All the good bits from the Xbox Games Showcase

In lieu of E3 Microsoft held a virtual showcase overnight, highlighting a series of new titles for both their current and next generations of consoles.

Overall the presentation was, as promised, a non-stop parade of upcoming titles for the Xbox platform. Was it enough though heading into a new console generation and many, if not all, titles being made for hardware people already own.

It’s going to be a very interesting holiday season and I’m unsure if Xbox have done enough to pitch their new Xbox Series X ahead of it.

Halo: Infinite

Halo Infinite is the biggest and most ambitious Halo game ever created. Fans of the Master Chief around the world got a first-ever look at Halo Infinite’s campaign, featuring new gameplay mechanics, bigger battles, epic vistas and more complex visual effects than ever before, utilizing the full power of Xbox Series X.
