I've already downloaded both via searching on the consoles store. Weird. it's true they're not officially out until Wednesday.

Out now on Game Preview -



Descenders is extreme downhill mountain biking for the modern era, with procedurally generated worlds, and where mistakes have real consequences.

Rather weirdly that actually looks too fast for the sport it represents. For their faults I think No Fear and Downhill Domination at least got that aspect pretty much dialled in.

edit: needs hot air balloons as well.

Not even Lance Armstrong could get his knees up that quick and he was mainly off his tits.

Reminds me of that Codemasters game from about 20 years ago.

No Fear Downhill Mountain Biking. I remember playing the demo that came on one of the OPM magazines to death. The pedalling dynamic was strangely satisfying.

Outstanding stuff from Microsoft, looks like a fantastic idea and like it has real scope to let people setup whatever they need to play.

If it's essentially a normal Xbox pad with an accessible form-factor then it should also be fully PC compatible which gives it an impossibly large library.

I'd expect/hope that they release specific drivers so it can work on Windows natively.

EDIT: Reading Eurogamer's piece on it makes it sound even better. If the big buttons are programmable it could allow for some interesting setups even for players without special requirements.

Check out some of our stuff!

They've said it just shows up in Windows 10 as a standard Xbox pad so any game that supports the Xboxone controller will work with this.

It's a great looking product and hopefully they can work out a deal with Sony and Nintendo so that this either works with those consoles or that they can release PlayStation and Switch versions of the hub that work with all the accessories. Ideas like this shouldn't be platforms exclusive.

8bitdo make a bluetooth adapter that allows you to use Xbox contollers on Switch already so if this is showing as a standard Xbox pad in Windows then theres no reason it cant also be used on a Switch with that adapter.

This is really cool, anything that makes gaming more accessible to people has to be welcomed.

So it should be straightforward to get this working on a Switch? Obviously full official support would be better but that's still good to hear.

I hope they can make this cross platform. Brilliant work.

Just watched the video, man there's a lot of onions here....

Same here, dude :shifty: .

MS takes a lot of stick - and some of it may well be justified! - but you have to applaud initiatives like this.

I'm very impressed that MS have actually thought about disabled gamers.

Its early days but I genuinely hope both Sony and Nintendo take note of this significant development towards breaking down the barriers many disabled people face.

Edit: I think I might be able to use it with the accessibility switches I already have, if the USB port on the back works with the mouth joystick/mouse I have then this could be a real game changer for me :toot:

May Xbox Update Becomes Available Today

Today the May Xbox One update arrives for gamers around the world. As part of our ongoing effort to continually improve the Xbox experience, we’ve got a feature-packed update that enables you to get even more out of your console with some exciting new features. Here’s what’s new:

Connect with Gamers Across Xbox Live and Discord

In response to your feedback, you now have the option to link your Discord account to your Xbox account, making it easier than ever to see what your friends are playing. Starting from the Discord app on PC or on a mobile device, you will see an option to link your Xbox account with your Discord account through the Connections tab under User Settings. Click on the Xbox Live option and sign in to your account. After enabling permission, your accounts will be linked. Starting from your Xbox One, open the Account Settings menu and select “Linked social accounts.” Here, you will see a new option for linking your Discord account. Once you receive your unique code from Xbox, open the Discord app and insert the code within the Connections tab. After following these few simple steps, your accounts will be linked and your Xbox Live presence will be shared across Discord, enabling friends and users in your same Discord servers to see what you are playing on Xbox Live.

120Hz Video Refresh Rate Support

Console owners already enjoy variable refresh rates, the option of 1440p resolution, and auto low latency mode (read more about that here). In this update, we’re adding support for additional panel refresh rates. Gamers using monitors and televisions that support a 120Hz refresh rate can now turn on 120Hz support for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions on Xbox One S and Xbox One X. This high refresh rate option means you can now take full advantage of displays with 120Hz capabilities. High refresh rate support can provide a smoother gaming experience and lower latency on some displays, and games may benefit from reduced tearing and stuttering via 120Hz output.

Trim Clips Directly in the Guide

With the April Xbox Update, we added a new sharing feature that helps gamers upload their captured screenshots and videos directly to Twitter. Now, sharing is getting even quicker! With the May update, you can trim your recent game captures directly from the Guide, so you won’t need to switch to Upload Studio to make a quick cut to your saved clips.

Improved Family Settings

Xbox One continues to help parents keep their families safe with updates to family settings. We’re adding a “Details” page where parents can easily find and manage all family settings on Xbox One. Parents will easily be able to tell which family and content settings are set up and configured. Important settings that are turned off or require attention will be flagged for parents, as well. Some settings, such as activity reports and Screen Time Limits, can only be accessed through the web: We’ll identify those settings and provide links where parents can easily set them up.

New Intuitive Button Commands

Some of the button commands throughout the dashboard are being refreshed for easier navigation. For example, you can now use the “View” button on Home to edit the order of blocks or reorder items within Groups. Pressing the “View” button on the main tab of the Guide will also now display additional capture options. Note: If you group your collections in My Games & Apps by letter, you will now need to select a letter to view all groups.

Improvements to the Xbox Accessories App

The Xbox Accessories app has been modernized to make it easier to navigate, and to look and feel more consistent with the rest of the Xbox One dashboard.

That last update made the home screen snappy whereas before it would slightly lag.

Popped out for a spot of nosh on my lunch break and snapped up Wolfenstein 2 and Fallout 4 both for £15 I know Wolfenstein is X Enhanced due to it saying on the box and I'm sure Fallout is isn't it?
