Are they just re-releasing it? I just don't follow how it has always been free on the Xbox, but it just released an hour ago...

I tried Lies of Astaroth for a couple hours today and it looks kind of similar to Hand of Fate but more streamlined. They still got minor bugs to work out and random things like misspelled achievements to fix but I kind of like it. Ironically, I didn't like Hand of Fate but liked Magic Duels. It's apparently a hit Chinese mobile game that is coming over to Xbox One.

Venturebeat article [venturebeat.com] that interviewed the developers also noted this today:

"It's not a straight port from the mobile game," said Qian Wu, chief executive officer of developer iFreeStudio, in a press release sent to GamesBeat. "Gameplay performance and mechanics have been optimized for the Xbox One console system with a faster stamina-recovery system that allows players to more efficiently farm, collect resources, and negotiate the game's challenging maps."

Lies of Astaroth is celebrating its Xbox One launch by giving select players a free month of Xbox Live Gold, the platform's premium subscription service. You can win that prize by achieving in-game requirements, although we're not sure exactly what those are. Player-vs.-player gameplay will come in a later update.

That is basically what I said. It has been a mobile game for over 3 years. I played it for over a year. It is a freemium game, meaning you will be spending $$$$ if you want to compete for any of the in game rewards. Also, having it on Xbox One really doesn't make sense as it uses a stamina based play that takes time to recover, meaning you will want to have it easily accessible (aka mobile phone).

I really hope the trend of porting free mobile games to Xbox ends soon. Who would buy an Xbox to play crappy phone games anyways? It makes no sense to me.

Its a freebie not a deal. A deal is when you get something cheaper then its suggested price. Getting a free game for free is not a deal.

Slick Deals has a free digital goods forum. That is where threads like this "deal" belong. Next time keep that in mind so we don't report the post so the mods can move it to the proper forum.

These newly released games repeatedly go front page to let people know about them being available. If you have a problem with it, you need to reach out to SD for putting them on front page instead of TCing in the actual threads.

They only go front page when people post in the hot deal forum instead of the freebies forum which isn't fair to those that know how to use a forum. I report and will continue to report these posts on a daily basis because when I search for a free deal me and others expect it to be in the free forums. It's not that complicated...
