Microsoft just launched a whole lot of new stuff at the Xbox press conference at E3 2018 at Los Angeles. The new games that Microsoft unveiled include new Halo and Gears of War games, Fallout 76, The Division 2, Dying Light 2, a brand new Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, and a new samurai action game called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from the makers of Dark Souls.
Quite a few of the games shown were from other developers that will be available on platforms other than the Xbox and this was a welcome sight. So let’s take a look at what Microsoft showcased this year.
This will perk up some Halo fans as a new game is about to come and we even get a look at Master Chief who is holding on to his helmet, getting ready for some action as some marines ride a warthog towards him. There is no other information given on this game right now by Microsoft.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
We were treated to some visuals from the sequel of Ori and the Blind Forest and the new game looks just as beautiful as the last one. Not much seems to have changed with the visuals and the gameplay, and the game will be hitting the shelves in 2019.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
This hack and slash game from the makers of Dark Souls came as a surprise to everyone and boy does it look good. From Software is sticking to its guns and doing what it does best. This game takes heavily after Bloodborne with the hack and slash and the use of grappling hook. This game in coming in 2019 and will be available on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
Our first look of Fallout 76 from Bethesda came at the Xbox event where the developers basically explained that this is four times the size of Fallout 4, and will be set in the hills of West Virginia. The company didn’t reveal much else here and kept most of the details to be revealed at its own press conference held later.
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

We got yet another look at Terry Crews’ Crackdown 3 where he basically talks about himself, a lot. This game uses a lot of neon and gives the ingame Terry insane powers. The release seems to have been delayed again, and now it stands at February 2019.
This is a very regular Metro trailer with some classic stuff from the games. According to the devs this time the world is even more expansive than before. This too will be coming out in February 2019.

The Division 2
The Division 2 gameplay trailer showed us a varied terrain in the game in a rather short span of time. In the six minute trailer we witnessed the game move from what looked to be a dense forest to metropolitan streets of DC. Here again it looks to be a multiplayer oriented gameplay. This game is coming out on March 15, 2019.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
