more games than ever…

›Chris Burke Editor This month, OXM’s Editor asked the team to make sense of the bonkers, time-jumping, dead-not-dead, melon-twisting timeline that runs through the Mortal Kombat series, via an absurdly complicated diagram. Just for a joke. We’re absolutely stuffed with reviews this month, with so many big games hitting our Xboxes all at once. From page 62 this month, you’ll find our bumper reviews special covering all the big new releases – we’ve played them all, so you can decide whether you want to! Unbelievably, Mortal Kombat has been ripping the spines out of its fighting series rivals for a quarter of a century now. But even after all this time, the prospect of a new NetherRealm fighter makes us go weak at the highly fracturable knees. Yes, Mortal Kombat 11 is our…

insider

We’re gearing up for what should be one heck of a year for Xbox. If we were to let ourselves get carried away, we’d be packing for Los Angeles already, so excited are we for the announcements we’re sure will come out of Microsoft’s E3 conference in June. We report on Xbox big cheese Phil Spencer’s recent teasing of what Microsoft’s E3 plans might be on page 18 this month. Before that, we talk all things Electronic Arts following the surprise release of new battle royale game Apex Legends, which looks set to do very well for the company. We run down all the news surrounding that and anything else Apex Legends and Titanfall devs Respawn has in the works, as well as other EA news (p8). The world of…

lost stars and rising legends

GOING APEX Only a few months in, 2019 is already proving an eventful year for Electronic Arts. We’ve seen a flurry of news recently, both good and bad – but where does it all leave the controversial videogame giant? Let’s start with Respawn Entertainment. Founded by two of the original creators of Call Of Duty, the studio is best known for the Titanfall games and, despite what seemed to be the commercial failure of both entries in the series (though they were critically acclaimed), it was acquired by EA in 2017. Now that investment seems to be paying dividends. On 4 February, the studio surprised us all by announcing and then immediately releasing Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale FPS loosely set in the Titanfall universe (check out our review on p82). It’s…

the fall guy

The sad fate of a great sequel Respawn’s Titanfall 2 was a critical darling, with reviewers full of praise for both its single-player campaign and multiplayer modes. But despite all that good press, it was a major flop sales-wise – a fact that may well have contributed to the studio choosing not to make a Titanfall 3. So why didn’t it sell? The fault seems to be with EA’s launch day for the game. Out on 28 October 2016, it competed directly not only with Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare, out the following week, but also with EA’s own Battlefield 1, released the week before. Crushed between two more established shooters, it’s hard to see how it could ever have succeeded. The question is: why release it on that day, knowing it would…

just like magic

ROLL FOR INITIATIVE There’s been a significant surge of interest in Dungeons & Dragons these past few years, so it’s no surprise that this year Xbox One owners will be treated to enhanced versions of some of the most beloved and best isometric role-playing games ever made. Last month it was announced that Skybound Games had entered into a partnership with game developer and publisher Beamdog and revealed that a collection of classic D&D adventures will be making their way to consoles. Beamdog may be best known for having developed enhanced editions of PC games: Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate 2, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment and Neverwinter Nights. It also created a brand-new expansion for Baldur’s Gate called Baldur’s Gate: Siege Of Dragonspear. And it’s these exact titles that will be making…
