Today, at the 2021 E3 Xbox and Bethesda showcase, we were given updates, DLCs, and announcements for 30 titles; some new, some old, and of course, Xbox exclusives.
Battlefield: 2042 – October 22
Battlefield 2042: Players go to the future with sci-fi weapons at their disposal, getting to fight against each other on seven large maps. With new dynamic events altering the weather, Battlefield 2042 has also doubled the multiplayer matches to 128-player matches, intended to make the battles even more epic.
Elder Scrolls Online: console enhancement – June 15
Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life for Me – June 22
Sea of Thieves, the multiplayer, action-adventure game has already taught us the essential pirate needs; how to sail, fight, explore and loot. Now, with the addition of Captain Jack Sparrow & Davey Jones coming to the world, we will once again have a chance to hoist the colours in the new Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life for Me.
Fallout 76: Steel Reign & The Pitt – July 7
Microsoft flight Sim: Top Gun – July 27
The Ascent – July 29
Halo Infinite – Fall 2021
Sunday at E3, we saw new footage of Master Chief+ flying his way through space and wrecked ships; it looks as though a battle has taken place. The trailer introduces us to a new mission; find a mysterious stranger who has saved his new AI (not the Cortana we know) from deletion. The sci-fi shooter, delayed last year, will launch this holiday season alongside its multiplayer.
Hades – August 13
Twelve Minutes – August 19
Psychonauts 2 – August 25
Diablo II: Resurrected – September 23
Forza Horizon 5 – November 9
There’s no doubt that Forza is already known for its visually appealing graphics, creative mini-games, and expansive storyline. Once again, it looks like they haven’t let us down. In Forza Horizon 5, we’re heading to Mexico! The Forza Horizon 5 team has spent extra time making sure that every aspect of the environment is as realistic as possible by 3D rendering the surroundings for stunning 4k gameplay and 12k skies.
Farcry 6 – October 7
Starfield – November 11-2022
A Plague Tale: Requiem – 2022
RedFall – summer 2022
Phil Spencer took the stage just once during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase, where he unveiled a world premiere Xbox exclusive called Redfall. This action-adventure, stealth, survival horror cinematic trailer gave us a sneak peek at this magical, multiplayer fantasy. It seems as though you get to choose from an array of characters, with different abilities to help survive this vampire-infested world.

I write about video games and have a current character level of at least 30 across any MMO RPG on the Xbox that I can get my hands on - although I'm currently making my way through the COD Cold War battle pass.
