See our exclusive first-ever gameplay footage of Xbox One's exclusive dragon-riding action title from renowned studio Platinum Games.
This look nice
This is going to be a late 2016/early 2017 release isn't it ?
bizarre mash up ..but IMO it is the only appealing game from Xone library
looks much smoother than on the stream
@Bansai It does, but the way the dude runs is just laughable. Apart from that it looks pretty decent.
Dammyumm that loks cool as hell. I like it.
Agreed and the graphics look great too! i like how it looks better then most expected after seeing the first cg trailer. I trust platinum to nail the game play as usual, but i am loving the art/graphics to boot! Cant wait to see more, platinum is so underated its border line criminal. The x1 is just getting better and better! very happy as a every platform gamer. Keep the heat up ms and keep giving us awesome games like this!
I noticed at the end of the video when other players joined in, their characters and dragons looked vastly different from the main character/dragon. Does anyone know the details on whether you can customize your dragon and your personal character's appearance for co-op ONLY of if you can do it for the SP portion of the game as well?
@Raw I made that prediction. But nobodies quite sure I personally think there is some level of customization in the game. I dunno if it goes as far as actual customization or simply player progression and you unlock different gear. Hard to tell.
Yes you can customize your dragon. From news.xbox.com "You can even customize your winged pal: Choose your favorite dragon shape (winged serpent, four legged tank, and more), and then evolve your companion’s unique abilities and attacks, as well as its appearance."
it looks really good , Ialso noticed its only prealpha footage, Im not worried about frame rate or visuals it looks good im only worried about the music shifting from one extreme to anotheras in the type of music.. Anyone understand me? the game lokks awesome but i think they need some gangster rock or some system of a down playing in the background lol
The music was nice but they need to take out the vocals. Very very very few games have been able to use music with vocals that is pleasing, MGS being the only great example. The vocals in this video sound douchey. But I suppose it fits the character lol.
lol i got that douchey vibe too other than that i want scalebound
Does look nice. Regarding the other post on N4G showing off the stage demo and ppl were criticizing it. It does say "Pre-Alpha Gameplay". And it doesn't release until "next fall". People acting like it was releasing next week or something. Btw making it an Action RPG just makes everything deeper and way more rewarding. Instead of running through like a typical action game where you blow through it once and unlock everything, or most things through one gameplay. Means this game will have longevity to it and heres hping for 100+ hrs. Also Means I can take my sweet time and lvling everything and I can take my rewards and leveling and play with friends online and seeing their dragons for the first time and take out big bosses. MS needs JRPS though this is a JARPG, this and Recore its a start but at least MS is doing some effort.
I seem to recall a vocal group talking about downgrades in UC4 & saying the game isn't that impressive even though it is also in pre-alpha, so it comes from all sides really. I'm of the mind to just wait until the game is in your system before we criticize it, especially in this day & age where downgrades and flat out lies run so rampant. Really getting to the point where its hard to trust anything devs show us, where I actually prefer to see frame drops & glitches in prerelease material as it shows a devs willingness to be honest about the current state of the game. I'm sure this one will be no different, it'll run rock solid when it releases like every other Platinum game...gotta look at developer pedigree for things like these. Regarding Recore, has there been any word on what it actually is? This is the first I'm hearing that its a JRPG. CG trailers are a bummer, no way to tell what a game actually is, so they are never on my radar personally, might as well not have been announced yet.
Wait, this is an Action RPG?! I though this was only Action Adventure. Cool.
Gameplay gonna be amazing, because its Platinum Games, but this headphone dude already looks annoying.
Kinda like Second Son dude, he was annoying as well.
looks interesting can't wait to see more, crackdown IMO stole the show. finally Microsoft is taking care of crackdown ip like a AAA game. so much potential, very very excited
Absolutely Beautiful. The artists went crazy with the beasts designs and animations in this. you can see Lots of creation pride in just a few minutes of this alpha.
Am I the only one who thought of "How to train your Dragon" during the beginning lol?
I need to play this game. It looks great
Link to youtube version https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Kind of disappointed, this was the game Iw as looking forward to the most from MS Gamescom. The Good: Graphically it's already a great looking game which is crazy this early. It's also a unique blend of styles Monster Hunter meets Hack n Slash meets Xenoblade (just the openness of it all). Multiplayer monster battles YA!!!!! The bad: It looks VERY rough especially combat. I know it's early and this is Platinum but goodness. Kamiya complains about Mighty No 9 being a Megaman rip-off, then goes on to make Devil May Monster Hunter, starring Nero-Dante....lol XD I'm keeping my eye on this, and hopefully the gameplay comes along since it has more than a year to go since this is my kind of game.
http://www.forbes.com/sites... Yet goes on to make a DMC / Monster Hunter hybrid, even with blood orbs from killing monsters. LMAO Also 4 player co-op is amazing, didn't expect that.
^^^ What is the guys problem?
Kamiya, Sam lake, JP Kellams, Kudo Tsunoda and others doing a 3d jump. http://www.xboxgamescom2015... http://www.xboxgamescom2015... @Gangsta lol. He looks really happy now. hit play on the photos to see him jump in 3d.lol
Is Kamiya happy with MS now or still pissed off?
Definitely surprised. The graphics are amazing and the gameplay looks nice. Just don't like nonsense screenplay. Why would those knights even attempt to fight the dragon? I understand a noble knight won't flee, but at least give realistic feedback that you're about to die standing up. That aspect needs to be more believable. Would much rather a more serious character. Seems to try too hard to be generic I Am Number Four, Chronicle, and Jumper type protagonist. Hopefully it's just the beginning in which he acts that silly on a battlefield. I want more serious games not more teenager-esque action flick games. That is just me. That however doesn't mean I think the game will be bad. It still looks quite good.
