Everything that happened at Microsoft's surprisingly packed E3 conference


Microsoft kicked off their annual E3 press conference with a bang by revealing a cinematic trailer for 343 Industries' Halo Infinite. If you didn't manage to catch the show, you can catch all of the news right here. Our MR devices work with Steam games now - I love what's happening there - and in the living room there are still, in my opinion, challenges to be solved. The game was previously planned for a release this year.

At its E3 event, Microsoft shined a spotlight on upcoming Xbox One games from third-party publishers.

- "Jump Force" is an all-new game that mashes together several different popular anime into a single game, including characters from "Dragonball Z" and "Naruto". They also revealed they were doubling its game development studios by adding five new creative teams to the Microsoft Studios family. That's pretty much the extent of what was explicitly mentioned in the trailer, although, given the appearance of a hoverbike halfway through, one might wonder if they will show up in the final game.

Forza Horizon 4 has been officially announced by Microsoft Studios, ahead of the title's official release on 2nd October 2018.

The developer mentioned that the game is still a long way out, but it wanted to share the progress and showcase the new technology and art style. "This is why we're amplifying our investment in worlds that will deepen your love of Xbox".

VisitScotland said at the time that the move would boost tourism to Skye, and was the first time a video game "world" had been twinned with a real place. That's especially true given the company's recent focus on the cloud and the abandonment of the phone hardware market. It will also be available on the day of release to Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
