At the time, none really caught the eye: such is the way of CG teasers. There was Lococycle, from 'Splosion Man developer Twisted Pixel, and Matter, a Kinect game from Hollywood director Gore Verbinski. The third, Ascend: New Gods, from Toy Soldiers developer Signal Studios, promised persistent asynchronous multiplayer across Xbox 360 and Windows Phone.

But there's more to it than that: it's Xbox 360's first truly free-to-play game.

Both toy soldiers games were awesome and I am pretty excited to see what the devolopers do with this game.

The footage at E3 was pretty unimpressive but the RPG mechanics might make the game interesting.

At least there opening up to free to play maybe well get MMORPG's on the next xbox and probably even get Arma 3 with some DAYZ mode :3 i would love to see that plus there's that Class 3 mmo zombie game thing.
