That’s it. The nominations have been made, the votes counted, and we can reveal our Game of the Year 2016. Before we do, it’s worth looking at our five nominated games, and exploring why each deserved to be on the shortlist. Each is a winner in its own right, from our Indie Game Of The Year Inside, to the game that smashed the MOBA and FPS together to revitalise both genres, Overwatch. Take a look at our shortlist. That’s the final five – three very different first person shooters, a driving game, and a platformer. So… how did you vote? In … Read More »

It’s time to choose our Game of the Year 2016. We’ve whittled down over 400 games to just 5 – and we want YOU to pick the overall winner. Every game on the list is a winner in its own right. Have a look at the list below – then pick your favourite! DOOM A resurrection of the classic, DOOM set its stall out pretty early on – this is one of the fastest FPS games we’ve ever played. It’s not subtle, but it’s loud, exciting and entertaining from start to finish. With pick up and play multiplayer that doesn’t … Read More »

We always get a little hyped by trailers – even if we’re not so keen on the games themselves. So if you’ve missed any, here’s our list of the absolute best trailers we saw in July… We Happy Few – Gameplay Trailer A pitch-perfect trailer that shows off the graphics and gameplay of Compulsion Games’ indie survival sim, while playing it tongue-in-cheek with the set-up of the whole game. Inside Accolades Trailer Ordinarily, we’d be super-wary of any game that was basing an entire trailer around all those lovely, lovely things that lovely, lovely shills say to get their names on the … Read More »

As we find ourselves nearing the end of July, it’s time to start sharing the love and giving congratulations to people that truly deserve it. Here at Xbox One UK, we like to recognise the developers in the Indie scene – these guys and girls really do deserve extra credit for their work. They painstakingly get an idea from mere thoughts into an actual game for all of us to play and enjoy, now if that doesn’t deserve a tip of the hat then I really don’t know what does. So for the month of July, we have chosen the … Read More »

Metacritic has always acted as a generally fair barometer for how people feel about games – and it turns out that recent release Inside is almost universally beloved. According to Xbox’s head of marketing, Aaron Greenberg, the game, from developer Playdead, immediately went in at the top spot as the highest-rated Xbox One game to be released this year. We always knew that Inside was a special game – check out our review – but the dark and gritty platform adventure has performed even better than we expected, beating off some triple-A competition from Overwatch, Doom and Xbox-exclusive Ori and … Read More »

There is something inescapably creepy going on in INSIDE‘s world. It’s a largely monochrome landscape, save for a splash of red here and there and, once, a golden sunset, but for all the aesthetic similarities this is a different beast from Playdead’s LIMBO. That might not be immediately apparent. Opening in a sombre wood, our young protagonist is immediately on the run – but running from, or to, what is not yet clear. It’s a similar beginning to that of LIMBO, and no doubt intentionally so. Squint through screwed up eyes and you’d be forgiven for mistaking one for the other. But Inside is … Read More »

Inside is the upcoming game being developed by PlayDead, who you may remember were responsible for the awesome experience that was Limbo. That game has now been delayed and in a statement the studio had this to say… “Last year we announced that INSIDE would be out in ‘early 2015’. It’s not!” ,they continued, “After 5 years in development, we, more than anyone, are looking forward to the release. We are so close, but getting it right has taken a little more time than we anticipated.” However, don’t fret. You can see all of the insides of Inside throughout E3 … Read More »
