Dead Island 2 is an upcoming action role-playing, survival zombie game for Xbox One from German developer Yager Development and published by Deep Silver. The developers have given a brief demo of this game to folks at Microsoft and they shared the experience at Xbox Wire. Our time with Dead Island 2 barely scratched the surface of the potential festering beneath its rotting flesh. On top of southern California, the massive open-world contains a huge NorCal region, as well as a third monster-populated mystery area. And while our time beating back the hordes beneath the iconic Hollywood sign was shared by a trio of co-op buddies, the final game will support a total of eight zombie-poppin’ pals.

Ori and the Blind Forest is an upcoming platform adventure video game designed by Moon Studios, and published by Microsoft Studios. “Ori and the Blind Forest” is easily one of the most stylistically gorgeous games we’ve seen on Xbox One so far. “Ori and the Blind Forest” was a critical choice at E3, winning more than 15 nominations and six wins from the gaming press.
