Baldur's Gate 3 will release on Xbox. I also discuss the Armored Core 6 reviews, and the Xbox release of Age of Empires 4.
Exciting times for strategy game enthusiasts! The beloved classic, Age of Empires 4, which initially graced our PCs back on 28th October 2021, is now making waves on the Xbox platform. VGC confirms in its recent article that the Anniversary Edition has been introduced to Xbox Series X, Series S, and even on the much-coveted Game Pass.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Age of Empires 4 offers a tantalizing journey through history, challenging players to build, manage, and lead their civilization to utmost prosperity. From managing resources to deploying armies, the game is a testament to the intricate dance between strategy and execution. And now, with its arrival on Xbox, a new group of gamers can bask in its strategic brilliance. So, if you've been eagerly eyeing this title, waiting for its grand Xbox debut, this is your golden opportunity!
Switching gears from strategy to intense mecha combat, another gaming titan has captured the attention of many: Armored Core 6. The reviews for this long-awaited sequel have started pouring in and the consensus is overwhelmingly positive. In fact, Eurogamer, in their review titled "Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon review - a triumphant return for the venerable mecha series", extols the game for not only meeting but exceeding the high standards set by its predecessors.
With its imminent release on 25th August 2023 across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms, Armored Core 6 promises breathtaking battles between mammoth mechs, an intricate customization system, and a compelling narrative. For those not in the know, Armored Core is a game series where players take control of massive robots, diving into heart-pounding battles and intricate mission scenarios. If you haven't already, mark your calendars because this is one release you won't want to miss!
Lastly, the enigmatic delay of Baldur's Gate 3 for the Xbox platform has finally been clarified. The game, which has been a monumental success on PC, faced some unique challenges when it came to its Xbox adaptation. As per IGN's report titled "Phil Spencer Insists Games Launch Across Xbox Series X and S Despite Baldur's Gate 3 No-Show", the initial commitment by Phil Spencer, the head honcho at Xbox, was clear: any game launching on Xbox Series X should also be playable on Xbox Series S.
But Larian Studios hit a roadblock. The much-loved split-screen co-op mode of Baldur's Gate 3 proved challenging to implement on the Xbox Series S. A meeting between Phil Spencer and the leadership at Larian Studios, as documented in a tweet by LarsAtLarian, culminated in a consensus: Baldur's Gate 3 would be available in full splendor on Xbox Series X, while the Xbox Series S version would exclude the split-screen co-op feature.
Baldur's Gate 3 is an epic RPG adventure, diving deep into rich narratives, intricate character developments, and intense battles. With its awaited release on Xbox—albeit with a slight tweak for Series S users—the gaming community is buzzing with excitement. Once the exact release date for this fantasy epic is set in stone, rest assured, the Gaming News will be all over it!
