Xbox Developer Direct revealed release dates and gameplay for Minecraft Legends, Redfall, Forza Motorsport and more.
Xbox Game Studios held a Developer Direct to showcase upcoming games for Xbox consoles, PC and Xbox Game Pass. The stream revealed release dates and new gameplay for Minecraft Legends, Redfall and Forza Motorsport – but also revealed a brand new game from the creators of The Evil Within called Hi-Fi Rush.
Here’s everything we saw at Developer Direct:
Minecraft Legends (April 18)
Minecraft’s latest spin-off is shaping up to be a pretty fun survival game. This new game comes with all the familiar visuals and mobs of Minecraft, but combines them all with an action-strategy game. The game has a narrative co-op mode where players must work together with Minecraft mobs to fight a piglin invasion of the Nether, as well as a PvP mode where they must attack other players’ bases and defend their own. The second mode involves building defenses and planning attacks similar to StarCraft.
Forza Motorsport (2023)
The Forza franchise has consistently delivered some of the most visually stunning racing games, and Forza Motorsport is no different. The new gameplay showcased in this developer livestream highlighted all the graphical detail included in Motorsport, from environments with “ten times the detail” of previous entries to fully dynamic time and weather. Developer Turn 10 claims that players will be able to race on tracks with ray tracing enabled at 60fps, which would be a pretty amazing technical feat for a game that looks so good on consoles.
If Sunset Overdrive were a rhythm action game, it would be Hi-Fi Rush. This colorful single-player game comes from Tango Gameworks, creators of The Evil Within horror game franchise – marking a change of tone for the studio. You play as Chai, an aspiring rockstar who has a music player fused to his chest and a cyborg cat on his shoulder. With the help of a motley crew of allies, Chai must fight through rhythmic battles using music from rock bands like Nine Inch Nails and the Black Keys.
This game is also out today! It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass.
Redfall (2 mai)
Arkane Studios has built quite a reputation after delivering addictive first-person shooters like Prey, Dishonored and Deathloop. The developer claims that its new open-world vampire game Redfall is its biggest game yet, which is interesting in itself. This is a Borderlands-like four-player co-op game that has players fighting to free the city of Redfall from an ongoing vampiric invasion. Arkane plays to its strengths by giving players a rich world to explore, a variety of abilities to use, and freedom of choice in how they want to accomplish their goals. The game can also be played solo, in case you prefer not to use multiplayer on this one.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom (iunie)
The Elder Scrolls Online is getting a new expansion this year, introducing a brand new class called the Arcanist and a new peninsula to explore in Morrowind. Starting today, there will also be a new free trial for ESO Plus, including all previous expansions (minus High Isle) and DLC for anyone who owns the base game. This includes anyone who picks up the game on Game Pass.
