During E3 2018, Microsoft bombarded gamers with multiple ads, but which of those Xbox games will actually be available in 2019? Great expectations go to Gears 5 and the classic Battletoads. An upcoming Halo title is always expected by the owners of Xbox One, but no one has spoken about it so far.
Let’s go to the list of exclusive games for the Microsoft console for next year. It is worth remembering that some titles are also cross-platform with Windows PC. In the end, you also give cross-platform games, which can also reach the Xbox.
1. Gears 5
Gears of War is certainly one of the most iconic Xbox franchises and Gears 5 (not Gears of War 5) was enthusiastically received by fans in the last E3 2018. The game puts the player in control of Kait, which appeared by first time in Gears of War 4.
The protagonist now goes on a journey to try to decipher the meaning of the visions that so torment her. Part of these visions appear to be a consequence of the Locust collar, which she inherited from her grandmother.
2. Crackdown 3
Crackdown 3 will arrive in February 2019 and open the works of the year for the exclusive Xbox One. For multiplayer mode, the game will use a cloud server technology, which promises to allow a level of massive destruction and large-scale scenarios and enemies.
The title does not change much in the gameplay, compared to the predecessors, bringing different organizations that are with the control of the city New Providence. Its mission is to kill its leaders, to destroy the bases and, consequently, to weaken its structures. Crackdown 3 will also have portability for Windows PCs.
The high point of this game so far? It is certainly actor Terry Crews as Commander Jaxon.
3. Ori and the Will of the Wisps
The Moon Studios developer game, which arrives for both Xbox One and Windows PC, is a sequel to the also exclusive “Ori and the Blind Forest.” The new game, which has no set date yet to be released, brings a platform gameplay and storyline that promises to be engrossing, just like the predecessor. Visually, Ori and the Will of the Wisps somewhat resembles the Trine franchise.
Battletoads marked a generation in the era of the late Super Nintendo. Now the warrior frogs are back! Unfortunately, no gameplay was shown when the new game was unveiled at E3 2018. However, it is already known that it will have cooperative mode and graphics in 2.5D.
Session, as the trailer below shows well, is a skateboard simulator that even participated in a campaign on the Kickstarter collective funding site earlier this year. Not much is known yet about how the gameplay will be, but the game should please those who enjoy the sport.
