"ReCore" – the first Xbox Play Anywhere game giving fans access to both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions is available to purchase starting Sep 09/13.
Described as the "original action-adventure game", it comes from acclaimed creator Keiji Inafune's Comcept Inc., Armature Studio and Microsoft Studios.
Now, fans can explore the planet of Far Eden through the game's heroine, Joule Adams, and her Corebot companions.
The game is available at Microsoft Stores, online and at other retailers around the world. It launches in Japan on Sep. 15, and fans in Europe and other global regions will be able to join the fun on Sep. 16, noted Xbox team.
"ReCore builds on our shared passion for classic games like MegaMan and Metroid with features such as a deep crafting system and a large world to explore. The bond between the game's heroine, Joule Adams, and her charming "Corebot" companions, Mack, Seth and Duncan, are the heart-and-soul of ReCore's gameplay as well as its story. We hope you enjoy these characters' many adventures on the planet "Far Eden", where dangers, mysteries and challenges await in its windswept dunes and hidden dungeons," described Joseph Staten, Senior Creative Director for ReCore.
In other gaming news, developers of "Forza Horizon 3," released a video showcasing how they put real sky in the game.
The team built a revolutionary new camera, and shipped it across the world and slept in the wilderness with deadly spiders to film one thing – "the sky," said Ralph Fulton. And because it is real sky, it also produces real light that "refracts, bounces and reflects in a physically correct way off every surface" in the game, Fulton added.
Adding, "they camped in Australian Outback for the summer. Every hour they had to change the camera lenses, but that also meant 'de-spidering' camera because there are little crevices which are perfect for spiders to hide in," Fulton said.
Also, a new firmware update for Xbox One Preview Program memebers released and bring some fixes to Looking for Groups and Clubs, fixes to background audio as well as HDR support for the Xbox One S.

Microsoft has blocked StoreParser from listing Xbox Store deals, Major Nelson took to Reddit to explain the reason stating: "I can say there is not a Store API that the site was approved to use and to my knowledge the site was scraping data off of the store. In other words, it was using unofficial/unsanctioned methods to collect the information. Not something that server and database admins like," Nelson explained.
We've been perma blocked. If you enjoy our service please retweet / post in forums to let MS know. Without your help we're finished [2/2]— StoreParser (@StoreParser) September 12, 2016
