E3 2016: Scalebound rises from the ashes on Xbox One and Windows 10

It's been several months since we've last heard about Scalebound, but today, Microsoft has once again highlighted Platinum Games' upcoming title.


Platinum Games’ Scalebound was originally announced at E3 2014, and while it was missing at E3 2015, the title was presented a few months later at Gamescom 2015. While we know Scalebound won’t release until 2017, Microsoft has decided to once again highlight one of its highly-anticipated Xbox One games during today’s showcase.

During the showcase, Platinum Games showcased the biggest fight we've seen out of Scalebound so far as several players faced off against a massive leviathan-crab-like monster. The characters were diverse, using weapons like swords, bows, spells, and more to take down the massive creature throughout the several minutes long clip. It's a really interesting thing to see in action, and with the addition of launching on Windows 10 PCs at the same time, Scalebound could turn out to be a huge hit for Microsoft. The game is slated for a 2017 release date, but sadly we'll have to wait to learn more about the game's characters, world, and more.
