Soundweaver Introduces a New Way to Play Skyforge on Xbox One

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/XBOX_Soundweaver_1.jpg

When we create an update for Skyforge, we always look at the bigger picture and the ways you can interact with the world. We want players to find new ways to play the game and make each class that we create a fun and fresh experience. With Distant Frequencies, we might have achieved just that.

The Soundweaver is a new spin of the Bard class from classic RPGs. Many of our colleagues are fans of tabletop games, and some of them were actively pushing for a musician class in Skyforge. However, we didn’t want to just make a musician that plays tunes at the press of a button. We wanted to make it interactive, almost like a rhythm game.

When the first concepts started to make their rounds in our studio, we knew we had something really unique coming up. In the end, we just needed a fitting theme for our new class – and this is where it got tricky, to say the least.

In Skyforge, we explore many different universes, ranging from mythological creatures, gods and demons, to machines and virtual worlds. Therefore, when pinpointing a new style for a music-themed player class, we had many different goals and ideas in mind. Should it be like a flute player from a forest? Or maybe a Viking class blowing a huge horn? But with the influence of our recent Battle Royale mode, we were in the mood for a more tech-oriented class and sketched out concepts for an 80s synthwave-guitarist. That’s when things started to click, and how we got our very own Soundweaver!

As mentioned before, we wanted to make this class play more like a rhythmic game, which means that if you press the base attacks in the right timing, the Soundweaver will get different types of bonuses. On top of that, the Soundweaver uses three different auras created with a subwoofer with various effects depending on if they are used against enemies, in a party or as a solo player.

We hope you’ll enjoy playing as the Soundweaver on Skyforge’s newest update, Distant Frequencies! Let us know your comments on social media!

If you haven’t played Skyforge recently, we’re sending out small in-game gifts to all inactive players that will help you catch up with the rest of the community! Please note that those gifts are sent out in waves and it may take a few days for them to arrive in your in-game inbox.

See you in Aelion!

Skyforge is a free to play Action MMO title available now on the Microsoft Store.

D&D Strategy Game Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms Out Now on Xbox One

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/XboxScreenshot4.jpg

Welcome to your next Dungeons & Dragons adventure! Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is now out on Xbox One and it brings a whole new way to adventure with your favorite D&D heroes! Embark on a sometimes epic, but always hilarious set of adventures where you are in command of the Forgotten Realms’ most epic heroes. Decide who to recruit, gear, and level up as you fight through waves of undead, Red Wizards, Yuan-ti, and really angry forest denizens. Travel to the jungles of Chult, the lost land of Barovia and scuffle in the streets of Waterdeep in this epic Dungeons & Dragons strategy management game!

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is a Dungeons & Dragons-based strategy management game. You collect your adventurers (Champions) and send them on epic and humorous quests to earn gold. Then, use the gold to level up your Champions to help them tackle more dangerous foes. Once your progress slows, complete the adventure and all the gold you’ve collected is transferred into Divine Favor. Divine Favor increases the rate at which you collect gold in the future, so you’ll collect more gold, level up faster, and advance further on your next adventure!

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms ScreenshotIdle Champions of the Forgotten Realms Screenshot

You’ll start your adventures near Mirabar with Bruenor Battlehammer from R.A. Salvatore’s “Legend of Drizzt” novel series and 11 of his friends. Continue playing through three different campaigns based on TRPG modules and over 200 adventures and variants as you weave your way through the world of Toril in the famed Forgotten Realms of Dungeons & Dragons.

Along with weekly content drops, we have 17 annual events that we rotate through.

Each event has two or more new Champions to collect and gear up for free, as well as unique adventures that are only available during those events! As of this writing, we have 35 different adventurers to collect, with more coming every few weeks!

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms ScreenshotIdle Champions of the Forgotten Realms Screenshot

Build your own adventuring party by collecting the heroes you love from D&D lore and popular Dungeons & Dragons streaming shows like “Force Grey”, “Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team,” “Dice,” “Camera, Action!,” and more. Unlock their formation abilities and your own skills at the art of Formation Strategy to create the strongest team to take on foes like Strahd von Zarovich, Zariel, and the Demilich Acererak!

We’ve spent the last few months overhauling the UI to make it work for Xbox One. To help you kick off your adventuring party with a leg up, we’ll be launching the game with a Founder’s Pack full of exclusive goodies at an awesome discount (check out the Microsoft Store for all the details on the goodies you’ll receive).

