Diablo 4 was another huge reveal, especially in light of the disappointment many felt toward Diablo Immortal. For the moment, this title seems to deliver everything fans wanted from a mainline entry. Overwatch 2 was another big announcement. Though we only saw a bit of gameplay, it was good to see that the upcoming entry will introduce some new characters. We also can’t forget about Forza Motorsport, which Microsoft promises is the most technologically-advanced entry in the long-running racing game series.
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 has come to a close. Microsoft’s spoof E3 2022 event delivered on its promise of practically continuous gaming news and trailers. Though some of the big names on display won’t be available until 2023, we spotted a lot of games that will be available in 2022. The star of the show (no pun intended) was none other than Starfield, which had been delayed for quite some time. We received a full-fledged trailer showcasing off the game’s mechanics instead of mere concept art or short gameplay teases. The other Bethesda game to get a new trailer is Redfall. This trailer focuses more on the game’s lore while also revealing some of the game’s characters.
The future of Xbox is looking a bit brighter now after this showcase. Again, it will be some time before we see heavy hitters like Starfield and Diablo 4, but based on what we saw, the wait should be well worth it. Hello, everyone! Computing Writer Tony Polanco here to cover the big Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase! Be sure to keep a window open to follow this blog for all the latest updates and spicy(?) takes. This should be a pivotal show for Xbox as we’ll no doubt see what’s in store for the rest of the year and the immediate future.
There were a ton of expansions coming to existing games, including Forza Horizon 5, Microsoft Flight Simulator, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout 76 and Sea of Thieves. Also, Grounded is leaving early access and becoming a full game in September. One of the biggest surprises was that Persona games are finally coming to Xbox. This includes Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden Abyss and Persona 4 Royal. Staying on the Japanese games front, we saw none other than Hideo Kojima show up during the live stream to announce his collaboration with Microsoft Studios.
