Xbox Games Showcase live report

Well Halo there! Microsoft shows its next-gen hand, live from 5pm BST

Ooooooh, I'm a tinglin' because this one should be special. After a slight false start earlier in the year, Microsoft is about to properly show its hand when it comes to the next generation of Xbox. The Xbox Games Showcase is - as the name suggests - about games and nothing else. Join us at 5pm BST to see what surprises await.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

16:35

*taps mic*

16:35

*sniffs it suspiciously*

16:36

*clears throat*

16:36

*keeps clearing throat*

16:36

*really hacking away now*

16:37

*spits massive glob of phlegm*

16:37

But wait, look! The phlegm is XBOX GREEN.

16:37

Hello and welcome to the live report for today's Xbox Games Showcase.

16:37

Sorry about all the coughing and whatnot.

16:44

I've probably bored you with this before but my friend once interviewed Donald Sutherland and before he could even ask a question Donald demanded a spittoon.

16:38

That's proper old Hollywood behaviour.

16:39

You're all off watching the pre-show aren't you?

16:39

That's plain rude.

16:45

MarkMarkYepMark says:

I don’t fancy being your friend and having to tell Donald that Spittoon has a double “t” in it.

I knew that... Honest. (Thank heavens for the edit button).

16:45

15 minutes to go so I'm going to do the decent thing and get a beer.

16:54

Kami says:

I'm hitting the lucozade citrus chill atm.

That sounds much more palatable than what you were drinking last time!

16:54

So, predictions...

16:54

I'll let you go first.

16:55

Kami says:

WET 2?

16:55

Plz.

16:55

GarciaHotspur says:

Virtua Fighter 6 and OutRun 3 exclusive to Series X. Well you can wish...

16:55

Centrale1 says:

Jet Set Radio Infinite

16:56

Oh god you're all in for a CRUSHING DISAPPOINTMENT tonight.

16:56

I'd love Phil S to come rollerblading on stage, though, before doing a massive JSRF tag and announcing it's BAAAAAAAAAACK.

16:57

GarciaHotspur says:

Gradius 6 then surely?

Don't. Just don't.

16:57

Halo Infinite is of course locked in.

16:58

And I don't think anyone would be too surprised to see a new Forza Motorsport and Playground Games' Fable.

16:58

What else, though?

16:59

We're expecting new IP from Obsidian and something from The Initiative - the fancy Santa Monica studio Xbox has founded with veterans from the likes of Crystal Dynamics.

16:59

Will either of those make an appearance?

16:59

Kami says:

XBox 360 had some lovely JRPGs early on. Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery...

We have just had Dragon Quest 11 announced for Xbox! I think I'm up for a third playthrough of that too...

17:00

I honestly would be happy if we had an hour of Microsoft Flight Sim tbh.

17:00

Ten seconds.

17:00

And. Here. We. Go.

17:00

PEGI 18 PEOPLE! HOLD TIGHT FOR SOME GROT!

17:01

kaisersoser says:

Nice pre show. Some delightful surprises!

I missed the entire thing because I was too busy making sure I had beer for this. Ever the professional.

17:01

Well, this will be Halo Infinite then.

17:02

Which sounds very much like 343 is going back to the drawing board a bit - and going back to Combat Evolved.

17:03

Miyamotosan says:

Has anyone else got two doofus's talking over their video feed?

That's your punishment for watching the pre-show and not joining us here exclusively.

17:03

vert1go says:

Neck stab count so far: 0

It is early days...

17:03

Right, that's the CG bit done.

17:03

343 I love you, but no-one plays Halo for the CG bits.

17:03

GIVE US SOME GAMEPLAY.

17:04

Yeah like this will do - a dramatic emergency landing on a Halo ring sets up our first look at Infinite in action.

17:04

Which is obviously a bit familiar from Combat Evolved's iconic introduction of the ring world.

17:04

Wish this bearded lad would pipe down a bit.

17:05

Well, the Master Chief has a new annoying comedy sidekick.

