Next-generation Xbox launch titles include 'Ryse' and a new 'Forza'

Microsoft is working on a number of launch titles for its new Xbox console. One of the first games to launch on the next Xbox will be Ryse, according to multiple sources familiar with Microsoft's Xbox plans. Microsoft originally unveiled Ryse at E3 2011, promising an exclusive Xbox 360 release with Kinect functionality. A release has never materialized for Xbox 360 and the company has remained fairly silent about the title's progress, noting that it was still in development in mid-2012 and again earlier this year. The Verge understands that Crytek, along with Microsoft Studios, has been rewriting the game to take advantage of its next-generation console, due later this year. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

You sony fans just find any thing to complain about. if you actually read the article, you could see everything they talked about really does sound interesting. one thing you Sony fans have lost an auguring point they said Ryse, a zombie game, and family game set on an island with Pixar movie-style graphics. Did you notice something about these titles? they all brand new ips and different genres. one last thing, It was said from the off that ryse is a kinect game, however, it could be played with a controller.

Ryse being the new HALO/Gears of Microsoft?

I honestly can't picture that. No matter how good the new Kinect technology will be, core gamers will not be heavily interested in a motion-control game. For that reason alone it's almost impossible for the game to be the new HALO, even though it might be a good game in itself.

It's actually kind of depressing to see that a Kinect game is considered a "mega-launch" title while Sony has already shown strong titles which are as hardcore as they can get like Infamous Second Son and Killzone Shadow Fall. First impressions are important, Microsoft, so choose what game to focus on carefully when you showcase the console. Focusing on a Kinect game as a "mega title" is off-putting for me.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   557d ago
Well Ryse will be a controller + Kinect hybrid title so I am not sure I understand the hate from so many people....oh wait, this is N4G where the Sony fanboys reign. Makes sense.

Mediamolicule can show a BS title at the Sony's last conference where you mold things on screen yet that's awesome on this site. Knack looks like a title for 12 year olds yet it's awesome and for the core on this site. Ryse is being developed by CRYTEK which is one of the best developers out there where on this site only they are considered crappy.

As for Forza, we all saw this coming. I can't wait for a next gen Forza. The #1 highest rated racing sim since release on consoles is about to get a next gen racing title. This can only be viewed as great unless you only own a PS3 and think that half-assed train wreck of a GT5 game was better.....LMFAO.

PGR+Forza as launch titles for the next gen Xbox = car lovers dreams come true.
Cocozero  +   558d ago
Ryse is almost certain, as for Forza I think it will likely be a PGR game. But if its Forza 5 thats one AAA game guaranteed for launch

I agree. I was hoping MS were not going to have Forza 5 as a relece games as this and Halo are the reason I have a 360 and I was going to wait until half way through next year before getting the next xbox and just use my WiiU until then but dam if it is then its a day one for me.

I cant wait for E3 and seeing Sony Microsoft and Nintendo trying to out do each other and see the amazing games they have in store for us.

Ryse to be the Mega Blockbuster?
Wasnt that supposed to be the new Black Tusk Project ? A Studio owned by Microsoft.

So lets see.

Gears of War and Halo will be saved for 2015 or 2016, meanwhile Microsoft will invest in tittle like Ryse, Alan Wake and Black tusk Project, along with Forza of course.

I´m fearing that Halo and Gears will die with this strategy, i mean Cod will keep coming out, many Halo Gamers and Gears for that matter already changed to Cod, it will only get worse.

Munky  +   558d ago
There is no way they are not showing at least a sneak peak of the next halo or gears during the reveal. I think the lack of titles for the last 2 years on the 360 leads to MS launching or at least working on a bunch of titles for the Nextbox.

Been closer to 3 years, But the fact that sony continues to release games and also seems to have plenty of games for the ps4 means that reason isn't valid for MS (at least not in my eyes). They better come hard with the games when they reveal the 720 or i wont be picking one up.
TekoIie  +   558d ago
I think the most likely scenario of anything Halo related making an appearance is a Halo 2 remake.

Halo 5 or even a spin-off like Reach seems unlikely considering Halo 4 is not even a year old. MS will release Halo 5 when the install base is at a decent size.

"Ryse is part of four major launch titles for the next-generation Xbox."

