Mobile Strike – Daily Milestones

January 27, 2017 By: ScreenHacker Category: Game Play

In an effort to promote daily players, Mobile Strike has added Daily Milestones. Anything that helps get people to play would be great, it gets a little boring looking at the same 100 dead bases every day in an effort to find someone to attack. So far we have seen 2 variations of the game, one where you have to go to the shooting gallery to earn a gift crate and another where it’s related to purchases. These gift crates aren’t as nice as some of the previous kind as far as what’s in them but they are giving you some new prizes like the those in the below screen shot.  Some crates with speed ups, boosts and other goodies show up in your my items crates section, another gift tile for your alliance and you also get a Daily Milestone Badge, not sure as of yet what we can do with them yet, but you know they’ll come up with something that will make us need more.  If you can a good amount of your alliance to participate you can win some additional prized depending on how well you rank against other alliances.  As an example our alliance got 2nd place today, so we received 2K Gold, 10 x 8 Hour speed ups, 1 x 60 Minute Speed up and 5 x 3 hour speed ups.  Nothing to go crazy for, but everything adds up.  First place is the same except 4K Gold.  We’ll see if that works out to help us get more active players.  By the way, help your team mates get a tile don’t try to get them all yourself, that’s how to improve your chances of winning!  Happy Hunting!

Rainbow Six Siege – First Velvet Shell Operator Revealed

January 27, 2017 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

“They always leave something behind.” These are the first (and only) words spoken by Jackal, the first Operator to be revealed from the Velvet Shell DLC that will kick off Year 2 of Rainbow Six Siege. This line comes as he activates a special light-and-goggles combo on his head, causing enemy footprints on the ground to be revealed in his field of view. Jackal appears to be an Operator focused on gathering intel on enemy positions and movements, so it seems things could be getting more dangerous for lone wolves roaming away from the team.

Jackal is one of two new Operators coming in the Velvet Shell DLC. The new Coastline map has already been teased, showing an opulent compound on the Mediterranean coast. A full reveal of the Operators and a live demo of the Velvet Shell DLC in action will take place during the Six Invitational from February 3-6. Check out the full schedule for the weekend’s tournament and panels, and read below for more coverage on Rainbow Six Siege.

Unleash Your Imagination and Become a Doodle God Today

January 27, 2017 By: CrashTestDummy Category: Whats Up?

Doodle God Screenshot

We’re pleased to bring you the best version ever of Doodle God to the Xbox One. Our studio wanted to create a new kind of world building game that combined the centuries old concept of alchemy with traditional building mechanics. First and foremost, Doodle God: Ultimate Edition is fun but the game will also push your imagination and creativity.

Players start with the four basic elements: fire, earth, wind, and air and then use their logic and ingenuity to eventually build airplanes, armies, skyscrapers, storms, aliens… you name it. You can build it in Doodle God: Ultimate Edition.

Our team has been working on new content and features over the last three years. Doodle God: Ultimate Edition, which started life as a pencil and paper game, has evolved as our studio has grown. For the Xbox One version we worked hard to add the new Planet mode where now for the first time, as you successfully create new elements like a volcano, you’ll see the volcano come alive on your world.

We also added a new Mission mode to help new players progress in the game. As you play, new missions will pop-up letting you know that you have already created some of the elements needed to create something new. For example: you may have already created steel, so now we might give you a mission to create a locomotive.

Like to compete against (and beat) your friends? We figured as much. So you might like to know that we’ve added the first ever PVP mode. Now you and two friends can race against the clock to see who can create new elements the fastest, not to mention Achievements.

We also spent a great deal of time taking advantage of Xbox One’s excellent graphics capabilities to make the game shine. Finally, everybody needs a little bit of help from their friends, so as you play the game and successfully create new elements you will be rewarded by some hilarious wit and wisdom from some of the worlds greatest comedians and philosophers of all time.

Lastly, remember that the universe was not created in one day. You must build your world up from a simple microorganism to create animals, humans, tools, etc., before you have what it takes to create a new universe. Beware that the power of creation may have unintended consequences, like inventing the wheel might trigger a zombie plague. The power of creation is now in your hands! Have fun building your world and thank you for checking out Doodle God: Ultimate Edition.

Gears of War 4 Introduces Versus Social Cross-play Between Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs!

January 27, 2017 By: CrashTestDummy Category: Whats Up?

Today, we are excited to announce a major step in the future of Gears of War 4 Versus Multiplayer with the introduction of cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs in Social Quickplay!

Late last year, we conducted a cross-play Test Weekend to bring our Windows 10 and Xbox One fans together in public Versus Multiplayer, combining fan feedback and extensive data gathering to help us decide the next steps to take to deliver a matchmaking cross-play Versus experience.

Here’s a look at some of the top stats from our cross-play Test Weekend:


  • Over 750,000 Matches Played
  • Over 115,000 Unique Participants – 91/9 split from Xbox to Windows 10
  • Average of 6.2 matches played by Xbox users, with 11.2 for Windows 10 users
  • Over 90% of all matches during the weekend included a mix of Windows 10 and Xbox One players
  • Windows 10 and Xbox players had closely-matched results when comparing Average KD, Score and Kills per match based on skill ratings
  • The quality of matches improved for both Xbox and Windows 10 users – social lobbies had a higher average user count, and players completed 95% of all social matches entered vs 90% prior to Cross-play Weekend

When we looked at the extensive data we received thanks to the incredible participation from our community, there was a clear message – it works. And after reading the hundreds of pages of discussion and feedback from the cross-play Test Weekend, our fans said the same – it works.

