E3 2018: All The Xbox One Games From Microsoft's Press Conference
Created by Matt Espineli on
The gaming industry's biggest event of the year, E3 2018, just had a huge second day. Microsoft started things off with a bang. The company’s press conference featured everything from a Forza sequel to a new map for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and we finally got a deeper look at Gears 5, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice--the next game From Software is working on.
There were over a dozen games on display, with more than a few surprises for news as well. We learned that Xbox acquired five new studios, and each one is hard at work developing exclusive titles to the Xbox One console. Plus, Xbox’s older titles are getting a fresh coat of paint in the form of expansions and updates. Even indie games like Cuphead are getting new DLC.
We were also given quite a few great announcements for anime fans, from the arena brawler of Shonen Jump characters in Jump Force to the remaster of Tales of Vesperia. Not one to let all those 2017 PS4 exclusives pass them by, Microsoft even announced that Nier would be coming to Xbox One later this year.
The show wrapped with an incredible showcasing of Cyberpunk 2077. No release date or gameplay footage yet, but we’re excited to see what’s next for the team behind The Witcher III Wild Hunt.
