Valiant Hearts, Pure Pool, and Never Alone coming to Xbox One this year

21

We usually try to spread our console coverage out a bit since we know some of our readers don’t play console games. But a batch of exciting Xbox One games have been announced within the last day, and that doesn’t fit in the same article as an Elder Scrolls Online delay. So let’s turn those MMO frowns upside down by concentrating on these games that will arrive on Xbox One within the next few months!

First up, Ubisoft will be bringing a striking adventure game called Valiant Hearts: the Great War to Xbox One and 360 on June 25th. Shortly thereafter, VooFoo Studios and Ripstone will release Pure Pool – the first pool game on Xbox One. Jumping forward to Fall, Alaska-based Upper One Games and E-Line Media have a puzzle platformer called Never Alone in store for Xbox One. Details and trailers after the break!

The Xbox One's first MMO Elder Scrolls Online gets delayed

83

Yesterday we covered the news of Wolfenstein: The New Order’s impending console release later this month. Today we’re back with more Bethesda news, albeit of a sadder nature. The Elder Scrolls Online, which was originally scheduled to launch on Xbox One this June, has had its release date pushed back to later in the year.

Luckily, Bethesda does have some plans to appease disappointed console gamers. Buy and play the PC version of The Elder Scrolls Online (which launched in April) before the end of June and you’ll be able to transfer your character to the console version when it debuts in late 2014. More details on the delay and transfer program after the break!
