XO18 Inside Xbox special live report

Acquisitions! Expansions! Some weird bit about Winnie the Pooh! All the news as it happened. 

Well, that was something! Microsoft carried its powerful march towards the new generation with a good showing at XO18, with news of new studio acquisitions while it shored up the already impressive Game Pass for Xbox and plenty more besides. Here's everything as it happened.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

20:10

Hi, hello and how do you do.

20:10

spamdangled says:

So, is it 8pm or 9pm? We've recently switched to daylight savings, so we are on BST, not GMT, which would place the start as 8pm. the article is a little confusing.

We're on GMT!

20:10

So the event doesn't start for another 50 minutes. I hope.

20:11

I just wanted to check in and say I'm alive, not that drunk *yet* and that, all going well, we'll be kicking off in under an hour.

20:12

Kami says:

And good evening to you Martin!

*waves*

20:14

Malek86 says:

If JSRF is not announced, can I trust Martin to boo at the stage?

I'm in Lewisham for this and quite far from Mexico, but I can boo pretty loud so I'll do what I can.

20:31

Jac says:

Is this event likely to be interesting? Never heard of it before and what does XO stand for? X Ox? Kiss off?

It's Kiss Off 2018. All the execs, snogging each other into oblivion, live for our entertainment for two hours. It's going to be mint.

20:36

_TheDarkSide_ says:

@Oridan lol.Exactly what I thought. Cheeky sods, insinuating we've got no lives..... /Sobs into pillow.

I was mostly talking about myself. My mum's down for the weekend and I'm using it as an excuse to head out to the office for a couple of hours.

20:50

Bionicjackass says:

Is there a drinking game set up for tonight? Eg: a shot every time someone mentions “worlds most powerful console”

I'm playing! I haven't thought of many rules beyond 'drink this bottle of cheap red until it's finished' but it should be fun!

20:51

Just under ten minutes to go.

20:51

Charge your glasses.

20:52

What to expect, then?

20:52

Not much, to be blunt - this isn't going to be like an E3 conference - but still I'm expecting more than what we got the last time I tuned in for one of these Inside Xbox specials for that dreadful Gamescom episode.

20:53

So some updates on existing games, a light sprinkling of news and a lot of Major Nelson doing what he does, whatever that is.

20:54

And Jet Set Radio Future to back-compat, of course.

20:54

(I think because music licensing issues that's never going to happen, sadly. Also as much as I love that game it looks too much like a ketamine hangover with its weird on-brand green palette).

20:55

Oridan says:

Diablo 4 is gonna get announced here, I'm sure of it.

Why not!

20:56

This pre-show tune's a banger, mind.

20:56

Where *do* they find such outstanding music?

20:56

It actually sounds like something I made on Codemasters' Music 2000.

20:57

I'm honestly excited for what the next two hours will bring, however mild it may be.

20:58

Absolutely love what Microsoft is doing at the moment, and they've managed to turn me mid-gen - the Xbox One X is now my console of choice in my living room.

20:59

Oooooh less than a minute to go. Hold on to your butts.

20:59

rep- says:

Is Phil Spencer at this event? To drop some news.

He is!

20:59

Going to be sporting a Blinx the Cat t-shirt, I'm sure.

21:00

And

21:00

Here

21:00

We

21:00

Go

21:01

Some lifestyle ad about Xbox's current proposition - whenever I see someone flying through the air in an Xbox ad I can't help but think of that unfortunate OG Xbox ad.

21:01

What on earth is that crowd on?

21:02

And also that is a very unlikely gathering that's hosting this.

21:02

Young, excitable presenters - and Major Nelson in a velvet blazer.

21:03

I'd be snarky, but in life, wherever I go, I am forever Major Nelson in a velvet blazer.

21:04

Lonewolf2002 says:

"What on earth is that crowd on?"I want some whatever it is.

It's definitely got more pep than this *checks label* Hardy's Nottage Hill my mum bought me.

