Xbox Game Pass Adds Even More Games, Including Fallout

11 June, 2018, 13:41 | Author: Tara Roberts
  • Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference live stream set for 1 pm PDT; Gears of War, Halo 6 and maybe some fighting games en route?

While their conference may not do enough to sway their biggest dissenters, E3 2018 proved that, given time, Microsoft is a company that adapts and thrives from player feedback, harkening back to Sony's E3 2016 with a deluge of new games and trailers.

And yet, in spite of the 50 game trailers shown on-stage at the Microsoft Theater that included a new Halo game and Gears of War 5, there was something desperately missing: any mention of virtual reality. Little else is known about Halo: Infinite at this time, but we will keep you updated as we learned more over the course of this week.

Microsoft bought four gaming studios, including the makers of popular games "Forza" and "Hellblade", in a move to increase emphasis on creating its own games for Xbox.

Although no gameplay footage was shown, it can be considered pretty damn likely that Rash, Pimple and Zitz will return to lay another tongue-lashing down on the Dark Queen.

E3, short for Electronic Entertainment Expo, officially opens Tuesday, but several large game publishers and hardware makers are holding preshow events.

"I know waiting can be hard for folks who are excited for more info about the game". Tell us in the comments section!

They also bought Undead Labs, the developers of the State of Decay series (it's possibly worth noting that State of Decay 2 just hit two million copies sold, which undoubtedly made Microsoft happy).

Other titles unveiled include Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a new franchise from Activision set in feudal Japan; Kingdom Hearts III, marking the series' first appearance on an Xbox console; Devil May Cry 5; and Cyberpunk 2077, a new franchise from the creator of The Witcher games.

"We embarked on a quest to find creative teams that have the mastery of our art", Spencer said. It is coming out in 2019.

In some ways, Microsoft was playing to an easy crowd, with Xbox Fanfest winners in attendance to provide requisity whoops and hollering - and some even twirling shirts in the air at the bigger announcements - but not all games enjoyed a good response.

Also part of Microsoft's plans for gaming is building an industry leading, first party organization.
