ReCore is one of Microsoft Studios’ latest IP, leading players on Joule’s journey alongside her crew of robot companions. Created by Armature of Metroid Prime fame, and Keiji Inafune, known for his work on Mega Man, the game was met with considerable anticipation after its reveal back at E3 2014.
ReCore released on September 13, 2016, as a third-person action-adventure title, exclusive to the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. As a solely single-player experience, the game incorporates a range of combat and puzzles, interlaced within its narrative.
After being submerged in cryo-sleep, Joule awakens to find herself on a planet currently in the process of being terraformed. However, after learning that planet’s sentient android workforce has gone rogue, she must fight her way through Far Eden to uncover the cause of the mishap. This makes for some truly unique gameplay experiences, taking advantage of both Joule and her robot army.
ReCore is available as a Play Anywhere title, meaning a single digital licence entitles players to a copy on both Xbox One and Windows 10 devices.
