As promised, Microsoft delivered a number of new trailers during their Gamescom event this afternoon, including a couple never before seen ones. Games from Assassin’s Creed: Origins to ReCore: Definitive Edition, it seems that there was something from many different genres.
We’ve compiled them all for you below in one, handy-dandy little spot. Take a look and let us know which one impressed you the most.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Set to release on October 27th, 2017, Assassin’s Creed: Origins got a new cinematic trailer released during Gamescom. No actual gameplay was shown, but we did get a look at some historical figures included in the game. Cleopatra herself makes an appearance.
Jurassic World Evolution
This is a tad underwhelming, unfortunately. Unlike the dinosaur adventure game many wanted, Jurassic World Evolution will instead cater to the simulator crowd. You will be able to create and organize your very own version of the dinosaur amusement park equipped with electric fences, rides and monorails. The trailer doesn’t show much, but we do get a look at a very detailed version of a park while security goes off to resecure a loose dino.
No release date is available yet, but it is scheduled to release on Xbox One sometime in 2018.
ReCore: Definitive Edition
The game will be free for existing owners of ReCore, which is also added to the Xbox Games Pass. It will release on August 29th, 2017 on Xbox One, with those who don’t already own the game having to pay full price. The highly anticipated Tank DLC bot has been added to the game, as well as all new story content. If you finished ReCore’s story mode, this may be just what you need to get back into it and secure all those optional items.
World of Tanks
Announced for Xbox One X, the game will have fully optimized 4K graphics and 60 FPS. There will be cross play functionality allowing all players to go head to head regardless of the device they are playing on. It will be available the day Xbox One X launches on November 7th, and no other special features were announced.
A number of Id@Xbox games were announced in a single trailer, with games such as Path of Exile, Hello Neighbor, Unruly Heroes and more on display. Each one has a different release date and will be fully optimized for the Xbox One X. Also included on the list is Raiders of the Broken Planet, which is currently in open beta this weekend. Cuphead, which releases this September as an Xbox exclusive, also makes the cut. Check out all of them for what’s to come.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War
Set to release in October, Middle Earth: Shadow of War had a pretty intense trailer debut at Gamescom. It showed all the monsters we can expect to go up against in Mordor, as well as some we can control. It included both gameplay and cinematics, and it continues to impress before release. For the first time, the series will introduce a market place as well as online multiplayer aspects. It will also be fully enhanced for the Xbox One X.
Minecraft Xbox One S console
Available in full 4K, The first look at the Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition Bundle (1TB)! was revealed at Gamescom Featuring a custom designed grass block console, iconic green Creeper controller and Minecraft system sounds! Also included is a full game download of Minecraft, unique Minecraft skins, sounds and textures. It is available to order now.
Xbox One X Scorpio Edition
This will cost the same as the normal console at $499.99. In addition to the standard console, it will have a different finish, along with a controller engraved with the Scorpio Edition namesake. A stand as well as a one month subscription to Xbox Games Pass is also included.
Not much else was revealed, as Xbox took more of a Nintendo Treehouse approach to their Gamescom show. It was well organized and flowed pretty well. All of the information was relayed quite easily and smoothly, with nothing new other than Jurassic World: Evolution announced.
The Xbox One X is available for preorder now, and will release on November 7th, 2017.
