    [dropcap]M[/dropcap]icrosoft kicked off their E3 presence today with a 2-hour conference showing off games coming to the Xbox One in the next couple of years. The Xbox E3 2017 Briefing was a never-ending flow of trailers and gameplay. Although it ended after a little less than two hours, so you know…

    Despite that, they actually chose to start by revealing Project Scorpio properly. It’s actually called the Xbox One X and it’ll be dropping in stores on November 7th for $499. It’s capable of playing games in 4K resolution and the console itself is Microsoft’s smallest one yet. Aside from that, they also announced the Xbox One S will be available for $249 next week. Finally, Microsoft also explained that their backwards compatibility service would be expanding. Now we’ll be able to play games from the original Xbox on the Xbox One, as well.

    Xbox E3 2017 Briefing Project Scorpio

    The Xbox One X is surprisingly slim for an Xbox.


    After revealing the Xbox One X, Microsoft starting talking games, and this took up almost the entire conference. Phil Spencer took great pride in telling us that we’d see 42 games in total and that’s exactly what we saw. Some got more attention than others, but there was plenty to see, complete with availability details and release dates.

    Forza Motorsport 7

    To kick it off, Microsoft explained their partnership with Porsche and revealed a new game and a new car. Forza Motorsport 7 is your racing simulator complete with weather conditions, tons of tracks, and sweet car details. The game looks great and it’ll be exclusive to Xbox One, launching on October 3rd.

    Trailers Round 1

    Next, they showed a lineup of game trailers with the occasional developer delivering a few words. This kicked off with Metro Exodus, a post-apocalyptic nuclear fallout fantasy coming out in 2018. Assassin’s Creed Origins went next, taking place in Egypt and depicting the very beginning of the Assassin’s Brotherhood. AC Origins will launch on October 27th.

    The next group was totally rapid fire:

    • Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds — A massive multiplayer last-man-standing shooter. 100 player enter; only one leaves. It’s a timed exclusive, launching late this year.
    • Deep Rock Galactic — This looks like Team Fortress with dwarves. It’s exclusive to Xbox One, but no launch window was given.
    • State of Decay 2 — Zombie Apocolypse, a small team focusing on surviving and rebuilding. We’ve been here before. Comes out Spring 2018.
    • The Darwin Project — More last-man-standing combat. They dressed this one up like an e-sport. It looks a bit like Overwatch, though. Exclusive to Xbox One, but no release date

    Minecraft is getting two updates, this year. This Summer, they’ll be adding a community market and crossplay. Now you can play on the same servers with Switch, mobile, Xbox One, PC, or whatever you want. In the Fall, they’ll add a graphics pack and 4K resolution.

    Trailers Round 2
    • Dragonball Fighter Z — Want an anime fighter featuring Dragonball Z characters? Well, now you’ve got it! Again! Coming early next year.
    • Black Desert — An Xbox One exclusive MMORPG that’s coming early, next year.
    • The Last Night — This is a super artsy game made by Raw Fury. This will launch on Xbox One first, but we weren’t given a date.
    • The Artful Escape — So is he imagining all of this, ooooor…? Launching on the X1, first. “Coming when it’s damn well ready.”
    • Code Vein — Looks like Dark Souls with a few extra heaping helpings of anime. It’s coming next year.
    Sea of Thieves

    Rareware has been working on a little open world (open seas?) MMO featuring pirates. They had a fun little gameplay demo up with some humorous banter that made the preview a little more fun. We got to see the crew tracking down treasure in a sunken ship and on a far away island. They were heading back to a market to cash it in but got ambushed by another crew. The game looks fun, but we’ll need to see more genuine gameplay to be sure. The narrator even made jokes about it being scripted.

    Look at this doofus holding up the map backwards. Works better for me, I guess.

    Trailers Round 3
    • Tacoma — Launching first on Xbox One. It’s kinda like Gone Home, but on a space station. Coming August 2nd.
    • Super Lucky’s Tale — Conker, what have they done to you?! Oh, wait. You’re not Conker. Colorful 3D Platformer? Check. Coming out November 7th.
    • Cuphead — Is it still a boss rush game? Don’t know. Looks nifty. We have an article on that. Releasing exclusively on Xbox One on September 29th.
    • Crackdown 3 — It’s like Saints Row started trying to direct players more. Exclusive X1 release on November 7th.

    Yup! Microsoft showed off their indie support again. Most of these aren’t exclusive. We can’t tell if any of them are, actually. We’ll just list those quickly, below:

    • Osiris: New Dawn
    • Raiders of the Broken Planet
    • Unruly Heroes
    • Path of Exile
    • Battlerite
    • Surviving Mars
    • Fable Fortune
    • >OBSERVER_
    • Robocraft Infinity
    • Dunk Lords
    • Minion Masters
    • Brawlout
    • Ooblets
    • Dark and Light
    • Strange Brigade
    • Riverbond
    • Hello Neighbor
    • Shift
    • Conan Exiles
    The Home Stretch

    Microsoft was finally winding down after taking extensively about three games, going through three rounds of rapid-fire trailers, and giving us an indie sizzle reel showing off another 19 titles coming to Xbox One. They still had some news up their sleeve, though. The final act began with a trailer for Ashen, which looks like Dark Souls tried to go dressed in Overwatch’s art style. It’s exclusive, but there’s no release date.

