E3 2019: Microsoft Xbox roundup

Microsoft wanted to make their presence known at E3 2019, making several big announcements and showcasing their upcoming projects.

Xbox Scarlett

  • Microsoft officially announced the upcoming Xbox console, dubbed “Project Scarlett” at E3, with some seriously impressive specs for a console

Gears of War 5

  • Gears of War 5 was announced, with the burgeoning esport bringing some serious updates to the franchise
  • A new 3v3 co-op mode called ‘Escape’ will be included in Gears 5. It’s its own gamemode that sounds similar to Horde. Should be interesting to see how this ends up.
  • Pre-order bonuses include early access and the ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ character pack, inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest project.

Halo Infinite

  • Halo Infinite is launching alongside the Xbox Scarlett in late 2020
  • A trailer was shown but no multiplayer gameplay was shared
  • Halo Infinite will be cross-platform at launch
  • “This story will mark the beginning of a new chapter and challenge for the [Master] Chief, but it will also respect and continue threads that led to this point. If you’ve never played a Halo game before, this will be a great place to jump into the story… We will weave in context and guideposts to understand your place in a new universe. But if you’ve invested in Halo for all these years, you’ll feel immediately at home – and some of our story moments will spark a different resonance for your investment.”

Elden Ring

  • A new collaboration from FromSoftware and Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, Elden Ring, but not a lot was given away.
  • The trailer was pretty vague, only mentioning a magical Elden Ring that was broken years ago.
  • No release date as of yet

Cyberpunk 2077

  • As expected Cyberpunk stole the show, with Keanu Reeves sharing the game he is set to be featured in.