21:04

And we're straight into PUBG, which is hitting Games Pass on Monday.

21:04

That's a grand way to kick things off. Games Pass really is an incredible thing.

21:05

There's a new trial for Xbox Games Pass - one month for a dollar.

21:05

rep- says:

Say what you will, but this has a bit more life than the last PSX "conference".

That it does!

21:05

It also has something of a home shopping channel vibe to it too.

21:06

Which I'm also well into.

21:06

Live graffiti in the background - so it basically feels like Nathan Barley fronts QVC.

21:06

Void Bastards is an all-new game, which - I'm showing my age here - looks a lot like XIII.

21:07

(Look, it's a first-person shooter that's cel-shaded and my points of reference only extend to games that came out at the turn of the century).

21:08

Another Games Pass game, by the looks of it.

21:09

And oh look it's Terry Crews.

21:09

So we've got some Crackdown imminent.

21:09

Good lord the pacing of this is breakneck - nicely played Microsoft.

21:10

And yes they're surely rushing through all this in order to spend the last hour on Jet Set Radio Future.

21:10

Hopefully Major Nelson will take a big fat line of ket before embarking on a Let's Play.

21:10

Oh, and while I was typing that nonsense, Crackdown 3 has a release date.

21:11

(And that date is February 15th, when it'll be hitting Games Pass as well).

21:12

This is our first look at Crackdown 3's multiplayer, aka Dave Jones why did you sell us up shit's creek and leave us to actually make that demo into a real game.

21:13

Worth noting that this is a completely separate game from Sumo Digital's single-player campaign - at least as far as I'm aware.

21:13

(which is not that far, really)

21:14

There's something almost warmingly nostalgic about hearing the term 'cloud' being used in an Xbox briefing again.

21:15

It's like it's 2013 all over again. It's like the world didn't go to shit and all anyone was angry about was the idea of an always online console.

21:15

And the original Crackdown - which remains an *incredible* game - is now available for free.

21:16

Here's an American sport.

21:18

Big Phil Spencer is now being cheered on by the baying crowd.

21:19

Unfortunately I can't make out that his t-shirt is referring to any game in particular.

21:19

Although, if you stare at it long enough and let your eyes lose focus.

21:19

Is that a 'J'?

21:19

An 'S'?

21:19

An 'R' and an 'F'? Could it be?

21:20

Innit says:

Ah, we get casual Phil tonight

Every night it's casual Phil. Every day it's casual Phil. I'm pretty sure he's so casual he just has a deckchair in his office.

21:21

Oh he's talking about Windows now.

21:22

So now I'm getting a QVC meets Top Gear vibe.

21:22

Which still is a much more appetising formula than The Grand Tour.

21:23

Issy543 says:

Old or new top gear?

Old new. Not old old. Though Major Nelson may well be Xbox's Quentin Wilson.

21:24

God I realise there's not many of you old enough to know who Quentin Wilson is. Basically he's an old TV presenter who looks like a human lightbulb.

21:25

I digress! Hellblade is coming to Games Pass, which is great as I've been waiting for an excuse to check it out.

21:25

And that'll be on December 17th. Cracking way to get into the Christmas spirit, that.

21:26

Oh no. It's Kingdom Hearts 3.

21:26

rep- says:

I don't get Kingdom Hearts.

It's okay, neither do I.

21:28

Sweet, it's an appearance from Square's Hashimoto. Are they going to cancel something else live?

21:29

makeamazing says:

Bet KH3 is now cancelled Martin.

And Nomura is being sacked live on-stage.

21:30

People are cheering puzzle mini-games being included in the Winnie the Pooh section of the new Kingdom Hearts and this is all so nutty I think my heart could burst.

21:30

Oridan says:

The Quiet Man for Smash

YES! The campaign starts here.

21:32

And now Shinji Hashimoto is bringing out the well-worn tale of how Kingdom Hearts came to be.

