What’s in the Xbox Update Coming this Summer!

Last November, we transformed Xbox One to make it faster and more social with the New Xbox One Experience, and since then we’ve been delivering regular fan requested features and updates. Expected this week, we’re releasing into Preview a summer update that will start to rollout to our Xbox Preview audience for Xbox One, and in the coming weeks we’ll release it to the Xbox app (beta) on Windows 10. New features will rollout to the Preview audience in waves, not all at once. We’re really excited about this update as it lays the foundation to bring together more people and more games across devices through Xbox Live.

Starting this summer, Xbox One and the Xbox app will receive the first of two updates that will help you stay connected with friends on Xbox Live and enjoy even more games across your favorite devices. Cortana will come to Xbox One; the Xbox and Windows Stores will start to become unified; we will begin to introduce your top PC games with Game Hubs to Xbox Live, and more. These updates are crucial to giving our fans around the world a great gaming experience wherever and whatever they play.

Here are some of the features that are expected to start to rollout to Xbox One Preview this week, and the Xbox app (beta) in the coming weeks:

Xbox One

Cortana on Xbox One: Cortana is coming to Preview in the U.S., U.K., France, Italy, Germany and Spain first, and gamers can expect the familiar Cortana experience found on other Windows 10 devices. Cortana voice commands on Xbox One will work with both headsets and Kinect. You’ll be able to use Cortana to find great new games, see what your friends are up to, start a party, accomplish common tasks, turn on your Xbox One if you’re using Kinect, and more. We’ll continue to build Cortana features over time and our vision is to use Cortana to help elevate your experience as your personal digital assistant for gaming. Just say “Hey Cortana” or launch the app to get started!

New Game Collection: We’re updating the Game Collection interface to make it faster and easier to find and launch the games you’re looking for. Now you’ll be able to see more of your Game Collection, quickly access your own ‘Ready to Install’ tab, and get more information about titles in your queue.

Facebook Friend Finder on Xbox One: Facebook Friend Finder is expanding from the Xbox app to Xbox One and is a great way to find and add your Facebook friends on Xbox. As more gamers link their Facebook and Xbox Live accounts, you’ll start seeing more suggestions for Facebook friends to add and game with on Xbox Live.
image: http://news.xbox.com/wp-content/uploads/1608-4.png

Improved sharing on Xbox One: We’ve made it easier to share your screenshots, GameDVR clips, and achievements on Xbox One. Gamers can now share their most epic clips and captures with the community in fewer steps.
Xbox app and Windows 10 gaming

Edit and share GameDVR clips on any video editor: Create that perfect gaming montage with your favorite video editor with clips you recorded on either Xbox One or your PC. Once you’re finished editing, you’ll be able to upload the clip back to Xbox Live through the Xbox app.
Updated GameDVR management: You can now manage your captures straight from your profile. This new destination allows you to share, start your own uploads, and see progress in the queue.
60 fps game clip recording with the Game bar: Using the new “Very High” video quality setting in the Xbox app, you will be able to record your game clips in up to 60 frames per second (in addition to 30 frames per second) easily, all from the Game bar (Windows + G).
Share to Twitter from Xbox app: In the Xbox app, you’ll be able to share game clips and screenshots from Xbox Live to Twitter through the sharing options on each capture.
Windows Game bar improved full-screen support: One of the most common requests we see for the Windows 10 GameDVR feature is the ability to use the Windows Game bar with more games running in full-screen. We’ve added support for six additional games in full-screen mode with Windows game bar: League of Legends, World of Warcraft, DOTA 2, Battlefield 4, Counterstrike: Global Offensive, and Diablo III. With those games, you can now use Windows + G to bring up the Windows Game bar when the game is running full-screen.
Xbox One and Xbox app

Top PC games show up on Xbox Live: We’re bringing the top PC games like League of Legends and XCOM 2 together with the Xbox Live community. Meaning, your favorite PC games will have their own Game Hubs on Xbox Live. Whether you’re on your PC, Xbox, or mobile phone, you’ll be able to see what PC games your friends are playing, share your own PC gaming clips and screenshots with the community, and message your friends on Xbox Live. On both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, you‘ll also be able to party chat with your friends no matter what they’re doing.

