Best of Gamescom 2014: Microsoft Edition


This week Microsoft held a conference at Gamescon. this conference sparked outcry and has become the topic of conversation among the gamer community. Microsoft focused on the Xbox One and the games that revolved around their next gen console, however this conference only really confirmed on what we had been told at E3 earlier this year: it's all about the games. So lets jump in!

The Rise of Tomb Raider

Our favorite action hero has returned, as an Xbox EXCLUSIVE!  This news sparked outcry aimed at Square Enix for making this decision, especially since at E3 it was shown to be available on all consoles. Whether Square withdraws that decision later this year remains to be seen. This game is scheduled to be released in 2015. Personally I think that this was a stupid mistake by the developers as there are many Tomb Raider fans that don't own an Xbox and, being one of them, I don't intend to.

Halo 5: Guardians/Master Chief Collection

Halo 5 is another game that has been highly anticipated, Halo 5: Guardians and is teased to be the most epic installment in the series. We are also expected to see some of our favorite Halo 2 multi player maps in will be available in the Master Chief Collection! If you want to keep up to date, Microsoft has launched a new Halo Channel on their website, so take a look at that. 

Xbox Bundles

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is getting a bundle! It will include the game, a 1TB Xbox One with a gray and black surface and golden emblem, plus a headset , while another bundle, the FIFA 15 Ultimate Bundle, will include an Xbox One and a copy of FIFA 15! Lastly is the rumored Sunset Overdrive bundle, which includes the game and the new white Xbox One.

Indie Games

Also some indie games have been previewed for Xbox. PC MOBA Smite, time-bending shooter Super Hot, the amazing Goat Simulator and Minecraft-in-space game Space Engineers will all be coming to consoles for the first time on the Xbox One! It will be interesting to see how these PC games will adapt to life on the Xbox, especially a MOBA like Smite!

Trailers

Lastly, some new trailers have been previewed. Assassins Creed Unity got another gameplay trailer, as well as exclusives Fable Legends, a reveal trailer for the new Quantum Break and some more gameplay for Sunset Overdrive.

Well that's it on the reveals and highlights! Personally I am most excited for the Halo 5: Guardians; being a huge Halo fan myself, I am exited for any new content in the franchise!
