Microsoft Announces State of Decay, Ori and the Blind Forest and ScreamRide Release Dates
Three pretty awesome games will be launching within a month of each other and Major Nelson has given details about all of them on his blog. First up is Ori and the Blind Forest, whose release date, fans unfortunately found out two months ago, would be pushed until "early 2015." Now, we have a real release date for the Xbox One and PC game of March 11, and we couldn't be more excited to get our hands on Moon Studios' single-player platform adventure game. You can pick up the game for $19.99, although that pricing may vary by region.
The next game up for release is State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition. Since the original version of State of Decay came out just over a year ago, it's definitely time for this new edition that promises an even bigger zombie apocalypse experience. The game will now not only be in 1080p (on Xbox One) which means increased details, but also include both of the original game's DLC packs. Players who already own the Xbox 360 version of the game will get a 33 percent discount off the $29.99 price when it comes out on April 28, as well as an exclusive new character.
Finally, the game that turns every rollercoaster game you've ever played completely backwards, ScreamRide, will be launching in March as well. The game is all about completely destroying the coasters that you build, sending the riders into the buildings that you've built around it. You get points for the amount of destruction that you do, which basically makes games like RollerCoaster Tycoon look super lame. Anything that you've created can be destroyed in one fell swoop of a disconnected track. You can ride the rollercoaster as you design it to see how awesome it is, and then take a piece of track off and seriously get into the game. The game will kick off for North and South America on March 3 for $39.99
You can check out the specifics on all these games on Major Nelson's blog, but we can assure you that you'd better prepare your wallet for Spring 2015 with these releases.
