Release dates announced for Rocket League on Xbox One, The Flame in the Flood and Telltale’s new Walking Dead miniseries

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

The Destinys, Street Fighters and other major titles that we base so much of our news here have failed the Gamersphere. They are nowhere to be seen this day, and leave us scrounging somewhat. In plain English, it’s a slow news day for our typical AAA fare, so we’ll look to the smaller titles picking up the slack today.

We’ll start with the biggest of the smaller titles, Psyonix’s popular future-soccer/Hot Wheels mashup Rocket League and its impending Xbox One port. Microsoft announced this week that the game will finally break the PlayStation 4’s console exclusivity next Wednesday, February 17, priced at $19.99 (or what $19.99 amounts to in other territories).

Fans who’ve been eagerly anticipating the game’s arrival in the Xbox ecosystem will be rewarded for their patience with three of its DLC packs already bundled in for free, providing them with a collection of 6 premium cars, 36 decals and several more bonus customization items. X1 players will also receive two exclusive cars –the Gears of War-themed Armadillo and Halo-themed Warthog– along with many more Xbox-flavored items.

Next up, a game we haven’t reported on since late 2014. For those in need of a recap, the game, The Flame in the Flood, is the debut title from The Molasses Flood, a studio made up of veterans from the late Irrational Games, Harmonix and Bungie. It’s a “rogue-lite” adventure game where players take control of a young woman in “a forgotten, post-societal America” trying to find her way down a procedurally-generated river, while at the same time hunting, trapping and crafting in order to avoid the dangers of the surrounding wilderness.

The game, having been funded through Kickstarter two years ago, is finally complete and ready to hit the Xbox One, PC and Mac on February 24.

And because three is a nice even number (don’t question my logic, it’s watertight), let’s talk about one more game, Telltale Games’ next dip into its highly-acclaimed take on The Walking Dead. The company announced today that that miniseries it announced in December, The Walking Dead: Michonne, will be kicking off with its first episode, In Too Deep, on February 23, with the second episode, Give No Shelter, following in March and the third, What We Deserve, wrapping things up in April.

Before then, Telltale will show off the first episode’s first five minutes on its YouTube channel this Sunday, February 14, at 5:30 PM PT/ 8:30 PM ET.

The miniseries will be released for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC and Mac. It’ll also head to iOS and Android devices, but on the slightly later date of February 25. The whole package will set players back a total of $14.99, a price they’ll have to pay upfront with the first episode.
