E3 2018: Xbox briefing roundup

E3 News tixfeatures

Now the dust has settled on the Xbox Briefing at E3 lets try and catch you up on what went down.

Halo

That’s right, the show kicked off with announcement for Halo Infinite.

Battlefield V

As promised at EA Play, a cinematic story trailer was released for Battlefield V War Stories.

Fallout 76 & Xbox Games Pass

We found out a little bit more about Fallout 76 and that the game takes place before the events of the previous Fallout games, and sees the protagonist leaving Vault 76 and being charged to rebuild. Fallout 4 was also released on Xbox Games Pass.

Crackdown 3

We got another Crackdown 3 trailer last night, and a release date for the game. February 22 2019. Lets hope that’s the last of the delays.

Forza Horizon 4

Turn 10 showed up to show off Forza Horizon 4, with Dynamic Weather, a 60fps mode and this time its set in Britain.

Microsoft buys the Internet, sort of

Microsoft have blown us all away with the announcement of five new studios to the fold of Microsoft Studios. The Initiative is the new studio formed in Santa Monica, California. Playground Games is the UK studio responsible for the Forza Horizon series of racers, including the new UK based Forza Horizon 4. Undead Labs are the brains behind the recent zombie survival game State Of Decay 2.

Probably the biggest coup is the purchase of Ninja Theory, who were the masterminds behind the recent Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, one of the best games of the last few years.

Gears is back

That’s right, Gears 5 was announced and is set to be released at some point next year.
