As a vivid Xbox fan, I believe I have often been too critical of Microsoft and some of their ideas (like in this article). In saying that, I believe that as a fan of the Xbox brand and Microsoft, I am in a great position to analyse the Xbox One reveal in an objective manor.
Ubisoft has announced that downloadable titles I Am Alive and From Dust are now available at retail, in Australia. The titles will be apart of Ubisoft’s ‘That’s Hot!’ budget PC range and cost $19.95 each. The games are available at EB Games, JD HiFi and on the Uplay shop.
Xbox’s UK marketing director, Harvey Eagle, has said that Xbox One will not function without Kinect connected.
“Kinect does require to be connected to Xbox One in all cases, yes,” Eagle said. When asked whether the Xbox One will accommodate people who may play smaller rooms with limited space, he replied, “Yes, absolutely. We use the living room almost as a moniker – that’s where we assume the best screen is in the house. But if you like to play in any other room in the house, the Xbox One will deliver the same quality of experience whatever the environment.”
Ubisoft has released another trailer for the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The trailer shows some cinematic co-op gameplay from what, we can assume to be, one of the co-op missions.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist offers two player co-op mode with 4 mission types, 14 maps with 2 player split-screen.
Play as Sam Fisher or Isaac Briggs (a CIA operative) and work as a duo: help your teammate access parts of the maps you couldn’t access on your own, create your own tactics depending on your Play Style and watch each other’s back as you complete missions.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC on August 20 (North America), August 22 (Australia and Europe), and August 23 (UK).
