ID@Xbox at GDC

GDC is in full swing here in San Francisco, making this a perfect time to update you on the ID@Xbox program.

Today, we’re showing 25 games coming to Xbox One through ID@Xbox, developed by teams all over the world. These titles include a wide range of genres, with many of them taking advantage of Xbox One features such as local 8-player gameplay and Kinect integration. Check out the full list of titles over at Xbox Wire.

Look for ID@Xbox game titles in the Xbox Games Store in the coming weeks, but if you happen to be in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can try them today!

Join us at Loft One San Francisco (530 Bryant Street, San Francisco, CA 94107) beginning at 7pm, and be the first to go hands-on with these awesome indies. No GDC badge needed. We’ll even be raffling off some new Xbox One-compatible headsets.

More details here. Hope to see you tonight, and we’ll have more info on these games closer to their respective release dates.

    25 games? That is awesome and impressive!

  • Mik3t

    Wow impressed at the range of games always good to have choice

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    I have that Atlas headset. paid like 170 taxes in.. and realized it’s not even true surround sound. Pretty sickened at that. It’s useless for fps, you don’t know when the footsteps are behind you or beside you etc.

    • Senses Failed

      You paid that much and didn’t know it was stereo!? Why would you admit that on the internet?

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Um? Anyway I thought all headsets were surround sound.. the one I have for my 360 I paid 140 for it and it has great surround sound… I didn’t even think that they would make a headset unless it was true surround sound.

        • Senses Failed

          Hmm, can i interest you in a long term investment?

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Sorry I don’t know what you mean.

          • Lucky13X

            He is making a joke, you know the there’s a sucker born every minute one?

  • evilfangs .

    Can’t wait to hear more about these games.

    I was pretty excited about that space and planet game in which you traveled to different planets in your spaceship, hope we get to hear more about that.

    • Gazza!!!

      Do you mean “No mans sky” developed by Hello games who aren’t one of the ID@xbox partners yet unfortunately, plus there offices were flooded during the recent bad weather so its some way off coming to the X1. Hopefully it will as it looks amazing.

      • infinitecognizance

        Hey, thanks man I was trying to think of the name and couldn’t remember it. Talk about an ambitious game!

        • Gazza!!!

          I just hope it can live up to its potential what ever platform its released on..

  • Senses Failed

    Here have these headsets, yes they sound rubbish because we had to rush our adapter for the release of titanfall, but we’ll fix it via software at some point.. Probably

    How close am i? Just gimme a rough idea

    • Senses Failed

      On a side note how embarrasing is it to have another company offer a solution to their product before you do?

      • Anglophile

        Why should it be embarrassing that a 3rd party had to fix their own product to make up for whatever standards they failed to abide by to begin with. I think common sense has failed you in much the same way as your ability to aptly name yourself has not.

        • Senses Failed

          I was referring to the polk mic boom

  • digitallife

    Can we at least get some demos in the shop? LOL they put up a COD Ghosts demo and took it down a day later. What I don’t understand is how some of these games are Microsoft games but have no demo like at all? I’m really enjoying titanfall but man I don’t always want to be online and thief was such a disappointment…i’m itching for something with a story to immerse myself in and it’s just not available at the moment but when…is the question.

    • Arcona

      Yeah I would have gotten Titanfall if it had a solo campaign. But as just an online deathmatch game it doesn’t interest me at all.

  • Forsythia

    Nice to see some good indie games coming to the console. But where is Outlast? :(

    • evilfangs .

      Outlast won’t be coming to Xbox one.

      Microsoft’s ego won’t allow any indie game to be made and released on any Sony console unless it has exclusive rights to appear on Microsoft’s console first.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Companies don’t have ego’s they have business plans. Unless of course your talking about Apple which I believe is a synonym for ego as a matter of fact. LOL

        • evilfangs .

          So it’s Microsoft’s business plan to not allow any indie developer to release they game on a Microsoft console if said game has already been released on a Sony console?

          Seems a great plan to me, I wonder why other companies don’t partake in such a amazing business decision.

          • Bennijin

            They said they’ll look at exceptions on a “case-by-case” basis like they did with Vlambeer.

            Instead of just scrapping the clause completely like they should.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Thanks for handling the serious side of the convo as I was not interested in being serious at all.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            I was talking in general as companies can’t have ego’s per se’. And I also made a joke that I guess you are all to serious to understand.

            I have no idea what their business plan is nor do I want to be a part of making up policies that will always offend someone.

          • Nick Peck

            You need to read that again, that’s not it at all.

      • EldritchWarlord

        Guacamelee is on the list of games coming to Xbox One, it was originally a Sony exclusive.

        • Mr&Mrs Ninja

          I know! I’m so happy!!!

      • Whatheheckman .

        That’s completely false. That only happens if the developer AGREES to that and takes Microsoft’s completely free Devkit (2 kits + Unity license). If they don’t, they can develop on their own hardware and release their games anyway they want on any console.

  • Cookies!

    So Apparently they pushed the release date for Titanfall 360 Back 2 more weeks, i am not a happy customer.

    • evilfangs .

      Get it on X1 or PC.

      • Cookies!

        No because im not dropping $500 on a new console for the 2 games i would actually play, and No because my pc cannot handle titanfall

        • Whatheheckman .

          Ok then wait.

