This Week's Xbox News Is Dominated By Forthcoming Games and Updates

You only get new when you take care of the old.


Xbox might not have an exclusive lineup nailed down for 2018 quite yet, but it is focusing on the games. This week's biggest headlines aren't just about what's about to come, but what's already there.

Xbox Live might be getting its own achievement system in a new update making rounds in the Preview program. The OG Xbox controller, known as "The Duke," is dropping in 2018 for Xbox One, and the limited edition Sea of Thieves Xbox One controller not only glows in the dark, but also comes with DLC. If you're a fan of the seven seas, you won't want to miss the Sea of Thieves beta later this month either. Halo 5 is also free to play this weekend, but it's a massive 100GB download.
