Microsoft just dropped their teaser trailer to the new Xbox hardware codenamed Project Scarlett — it promises to make background loading times to be a thing of the past with its new processor and SSD innovations. Along with the cutting edge console, comes a whole new generation of games for Xbox users.
Microsoft says that there are hundreds of people from 17 studios — both from first-party studios and third-party studios — working on content production for the new Xbox with four generations of games coming. “Better than you’ve seen them before,” said a speaker from Microsoft in their latest video.
Here are some of the Games Microsoft Xbox mentioned during their E3 keynote:
Cyberpunk 2077 is Keanu Reeves — set in the metropolis of the future, where body modification has become an obsession. Users play as an outlaw — an enhanced mercenary working in the sleazy underbelly of the city. In other words, users get to enhance their characters through in-game choices such as swords coming out of your hand, as seen in the video above.
The John Wick star introduced the latest trailer of Cyberpunk 2077 during the E3 conference at Los Angeles including its release date set on April 20 next year.
Gears of War 5 will seemingly focus on Kait Diaz’s character and will give its fanbase a more in-depth look into the world of the Locusts as users explore Kait’s role further and her connection with Swarm.
Moreover, Gears of War 5 will also venture away from the typical big men with big guns storyline (which the game series is mostly popular with) for the first time.
Gears of War 5 will be available for playing this year on September 10th.
343 is saying that Halo Infinite will be the “spiritual reboot of Halo” with more realistic environments and new characters that should be a “perfect starting point for new players.” Halo Infinite will also focus more on the exploration side of the franchise.
For multiplayer gaming, 343 has confirmed a 4-player split screen but pushed back against the idea about a Halo Infinite battle royale feature.
Halo Infinite will also come to Xbox One and PC. “This story will mark the beginning of a new chapter and challenge for the Chief, but it will also respect and continue threads that led to this point,” says Chris Lee, studio head of Halo Infinite. “If you’ve never played a Halo game before, this will be a great place to jump into the story.”
The game will not be released until late next year.
Moon Studios, who created the multi-award winning Ori and the Blind Forest, is finally making a come back with its highly anticipated sequel: Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
Announced during the E3 event two years ago, the beautiful cinematic game will finally arrive next year in February.
Ahead of its Minecraft: Earth application coming with advanced Augmented Reality tech, Microsoft released the latest trailer of its Xbox application for Minecraft called Minecraft Dungeons.
The Minecraft-based dungeon crawler will support local and online co-op play for up to four players and is set to be released Spring of next year. Minecraft Dungeons was initially set for an earlier release date during E3 last year, however, was later on rescheduled for this year’s release.
Similar to the same technology that’s making Minecraft Earth a possibility, Microsoft’s Flight Simulator will also be powered by Azure cloud artificial intelligence.
Moreover, the Flight Simulator is a hyper-detailed game that’s previously only available in PC. Its last installment was the 2014 Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition, a continuation of the 2006 Flight Simulator X. Today, Microsoft’s introducing it to the Xbox through its Xbox Game Pass subscription service.
Bleeding Edge is a first-party Xbox game produced by Technical Alpha. It’s a classic team play game (four players on each side) with the usual assassins, fighters, tankers, etc. However, it has a highly melee-filled character base except for a few long-range heroes.
The goal of the game is to take over three control points situated within the game. Notably, there’s an interesting character balance that should make the game worthwhile, as described by IGN.Bleeding Edge comes out June 27th.