Xbox and Windows Store convergence: We’re starting to combine the best of the Xbox Store and Windows Store to give gamers a single cohesive experience across their devices. On Xbox One, we’ve streamlined the shopping experience to help you find the games you love faster and at the best prices. You’ll be able to filter, browse and search results by genre, read reviews written by fellow gamers – including those voted “most helpful” by the Xbox Live community, easily recognize what titles are on sale with strikethrough pricing in lists, and more. We’ve also added several new channels to help you discover the content you love even faster. On the Windows Store, we’re adding support so gamers can browse and purchase bundles, episodic games, season passes, virtual currency and other game add-ons and DLC.

image: http://news.xbox.com/wp-content/uploads/1608-6.png

More personal Activity Feed: Being able to choose what’s posted to your Activity Feed across Xbox One and the Xbox app is a big fan-requested feature. With the new settings, you can now decide what will get automatically shared to your feed. You can now also craft the perfect Activity Feed posts. At the top of your Activity Feed, easily access and choose from recently unlocked achievements and captures, preview what your post would look like, and then share your greatest gaming moments.
For the update coming this summer, we’re taking the same approach we used for the New Xbox One Experience with an opt-in program to let fans choose how they want to participate. We’ll begin testing a set of features expected this week with an opt-in audience in Xbox Preview. Like all Preview releases, the features are a work-in-progress as we refine them before they launch to the broader community, and some features can stay in Preview for extended periods of time. Additionally, we’re merging the Windows Insider program with the Xbox One Preview program to streamline feedback and updates.

As we continue to evolve the Xbox experience, we appreciate each and every suggestion provided on Xbox Feedback. In just this past year, we’ve released more than 200 new features inspired by fan feedback on Xbox One through our regular updates and the New Xbox One Experience. In the upcoming months, the team will be focusing all of our efforts on the next two updates and won’t be releasing an update every month.

We’re very excited for the Xbox update coming this summer. Keep the feedback coming and thanks for helping make Xbox great! I’ll see you on Xbox Live.

Battleborn’s First Free DLC Hero Launch Dated, Double XP Weekend Announced!

5/19/16 by 2K STAFF

It’s only been a couple weeks since Battleborn was unleashed on the world and already new heroes are joining the fight to save the last star! The first of five new free playable characters – Alani, the warrior-monk healer – releases on Tuesday, May 31st for all platforms and can be unlocked for 47,500 credits earned in-game. Can’t wait that long? Digital Deluxe and Season Pass holders will not only be able to instantly unlock Alani using a Hero Key (more on these keys below), they will also be able to play Alani early starting on Tuesday, May 24th! 

  • Alani Early Access: May 24th starting at 9am PDT for all regions
  • Alani Official Release: May 31st starting at 9am PDT for all regions

What time is that in your region? Check here

A member of the Eldrid faction who was raised as a healer, but forced to be a warrior, Alani is all that remains of her order after Rendain’s Jennerit Imperium stole the oceans from her world. As a warrior from a planet with vast seas, Alani’s attacks and abilities revolve around her power to control water to dish out pain, or heal her fellowBattleborn. Check back on May 24th for her full reveal and in the meantime, here’s a first-look at Alani fully rendered in-game.

 

Hero Keys

Want to unlock Ghalt before getting to Command Rank 40? Then you’re in luck! Starting with the release of Alani, Digital Deluxe and Season Pass holders will receive one Hero Key to instantly unlock ANY hero in the game with each new hero release. To use a key, just head to the Battleborn Character screen in the Command Center and choose the character you want to unlock. You can also use these keys to instantly unlock newly released heroes like Alani, saving you the time it would otherwise take to earn enough credits to do that.

Here’s even more good news: Hero Keys are reusable! If you complete the challenge objective or reach the required Command Rank at any time after unlocking a hero using a Hero Key, then that Hero Key will be returned to you and you can then use that Hero Key to unlock another hero.

 

PlayStation 4 Open Beta Bonus

As a thank you to PS4 players who participated in the Open Beta, they will receive a Hero Key to instantly unlock Alani on May 24th or another hero of their choice, as well as the first Battleborn DLC Pack Story Operation upon release. For those PS4 Open Beta players who also purchased a Season Pass or Digital Deluxe Edition, they will receive an additional Hero Key (bringing the grand total to six throughout the release of Season Pass content).

 

As you can see, we’re gearing up for a summer of awesome new content. The release of Alani is just the beginning of many free updates we’re planning. You can see what else we have in store for future content in this post. And this weekend? It’s time to double-up on your XP!

 

Double XP Event

Join us for a Double XP event in Battleborn! From Friday until Wednesday, you can reap the rewards of earning double Command Rank and Character Rank experience in all Story Mode missions and Competitive Multiplayer matches. This event is global and available to all platforms. All you need to do is jump into battle and bask in double XP glory.

  • START: Friday, May 20 at 8am PDT

Battleborn Open Beta Infographic

On the heels of the Battleborn Open Beta which saw over 2 million players take up arms to fight for the last star in the universe, 2K and Gearbox Software have crunched the numbers, discovering which heroes dealt the most damage, which PVP mode saw the greatest traffic, and perhaps the most important question of all, if a little S1 Sentry Unit named Geoff ever realized his dreams of becoming Arachnis, the Spider King, Lord of all Spiders.

