Xbox: The Official Magazine Xmas 2017 Issue 158

Published 17th November 

Get ready for battle, readers. This month we’ve airdropped right into PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to bring you a ton of new information on the massive shooter heading to Xbox One this year. We visited Bluehole, the devs working on the game, and spoke to three members of the team – including PlayerUnknown himself Brendan Greene. This month you’ll find all the information you need about the battle royale title ahead of it’s release in December. We hope you’re ready for the fight.

That’s not all, though. We’ve also spoken to MachineGames, the team behind Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, about how it feels to make the most unexpectedly topical game of the year. They also give us a sneaky hint about development for Wolfenstein III…

Elsewhere, we’ve looked into the history of horror games on Xbox, allowing us to revisit some real classics, and remind you of some old-school gems you might have missed. Are you sad that Halloween has come and gone for another year? This feature will give you everything you need to make you feel the fear again.

Of course, we’ve also got a packed Previews section this month. As well as Red Dead Redemption II and Resident Evil 7 DLC, we’ve also packed in new info on Jurassic World: Evolution, Ooblets, a new Trials-like game called Steel Rats, and more. The future is bright for Xbox One, even if you don’t have much time to think about releases next year when you’re so busy playing all the new releases that have just landed.

Talking of new releases, we’ve got a whole bunch of reviews for you as well, this month – the section is packed. Wolfenstein II leads the way, closely followed by COD: WWII, Assassin’s Creed, Morphite, AER and plenty more. Then there’s the Extra section, which this month includes a fond look back at Far Cry 3 and it’s bonkers brother Blood Dragon. We’ve also played Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode – a cheeky nod to PlayerUnknown’s own game type – to see how it stacks up. How does it compare? There’s only one way to find out…


…Erm, it’s to buy the new issue and read about it, by the way. Just thought we should make that clear.
