up for the crack(down)!

Chris has been putting in so many hours on Red Dead Online this month (ten-hour sessions are, apparently, common) that it may, or may not, have caused the electricity cables in his street to blow. There’s now a huge hole in front of his driveway. Really. It feels like we’ve been excitedly awaiting this month’s cover game for ages. The Xbox exclusive Crackdown series hasn’t been seen since 2010, and frankly we’ve missed Terry Crews. We’ve also been optimistically including Crackdown 3 on just about every OXM calendar since forever, almost trying to wish it into existence that year. Imagine our excitement when Microsoft offered to fly us out to Washington State to get hands-on with this much anticipated sequel! Find out everything we know about the year’s first big Xbox…

The year is certainly off to an exciting start as we bring you news from The Game Awards, which closed out 2018 with some thrilling announcements of new games coming in 2019. The Game Awards are fast becoming one of the year’s big events in the gaming world’s calendar, an opportunity to reward great games and look forward to new titles. We have a full report from the glitzy LA bash over on page 8. Atlas is a new MMO from the makers of Ark: Evolved that looks set to challenge Sea Of Thieves and the upcoming Skull & Bones for supremacy of the high seas of Xbox. It looks like it will be an ambitious game that will fill all of our time when it launches later this year,…

and the award goes to…

A lot can happen when you chase your dreams, and last month, at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, Geoff Keighley did just that. To sign off the year with a bang he hosted the fifth annual Game Awards and it was bigger and better than ever before. For months leading up to the event Keighley took to Twitter to share updates on the preparation for the event, to tease about some of the things that might happen and to declare that there would be more new game announcements than at any of the previous ceremonies. And he delivered on that promise, bringing 16 brand new game announcements on top of all the other reveals. It was a fantastic night for celebrating the games industry. The very first Game Awards took place…

Chris Burke It’s always exciting for us to see videogames celebrated at high profile events like The Game Awards. There is so much creative talent in the industry that it really does deserve to have its own Oscars. Well done to Geoff Keighley for his vision! Russell Lewin The numbers are dazzling: more than 26 million livestreams, and I love that it’s so global. Games really do unify the world: it’s actually remarkable, from an evolutionary point of view, that so many different people play by the same rules. Adam Bryant I never thought I would see the day where the top dogs at Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo would share a speech on the same stage. It just goes to show that the industry is growing up and becoming a more unified and inclusive place.…

kinda special

There was another place for new game announcements that debuted just two days after the Game Awards. We’re talking about the Kinda Funny Games Showcase, hosted by Greg Miller and Tim Gettys. It slipstreamed behind the Game Awards, while everyone is in new-game-announcement mode. Rather than using the platform to highlight even more triple-A games, this inaugural event paid special attention to the indie games scene. With a whopping 69 titles shown, this is one of the biggest, and most visible, places for indie titles. For a first-time event it was pretty spectacular. A handful of developers even held back on releasing their games just to have their release coincide with the show. The Kinda Funny Games Showcase is exactly what the industry needs, a celebration of the amazing games…

there’s a whole world out there

We thought the waters were already getting a little crowded with both Rare’s Sea Of Thieves and Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones, which is looking to set sail later this year, but it’s going to get even more crammed thanks to a brand new piratical adventure called Atlas that’s peeking over the horizon. It looks like they’re going to be up against some stiff competition, too, as this behemoth fantasy pirate adventure game is being developed by Grapeshot Games, an offshoot of Studio Wildcard, the same developers that brought us Ark: Survival Evolved. It’ll be an altogether different game than its rivals by being a survival MMO which can simultaneously accommodate more than 40,000 people in a single world. For those looking to sail across the high seas, this might be the…
