More than 90 minutes of news and trailers for future Xbox games were shown during this year’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. It was a discussion about what Xbox owners might expect in 2022 and beyond, including updates on the latest projects from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks.
Xbox titles that are expected to be released in early 2023 were included in Microsoft’s Sunday presentation. Before concluding with a deep dive into Bethesda’s Starfield sci-fi RPG, attendees saw gameplay samples for Forza Motorsport 7, Redfall 7, and Diablo 4. There was something for everyone at the event, which featured upcoming blockbusters as well as some exciting independent films.
The Latest from The Windows.
Throughout the weekend, Windows Central has been live blogging, and you can still follow along. Windows Central’s Senior Xbox Editors Jez Corden and Matt Brown will provide in-depth analysis and comments on the latest news and rumors surrounding Xbox One. Check out the latest from the Windows Central team, including news updates, trailers, and important takeaways from the 2022 show.
A current-generation showpiece like Forza Motorsport may be just what the Xbox needs. With a lengthy gameplay demonstration of the upcoming Forza Motorsport revival on display at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, Turn10 Studios attracted a lot of attention. Despite the stunning visuals, the accompanying gameplay breakdown and information were likely even more astounding than the footage itself.
As a result of Turn10 Studios’ innumerable in-game upgrades for the Forza Motorsport series, the Forza Motorsport team has boldly declared their latest masterpiece to be “the most technically advanced racing game ever developed.”
In an interview, Todd Howard talked about the future of Fallout 5 and the scale of Starfield.
After the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Todd Howard spoke with IGN about Starfield’s size and what Bethesda Softworks has in store for the future. There are more than 200,000 voices in Starfield, according to Bethesda’s creative director in an interview, which is impressive considering the game doesn’t have a vocal protagonist, four main towns (including the largest metropolis Bethesda has ever developed), and much more.
The major quests in Starfield are expected to take between 30 and 40 hours to complete, but the replayability of the game is nearly infinite thanks to numerous side quests, over 1,000 planets to explore, and more. The CEO of Bethesda Softworks, Howard, also revealed that the company already has a strategy in place for what comes next following the launch of Starfield.
Finally, The Elder Scrolls 6 is now in the early stages of development. With Fallout 5 already in development, it’s clear that Bethesda Softworks will be busy for years to come. What could be great with Minecraft Legends is if Mojang Studios can overcome all of the obstacles. I was excited when Minecraft Legends was announced during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, and it was only a matter of time before I got my hands on it. When it comes to making Minecraft Legends happen, Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive have found a capable partner in Blackbird Interactive to help them achieve their goal.
Minecraft Legends, however, has a number of hurdles that Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive will have to overcome if they are to succeed. If Minecraft Legends is to succeed, it must not just be a fantastic addition to the action-strategy genre, but it must also be a thoughtful and seamless addition to the Minecraft franchise. All the people of the Overworld will unite against the sinister invasion of piglins from the Nether in Minecraft Legends, an all-new storyline.
Minecraft-themed exploration, resource collection, building, real-time strategy, and third-person action/combat appear to be woven into the title. If Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive can stay faithful to the inclusivity and spirit of “Minecraft,” while still delivering an action-strategy romp across an entirely new blocky environment, I’m eager to learn more about Minecraft Legends. Please, more dungeons and less Earth in Minecraft. A lot more information regarding Minecraft Legends should be available soon.
At some point in 2023, Minecraft Legends will be available on Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Of course, it’s part of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming from the get-go. During the extended Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, GSC Game World, the Ukraine-based developers of the upcoming survival shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl, delivered an emotional message.
During the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has significantly altered the lives of many GSC employees, the game’s development was shown off in the video. This year’s horrific crisis in Ukraine has had a permanent impact on Ukraine and on the lives of its people, but GSC Game World is still firmly dedicated to delivering the game to players at some point in 2023.
Describe the Horrors.
Several S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 devs describe the horrors of war in the dev diary posted above, and the post concludes with a plea for people to lend their support to Ukraine. After that, GSC Game World released a new cinematic teaser showing off the stunning sights and sinister mood of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl. By the year 2023, the Xbox Series X|S and PC versions of STA.L.K.E.R. 2:
Heart of Chornobyl should be available through Xbox Cloud Gaming and Xbox and PC Game Pass. Horrors of the multiplayer variety Coming to Xbox and PC Game Pass: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a mysterious multiplayer horror game, was another unexpected reveal made during the extended Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. An Xbox One and PC release date of 2023 was also confirmed as an exclusive to the Xbox console line-up. Support for Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming from launch has been verified.