As such, beginning today, Social Quickplay will now be a Cross-play playlist! This step is planned to be a permanent move for the future of Social Quickplay, with the first few months being a ‘trial period’ in order to monitor player feedback alongside data to ensure the Test Weekend was representative.

Core and Competitive will remain platform independent, only matching Xbox players with each other and Windows 10 players with each other. Despite the closely matched performance between users on both platforms seen in our cross-play Test Weekend, we always want to ensure our Ranked experiences are as closely matched and competitive as possible. Due to the major popularity of Social Quickplay on Windows 10, we will be looking at introducing new Core and Competitive solutions for Windows 10 players in the future to provide more focused offerings to experience the more competitive ranked play of Gears of War 4.

We are incredibly excited to bring our Xbox One and Windows 10 PC communities closer together in Public Versus multiplayer through the power of Xbox Live. Thank you for your participation, feedback and passion – without our incredible fans, this decision would not have been possible. Whichever platform you play Gears of War 4 on, we’ll see you online in Social Quickplay!

by Bryce Cochrane, Executive Producer Dead Rising 4

Since Dead Rising 4 released on Dec. 6, players have killed over seven billion zombies, eclipsing the population of planet Earth. You’ve also taken over three million photos and selfies, eclipsing most of the Kardashian family on any given weekend.

To offer current players further engagement with Frank’s world, I’m excited today to announce that we’re introducing two new game difficulty modes and releasing a Street Fighter outfit pack, both free to all players. This is accompanied by a patch fixing several bugs we’ve been tracking since launch.

New Difficulty Modes, Customization, Free Trial Coming to Dead Rising 4

Since Dead Rising 4 released on Dec. 6, players have killed over seven billion zombies, eclipsing the population of planet Earth. You’ve also taken over three million photos and selfies, eclipsing most of the Kardashian family on any given weekend.

To offer current players further engagement with Frank’s world, I’m excited today to announce that we’re introducing two new game difficulty modes and releasing a Street Fighter outfit pack, both free to all players. This is accompanied by a patch fixing several bugs we’ve been tracking since launch.

To attract new players to Dead Rising 4, we are also releasing a one hour timed trial.

The mayhem continues with two all-new difficulty modes

Frank will need to be a lot more careful and aware of his surroundings when trying to survive on a higher difficulty. Enemies do more damage; Frank’s weapons break faster and food restores less health than before. Keep your eyes peeled, watch your back, and don’t forget to scrounge for every weapon – you are going to need them.

The new difficulty modes will be available to players on Jan 30.

Frank West Meets Street Fighter

While in game, just visit your wardrobe and you will find these five outfits for your ultimate zombie fighting experience.

The outfits will be available in game on Jan 30. Handsome fighters never lose battles!

Play for Free with Limited Timed Trial

For those that have yet to face the horde in Dead Rising 4, we’re excited to announce the availability of a 60-minute timed trial experience for Xbox One. The trial will allow new players to earn achievements and carry saved game progress into the full game should they decide to purchase at the end of the trial period. Players can experience both single player Story Mode as well as Multiplayer during the trial period.

The timed trial experience will be available beginning Jan 31.

Dead Rising 4 Releases in Germany

Xbox One and Windows 10 PC players in Germany will be able to purchase and play Dead Rising 4 from the Microsoft Store on Jan. 31, marking the first time a Dead Rising title has been available in the market. We can’t wait for new players to get their hands on the game. For players wishing to purchase the full packaged product of the Xbox One game, look for retailers to begin offering it in late February.

To all our dedicated Dead Rising fans and players, we thank you for your feedback. We listened to what you have asked for and added the new difficulty modes and achievements to go with them.

And to those that have not jumped into Dead Rising 4, go ahead jump into the Xbox One timed trial and Let the Slay Ride Begin.

And to those new players in Germany, “Wilkommen in der Welt von Dead Rising!”

Steep – Alaska DLC Free Starting Feb. 10, World Tour Tournament Starts Today

January 27, 2017 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

steep_world_tour_backcountry_series-1_infographic

Steep’s winter-sports world is about to get bigger starting February 10, when the free Alaska DLC adds a new map and events on all platforms, but players won’t have to wait until then for new features. Steep’s 1.04 update is live today on all platforms, and brings a host of new improvements and additions to the winter-sports game. Responding to community feedback, the developers have made tweaks to jumping accuracy, scaled back the destructiveness of G-force impacts, improved the Mountain View display, and much more. The biggest change, however, is the Steep World Tour Tournament, a monthly competition series that begins today with an event called Backcountry. Starting with a race on the cursed mountain, the qualifier will challenge players to score 5,000 points in order to stay in the competition, and finals will begin in early February.

Developers will also pick out some of the most outstanding player-created challenges and make them widely available as new Community Challenges, which push players to rack up high scores and compete to become a challenge’s leader. Community Challenges will also feature appearances by the developers themselves, giving players a chance to beat Steep’s creators.

Steep is available now for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. For more on the game, check out our previous coverage:
