It all started with a bang, lots of bangs, all in true 4K and 60FPS. That was Microsofts intention from the get go, to hammer home that it has built the most power console in the world and now we know it’s name. The Xbox One X. Releasing on November 7th and costing a hefty $499. They showed off its capabilities with a trailer for Forza 7

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps
Backwards compatibility was next on the agenda and despite already having 385 Xbox 360 titles available, Microsoft decided that’s not good enough. Coming this years they’re adding Original Xbox titles to the list.
Closing the show was an exclusive look at gameplay footage for Bioware’s brand new IP, Anthem. It’s a co-op mini mmo in the vein of Destiny where you and a few friends can climb into one of Ironmans old suits and shoot monsters/aliens. There’s loot drops and everything. First impressions are that this is going to be a big deal when it’s released. It looks beautiful and the environments look chocked full of interesting secrets to discover. Plus you get a cool robosuit to cruise about in.
