      If there was a KOTOR3 it would be the most hyped i've been for a game in a LONG time, my favourite StarWars game and up there in my favourites of all time.

      • Official DC UNIVERSE app coming to Xbox One in April

        The Xbox One is getting in on the DC UNIVERSE streaming service this month



        For those looking to get all their DC UNIVERSE content on the Xbox One, it seems like the company is listening. The recently launched service, which is akin to the forthcoming Disney+, brings new original series like Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders and Doom Patrol right to your TV.

        The service, which officially launched on September 15, 2018, is also available on iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, the web, and mobile web.

        Besides shows, DC UNIVERSE also brings numerous other features for fans of the comic house, including:
        • WATCH exclusive originals and classic favorites;
        • READ a massive digital comics library with more than 20,000 titles;
        • CONNECT with the DC community;
        • EXPLORE the latest breaking news with DC Daily, the ultimate news show for DC Fans and the ever-expanding DC encyclopedia;
        • WIN premium rewards and participate in sweepstakes and contests;
        • SHOP for exclusive merchandise.

        Later this summer, DC UNIVERSE is also launching Swamp Thing (premiering on May 31), Harley Quinn and Stargirl.

        A subscription to DC UNIVERSE is $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually (plus taxes, where applicable), which falls in line with other similar streaming options dedicated to a single property.

        For more information about the DC UNIVERSE subscription as well as previews of its original content head to dcuniverse.com for more info.

        No word on the exact day of the launch, but usually these new apps show up within a few days of the announcement.

        • First news on new Forza Motorsport game coming on May 7

          The next edition of Forza Monthly will see the first public mention of the next Forza Motorsport game.



          Recently, Turn 10 confirmed that the bulk of the development team is being moved over to the development of the next Forza Motorsport title, a game which as yet remains unannounced.

          On today's edition of Forza Monthly, the studio's own Brian Ekberg confirmed that the first news of the project will be coming on May 7 in the next edition of the show.

          In past years, the Motorsport franchise has run in alternate years to the Horizon games, and we'd be expecting a grand reveal at E3 ahead of a launch before the holidays. We're not expecting that in 2019, as Turn 10 has previously confirmed that there will be no new launch this year.

          So why are we hearing about the new game so soon? For the first time, the community is being involved in the concept stage of the game. Instead of Turn 10 making the game, then using community feedback to make it better, the process is being somewhat flipped on its head for the new title.

          How much we'll hear we don't know, only that the first news will come from May's Forza Monthly. It goes down at 11am Pacific on May 7 on the official Forza channels on Mixer, Twitch and YouTube. In the meantime if you missed the April edition of the show you can catch up on the Forza Mixer channel right now.

              They will be fine, they have already rationalised that E3 is not important and they don't want Sony to be there this year. I am sure they will be laughing at us enjoying our pointless Xbox conference /s :)

          • Inspired by Dutch posting the other day I thought I'd post just to say thanks to blaze and Scott. This is the place I head to to find xbox news you guys supply it.

            After this place started quieting down a bit I tried following a few people on twitter, but, living in the UK, I quickly got Trumped out. So it was nice to see dutch post here again. Seeing gforce, hasmeh, codewarrior and quazl say hi if they're still around would be cool... And I'll carry on lurking and enjoying the post :)

              Let's regrow the community with e3 approaching...will seem like old times. I will try not to get the Nintendo/Xbox hype train growing, because my guess is that is going to be mostly a one way street. Would be nice if the Switch actually had a functional online service, but as of yet it seems that is Nintendo online only. Shame. Also, I would love if old Nintendo games came to the Xbox, like how they have done with Neo Geo titles, but I don't think we will be that lucky. Also, that news of Phil playing Xbox via phone and controller is good stuff. I look forward to that when I can use this when traveling. won't have to lug around the console!

          • Next gen worlds?

            Not directly related, but maybe a first glimps of next gen visuals?

            Done in 3 weeks by 3 artists?!

              Exciting times ahead, Orion!

          • Crackdown 3 is one addictive game, so much is good, I do not know who gave the green light to reporters to evaluate the game of this caliber, this is a game of not some trash that sells Sony for the hunches of time in different titles, each cast to the girls and boys who stand behind this Great Game, thanks to Microsoft for allowing players to play something like this.

            • Obsidian's Plan for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3 Featured Monstrous Sith Lords

              Obsidian had big plans for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3, and although the game never saw the light of day, one of its writers has given us a look into what could have been for this planned next entry in the beloved KOTOR series.

              At Reboot Develop, VG247 spoke to lead writer and designer for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and asked him if Obsidian had ever started work on a story for Knights of the Old Republic 3.

              Avellone confirmed that work was underway, as the team always envisioned the KOTOR story to be a trilogy.

              "When we finished the second one we were all trying to restore our lives back to sanity,” Avellone remembers. “We did start working on the third game pitch, because we always imagined the trilogy. Even when working on the second game, we [tried] to foreshadow what Darth Revan was doing in the second game, and he wasn’t always just ruthlessly and mindlessly blowing everything up. He actually had a larger plan because there was some greater manipulation and threat going on."

              “The third game involved you, as a player character, following where Revan went and then taking the battle to the really ancient Sith lords who are far more terrifying than the Darths that show up. These guys would just be monsters. These would have a level of power that was considerable, but at the same time you’d be able to dig more into their psychologies, and their personalities, their history, and even how they dealt with the player, how they talk with the player, the different powers they cultivated and developed, and for some of them like – they’re the ancients, so they’re not just ruling a solar system, [but] swathes of the galaxy."

              Avellone continued to explain how all these places the player would travel would show how these ancient Sith lords "left their stamp on that world, or that solar system, or whatever collection of moons." Environmental storytelling would have been a huge part of KOTOR 3 and would help convey the pure evil these Sith lords have wrought.

              Avellone also brought up how these Sith lords would be "initially mysterious, but they wouldn't be unknowable like Snoke in the newer films." A huge part of KOTOR 3 would be uncovering their origin stories and learning about what brought them to their height of power and...well...evilness.

              While we may never see KOTOR 3 in this form, as Avellone thinks the game was cancelled due to "internal politics," we do have Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to look forward to, which got its big debut at Star Wars Celebration.