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms ScreenshotIdle Champions of the Forgotten Realms Screenshot

In addition to the Founder’s Pack, we’ll be celebrating the launch on Xbox One with a week of in-game freebies starting today! Come back every day to pick up an Xbox One celebration chest which has 4 unique items selected by the Idle Champions team! Collect 4 of the chests to unlock 5 additional Gold Chests, and a free Golden Epic card for Joe Manganiello’s Arkhan the Cruel!

Download Idle Champions today to start your adventuring party and quest through the Forgotten Realms on Xbox One! You can keep up with all the latest by following Idle Champions on Mixer, Twitter, Facebook, and our Instagram feed.

How to Play Multiplayer in Ashen and Other Useful Tips

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/A_01.jpg

If you have entered the world of Ashen you’ve no doubt encountered numerous foes, both large and extra-large, as you traverse this mysterious world to save the light from darkness. Part of what makes Ashen such a compelling and exciting game is its unique, passive multiplayer experience, where companions – either AI or human — are never too far away to help lend a hand against a powerful enemy or to save you from certain death. But how can you get your friends to join in on the fun? How can you best be prepared for what lies ahead? We’re here to help. Read on, adventurer…

Finding a Connection

After completing the opening quests and have founded your town Vagrant’s Rest, you will have the ability to connect with other players outside of the town boundaries (when you can engage in combat). When outside of the boundaries, Ashen will look to find other players who are within your proximity so that you may encounter one another. Not only do you have to be at the same place in the world, you may also need to be at roughly the same level (e.g. the same number of bosses defeated).

Communicating with your online companion is tied to pressing Up on the controller’s d-pad. This will light a bright sigil above your head that essentially means, “Follow me.” Use this to coordinate with each other so you’re never too far away from each other in the game world.

Playing with Friends

This requires a few extra steps, in addition to what’s outlined above, so start by partying up with your friend over Xbox Live so you can coordinate via voice chat. Then, both of you should open the Multiplayer section in Ashen’s in-game pause menu under System.

You’ll want to set a Multiplayer Filter Code to share with your friend, so come up with a six-digit number and pass that along to your buddy who will then need to input the same code on their game. Make sure you both have Use Multiplayer Filter and Disable AI Companion checked. Then be near each other at the same point in the game world, tap Up on the d-pad and Ashen will (after 30 seconds or so) pair you up to embark on your adventure together.

This won’t work inside Vagrant’s Rest, so we’d recommend being just outside the hub’s gates where enemies are not as powerful as in other regions. You’ll need to repeat this every time you enter and exit Vagrant’s Rest, but the ability to collaborate with a friend is worth the effort.

Tips for Survival

Ashen is a progressively challenging experience that can be punishing for newcomers to the Souls-like genre of games. A solid general tip is to be mindful of your Stamina, which is responsible for nearly all combat moves in the game — attack, roll, block, sprint – and can deplete quickly if you are not careful. With that in mind, here’s some more tips to help you on your journey:

  • Every enemy has a pattern to their attacks and the sooner you’re able to figure them out, the easier your counterattacks will be. Be patient and wait for those openings and then strike.
  • Once you get the hang of battle in Ashen, and you’re feeling bold, you can be the one to instigate battles to get the upper hand. Timed right, a sprint + strong attack is a great opening move that instantly puts the battle in your favor. Just be mindful of your Stamina…
  • As you continue deeper into the story of Ashen, you’ll encounter many allies who will reside at Vagrant’s Rest (which will also begin to grow larger). It’s a good idea to check back in with the progress of your town as these allies will allow you to upgrade your weapons, purchase reagents, and more. You’ll also unlock a storage chest for you to house those extra items and weapons.
  • As you journey farther away from Vagrant’s Rest, make sure you’re interacting with and unlocking the Travel Stones. Later in the game the ability to Fast Travel will unlock and you’ll be grateful for taking the extra time for finding these checkpoints.
  • I know we covered this a bit earlier, but if you can manage it, find a friend to pair up with in battle. It will greatly help your chances of survival against some of the more powerful foes. If you can’t find a friend, keep your invites open for multiplayer when other players have the chance to join your game; again, helping your odds of survival
