So, Xbox’s conference has come and gone and there’s a hell of a lot to get through. Microsoft didn’t hold back here, bringing bomb after bomb. It can’t be argued that it was one of Xbox’s best showings ever.
Let’s get right into the key announcements from Xbox’s conference.
Xbox’s conference opened with a bang as they revealed a brand new Halo title. The game is called Halo: Infinite and it’s still developed by 343 Industries and it’s powered by something called the “slipspace engine”.
“Microsoft offered up the world premiere of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the game that has long been anticipated as From Software’s new title. It also comes to us from Activision, who are signed on as publisher.”
“Courtesy of Square Enix and Dontnod comes The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a wonderfully quirky title from the makers of Life is Strange. Even better, the game shares a universe with its predecessor.”
“Square Enix have announced today that the bizarre yet critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 exclusive NieR: Automata will be coming to Xbox One. The game will be known as the Become As Gods Edition and will feature all previously released downloadable content.”
“Crackdown 3 has been plagued by delays since day dot, but fortunately, the game has a release date that it might stick to. Unfortunately for the Xbox hopes, it’s on an already busy release day if you’re an Anthem or Days Gone fan.”
“The trailer confirms several details about the game, including the fact that we’ll visit a Frozen themed world and meet Elsa from the film as well. We also caught a glimpse of the Gummy Ship sections as well as the voice cast speaking in English.”
“Ubisoft have given gamers their first look at The Division 2, which looks to be taking place in Washington DC. At the Xbox Briefing today, the publisher showed off a conceptual trailer setting the scene for the game’s story.”
“It might not be Skate 4, but it’s a start. Made by Crea-ture Studios, a Canadian developer, Session was kickstarted last year and it appears that it’ll be making its way to the Xbox One first, ahead of other platforms.”
“Capcom have finally revealed Devil May Cry V, the long rumoured sequel to Devil May Cry 4. While there was a sort of reboot previously in the series, the franchise has returned to the story of Nero and presumably Dante.”
“If you told me that Tunic debuted last year at E3, I’d call you a damned liar but apparently it’s one that just snuck under the radar. How it did, however, puzzles me as it’s certainly an adorable looking game featuring a wily fox.”
“In a pretty tongue-in-cheek trailer, it was revealed that the three toads would be coming back to Xbox next year with three-player couch co-op, 4K hand-drawn graphics and body-morphing genre mash-ups.”
“Microsoft and Studio MDHR have announced that Cuphead will be getting a downloadable expansion called The Delicious Last Course. In it, Cuphead and Mugman are joined by Ms. Chalice (who is now playable) on a brand new island.”
“They also revealed that you’ll be playing as Kait Diaz, who was a secondary player in the predecessor that featured Marcus Fenix’s son, J.D. It looks as though this sequel will explore who she is as a character, following on from the revelations at the end of Gears 4.”