We all remember what happened the last time a dragon game was released. *cough cough* LAIR *cough*
Which is vastly different, highly over-judged for bad controls, and over-judged because others simply weren't used to sixaxis controls period. There is a hype train for positivity and negativity. Come off the wagon. My only concern for SC is how likeable the character is and how good the story is. The gameplay looks tight enough so far.
@loktai lol I'm not an xbox fanboy bro. Just saying dragon games really don't ever work out. Hope fully this will be better.
An action RPG with open world, dragons has everything to be a success. Xbox One keeps getting better and full of games and new functions. Congratulations to Phil and the Xbox team.
Now just make all upcoming JRPGs appear on X1 and I might consider buying it.
god no thanks these Japanese games need to get rid of these stupid numbers and crap all over the screen and actually make the combat something other than a button basher like most of them are, the only interesting ones are the Souls games and Metal gear games as they actually look appealing to western audiences.
Why are you congratulating Xbox and Phil, when you should be complimenting Platinum Games? My god what a douchey comment. Anyway, Scalebound looks fantastic, really my sort of game. Definitely looking to pick this up.
Really forgotten, but not limited to Platinum Games but the the Hideki Kamiya and MS by investing in an optimal IP for the Xbox One.
Looks amazingg except one little things. I hope they give an option to remove the numbers flashing on the screen. I freakin hate that concept, why do all japanese games have that? It's so unnecessary and distracting. If they wanna show damage then can show that on the side of the damn screen.
This demo looks much smoother. And shows how Epic Platinum games are when you're not just tapping light attacks over and over. Character gives me my Devil May Cry feel and I love the music that plays.
I just noticed it too. This is definitely smoother than the other video. but remember this is pre-alpha footage, so the final product will definitely look and perform better. @Septic Agreed. The animation definitely needs more work.
Needs some work on the frame rate (its Pre-Alpha after all) but the game looks ace!
Given that Platinum has never done Open World or a game as beautiful as this before the build was never expected to be 60 FPS, but Platinum is known for focusing on gameplay and with MS help they can squeeze the FPS to be a stable 30 by launch just in time for the Dragon hype train to come rolling through. I mean seriously we may get another Skyrim hype train going. Who doesn't love Dragons?
Yeah the demo on stage was live with Kamiya. I'm kinda guessing, but i think that was the reason for his outburst on twitter. MS probably wanted a recorded demo but Kamiya preferred live.
The game has a nostalgic feel to it when he was in the jungle hacking away at enemies. Like a PS2/ OG Xbox game. Just running around doing your own thing. I had that same feeling with SOD last year with its colors reminded me of the late 90's games. I love that feeling of just having fun, wonder and aw with this games. Day one buy for me I've been craving this sort of game for a while.
Another awesome title from Platinum games,I dont know how i'm going to buy all these games in 2016. My wallet will die. lmao http://i.imgur.com/SF8myZr....
That gif is amazing!
YES! Quantum Break. The animations are super cool.
Here's another gif: http://i.imgur.com/5NdhEJu....
Wow. love those gifs, fellas! man...2015 was already looking great..but all these 2016 games are looking amazing.
I literally cannot get over how good these games looked. Had no worried for QB because remedy are gods, and it just looked incredible as expected. Scalebound looks great, something unique and new to the Xbox platform, and I mean DRAGONs, seems like the combat is very diverse as well, looks awesome cant wait. Crackdown o baby baby, that destruction was insane, I have nothing else to say about it except anyone that doubted the cloud, the line for crow is open.
Then, BAM! Killer Instinct Season 3 and Halo Wars 2!
Amazing, I swear I had chills lol.
I hope we get to choose our character gender and also our dragon gender as well.
I agree about the character gender, but I dont think it matters so much with the dragon. Not like its ever really obvious whether its male or female.
If the game doesnt let me choose to be a transgender, transracial, homosexual, that has a fetish for having sex with animals, I will not buy this game.
At the conference Kamiya mentioned the character and dragons name so I don't think you switch genders.
Bruh..Scalebound looks amazing. Demo def pushed me towards buying this game
Same here, besides the 10 fps, this game deserves my 10 points of HYPE
Same here, besides the 10 fps which will get ironed out and run better at release* There, i fixed it. You happy now? Can't believe how sensitive people can be, it was just a joke :)
looking promising. Main dude reminded me of the dmc dude a bit.....Combat looked a little simple at this early stage but the premise looks interesting and has put itself on my radar. Hope they pull it off
Yeah it definitively felt as if Kamiya was saying , "hey this is how you can make that specific design cool and palatable" to Tameem Antoniades
This is the game i awaited to get an Xbox One , and i was finally convinced by Quantum Break too . There were other titles i wanted too (like Halo 5) , but nothing that made it a must buy till then
Yeah MS have thoroughly slapped my dick of the ground. I can't really be missing these games now you know?
It looks like a lot of fun! Can't wait to see how the MP works.
Big monsters looked good. Rest looked a gen back. Animation looked 2. Poor demo, technically. 4 player Co op could be saving grace.
Wow...that looked sexy. More of this MS...please. More of this... :) I have to go watch that again. We have seen gameplay now. I can officially be excited for this :)
If the coop and SP are combined into one experience, this game could be insane 4 players along with 4 Badass dragons would be epic. If it has open world exploration, a universe worth exploring, and killer RPG/progression mechanics this could be amazing.
