Fort Boyard Arrives on Xbox One Next Week

By Rebecca Smith, 30 days ago
Fort Boyard is a French game show filmed in an off-shore fortress. Contestants face a range of physical and endurance challenges, and if they're successful, they'll win keys. These keys unlock the treasure room, where if players can work out the password needed, they can unlock the gold and claim it for themselves. If you've always wanted to have a go at the game show, you and up to three friends can take on the fort's challenges in a new Xbox One game coming next week.

Four playable characters will be guided around the fortress by Passe-Partout as they take on 12 different challenges from the game: Boyardodrome, Car Wars, Megagaf, Excalibur, Barrack, Safari, Reaper, Judgement, Rodeo Dino, Mummy, Treasure Room, and Council. Once players have collected the keys, they then have to overcome more challenges to earn the clues needed to solve Sir Fouras’ riddles. Taking on the challenge in single player will mean earning four keys and taking on four activities to collect clues. There are two multiplayer modes, co-op and versus.

Other characters players can meet include Time Master, The White Judge, and Mister Boo, but you'll have to wait until June 27th to meet them — the game is release digitally on all platforms on that date. However, if you prefer a physical copy of the game, you'll have to wait until July 2nd for that one.

We've got the full list of Fort Boyard achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
