It should come as no surprise to anyone that The Anacrusis is adopting seasonal Challenge Tracks to keep players playing. What is a surprise though is that they are allowing early players to unlock the Premium content for every single Challenge Track when it is available.
You may know Conan the Barbarian from the film of the same name, released in 1982 and the prior stories it was based on. Now though Conan is coming to Xbox Game Preview with a game set in brutal lands, where you must survive in an open world by any means necessary.
Ah Fable. How we miss you. How we'd love to head back into your world, kick some chickens, fire off some magic and wield a few swords. We'd kill for the chance to drink at your taverns and would revel in the delights of facing off against another Demon Door. But alas, it looks like we won't be able to do such a thing for a while. So I guess the arrival of Fable Fortune on Xbox One will have to do instead!
Having the ability to shape the development of a game before it becomes a fully fledged title can only be a good thing for gamers and developers alike. With that in mind, the Xbox Game Preview program welcomes Pit People into its ranks for us to join the adventure.
The Xbox Game Preview (and Steam Early Access for that matter) are great options for those looking to dip in and out of games still in development, allowing gamers to help the team behind them push through a better, more refined product. It's been something of a success since arriving on Xbox One and the scheme is due to expand once more with the arrival of Blast Brawl 2: Blood Boogaloo.
Whatever you may think of the Xbox One Game Preview feature, it can't be said to be lacking in game variety. We've seen The Solus Project just come out of the scheme, whilst the likes of ARK, Elite Dangerous and Prison Architect have all had fairly successful stints. Now though there are two new games making the most of the 'Work in Progress' tag - Rivals of Aether and Snooker Nation Championship.
You may have heard of The Culling. After a rather successful Steam Early Access arrival in which it shifted over 500,000 copies, the developers, Xaviant have announced that it will soon be coming to Xbox One as a Game Preview title.
The Xbox One Game Preview feature may not be for everyone, but if you are one who likes to help guide a developer along the right path, jumping in with their latest game whilst it is still work in progress, then you'll be in your element right now.
