Games coming After Launch
The horror game The Medium will be releasing in December 2020. While not too much is known about the gameplay, some details on the story have been shared. Our Protagonist Marianne exists in two realities, the real world and the spiritual world, at the same time. The game will flip between the two worlds instantly using the new hardware.
Halo Infinite will be released sometime in 2021 after its delay from launch day. The game will follow Master Chief on his hunt for Cortana on a new Halo ring. 343 Industries has revealed that the multiplayer will be Free to Play when the game releases as well! Some gameplay was shown and we’re hoping that it’ll blow us away.
Microsoft shocked the world when they announced they were buying Bethesda for $7.5 billion. This includes franchises like Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Doom, and Wolfenstein. This also includes upcoming games like Starfield and the highly anticipated follow up to Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls VI. Once all the documents are signed, all Bethesda games will join Xbox Game Pass. The purchase is expected to complete sometime in 2021.
