If you somehow left wanting even more after the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, don't worry Microsoft has got you covered.
On 17th June (that's later this week) at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST, video game and tech YouTuber 'Parris' will be hosting a special Xbox Games Showcase: Extended.
As you can see below, it'll feature a number of conversations with Xbox Game Studios such as Double Fine, Obsidian, Rare and more.
If we hear anything else, we'll be sure to let you know. Will you be tuning into this extended look? Leave a comment down below.
They say it won't have any further announcements or reveals but Ninja Theory is mentioned and they was not "there" before.
Just don’t wanna be very toxic about it but Forza Horizon 5 (a racing gaming) looks way more photorealistic and next-gen than any PS gameplay I’ve seen this year. As a Xbox fan, I’m really proud of Playground Games and I think it’s a hidden gem which can prove to be even more than what Insomniac is to PS. They had been through thick and thin delivering high quality exclusives for Xbox when there weren’t any. I want Phil to know now that you have well established “acquisitions” in your studio lineup, please invest heavily on team Playground Games as it’s have been through a “natural growth” which we are really proud of.
Also the show is 9/10 for me as we are getting two big, very big AAA first party exclusives this year let alone all the great big exclusives jam packed for next two years. This further makes a strong argument in making an investment on Xbox ecosystem from a consumer point of view. And I really really don’t get the hate towards racing genre. My first game that I played on my first PC was NFS MW which I’m not ashamed to admit. Playground games has really reinvented that genre as there’s no real competitor. Graphics of racing games are never supposed to look even better than the blockbuster action adventure AAA titles but here we are all thanks to Playground.
Wow now I feel old (mid 30s!) as my first game was Burnin Rubber on the Amstrad 464 - NFS:MW I still think of as being reasonably recent!
Agree on the FH graphics - on the base Xbox One FH3 and 4 looked amazing, let alone on XSX, and the new one looks better again. That plus Flight Sim might be close to the photo realism we've been promised for so many years
Also shows why I'm pretty relaxed with Playground developing Fable - they have an amazing engine and they know how to get the best out of it, just like Ninja Theory with theirs.
As for this developer showcase, think after most of the big surprises from yesterday's show leaked (so despite being excellent may have felt a little underwhelming) that some minor updates from Ninja Theory and Obsidian on progress around the "big" games that weren't in yesterday's showcase would go a long way to reassuring fans that these aren't years and years away...
Hoping for snippets on of gameplay on 1 or 2 of these. Can't wait to watch this.
@abe_hikura rumor I heard is Hellblade 2 was supposed to have a vidoc update yesterday and it got cut which is why the runtime was a few minutes under 90 minutes. They’ll probably just show the vidoc at this on Thursday.
