1. Halo Infinite
Starting the show with a jaw dropper, we had Halo Infinite. We know very little about this and wonder if it's a sequel, prequel or even a spin off. Some have speculated this could be Halo Battle Royale but we'll have to wait and see.
2. Ori and the Will of the Wisps
A sequel to the smash hit indie game Ori and the Blind Forest is finally coming to Xbox One and PC. This games looks absolutely beautiful and seems to remain very faithful to the originals core design and gameplay.
3. Serkio: Shadows Die Twice
From Software's new Dark Souls clone is finally here and it looks epic! We finally get to see these talented designer tackle their style of gameplay with new dynamics, including new methods of traversing the environment with a brand new setting and mythos. We can't wait to find out more!
4. Crackdown 3 trailer
It's been in development hell for the last three years but it's nearing ever so closer to release. Stated for early 2019, Crackdown 3 features massive amounts of destruction and the voice talent of the awesome Terry Crews! Check out the trailer and get hyped for what coudl be Microsoft's best exclusive.
5. Additional content for Cuphead and Sea of Thieves
Both of these Xbox exclusives will see new content arriving later in the year and early 2019 with Cuphead's story expansion, featuring new levels and bosses. Then the arrival of two story expansions for Sea of Thieves entitled Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores. Plenty of new and epic content for these heavy weights.
6. Devil May Cry 5
While not an exclusive, the world premier of Devil May Cry 5 came out at Microsoft's press conference. What we saw was the return of Nero as he battled vast amounts of demons in the streets of London. It looked insanely good and we can't wait (as we have been doing so since Devil May Cry 4 over ten years ago now).
7. New Battletoads game coming 2019
Yes, that's right people. Battletoads is finally returning to us after two whole decades! We can wait and even though we didn't see gameplay, we've been promised three-player "couch co-op" and will naturally take advantage of 4K on an Xbox One X. The teaser clip made a not-so-subtle nod to the original NES title's notoriously difficult vehicle segment. Well, we can prepare ourselves for the epic challenge that awaits us.
8. Forza Horizon 4
Another Forza is inbound for the Xbox One and it looks amazing! This new Forza Horizon takes place in the Mary land of Britain and showcases dynamic weather and dynamic season changes which alters the terrain and your journey. It looks amazing and we urge you to check out the trailer.
9. Gears 5 with Gears Tactics and Gears Funko Pops Mobile
We're getting three new Gears games with a brand new mobile game featuring Funk Pop version of the Gears cast along with a RTS style, Isometric tactical shooter called Gears Tactics. But the big reveal was of Gears 5, the next chapter in the beloved franchise, which sees a desperate struggle brewing between the COGs as the planet Sera faces it's biggest war yet. Get ready for more epci action from Microsoft's best selling franchise.
10. Cyberpunk 2077
There was a surprise at the end of the show with CD ProjectRed showcasing their latest trailer for Cyberpunk 2077. The trailer looked impressive and even with no gameplay present, we're still hyped to see this in action. No confirmed release date as of yet but we'll find out more this week.
