Along with the unveiling of the next-gen Xbox One, Microsoft showed off a handful of games: some classic updates, some all-new.
The most anticipated reveal was for Call of Duty: Ghosts, but along the way, they gave us a few other surprises, including a game called Quantum Break that apparently includes live action drama inter-cut with gameplay. At least that’s what I think it was. All we know is that a little girl has powers, they’re probably time-based, and she can crash ships into bridges on a whim. Also, actress Lili Taylor is in it.
Sports! Sports! Sports! – No, not the Huey Lewis and the News album (ask your parents – again).
The Forza Motorsport 5 trailer was essentially car pr0n with slo-mo shots of sleek and sexy cars shown off in incredible detail. Xbox debuted a new partnership with the NFL to enhance how we watch games on our TVs (via Xbox, ‘natch) and on the sidelines. How that will work remains to be seen, but here’s hoping it will be implemented at launch, which will likely be in the heart of American football season. EA showed off their Ignite Engine, which allows an unprecedented level of realism to their next series of games, including Madden, NBA, UFC, and FIFA.
What surprisingly had no footage whatsoever was the announcement of a live action HALO TV series exclusive to Xbox One, produced in part by Steven Spielberg, who spoke to the audience via a pre-recorded message.
So in case you missed them, here are all of the video clips featured at today’s Xbox One unveiling event…
