NEWS

3)APB Reloaded sneaks onto Xbox One

Free-to-play cops-versus-criminals online game APB Reloaded is now available on Xbox One, publisher Ravenscourt and developer Reloaded Games announced today. Today’s stealth release marks the MMO’s console debut, which was announced in early 2015.

APB Reloaded is free to download, but requires an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play. Players can purchase in-game currency, which can be spent on the game’s extensive customization features, in bundles that range from $4.99 to $199.99.

In APB Reloaded, players choose to align themselves with either the Enforcers, tasked with keeping the peace in San Paro, or the Criminals, who partake in robberies, vandalism and other bad behavior.

The Xbox One release comes with a Founders Pack, free premium items that unlock if players log in during the next 30 days. Those who play APB Reloaded for more than 10 hours during that 30-day window will receive an exclusive title and weapon skins.

APB Reloaded has been available on Windows PC since 2011. The game was originally known as APB: All Points Bulletin, and was developed by Realtime Worlds and published by EA. David Jones, who was behind the original Grand Theft Auto and Crackdown, was responsible for APB’s game design. The MMO survived just three months after it debuted in 2010, but was revived when K2 Network purchased rights to APB and relaunched it as a free-to-play game.

Deep Silver and Reloaded Games announced PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of APB: Reloaded last year.

2)Legendaries revealed in Latest Pokemon Sun and Moon Trailer

Pokémon Sun and Moon’s starring legendaries make their full debut in the game’s latest trailer, alongside a closer look at the game’s central region. Watch the video above to see the psychic/steel-type Solgaleo (on the cover of Sun) and psychic/ghost-type Lunala (the face of Moon) show off their special moves.

Also shown in further detail is the island Alola region, which draws clear inspiration from Hawaii. This time, trainers will help out Professor Kukui, joined by his assistant Lillie and the player’s friend Hau. They’ll also be able to customize their characters, just as they could in Pokémon X and Y.

There’s also something different about the Pokédex this time around: A Rotom lives inside of the device, making the key item even more helpful than usual.

1)Fallout 4 gets Mod support on Xbox One

Bethesda Game Studios has launched mod support for Fallout 4 on Xbox One, according to the company’s Twitter. The update comes in right under the wire — Bethesda previously announced that the Xbox version of the game would receive modding sometime in May.

Mod support just finished a closed beta last week on Xbox One. Invites to try out the console version of the game’s modding feature were sent just over a week ago to select recipients.

As for PlayStation 4 owners, the studio is still eyeing a June release of the Creation Kit, which gives players the tools to create their own mods for the open-world role-playing game. On Windows PC, Fallout 4 has offered the updated, in-game mod options since April, when the Creation Kit launched in beta.

Although players have been making and sharing modifications through third-party means since the game’s launch, the new feature lets players craft and share their creations directly through Bethesda.net. You can sift through the currently offered mods online right now.

Fallout 4’s latest expansion, Far Harbor, is now available on all three systems: PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Some players on PS4 have found performance issues with the downloadable content, Bethesda noted; it’s currently looking into a fix with help from Sony.

UK GAME CHARTS

Activision’s Overwatch holds on to the crown for a second week as it heads an unchanged Top 3. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is at No2 while Bethesda’s Doom remains at No3. Price promotions and bundling (and perhaps an upcoming tournament) continue to propel Fifa 16 up the chart as it climbs back to No4. The highest ranking new release comes in the form of a re-release as Dead Island: Definitive Edition rises at No5. Koch Media combine re-mastered versions of Dead Island and its sequel Dead Island: Riptide for PS4 and Xbox One. The half term break continues to draw strong sales for more familiar faces with Grand Theft Auto V the chief benefactor climbing four places to No6. Koch Media’s second Top 10 title Homefront: The Revolution slips six places to round of the Top 10 at No10. There’s also a new entry in the cult One Piece series as Bandai Namco’s One Piece: Burning Blood, which makes its debut at No37.
