ReCore was first announced at last years E3 and since then news has been a bit thin on the ground, until now that is. The good news is that Microsoft revealed yesterday that ReCore will come to Windows 10 PC, the bad news though is the release date for Xbox One has changed from Spring 2016 to a more general release date of sometime in 2016. We’ll have to see whether it comes to PC first or if this delay is to allow devs the time to get it ready for release to both markets. Anyway, what is ReCore? If you’ve been living under a rock for the last 6 months or so then the following should be able to answer all your questions.
Legendary creator Keiji Inafune and his staff at comcept Inc. teams up with Armature Studio (the makers behind the critically acclaimed “Metroid Prime” franchise) and Microsoft Studios for a new original adventure. Developed for Xbox One, “ReCore” marries tried-and-true action-adventure gameplay with incredible visuals, a unique art style and an emotionally engaging story.
