Fable is one of these showcase games. A fantasy monster. I haven’t seen it personally, but I got told it looks beautiful. They try to build the whole fantasy world with hand-crafted photogrammetry, yet the world will throw in a mix of procedural generation for bigger scale. Complete RPG systems in place, focus on great third-person fights and fluid animations. From the sounds of it, I expect the game to hit in 2022.
Big exclusive new IP coming from a Japanese studio. No further details known.
Halo Infinite has a huge open-world you can explore, yet the story missions themselves are linear to still be able to progress through the story in a more classic way. Optional exploration. It’s a much more ambitious campaign this time around, not your usual 6-9 hours Halo campaign. They are doing one very bold move for multiplayer, which will surprise people, but this move has the potential bring Halo MP back among the top played games on Xbox.
Microsoft’s Inside Xbox goes live on May 7th at 8AM PT / 11AM ET.