NEW SCREENSHOTS FROM BLOOD AND WINE DLC RELEASED FOR WITCHER 3!

CD PROJEKT RED, creator of The Witcher games series, announces the release of new screenshots from the upcoming expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine.

“I can already tell you Blood and Wine is a fascinating story, with every sort of twist and turn you’d expect from our writers,” said Marcin Momot, Senior Social Media and Community Coordinator, CD PROJEKT RED.

“Toussaint, the new realm we’re creating for the expansion, is unlike anything you’ve seen in Wild Hunt – carefree and colorful, but your gut never stops telling you that there’s some real dark stuff happening underneath all that,” Momot adds. “We’ll be revealing more information in May, however, to sweeten the wait, here are some fresh screenshots from the expansion!”



REGISTER NOW FOR THE CHANCE TO PLAY LAWBREAKERS, THE NEW GRAVITY-DEFYING FPS!

Fans Play First; From PAX East to the Upcoming Public Alpha Tests, Boss Key Invites Community to Help Test Highly Anticipated Game #Lawbreakers

LOS ANGELES – APRIL 21, 2016 – Beat gravity into submission in LawBreakers, the debut game from Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key Studios. Players can register now for the chance to participate and dominate, in LawBreakers’ upcoming series of public Alpha tests on http://www.lawbreakers.com , becoming one of the first to get their hands on the highly anticipated game. Dates for the Alpha tests have not yet been announced, but fans can sign up via the website or Wishlist LawBreakers on Steam to be first in the know.

LawBreakers is a first-person shooter in which even the laws of physics can be shattered, creating intense gravity-based combat and resulting in an ever-evolving and bloody arena. Set in a futuristic rebuilt America, players will choose whether to kill for the nobility of the “Law,” or go out for blood as a “Breaker,” as they take part in the conflict raging across iconic locations including the boiling oceans off the Santa Monica coastline, to a gravity ravaged Grand Canyon and nearly unrecognizable Mount Rushmore.

The team at Boss Key Productions recently revealed a more distinct look and tone for their game, setting LawBreakers apart in a crowded market by embracing the mature attitude of Cliff’s initial vision. In addition to revamping the reimagined – and Shura-owned – Grand Canyon in the Grandview Map, Boss Key has expanded their cast of ruthless antiheroes. Hellion and Bomchelle have joined the side of the “Law”, and two more characters, Kintaro and Toska-9, are allied with the “Breakers”. These new killers round out the current slate of characters involved in this brutal conflict and give both sides mirrored roles with complementary weapons and abilities. These additions will create a more balanced gameplay experience, giving players access to all the current roles, represented in a symmetric fashion, whether they play as “Law” or “Breakers”

Fans who want to jump into the energetic gravity-based combat and dominate the competition can register now for the chance to be selected for a series of public Alpha tests.

If you’re attending PAX East this weekend, you can also play LawBreakers in booth #5116 in the Boston Convention Center. Everyone who plays will collect exclusive swag and a chance to commemorate their best kill with a custom-made video clip shared digitally on social media.

Boss Key recently announced LawBreakers will be a premium digital game, and a Steam exclusive at launch. For more information, or to register for the Alpha tests, please visit: http://www.lawbreakers.com .

DOOM – Open Beta and Post-Launch Content!

We’re pleased to announce DOOM’s Open Beta will run from 15-18 April. This Open Beta will not require a code and players will simply be able to logon to the platform of their choice and download to access Team Deathmatch and Warpath on the Heatwave and Infernal maps.

These maps and modes are just a fraction of what players will experience when the game launches May 13 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In a recent video series we explored the maps, modes and power-ups of DOOM’s multiplayer – all things players have to look forward to at launch. But support for DOOM doesn’t end when the game is out. For the rest of the year, we expect to provide certain free content updates across SnapMap and multiplayer.

We know the DOOM community has always been about great user-generated content, and that’s something we want to continue to encourage with SnapMap, an innovative new component of DOOM designed to make creating, sharing and playing new game experiences fast and easy. On top of being able to access and play new modes and maps created by fellow gamers, id plans to offer content updates for SnapMap, including map modules; props and objects; additional features and functionality; AI enhancements; editing tool enhancements and more. Multiplayer will also receive content updates in the form of new game modes. Both of these SnapMap and multiplayer updates will be free to use and play.

