XBox: The Official Magazine - - IN­SIDER -

Some­one has taken a hit out on IO In­ter­ac­tive, the team be­hind the won­der­ful Hit­man (p08) episodic series, but although Square Enix left them for dead, this stu­dio knows a thing or two about as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempts and is bounc­ing back in style, hav­ing de­cided to go in­de­pen­dent. What does that mean for the team and the episodic series? You’ll have to read on to find out. Else­where, Over­watch has fi­nally re­leased their lat­est hero and it’s one we’ve been an­tic­i­pat­ing from the start – the ab­so­lutely enor­mous

Doom­fist (p13) with his gi­ant golden gaunt­let and ar­ray of meaty punches. We’ve got a third over­achiever on our hands with Minecraft (p14) which has had not one, not two, but three up­dates. One has just hit, bring­ing lla­mas and par­rots with it, but there are still an­other two to look for­ward to. We’ve also got a scoop on some trou­bling loot­boxes in Star Wars Bat­tle­front II (p17) that might put off some fans. Fin­gers crossed it’ll all be sorted be­fore the game re­leases on Novem­ber 17 and they learn some lessons from the feed­back.
