Infinity Runners

Werewolves in space. Yeah, that's actually a thing.

Wales Interactive's Infinity Runner is a first person endless runner featuring a prisoner that is desperately trying to escape the confines of a ship that is falling apart while avoiding dangerous traps that are inside. The character's movements in-game are inspired by mixed martial arts and parkour. Somewhere along the line, the legend of a werewolf exists in confines of the ship.

Features of this game includes 14 action filled levels, a story and arcade mode, werewolves in space and a wolf leveling system.

Infinity Runner is planned to release for a low price of $6.99 and is coming to Xbox One on April 22. The game will be on the Xbox Live Marketplace in a few hours. This title's concept may be difficult to describe in words so look below for the launch trailer of this first person sci-fi action game.

Shovel Knight to release next week

Shovel Knight

The classic adventure game Shovel Knight from developer Yacht Club Games is due to release next week, according to a recent tweet from Microsoft's Major Nelson. He first tweeted the game would release this week, but has since corrected himself.

With an 8-bit aesthetic and classic adventuring, Shovel Knight has already been greeted with critical acclaim upon releasing on Nintendo platforms and PC. No official date has been announced for next week, as the game has just passed certification at Microsoft, but one can likely assume we'll be seeing Shovel Knight next Wednesday or Friday based on the pattern of digital releases on Xbox. We have reached out to Yacht Club Games for further comment and an exact date, and we will update this post accordingly.

AirMech Arena Xbox One release listed as May 11

AirMech Arena release date?

The internet can be a strange place. Sometimes you end up finding things you weren't looking for, like the release date to the Xbox One version of AirMech Arena.

Thanks to the Uplay App on Xbox One, that date looks to be May 11, 2015. There has been no official announcement on the internet and there are equal possibilities that the day may change without notice. However, with a generic Spring 2015 release window for the title, AirMech Arena will be coming soon regardless of this date sticks.

For those that may not know, AirMech Arena is a free to play Real Time Strategy/MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena)/twin stick shoot-em-up that pits a team of up to three players against up to three players or CPUS in fast paced action with a goal of taking down the other team's fortress. This game has seen success on the Xbox 360 and is looking to expand this success to the Xbox One.

Uplay has been kind enough to also upload the actions that can be done to earn Uplay points and the rewards that can be purchased with Uplay points. Take a look below to see what those are.

[Editors Note: In the past, listings on the website were often wrong and we have ignored them, however, since the Uplay is from Ubsioft and has previously been accurate, we have decided to post]

Goat Simulator out tomorrow on Xbox


Tomorrow, April 17, Goat Simulator will launch via the ID@Xbox program on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One for the price of $9.99. The game has been updated from the original that released last year on PC. The game now allows for local co-op, two players on Xbox 360 and four players on Xbox One. According to the developers, Coffee Stain Studios and Double Eleven, the frequent crashes that PC players experienced have been remedied for the Xbox editions.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Goat Simulator is an open-world game where the main goal is create mayhem and have fun albeit while playing as a goat. The game is meant to have glitches and bugs galore so don't be surprised to encounter plenty since they only add to the hilarity. We will have a review of Goat Simulator up on the site in the coming week for those looking for a more through look.



Xbox 360 getting 2 TB external HDD support

Xbox 360 Arcade Console

The next month of the Xbox 360 preview program will be adding support for external hard drives, up to two TB in size. This feature was actually implemented due to it being one of the top voted requests on the Xbox Feedback website. Storage space is also receiving a different upgrade via the removal of an old process, reserved hard drive space. Now, the Xbox 360 will only use what space is necessary and the rest is free for any other usage. The update will be coming to non-preview members at some point later this year, but no exact date was given.

Kalimba getting DLC and free content


Kalimba, the fun yet potentially brain-injuring puzzle platformer from Press Play, will be receiving both free and paid content next week. A free update will add two brand new multiplayer modes. Llama mode is a competitive speed run mode where up to six players take turns trying to get the fastest time. Puma mode lets players compete asynchronously as you race against ghosts of friends and AI to compete for leaderboard dominance across 30 specially designed levels. The update will be available April 22.

The new update will be accompanied by two new DLC packs. The Dark Void pack will feature 10 new levels and a brand new game mechanic, while the Co-Optimistic pack will include 10 cooperative levels. The content will be available for free to anyone who owns the game until May 6. Afterwards, the packs can be bought separately for $3.99, or together for $5.99.

Kalimba and its new content will also be making its way to PC very soon. It will be available through Steam for $9.99, and the DLC will follow the same pricing model as its console counterpart. The PC version will launch April 22, the same day the new content launches on Xbox One.
