Nordic Games has made quite a name for themselves since they took over a large number of THQ's IPs. Their most recent console releases include Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition
, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
and Legend of Kay - Anniversary
, and they show no signs of stopping anytime soon. The publisher has now detailed four of their upcoming Xbox One releases to arrive over 2016 and 2017.
The first is further confirmation of an Xbox One release of MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore
. Redesigned for the more powerful console, the latest version of MX vs. ATV Supercross
will include exclusive content and updates. There will be 12 new Outdoor Nationals tracks and 2 Open World environments - Free Ride and Waypoint - that have been taken from MX vs. ATV: Alive
. There will also be five new Rhythm Racing tracks, a new game mode where players drag race down straight Supercross tracks that have been filled with obstacles and jumps. Updates include rider apparel that has been licensed from the top Motocross companies, a re-mastered audio system, high-resolution rider models, bikes and track textures, smoother online play, new user interface elements, and a new tutorial section. The game is due to be released on May 10th.
Next up is ELEX
, a game previously announced
back in July. The publisher revealed a shortlist of key gameplay features that players can expect from Piranha Bytes' upcoming Action-RPG, as well as a couple of new screenshots. Look out for this title some time next year.• Sci-Fi meets Fantasy: A post-apocalyptic universe, blending Sci-Fi and fantasy elements together
• Man vs Machine: Decide for yourself which path to choose, there is no right or wrong
• 100% Authenticity: AI in the game will allow everything that happens to feel reasonable
• Epic combat system: A complex combat system & full control over your character makes you able to read your opponents
• Jetpack Frenzy: A whole new dimension of movement possibilities – full vertical exploration
• RPG true to its Name: Your decisions will change the course of the whole game
Nordic Games has also picked up the successful Kickstarter project Battle Chasers: Nightwar
. In doing so, they've helped to fund all of the previously unachieved Stretch Goals from the campaign, so players can now look forward to more content, more cutscenes and full voice acting from the JRPG inspired Dungeon Crawler RPG. This title is currently aiming for the end of this year.
Their final title is a new announcement. Battle Worlds: Kronos
was released on Steam back in November 2013 but will be making its way to Xbox One later this year. The classic turn-based strategy game takes inspiration from classics such as Battle Isle
, Advance Wars
and Panzer General
. The game's key features include two single player campaigns that together include around 50 hours of gameplay, single player challenge maps, and both live and asynchronous multiplayer. While the following media is focused on the PC version of the title, it should give you a decent idea of what to expect in the future.
As usual, we'll be sure to bring you more information on these titles as we get it!
