ADR1FT No Longer Coming to Xbox One

Published

 on

The Xbox One version of space exploration game ADR1FT has been cancelled, according to developer Three One Zero’s CEO Adam Orth.

Having launched in March for PC and July for PS4, the game had previously been rumoured to arrive on Xbox One in September. Today however, Orth confirmed to New Game Network that the game will no longer appear on Microsoft’s console, adding that he hopes people “are able to find some way to experience and enjoy it on […] other platforms”.

Despite its sci-fi trappings, ADR1FT is typically classified as a ‘walking simulator’, like Dear Esther and Firewatch, in which players must explore a given setting and piece together a story from environmental cues and audio or text narration. For ADR1FT, that environment was a destroyed space station.

After garnering a lot of pre-release praise for its promising aesthetic, story, and gameplay, the title stumbled on release, earning a 5.8/10 here at OnlySP, with our reviewer, Benjamin James, saying that, “[a]lthough ADR1FT does have worthwhile moments,” when “the perception twisting thrill of navigating a 3D space environment wears thin, [it] doesn’t have much left to offer”.

While it will never arrive on the Xbox One, ADR1FT is still available on PC, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PS4.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