17:05

Elsewhere, though - Halo Infinite does indeed look a lot like Combat Evolved.

17:06

It also looks a lot like Halo 5 to me - I'm not seeing anything that screams next-gen, but I am also watching on a compressed 1080p60 feed.

17:06

What it does show is that the more freeform battles of Combat Evolved's open levels feature.

17:07

As do, for now, solely Covenant enemies.

17:07

And as soon as I say that a big bastard brute shows up.

17:08

An elevator zooms quickly up from the ground and we get a sense of exactly how big this world is.

17:08

I think that was being pitched as Halo Infinite's Breath of the Wild moment.

17:09

And yes the Chief does have a grappling hook.

17:09

There's something incredibly camp about a grappling hook.

17:09

So I approve, basically.

17:09

Is Cortana the grappling hook? Is this a sneaky remake of that weird Bionic Commando reboot?

17:10

45709 says:

Place your bets will we get a release date and price?

I'd very much bet against it.

17:12

So, Halo Infinite - it looks... decent? We'll be seeing a bit more of it later on tonight and will be sure to tell you all we discover.

17:12

It's the most ambitious game they've done yet, say 343.

17:12

Still waiting for the day someone comes out and just admits this is the least ambitious thing they've done.

17:13

That they're just sort of going through the motions and living from paycheque to paycheque. Watching the clock tick to 5pm every day.

17:13

Anyway that was Halo Infinite it'll be 4K60 and will be Halo.

17:13

Here's a new game.

17:14

It's a CG trailer, unfortunately.

17:14

So feck knows exactly what kind of game it is.

17:14

It's got a manky deer in it tho.

17:14

And it is State of Decay 3.

17:15

Hope they put the manky deer on the cover.

17:15

There's Phil! What t-shirt is he wearing?

17:15

Oh it's just a Halo Infinite t-shirt. No sneaky tease - yet, anyway.

17:15

Instead we're getting a slick sales pitch on Games Pass.

17:16

samquorn92 says:

How many Japanese developed games can we expect today?

We've had Dragon Quest 11 already - I know it's old, but it's the biggest series Japan has so it's quite a statement of intent.

17:16

And here's cars.

17:16

Because I'm me I can tell you there was a Chaparral there.

17:16

And here's an in-engine look at what I think is simply called Forza Motorsport.

17:17

We start at Laguna Seca and also see a lot of a garage that I presume acts as some sort of hub.

17:17

And there's a lot of IMSA and GT machinery pounding around, which I approve of.

17:17

One thing to note there - that just said Windows and Xbox Series X. No Xbox One.

17:19

This is Everwild, which is either a terrible 90s indie rock band or Rare's new IP, I forget.

17:19

What kind of game is it? WHO KNOWS IT'S ANOTHER CG TRAILER.

17:20

Again, Xbox Series X and Windows PC the only platforms that show up there.

17:20

Everwild is a place to be eternal, we're told by Everwild's executive producer.

17:20

Hmmmm.

17:21

Next, let's go a bit more domestic with Dontnod's...

17:21

(Runs to google to remind myself what Dontnod are working on atm)

17:21

vert1go says:

TELL ME WHY!

17:21

Yes I knew that of course.

17:23

That was Tell Me Why. And this is Moon Studios, the devs behind Ori.

17:23

And they're making a special Xbox Series X version of Ori and the Will O' the Wisps

17:23

I got that wrong didn't I? It's Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

17:24

attomm19883 says:

Only Halo showed gameplay then, so far. So disappointing.

Forza was in-engine, if that counts...

17:24

(I don't think it does)

17:24

Private Division - 2K's indie arm - now has something to show us.

17:25

Ah, it's... Outer Worlds. I guess on Xbox Series X.

17:25

Peril on Gorgon, an Outer Worlds expansion coming September 9th. If that's your kind of thing.

17:26

And Grounded is next.

17:26

Obsidian's new joint that's currently available to check out in early access.

17:26

Does this mean we'll get to see the studio's new IP next?

