With Microsoft talking about nearly fifty games in development on Sunday afternoon, there were some things that stood out to die-hard fans. Not only was there additions to many beloved series such as Halo and Gears of War, but there are bigger and better announcements that viewers may have missed. Here are some highlights from yesterday’s presentation:

Halo Infinite

This is the sixth edition in the Halo franchise, which to much excitement is set to bring beloved Master Chief to the games. The video announcement was all of the information given.

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red, the maker of  The Witcher 3, made a surprise appearance at Microsoft’s E3 keynote to show off its upcoming role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077.  The YouTube description states “Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future — Night City. You play as “V,” a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyber-enhanced street warriors, tech-savvy net-runners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.”

Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts III at long last has a release date! On January 29, after five long years of waiting, they are ready to delight fans not only on PlayStation, but for the first time ever on Xbox. In the trailer, you also saw characters from Monsters, Inc.Toy StoryTangled, and Frozen, each of whom star in their own respective worlds. These locations will each be new to the Kingdom Hearts series.

Fallout 76:

Fallout 76 is unique because unlike like the other games, the title is an online-only multiplayer experience arriving on November 14, 2018. This game is four times the size of Fallout 4 and set in the hills of West Virginia. As expected, it focuses on the years shortly after the bombs dropped.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

The studio that created the brutally unforgiving games Bloodborne, Dark Souls, and Demon Souls, Front Software has officially been announced. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is unique in the sense unlike Bloodborne and Dark Souls, due to the fact that instead of a more gothic-medieval feel, it is set in a more Asian-inspired setting.  However, many gamers can expect the punishing difficulty and brutal bosses that the developer is known to infuriate players everywhere.
