Not only are there official news announcements, but leaks and rumors tend to fly around like debris in a tornado.
I want Perfect Dark to come back as a third person stealth espionage game like Splinter Cell or MGS. Love the universe, but Halo has the FPS portfolio on lock down for Xbox.
I want Perfect Dark to stick to it's FPS roots, but add in optional stealth and some rpg like elements. Customization could allow the player to approach missions in different manners, shot the place up, hack your way around, or sneak in and out without ever being noticed.
I'd be down for that as well. Maybe add some Dishonored elements? Now I'm getting excited at the thought.
@Was thinking Joanna could acquire upgrades, by finding them in mission or acquiring them from the Carrington Institute . Certain upgrades would be irreversible, while others would be reversible. I was thinking cybernetics and alien technology could be a big part of the game and your character could only handle a certain amount of modification to their body . This would force the player to choice what upgrades they want depending on their play style .
Third person sounds better for a Perfect Dark reboot it could be like a futuristic stealth game with Rise of the Tomb Raider type of visuals
Soo you want deus ex...
@souldestroyer14 Sorta of, except with better combat and rpg elements more comparable to what the Bioshock series offers.
I would actually like them to maintain the previous games strategy of every difficulty having more objectives as it gets harder
I've always said that a new Perfect Dark should go the third person route that would focus on more stealth or James Bond type of action. The story and lore for PD is awesome too and can really be expanded on. There's too many FPS games out there and MS should try and switch it up for this series. Maybe keep the FPS gameplay for the MP.
Having a first person mp and third person single player would likely cause strong dichotomy between the two modes. I was thinking a new perfect dark should be first person, but third person when using stealth and cover. I can however see where going full third person would have advantages. Also I don't think the market has too many first person shooters. The issue is lack of originality in shooters. For example the new doom had singleplayer that was old school and well received. However, the mp of Doom received mixed and very negative reception due to it poorly blending old school features with modern cliches (loadouts, perks and no weapons on map),
ms should take the assets from that shanghai heist game black tusk was working on and add them to do perfect dark reboot
This. Everything about this is something I've wanted to see for a long time. Incorporating Splinter Cell Chaos Theory's stealth mechanics in a PD game would be grand.
I want Perfect Dark Zero 2, exactly the way it is. The Campaign Co-op was amazing. Halo does have the FPS on lock, however, a very good 2nd FPS is a good thing. I'd like Kameo 2, Brute Force 2, & a new Forza Motorsport 6 Track. A 2 TB XBOX ONE Slim is the new console. There's no need for a new XBOX.
I remember tweeting to Phil Spencer about Brute Force and he said it's unlikely it'll ever be revisited . Always wanted a sequel and still do. I mean it sold well, even faster than Halo CE did at one point. Sucks Digital Anvil closed down though.
MS will have the best E3 ever! The new Rare game is a totally new IP and is a genre that adds a welcome diversity for XBOX. Stay tune and oh, Scorpio will surprise many. ;)
I wanna say Battletoads but the article says new IP so all I can say is WHERE IS BATTLETOADS? (And Perfect Dark for that matter) Very interested to see what else Rare has up their sleeves. Sea of Thieves is cool but I'm not really into Pirates so hopefully they have something else that will get me excited. Been hearing a lot more inside info on Scorpio myself Rookie and it does sound very, very interesting. No doubt that MS will be treating it as a brand new console.
Maybe, we are going to see a very advance Sea Of Thieves, the New IP, and a Battletoads remake, at the end, its a side scroller game and i want to stay as is,
The Best E3 Conference in Xbox History, with the best seats in E3s Conference History, showing The Best Line-up in Xbox History......with the Best XXXXXXXX in Xbox History. Who are you? Phil Spencer?
Sweet ,awesome can't wait (STH)
The best news I've heard from Microsoft. A new IP from their first party studios! :)
Agreed. Is pretty "Rare" that they do lol
Perfectly Dark wit there Edmix....
it is indeed pretty 'rare'. thats why i was bummed they created black tusk for a new game then decided to take the safe bet and make a new gears of war game.
Like I get the 1st party thing but QB, scalebound and recore are 1st party ip's, just developed by 3rd
Yes. First party IP as in MS owns the rights to that content. Not 100% sure on ReCore but I think someone has looked up it is owned by MS. Only thing bad about that is the chance of another team making the sequels if the team falls through or doesn't get contracted again by MS etc. Similar to the situation that could be happening to The Order 1886. For all we know, Sony might already have Sony Santa Monica working on its sequel.