17:27

Feargus is here now - we've seen two Obsidian games, so how about a third?

17:28

And here we go.

17:28

It's a CG trailer.

17:28

So *shrugs*.

17:29

Ah hang on, we've got a bit of first-person gameplay that looks very Skyrim.

17:29

oakie007 says:

Right that's it... I'm holding my breath until a decent game is shown...

RIP.

17:29

That could be something quite special, of course - though it's very hard to say based on that.

17:30

That's Avowed, then.

17:31

And this is a new game from Interior Night - London-based, and founded by a Quantic Dreams veteran.

17:31

It's a grounded experience - as you might expect given the studio's heritage.

17:31

An interactive drama.

17:32

Weirdly it looks to me like Linklater's rotoscoped films Waking Life and his great take on A Scanner Darkly.

17:33

Very hard to get a handle on that one, but here's Hellblade 2.

17:33

The reveal is that Hellblade 2 is set in Iceland. And there's a new video about how they scouted the location.

17:33

Oh video games.

17:34

Double Fine are next with what must be Psychonauts 2.

17:35

There is absolutely nothing so far that's motivating me to get a Series X later this year. But let's see!

17:35

vert1go says:

I can't wait for a documentary by (insert studio name) on their office kitchen.

17:35

Oh god yes please.

17:35

It's okay it's Jack Black singing.

17:36

BRB, rushing to Curry's to pre-order this Jack Black singing machine MS wants me to buy.

17:38

Destiny 2 is coming to Series X, and to Games Pass.

17:38

Do people still play Destiny 2? It feels like three lifetimes ago that I bounced so hard off it.

17:38

We'll be getting a 4K60 version of Destiny for Series X too.

17:40

Cypher-Unknown says:

When does the excitement start?

17:40

I just came back from a quick toilet break, so let's say..... NOW!

17:41

And with a nice look at STALKER 2 - hang on, they're still making STALKER 2 - I'm certainly feeling this a bit more.

17:41

That is a surprise, and a very welcome one!

17:41

This looks INCREDIBLY moody and sinister in all the best possible ways.

17:42

Yes please very much thank you.

17:42

And here's!

17:42

Kiliko says:

Drink every time it says world premiere

I've already been for one pee...

17:43

This is a new Warhammer game from FatShark?

17:43

Oh wow it's a 40K game from FatShark, called Darktide.

17:44

YES PLEASE.

17:44

All of a sudden this got real good.

17:44

And now it's Enhance, and it can't get much better than this.

17:45

This is a new take on Tetris Effect - one of the games of the last few years, if you ask me.

17:45

SO YES PLEASE.

17:45

Tetris Effect Connected, coming to Xbox later this year.

17:46

Image and Form, developers of SteamWorld, are working on something big.

17:46

That's another big yes please from me.

17:46

Mr.Spo says:

Quality - climbing.

17:46

And how!

17:47

The Gunk!

17:47

It looks packed full of neat and satisfying little systems like all of Image and Form's games - but this time in 3D!

17:48

Something moody and grounded now.

17:49

This, I believe, is Bloober's new joint.

17:49

(Someone much smarter than me just told me).

17:49

dai_bonehead says:

Watching with my 12 year old son. He just let rip with an absolute face melter of a fart. May be the most powerful thing I’ve experienced in the last hour.

The true power of the next generation.

17:49

Medium! Again, that looks like a Series X and PC exclusive.

17:49

SEGA

17:50

I know those guys!

17:50

They're great.

17:50

And I can sort of forgive them for taking so goddamn long to bring PSO 2.0 to the west.

17:50

Ah well, better late than never.

17:51

Phantasy Star Online 2.0 New Genesis, coming next year.

17:52

This, I think, is CrossFireEX - and Remedy's single-player piece of the massively popular game.

17:52

oldmanshoutsatcloud says:

CAN YOU PROTECT ME FROM FATE?

I mean, probably not.

17:54

Well, that's coming up to a wrap.

17:54

And there's more to come later in the year.

