XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - INTRO - Stephen Ashby Editor Steve waved good­bye to the team and the mag­a­zine with a tear in his eye and an Xbox controller tied up in a hand­ker­chief slung over his shoul­der. The team waited un­til he rounded the cor­ner be­fore the cel­e­bra­tions be­gan.

We man­aged to get another huge scoop this month af­ter Ei­dos Mon­treal in­vited us over to Canada to see the lat­est Tomb Raider ti­tle, play the first hour, and chat to the team about what we can ex­pect from the fi­nal chap­ter of Lara’s ori­gins story. Find out all about the game (in­clud­ing whether or not dual pis­tols and mul­ti­player will ap­pear) in our fea­ture on p42. We also looked into the tech be­hind the games you love to try and un­der­stand what the hell a game en­gine is, and why it’s so im­por­tant (p52), re­viewed the con­tro­ver­sial Far Cry 5 (p66) and went hands-on with the in­die ti­tles that you should be excited about on Xbox this year (p58). Sadly this will be my last is­sue in the editor’s chair at OXM, but I’m thrilled to be go­ing out on a high with such an epic is­sue. Next month’s mag should be just as good, too—I can’t wait to see it. For now, en­joy!
