No hints on Halo at E3, sounds like it won't be there but you never know -
This coming week, the eyes of the greater gaming world will be firmly fixed upon southern California, where the 2018 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo will make its annual assault on our timelines, subscription feeds, and sanity. As a proud member of the Xbox family, we of course encourage everyone to tune in to the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing on Sunday, June 10 at 1pm PT to cheer on our platform partners as everyone strives to bring a little bit of joy to each and every game fan in attendance.
Of course, as a Halo fan the most advantageous place to catch all the action will be at mixer.com/Xbox, where doing so will grab you a pretty sweet Halo 5 treat: The Classic Helmet REQ Pack. That’s right, the coveted cranium collection is back, and you can nab it for the low, low price of tuning in to the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing while logged in to your Gamertag on Mixer. Not a bad deal at all, eh? For more Mixpot info, head HERE.
To sweeten the E3 week up a little more, from Sunday-Thursday (June 10-14), log in to Halo 5: Guardians each day to receive a daily Platinum REQ Pack. Do the same in Halo Wars 2 for double free daily Blitz Packs. It’s our little way to help take part in a week focused on gaming celebrations – see you online!
Apart from FH4 i'm looking forward to more back compatability stuff, one can dream that they go "every OG xbox and 360 game now playable on xbone, enjoy!" but that is unlikely. They have got to bring something big after cancelling scalebound and delaying crackdown again. I'll definitely watch on mixer to get that interesting looking indie game though.
Looking forward to this one, what is everyone expecting to see?
Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay No Man’s Sky multiplayer gameplay Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay Mortal Kombat 11 reveal Rocksteady’s new game reveal Battlefield 5 story gameplay Forza Horizon 3 reveal Fable reveal Remedy’s new IP reveal From Software new game gameplay
Also something from Capcom, either a new Dead Rising or the first look at REmake 2 (DMC5 will be at Sony surely.)
It feels like Xbox is a "wounded animal" at the moment... and now is the time for it to fight back! I'm pretty excited about their presentation; they need to step things up and surprise us. I have been very impressed by their backwards-compatibility approach and perhaps they could build on this; they're already way ahead of Sony and Nintendo on this front.
I wonder if the X will receive a significant price cut? £450 feels too much now... would a £329 price point be possible?