21:32

Kami says:

Yes, I just dropped The Bouncer into this discussion. *folds arms*

*salutes*

21:32

And finally...

21:33

heaterhands says:

I'm cooking my dinner, with the audio for this on my headphones; the crowd's enthusiasm is a bit easier for my easily embarrassed heart to handle if I don't have to see the crowd going nuts

They're mostly nude now. Sorry, hope I haven't put you off whatever you're cooking.

21:35

Final Fantasy 13 trilogy is coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility next week.

21:35

Would you judge me if I told you...

21:35

That I quite like Final Fantasy 13. Yes, the first one.

21:35

It's *mostly* terrible. But that battle music! That battle system!

21:36

Innit says:

You make me sick, Martin.

21:36

I make myself sick. Imagine *being* me.

21:37

This velvet blazer really is something.

21:37

You can feel the static fizzing from it.

21:38

Good lord this crowd is actually too much.

21:38

Anyway here are some pirates.

21:40

Also isn't saying Sea of Thieves is their best-selling new IP this gen just another way of saying 'well, it did better than Recore'?

21:41

This is the announcement of a new mode, a fast-paced PvP addition called The Arena.

21:44

So that was that, and here is some anime.

21:45

mcmahonman says:

Jump force, a game that should have the best art style yet doesn’t.

21:45

It's hard to get excited about something like this in the wake of Dragon Ball Fighterz, isn't it?

21:45

rep- says:

I also don't get Jump Force.

21:46

Neither do I. But as I get older I realise I don't get a lot of things.

21:46

richarddavies says:

The fact they need to spend this long on sea of thieves for filler makes me a bit sad for Microsoft. Also on an unrelated note Martin mentioned before, I would have a much more positive take on this if Phil Spencer came on stage topless, sweating profusely and blatantly ketted up off his bonce screaming like a banshee.

21:46

We've still got an hour to go. Also, how else are you going to announce Jet Set Radio Future coming to back compat?

21:49

They just gave a kid an Xbox One X in the crowd and he honestly looked like he just wanted to cry. More nervous tears than anything.

21:50

A quick sizzle reel for Xbox One X - the world's most powerful console, don't you know - only really serves to remind me that Gears 5 got announced and I managed to completely forget about it. I guess Gears of War 4 was really that bland.

21:50

rep- says:

The X is a fantastic console.

It really is!

21:52

Z Hunter is a new add-on for State of Decay 2, it is my duty to record in this live report.

21:52

Malek86 says:

So, is SOD2 still Avoid-worthy? Or did they fix it?

None of us have really been back to it for a while, but this looks like a good excuse to.

21:53

(After we've all played 428 Shibuya Scramble, of course).

21:54

Oh lord. They're still chanting every single game's name.

21:54

(and this time the crowd is chanting Just Cause 4, which is getting a new trailer right about now).

21:55

It's got weather in it!

21:56

Seeing as it's started to piss it down here in Lewisham, I'm out in my shed and I forgot to bring my shoes with me so will get my feet soaked after this, weather can go do one frankly.

21:56

Innit says:

They're idiots. They should be chanting "JSRF"

Soon.

21:56

I'm still not over Major Nelson's jacket.

21:58

rep- says:

Why are you in your shed?

21:58

The real question right now is, why aren't you?

21:59

Dash_RipRock says:

All pre rendered tat as usual....at least rico looks less like nick knowles this time :)

21:59

Now you've pointed out the Nick Knowles lookalike I need to play this. I had an unfortunate addiction to 5's Company in the late 90s.

22:00

Major Nelson showing he's down with the kids by dropping a Wizard of Oz reference.

22:02

A quick shout-out to friend of Eurogamer, all-round lovely man and Edge editor Nathan Brown, who has like the rest of us made a series of unfortunate life decisions that means he is watching this live at home. Hello Nathan!

