E3 Microsoft conference recap

Recommended Posts

With E3 Microsoft press conference over it is now time to Recap all the things!

 

e3events.jpg

 

We start off with Call of Duty: Advanced Warefare

 

 

Call of Duty was first to appear at E3 showing an impressive trailer.

Showing a set of playable segments showing the following:

 

-Jet packs

-Mechs

-Matrix style drone swarms

-Customisable grenades (EMP, Pulse and Seeking)

-A laser type riot shield

 

At least... That's all I noted.

The graphics looked amazing but I hope the enemy isn't really that easy to fight.

 

Next up we can already see someone die. Massive spoiler?

Also we see how out main character loses his arm in a pretty nicely done cutscene in my opinion.

 

Forza 5 and Horizon 2

With the recent announcements of both games we now get to see what they were talking about.

 

Forza 5 is getting a free DLC which features the Nürenburger track which is an actual existing racing track and put into the game with 100% accuracy.

 

Then (rather quickly) we move on to Horizon 2.

Horizon 2 is built off the Forza 5 engine. Which will give us 1080p grahics.

They've also implemented a huge amount of sweet looking cars that we will be able to race around in an open world.

Want to play with your friends or online? Almost no waiting time due to dedicated servers which will hook you up in not time at all.

Next to all that you can create your own club (clan) which can feature up to 1000 members!

The game is set to release at September 30th.

 

Evolve

 

 

Evolve is a class based game in which you have to take down large monsters, with guns and everything of course.

Next to 4 player co-op mayhem one will also be able to play as the actual monster to ruin the day of your friends. Expect a lot of IRL hitting!

Xbox One owners will get an exclusive beta acces. Get some!

 

Assassins Creed Unity

 

[PEGI 18]

 

 

 

 

 

 

A new Assassins Creed title is already coming up! Set during the french revolution.

What makes this one different is the fact that you can play the game in a 4-player co-op.

We were shown just that on stage. 4 players sneaking around and taking down hostiles together to eventually assassinate the target by throwing him out of a window towards a crowd of blood thirsty people which proceeds to kill him in quite a gruesome manner.

 

One thing I noticed was that the parkour looked a lot better. Smoother and quicker.

Then again when the guy walked though a crowd I saw some bumps and it looked iffy. But still plenty of time to fix that right?

 

Next up was a Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer

 

 

The trailer looked nice but there was little info given.

One thing we do know is that is will release on October 7th

 

 

Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive gave us a very fun trailer.

The game will be set in Sunset city, which is now overrun by mutated humans. The mutation was caused by an energy drink that the mutants still crave next to your skin. Also breaking the fourth wall was quite prominent.

The style of the game is very cartoony with 'boom' and 'splat' appearing in blood or explosions. It also features a lot of parkour and jumping around while shooting the absolute -Yoink!- out of everything in your path, mutants and hostile humans alike.

I enjoyed the trailer very much :D

 

Sunset Overdrive will feature a 8 player co-op mode on dedicated servers in which you'll cause absolute chaos!

The release date is set on the 28th of October.

 

Capcom 31st anniversary

 

 

Capcom decided to give us a DLC for Dead Rising 3 with a title so long that I wasn't able to put it down on paper...

Featuring all of the Capcom Characters in a arcade game. You can even play as tofu! What more do you want to hear from me?! TOFU!!!

 

You can play together with 3 other friends as of now. Because the game has been released JUST NOW!

 

Dance Central Spotlight

 

 

Dance your heart out in the new Dance Central title. Although the guy who presented it didn't look like dancing to me...

Dance to all the popular songs coming September. Digital release only.

 

Fable Legends

 

 

Fable Legends will send us back to the world of Albion and we'll get to see some old friends and corny jokes.

The game will feature 4-player co-op and each player can invoke a different role which each different skills. There can also be a villain player that can ruin your day by placing traps and monsters around every corner. Griefers eat your heart out!

 

Project Spark

 

 

Project Spark has already had a beta in which we could get familiar with the game.

This game allows you to do absolutely everything! Make you own game, create your own world, create anything you like from the ground up!

Our little friend Conker also made a brief appearance... Interesting.

 

Ori

 

The game Ori was showcased in a very touching trailer. The style reminded me of Limbo, only this game is very colourful.

Dem feels ;-;

 

The Master Chief collection

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iGcS-0KpVw

 

Holy -YOINK!-

This is just about everything we had been hoping for.

 

We started of with a trailer for the next Halo. We heard the Arbiter and saw the mysterious spartan which now has a name, Agent Clarke.

Agent Clarke is in search of the Master Chief but the role of the Arbiter is still a bit shady. Is he searching too?

 

But lets not forget everything leading up to Halo 5. That's why 343i is releasing the Master Chief collection. One disc that features all the previous Halo games with all the content unlocked and more.

The Disc will contain:

 

Halo CE: Anniversary With the original multiplayer instead of the Halo: Reach version

 

Halo 2: Anniversary Which features a remade campaign, multiplayer and achievements

 

Halo 3 Which features all DLC content. Maybe even Flaming helmet?

 

Halo 4 Which features all DLC content. Maybe even all pre-order armours?

 

A live action series called Halo: Nightfall

 

A beta acces key for Halo 5 arena which will be available this ummer

 

4000 gamerscore. Happy hunting!

 

All this can be accesed from just one single disc seamlessly and will release the 11th of November

 

Inside

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTK1QtmHACg

 

A trailer for Inside was shown. 

The game is set in a world in which everyone is controlled by automatons. You play as a boy who is still free.

The game is similair to Limbo as it is created by the same developers.

 

A whole load of games coming to the Xbox One is show... Too much to all write down... Sorry!

 

Tomb Raider

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kLAyzmWnk4

 

A trailer for Tomb raider is shown.

Of course you still play as Lara Croft.

Not very much is shown next to that.

 

The Witcher 3

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVlE8BXEbpE

 

The developers of The Witcher 3 show us a bit of gameplay 10 hours into the game.

They hunt down a monster in a very very large world. Because of this open world it is very likely that you side track slightly. By bandits for example.

The game will also feature interactive dialogue.

 

Killer instinct

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnhEeZY75C0

 

This game made a brief appearance in the pre-show. Not much else was done during the conference.

 

Phantom Dust

 

A trailer for Phantom Dust is shown.

This will be a fighter game.

 

The Division

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWJD8DMasCU

 

Although this game has been delayed the developers showed a bit of gameplay. 

Starting off below ground they show us a holographic map which shows where you are between the buildings and streets around you and a holographic image of thing that happened in the past.

Upon contact with enemies you AI friends will actually have a lot of actual dialogue. Reacting directly to things happening around you.

Also I liked the style very much!

 

Scalebound

 

Scalebound showed us a trailer with a lot of monsters fighting  and of course the character you play as gets involved to. Fighting with a headphone on blasting some fitting music.

Not much else is shown.

 

Crackdown

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqWvvmgFDt4

 

Crackdown makes a return!

Featuring better graphics, but keeping the old style.

Play with a friend in a open world on dedicated servers. The trailer also showed a lot of destruction, will we be able to destroy buildings in this world?

 

 

This conculdes everything shown at the conference. I will try to add the trailers and gameplay video as they appear to fill up the games that didn't have that much info.

 

Speculate down below!

Thank you for reading! :D

Microsoft had a very strong press conference this year. The Master Chief Collection was easily the strongest portion of their press conference. I'm very excited for this fall. Great recap P34nut! :yay:

This generation is the generation of color! Finally a refreshing change from the gray and green scale worlds of 360 and PS3 land.

Crackdown , The master Chief collection were really good choices ( the only ones that interest me )