17:54

Oh yeah, and one last trailer.

17:54

(It's Fable).

17:55

It's a CG trailer though, innit.

17:55

Well, that revealed absolutely sod all.

17:55

A bit of an odd show, that.

17:56

Microsoft is keen to push its sort of platform agnostic games are games angle, which is great and something I broadly approve of.

17:56

But there is absolutely nothing there convincing me to get a Series X.

17:57

If I had the spare chunk of change needed for one of these machines later this year - well, I'd just spend it upgrading a PC.

17:57

Still, let's see what else they've got in the future! As mentioned earlier, we'll have more on Halo for you later tonight.

17:57

And thanks as ever for joining us.

17:58

(Don't blame me for the CG trailers, I do keep telling them but they won't listen).

17:59

oakie007 says:

Mother in law says.... Hi guys... How did Phil do...

Not his greatest performance - almost invisible, but a solid presence at the back. 6/10.

17:59

vert1go says:

Thank you again Martin!

Thank *YOU*!

    What an underwhelming show. Didn't they learn anything from the Inside Xbox debacle? Besides the Halo gameplay this was just CGI galore...
    lazarusnine 11 months ago
    @samquorn92 All the best. Thanks for the chat!
    Zeidric 11 months ago
    Overall, i'm fairly underwhelmed. There just wasn't really anything that screamed 'you need to buy me'. Halo looked just like Halo to me. Good but not amazing imo.
    formulaic 11 months ago
    Wonder why all the hate. What do you all expect? If there were revolutionary games being made out there then Microsoft and Sony would have their fair share of them. If not then that's reality. On that note, half life alyx is revolutionary.
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @lazarusnine - Not tried them tbh, just going off what I have been told.But I do know xCloud 'should' be much better than PS Now. There is a reason Sony have teamed up with MS to get access to xCloud.
    lazarusnine 11 months ago
    @samquorn92 Bloodborne sold me on a PS4 near the end of the launch model run. Might be Demon’s Souls that swings me this gen. =P
    lazarusnine 11 months ago
    @firemonkey Had a Steam Link. It wasn’t great and is now obsolete. I currently stream from one gaming PC to a less powerful gaming PC attached to the TVAlso not too keen on streaming games from the cloud. Tried PS Now. Was unimpressed with the lag and artefacting. Good suggestions, though!
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @lazarusnine I guess that's where xCloud comes in (which is going to be free with GamePass Ultimate)
    jetsetwillie 11 months ago
    @samquorn92 even the the terrible framerate and long load times damped the 'wow' for Bloodborne
    DrRobotnik 11 months ago
    Every single game in that presentation (minus xfire campaign) is on Game Pass. That is INSANE. Halo, Fable, Forza, Stalker, Psychonaughts, Avowed, Medium... the lot. If you were smart enough to sign up for 3 years when they did their £1 conversion deal, you've got a huge stream of games coming over the next 3 years, for a total of about £150. Madness.
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @samquorn92 & @lazarusnine Look into Steamlink.It allows you to stream your PC games to your TV and is apparently really good.
    lazarusnine 11 months ago
    @firemonkey Microsoft’s UWP games don’t play nicely with Steam remote play, and Moonlight has its issues as well. If I could easily stream my Game Pass (PC) games on a local network at near full quality, I’d be happy. I find I just default to Xbox One S these days when it comes to Game Pass - unfortunately.
    SBandy 11 months ago
    Half of the trailers didn't say Xbox One but did have the optimised for Series X badge, whilst others did. But if it is being optimised for Series X then surely there is a lesser version?Not exactly a clear message.
    Burner220 11 months ago
    Let’s be honest. Early adopters of every console since maybe the PS2 era get screwed for about a year or so. Games just aren’t there at launch typically.
    Baldanders 11 months ago
    For Microsofts flagship game, Halo really disappointed. I'm sure a lot of halo fans loved it. Bit they need to wow the non fans too and I don't think they did it
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @lazarusnine - Streaming from PC to your TV is pretty easy now tbh.
    lazarusnine 11 months ago
    @samquorn92 Ha. If only! It’s a bit impractical running an HDMI cable down multiple floors of the house. Might just need to build a second gaming PC. =P
    myiagros 11 months ago