Reading helps ;)

Black Tusk is likely developing one of those titles. But seriously if theres one game I'm desperate for MS to invest in its Alan Wake. One of my favorite games this gen and I'd love Remedy to get a decent marketing campaign for it :)

"I´m fearing that Halo and Gears will die with this strategy"

Why? Halo is the Xbox's flagship franchise and Gears gets good support from MS for as long as their deal with EPIC remains. Although I gotta say Judgment was clearly a "we need to keep the Xbox relevant" title which is likely why it got shoddy marketing and minimal PR from EPIC/PCF.

MS's focus is clearly not on the 360 anymore apart from a few arcade titles.

I have mixed feelings about gears judgement.

I love the campaign, and all the other modes except for MP death match. It's a clear step backwards, but that could also be because gears3 MP was so perfect.

The weapons are not balanced good, they took away good stuff added dumb stuff it even feels like the network code is flakey.

You can tell they were more interested in the overrun and survival modes. Those modes are actually really polished.... But I am a MP man at heart so I am not happy.
BigStef71  +   558d ago
Sweet I've always been interested by Ryse since it was announced as Codename Kingdoms. It being Kinect game was the only detractor but I heard you could still use controller to play it. Being a launch title for the new Xbox is great because it will have a chance to sell pretty well since it most likely will be one of the better launch titles and the graphics will most likely look like Crysis 3 on pc. I hope RARE has some launch games like they did for 360
Ron_Danger  +   558d ago

Since you posted the same comment earlier, I'll reply again:

You mean the same way Steel Batallion was?? Oh boy!!
Dlacy13g  +   558d ago
@Ron_Danger no doubt about it, Steel Batallion was a huge let down. I think the clear expectation here would be a hybrid game working with the new improved Kinect. It certainly warrants a bit of hesitation in terms of genuine excitement for sure given the SB failure.

I will also add in I think SB's failures were both Kinect driven and developer driven. It was a Hybrid game and the dev had many options on how they could use Kinect...I felt some of their choices like in cockpit view changing by swiping your hands was a horrid idea. standing up to look outside the mech... quite intuitive. Using your hand to bring up binoculars also not bad in implementation. Thrusting the controller forward to go into the tank gun view... horrendous idea. Also the level designs and enemy AI were both just about as poorly done as could be and that had nothing to do with Kinect and everything to do with the developer just not designing a good game.
edonus  +   558d ago
I tell people all the time Steel Battalion wasnt really a bad game. If you could actually play it it was pretty good.

The ideas and functions are top notch. There are 2 real problems with Steel battalion that can easily be fixed and they both not compound you could fix one and everything would be fine.

1) It needed a better tutorial. SB is a game unlike anything you have ever played before. Kinect has a rhythm to using and in SB they didnt teach you the rhythm so easy thing became impossible tasks for those not familiar with kinect and major interactions werent explained right so you would end up getting someone in your crew killed (which is a major pat of game) because you didnt do an action at the right time. But it doesnt explain that. Too those that arent vested you would think OH... kinect isnt reading my movements when the truth is FROMSOFTWARE are a bunch of @ssholes making something that should have been easy really hard.

2)The detection system they used didnt adjust to the gamer the gamer had to adjust to it. The main issue was the going in and out of the viewport. The game used a skeletal tracking system so you would have to be aware of how your skeleton was being tracked, since the method they used didnt adjust if you sat in a plush couch or low chair where your knees and elbow got close to each other it could throw the detection off making your actions damn near go crazy making it hard for people to grasp the simple arm gestures because the viewport kept going in and out. Honestly if the ported this over to the Ps4 you would see a 95% jump in playability for this game because if they synced the viewport to the light bar and left everything else the same it would stablize the foundation more.

We all know the 360 wasnt powerful enough to really support kinect, as long as this new system is and the new kinect has even higher fidelity we are in for some big things.

Basically dont think guns dont kill because the first shot missed.
Kingdom Come  +   557d ago
Steel Battalion didn't have the phenomenal Crytek at its helm.
Dlacy13g  +   558d ago
So seeing a new Forza game is not surprising given its pretty much a standard to have a racing game at launch. Given Turn 10 didn't actually do the Forza Horizon spin off game it makes sense that Turn 10 would be behind the new game.

Ryse...we all knew it was still coming so not shocking but a bit shocking to hear they are getting behind it like a Gears or Halo.

Zombie game... Zombies are all the rage. I do hope this is NOT the Undead Labs game State of Decay only because I really was looking forward to that game this year and from all I understand its an XBLA game.

