MICROSOFT XBOX E3 2017 Press Conference Highlights

Last night was the second Press Conference of E3 2017, featuring game reveals and news from Microsoft. If you missed the IGN Pre- and Post- Conference talks as well as the press conference, you can watch the saved streams on Pulse Entertainment here.

There were so many trailers for the 40 odd games coming out this and next here, so I will just be showcasing each one without a lengthy talk about them (pretty much what Microsoft did at the Xbox stadium anyway). Here are some highlights from the show. Videos are compliments of GAMESPOT.

Please note: some videos are meant for a mature audience


XBOX ONE X CONSOLE / PROJECT SCORPIO


XBOX ONE X Brings Backward Compatibility with a super Scorpio systems that is meant to put all current gaming consoles to shame.


FORZA 7


The new Xbox One X power is shown off with Forza 7 and introducing a new Porsche as a world premiere, not only in-game but at the show itself.


ANTHEM


Bioware's new I.P. is finally revealed.


ASSASSIN'S CREED: ORIGINS


After the supposed leaks of shirts and logos and heroes, here is the announcement trailer at last. New graphics, same old Assassins.


CRACKDOWN 3


Actor Terry Crews from... well, a hellava lot of movies and series, stars in the announcement of this game. Big guns (literally) and big guns (muscles) show off what is to be expected.


DRAGONBALL FIGHTER Z


This new installment to the Z franchise brings with it upgraded graphics and extended gameplay with 3 vs 3 fighting

There are some new precious wraith abilities. You can now summon your own army by recruiting orcs with your powers and taking the war to Sauron's fortresses with the Dark Lord's own creatures.

Let me spare a moment to thank the Universe for another glorious zombie survival game. This one looks rather intense, making me wonder what the first installment was like.
