Xbox Showcase Overview

A quick overview of the Xbox Showcase. #Xbox #Microsoft

FABLE! After so many rumours and leaks over the last few years, Microsoft finally officially revealed Fable! We don’t know much other than a few leaks and the new cinematic trailer, but the cat is finally out of the bag! It was a good end to a good show.

Microsoft flexed its muscles with their first-party games that will all come to their Gamepass service on launch. It is a good time to be an Xbox fan. This article will be a brief overview of everything.

Some games had in-depth segments while others just teased us like carrots on sticks. Either way, it was exciting!

Fable Returns

When the show ended, the team revealed they had one last thing to show off before closing and then the trailer started. As soon as I saw the Playground Games title on the screen, I knew what I was looking at.

The rumours that Playground Games (known for their Forza Horizon games) are tackling the beloved Fable series panned out. It will be interesting to see how a developer who is used to doing open-world racing games handles an open-world role-playing game. The trailer still has that tongue-in-cheek Fable humour that we all know and love. So, I’m pretty excited about this.

Forza Motorsport

As expected, Forza Motorsport was teased. The next title seems to be showing off the next-gen Xbox’s power and it was no surprise that a new instalment of the staple racing sim was teased.

Halo Infinite

We got a big look at Halo Infinite. The show started with gameplay. The game’s scope looks massive and although I’m not a diehard fan of the franchise, I couldn’t help but appreciate the gameplay they showed. It did look fun.

For fans of the franchise, they were treated to the gameplay from the get-go. The rest of the event was just icing on the cake.

Obsidian Games had their own little segment where they showed off their soon to be released Grounded, a new game called Avowed, and some much-appreciated DLC for Outer Worlds.

There were a ton of reveals and surprises, which I will dissect in upcoming articles. But the event was a strong one in my opinion. Xbox has a strong line up of AAA games as well as indie games. With the addition of Gamepass, there really is no denying that Xbox is killing it. So, here’s to the next-gen!