22:03

makeamazing says:

Wouldn't it be better to watch from home, than be in that crowd Martin, at least you can mute it.

You make a very good point.

22:03

And also a lovely charity drive from Xbox, who are putting their weight behind the splendid Special Effect.

22:05

The weird baying crowd aside, this has been a great show from Microsoft so far.

22:06

A quick succession of small but pleasant announcements. And also, in that Kingdom Hearts section, the kind of press conference awkwardness and weirdness that I live for.

22:07

A little bit more Devil May Cry 5 is up next, which can only be a good thing. Gawd bless you, Itsuno.

22:08

Oh wait it's a weird travelogue that looks like it's escaped from a mid-90s Channel 4 TV show.

22:09

'Gaming in Japan with Katie Puckrik'.

22:09

Actually I'd watch that.

22:10

makeamazing says:

So we're just waiting Obsidian and Armature studio purchases, anything else we can expect?

Jet Set Radio Future back compat is nailed-on by this point.

22:10

Kami says:

Jesus, that's a mouth I've only ever seen in Dark Souls characters!

22:10

You're not talking about Katie Puckrik are you?

22:11

I've been reading the Wikipedia entry for The Word rather than paying attention to this (quite awesome looking) reveal of Devil May Cry 5 gameplay.

22:12

There are probably more noble ways to lose your job, by hey-ho.

22:12

Kami says:

No, we're talking about this Rylan bloke who I've only just somehow found out about.

Ah, ok! I will try and avoid that particular hole.

22:13

(I just googled Rylan, thanks for that horrendous image).

22:13

MINECRAFT THO.

22:14

Centrale1 says:

Is JSRF actually happening or is Martin just (cruelly) joking about that?

It'll only happen if we all believe.

22:15

makeamazing says:

When is this finishing... I need coffee or something stronger.

We've another 45 minutes to go, by my clock.

22:16

A cute little moment where some of the Minecraft creators who've forged careers out of their work. Although it's sapping a little of the momentum of this show.

22:17

(Though this Merlot that's rapidly disappearing is also guilty of that).

22:18

Oridan says:

So did they announce Diablo 4 yet or what

Yeah that was at the beginning. It's a Vita exclusive. Looks good!

22:19

And a lovely, no doubt appallingly expensive ad for cats and pandas in Minecraft.

22:23

Some more Game Pass announcements - Pathlogic 2, Secret Neighbour (which is related to Hello Neighbour) and The Good Life (Swery's game, no Richard Briers unfortunately).

22:24

This'll be our first look at DLC for the new Tomb Raider - which somehow already feels like it's ancient.

22:24

makeamazing says:

Damn it, would have like a Good Life game, looking after a chicken and going round the neighbours for a glass of wine.

22:25

Like Stardew Valley but with Felicity Kendal? That'd be ace.

22:25

Kami says:

Actually I'd play that, is Penelope Keith still alive?

She is. And she's starring in Jet Set Radio Future 2.

22:26

Keyboard and mouse support coming next week to Xbox One.

22:28

Razer is your official partner when it comes to mice and keyboard for Xbox One.

22:29

And Razer's boss, Min, is a wonderfully stern counter to your 'ya booiii' types. Good work.

22:29

I felt like I was being told off during that Razer announcement.

22:31

Chris Charla is here for the next segment, doing his very best not to announce a release date for Below.

22:32

Here are some other games that aren't Below, though, like After Party.

22:32

And Sable, which is also not Below but looks incredible regardless, a Moebius-inspired adventure.

22:33

And Ooblets, which is also not Below, but does also look absolutely splendid and that pretty much everyone here at Eurogamer can't wait to play.

22:33

When is Below coming out though?

22:34

Finally, it's not Below, but Tunic - the beautiful action RPG from a single developer.

22:35

And we're getting Winter of Arcade, a spin on the old Summer of Arcade that was a mainstay of Xbox Live Arcade.

22:35

They're not telling us if Below is one of those games.

