The Xbox Games Showcase live stream earlier today have given us more of what to expect from games coming to the Xbox Series X. The presentation showcased a bunch of titles including Halo Infinite and more.

Keep in mind that all of the games listed below are from both first-party and third-party developers, which means that some of them will also be released on other platforms like the PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, or PC as well.

Check out every game from the Xbox Games Showcase 2020 below:

Halo Infinite

The first Halo Infinite gameplay confirms the grappling hook, which can be used to grapple items and even enemies. Player will also have the freedom to explore the world map in the game, all in 4K and 60FPS. According to the devs at 343, this Halo game playground will be just as big as two Halo games combined.

Halo Infinite studio head Chris Lee revealed that this game will be the last standalone release for the franchise for the foreseeable future.

“Halo Infinite is the start of our platform for the future. We want Infinite to grow over time, versus going to those numbered titles and having all that segmentation that we had before. It’s really about creating Halo Infinite as the start of the next ten years for Halo and then building that as we go with our fans and community.”

For you multiplayer Halo fans out there, fret not: Halo Infinite will feature 4-player split-screen co-op/competitive, and Halo Reach levels of customization.

It is slated to release for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in Holiday 2020.

Publisher Microsoft and developer Undead Labs have announced State of Decay 3 for the Xbox Series X and PC. If it’s anything like the previous entries, it’ll be an action-adventure survival horror game with multiple protagonists. And hopefully less bugs than the last game.

A release date has yet to be announced.

Forza Motorsport

Xbox Games Showcase

Publisher Microsoft and developer Turn 10 Studios have announced Forza Motorsport for the Xbox Series X and PC. Looks just like what you would expect from a Forza racing game, though it may have more options than your Gran Turismos.

A release date has yet to be announced.

Everwild is a brand new IP from developer Rare coming to the Xbox Series X and PC. Sure looks pretty, though we have no idea what kind of game it’ll be. Maybe an adventure game with multiple playable characters and some animal-saving/rearing mechanic ala Viva Pinata, but more dramatic & serious?

A release date has yet to be announced.

Screenshot (870)

Developed by GSC Game World, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will release for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC as a console launch exclusive.

A release date has yet to be announced. So far, the first-person action-adventure game features a fully open-world The Zone to explore, a A-Life 2.0 system which influences the state of the world, characters and mutants even if the player isn’t present, and branching story with multiple endings. It’s essentially GSC’s biggest game to date.

Basically, it’s what the Far Cry games would be if they’re actually difficult and nerve-wracking. And with a post-apocalyptic palette. The first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was a cult classic for a good reason: it’s an immersive and challenging survival game before games like Day Z, Don’t Starve, and so forth popularized that term.

Warhammer 40,000 Darktide

Fatshark has announced Warhammer 40,000: Darktide for the Xbox Series X and PC via Steam. It will launch sometime in 2021. It’s essentially Warhammer: Vermintide -four-player co-op FPS action ala Left 4 Dead– but with a sci-fi 40K aesthetics. It’s essentially from the same team too.

The Gunk

Thunderful Publishing and developer Image & Form Games have announced The Gunk for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (Microsoft Store) during the Xbox Games Showcase. It will launch in September 2021.
