    A second batch of games is headed to the Xbox One backward compatibility list this week, bringing 3 new titles. Included in this round are Darksiders, Darksiders II, and Assassin's Creed Revelations. Darksiders, Darksiders II and Assassin's Creed Revelations are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today https://t.co/qPMRNrLoTQ pic.twitter.com/pqaFZSEHVT— Larry Hryb 💬 (@majornelson) March 23, 2017 For anyone unfamiliar with these particular titles, Assassin's Creed Revelations is a continuation of the popular series in which protagonist Ezio travels to the heart of the Ottoman Empire to take on an army of templars. The Darksiders series, on the other hand, places you in the shoes of on of the four horseman of the apocalypse as you battle both angels and demons. Darksiders II has you picking up the mantle once again after you're awakened by the end of days. If you already own these games, you should be able to start playing them right away on your Xbox One. That said, if ...

    Activision has already confirmed a sequel to popular online shooter Destiny is coming this year, and now we might now when: September 8. The date comes from a pair of images that allegedly show retail posters for the game in Italian, advertising a September 8 release date and a Destiny 2 logo. The posters, which popped up on both Imgur and Italian site Lega (via Polygon), show the same poster, but from different angles. Outside of the release date, the posters also seem to point to some type of beta event that will run ahead of release. And as Polygon points out, though largely illegible, the blue portion in the upper right corner of the poster implies that PS4 users may get access to the beta a week earlier than other platforms. There's very little known about Destiny 2 at the moment, as Bungie and Activision have remained relatively mum outside of a confirmation that the sequel is indeed coming this year. That said, a September 8 launch date certainly sounds plausible, as the ...

  • 03/23/17--11:00: Best Xbox One headsets
  • Boost your Xbox One audio! Microsoft brought voice communication to the mainstream on home gaming consoles. The Xbox 360 headset almost became part of the console's image, and partying up with your friends to communicate over voice chat is now a standard console feature. As such, there's a flood of Xbox One headsets on the market — and since the latest versions of the Xbox One controller support 3.5 mm jacks you can use practically any headset with an in-line mic to communicate over Xbox Live. While the basic $10 single-piece headset might suffice for many, even the most casual gamer will benefit from picking up a dedicated headset. Here are some of the best headsets designed for use with the Xbox One. Updated March 30, 2017: We've surveyed the market and determined that these are still the best Xbox One headsets money can buy. With E3 around the corner, that could soon change, as hardware vendors gear up to show off their new products. Are there any headsets you've been using...

    Before Resident Evil took the world by storm, Alone in the Dark was the best known survival horror game. Creator Frédérick Raynal is back with a new horror adventure for consoles and PC, 2Dark. In this truly dark game, players must rescue children from kidnappers and serial killers, lest they suffer gruesome fates. See on the Xbox Store Dark beginnings As 2Dark's introduction begins, we meet police officer Smith on a camping trip with his wife and kids during the 1960s. The rest of the family goes out to look for firewood while Smith stays behind setting up their tents. Soon, a scream rings out from the forest. Smith runs over to discover his wife's decapitated corpse. Ouch, man! Meanwhile a truck drives away with his screaming kids locked in the back. On foot, Smith has no chance to stop the truck. His whole family is lost in one fateful night. The game itself picks up seven years later, in 1975. Smith never stopped looking for his stolen children, but the search has ta...

    In what has become a nearly daily release cadence, a fresh update is set to roll out to Xbox One Insiders in the Alpha release ring this evening. As has been the norm with recent releases, this update doesn't contain any new features of note. That said, there are some fixes for nagging issues, as well as a couple of known issues still lingering around to be aware of. Here's a look at what's new. DETAILS OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1703.170321-1800 Available: 6:00PM PDT 3/23 (1:00AM GMT 24/3) FIXES: In-Game Purchases: Fixed an issue which prevented users from purchasing in-game content in certain games (including Overwatch and Destiny).

    If you've had your fill of Mass Effect: Andromeda's lengthy single player for the time being, there's some new multiplayer content to check out now. BioWare has kicked off the first of the game's many upcoming APEX missions, which act as temporary, story-driven multiplayer scenarios that players can take part in. The first mission launching this week is called "Drack's Missing Scouts." Throughout the mission, you'll have to investigate Firebase Paradox in search of some lost krogan patrols, where you'll presumably end up running into plenty of Kett to kill. On top of the mission itself, you'll also get to access a new multiplayer character, a Krogan Gladiator that just happens to be pretty handy with a hammer. This mission will be available from March 23-27, giving you a small window to check it out with your friends before the next APEX mission hits. Doing so will, of course, net you Mission Funds to spend on new stuff. Still on the fence Mass Effect: Andromeda? Be sure to giv...

    The year is 2002. The 90s haven't quite been forgotten. VHS is still a thing. And smartphones (gasp!) don't exist. Nu-metal was all the rage, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 50-year anniversary on the throne, and the original Xbox had recently burst onto the scene, in late 2001. The console itself wasn't a revolution, but the service it gave rise to changed the face of gaming forever. How did Microsoft explain this unique concept to the industry? Using a VHS cassette, of course. Prepare yourself for some early 2000s marketing cringe. I recently picked up an Xbox Live neon sign from eBay, and it came with a curious disc and VHS cassette. Upon further perusal, I found myself transported to June 2002, when these packages were presumably sent out by Redmond PR to various industry figures and press. (In 2002, I was skipping school to play Halo Combat Evolved, so I have to believe there's some sort of quantum feedback loop going on here.) This video has been posted on the intern...

    Fable Fortune looks to be a must-try for both fans of franchise games and card game veterans. Here's why. The Fable franchise has been dragged through a lot of mud in recent years, following several unsuccessful projects which deviated from its role-playing roots. After the release of a scaled-down arcade game, an on-rails Kinect experience and a remaster, the series found itself dropping the identity grounded in its earlier titles. Coming off a rocky few years, the cancellation of the cooperative RPG, Fable Legends, put the future of the series in jeopardy. With the game's creator having closed its doors, the series seemingly found itself lost in limbo without a developer. It's now been seven years since the last Fable RPG, and fans are clearly clamoring for another experience set in its rich universe. While we've still yet to hear of another true Fable title, Fable Fortune looks to be the next step toward reviving the seemingly abandoned franchise. Previously developed alon...
