Introducing the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition for Forza Motorsport 7

Forza Motorsport 7 fans, get ready to experience a new level of power and performance with the launch of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition which is a free gift for all players. The specially designed F-150 joins the lineup of more than 700 cars in the game which showcases 60 frames per second racing on all Xbox One platforms and native 4K support on Xbox One X. With a custom livery based on Xbox One X’s codename “Project Scorpio” and numerous performance-minded upgrades, this Raptor is ready to intimidate all opponents in Forza Motorsport 7.
While the truck is significantly taller than stock – over 93 inches tall (2.3 meters) on 38 inch BF Goodrich Krawler T/A tires – the team behind the Xbox One X Raptor still wanted it to retain the race truck’s Baja-tested performance characteristics. The Raptor’s livery was designed by illustrator Hydro74 and features a stylized “Project Scorpio” scorpion motif. Look closely and you can see that the scorpion’s body includes many details from Xbox One X, including the thumb sticks, d-pad, and ABXY buttons.
Starting today, Forza Motorsport 7 owners can download the free Xbox One X Raptor from their Forza Motorsport 7 Message Center, as well as download a Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition Windows 10 Theme set in the Microsoft Store. In addition, we’ve got a new Rivals event available today in the Featured Event channel, starring the Raptor. Look for the “Delivering the Sting” event and set your best time on the leaderboard. Can you tame the power of the Xbox One X Raptor? Read more over at Xbox Wire!

Samsung announces new Notebook 9 and Notebook 9 Pen with Windows 10
This week, Samsung announced the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and three new versions of the Samsung Notebook 9 (2018), offering a mobile computing experience that matches how people are using their PCs: whether at work, on the go and everything in between.

Samsung Notebook 9 Pen: Superb flexibility, portability with S Pen and convertible hinge
The Notebook 9 Pen brings a thoughtfully refined design to the 2-in-1 PC. Its full metal chassis with a premium magnesium aluminum alloy called Metal12 provides durability while keeping it super light at 2.2 pounds. The 360-degree hinge provides flexibility to convert to a tablet from a laptop with ease by rotating the keyboard behind the screen for convenience. The Notebook 9 Pen has a built-in, refined S Pen that gives you the freedom to doodle, write, sketch, paint and more with Windows Ink. The S Pen is battery-free, built into the device and designed for immediate use.
Samsung Notebook 9 (2018): Powerful design, yet lightweight and thin
With three different versions offering a 13.3” to a 15” screen and enhanced graphics capabilities, the Notebook 9 (2018) weighs up to only 2.84 pounds and measures 15.4mm. The bezel around the screen measures 6.2mm providing a more immersive experience. This means great portability without sacrificing screen size, as well as a stronger, more durable metal body featuring Metal12. The device also provides always-on power thanks to the 75Wh Hexacell battery.
Availability: The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) will be available in select countries starting in December 2017 in Korea, and in the first quarter of 2018 in the U.S. Both the Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) will be displayed at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, NV.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now available on Xbox One

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now as a console launch exclusive on Xbox One! Since we first announced PUBG would be coming to Xbox at E3 2017, it’s been amazing to see the excitement and anticipation fans have shared and on behalf of everyone at PUBG Corp., we want to thank you for your support.
PUBG is a battle royale-style game which puts up to 100 players on the remote island of Erangel for a winner-takes-all showdown. Each game starts the same – you jump out of an airplane over an island, look for a safe (or dangerous) place to land, scramble for armor, weapons and health kits, and try to stay alive as the safe zone becomes smaller and smaller, forcing players to keep moving to survive.
We chose to bring PUBG to console on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program, as it’s the only console platform that gives us the opportunity to partner with the community and build the game together, much like we did with the PC version. The experience you have in PUBG on Xbox One today will be somewhat similar to what we shipped back in March on PC, but with a few updates. In addition, to support for third-person solo, duo, and squad gameplay on the current Erangel map, PUBG on Xbox One will also feature vaulting at its launch into the Xbox Game Preview program. On Xbox One X, the game will be enhanced to include HDR support and 4K resolution, with more details to come.  While in the Xbox Game Preview program, PUBG on Xbox One will continue to receive new content updates including the new desert map, “Miramar,” optimizations and more. Our goal is to unify the feature set and product roadmap of the PC and Xbox versions of the game as soon as possible.
