It looks like Xbox One owners will get an extra game to download and play before the end of the year. Today, Microsoft's Larry Hryb revealed on Twitter that the 2D side-scroller game Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will be released for the console on Friday, December 20th. The game was previously targeted for launch in early 2014.
“Max: The Curse of Brotherhood” is coming to Xbox One tomorrow for US $14.99— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) December 19, 2013
The price for the game in the U.S. will be $14.99, according to Hyrb's tweet. Developed by Copenhagen-based (and Microsoft owned) developer Press Play, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a revamped version of the 2010 released Max and the Magic Marker. The new game has the same basic premise as our hero Max has to rescue his younger brother with the aid of a marker that the player uses to draw solutions to puzzles.
The game will also be released for the Xbox 360 but that won't happen until sometime in early 2014. Microsoft still plans to publish the Xbox One version of the top down shooter Halo Spartan Assault on Tuesday, December 24th, making it the final game for the new console in 2013.
