Microsoft to Redesign Xbox Achievement System

In an interview with Windows Central Xbox Vice President Mike Ybarra said that they want to do a lot more to reflect and let people show their gaming history.

Players can purchase loot chests, war chests, xp boosts and bundles. Loot chests contain weapons armour, and xp boosts. War Chests provide Orc followers and training orders that help level up and customize Orcs. Unlock just XP boosts and bundles that includes all of the above items together. You can purchase loot boxes by gaining in game currency called Mirian or through Gold which can either be earned or bought. Everything acquired by chests can be earned in game.

LawBreakers Isn’t Breaking Records

LawBreakers has recently launched and the numbers on PC appear to be rather low. Playerbase is down 60% since launch and Concurrent Players data has dipped at one point below 1K players. The number I’ve seen has been just above 800 players. Cliff Bleszinski says he isn’t worried and is taking this game in a long tail approach. He is hoping to build up the player base while they continue working on it.

No Man’s Sky Atlus Rises Update

Massive game updates probably too much for us to cover on the show. The things I’m mostly interested in is the addition of story content, new worlds types and biomes, crashed freighters, updated UI, visual improvements (things used to look more smudgy before), portals (let you revisit old planets and bases as well as visit new worlds. You can share glyph combinations to travel to a specific place), improvements to space combat, low flight, addition of multiplayer (16 players can see and communicate with each other with voice), can summon your ship anywhere, and improved inventory management.
