Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One or Steam game for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!
Tonight we played Titanfall 2, EA's futuristic first-person shooter in which players can pilot and battle mechs, and Farming Simulator 17, the agricultural smash hit from Focus Home Interactive. Read on for quick impressions, contest winners, and hands-on videos of both games.
Farming Simulator 17
Before we step into the cockpit of our Titan, we're doing a quick half-hour Farming Simulator 17 stream! Farming Simulator allows players to manage their own farm, driving a variety of tractors, vehicles, and even trains, raising animals, harvesting crops, and much more. Farming Simulator 17 supports 4-player online co-op on Xbox One, and it even has mod support.
Why would anybody want to play a game in which you don't shoot or kill anything? Watch us play to find out!
Titanfall 2 is the long-anticipated sequel to one of Xbox One's earliest AAA exclusive games. We're taking a look at both the brand-new campaign and multiplayer mode.
From Respawn Entertainment, the studio that brought you the award-winning Titanfall, comes Titanfall 2. In single player, an aspiring Pilot and a veteran Titan combine forces to save their own lives and combat a powerful enemy against all odds. Multiplayer offers brand new Titans, expanded Pilot abilities, and deeper customization to elevate the fast-paced and exciting gameplay fans expect from the series.
