All of the footage in the above trailer is, pretty astonishingly, taken straight from the game in action.

Goat Simulator will get physical release

Coffee Stain Studios has revealed that they will be releasing their wild indie hit Goat Simulator in a physical form, complete with an edible* box! Right now, it appears that it will only be available in the UK on May 23rd.

While this isn’t the hardest hitting news to hit your inbox, Facebook or Twitter feed, it is still the silliest. Here is the rundown on what you will receive with the physical copy (per Koch Media)…

“The fully edible* box contains all the point scoring goat destruction, Steam Workshop Support and bugs that are expected of the world’s best-selling goat simulation game.”

There you have it. You can now be a goat.

*Coffee Stain would like to inform you that the box is only edible to goats, and that you are not really a goat.  So please do not eat the box.

2014′s Upcoming Xbox One Games

Sure, streaming, television, and video recording are great features to have in a console platform. They aren’t what gets you to open your wallet and bring home an expensive piece of gaming hardware. We’ve heard your pleas. You want games.

That’s why we’ve put together a quick rundown of the games to look forward to. We'll continue to update this list, and if you see something missing, please let us know. Here is everything we know that's planned for the Xbox One in 2014.

Child of Light – April 30
Ubisoft’s Ubi Art Framework is a flexible engine that has, so far, only given birth to the most recent Rayman titles. Child of Light will take the toolset in another direction with RPG gameplay and a watercolor aesthetic.

Wolfenstein: The New Order – May 20
Machine Games’ take on the classic shooter franchise contains a number of series trademark elements (overcharging health, secret rooms, hidden Nazi gold). Our previews indicate a stronger focus on character and plot, not to mention a cool alternate history setting.

Watch Dogs – May 27
Ubisoft’s delayed open world hacking adventure will finally be released in late May. Has it benefitted from the extra time? We’ll know soon.

Murdered: Soul Suspect – June 3
Airtight Games’ supernatural murder mystery is a more linear affair than what contemporary gamers are used to. However, lots of side content and a compelling story could make this a winner.

EA Sports UFC – June 17
EA’s first MMA title since acquiring the license from THQ in 2012 will be out soon. The publisher has announced that Bruce Lee will be included as a pre-order bonus.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark – June 24
Two different Transformers universes collide as the movie versions of the Autobots and Decepticons encounter their Cybertron series versions. Is this the successor to Fall of Cybertron we’ve been waiting for?

The Elder Scrolls Online – June TBD
Bethesda’s first MMO successfully launched on PC on April. Console fans will get their hands on it this summer.

Super Time Force – June TBD
Capybara’s time-bending, Contra-like shooter is shaping up to be a winner. It’s pretty challenging, but we suspect that will only endear it to players more.

Mario Kart 8 – May 30
We recently got hands-on time with the first HD Mario Kart title, and it’s shaping up nicely. The anti-grav features are used to great effect in new tracks and put a compelling spin on classic courses.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 – June 10
A tie-in game for the upcoming Dreamworks film. 

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark – June 24
Two different Transformers universes collide as the movie versions of the Autobots and Decepticons encounter their Cybertron series versions. Is this the successor to Fall of Cybertron we’ve been waiting for?
