Developed for Xbox One and Windows 10, “ReCore” marries action and platformer gameplay with incredible visuals, a unique art style and an emotionally engaging story.

    Developed by Comcept Inc. and Armature Studio (the makers of “Metroid Prime”), and pulling from their collective years of expertise and inspiration from classic action-adventure games, “ReCore” provides a fresh gameplay experience full of exploration and strategic combat for action and platformer fans.

  • A Mysterious and Dynamic World

    Explore a beautifully rendered and unique world as Joule Adams, one of the last remaining humans on the planet, Far Eden. Find new dungeons, enemies and treasure in a region known as the Shifting Sands, where massive sandstorms come and go, altering the height of the terrain.

  • Shared Progression across Xbox One and Windows 10

    “ReCore” supports cross-save between Xbox One and Windows 10, so progress on one device can be continued when playing on the other device.

    With over 12 hours of gameplay, five Corebot frames to collect and customize, shifting sandstorms that change the world and more, players can experience great gameplay value at an accessible price point of $40. Fans who pre-order “ReCore” will also receive “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts” for Xbox 360 playable on Xbox One as a pre-order bonus.
