The Xbox MMO is called Pax Dei and will be played differently on each platform, says Grubb


Recently, there was talk of a new Xbox MMO under development on the Finnish mainframe team. Initial information was shared by Jez Corden, but now Jeff Grubb has expanded the subject through independent sources. As indicated, the name of the game for now is Pax Dei and among the various ideas there is the possibility to play differently on each platform.

Grubb explains that this Xbox MMO, Pax Dei, is a product based on a cloud, which means players can access it through any device, just like Xbox Cloud Gaming. The studio is looking to create gameplay mechanics that only work with games that exist on a remote server. One of the main ideas is that mechanics would change in complexity depending on the platform.

In other words, while it’s true that you can do everything on any device, some Pax Dei game mechanics would make more sense on certain platforms. For example, if you use your smartphone, you can easily make some agricultural and craft resources. So when you switch to PC and console, it’s easier to manage complex missions like raids. The idea is to encourage players playing differently on all platforms.

The bottom line, though, is that Xbox hopes Pax Dei can demonstrate the value of cloud game development. Development must define the best ways to create these types of games for other developers to do the same. In particular, Xbox hopes to be able to use these lessons with the possible game from Kojima for Xbox: According to Grubb, the deal between Kojima and Microsoft has not yet been closed, but Xbox is organizing the necessary resources to help the Japanese designer. The letter of intent has already been signed and now they are closing the final preparations for this possible Xbox exclusive by Kojima.

Hideo Kojima has been said to work on a known Xbox IP, not a new series. Now let’s stay tuned to find out more about these new games that aren’t from Xbox Game Studios but might be interesting. follow the Windows Club not to have lost anything. What do you think?