        • infinitecognizance

          But you can tell your TV to change the channel :(

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Every day that passes makes it less and less that I’ll be buying TitanicFail (lol I just came up with that) and the more likely I’ll be spending time playing the games I already have on my 360 and picking up some older games that I haven’t played yet on the cheap. Like I just picked up Mass Effect (the 1st one that I never played) the Limited Collectors Edition for under $7 new.

      • infinitecognizance

        I know it sounds obvious, buy do you use Gamefly? Mass Effect is pretty boring imo..it’s probably worth $7 though.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Nope I don’t and I was simply pointing out that it’s better to spend the $7 now then to save it for Titanfall on the 360 since they keep pushing the release date back.

          • infinitecognizance

            Right on dude, I was just saying I started my trial this month and I’ve gotten games pretty quick. It’s harder to get the newer games, but for me I’ve already beaten 3 games for free in less than a month. Titanfall looks alright, but I don’t know if $60 is worth it for an online game anyway…hardly any games are truly worth $60. Sorry, no sleep and I’m rabbling.

      • Socal71

        “TitanicFail (lol I just came up with that) …”

        Where from every other comment section about Titanfail that’s been posted longer than an hour ago?

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Hmmm maybe I did see titanfail but don’t think I have ever seen TITANICfail. And if I did oh well it was suppose to be funny and not a major dig.

          • Riddick Snipes

            Tamponfall

      • Cookies!

        I will be getting it anyway, got to try it on xbox one and it is amazing, my brother owns one, and I am away at college

    • Moon Light

      Lol, you want to play TitanFall on xbox360??? With sheet graphics?? You crazy))

      • Cookies!

        Graphics Don’t make the game…

        • infinitecognizance

          Oh man incremental gwafix in 720p? What only $700 and I get a kinect I don’t want. Sign me up! Gwaphxx dawg! Its all bout giraffix

    • Riddick Snipes

      Despicable.

  • Alric Phoenix

    When will we be able to convert retail kits into dev kits?

    • Professor Oak

      There is a time and a place for everything, but not now.

  • Moon Light

    PC is real next gen. 4K resolution, 60-120 FPS, “steam” with low prices, oculus rift. Consoles sucks

    • http://ryan.snook.us/ Snook

      Why do you care? Not enough PC players to play with? You seem to need some sort of validation that you made the right choice for yourself.

      • Moon Light

        A lot of people play DayZ for example. Go to play Titanfal with 30 fps and 792p)))

        • http://ryan.snook.us/ Snook

          Of course, answer the facetious question. Didn’t answer the real question, why do you care if I play PC or not?

          • Moon Light

            I dont care what you play on. I just said that PC is better

          • http://ryan.snook.us/ Snook

            Why do you feel the need to share that with people?

          • Daryl Aiken

            lol

          • WARLORD

            Why do you feel the need to ask why?

          • roozbeh, again

            Why-ception?

          • MrRadiolips

            Im a gamer and play on all systems. Isnt that the only thing that should matter?

        • Nick Peck

          DayZ, hardly a shining example of the pc’s finest software.

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            lol

        • Mr&Mrs Ninja

          DayZ? ….DayZ?

    • Cookies!

      PC: High Price to pay Initial. $900+ for a decent gaming computer and graphics cards to even get to that point. Also, we have Halo, so stfu

      • Moon Light

        Halo combat evolved/Halo 2 on PC too)) Microsoft dont care about exclusives. I think Quantum Break will be on PC too. Because Alan Wake and Max Payne were out on PC)

    • Does Not Equal

      Then why bother us here?

      • Daryl Aiken

        He is posting the same thing in most articles. If you don’t like consoles, why are you reading console blogs?

        • Does Not Equal

          When did I say I disliked consoles?

          • Disturbed_Court_Jester

            umm, pretty sure that was directed at Moon Light…

          • Does Not Equal

            Odd, since it was a response to me.

    • Professor Oak

      PC’s are also great for storing Pokemon.

    • Nick Peck

      yay another moron. It’s sad what this world has come to, so many horrible parents “raising” people like this. Sad.

      Do us a favor, price out a 4k monitor and a PC that can run a game at 4k without crawling, then come back. I’ll give you my house if you can do that for $500 or less. 4k is so far off and pointless due to the lack of support for it this early on. 3-5 years from now? Sure, but not until then.

    • ryder4life22187

      They only give you low prices since they know it’s so easy to pirate games on the PC.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        VERY VERY VERY….Easy!

    • The_Relic

      I have a pretty powerful rig I think (Core i7 2700, two GTX 680s in SLi) but there are some things consoles – and the XB1 in particular – do better. I like playing on the sofa alongside family and mates and enjoying the full spectacle of games on a big TV with surround, the ability to come into a room, say “Xbox on” and have the beast wake up, turn on amp and TV and log me in, I enjoy the convenience of Skyping, especially now a couple of my mandolin students have access to Skype, and – for all your elitism – don’t find the visual experience of gaming very much degraded by the weaker hardware.

      PCs have their place, but so do consoles. Now. why don’t you get an XB1, extract that stick from your arse and have some fun?

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        The_Relic is right… Run free!

    • ryder4life22187

      Alright imma tell you about a big secret you don’t need a PC to get 4K all you gotta do is walk outside.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        Mr Ninja: HA!
        Mrs Ninja: So much negativity!

    • nitron1911

      not everybody wants to invest thousands of dollars on a gaming pc

  • Daryl Aiken

    Can’t wait for these games. Heard good things about Guacamelee!

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      Guacamelee is VERY fun! lol

  • ImTheMetalLord