22:36

Forza Horizon 4 news!

22:36

It's an expansion featuring a whole new area - complete with lots of extreme terrain.

22:36

(and it's called Fortune Island)

22:37

It looks like Forza Horizon goes Skyrim.

22:37

Which I think I can get behind.

22:38

And we're also getting some Ken Block-themed vehicles - and hopefully some Ken Block-themed challenges we can apply them to?

22:39

mcmahonman says:

Gav Murphy is going to pissed at still no Wales in Forza

Gav Murphy is just pissed right now. (I love you Gav).

22:39

Oooh there's only 20 minutes to go.

22:39

I think I've quite enjoyed this?

22:39

Mostly because of the lovely company I've been keeping, of course.

22:41

Games_Should_Be_Fun says:

Are they rhetorical questions, Martin?

22:41

Is there any other type of question?

22:43

Right, on to a skit with not one but two Major Nelsons.

22:43

And he's living his best life by going full QVC.

22:44

Well, this is something.

22:44

Well, that was something.

22:45

It's what you've been looking forward to. ACQUISITIONS!

22:46

Is Jet Set Radio Future now considered a studio rather than a mere game?

22:46

Innit says:

With a name like that he must have a lovely arse

Naturally.

22:47

lostmuppet says:

Who?????

BOOTY.

22:47

InXile is the first acquisition.

22:48

And... Obsidian!

22:48

Which we kind of all knew about, but hey - what a catch!

22:49

Video games are so, so strange. Can you imagine acquisitions being paraded around in front of fans like this anywhere else?

22:56

But hey it's video games' strangeness that's why I love them so.

22:51

That and really awkward moments where some guy tries to talk about putting puzzles into a Winnie the Pooh level while a crowd screams hysterically.

22:51

And that's Microsoft's XO18 show.

22:51

One last thing though!

22:52

(From offstage, music starts playing)

22:52

*Understand, understand, the concept of love*

22:52

Major Nelson emerges, on skates.

22:53

And, judging by his slightly wonky gait, he's also on a mountain of ket.

22:53

It's happening everyone.

22:53

JET SET RADIO FUTURE IS NOW AVAILABLE IN 4K ON BACK COMPAT.

22:54

Sorry, I nodded off at the end there. Did I miss anything?

22:54

That was a delight. Let's do this again next Saturday night everyone?

22:55

heaterhands says:

Martin, I'm sorry to say, it's time to get your feet wet

22:56

Good night, and thanks for joining us!

    @MrTomFTW I got the stream on a different tab for the freebies. Doesn't mean I'm actually watching it on that, of course

    MrTom - yup it is chaos.

    Is Phil Spencer at this event? To drop some news.

    Anyone watching on Mixer? Their new chat system is a fucking hellscape

    Will Major Nelson be wearing a blazer. That is what I am excited to find out.

    Diablo 4 is gonna get announced here, I'm sure of it.

    The cloud, I expect the cloud.
    Malek86 3 years ago
    What to expect? Oh, you mean aside from JSRF. Well, I don't know for sure.
    Bionicjackass 3 years ago
    Good point @Kami maybe need to go for something a bit less risky. How about Console Exclusive? 😂
    Kami 3 years ago
    @Bionicjackass - that's asking for alcohol poisoning.

    Is there a drinking game set up for tonight? Eg: a shot every time someone mentions “worlds most powerful console”

    Ah, well explained, Martin. I was beginning to suspect that you guys were psychic....... Or spying through our web-cams!!! ;-)

    Until I move, I really don't have much of a life. Finding a nice wheelchair-accessible place in Newquay turns out to be very hard.
    _TheDarkSide_ 3 years ago
    @Oridan lol.Exactly what I thought. Cheeky sods, insinuating we've got no lives..... /Sobs into pillow.
    Kami 3 years ago
    ... and ITV just commissioned that as a series, thanks Martin! XD

    "Join us from 9pm GMT, because you really haven't got anything better to do." Oh, you know me so well.

