Xbox One Machinima app to offer Wingman video help for four games at launch

Last month, the Machinima video game channel on YouTube announced it would have a streaming video app for download for Xbox One users to check out in time for the launch of the console on Nov. 22. One of the app's coolest features is Wingman, which Machinima claims will allow Xbox One owners to watch specially made video hints for games which can be viewed in Snap mode alongside the game itself.

Today, Microsoft announced that the Machinima Wingman feature will support four games for the Xbox One launch: "Ryse: Son of Rome," "Dead Rising 3," "Battlefield 4" and "Call of Duty Ghosts." More Wingman videos for additional Xbox One games will be added to the Machinima app in the coming months.

The app will also support the Xbox One's new media achievements, which will be recorded separately from the console's game-based achievements that are added to a user's Gamerscore. The media achievements that can be unlocked for the Machinima app include one that offers points just by downloading and installing it ("License and Registration"). Achievements can also be unlocked by watching a video on the app ("n00b"), launching the app 10 times in 30 days ("Addict") all the way to a secret achievement that Microsoft says will require users to look back at Machinima's history to discover it.
