Booming world of play revs E3 video game extravaganza

Xbox Game Pass Android Booming world of play revs E3 video game extravaganza
Melba Vasquez | 12 June, 2018, 20:15

At its press conference at the 2018 E3 Show, Microsoft revealed that it has bought Forza Horizon developer Playground Games and has letters of intent to acquire Ninja Theory, Undead Labs and Compulsion Games. Those games included "Battlefield 5" from Electronic Arts, "Fallout 76" from Bethesda Softworks and "Tom Clancy's The Division 2" from Ubisoft.

"Xbox One X players will have the option to play the game in native 4K at 30fps, or play in 60fps at a lower resolution", writes Xbox Wire Editor Mike Nelson. The four studios will add to Microsoft's considerable heft in first-party game development, especially as the company looks to strengthen its game download subscription service Xbox Game Pass.

Remember that numerous games announced by Microsoft, in fact a lot of them, will be playable via Microsoft Game Pass.

Other games like Madden 19 and Forza Horizon 4 are known entities.

They weren't lying. No fewer than three new Gears of War titles were revealed. Taken together, this represents a doubling of Microsoft's wholly owned game studios.

Unlike the previous/current "Ready to Start" system, which must be configured by game developers, FastStart is a platform-level feature so all games should benefit.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, announces original Xbox Backward Compatibility at the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing on Sunday, June 11, 2017 in Los Angeles. Beyond that, the company launched a new studio headed by Darrell Gallagher, who formerly headed the studio behind the relaunch of Tomb Raider.

Both services will be able to stream games to smartphones and other devices.

This demo is showing off the Slipspace engine, the backbone of Halo Infinite. I'm thrilled to join the Microsoft Studios family as it is clear to me that the gaming team at Microsoft shares my passion for storytelling, world-building and creative exploration. Perhaps even slightly humbled by the lessons it's had to learn this gen, it's stacking the deck for the next battle for gamers' hearts - and it's a battle it just might win.
