Last year's Microsoft conference had new hardware, Sea of Thieves, Crackdown, a new Forza and a host of curious additions. What will Microsoft bring to the E3 2018 table this time around? Let's find out.
Microsoft's annual event kicks off at 0600 AEST / 0530 ACST / 0400 AWST / 0800 NZST on Monday, June 11. It's the first of the two main days, with Bethesda rocking up around lunch time on the Monday (and Devolver following with ... well, whatever shenanigans they've got planned this year).
You can watch the conference through Twitch below:
If you'd rather give Mixer a go, however, that's here. It was pretty decent last year, and should be less congested than Twitch or YouTube.
As for the conference, here's what we know to expect:
- Sea of Thieves: Rare will show off more of the roadmap for this game, and given it's one of the biggest titles on the Xbox Game Pass I imagine Rare will continue to push heavily on this.
- A new Forza (probably Horizon): It's about time for Forza Horizon 4. Drifting in Japan will be nice. Maybe it'll be the NFS: Underground we've waited years for.
- Crackdown 3: Delayed, but we should get some more gameplay this time.
- The new game from Bohemia Interactive: They've announced that it's an Xbox exclusive, so should be neat to see what they've got cooking. Would be surprised if it wasn't another ArmA style game.
- Ori and the Will of the Wisps: This'll look gorgeous. I hope it gets more than a trailer this time around.
- Red Dead Redemption 2: The XBX is the strongest console graphically, and given that we know RDR2 will show up it makes sense that Xbox will show it off.
What are you expecting to see this year?
