Xbox One game Below launching in 2014

Capybara Games president Nathan Vella confirms upcoming roguelike launching next year first on Microsoft's next-gen console.

by

Below, the all-new roguelike from Super Time Force studio Capybara Games, will be released on Xbox One in 2014, studio president Nathan Vella told GameSpot at PAX Prime.

"It's not a launch game at all. It'll be 2014," Vella said. "Yeah, I'll say 2014 because I hate release dates. I want to finish the game."

Below was announced during Microsoft's Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing in June. The game will be a timed-exclusive for the Xbox One, and will release on other platforms later.

Check back later for more from GameSpot's conversation with Vella.

This game reminds me quite alot of the PS3 game 'Journey'. The front cover especially, the mountain, the light beam and the little hooded figure within.

Damn, I thought it was a sequel to Journey for a second (yes I know Journey was on the PS3). This looks cool, though.

An indie title not on Sony's console....Sony fanboys don't care...announce this as a PS4 exclusive and they praise it like the second coming of Jesus

Even indie games that receive low scores, most of them have unique gameplay styles, unlike the monotony of most AAA titles.

@Irvin you're missing out on the Xbox experience if you don't have a Kinect. Not so with Sony's motion and voice.

God i cant even get a PS4 till 2014 because its all sold out :S and Xbox 180 isn't going to get released till 2014 as well lol they have a good line up of games at launch but waiting for it that long only means that ps4 will get them at the same time (depending) when the release date is for it.

My PC with a 7970 should be able to last this whole generation, And if Sony shows me something that I cant live without I will purchase a PS4.

I actually already pre ordered a day 1 edition console. For the XB1 but I might not open it until I am certain that paying 200 dollars for Kinect is worth it.

That's what I'm talking about. You always have some dumbass little jab like "oh their copying." Well, sony has voice recognition now. So they must be copying too, right?

Must be a damn lot of exceptions then, for me and my Sony-Fanboy-Friends think it's a good thing either that Xbox One now cleverly copies so much things after the PS4 ^^

@At3fD Actually this is coming out on the PS4. It's only a timed-exclusive and before it was announced that it was a timed-exclusive I was seriously considering getting an Xbox One primarily for this game alone, as it simply looks beautiful, but alas it's only a timed-exclusive so I can't wait to get this on PS4 or on Steam.

LOLed, more like you are talking about xbox fanboys...

@At3fD Your comment is technically incorrect. If you read the article, you'll see that this game is a timed exclusive and therefor, will likely be coming out on the Playstation as well, just not right away.

As for fanboys, they're just as bad on both sides of the fence when given enough reason to blabber on. There's not much to say about that.

@At3fD and that is the exact reason why i'm not buying ps4 bcz it's full of these shitty fanboys and shitt everywhere they go..they just bad-mouth everywhere they go..don't want to game with these shitters..!!

@At3fD sony fanboys are like that they keep having to try and convince them self they make the right decision. if there console was so good that would not need to do that. what ever console you are getting you should just get it and enjoy the games not spread hate.for the competition

@Bigjoe1627 Times exclusive? Since when is TitanFall a timed exclusive...it's only coming out for PC/360/X1. Playstation is NOT EVEN IN THE EQUATION

@chayhandsome Hey moron XBOX ONE releases in November 2013! BELOW releases in 2014 and it's an X1 exclusive.

@guitarist1980 its only $100 and how can you decide if its worth it if you dont try it? besides even without kinect the xb1 offers several more features that you cannot get on the ps4 even if you dont think they justify the $100 difference

Biotasticmeat

@Klop_Job @At3fD No its not. It was a rumor that has been shot down. Below is completely for the One, especially since Microsoft spent a large sum of money to keep it that way.

@fuff115 @At3fD i'm gonna have to agree with you on that.

@jtthegame316 @At3fD Actually, a fanboy isn't someone who's trying to justify their own purchase. Rather, they're just trying to belittle others for theirs. Why? Because for many, it's part of human nature to run down others for whatever reason they can find and if they can't find a reason, they'll make their own one.

@jtthegame316 @At3fD  i'm buying both next-gen consoles they both have great exclusives !

