Microsoft had its big E3 showcase today to show off everything Xbox, and it wasn't short on big reveals. If you've been constantly putting off an XBox One purchase, this could be the game to finally break you.

Microsoft's Phil Spencer at E3.

Earlier this year, Scotland was added as part of an expansion of strategy game Civilisation 6.

At its E3 event, Microsoft shined a spotlight on upcoming Xbox One games from third-party publishers. As someone whose console is collecting dust due to a lack of foresight or ambition from Microsoft, this barrage of exciting news could just make a true fan of me again.

Halo Infinite Announced At Xbox's E3 Briefing
The teaser also shows a Warthog, the beloved offroad vehicle from previous " Halo " games, as well as a quartet of people. Halo Infinite will be a new Halo experience centered on the Master Chief that continues the current storyline.

It brings Undead Labs, Playground Games, Ninja Theory, and Compulsion Games into Microsoft Studios. Spencer said Microsoft is "dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play; your Xbox, your PC and your phone". The new game arrives in October and will have players racing across the roads of Great Britain, with an all new dynamic seasons system in place. With Microsoft's backing, the new studios, will have the resources to "take bigger risks" and "create bigger worlds", he said.

It's likely that Infinite has been in development for some time-ditto for the Slipspace Engine-but Microsoft and 343i haven't officially confirmed or announced anything up until now.

The briefing began with the iconic Master Chief watching on as teams of soldiers drove Warthog jeeps across a ring planet in a tease for the new Halo game being developed by 343 Industries.

They weren't lying. No fewer than three new Gears of War titles were revealed. It will also be available on the day of release to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. That's especially true given the company's recent focus on the cloud and the abandonment of the phone hardware market.
