Umbra 3 Visibility Solution middleware available for Xbox One

Umbra 3 Visibility Solution middleware available for Xbox One
Published by: forahobby on Monday, May 27, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Umbra Software announced early last week that its Umbra 3 Visibility Solution, the same software being used in several upcoming games such as Bungie’s "Destiny", is now available for evaluations for all licensed Xbox One and Xbox 360 developers.

UMBRA 3.2

The Umbra 3 middleware powers up real-time graphics performance and productivity with automatic occluder generation and software based occlusion culling. The software has been fully optimized to utilize the power of Xbox One.

Umbra 3 improves development workflow by enabling both rapid content iteration and the creation of more sophisticated levels and more detailed graphics content. The software automatically generates occluders from “polygon soup” empowering artists to spend their time on what really matters – creating awesome looking game worlds. See a video of Umbra 3 in action below and learn more about the software just after the break.



Umbra 3 is an industry standard occlusion culling system being used by developers such as Bungie, Eidos Montreal, Remedy, ArenaNet, Square Enix and many others.

Umbra 3 makes sure you only render objects visible to the player. This powers up your rendering to enable better visuals running at an improved frame rate. Umbra 3 provides this as non-intrusively and with as little overhead as possible with any type of 3D content as input.

Need for Speed Rivals Announced For Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, 360, PS3, PC

Need for Speed Rivals Announced For Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, 360, PS3, PC
Published by: forahobby on Friday, May 24, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Electronic Arts Inc. today announced Need for Speed Rivals, an action/racing game created by an inspired new development team, using a powerful engine and delivering next-generation gameplay, will be available November 19, 2013 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and will also be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.


Need for Speed Rivals is being developed by EA’s newest studio Ghost Games, who bring new thinking and innovation to the Need for Speed franchise in partnership with the expert racing team at Criterion Games. Built on the Frostbite 3 game engine , Need for Speed Rivals captures the adrenaline and intensity of the street’s ultimate rivalry between cops and racers, in a stunning open road environment. Get your first look at the Need for Speed Rival.


In "Need for Speed Rivals", gamers play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences. As a racer, the goal is to become infamous for taking risks behind the wheel and capturing your most intense escapes on video for the world to see. The more cops players evade, the more Speed Points they collect, enabling them to unlock new cars and items. Keep raising the stakes race after race to become an ever-more valuable target to the cops – but risk losing it all if busted. As a cop, players work together as part of a team in pursuit of racers, earning prominence and rising in the ranks of the Police Force with every bust. Achieving higher ranks unlocks new police only cars and more powerful pursuit tech.

Techlands' Dying Light Coming To Next-Gen and Current-Gen Consoles in 2014

Techlands' Dying Light Coming To Next-Gen and Current-Gen Consoles in 2014
Published by: forahobby on Friday, May 24, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that "Dying Light", a new first-person, action survival horror video game with a portentous day-night cycle set in a vast open world overrun with zombies, will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2014.


During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning’s first light.

“We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations, Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The partnership with Techland allows us to combine their successful development capabilities with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s one-of-a-kind publishing expertise to deliver on this title.”

“The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle,” said Paweł Marchewka, CEO of Techland. “Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."

Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Introducing Darkmatter, the world's first Xbox laptop that you can buy as a fully assembled product or in kit form. Now Xbox ONE compatible!


Inspired by Ben Heck and many other modders and hackers in the Xbox Community, Darkmatter is the world's first portable Open Source Xbox system that you can buy as a fully finished product, or in kit form.

The project is Open Source and once the funding goal on Kickstarter is met, all design files will be released to the public. The laptop features touch controls for eject, synch, volume etc. It also comes with built in stereo speakers, a headphone jack and an amp. The display is a 15 inch 720p pane. A DVD drive is included and the system is compatible with all Xbox 360 games as it is based on the slim version of the popular Microsoft console.

Darkmatter Xbox Laptop Features
  • Thin
  • Xbox 360 and XBox ONE (kit only) compatible
  • Easy to build
  • Affordable
  • Equipped with an internal DVD
  • Able to work with Xbox peripherals such as Kinect(r)
  • Equipped with capacitive touch controls for volume, mute, sync, power etc.

The Darkmatter laptop is powered off the same power brick that comes with your Xbox. When you contribute at the $999 or greater levels, you get a fully functional, ready-to-go Darkmatter unit with the power brick included. Please note, Darkmatter is not equipped with an internal battery.


Darkmatter incorporates an Xbox 360 Slim 4GB inside, which means that it supports Wi-Fi connectivity, Xbox Live and all the other Xbox 360 features. As of Update #1, we've announced Xbox ONE compatibility for the $499 reward level (complete kit).
