One of the more pleasant surprises of Microsoft’s E3 2015 press event was the reveal of Xbox One exclusive, ReCore. Sandwiched in between some of the publisher’s heavy-hitters such as Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider, the sci-fi title is being developed under the watchful eyes of Mark Pacini and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.
Beyond the mystical reveal trailer, not much was showcased in terms of the actual story, and there’s still a lot we don’t know about Microsoft’s upcoming exclusive. How and ever, in a recent interview via Xbox, Pacini and Inafune sat down to talk about ReCore, its gameplay elements, and what fans can look forward to despite the fact that the title remains in the early stages of development.
