AirMech Arena Xbox One release listed as May 11

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 Xbox.com 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]

Details about the upcoming Resident Evil Revelations 2 Raid mode

RE Rev 2 Raid Mode

At midnight PST today, Capcom has released its first details about Raid mode for the upcoming Resident Evil Revelations 2. As a popular mode in the first Resident Evil Revelations, information about Raid mode has been kept quiet until now.

With a little less than a month until the game releases, here are the details released by Capcom.

* There will be 15 playable characters in Raid mode. As of now, the known characters available are Claire, Barry, Moira and a character named Gina that you'll meet in Episode 1. The characters Hunk and Wesker are also available depending on how the game is bought. Hunk and Wesker can also be purchased individually.

* Raid mode will be available only for local co-op on release. Online co-op will be added in after the final episode is released. Capcom states that the development team is currently focusing on making sure "online co-op will function as expected."

More information is available. Continue to find out.

#IDARB? It Draws a Red Box. ^

What once was a red box on Twitter has now become a platforming, jump-all-over-the-place, arena-ball esport that'll make the crowds go wild. Crowds? Yes. For the first time, people can actively participate or interfere with games in progress by Twitch or Twitter. By using different hashtags, different effects may occur to really liven the game up: reversed controls, water floods, fireworks and even an internet meme that will never give up. Games played live may never be the same.

The best part? #IDARB is participating in Microsoft's Games with Gold program in February, developer Other Ocean Interactive announced today. Microsoft members with an Xbox Live Gold membership will be able to attain #IDARB for free when downloaded while the game is in the program.

Can't wait until February? Well, you're in luck.

Other Ocean has started giving out full game codes two months early to some of its most vocal fans. If you want your chance to play the game early, visit Other Ocean's Twitter page here, Twitch page here and website here to declare your desire to play the game.

Mike Mika, Head of Development for Other Ocean Interactive had this to say about giving away the game early: “It might sound kind of strange to give the game away for free two months before it officially comes out, but that’s in line with how #IDARB was built from day one.”

What is this game, and how does it play? Check out the trailers inside to see festivities in action.

ID@Xbox Games Announced at GDC

GDC 2014

Today at GDC 2014, Microsoft announced 25 games to be released as part of the ID@Xbox program. Major Nelson provides some further details in a blog post.

Xbox Wire released a brief rundown of the games that has been re-posted below:

  • “1001 Spikes” by Nicalis – This hardcore side-scroller features precise controls and a degree of difficulty that means starting with 1001 lives is not at all a guarantee you can make it through the game! Every level is custom designed to be beaten… barely. The game also includes co-op and cutthroat multiplayer modes.
  • “Calibre 10 Racing Series” by Bongfish GmbH – “Calibre 10 Racing Series” is a spiritual successor to “Harms Way.” The game is entirely multiplayer in a new experience that combines action-packed racing with fast-paced first person shooting.
  • “CastleStorm” by Zen Studios – It’s Knights vs. Vikings in “CastleStorm,” a super genre mash-up of 2D physics destruction mashed with tower defense brawler! “CastleStorm” features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes, and more.
