Despite the fact we think it's rather excellent, Quantum Break isn't without its fair share of bugs. Thankfully, Remedy Entertainment is on task to improve matters, and a patch to address a broad range of issues is rolling out to the Xbox One version of the game right now.
The full list of fixes are as follows:
Act 1 Part 1: Fixed a rare instance of taxi being missing from the intro cinematic
Act 1 Part 2: Fixed assets disappearing if players backtrack
Act 1 Part 2: Fixed an issue where players could not kill the guard in the parking lot
Act 1 Part 3: Fixed backtracking issues where some parts could unload
Act 1: Fixed overlapping audio in opening cinematic
Act 2 Part 1: Fixed Nick pathing issues
Act 2 Part 1: You can no longer get underneath the puzzle at the security station
Act 2 Part 2: First Chronon source renders properly

I cancelled my cable subscription a couple of months ago, and while I was able to cruise by with the Netflix, Amazon Video, and HBO Now apps on the Xbox One, I've started to miss live sports. Specifically, the NBA Playoffs are currently underway and my setup felt inadequate. Then I remembered the Xbox One had a Sling TV app. I learned the subscription service offers the channels I need to watch the Playoffs. If you don't have cable, this is a good way of watching the games on your Xbox One.
Sling TV lets you stream live shows and on-demand entertainment without the usual long-term contracts and hidden fees from cable companies. For $20 a month, you can watch over 20 channels including ESPN, AMC, CNN, HGTV, Cartoon Network, History, Disney, and more. More channel packs are available for $5 each.
The 2016 NBA Playoffs started on Saturday, April 16th and runs through a potential Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, June 19th. The games are shown on channels TNT, ESPN, and ABC. Just...
Microsoft has teamed up with Stark Industries to produce a special edition white Xbox One to help market the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie. The highlight of the unit, as well as its eye-catching design, is the Stark Arc Reactor replica located on the top side of the console. Unfortunately, you can't buy this particular console, but you could win one from Xbox France.
As noted by VG247, only three have been produced and all of them are set to be given away through social network accounts owned by the Xbox team in France. You'll need to follow them to find out just how you can enter to win one for yourself.

We must admit: we're saddened these aren't going up for sale as they look insanely cool.
Bethesda Softworks has released the Fallout 4 1.5 update for PC owners of the post-apocalypse game via Steam. The update, which will be released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions next week, adds the new Survival difficulty mode.
Survival is the highest difficulty mode created for Fallout 4, and changes the gameplay in many ways, such as enemies no longer showing up on a player's compass, eliminating Fast Travel, and more. It also adds support for the upcoming Far Harbor DLC pack, which will be released in May. Bethesda has posted what's new and what's fixed in the patch:
New Survival difficulty
Survival adds additional challenges including no fast travel, saving only when you sleep, increased lethality, diseases, fatigue, danger and more. See the in-game Help menu for more details.
Characters set to Survival difficulty appear under their own Character Selection filter
Third person camera movement improvements when player is close up against wa...
Frogger and Galaga Legions DX are the latest Xbox 360 games that can be played on Microsoft's Xbox One console via its backwards compatibility feature.
The new additions, as usual, were revealed on the Major Nelson Twitter page. Frogger is, of course, the Xbox 360 version of the classic arcade game from Konami, with players controlling the little creature as it tries to cross busy streets and other locations. Galaga Legions DX, from Namco Bandai, is a remake of the classic sci-fi arcade shooter with lots of new features and mode.
Microsoft added five more games to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list earlier this week.

id Software revealed today that the upcoming reboot of the DOOM first-person shooter franchise for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has a secret hidden in every level of its campaign. The secrets should please fans of the classic DOOM games.
SPOILER ALERT: Don't watch the video or read any further if you want to keep the secret intact.
As posted today on IGN's YouTube channel, every map in the campaign for DOOM will have a lever to find. Pulling the level will cause a secret door to open somewhere in that level that will lead the player to enter a portion of a classic map from either the original DOOM game or DOOM II, complete with its textures. The demons in the level are also in the same spots as the ones in the original games as well.
While the secret levels are only small sections of the full maps, the good news is that when they are unlocked, players can go back to DOOM's menu and play the full versions of the classic maps, as they are unlocked in the campaign. The DOOM...
The Canadian shomi streaming video service will launch an Xbox One app starting on May 3. It will allow subscribers to the service to access movies and TV shows from Microsoft's console.
The press release from shomi says:
Starting next week, shomi members can use the Xbox Live network on Xbox One to watch all the shows and movies they love, kids and family content, and shomi Collections. Xbox One owners will also be able to stream exclusive and buzz-worthy series, like Mr. Robot, Mad Dogs, SuperMansion, and Catastrophe, along with day-and-date releases of hit series Empire, Jane the Virgin, Fresh Off the Boat, iZOMBIE, and The Originals. The shomi app on Xbox One gives members the full shomi experience, in HD quality, with great new content added weekly.
The Xbox 360 already has a shomi app, as does Sony's rival PlayStation 4 console.
Frontier has announced that Elite Dangerous: Horizons is coming soon to Xbox One. The season of content brings with it some notable expansions, which include features like planetary landings, loot and crafting, multi-crew co-operative play and more – some of which are still in development. If you already own and enjoy Elite Dangerous, Horizons is a must-have due to planetary landings alone that really add to the overall immersive experience.
Once launched on Xbox One, Horizons will not only include planetary landings, but also the upcoming Engineers expansions, which will introduce loot and crafting systems. Those on Xbox One will be able to enjoy new features as they're added alongside PC brethren. You can read up on upcoming seasons for Elite Dangerous by heading to the official website.
Horizons for Xbox One will launch in Q2 2016, but you can already purchase and enjoy the season package on PC.

