During its E3 conference, Microsoft placed its emphasis on its numerous Xbox One games that are due to be released this year. They kicked off with a new and highly anticipated trailer of Halo 5: Guardians. This was followed by a load of other new and exciting game announcements, and also some unexpected (but good) Xbox One service announcements (including the announcement of a new and [very awesome] controller!). If you missed the conference because you were too busy – never fear because below is a summary of everything that was announced at the Microsoft E3 conference this year:
Microsoft revealed some more details about the Halo 5: Guardians campaign, including information about Spartan Locke’s mission to hunt down Master Chief. Warzone, Halo 5’s multiplayer mode that combines AI and real players, was also revealed.
ReCore, made by the creators of Metroid and Mega Man, features a woman and her robot dog fighting against enemies in what seemed to be a desert terrain. The trailer reveals that the game is due to be released in spring 2016.
Bethesda’s E3 conference saw the first details of Fallout 4 announced, but Bethesda saved some news for the Microsoft conference, including cross-mod support between PC and Xbox One versions of Fallout 4. Also, Fallout 3 will be included free with the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 (yay!).
