How Unexplored: Unlocked Edition Generates a Startling Amount of Surprising Dungeons

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/Unexplored-Unlocked-Edition_08.jpg

When I came across an area in Unexplored that consisted entirely of nicely decorated floating rooms all connected by teleporters, I knew we had achieved our goal – we had created a game that could surprise even us, the developer, with the imaginative and interesting levels that our dungeon generation tech could produce.

As you may have guessed, Unexplored’s most unique feature is its content generator. As a team we worked hard to push the boundaries of what can be achieved with generated levels. A challenge both technologically and design-wise.

So, how did we tackle this?

First, every floor you encounter in Unexplored’s procedurally-generated Dungeon of Doom has a couple of themes running at the same time. Themes such as water, lava, teleporters, and chasms. Some of those themes are obvious, others are opaque and rare.

The trick is to have themes work together to create unique gameplay experiences. A floor running a lava and water theme, for example, features boiling water. Or a level combining chasms, decorated rooms, and teleporters may end up, well, featuring nothing more than those floating rooms, interconnected by teleporters.

We created nine main themes and dozens more smaller ones. By having so many different themes, the possible combinations are near-endless. Every floor you encounter becomes a game in itself – you must discover what’s going on and how the dungeon is trying to kill you this time. Or, sometimes, how it’s trying to help you.

In order to beat Unexplored, you must pay attention. The content generation might be ‘random’, but it is still readable to a certain extent. Once you’ve descended into the dungeon a couple of times you will start picking up on the themes I’ve mentioned. You will know when and where to look for secrets, when a particular room is a trap, and when a whole floor might be best avoided altogether. In the true tradition of roguelike games, playing Unexplored is as much about developing smart strategies as it is about building your sword-fighting skills.

As a designer, I really love the effect content generation has on gameplay. If you beat Unexplored, that victory is truly yours. There’s no save game to help you after you die, you can’t memorize levels. It’s so much more than simply jumping through all the hoops the designers put in front of you.

After finishing the base game, we started to conduct some more extreme experiments with our content generator. The results of those experiments ended up as three pieces of DLC (already included in the Unexplored: Unlocked Edition for Xbox One under Special Runs in the main menu).

Mithril Run

The overall structure of the first Special Run remains the same every time, but each floor is still generated on the spot. Think of it like this: you’ve heard rumours of what to expect in this dungeon, aptly named The Mines of Moryondor, but you’re never quite sure of exactly what is going to happen. To beat Mithril Run you really, really need to strategize and plan ahead.

Ripley Run

More focused on action gameplay, Ripley Run gives you a magical, repeater crossbow and a whole bunch of targets to shoot at. You’ll still need to plan carefully, though, as you’ll never have enough arrows, and being able to locate additional resources is key to playing this mode.

The Dark Ritual

In contrast, The Dark Ritual is one giant, nested puzzle, where we took Unexplored’s ability to generate floor-spanning puzzles to the extreme. You still have plenty of scary monsters to deal with, as befits The Dark Ritual’s Cthulhu-inspired theme.

Desolate Mode

By tweaking the content generator, we created vastly different gameplay experiences. My personal favourite is yet another different play style: Desolate Mode. It’s not a Special Run as such, it’s a special kind of difficulty setting.

Desolate Mode makes the levels almost deserted: very few enemies and equally few magic and healing items. This mode features long stretches of silent exploration that suddenly burst into frantic moments of life-threatening combat. Yet another vastly different take on the classic dungeon delving experience.

We can’t wait for you to play Unexplored: Unlocked Edition on Xbox One and to be surprised over and over again. Even now, after many years of development, the game still throws curve balls that even I never imagined.

Unexplored: Unlocked Edition is available now for Xbox One and can be purchased from the Microsoft Store.

Anthem is Available Today on Xbox One – Here’s What You Need to Know

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/ANTHEM_LAUNCH_SCREENSHOT_02_FINAL_16x9-1.jpg

Get ready to suit up and start an incredible adventure! Anthem has just launched on Xbox One, and we’ve got the details you need to get a successful head start in this dangerous and beautiful new world.

Javelins

Javelins are at the center of both combat and mobility in Anthem. They’re built to protect you from almost anything the world can throw at you as well as allow you to soar through the sky, swim through underwater tunnels, and unleash your power against enemies.

There are four javelins, the Ranger (the most balanced and versatile suit), Interceptor (an agile melee specialist), Colossus (the hard-hitting tank), and Storm (and elegant long-range fighter), and each has its own specific strengths and weaknesses. You’ll unlock your first at level 2, another at level 8, a third at level 16, and finally, a fourth at level 26.

AnthemAnthem

Gear and Weapons

Once you’ve unlocked your javelins, you’ll need to add gear and weapons and (if you want) give it a unique look with the game’s customization and personalization options. You can find them in the Forge (accessible at Fort Tarsis or the Launch Bay) under the Loadout and Appearance tabs. You can save multiple loadouts with gear and weapon combinations that may come in handy in specific combat situations.

Gear comes in six rarity levels: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Masterwork, and Legendary. The rarer the gear, the more powerful it is and the higher the chance it will come with inscriptions (randomly rolled stat boosts and bonuses) or added ability bonuses (you can spot these in orange text on the description).

You’ll very likely spend a great deal of time searching for the gear you need, but keep in mind that crafting is an option, too. You can dismantle and salvage gear you don’t need, take on Challenges, visit the Crafting Shop, and explore the world to find nodes to harvest for crafting materials.

AnthemAnthem

Once you have the right materials, you can start crafting. Completing Challenges will also help you unlock blueprints, to make exactly what you need. Of course, the rarer the gear, the more difficult the Challenge.

Combat and Combos

Next, it’s time to learn about your javelin’s capabilities, particularly the combinations of moves that lead to powerful and devastating combo attacks. There are two foundations for any successful combo, the primer (generally an elemental attack that inflicts a status effect on your enemies) and the detonator (basically the trigger that sets off the combo).

Keep in mind that the javelin that primes an enemy or group of enemies does not have to detonate it; any member of the squad can. Once it’s been triggered, your enemies will need to be primed again before your squad can use another detonator. And, unsurprisingly, lower level enemies will be much easier to prime than higher level ones.

AnthemAnthem

Stronger Together

Teamwork is one of the major foundations of Anthem, and the farther you progress in the game the more important it will become. This is especially true for Strongholds, challenging dungeons with multiple objectives to complete in order to progress all the way to a climactic final battle. While Strongholds are the toughest challenges you’ll face, they’ll also give you the greatest rewards. Taking them on with your squad of four increases your likelihood of finding amazing weaponry and gear.

Using a headset and mic with your squad is the easiest way to make the most of everyone’s combat abilities and take out even the strongest enemies. Communicating with one another means lining up the perfect combos, covering teammates under fire, and flanking enemies more effectively.

Unleash Your Power

Now’s your time, Freelancer, so suit up and start exploring the world of Anthem today!
