A fresh start for both the series and the developer 343 Industries. Halo Infinite was first intended to be launched in conjunction with Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, but will instead be released sometime in the fall of 2021. In other words, we have to endure a little longer until we get to experience new adventures with everyone’s Master Master, in a now completely open ring world.
Microsoft surprised a lot when they recently unveiled a new part in the popular role-playing game series Fable. So far, we only know that it is Playground Games, known for the Forza Horizon games, that are behind the development. A launch is probably far in the future, but we are already longing.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
British game studio Ninja Theory follows up the acclaimed Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice with a new adventure exclusive to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Although Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was one of the first games unveiled for the next generation of Xbox consoles, we know very little about layout or launch. However, the trailer promises well.
Resident Evil VIII: Village
After two eminent remakes of older Resident Evil games, Capcom is now ready to tackle the sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It also means that the first-person perspective is back, and with it the former protagonist Ethan. We do not yet know much about the story, other than that we explore a snow-covered village full of zombies, werewolves and a couple of previously familiar faces. Judging by the trailer, we can look forward to an adrenaline-filled experience in eerily beautiful and technically impressive environments.
A new part of Turn 10’s Forza series under development, specifically designed to take advantage of the power of the Xbox Series X. But just like the previously mentioned games from Microsoft Games Studios, the new Forza is also early in the development phase, and therefore we know not even when we are allowed to burn rubber again at the earliest.
The psychological horror game The Medium was started as early as 2012. But the developers at Bloober Team felt that the consoles of the time could not do their vision justice, whereupon the game was put on ice. Eight years and two console generations later, it’s soon to be released on Xbox Series X. And with a soundtrack signed by Akira Yamaoka, who previously made the music for the Silent Hill games, we know that the audiovisual will at least be on top.
The British gaming house Rare, which last released the pirate game Sea of Thieves, next offers a cozy adventure where nature is in focus. Colorful creatures and magical characters become, if possible, more fabulous through the “cell shading” technique used for graphics.
State of Decay 3
The State of Decay games may not be one of the technically impressive games for Xbox One, but the combination of zombies and the open world outweighed some of the flaws. And with new technology comes new opportunities. If the end product keeps everything the teaser trailer promises, we have an action-packed and adrenaline-inducing experience to look forward to.
A man in a spacesuit explores what appears to be a deserted New York City, when he sees a seemingly untouched girl. Suddenly, the whole of life is reversed when a satellite crashes “through” the environments. Is this a simulation or a distorted version of the post-apocalypse? The game seems to have been influenced by Hideo Kojima’s masterpiece Death Stranding as well as movies like Interstellar, a rather unique combination if we may say so ourselves.
Second Extinction is something as odd as a fps where we shoot down different types of mutated dinosaurs in a post-apocalyptic world. The approach is to put together teams where each character contributes different skills to hopefully free the world from its new tyrants. Doom meets Jurassic Park, anyone?
