Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft has announced some exciting plans to bring its Xbox Game Pass to PC.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella briefly mentioned the plans today. Nadella attributes the decision to Microsoft’s improved standing in the gaming industry.

For those unfamiliar with the service, the Xbox Game Pass allows Xbox players to play from an expanding list of games. The list includes first and third-party games and only costs $10 a month after the free trial period ends.

Xbox has really been pushing its “play anywhere” initiative and Game Pass on PC definitely adds up.

Nadella gave no further information regarding the service such as pricing or a release date.

One of Microsoft’s recent moves in the industry surrounds the rumor that it will buy Obsidian Entertainment. Check out the story here.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
