Xbox and Bethesda have teamed up to show what they have in store for the next few months.

Xbox and Bethesda treated everyone to a special showcase today, showcasing some of the highly anticipated titles coming to Xbox and PC over the next few months. During the show we got more insights into titles like Redfall, Minecraft Legends and Forza Motorsport, while Ghostwire: Tokyo developer Tango Gameworks surprised everyone with the shadow cast of one of the most stylish games of the year. If you missed the show, you can read everything that was announced below.

Minecraft Legends will be released on April 18, 2023

To kick things off, Mojang Studios gave us an enhanced gameplay trailer for Minecraft Legends, showing the mechanics of the game’s base building, as well as a variety of different features including procedurally generated maps and a PvP mode. More importantly, Mojang also announced that Minecraft Legends will be coming to PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch later this year on April 18 with a day-one launch on Xbox Game Pass.


Forza Motorsport advertises over 500 cars to collect

Next up was Turn 10 Studios, which gave us a closer look at Forza Motorsport. While we weren’t given a specific release date – instead we’ve opted to keep the current 2023 release window – we’ve been given more details and a general idea of ​​how ambitious the title will be. Forza Motorsport will feature a single-player career mode alongside an online racing mode, over 500 cars to collect, 20 different environments to race in, and dynamic weather in what Turn 10 describes as the “most technically advanced” racing game ever.

Hi-Fi Rush is the next game from Tango Gameworks to be released today

Ghostwire: Tokyo and The Evil Within developer Tango Gameworks also had an announcement to make, and despite the game leaking a day before the showcase, it still managed to surprise pretty much everyone who watched it. Known for its scarier titles, Tango shocked everyone by announcing Hi-Fi Rush, a colorful action-adventure/rhythm game that puts you in the role of wannabe rock star Chai. Better yet, it’s playable now that Tango throws one of the biggest shadows the industry has ever seen.

Redfall release date announced, launching May 2nd

Arkane Studios also had an anticipated appearance with its upcoming vampire-slaying game Redfall. Along with a deep dive into new gameplay footage, we’ve also finally received the announcement of a release date, as Redfall has now been confirmed to release on May 2nd for both Xbox Series X and PC. The gameplay footage previously shown gave us another look at the Redfall village where the game takes place, as well as character abilities, vampires that you must defeat, and crafted locations that will help tell Redfall’s story.

Finally, Bethesda itself took center stage with the unveiling of a new expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online. The upcoming Necrom expansion and DLC Scribes of Fate gives players the chance to revisit Morrowind for the first time since 2017 as they are tasked with defeating the Scribes of Mora. The Scribes of Fate DLC is scheduled for release on March 13th for PC and March 28th for consoles, while the Necrom expansion launches in June later this year and introduces a new playable class called the Arcanist.
