Microsoft started their E3 2017 press conference with the Xbox One X, previously called Project Scorpio. Before a number of surprise announcements starting with a real world Porsche that’ll feature in Forza Motorsport 7. Followed by PC phenomena PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds launching exclusively on the Xbox One, a release date for animated platformer Cuphead, a three episode prequel to Life is Strange, and a Crackdown 3 trailer starring Terry Crews.
We also got a look at the first gameplay of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, BioWare’s new sci-fi action RPG Anthem, Rare’s open sea pirate game Sea of Thieves, and a very nice looking lighting upgrade for Minecraft.
There were, alas no Halo or Gears of War this year.
