As previously expected Microsoft’s E3 press briefing wasn’t short on games. In fact, during the 2-hour long show, the company has revealed over 60 titles on the stage alone. You can check them all out by watching the full show.
However, we want to help you to save some time and that is why we’re listing the 5 biggest news announced during the conference.
1. Minecraft Dungeons
Mojang has reimagined Minecraft as a third person, top-down action RPG game with an option to play this game as cooperative multiplayer. It looks like an edgy version of Diablo 3 – damn fun one, to be frank. It will come in Spring, 2020.
2. Cyberpunk 2077
Finally! Cyberpunk 2077 has an official release date which is set for April 16th, 2020. The news was delivered with a new awesome cinematic trailer which you can find below. It also featured an awesome guest appearance. Keanu Reeves will be taking a role in the upcoming game by CD Project Red and will help you to ‘burn the city’. Sounds cool. We’re in!
3. Elden Ring
For quite a while there were rumors flying around – ‘From Software is trying to arrange some sort of collaboration between creators Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin’. Both men need no introduction if you are a fan of Dark Souls & Game of Thrones. Well, the fruit of this collab was announced on E3 stage and it’s a new game called Elden Ring. No release date for the game was given.
4. Gears 5
The fifth instalment into the Gears of War franchize, Gears 5, is not too far away. Xbox has released a new trailer featuring all-new Escape mode for the game and finally set the release date for the game. Gears 5 should be coming to stores this year on September 10th. Additionally, prior to the launch of the game, all pre-orders will get a chance to participate in various multiplayer tests.
5. Project Scarlet
Xbox finally shed some light about their new console which is called Project Scarlet. While we didn’t get to see the design of the console, Xbox boss Phill Spencer was keen on sharing some details. According to him, Project Scarlet will feature way faster load times, will be able to support the 8k resolution and 120 FPS. However, Console is coming by the end of 2020, so all of the power checkmarks might change until then. Oh and we’ve got to see its first launch title – Halo Infinite.
