Microsoft’s E3 press conference was packed with games, so you might have missed the news that Double Fine’s Massive Chalice was announced as a console exclusive for Xbox One.
.. “Nothing has changed with our plans to bring Massive Chalice to the PC and to make it available for our backers first,” they said in a recent update to backers. “YEAH! During this time we'll be porting the game to the Xbox One.
As soon as we're done porting the game, we'll launch it as a console exclusive on Xbox One. We're super stoked to have this additional support in giving Massive Chalice the next-gen console treatment!“
Massive Chalice was billed as a tactical strategy game that will be a hybrid of X-COM and Final Fantasy Tactics, coupled with a bloodlines and breeding mechanic.
Man, when I first found out about this game, it sounded like this huge Elder-Scrolls type of game. Double-Fine strategy RPG thing, with an awesome art style and controller support sounds just amazing.
Here's to hoping 'Massive Chalice' isn't just a metaphor! :D
