Bethesda Sent out the following

 

Today the massively popular Fallout Shelter from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition, expands once more to a new audience, putting Overseers in control of their own Vault and an army of Dwellers on Xbox One and Windows 10. Fallout Shelter is available now as an Xbox Play Anywhere title via a free download from the Xbox Store or Windows Store.

 

As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, player progress is retained across both Xbox One and Windows 10, meaning users can switch seamlessly between platforms and pick up where they left off, bringing all their saves, progress, and achievements with them. The game has also been fully adapted to work with the Xbox One controller, so players can experience Vault life bigger and better, right from their TV.

AboutFallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter thrusts players into the role of Overseer to build their own Vault, manage dwellers, and adventure through Fallout’s iconic wasteland. Since the game’s original launch in 2015, the game has continued to expand and add features, including Crafting, Scrapping, Pets, additional rooms, iconic Fallout 4 characters, and special Dweller customization options. The game’s constantly growing Quest system allows Overseers to send Dwellers out into the Wasteland to abandoned buildings, decrepit Vaults, and mysterious caves to uncover legendary loot and face off against enemies like Radscorpions, Ghouls, and powerful bosses.

 

Players can download Fallout Shelter for Xbox One and Windows 10 from the Xbox Store or Windows Store today.

 

The game is also available for free on Android and iOS devices, as well as on PC through Bethesda’s launcher.

 

Fallout Shelter is a truly unique mobile game and I am very interested in seeing how it does on Xbox One. Will you be getting the game on Xbox One? Do let us know!

Hello, Killer Instinct community!

The combat team has been testing some big changes internally. We are always looking for ways to improve the balance and fun of KI’s combat system, and we have a idea we’d like to get your opinions on.

We know it can be frustrating when you earn an opening and your opponent breaks your combo. In Season 1, a breaker caused a hard knockdown, leaving you very vulnerable. In Season 2, a breaker caused a soft knockdown, allowing you to quickrise and leaving you less vulnerable. In Season 3, breakers cause a flipout, putting you right back in the action. As I’m sure you’ll agree, each season has made getting your combo broken a bit less punishing.

As we all know, a successful breaker from your opponent restores 100% of their potential damage. What if it didn’t? What if we took another step in the direction we were already heading (that of reducing the reward for a successful breaker) and made it so that breaking only restored 50% of their potential damage? And what if the delay before potential damage started healing back was a second or two longer? Some of the reward you’d earned from hitting your opponent would be still be left on the table for you to claim. Longer combos would leave more pressure on the opponent, even if broken, because more potential damage would be around for you to take.

We’ve tested this internally and we really like it. With this change, if you are dominating in neutral you should win a bit faster. And of course, a bunch of potential-damage-related balance changes would come along with this. Characters that inflict a lot of PD (Cinder, Mira, RAAM, etc) would see reductions in the amount they inflict because it affects the game more. Omen would still be able to use Demonic Despair to inflict 100% PD, but the move would lose all of its invulnerability, making it as hard to land as it was in Season 2.

We are eager to hear your opinions and read your thoughtful discussions about this potential balance change. The future of KI is in your hands. Let us know how you feel. If you have any questions about the specifics of how this works, tag me in this thread and I’ll be happy to answer them to keep the discussion as informed as possible.

-Keits, Lead Combat Designer

This is an amazing idea. The developers are actively engaging the fans who support the game and getting their opinion on how best to keep the game fresh, balanced and fun. This method of consulting with the players before a proposed patch is one that I like and I would like to see other developers do.  This shows that the developers are serious about the game’s future and wanting to keep it going.

As with the Steam version of the game, this will include all of the latest updates to ensure you get the ideal Quantum Break experience right out of the box.

“After having worked with Remedy on the PC version of Alan Wake in 2012, and with Microsoft Studios on Ori and The Blind Forest: Definitive Edition (2016), and State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition (2016), we are proud to announce a new triangle-collaboration with two of our trusted partners”, said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director for Nordic Games. “Apart from being a new IP (which is always a brave step), Quantum Break turned out to be a sophisticated, visually stunning shooter with a top-notch cast of actors.”

This is great news as Quantum Break was an amazing game and for those who do not want to use the Windows 10 Store, the game coming to Steam is excellent. Perhaps more Windows 10 Store games will come to Steam also.
