Microsoft Xbox X019: Age of Empires IV, new, Rare, and Obsidian games, xCloud on your PC, and more
Last year, Microsoft its X0 fan gathering risen in triumphant fashion, announcing that it had been purchased by veteran developers InXile and Obsidian. This year, the Xbox X019, we saw the first reward as Obsidian announced a new game, and InXile pinned a release date on Wasteland 3.
news to start plus the first proper trailer Age of Empires IV, details of the project xCloud upcoming PC, a release date for Halo on the PC, a new game from Rare, and more than all announcements to Xbox-X019 recap. Microsoft’s event is very relevant for PC gamers.
A survival game, eh? I did not expect that Obsidian is the first project under Microsoft’s care. Actually, I’m assumed, the Obsidian buy would not bear fruit for a couple of years, and would Outer culminating in a world-style RPG.
But no, early in the year 2020, we are theGrounded. It goes to the next “Xbox-game-preview” title at release.k.a. in Early Access, and is under the management of pillars of eternity‘s Josh Sawyer, which is always exciting news. Obsidian’s stated goal is not to create a story-driven survival game, this is just uncharted territory—The Long Dark only his third Chapter added, in the last month, and Subnautica had some story elements as well.
Grounded has a hell of a unique hook. It’s basically Honey I Shrunk the Kids, but playable. You are with the task of survival in a normal, everyday backyard—unless you’re the size of a bug. Not stepped on. Or have? No kink-shaming here.
the pivot from a takeover to the next. There are more than three years since the Wasteland 3‘s crowdfunding campaign, but it’s aaaaalmost ready. InXile’s Brian Fargo brought a new trailer to X019, and also an official release date: may 19, 2020. Almost six months after the day of here, this is just enough time to check out our 2014 game of the year Wasteland 2 if you have not already done so.
Another long-awaited release date, 343 originally said that the entire Halo: Master Chief Collection would be on PC by the end of 2019. Uh…well, that’s not going to happen. We received the first part, before the year is out though! Test, finally, is the follow-up, and we will see Halo: Reach hit both Steam and the Windows 10 Store on 3. December. Hopefully the rest is not far behind.
Sea of Thieves , the launch is not as lubricated as I had hoped, but the game seems to be in a pretty good place these days, and I still get plenty excited when I hear Rare is working on something new. We saw little more than a teaser on X019, but it is Everwild, it looks very vague Zelda-ish, and you can catch the debut trailer below:
I’m really surprised how many games distributed to Microsoft before next year s ‘ generation-console-handover. In addition to Wasteland 3, Ninja Theory ‘ s Bleeding Edge official release confirmed on January 24. March 2020. I’m still not sure if this battle born-in search of multiplayer game is everything that I want, but hey, it’s Ninja Theory is doing competitive melee combat. This is fascinating, at least.
Tell Me Why
Microsoft acquired Life is Strange developer Dontnod. Not yet, anyway. But you have partnership with Dontnod, a new game in the same direction. With the title tell Me Why, it is because of the release in three episodes, in the course of the summer, 2020—a much tighter timeline than life is Strange 2, published wrap up in December, more than a year after its first episode. Hopefully, the more predictable is time to plan tell Me Why and the assets a little bit more endurance, as I can feel life is Strange 2 came and went before it was really finished.
Microsoft Flight Simulator
I’m not much of a flight sim fan, but I’ll give the new Microsoft Flight Simulator has piqued my interest. Google Earth VR is one of my favorite virtual reality experiences, and the new Flight Simulator looks like a slightly more interactive version of the same. It uses to simulate Bing Maps, the whole of the earth, of the pretty damn cool from a technological point of view, and makes me want to do fly-bys of the house of my parents, or whatever. Places that you never see, rendered with this fidelity in a normal game.
Still, there is a new trailer. …Is a flight sim-one of my most anticipated games for the year 2020? It damn well could be.
Age of Empires IV
summary of the trailer, we got our first proper in-game look at Age of Empires IV. And there was not a change—or is it? I’m not sure. Last I heard, Age of Empires IV was supposed to be a relic-developed game, though, and now it is the directed by (according to the press release) “the newly named studio, World’s Edge.”
It looks like Age of Empires with the value of a decade of technological improvements. World’s Edge is confirmed, it is set in the medieval era, the same as a fan-favorite. Age of Empires II, and showed the Mongols and the English. The armies in this trailer look absolutely massive, as well, which makes me wonder how you deal with them in a real-time environment. They are grouped together, such as Total war? Hopefully, we will soon find out.
xCloud for PC
expand the Google-game-streaming-service stages starts next week, so it’s probably a good time for Microsoft to announce competing project xCloud platform for PC in the year 2020. Early xCloud tests are already run on phones, but I’m looking forward to a study that is more relevant to my own interests. There is also mention in the press release, “the collaboration with a variety of partners to make game-streaming available on other devices as well,” so cue the Nintendo switch rumors.
Oh, and the hell has frozen: Microsoft announced that you’ll soon play to be able to project xCloud games with a DualShock 4 PlayStation controller.
As for what you’re playing, Microsoft is sweetening the pot with 50-plus new games, including Devil May Cry 5 Shadow of the Tomb Raider Forza Horizon 4 and Madden 20. Due to the stages next week is due to start 12 games in total…well, Microsoft is a solid argument even before they are released xCloud is officially.
Xbox-Game-Pass for the PC
– And Xbox-game-Pass for PC search, is always convincing as well. There are a handful of new games today, including Age of Empires II-the Definitive Edition Hearts of Iron IV and The Talos principle. in The next few months look Packed, with highlights such as diverse Age of Wonders: Planet fall, the most Final Fantasys, raider My friend Pedro and SkateBIRD. The Xbox version of nbsp;The Witcher 3 and not the PC gets&that is a bit frustrating, but there is to justify much, the subscription I think.
Overall, a pretty impressive Xbox X019 for Microsoft. You can take it with top-X020? I hope so, given that the new consoles due to this time. The bar is set pretty damn high but.
