Xbox E3 keynote reveals Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 4, Cyberpunk 2077, Gears 5 and more
Microsoft kicked off E3 in Los Angeles, showcasing over 50 Xbox games including 18 exclusives and 15 world premieres. We’ve got all the highlights and our favorite trailers down below from today’s event.
Halo Infinite |
The show kicked off with a first look at a new Halo title, called Halo Infinite. It’s been three years since Microsoft released Halo 5: Guardians and a year since Halo Wars 2.
The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite – the next chapter of the legendary franchise. Developed by 343 Industries and created with our new Slipspace Engine. This thrilling engine demo provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions. Get your first look at the legendary hero in the latest Halo entry.
Details are rather thin on Halo Infinite, but you can be certain that Microsoft will share additional info in the coming months.
Bethesda’s main event isn’t until this evening, but it showed a quick glimpse of the gorgeous upcoming Fallout 76. Dubbed its largest Fallout title to date, this one is looking like one of the biggest highlights of E3 to date. Look for Bethesda to share more details this evening. This one is mastered for Xbox One X with full 4K gameplay.
We got another look at Crackdown 3 today, which still doesn’t have an official release date with the last notice being February 2019. But it is available for pre-order and getting another trailer is at least a good start.
The much anticipated Forza Horizon 4 made its first appearance today. We saw a lot of things here in a short amount of time, including what looked like motorcycles and hovercraft. The latest version includes variable seasons and is based in Britain as racers fly up the coast of Scotland.
Forza Horizon 4 continues fan-favorite open-world gameplay along with a new 60fps mode. Back to that variable season mode, Forza is putting heavy focus on how driving changes depending on the weather. Microsoft is also encouraging co-operative online gameplay more than ever before with a new in-game d-pad chat. Forza Horizon arrives on October 4th and will be included with Xbox Game Pass on day one.
Cyberpunk 2077 |
Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most anticipated titles of E3, finally got a nice trailer, unfortunately not much gameplay to speak of. But CD Projekt RED’s new future-RPG is certainly one of the highlights of Microsofts impressive showing this year.
We got a quick look at Kingdom Hearts 3, which is slated for release in late January 2019. This time around combines the worlds of Disney and Final Fantasy with a Frozen twist. Whoa.
Devil May Cry 5 |
It’s been nearly a decade since Devil May Cry 4 hit our consoles. Today at Microsoft’s E3 keynote, we got our first look at the next entry. Check out the full trailer above for more.
Gears 5 |
Finally, we got a quick glimpse at the latest Gears of War entry, Gears 5.
