After announcing the new Xbox One X at its E3 press conference Sunday, Microsoft jumped straight into the games that you’ll be able to play in the coming months (and years). The company showed off 42 games that are coming to Xbox — 22 of which are console exclusives. Here are 10 of the hottest trailers from the big show.
Metro Exodus (2018)
The surprise follow-up to the sleeper-hit series, Metro Exodus presents an intense journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in a story-driven shooter inspired by the sci-fi novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky.
Assassin’s Creed Origins (October 27)
The long-running franchise is going all the way back to ancient Egypt and the beginnings of the Assassin’s Brotherhood. What it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for in exciting action.
Sea of Thieves (early 2018)
Rare’s ambitious shared-world multiplayer pirate game looks like a rollicking good high-seas adventure.
The Artful Escape (when it’s damn ready)
I have no idea what is happening, but I am here for it.
The Last Night (2018)
Blade Runner meets pixel art in this stunning cinematic 2D platformer.
Cuphead (September 29)
The long-delayed action-platformer that looks like a 1930s cartoon is (finally!) just mere months away.
Crackdown 3 (November 7)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Terry Crews stars in the bombastic superheroic action game that is all about collecting beautiful, shiny, precious, glowing orbs… and blowing up stuff.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (October 10)
The follow-up to the hit 2014 Lord of the Rings game expands on the already impressive Nemesis system with even more ways to dominate orcs.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps (TBD)
The sequel to the fantastic but infuriating Ori and the Blind Forest looks even more gorgeous and will probably be even more difficult.
EA is taking on Destiny with this impressive-looking shared-world action-RPG from the creators of Mass Effect.