    Then we got a trailer for Life Is Strange: Before the Storm. Episode 1 of this will be available on August 31st. Then they talked about the sequel to Shadows of Mordor, Shadows of War. This Lord of the Rings game will allow you to not only forge a unique story like its predecessor but will also let you take orcs into your own army. The gameplay looks sick, but the banter may have been a little TOO clean. We can only hope it’s like that in the actual game, which launches on October 10th.

    There was a gentle moment for the next trailer. The composer played the trailer music live on a piano. That’s how we were introduced to and moved by Ori and the Will of the Wisps. There was no gameplay, no launch window, or even anything regarding availability. We know nothing about the game, but a new Ori game can’t be a bad thing, can it?


    Now for the moment that EA’s audience has been on the edge of their seat for since yesterday. Anthem got a beautiful gameplay trailer. Bioware’s new IP plays much like we expected. It’s reminiscent of Mass Effect, but the focus seems to be on exploring and taking on missions in multiplayer. It feels a bit like an answer to Destiny in some ways, but we won’t likely see this game until after E3 2018.

    Xbox E3 2017 Briefing Final Thoughts

    This morning’s presentation was fast paced and exciting. New games came after new games and release dates were on a good chunk of it. Microsoft made a strong case for the Xbox One, today. However, they failed to interest anyone that doesn’t have a 4K television in the Xbox One X. At least, it seems that way to us.

    The Xbox E3 2017 Briefing delivered most on games. A whopping 42 titles were shown that would be coming to Microsoft’s console. We’re especially excited for Sea of Thieves, Super Lucky’s Tale, Cuphead, Shadows of War, and Ori. Let us know what you think in the comments, or if you haven’t watched it yet, check the video below for the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing. (The show starts at about 34:20 in the video below.)

    [dropcap]S[/dropcap]quare Enix has made some big announcements this week. After expressing their full support for Nintendo Switch, they have announced another game in direct competition to Harvest Moon, Pokemon and the beloved Animal Crossing. RE:LEGEND is a video game about farming, exploring, village management and just so much more.

    You will start the game by waking up washed ashore on the beach, with no memories. You will have to start a new life, and find ways to recover your lost memory. But before it gets to that you have to start cultivating the island, make friends with villages, expand the village, do some farming, fishing, planting and cutting down trees. It is up to you how you tackle the game. You will also be able to raise your very own magical creatures, this is is similar to Pokemon except instead of catching you can also raise them yourself.

    According to Square Enix the developer behind RE:LEGEND, the game focuses on 4 major features:

    • Farming(Grow crops on land/sea, keep fishes)
    • Tame and raise Magnus(Monsters)
    • Adventure(Story, Crafting, Fishing, Mining, Logging.etc)
    • Recruit NPC(Village expansion)

    RE:LEGEND Details

    You can play alone, but what is the fun in being lonely? You can invite up to 3 friends to play along with you in Multiplayer.

    Magnus are little magical creatures that roam around the island, you can tame everyone of them. They will aid you in different ways, and can be very useful for farming, fishing, traveling, in combat and more!

    They will also grow and evolve depending on your care, so each of them has unique evolution conditions. Once the Magnus has grown enough and you have gained their trust, you can mount them and use their abilities at will. These abilities will be helpful in your adventure in many ways so make sure to take good care of them!

    Square Enix re legend farming

    Vokka islands ground soil is as fertile as Hawaii and therefore perfect for cultivation and farming. You can do so on the ground or even underwater. You can plant different crops all year around with different kind of plants to be raised. Each season has it’s own crops, that once fully grown can be sold for in-game gold.

    You can fish, and all the fish you catch can be sold for gold, or you can even keep them in your own farm and watch them swim around in your pong or aquarium!

    Square Enix re legend fishing

    Whatever skill you want to master in the game, practice is the key! The more you exercise a certain the skill, the better you will get at it. If you fish a lot you, will start getting more and better fish. If you farm a lot, your farm skill will increase and crops will turn out better with a greater yield.

    Example of Living Skills:
    Mining, Fishing, Logging, Crafting, Farming, Weaponry and much more!

    Square Enix re legend vokka island
    Vokka Village is where your new life begins! Befriend local villagers and celebrate exciting festivals while having a good time together. Pay attention to their needs and help them out in their daily lives, and they will reward you accordingly.

    You can recruit more villagers into the village during your adventure, and having more villagers will expand the village. This will allow you to gain access to better resources, and who knows you might even be able to recover your lost memories?

    RE:LEGEND is currently in development for PC, a first gameplay trailer has been released and can be watched below. This game shares also a lot of similarities with Ooblets, you can read our interview with the Ooblets Developer here. We have recently mentioned that Square Enix has announced it’s full support for the Nintendo Switch, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a port of this video game on Nintendos new Console.
