Within the framework of the E3 conference, Microsoft held its own nearly two-hour conference, at which it presented a scattering of video games from both its partners and internal studios acquired over the past year. We saw the new trailers The Outer Worlds, Wasteland 3, Orient the Wisps, Dying Light 2, Elden Ring. And also looked at the new “even more elite controller” for the Xbox and Project Scarlett, which hides a new generation of Xbox.
Future Xbox has not yet received the name and is hidden under the code name Project Scarlett . Developers from Microsoft in a small preview video did not show anything, but promised with three boxes. We hope that by 2020 they will be able to translate all this into a console that will cost adequate money.
The novelty will use a custom processor on Zen 2 and a graphic chip on the Navi architecture. In some games, the frame rate per second was overclocked to 120. At the same time, the console will be able to support 8K resolution (more like processing a video stream of this size) and ray tracing technology. Downloads will be reduced by a new generation SSD-drive. In general, the new product will be four times more powerful than the most powerful console, Xbox One X.
They opened the parade of announcements by The Outer Worlds from Obsidian, which set a release date for October 25. The trailer of the game once again convinces that these particular guys were working on Fallout. You can’t confuse this graphics, camera chatter in the dialogues, and animation with anything.
Gears 5 will be released on September 10, and the first test of the multiplayer mode will take place on July 17. The presentation showed a detached trailer that did not reveal the plot details, as well as a separate video about the cooperative mode Escape.
In the video Halo Infinite showed the revival of Master Chifa, as well as the destroyed ring. The game should be the starting point for the next generation Xbox.
Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls) and George Martin (“A Song of Ice and Flame”) work together on the Elden Ring . The teaser of the game showed at E3, but from it almost nothing is clear. What often happens with the announcements of Miyazaki games. The developers promise that “true fantasy action-RPG” will be the largest in the history of FromSoftware. Martin helped them with the mythology of the world. The game will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Dying Light 2 will be released in the spring of 2020. We will play for Aiden, who is infected with a virus.
Wasteland 3 will come out from under the wing of Microsoft. Not everyone liked the game trailer.
Ninja Theory had previously only been involved in single-player projects, and at the conference, she showed her multiplayer long-term Bleeding Edge – a four-in-4 job, whose alpha test will begin on June 27th.
The release date was acquired by the continuation of Ori Oriental Adventures. Orio the Will of the Wisps will be released February 11, 2020.
In the spring of 2020 will be released Minecraft Dungeons – an adventure with a cooperative of up to four people.
Microsoft Flight Simulator will be available on consoles and PCs. And in the near future, following the example of their other simulation colleagues, will acquire a huge number of DLCs for thousands of dollars.
Age of Empires II Definitive Edition is due out this year.
One of the closest releases is the horror film Blair Witch from the authors of Layers of Fear. As the name implies, the game is based on the movie “Blair Witch.”
Quite intriguing was the announcement of a psychological thriller 12 minutes . So far without a release date, but remember.
At the last E3, we were only casually shown the “battle toads” logo, and at this event they gave us a chance to admire the Battletoads gameplay . To put it mildly, he disappointed.
Not without Star Wars and at the Microsoft conference. This is about Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga , which will be released in 2020.
It should be noted that many of the games submitted by Microsoft from the date of their release will be immediately available to subscribers of the Xbox Game Pass service . Not only for the console, but also for the PC. The first month of subscription can be obtained for $ 1 today, in the future you will have to pay $ 5 to get access to the library of games, which include Imperator Rome, Hollow Knight, Metro Exodus, Football Manager 2019, Forza Horizon 4, Halo Master Chief Collection (with ) and other games.
Microsoft also announced the purchase of Double Fine studio, which will release Psychonauts 2 . As head of the studio Tim Sheyferab said, they will finally be able to realize their wildest ideas without looking back at finances.
A brand new Elite gamepad with a removable battery that provides 40 hours of play will be released on November 4th. The novelty will cost $ 180.