In addition to the planned free support and content updates, we will also be releasing three premium multiplayer DLC packs after launch, which will get you a number of new maps, hack modules, playable demons, weapons and more. The first DLC will be available this summer and give you access to:

· Three new maps
· One new weapon
· One new playable demon
· One new armour set
· One new piece of equipment
· New hack modules and taunts
· New customization colours and patterns

Each DLC pack will cost $14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99, or you can get them all at a discount with the Season Pass for $39.99 / £29.99 / €39.99. Check your preferred retailer to pre-order the DOOM Season Pass.

Massive – The Division Special Report about the next update: Incursions!

The Division Special Report on Twitch

What do we know so far about the Incursions update
In April, the first free update will introduce the first incursion, a new challenging end-game activity developed specifically for squad play. Teams will be able to test their skills as they face seemingly unstoppable enemies to gain high-level weapons and equipment. This update will also add one of the community’s most-wanted feature, loot trading; allowing players in the same group to trade loot collected during a co-op game session.

Special Report breakdown

Incursions
Story and Background
Falcon Lost will be the first Incursion
It takes place in a Water Treatment Plant and is a LMB Stronghold, because that is not really something that you bomb, when you want to take back New York
Captain Perez reassembles the LMB to keep control and now it is our job to stop the rest of the LMB
Multiple voice-overs and discussions that will be different each time

Tactics:
You won´t be able to camp in Falcon Lost
There will be new enemies: Drones – they will flush you out of cover and need to be shot down
You really need a good group and tactics, will be very difficult with PUGs
It is not only about gear but also a lot about player skills
You need synergy between playstyles

Matchmaker
Matchmaker is confirmed for Incursions. There is a Gear-Score recommendation for hard-mode and for Challenge Mode, you won´t be matched with players that are below a specific score.

Checkpoints
No checkpoints in Incursions, when you die you have to start over

Weekly lockouts?
No weekly lookout for incursions you can play them as many times as you want.
The first time in the week you will get a very good reward, and after that you will get good rewards

Future Incursions
More Incursions are planed (Columbus Circle is already confirmed for the Conflict update in May)
Future incursions will have different mechanics

Rewards
Best/new gear and weapons than everywhere in the game (also new named weapons)
Gear-Set-items

Difficulty
The Difficulty of the Incursions is very high, because it needs group coordination, tactics and also good gear to beat the Incursion
Incursions have two difficulties
Hard Mode that will require the equivalent of the current level 31 high end gear
Challenge Mode that will require the new gear-sets
The devs could beat the hard mode, so they made it more difficult. The QC players needed days to beat the Challenge Mode Incursion.

Trading
Player can drop items to give it to the other players in the group that were present as you got the item
Restrictions:
Dark Zone you have to go to a Checkpoints to trade the item (safe area)
Dropped loot can be picked up by all players in the group
Items can be dropped and traded multiple times in the 2h window after pickup

New Feature: Assignments
There will be weekly and daily assignments
You can earn Phoenix Credits and Division Tech
Good rewards in general
Example: killing 10 Cleaners

New Dark Zone Activities
Supply Drops
Drop from the sky that happens every hour on different locations and have very good rewards
Only the first group that gets there will get the reward.
Supply Drops are protected by hard enemies
When you get the supply drop, you don´t have to extract them.
In general, they will add new activities in every future update

Spectator-Cam
When you die during a group-mission, you can follow other teammates
You can switch between your teammates, look around and help them until you are revived

Gear-Sets
There are 4 gear sets
Finding and equipping four pieces from a single set unlocks a new, never-before-seen talent for your Agent, which the developers aren’t revealing yet.
You will also get a setbonus when you have a specific number of set-pieces equipped
Gear sets will have other talents than what we already have
Different gearsets per playstyle
Are more powerful than High-Ends gear pieces – but you have to equip a multiple number of items to get the buff – but gear sets don´t have gear talents
Help a lot in the group synergy when players of the group have different sets
Sentry’s Call
This is the Snipers Gear set
Striker’s Battle Gear
Combat Assault set
Path of the Nomad
Dark Zone / Solo oriented set (very vague)
Technician’s Authority
Support and Tech-Bonus
You can get Gear Sets from:
Incursions
Blueprints that can be bought
Drop in Challenge Mode Missions
Dark Zone

Gear Score
After you reach level 30 you are measured by gear score / now you don´t see player level but the gear score
The gear score is calculated by the gear you are wearing and is based on the quality and item-level
Gear score is also included in matchmaking. Matchmaking will also include the items you have in the inventory.

Player Level Cap
Agent level is still capped at 30, but your gear score can boost your abilities beyond your level, and are touted as a new way of leveling up for top-level players.

Releasedate
April 12th 2016 – on all platforms.