@2Black2Strong The only reason Titanfall can not come to PS4 right now is because they don't have a lot of people in there studio. No lie Microsoft did pay them but they only paid them to keep there mouth shut. That's why when ever they where asked if it will ever come to PS4 they would say they can't say.

@2Black2Strong @Bigjoe1627 Why would EA not want to release it on PS4? it's common sense, there's lots of money to be made. It's inevitable that it will come out on PS4 eventually, just like the Mass Effect games with PS3.

@2Black2Strong @Bigjoe1627 I agree with you saying that "Titanfall" is not in the equation, but I'm thinking it'll be released for the PS4 eventually.  I could be wrong, but I have a strong feeling that "Titanfall WILL come to Sony's next-gen console.  Since the PS4 pre-orders are so strong and most gamers are choosing a PS4 over an Xbox One (at least 2:1), EA would be stupid to not release the game on the PS4.  I mean, at least for now, there's more money for devs in creating a game for the PS4 than for the Xbox One, at least IMO (but it's gotta be a fact, right?)

@2Black2Strong @Acekidder @jtthegame316 You guys are idiot maybe he live in one of those country when Xbox One won't be release until 2014. Y'all should want them to release until next year because right now Microsoft don't even know when's the release date. If you ask me I think they're trying to rush it and that can only lead up to the next gen of RROD.

@Biotasticmeat @Klop_Job Ha! You're completely missing the point. I said right at the start that I would've gotten an Xbox One for this game alone, yet since it has been confirmed that the game is in fact coming out on other platforms later after the timed-exclusivity with Xbox One is over then I shall simply wait and purchase it then instead. I am debating with you the fact that this game is NOT a permanent Xbox One exclusive, which you can't seem to grasp. I also said that I would get it on Steam, right at the start in my first message, so even if it doesn't come out on PS4 (which it will) I can still play it on Steam alternatively. If there was any a fanboy here, it would be you, especially for hating on Journey, a game which you probably haven't even played.

Again I tell you to learn to read. The simple fact is that Below is NOT an Xbox One exclusive. This is a simple fact. Learn to read ya fcking ponce.

@Klop_Job Learn to not be such a hard fan boy. Your just jealous because not only is it not coming to the PS4 (because even if it release's multi-platform the only other things it will be going to is Xbox 360 and Windows) but it is also going to be much better than that shitty puzzle game Journey. All you do is go around in a desert and solve simplistic puzzles. The graphics I will say are incredible but graphics alone does not make a game. It was way to overrated and besides, Below offers RPG elements in it part to being a rouge-like which means increased replay ability amongst other good things, not just a bunch of half ass puzzles even a third grader can solve.

Klop_Job
Klop_Job

@Biotasticmeat@Klop_Job@At3fDYes it is. The above article itself says: "The game will be a timed-exclusive for the Xbox One, and will release on other platforms later."

"Below will only be a timed-exclusive on Xbox One, developer Capybara Games has confirmed"

Learn to read.

@TenraiSenshi It amounts to the same thing... if they belittle the opposition it makes them feel better about what they've bought themselves (or more likely had Mum buy for them).

@Bigjoe1627 @2Black2Strong Are you really that stupid, They DIDNT pay ANYONE to keep quiet. How do you pay people to be quiet? How fuckin' retarded are you? They have NO PLANS at the moment of releasing it on PS4 and that's what they said. The future might be different but as of now...NO. What does the amount of people in their studio have to do with it? HAHAHAHAHAHA! jesus Christ you're dumb.You sound like a child with your comments

@2Black2Strong@phppapa@Bigjoe1627Like that CONTRACT with minecraft? Not really all that convincing, and we're talking about EA here, the king of draining every dime possible out of the consumer.

@Bigjoe1627 @2Black2Strong @Acekidder @jtthegame316 You sound like a child. How old are you? First off, the XBOX ONE was FCC certified before the PS4 which means the game has already passed all of it's tests. Second, they said it was being released in November before Sony gave a date, so STFU you 12 year old child. They dont have to give an exact date. Sony did the same thing at their press conference in Feb. They WAITED to see what the other guy was gonna do. .....DUMMY.