    @Burner220 some specifically said Xbox One, quite a lot didn't (just Xbox Series X & Windows PC)
    imi87 11 months ago
    @TinyKaiju Yes, i forgot about UE5 not releasing until next year. It doesn't really help the Series X at the moment.
    Kami 11 months ago
    Take care all, hopefully the next time we're all here we can see some actual GAMEPLAY! Wouldn't that be nice? XD
    Kami 11 months ago
    Right, off to get some food since I put that on hold to watch this and get blueballed by bloody Fable. Phil Spencer, here's my middle finger! Oh, sorry, make that two.
    Burner220 11 months ago
    @myiagros I am under the impression that everything shown will be XB1 compatible as well. Could always be mistaken I guess.
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @Lazarusnine - Get it on XBox All Access where you will pay (about £30) a month and get Game Pass Ultimate too. Seems a no-brainer to me.
    Der_tolle_Emil 11 months ago
    Not great, not terrible. Ultimately it felt more like a promo for Game Pass rather than a show set out to promote the games itself with very little in-depth information and most of the time not even proper gameplay footage.I mean it's nice that I will be able to play all of them thanks to them being on Game Pass but to be honest I'd much rather play them because I am interested in them, not because I get them for free.
    TinyKaiju 11 months ago
    @imi87 "No show of footage for hellblade 2 was unusual. Not impressed...." I don't think we'll see anything from that in a while. The UE5 engine isn't even available to developers until midway through next year.
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    Halo did nothing for me.Loved the first, but then I didn't play any others.Did it always have a slightly cartoony look?
    lazarusnine 11 months ago
    The only thing this showcase revealed to me was that Game Pass remains a good deal, but I can’t justify buying an Xbox Series X as a PC owner. It would be like burning cash. Problem is, sometimes you just want the simplicity of a console hooked up to your TV without the annoyance and limitations of in-home streaming, etc. Guess that’s why it’s going to have to be a PS5.
    Burner220 11 months ago
    @samquorn I agree. Feel like neither company wants to get out to far ahead of the other in fear of being undercut or shown up.
    myiagros 11 months ago
    Suprising amount of stuff not realesing for Xbox One, despite MS previous messages.
    Kami 11 months ago
    What bothers me a little is I guess these consoles will both release in November... that's four months away and there's still so much vagueness.
    Krychek 11 months ago
    @FireMonkey probably a worlds colliding/multiverse/portal core theme
    Burner220 11 months ago
    Was just curious how they are going to try to sell the upgrade from PS4 at launch.
    imi87 11 months ago
    Wow, I've got to say I thought that showcase was pretty terrible. Halo Infinite didn't look great, (even clear pop in during the footage),mind you it was at 1080p. The rest of footage was mostly CG trailers, with very little gameplay footage. I've gotta say this has really put me on the fence about picking up a Series X at launch! No show of footage for hellblade 2 was unusual. Not impressed....
    Kami 11 months ago
    Demon's Souls would be a fantastic launch game but I suspect it won't be. I want it to be, but I Press X To Doubt.
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @Krychek - No doubt it will be a great game... but from what they showed, but they could have done a great game without it and I'm not sure what it really brought (apart from making it look more confusing)
    Kami 11 months ago
    Launch titles? I don't think so, we know some of the games coming but I don't think any were absolutely confirmed for launch.
    Burner220 11 months ago
    Do we know the PS5 launch titles yet?
    Krychek 11 months ago
    @FireMonkey well, I do trust Insomniac to integrate it as more than just a gimmick.
    Kami 11 months ago
    But yeah, I guess Gamepass is making a lot of sense for people now... just starting to wonder if Microsoft could or should have cut out the middleman of new console hardware at this rate...
    the_sas_man 11 months ago
    I just want an Alan Partridge game where I get to run my own radio show.
    FireMonkey 11 months ago
    @Krychek - The problem with that Ratchet and Clank thing, is to me it felt 'really' forced, like someone at Sony said "You have to show off this tech!"I'm not sure if it will actually make it a better game.
    Miyamotosan 11 months ago