Family oriented game on Island... what I like here is it seems Kinect is being used for integrating you into the game but not controlling. I am going to assume this is some kind of platform / exploration game.

So basically we have something for everyone on this list save for a competitive FPS game ....but I am sure we will be seeing a COD next gen announced / shown at the MS conf.

We already knew this, Ruse was confirmed to be a next gen title by crytek in 2012, they said the game was way too ambitious for the 360. So I'm not surprised. And from what is shown from the debut trailer, its a Kinect focused game, it may very well be hybrid like but the game's trailer says Kinect.

This is good news as we an see smoke everywhere, News on the Next Gen Xbox is starting to come in, much like how News on the PS4 started heating up in December and caught a blaze in January just before Sony Dropped the teaser on Feb first.

I have a 360 and It's a nice console. I'm dissapointed about the last years of the 360, because there isn't new Ip's and Microsot is focusing in Kinect with bad and casual games, also there a lot of franchises burned for sobreexplotation like Gears, Forza and the same Halo.

Now the 720 rumors are all bad, always connected, deal with it, second hand restrictions, TV box and for last the games: The same casuals games for Kinect and the same recicled games like Forza.

I'm sad, if PS4 doesnt convince me I'll buy a decent game PC. :(

Hope there's a new Crackdown. A real Crackdown and not a reskin of C1+zombies and beacon hunting...

I too wouldn't mind a new, upgraded Crackdown. It was a really cool idea and a lot of fun to play with friends especially. With new hardware they could iron out a few of its weak points as well as expanding a bit on the core design.

I enjoyed the first more though although I always thought it needed more variety and enemy encounters. I would love for MS (or any company) to take a look at some of the MMO shooters (like Defiance now) but keep the verticalicity where you had some areas that are more open ala Defiance but also more urban environments with all the highrises, Platforming and Action that Crackdown allowed for.

With new hardware it is more likely that open world games can become coop without making as many tradeoffs (or look atleast as good as single player of this gen). I would love something like Crackdown, Infamous, etc to be coop and not just rely on MMOs for some decent open world coop Action (which I also hope we see more of next gen). Borderlands sort of broke the mold as some games had it (mostly exclusives) but it is the one that really took off (in part due to multiplatform--wider audience--but also just being "better" and more finely tuned most of the time).

Part of what I'm trying to get at is there is a huge market for coop enabled games that is largely being ignored. Its one of the best things MS has actually done as nearly all of its best selling exclusives (and multiplatform titles) allow for single player, coop, and competitive all in one (Halo and Gears--both undeniably great sellers with loyal fans no matter if you like it or not).

I just hope next gen we see a few more from all parties as I love a great single player experience, coop, as well as competitive. Its one of the main reasons why I am wanting to see so much more of Destiny as if its one thing Bungie knows how to do its give a great value for your dollar that entertains varied player types all in one package.

On Sony's front I'd love if they created a new top down Everquest game to go along side the rymored EQ3 as had a blast playing them singleplayer and coop as well ;) Or like I said make an Infamous coop game... or a new IP somewhat similar. DC Universe was fun but an MMO is not quite the same.

Never owned a 360, but i was intersted in getting one when they announced original kinect, but fell short of my expectations, I just think it came to early to prolong the 360 life cycle, i think kinect with the new MS console will be more what they were aiming for and will keep a close on it during the E3 conference, PS4 day 1 but if kinect 2 looks promising and lives up to my previous expectations i will certainly look into buying one further down the line.

Ryse could be that game I have been talking about. A game that lets you play everything the same with either a controller or motion and even with or against each other.

By setting both on even ground and giving the player a choice you will see kinect used compared against a standard and if done well people will learn the advantages of motion gaming. Right now the only game like that is Tiger Woods and i have seen people go head to head with controller player and even out do them.

With all the current kinect hate this get swept under the rug and ignored of course but kinect benefitting a gamer does exist.

Definitely looking foward to Cryteks Ryse running on CryEngine3 and DX11.1. Its going to be awesome.

10 years from now people will be arguing about what's the greatest gaming story of all time: Halo, Gears of War, or Ryse?

I hope I'm voting for Ryse when the time comes!

I hope that Ryse is not Kinect only then. Looks like a solid title, but I am not a huge fan of Kinect for core games.