    Is this event likely to be interesting? Never heard of it before and what does XO stand for? X Ox? Kiss off?

    PSA: while waiting for the show, you could start 428. Just a thought.Well, I've done my part today, so I'm out of here for a while.
    Malek86 3 years ago
    If JSRF is not announced, can I trust Martin to boo at the stage?
    Kami 3 years ago
    And good evening to you Martin!
    Kami 3 years ago
    Unless something has gone terribly wrong and Phil Spencer is on stage talking to himself.
    Kami 3 years ago
    Welp, nothing on the feed for me so I'm guessing 9pm?
    spamdangled 3 years ago
    So, is it 8pm or 9pm? We've recently switched to daylight savings, so we are on BST, not GMT, which would place the start as 8pm. the article is a little confusing.
    BiTheWay 3 years ago
    Not at all likely, but possible I guess: a hardware reveal, a big third party reveal, news on Halo: Infant, or Red Dead Online 2 news.
    Kami 3 years ago
    Three things will guarantee me piling into a new XBox - Fable, Alan Wake and possibly maybe something in the vein of Lost Odyssey. I'm easy to please, lol.
    Kami 3 years ago
    @oooombasa & @rep-: Yeah. I am aware that the next Fable is more likely for the NextBox (or Scarlett, is that what people are calling it?). I'd certainly like a teaser though.
    Malek86 3 years ago
    Alright people, let's get this JSRF bandwagon started.
    BiTheWay 3 years ago
    Also, some new back-compat OG Xbox games.
    BiTheWay 3 years ago
    I'm going to guess third parties will consist of a recycled Fallout 76 trailer, a kingdom hearts 3 world reveal, and a wild card. Meanwhile, Gears 4, Sea of Theves DLC, FH4 DLC, and a new game reveal (a small one) will lead the first party front.

    @_TheDarkSide_ luckily the other half is in london with my eldest when fury fights. Couldnt have worked out better!

    @ooombasa Safe to say the next Fable is next gen.
    ooombasa 3 years ago
    @Kami Playground has only just started development on the new Fable. They could announce its existence but outside of CGI promo they won't have anything to show.Don't expect Fable to be revealed (gameplay and all) until 2020 or later. AAA open world games take on average five years to make.
    ooombasa 3 years ago
    The speculation was one of the Texas game devs would be acquired.In Texas, there are:- Armature (ReCore)- Bluepoint (so many PS4 remasters)- Certain Affinity (co-developed Halo games, DOOM, CoD)- Playful (Super Lucky's Tale, who just hired lead designer of DK Tropical Freeze)

    @MilkYMoO I would love to see a segment focussed on another push for this.

    _TheDarkSide_ 3 years ago
    @weebleman Haha!Happy anniversary, fella.You'll have to get your good lady interested in boxing. I'm trying to get mine interested so that when Wilder and Fury meet up in December (So excited for that fight) I can surprise my missus with an early pay per view 'Christmas present'. 😉
    eddiehitler 3 years ago
    Probably more on Crackdown and maybe Gears games. Some big original Xbox backwards compatible titles might be on the cards too in my estimation.

    I mean I wont watch it, it will be pure cringe, but I will check in later to see what was announced.

    So, is this finally the moment Fable makes a comeback?
    spamdangled 3 years ago
    @Malek86 Apparently there will be at least one major announcement.
    Kami 3 years ago
    Good evening all, here we are again for another event. At least it probably won't be a sofa-bound chat show... right?

    Bizarrely looking forward to this. I hope the Microsoft roadies smuggle in some of the caravan too on their way back.
    Malek86 3 years ago
    Two hours sounds like a bit too much, given that it probably won't have all that many new announcements. But hey, give me some OG Xbox games and I'll be happy enough.

    You say 9pm BST. But we are currently on GMT. Is that a typo?
