Microsoft’s Xbox showcase was packed with big announcements like Halo: Infinite and the rumored Fable, but we also received a look at what some smaller developers make. The Gunk, from the creator of SteamWorld, is one such fantasy title.
Looks like players will explore an alien earth to accumulate the titular… gunk. This isn’t explained why we’re collecting this gunk, but it seems that doing so brings back life to the planet. Gamers should be careful while doing so, though, since it appears like a few hostile creatures endure in the way.
A release time for The Crud was not introduced, but we do know that it must be arriving to Xbox Collection X, Xbox One single, and PC. This will be available through Xbox game Pass Online as well, any members to Microsoft’s subscription service can get to play it one.
The Xbox Series By is due out there this holiday, but Microsoft has not revealed a release date or price for the system just yet. It looks to be considered a packed holiday with that and the PS5 release, on top of several notable video games like Halo: Infinite, Cyberpunk 2077, and much more. Whatever console you play on, we’re heading to be having a fun time.
The Fable Reboot
Microsoft has unveiled the next reboot of its Fable role-playing series, marking its long-rumored return after almost ten years since its last mainline access. The first teaser with regard to the Playground Games-led project made its debut in the Xbox Games Showcase on July 23, displayed alongside other next-generation experiences geared toward the Xbox Series X. The title surfaced alongside a brief cinematic teaser trailer, establishing the setting for that next franchise installment.
The existence of a new Fable access isn’t hugely amazing, with developer Playground Games teasing an open-world action-geared role-playing game (RPG) over last years. Multiple reports suggested the series was not even close to finished, despite the closure of inventor, Lionhead Studios, and cancellation of Myth Legends, back in 2016. Details on the setting with regard to Fable remain murky, providing just a brief glimpse of the art direction. Microsoft is also yet to offer a release windows, although confirms availability on Xbox Series X and PC, seemingly dropping the Xbox One gaming console.
