Here are ten games that were presented at Microsoft’s big Xbox Series X gaming event
Halo Infinite is the latest game in the Halo series and is being developed by the studio 343 Industries. During the big Xbox event, a video clip (lasting several minutes) from well into the story of the game was presented. You again take on the role of Master Chief, but the new game picks up long after where Halo 5: Guardians left off. Halo Infinite offers new areas to visit, more characters with whom to interact and several new game mechanics (such as a grappling hook).
At long last, a new game in the Fable series has been unveiled. Ever since the first three games – released in 2004, 2008 and 2010 respectively – fans have been craving a new chapter in the series. We don't know much about the new Fable. All we know is that the game development studio Playground Games is developing the game – and that for health reasons, fairies should avoid frogs at all costs. If you haven't yet played Fable I, II, and III, they're available on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
If you love motor racing, the upcoming Forza Motorsport for the Xbox Series X might be just the ticket. The new racing game features 4K resolution with 60 fps, and supports ray tracing on the new gaming console. The game is still in an early stage of development, so we don’t know many details about it yet. What we do know, however, is that a comparison between the new Forza Motorsport on the Xbox Series X and Gran Turismo 7 on the PlayStation 5 is said to be really exciting.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light
If you like gaming, you've probably come across Destiny 2 at some point. Developed by the Bungie studio, the game was released in 2017 and has received several major add-on packages in the last three years. And with the presentation of Beyond Light, we have another one to look forward to. In Beyond Light we get new subclasses, more areas to visit and new elements to use. In conjunction with the unveiling of Beyond Light, it was revealed that Destiny 2 is being optimised for the Xbox Series X, with 4K resolution at 60 fps.
Tetris Effect: Connected
Tetris Effect is getting an add-on package called Connected. This free update is available to anyone who already owns Tetris Effect, and makes it possible to play with other people in a multiplayer mode – both over the internet and locally on a computer or gaming console. The add-on package will be released in the summer of 2021 on all platforms where Tetris Effect is available to play, even for players who use a VR headset.
Avowed is a new fantasy RPG game set in the same world and location as the previously released Pillars of Eternity. The game is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, a studio known for heavy game titles such as Fallout: New Vegas and The Outer Worlds. The trailer for Avowed doesn't reveal much about the game mechanics, and its launch date has yet to be revealed. But judging by the trailer, you can count on both magic and sword fighting – so it looks very promising.
The game developer Double Fine is working on a successor to 2005's Psychonauts. Like its predecessor, the new game is a 3D platform game and will be available for both gaming consoles and PCs. Double Fine is already known for games such as 2009’s Brütal Legend, and more recently for the Remaster versions of Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle.
Tell Me Why
Tell Me Why is a multi-part series being developed by Dontnod Entertainment. It's a story-driven adventure about the siblings Tyler and Alyson Ronan. The game unfolds in a small town in Alaska, where your actions guide the story forward. On August 27, 2020, the first instalment of the series will be released for PCs and gaming consoles.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is a direct follow-up to 2007’s S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl. Like its predecessor, the new game is an FPS title. The story takes place in an alternative Chernobyl. The player is free to explore this world, and there are several different endings that can be experienced in various ways, depending on a variety of choices made during the game. S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 will be released for PCs and the Xbox Series X. The release date has yet to be announced.
The Medium is a psychological horror game set in both the physical world and a parallel spirit world. In The Medium, you can experience both of these worlds at the same time as you explore secrets, solve difficult puzzles and avoid a monster called The Maw, which is perpetually on your tail. The unique style of play is combined with a spooky soundtrack. Together they promise a completely new, exciting experience for both PC and Xbox. The game will be launched in the latter part of 2020.
