Plenty of Xbox One Indie Games Coming To The Console This Year
Today, at Microsoft’s annual E3 2014 conference, a whole host of new Xbox One Indie games were unveiled, through Microsoft’s new ID @ Xbox initiative, all of which will be exclusive to the Xbox One console.
Microsoft announced plenty of different Xbox One Indie games, at this year’s E3 conference; 19 games were announced, in total – the full list can be found below:
- Knight Squad
- Plague Inc. Evolved
- White Night
- Hyper Light Drifter
- Lifeless Planet
- Slash Dash
- Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
- Mighty No. 9
- Fenix Rage
The majority of the 19 Xbox One Indie games will be exclusive to the console whilst some are already available on PC with a few others becoming available on other platforms later this year.
With Microsoft losing a huge market share, after their statements back last year about not supporting Indie developers at all, it looks as though Microsoft are taking a step in the right direction with getting Indie developers on board to create Xbox One-first games.
As Sony have successfully aided and supported Indie developers for some time now, on the PS Vita, PS3 and PS4: is it time for Microsoft to get back in the game by providing new and exciting Xbox One Indie games before their competition?
