When it comes to E3, you can always count on Microsoft
to bring the spectacle -- and E3 2021
was no different thanks to the combined Xbox & Bethesda Showcase
. Traditionally these two publishers do their own thing, but now that they’re both a part of the same happy Xbox Game Studios
family we got an action-packed 90 minute presentation covering 30 titles, 27 of which are headed to Xbox Game Pass
Yeah, it was as breathless as it was impressive.
So, did we get our first look at Bethesda Gamer Studios
? Yes we did, though it was more of a teaser. We also got a fresh look at Halo Infinite
, this time with a focus on the multiplayer side. Plus, the surprise -- and frankly stunning -- Forza Horizon 5
reveal which sees the series visit Mexico
later this year. Throw in the eastern European
combo of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2
and Atomic Heart
, not to mention the very cool-looking new indie Replaced
, and Team Xbox managed to bring the goods, more goods, and nothing but the goods.
