It Looks Like Scalebound May Come To PC, Too
If someone told us that we would be writing about all the main Xbox One exclusives moving to Windows PC in the space of a couple months, we could have hardly believed. Sure, the trend was already evident, but even the most hopeful PC gamer would have been hard pressed to believe in such an overwhelming wave.
The first one was ReCore, announced back in early January. Then Quantum Break, Forza 6 Apex, yesterday we got hints for Gears of War 4 and now there’s even some evidence for Scalebound.
Reddit user nodead posted a list of Game IDs for Windows Store extracted from the Package.StoreAssociation.xml file, found among the rest of the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition files. The list includes, among others, titles like ReCore, Forza Horizon 3 and Scalebound.
Scalebound is the action RPG in development at Platinum Games, with Hideki Kamiya at the helm. The game, where the protagonist Drew fights alongside dragon Thuban, has been delayed until 2017 a couple of months ago to make sure that the experience would be properly polished.
Unlike previous Platinum Games titles, Scalebound will feature a non-linear experience with a certain degree of exploration allowed. The Unreal Engine 4 powered title will also feature cooperative gameplay with up to four players banding together (each one with their respective dragons) against stronger foes.
For the moment being this has to remain strictly under the rumor label, but with Microsoft’s new strategy of bringing all the biggest franchises to Windows 10 we wouldn’t be surprised at all to see this officially confirmed at E3 or Gamescom 2016. Stay tuned on Wccftech for all the latest on Scalebound.
