It seemed inevitable that Gears of War 4 would feature cross-play across all game modes – a fact that was confirmed by Microsoft during their E3 2016 press conference. Only, it turns out that’s not entirely true. With the arrival of the first Play Anywhere title to feature competitive multiplayer, gamers were gearing up to play with and against others on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. After all, cross-platform play is one of the most requested additions in console gaming, with everyone from Rocket League to Final Fantasy getting in on the action. So on the one hand, … Read More »

Play Anywhere has come out of nowhere and has had a fantastic reception. Gears Of War will be one of the first to use this feature. If you have been hiding under a rock throughout E3 then I’ll explain; Play Anywhere enables you to play the games you have purchased like Gears and play across any enabled device, like a Windows 10 PC, without having to purchase the title again. It will save all your achievements and, with the cloud, you’ll also retain your last checkpoint. This enables cross-platform play with seamless ease. In a recent interview with Jeff Rivait, Xbox … Read More »

EA’s Investor Relations Vice President (Wow that’s a mouthful!), Chris Evenden, was asked about whether or not he is worried if Xbox One was the right console to align Battlefield 1’s marketing with. Or if he is worried PS4 gamers won’t want to buy it since it’s going to be advertised with Xbox One. “You know, I think this is a game for PlayStation as much as it is for Xbox as much as it is for PC. I think what DICE has done and the game that they’re building is going to satisfy the battlefield core that continues to play Battlefield … Read More »

Bad news for Overwatch fans hoping to play the Blizzard FPS with those on other systems – Jeffrey Kaplan, the game’s director, has put the absolute kybosh on it. For now. Overwatch was already listed as a definite no for cross-platforming back in November 2015. Then Microsoft popped up earlier this year to say they’ve figured out how it could be done, suddenly it seemed like the perfect game to join Rocket League as a cross-platform-ready title. During those heady, golden hours, anything seemed possible. But while excited gamers gasped, the reception from those in the industry was if not … Read More »

Try saying that title three times over quickly – I can barely say it once!

Rocket League has been making public steps to connect Xbox with Playstation and PC gamers alike to allow players on whatever platform play together, though there have certainly been reservations with opening up network connectivity; currently, Xbox and PS can connect to PC but not Xbox to PS. Psyonix Studios (Rocket League developer) has stated that cross … Read More »

At a recent Xbox press event there were various different matters discussed at length with Head of Programming, Mike Ybarra. From 64 person part chat to the news that they’re reviewing their game sharing policy. It’s the latter, and perhaps more interesting that we’re going to focus on here. Way back when during the Xbox One’s infancy game sharing was a part of Microsoft’s plan for the console. That plan quickly became just that, a plan, with nothing ever coming to fruition on the game sharing front. Of course there are ways around the issue in the form of you … Read More »
