For this year’s press conference, Microsoft is focusing more on just games.
Yes it’s true, they won’t be highlighting other topics but games, we take a look on what they just revealed on their E3 press conference.
To start things up, they first presented Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Microsoft will get the DLCs first before any other platforms. Next to the list was Forza Horizon 2, the game will feature over 200 cars plus dynamic weather and the game will run on 1080p resolution. It will be available on September 30.
Evolve was then presented, the trailer showcased a ton of monsters and guns. Microsoft next feature Assassin’s Creed: Unity from Ubisoft. Unity will offer a 4-player Co-Op, they showed the playable version of the game that featured the co-op function at the press con.
We then see the long trailer of Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition which will be available on October 7. Next was Sunset Overdrive from Insomiac Games, it revolves on the world that turned people into undead mutations after consuming a contaminated energy drink. It showed intense shooting and explosion, it will be available on October 28.
Capcom’s Dead Rising 3 will get a DLC add-on and true to the Capcom tradition, they gave it a long title; Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha will feature 4-player online co-op, tons of power ups and cosplay as one of the famous Capcom characters.
Fable Legends was next on the line, it will be running on Unreal Engine 4. The game will be more on co-op and one of the players can play the role of the villain where he/she can spawn monsters and set traps. The multiplayer beta will be available on Fall. Some new games were also featured such as Project Spark and Ori and the Blind Forest.
343 Industries then revealed a series of Halo announcements; first was Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will feature Halo 1-4 for the Xbox One, Halo 2 will be given an HD makeover, similar to the first Halo game. All the maps from the multiplayer will be available as well. The Master Chief Collection will run on 60 fps.
New horror game Inside was also announced along with a batch of indie games. Next was the announcement of a new Tomb Raider game then a new gameplay footage for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, trailer for Phantom Dust and Tom Clancy’s The Division which featured co-op gameplay, I guess co-op is the keyword for the Microsoft press conference.
Platinum Games’ newest title Scalebound was announced and finally Crackdown.
So far we’ve seen a lot of game announcements which is pretty good as they promised to focused more on game titles for this year. We’ll end this post with a video montage from Microsoft.
