Microsoft was second up with their line up of games to come. With some stuff on the side that may entice players to get an Xbox. Check out some big announcements below.
To kick off Microsoft’s E3 conference was the little announcement of Halo Infinite. No other details as of yet but it does look very pretty. Nothing else was shown.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
A sequel to the beautiful indie game Ori and while it doesn’t get me ecstatic, it does look rather pretty and the soundtrack very tranquil.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
This one came as a surprise. FromSoftware showed off the shortest clip a while back and everyone thought it was a new Bloodborne, including myself however it turns out to be a brand new ninja game that looks like a ninja Dark Souls. I’ll take it!
We got our first look and a little bit of info from the next Fallout game and it does amaze me. 4 times the size of Fallout 4 which was already rather big. We also now know it is set in West Virginia. It will also be a prequel to all other Fallout games. More news to be expected in Bethesda’s Conference.
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
Unsure of this one but it’s free and set in the Life is Strange universe. Coming free to download June 26th.
While not a huge fan of Crackdown, they are rather fun and Terry Crews has just made it even better with a new gameplay trailer and will be coming February 2019. Hopefully, no more delays!
We knew it was coming, fancy some fresh footage of the new Metro? Why not. Here. Take this also, coming February 22nd, 2019. Yep, busy day with Days Gone and Anthem coming out the same day!
Kingdom Hearts 3
With the release date finally announced we get to see some fresh footage of Square Enix’s new game featuring a whole lot more of Disney. Not long to wait either!
Forza Horizon 4
I love my driving games. I have a mean driving setup on PC and cannot wait to test out the new Forza game. The game looks beautiful, set in sunny old Britain and will feature 4 seasons which will change the game dramatically. The whole open world with other players online does look chaos, however. Coming October 2nd.
Microsoft getting in on the Indie action with a few company purchases
We see Xbox lead Phil Spencer announce The Initiative, a new Microsoft Studio. Other purchases include Playground Games, Ninja Theory, and Compulsion Games.
The Division 2
We finally get our first look a The Division 2. Now set in D.C Washington with no more snow! Summertime is here and it looks rather pretty. Looks like carnage also. Loved the first one, really looking forward to the sequel. Coming March 15th, 2019.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Not a whole lot of new info, just a new trailer, and a new area. Coming September 14th.
A new skating game! It actually looks really good and wouldn’t mind trying this one out.
Devil May Cry 5
Oh boy, one of my favourite game series is back. I loved the games even the remake they tried to do. We now finally get to see a proper sequel and this time it looks like Nero is taking the lead but this time set in the future. Going to keep a keen eye on this one. Good to see Nero and Dante back!
Cuphead in The Delicious Last Course
A surprise hit that I loved and a friend of mine adored. Will now be getting an expansion and will also be welcoming a new playable character.
I’m a huge anime fan and this one took me by surprise. I’m surprised there were no leaks for this one but the fact I saw a fully animated Goku, Naruto, and Luffy while there was also a quick clip of Death Note in the end. I’m all over this one!
Dying Light 2
After fans crying out for the sequel gameplay footage, we finally get it. I don’t know why but I just couldn’t guess what Xbox was trying to show here until the name appeared, is that bad? I enjoyed the first one and will have to take a look at this one for sure.
Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition
A leak from the other day came true but surprisingly Xbox announced it? Xbox, you trying to get in on the jRPG action?
Sea of Thieves Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores
Yeah, and they aren’t that far away. While Sea of Thieves had a rough start and just isn’t for everyone, I do like a good sesh on their with a couple of mates. We now get new expansions only 2 months from each other. July for Cursed Sails and September for Forsaken Shores.
Yep, you heard it here first, Battletoads is making its return after fan cry out. Coming 2019.
Just Cause 4
Annnnnd after that leak the other day on Steam we finally get a trailer for the new game. I once read a review of Just Cause 3, it went like this “A game like GTA but you play as an Italian Spiderman”. Quite fitting.
Gears of War 5, Gears Pop and Gears Tactics
Yep, I called it here that we will be both seeing a new Halo and Gears and here we are completing exactly what I said. Surprisingly there will be 2 other Gears game. How will those turn out? We will have to see.
Yep, we got Phil Spencer back on stage and he admitted that Microsoft is currently hard at work on the next Xbox. I reckon 2 more years? I’ll save this and rub it in everyone’s faces if true!
Now we knew all about Cyberpunk 2077 being at E3 but my god that trailer looks beautiful. Yep, I’m excited. Ok, Xbox you have me. When’s the release date? Oh? No release date yet? K.