    Burner220 11 months ago
    I think this transition to next gen makes more sense for MS with what we know right now. For MS you don’t have to upgrade yet because they are still supporting the old console. Series X right now is mainly about slightly better experience until the games start coming. But PS5 is supposed to be separate, but we know the games won’t be there yet either.
    Kami 11 months ago
    I just wish they'd showed us something - ANYTHING - of the new Fable game. That joke trailer has the humour, but I really was hoping for SOME gameplay after all this time!
    TinyKaiju 11 months ago
    Way too much CG. May as well have stuck a note on screen telling us to come back in a few years.
    Krychek 11 months ago
    It didn't have that Ratchet & Clank moment, where you're seeing real-time use of a next-gen only hardware feature that can't be executed via a graphics preset reduction
    Kami 11 months ago
    But The Medium is up my alley, I am a big survival horror nut and that really has my attention.
    _Alan_Cartridge_ 11 months ago
    @miyamotosan yeah but you're a massive Sony fanboy so you're bound to say that. Us that like games have loads to look forward to on both.
    weebleman 11 months ago
    bit shit that to be honest
    freaqie 11 months ago
    everything showed there could run on the current gen, nothing genuinely pushing the state of the art. dissapointing
    belziah 11 months ago
    This is the most comically cagey transition to next-gen I’ve witnessed. Neither company appears comfortable.

    ... okay, I'm lying, Demon's Souls tickles me in all the naughty places but if it ain't on launch, I am waiting.

    attomm19883 11 months ago
    So far I have learnt that the Series X can do CG cutscenes as well or maybe even better than the PS3 / Xbox 360 generation. Not sure that is reason for me to invest in a new console.
    RorschachCCCLX 11 months ago
    No price mentioned, no lockeheart, no metal gear, so I'm going to give it a miss.
    Oneandgonetwo 11 months ago
    Really enjoyed it. Sony had better get some new IPs. Horizon Zero 30fps and GOW 20 just ain’t gonna cut it.
    _Alan_Cartridge_ 11 months ago
    Go back and watch the Sony event 90% of that was trailers as well.
    Kami 11 months ago
    Yeah, for me it's about on par with Sony. Neither is screaming out "hey, you know all that money in your savings? How about you blow a massive chunk of it on me?"
    vert1go 11 months ago
    NOU!
    theguy 11 months ago
    Reckon we got at least 10 minutes of gameplay in that, or is that overshooting it?
    Cainhurst 11 months ago
    Perfectly summed up. Get a good PC for the games. Nothing really screams buy on launch.
    Kami 11 months ago
    No, thank YOU Martin! XD
    Burner220 11 months ago
    I honestly don’t see an ounce of difference between this and Sony’s conference. Neither showed much gameplay. First party stuff was fairly limited. No issue with the show for me.

    Pretty brutal overall. I'm getting a Series X since I'm still rocking a launch XB1 and haven't had a chance to play anything in 4K yet, and will enjoy it for the multiplatforms, but if I were trying to decide between this and a PS5 they did not help sway me to the Xbox.

    Presentation has been a bit of a rope-a-dope. Some very 2012 looking Halo footage, and a game announcement that was just drone footage from location scouting, in the first half. But much more interesting over the past 10 minutes or so. Just no firepower on the first party exclusives, unless they are saving it for the end.

    Krychek 11 months ago
    Even when a game is listed "Series X/Windows PC" without Xbox One, ask yourself if they can design core world complexity/gameplay that depends on the Series X SSD and fully taps the specs - will they cut-off a ton of PC version players by enforcing high specs-only and a hard SSD requirement? Not yet. So the design can only exploit Series X so much. First-party on PS5 doesn't share this concern as next-gen begins.
