Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound To Be A Big AAA Game

| January 11, 2015

Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound To Be A Big AAA Game News Xbox  Scalebound Platinum Games

Microsoft Game Studios Partner Creative Director, Ken Lobb, talked recently more on what’s been going on with the recently announced Scalebound.

Lobb was recently interviewed on The Inner Circle Podcast where he spoke more on what type of game players can expect with the Xbox One’s Scalebound. Not a lot of information has been revealed about the game since it was first announced way back at E3 2014.

Lobb said that Platinum Games approached Microsoft in order to help develop Scalebound. This is one of the reasons why the game is an Xbox One exclusive. Platinum Games felt Microsoft could help market the game to a Western audience.

Lobb explained Scalebound is not like a Monster Hunter game, but he did say dragons can be your companion. He also teased that we will get to see a playable build for the game later this year too.

He also said that Scalebound is “definitely a big AAA” video game. He described the game as “very real and very awesome” and he feels it has the potential to be “the game of all time“.

With Microsoft Studios and Platinum Games at the helm, Scalebound is sure to be a fun game whenever it comes out for the Xbox One. If Lobb is to be believed, it could be one game that is sure to blow everyone away.

  • Curious what this game will become. There is potential here.

  • Country Boy Lucifer

    Great pedigree from the studio, I’m looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

    Sounds like a 2016 or maybe even early 2017 release though :(

    • Viperbit3

      i agree it is unlikely this game will see a 2015 release since we have not heard anything about it since the E3 2014 reveal. but then Microsoft can surprise us all with a 2015 release

    • doplerradar

      We may possibly get gameplay at E3 2015 or Gamescom though. All depends on when they are planning on releasing the game.

  • Viperbit3

    Scalebound looks amazing let’s hope it will be amazing. I can easily say this is one of the many Xbox one exclusives I’m looking forward to. Just hope we don’t get excited for the game and then it turns out to be terrible. Microsoft I have faith in you

  • Adam

    Very interesting.

  • ?????

    Can’t wait.

  • forza4ever

    Its a microsoft exclusive…it will at least be very very good. Best game ever we shall see.

    • Country Boy Lucifer

      Lol man you’re such a fan boy

      • ?????

        And you don’t say a word about YAFOW…

        • Country Boy Lucifer

          About who and the what now?

          • ?????

            You are flat out wrong…the guy who upvotes himself with dead accounts?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Oh, well he doesn’t start shit with me little xbot so why would I?

  • Jfdelman

    Not sure why a lot of people were high on this after e3. What they showed of it wasn’t interesting at all, and the art style was pretty boring.

    • Zach Dolbeare

      If anything, it wasn’t boring.

    • Country Boy Lucifer

      Its more the studio that’s making it. Platinum are awesome

    • ?????

      I guess that also goes for every PS game by that logic.

      • Jfdelman

        Okay? Not sure what PS has to do with this, also not sure why you didn’t include Nintendo. I’m assuming we have a fanboy here, congrats on your allegiance to plastic and logos.

        • ?????

          Coming from this guy.

  • Zach Dolbeare

    As of now, Im most excited for SMITE, Division, and Scalebound. No Man’s Sky, if that ever makes it to Xbox.

    • Terminator

      Hope so since they haven’t said it will NEVER come to Xbox One like they did with Streed Fighter.
      Now if its a single player only game then I will buy it on PS4.

      • S-L Million

        Scalebound to ps4?

        • Terminator

          I was talking about No Man’s Sky

          • S-L Million

            Ok. that game looks intresting. But I’m sure it’s not going to sell as much to not be ported onto xbox.

      • ?????

        I think it might. On Xbox Twitter they were talking about it. As well as Grim Fandango.
        Worst comes to worst I’ll buy a PS4.

    • Country Boy Lucifer

      I wouldn’t get too excited about smite. Its the worst mobo I’ve played

      The rest I completely agree with

      • Zach Dolbeare

        I’ve never played a MOBA, so I’m excited to try the genre. (I don’t PC game; except Runescape,occasionally)

        • Country Boy Lucifer

          I’d dust of the PC and download league of legends then as smite will probably sour you on the genre and they have some great games, LoL and DOTA being 2 of the best.

  • shredenvain

    Platinum games makes some great games.
    I for one can’t wait to get my hands on Scalebound.

  • Bailey Olsen

    “Lobb explained Scalebound is not like a Monster Hunter game, but he did say dragons can be your companion.”

    Damn. All I want is Monster Hunter on my Xbox

  • Henry

    “definitely a big AAA” video game. He described the game as “very real and very awesome” and he feels it has the potential to be “the game of all time“. This gets me excited!!!

  • JC

    To live up to that sort of hype talk, I’d guess a minimum year out from release…It’ll have to take advantage of proper SDK and API tools that have FINALLY been released as of Nov/Dec last year. No way “the game of all time” can be DX 11.x based…
