The games we want the most

XBox: The Official Magazine - - PREVIEW -

We’ve cer­tainly got quite the mixed bag for this month’s pre­view sec­tion. Are you sit­ting com­fort­ably? Good, be­cause to kick things off we’ve got the an­nounce­ment that half the world has been wait­ing for. Crack­down 3 has fi­nally been given a proper re­lease date. Yes, we know what you’re think­ing but this re­ally, re­ally, is the ab­so­lute fi­nal, solid as a rock, re­lease date. You can find that cov­eted piece of in­for­ma­tion as well as some juicy de­tails on its ex­plo­sive mul­ti­player mode on p26. Mean­while, over on p28, 3D Realms has been look­ing to the past to cre­ate its lat­est ti­tle, the bom­bas­tic Ion Maiden . It’s pulled out its old ‘Build’ en­gine, which as far as we re­mem­ber hasn’t been used in a gazil­lion years, to make it but we’re lov­ing the retro look it’s got go­ing on. For those in­ter­ested in some­thing a lit­tle scarier than run­ning around shoot­ing up cy­ber­netic sol­diers we have Wales In­ter­ac­tive’s Maid Of Sker (p30), a game in­spired by Welsh folk­lore that’s sure to raise the hairs on your neck. Fi­nally, thanks to a re­cent live stream we were blessed with a whole host of new de­tails for An­them (p36). If you’re in­ter­ested in cus­tomis­ing your own char­ac­ter, then pre­pare for a treat be­cause we’ve got all the de­tails on the newly an­nounced Forge cus­tomi­sa­tion. En­joy!

We’ve men­tioned Crack­down 3 a min­i­mum of 1,560 times in OXM as com­ing soon, and now it re­ally is! Prom­ise!
