Owners of the Xbox One X console will most likely be aware of it’s ability to utilise AMD’s FreeSync 2.0 technology to get smoother refresh rates on their favourite games. Those in Microsoft’s preview programme have been able to test this feature since the start of the month, but now this technology has been put under the microscope by Eurogamer, and, though the technology is still in its early stages, their tests point to a promising future for Microsoft’s console and the future of gaming technology. First of all, the tech stuff. What is FreeSync 2.0, and how can you … Read More »

Let’s face it, video games are expensive and take up a lot of our time, and with trivial things like work, family, friends, and general hygiene getting in the way, finding this time to sink into our pastime can be tricky. Likewise, a majority of AAA titles these days tend to abide to the mantra “if it’s not broke don’t fix it”, which, in turn, means we don’t see much innovation within the yearly release titles. All hope is not lost, though. Thanks to some incredibly inventive and pioneering game designers, we also have a large selection of indie titles … Read More »

It was announced on online news series Inside Xbox earlier this week that some of our favourite 360 games would be getting a fresh new make-over. One of which is Rockstar Games‘ Red Dead Redemption, which released back in 2010. Eight years later and we can once again enjoy playing through this gritty western as everyone’s favourite cowpoke, John Masrston, in stunning 4K resolution  – that’s four times the resolution as HD if you’re wondering. Red Dead Redemption was already an exceptionally beautiful game when it first released, but you haven’t truly experienced how stunning this game is until you see it … Read More »

After adding Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare to it’s growing list of backward compatible games last week, Larry Hryb has tweeted that Microsoft will be continuing to expand our game collections by making two more Xbox 360 games playable on our Xbox Ones. One of the new compatible games is Ubisoft’s swash-buckling action/adventure Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag which takes the fictitious war between Assassin’s and Templars to the Caribbean seas for an epic pirate adventure. Whilst there is already an Xbox One version of this game, players who own the 360 version will have a chance to replay protagonist Edward … Read More »

Previously, Xbox One Uk featured a small piece talking about why playing “so bad they’re good” video games like Deadly Premonition can be a lot of fun, but that isn’t the only kind of badness that can be found within our game collections; there are also certain games that revel in moral badness, “sick” games, in other words. Rather than the badness of these games stemming from incompetence, film scholar I.Q Hunter has argued in his essay “Trash Horror and the Cult of the Bad Film” that this kind of badness is “equally defined by its grossness“. These films, he writes, … Read More »

Bandai Namco Entertainment‘s beloved long-running fighting game series Soulcalibur has had many guest stars over the years including Star Wars‘s Yoda and Darth Vader as well as Legend of Zelda‘s Link and the smart-mouthed assassin Ezio from Assassin’s Creed, and now Banai Namco have revealed that The Witcher‘s Geralt of Rivia will be joining the roster in up-coming Soulcalibur VI. In the short reveal trailer released today, we see the White Wolf locking his silver sword with Soulcalibur favourites Nightmare and Mitsurugi in a stage based on the witcher’s picturesque home of Kaer Morhen.

If you’re anything like us here at Xbox One UK HQ then you’ll love custom controllers, particularly when they offer something a little different. Hopefully, you’ll agree with us that this latest one from Microsoft looks like a good’un. Sea of Thieves isn’t out yet but is available for pre-order it. However, the limited edition controller has already been launched and we think it’s pretty awesome. It’s a translucent purple design with ‘laser etched barnacles’ for grip, with a golden right trigger (hidden pirate treasure), and the left control stick is in the form of a compass and a glow in the dark … Read More »
