ReCore Definitive Edition Hits Windows 10 and Xbox One

Posted on August 29, 2017 by Paul Thurrott in Games, Windows 10, Xbox One with 9 Comments

ReCore Definitive Edition is now available on both Windows 10 and Xbox One. It’s the first Xbox Game Pass game to ship on Windows 10.

ReCore Definitive Edition lets players experience the game’s mysterious and dynamic world with enhanced visuals (increased resolution and HDR), a brand-new adventure, ‘Eye of Obsidian’, and the long-awaited T8-NK Corebot (‘Tank’) who joins Joule, Mack, Seth, Duncan, and Violet as they explore new environments and dungeons while battling the deadly Obsidian Cult,” Microsoft’s Joseph Staten explains in a sentence that will mostly be gibberish to non-fans. “In addition, players will enjoy new weapon modes for Joule, new gear for all Corebots, more enemy types, and many other gameplay and performance enhancements.”

As its name suggests, ReCore Definitive Edition is a new edition of the game ReCore, which arrived last September as the very first Xbox Play Anywhere title. For this new edition, the game marks a second important milestone: ReCore Definitive Edition is the very first Xbox Game Pass game for Windows 10.

What this means is that Xbox gamers now have a new advantage over rival platforms: As part of the $9.99 Game Pass subscriptions, you can access games on both Xbox One and Windows 10. And because ReCore Definitive Edition is still an Xbox Play Anywhere title, that means you can cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10, pick up where you left off on either platform, and so on.


ReCore Definitive Edition is available from the Windows Store (or Xbox Store).

UPDATE: Already own ReCore? Microsoft tells me you will get the “Eye of Obsidian” adventure, the T8-NK Corebot, and all the other enhancements, for free, as an online update.
