Xbox One and PC starting December 3.

    Bungie's last foray into the Halo series takes place before the events of the first game and follows a group of Spartans attempting to stave off the Covenant's forces and, subsequently, the planet's ruin.

    Upgraded with 4K visuals, Halo Reach's release marks the completion of the Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. Unfortunately though, PC fans will have to wait a bit longer to have every Halo game in their Steam libraries. Starting with Halo Reach, each game in the Master Chief Collection will eventually make its way to PC before the end of 2020.

    Dontnod’s New Game, Tell Me Why, Promotes Transgender Equality

    Today at X019, Xbox Games Studios announced a brand-new IP from French developer Dontnod, the makers of Life is Strange. Tell Me Why focuses on the close bond between two twins: Tyler and Alyson Ronan. A “true-to-life story” determined by player choice, Tell Me Why will entrust players with the emotionally challenging childhood of its protagonists as they come to grips with their past and grow into adulthood in Alaska.

    “The core mechanic of the game is the special bond Tyler and Alyson share and is also a theme strongly anchored into the Dontnod storytelling approach,” says game director Florent Guillaume. “Over the course of the story, players will explore the identical twins’ different memories of key events and choose which memory to believe. Ultimately, the choices players make determine the strength of the twins’ bond – and the future course of their lives.”

    Aside from the already inventive narrative approach, Tell Me Why pushes for inclusiveness as one of the twins, Tyler, is a transgender man.

    “Microsoft and Dontnod have approached Tyler with a real commitment to authenticity,” explained Nick Adams, Director of Transgender Representation at GLAAD. “Tyler is a fully-realized, endearing character, whose story is not reduced to simplistic trans tropes. Creating a playable lead trans character –and taking such care to get it right –raises the bar for future LGBTQ inclusion in gaming.”

    The entirety of Tell Me Why will release in Summer 2020, despite being an episodic adventure broken into three parts. The game will be free to those with Xbox Game Pass and available for purchase on Xbox One, Windows PC, and Steam.

    10 Exciting Details About Obsidian’s Grounded 

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    friends.jpeg

    Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios
    Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
    Release: 2020
    Platform: Xbox One, PC

    Obsidian Entertainment is best known for its work on RPGs like Pillars of Eternity, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Outer Worlds, but the team has recently been hard at work on something entirely new: a survival game where you are the size of a bug. We spent a day at Obsidian checking out the game and walked away with this list of 10 reasons you should be excited about this offbeat project. 

    See the world from a different perspective: Grounded is set in an Earth-like environment, but you are bug-sized, so everything looks incredibly different from the ground. Tiny bugs become fearsome beasts, and little pieces of garbage become potential shelters. 

    Build new tech: Like most survival games, you begin the game with meager supplies, but as you gather twigs and pebbles you can construct makeshift weapons, huts, and other useful tools. For example, sap can be combined with twigs to create torches, and insect exoskeletons can be used to craft armor. 

    Humorous story: As the game begins, you shrink down to the size of an ant to conduct a few science experiments. But surprise! Things quickly go haywire and you are unable to grow back to your normal size. A zany robot walks you through the early hours and helps you survive the night, but we suspect there is more going on with this unnamed bot than it initially seems. Ultimately, Grounded looks to offer a lighthearted and fun story.

    Four-player co-op: Grounded lets you choose from one of four different characters: Max, Willow, Pete, and Hoops. All four characters have the same skills and abilities, but players can invite their real-life friends into their game to help build camps and take down hostile creatures, such as spiders.

    Simulated world: Grounded is a simulated world, meaning that the other insects and critters in your yard will continue to live their lives even when not in view. When they are around, you can watch the bugs hunt and fight each other. Also, as players hunt and scavenge they might create food shortages, which will cause ripples through the ecosystem. 

    Things grow over time: To compensate for greedy scavengers, all of the plants in Grounded slowly grow back over time, so if you return to an old area after a long hiatus, it might feel new again. 

    Play in first or third person: Is this really that exciting? I don’t know. You tell me? But I didn’t know where else to put this little fact.

    Light RPG elements: Obsidian didn’t go in-depth about the RPG systems, but it did promise that players will evolve and grow during their time with the game. As you level up you’ll unlock new tiers of the tech tree. 

    A variety of biomes: We only saw the starting zone during our preview, but Obsidian promises that there will be a wide variety of environments in the final game. The opening zone looks like a traditional grass-filled lawn, but there will be a wider variety of locals in the final game. This is just speculation, but the final game could have small puddles that act like lakes or sandboxes that feel like massive deserts.

    Flexible evolving design: One neat aspect of Grounded is that Obsidian has kept its team size to around a dozen people. This has allowed the studio to experiment wildly with the game. Obsidian plans to keep the team size small so they can continue to experiment with the design over the early access period. Overall, this means that the Grounded team should be incredibly nimble and be able to quickly respond to player feedback as they implement new ideas.

    Obsidian plans to launch Grounded into early access in the Spring on Xbox One and PC; the game will also be part of Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription, so you don’t have long to wait to check out this unique project.

    During today's X019 presentation, Executive Producer Louise O'Connor at Rare announced the studio is currently in production on its newest IP, titled Everwild.

    The game's first trailer reveals the journey of three characters as they interact with a mythical world where strange beasts roam an unfamiliar place. In classic Rare fashion, the game was designed with a gorgeous array of colors and striking character designs. Outside of the few shots of the different biomes, the trailer did not reveal combat or what players can expect gameplay-wise when Everwild eventually releases.

    In a press release, studio head Craig Duncan also stressed that the game is in the early stages of production and did not give fans a release date for Rare's first new title since Sea of Thieves.
