Xbox One Launch Line Up Revealed: Rejoice
The Xbox Freedom team reports straight from Gamescon at Germany, this time around with an official statement and revelation of the Xbox One’s launch line-up.
Wake up, world! We have hot news for you, straight from Germany. Microsoft hosted their Gamescom 2013 media event in Cologne, Germany, and some hot news emerged from there. The event was not live steamed nor had any non-press audience, and was solely Xbox One focused.
While many things were said in there, the big piece of hot news that everyone will care about is that we have an official launch line-up for the Xbox One, which will launch with over 20 games to choose from, including anticipated games such as the new Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, and Forza Motorsport 5. And while the list is looking pretty hot, a missing piece of information was the launch date for the console itself, which we still guess will happen in November this year.
The list itself, provided by Microsoft looks something like this:
- Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
- Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts)
- Call of Duty: Ghosts (Infinity Ward, Activision)
- Crimson Dragon (Grounding/Land Ho!, Microsoft Studios)
- Dead Rising 3 (Capcom Vancouver, Microsoft)
- FIFA 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)
- Fighter Within (AMA Ltd., Ubisoft)
- Forza Motorsport 5 (Turn 10 Studios, Microsoft Studios)
- Just Dance 2014 (Ubisoft Paris, Ubisoft)
- Killer Instinct (Double Helix, Microsoft Studios)
- LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (TT Games, Warner Bros. Interactive)
- Lococycle (Twisted Pixel, Microsoft Studios)
- Madden NFL 25 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)
- NBA 2K14 (Visual Concepts, 2K Sports)
- NBA LIVE 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)
- Need for Speed: Rivals (Ghost Games, Electronic Arts)
- Peggle 2 (Popcap, Electronic Arts)
- Powerstar Golf (Zoe Mode, Microsoft Studios)
- Ryse: Son of Rome (Crytek, Microsoft Studios)
- Skylanders: Swap Force (Vicarious Visions, Activision)
- Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)
- Zoo Tycoon (Frontier Developments Ltd., Microsoft Studios)
- Zumba Fitness: World Party (Zoë Mode, Majesco)
This is considered a “targeted list” (IE, what they aim at delivering, whether they manage to or not) and should be ready to get home and start playing from day one. The list looks pretty good so far, but how do you think it stacks against the Xbox 360, or the honorable competition? Talk to us in the comments section.
