I love exploring games that I have no previous experiences with, it is like a loot filled chest with everything you always wanted or something you never knew you always wanted, but sometimes that chest grows teeth and starts chasing you and you run away from that chest promising yourself never...
I remember me and my nephew, celebrating a winter holiday at my grandpas house, with a NES and Double Dragon rented from the local video shop. It might have been the greatest weekend of my life. And here we are, I am now a grown man with kids of my own and playing Double Dragon 4 on my...
Yakuza is a series of games that I have always had a love hate relationship towards. But with the latest release, Yakuza 0 I am leaning towards love way more than I have ever before
For nearly 30 years Civilization has plagued our gaming world, people have lost time, sleep and not to mention been frustrated, yet in love with a game so simple yet so incredible deep and time demanding it is sometimes hard to see how this game can be sold at a regular price and not a yearly...
I have always been a huge fan of the stealth-based game genre, and Dishonored was one of my favourite games the year it released. It played through it numerous times with different experiences each time and with the release of Dishonored 2 I was overexcited to once again see what this series...
The Elder Scrolls is one of my top game series of all time, as with most fans I started my love for the series with the release of Oblivion but has since then gone back and played Morrowind. So when Skyrim was announced I was beyond excited and here we are, years later and I am reviewing one of...
It is time for a new Call of Duty, love it or hate it but it is still one of the most successful franchise in gaming history and you can never take that away from them. And speaking of love and hate, there has always been those feeling whenever you speak on a new Call of Duty release as you...
I remember playing Call of Duty on Playstation 3, and how amazed I was at the visuals for this game. I remember thinking that this would be it, this would be the greatest FPS game ever created, and even though many years have passed since my brain worked like that, the Call of Duty franchise...
Whenever I am tasked with reviewing a game mainly focused on kids I turn to my own kids, hand them the controllers and just sit back and take notes. Not only what I myself see but how the experience make them feel and how easy it is for them to interact with the game. But whenever a huge...
What if you took Minecraft and the beloved Dragon Quest universe and mixed them all into one brand new experience? It would probably be the greatest game ever created right? Well, to fans of both games it might be considered that but to anyone the slightest interested in either of the two this...
As a lifelong fan of wrestling dating all the way back to the late 80s when I used to watch wrestling with my grandfather (without my mother knowing it seeing as it was seen upon as real back then) I have tried to withhold my love for the entertainment, but lately my love is slowly dying and...
It is time to return to one of the most talked about games in recent history, we are of course talking about Destiny. Now the name of the game will either bring excitement to you as soon as you hear it or it will bring frustration and annoyance, luckily for me I have always enjoyed Destiny and...

During today’s media briefing at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, CA, Xbox announced Hinterland Studio Inc.’s The Long Dark as the first survival game to launch on Xbox One, and one of the first of a select number of titles coming to Game Preview on Xbox One, a new way for fans to purchase work-in-progress digital titles and participate in the development process by giving feedback to developers as they continue to update their games.
The Long Dark has already enjoyed significant success on Steam’s Early Access platform on the PC, selling nearly 350,000 units over nine months and garnering over 95% positive player reviews. The expertise that Hinterland has developed over the past months, and The Long Dark’s reputation as one of the highest quality community-informed titles, contributed to Microsoft’s choice to bring the game to its innovative new Game Preview on Xbox One program, a first on any console.
“We’re excited to offer a select list of games via Xbox Game Preview on Xbox One, enabling Xbox players the opportunity to get involved with the development of innovative game experiences with excellent development teams behind them by offering feedback throughout the development process.” said Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox. “Hinterland’s The Long Dark is the perfect example of the quality and innovation we anticipate in all our Game Preview titles.”
Hinterland’s survival experience, The Long Dark, has so far only revealed its non-narrative, freeform Sandbox survival mode. Season One of its highly anticipated episodic Story mode, featuring the voice talents of Mark Meer, Jennifer Hale, David Hayter, and Elias Toufexis, has been shrouded in secrecy, but will be free to all players who purchase the game through Game Preview on Xbox One when the Story mode launches later in 2015.
“We’re thrilled with how community-informed development has helped us improve the player experience in The Long Dark, providing us with invaluable feedback and significant development resources with which to achieve our full vision for our exploration-survival experience,” said Raphael van Lierop, Hinterland Studio founder and creative director, and director of The Long Dark. “Being able to partner with Xbox to bring survival games to the console audience for the first time is an incredible opportunity for us. We can’t wait to add Xbox players to our community and incorporate their feedback into how we continue building and improving the game. And when we launch Story mode later in 2015, we’ll be sharing it with an even bigger audience, paving the way for more episodes and future seasons well into 2016 and beyond.”
Game Preview on Xbox One will be available on the Xbox Store in a dedicated Game Preview section, starting Monday, June 15th, at 5:30PM PST. The Long Dark will be available for immediate purchase and download.