@your previous comment We all know for sure that Xbox Slim is going to happen. What we don't know for sure is if they'll also throw in the Xbox Scorpio. That's what makes it exciting. Because that will make or break this E3. If they don't announce it now after all these leaks I think a lot of fans including me are going to be disappointed. Sony will definitely steal the show with the PS4 NEO if Scorpio isn't there at all. They have to show us something. Even if its just a tease. Maybe finish the show with Gears 4 or a Halo game running on Rift VR and show the name "Xbox 4 - 2017" on screen and fade out.
They won't, they want the mini to breath and bought in august, them they'll have an event later in the year or at the xbox/windows conference and announce the scorpio for next year.
Din they already state that neo is not going to be on show floor at E3. Apparently Keanu Reeves din get the perfect outfit to be at E3. Might stitch up few things and show up later. Rumor is recently he's gone kungfu style and tore his outfit...
All the talk before e3 is all about xbox. You can feel that they're going to bring it.
More like they are again wasting all their shots in advance.
What shots exactly. Enjoy the E3 and stop being so negative about it all. No one will judge you... You can relax now.
this is ur time MS don t scraw it i have big hope on u
Would have rather have Rare work on Kameo 2.
Would love to see a return to one of Rare's older IPs.
ive heard rumours that insomniac signed up for two xbox exclusives. I think it would be amazing if Microsoft let them do a new conker, they would be perfect basically an adult version of ratchet and clank. won't happen though probably be sunset 2 which I am also ok with
Damnit Rare, make me Viva Piñata 3!!
https://pbs.twimg.com/media... Rare is hiring y'all
Hope it's an action adventure those are "rare" now a days lol
The Slim is obvious. Scorpio is extremely unlikely. We might also get announcements and release dates for the Xbox Stick and Streaming box...
I dunno, I feel the opposite. I think there's more chance of a new machine than a slim. I mean, why make a smaller version of a console that isn't selling anywhere as well as the competition? That's increased manufacturing costs and marketing costs for... the same sales rate.
The slim is happening at some point. The whole purpose of a slim version is to reduce manufacturing costs. A 14nm apu uses less power and requires less cooling. A cheaper slim = more sales.
I'm starting to think the rumours of the slim and scorpio being the same thing could actually be true
You know, I didn't believe neither MS nor Sony making a mid-gen update, I thought it weird. I finally started to think it made sense after that AMD article about how making a smaller die of the old tech used in the current consoles would cost more to them than just going with a compatible but better performing APU. It made sense to me. So if MS is going to announce a Slim then suddenly it doesn't make sense to me at all...
And the Xbox branded Xbox Phone and Xbox Tablet/Surface!
So, expect pretty much the same thing we've been hearing for the past 2 weeks.
The part that scared me was Microsoft is already working on established franchise! Um any can't we get all new ips instead of continuation of olD games?
AWESOME the one thing nobody wanted Rare to do! Microsoft retard no Conker? God... It's THE system seller, "Microsoft has to win back OLD consumers, that's where they lost all their respect this gen. The older gamers. All of which loved Conker. All of which have wanted a sequel for many years. Remaster the Remaster of Conker, sell it for all the new kids on the block, and old time fans, then release Conker 2 like the whole world wants. Microsoft too silly though ;) Edit: BU BU BUT JESSI, MICROSOFT WANTS FRESH AND NEW, NOT OL- Like Halo? Like Gears? Like Dead Rising? Bet we'll see a fucking Shitset overdrive 2 before we see an actual WORTHY sequel.
I just hope that Microsoft can offer more exclusives that aren't racers or shooters. They need more diversity, especially since they lack some Japanese support.
If i had to guess, i'd say it's unlikely that they would announce a xb1 slim and a new console at the same time.
New hardware...after less then 3 years. I wont be buying in to WHATEVER sony or MS come out with. I went forward and built my first gaming rig. My XBL just expired and I honestly dont feel like renewing (Been 11 years strong with XBL)
Let's hope it's not a Banjo Kazooie game. Such efforts would be wasted due to recent events.
So if this is a new IP in addition to Sea of Thieves. This continues to show Microsoft's total lack of faith in Rare's historic IPs. This cements the idea that those old IPs are to be preserved with Rare Replay. New entries in those IPs won't happen with the exception of the outsourced Killer instinct and Conker being used for Hololens.
If Conker comes to hololens then it has to come to all those devices which run windows 10. Wouldn't xbox be part of that ecosystem? I am pretty sure after recent events.... I am not going to hear - HoloLens exclusive specially for a game like Conker....
But what about Banjo Kazooie? :( I shouldn't complain, awesome to see Rare working on big new IPs like Sea of Thieves again. They have been away for far too long.
