Latest Xbox Updates

Capcom's beloved Resident Evil franchise has shifted further and further away from its survival-horror roots with each new entry in recent years. Capcom has been steadily introducing more action/shooter elements into the game in the hopes of widening the audience and attracting new players, but veteran fans of the series have been vocal about their disapproval. In response, Capcom is focusing on horror once again for Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, but they're still expecting strong sales. In a recent interview with MCV, one executive indicated that Capcom is shooting for 4 million sales on day one. Hit the jump for more.

PlayStation 4 holds a massive sales lead over Xbox One, but Microsoft has been fighting back, and Xbox One topped the US charts for four consecutive months after the launch of Xbox One S. Sony fired back with their own new hardware, the new and improved PlayStation 4 Pro, and it provided the sales boost necessary to put PlayStation 4 back on top. Both companies declined to give any concrete numbers, but the NPD Group has confirmed that Sony is once again top dog in the US, and just in time for the holiday season.

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone teamed up with Ubisoft for the 2014 hit South Park: The Stick of Truth, and a sequel was announced at last year's E3. South Park: The Fractured But Whole was originally planned to launch yesterday, but Ubisoft delayed the game to 2017 back in September, and we've heard little since then. Ubisoft finally decided to show the upcoming game a little love today with a new story trailer titled "The Conspiracy," and you can check it out by clicking below. Unfortunately, there's still no concrete release date. 

Fans of Telltale's Batman series don't have too much longer to wait for the thrilling conclusion of the series. Telltale Games announced earlier today that the fifth episode of Batman: The Telltale Series, entitled "City of Light," will launch on all platforms in just under a week on December 13th. City of Light revolves around the Children of Arkham as they execute the final act of a plan to take down the Wayne family name.

Back in October, Rooster Teeth Productions announced that RWBY: Grimm Eclipse (a game based off the company's anime-styled web series RWBY) would be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime this Winter. We haven't heard an update since then, but the co-op hack and slash adventure was briefly made available for digital download on the European PlayStation Store yesterday.

This release was an error (and it was also an earlier, incomplete build of the game), and Sony is offering refunds to anyone who purchased it. Following the accidental early release, Michael Hadwin (Director of Game Development at Rooster Teeth) shared an update on the console version of the game via a blog post. Hit the jump for the details.

Final Fantasy XV has been making big waves this past week, both good and bad. Without spoiling anything, fans and reviewers alike have expressed discontent with how the gameplay and story were handled in the game's already infamous thirteenth chapter. In response, Square Enix posted a recent press release that Chapter 13 and other issues will soon be addressed in future updates.

The weekly software and hardware sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and long-awaited RPG Final Fantasy XV is top dog. Pokémon Sun and Moon enjoyed two weeks at the top, but Final Fantasy XV sold just under 700,000 units at launch to knock the twin 3DS games down to number two. Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS came in third, followed by Watch Dogs 2 and rounding out the top five with All Kamen Rider: Rider Revolution.

In hardware, PlayStation 4 saw a massive sales boost this week, jumping from just under 34,000 to over 110,000 units sold. 3DS, Vita, and Wii U all saw sales increases as well, but Sony's console easily topped the charts. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

Since the launch of Overwatch in May, Blizzard has been hosting seasonal events on a pretty regular basis. Both Summer Games and Halloween Terror events drew high engagement and participation, which made many assume a Christmas event to be inevitable. Last week, some audio files had leaked, which suggested a Holiday event was on the horizon. Today, Blizzard officially announced Overwatch's Christmas event on Twitter, saying "It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we hope you'll join us for some holiday cheer!" Overwatch's Christmas event starts December 13th.

One of the many ways Bungie keeps Destiny updated is through special, limited-time holiday events, such as Halloween's Festival of the Lost. At PlayStation Experience last Saturday, Bungie took the stage to announce that this year's Christmas event is right around the corner. Dubbed "The Dawning," this event will bring new quests, gear, and weapons to Rise of Iron players. One of the biggest features to be introduced is a new scoring system for Vanguard strikes. In addition, the Sparrow Racing League is making a comeback for public matches through the duration of the event. Unlike last time, however, Sparrow Racing will remain available as an option in private matches after the event concludes.

The Dawning will be an exclusive event for Rise of Iron players when it launches on December 13th. The event will only last until January 3rd, though, so make sure to join in on the festivities while you can!

It's been a long wait made longer by a recent delay, but the Kickstarter-funded action-platformer Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is almost here! Shortly after sending the Early Access build live, developer WayForward Technologies has announced that Shantae's next adventure will be available for download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Vita, and Steam on December 20th. The game is also set to receive a physical release at some point, and Xseed will share those details "shortly."

It took ten long, arduous, and terrifying years, but Final Fantasy XV finally launched last week. As with pretty much every other Final Fantasy game, though, the reception has been very divided thus far. Some fans feel that it is too much of a departure from the original series, while others believe it is an awesome first step by Square Enix into modern JRPGs. So what do you think? Do you think that Final Fantasy XV lived up to all the hype?

Yes, you read that headline correctly: an upcoming DLC download for the newly released RPG Final Fantasy XV will feature Yosuke Matsuda, the CEO of developer Square Enix, as part of an exclusive boss fight.

Aside from all the new footage from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, my personal highlight of The Game Awards this year was getting to see the awesome new Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment trailer from Yacht Club Games. The developers have been hard at work on getting Specter Knight's campaign ready to go, and if a recent blog post about the upcoming content is anything to go off of, Specter of Torment is going to be one heck of a ride.