It has been reported that the next installment in the Call of Duty series of first-person shooters, rumored to be called Infinite Warfare, will include a remastered copy of Modern Warfare. A store pre-order card has been captured and shared displaying the special package.
The title has yet to be officially revealed by Activision and Infinity Ward, but already we've seen a listing on the Sony PlayStation Store and now this pre-order card.
We'll have to hold out until the companies make an announcement, but it'd be pretty neat to see a remastered MW included.
Update: In response to a (rather old) tweet from a fan, the official Call of Duty Twitter account all but confirmed a Modern Warfare remaster is in the works. We'll let the tweet speak for itself:

Update x2: More images have surfaced revealing more details about the included copy of the remastered Modern Warfare. It's noted that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Re...
Microsoft has confirmed that, after the required consultation period, it is indeed closing Fable developer Lionhead Studios in the UK, with today being its last day of operations.
Microsoft first announced that it was proposing that Lionhead close down in early March after deciding to end development of its RPG Fable Legends for the Xbox One and Windows 10. UK regulations required that Microsoft enter a consultation period, during which it could find a buyer for the studio. However, that did not happen.
Eurogamer got a statement from a Microsoft spokesperson:
"We can confirm that after much consideration over the six week consultation period with Lionhead employees, we have reached the decision to close Lionhead Studios. We have nothing but heart-felt thanks for the team at Lionhead for their significant contributions to Xbox and the games industry."
Lionhead Studios was formed in 1996 and was co-founded by famed designer Peter Molyneux. It developed games like Black and W...
Electronic Arts is sending out invites to media to attend a press event for the publisher's next game in its Battlefield series on Friday, May 6. EA will also livestream the premiere, via Twitch, on that date.
According to SegmentNext, the press invites will include checking out the first trailer from the next Battlefield game before it is posted online, and the press will also see content from the game that won't be posted to the public. Finally, the livestream of the Battlefield premiere will be held live from London.
No credible information on the next Battlefield game has leaked out onto the Internet so far, with some rumors claiming it will be set in the near future, and one even claiming it will be set during World War I. The last game in the series, Battlefield Hardline, moved away from the franchise's military theme for a "cops and robbers" game.

Daybreak Studios launched its free-to-play superhero MMO DC Universe Online today for the Xbox One. The servers for the game will be available on Xbox Live beginning at noon Eastern time (9 a.m. Pacific time).
DC Universe Online was previously released for the PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 platforms. In a blog post and FAQ, Daybreak says that Xbox One owners can already begin downloading the game before the servers go live and that it will be about a 35GB download. The content for the Xbox One version will be the same as the PC and PlayStation versions and the plan is to update all DC Universe Online platforms at the same time going forward.
Unfortunately, players in the Xbox One version of the game won't be able to play with their PC and PlayStation counterparts as cross-platform support is not available. Microsoft did recently reveal it has enabled developers to offer cross-platform play between the Xbox One and other PC and console games, but so far, there's been no ...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III players on the Nuk3town map are seeing a big alien ship destroy the level at the end of each match. It could be a teaser for the upcoming reveal of the next Call of Duty game.
As posted on YouTube channels like TheFriendlyMashing, the teaser definately shows some kind of alien craft appearing in the sky and detonating something that destroys the level, it then shows off a sci-fi logo or symbol. Previous rumors about the next Call of Duty game have claimed it will be set in the far future with space combat.
While publisher Actvision has not confirmed it, it's rumored that the game will be called Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and that it will be officially announced May 3 for a release date of November 4. A more recent report claims that the more expensive Legacy Edition of the game will include a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
