All the big Xbox announcements from the Game Awards

Last night saw Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards take place in Los Angeles. The big winner, to no one’s surprise, was Red Dead Redemption 2 taking home four awards. In fact, the biggest award shock was probably God of War pipping Red Dead to the game of the year prize. Alongside the awards, we got a load of game announcements and new trailers, here are the biggest Xbox related announcements and trailers.


New Crackdown trailer

The brilliant Terry Crews keeps being pushed front and center for all of the Crackdown 3 promotional material. And this new trailer is no different, with not one but two Terry Crews’ at the heart of the trailer. This video is disappointingly light on gameplay, a bit of a concern with the game only a few months away. If you love Terry Crews, though, you’ll love the trailer which you can check out below –


Forza Horizon 4 DLC trailer

Forza Horizon 4 had a good night at The Game Awards. As well as (correctly) winning the award for best sports/racing game the trailer for the first expansion pack was shown. We already knew that the area was called Fortune Island, featured lightning and the northern lights, and would launch on 13th December. This was our first proper look at the area though with cars tearing through it. You can check out the trailer down below –


Winter of Arcade is coming

One of the big announcements from X018 was that Summer of Arcade was returning as Winter of Arcade. They also said that more details would be shared at The Game Awards and that’s what we got. We learned that the games featured will be Subnautica, Mutant Year Zero, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek, Ashen, Kingdom Two Crows, Desert Child, Below and Donut County. What’s more, you will get a $5 gift card for each game you purchase after the first one. You can check out the announcement video down below –


New Anthem trailer introduces the bad guy

Bioware has a lot riding on Anthem. After the poor reception to Mass Effect: Andromeda, if Anthem turns out to be underwelming then questions will be asked about the developer. We’ll found out if they still have the magic touch when the game launches in just over a couple of months. In the meantime they have released a new trailer for the game that gives us more of the story as well as a look at the bad guy in the game. Check it out below –


Obsidian announce their new sci-fi RPG

Obsidian may have been bought by Microsoft but their next game is a multiplatform release. Releasing on PC, PlayStation 4,  and (of course) Xbox One their new RPG is The Outer Worlds. The sci-fi setting doesn’t look too far removed from their classic Fallout: New Vegas except things look a lot cleaner and shiny. The game is described as being from the minds of Tim Cain (creator of the Fallout series) and Leonard Boyarsky (lead world designer on Diablo III). You can check out the trailer for the game down below –


Mortal Kombat 11 announced

Mortal Kombat is a series that just keeps going and going. After some rocky entries in the middle of the franchise, it has come back with aplomb. Well the team at NetherRealm Studios are back with Mortal Kombat 11 and an appropriately bloody announcement trailer. The game is due out on 23rd April and you can check out the trailer down below –


Crash Team Racing remake announced
2018 has been a great year for Crash Bandicoot fans. Earlier this year we got the Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy which remastered the original games. Well, if you liked that then you’ll probably love Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled which is a remastered version of the old Crash kart racer. you can check out the announcement trailer down below –


Rage 2 gets a release date
Rage 2 is looking more and more like a good time. Despite being the sequel that no one was asking for, the more we see the game, the more we’re interested. You can see Avalanche Studios all over this as it looks like the perfect blend of Mad Max and Just Cause. The latest trailer for the game not only shows some of the open world gameplay but also reveals that the game will launch on 14th May. You can cehck the video down below –


Hello Games announced The Last Campfire
Hello Games has done a great job of restoring their crediblity after the initial release of No Man’s Sky. They’re hoping to continue their rehabilitation with their latest offering The Last Campfire. We know very little about the game but it’s said to have been inspired by Pixar Shorts so expect a much shorter experience. It’s being headed up by Chris Symonds and Steven Burgess who made LostWinds a puzzle platformer on Wii, so we imagine this game may stretch your brain in a similar way. You can check out the announcement trailer down below –


Typhoon Studios reveal Journey to the Savage Planet
This one seemed to come out of nowhere. Typhoon Studios was started by by Alex Hutchinson in 2017. While you may not recognise that name, he was the creative director on Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed 3 as well as an executive producer at Electronic Arts. Anyway, Journey to the Savage Planet is a first-person adventure where you embark on a voyage to an uncharted planet. You can check out the trailer down below –


New Far Cry game coming in couple of months
For anyone desperate for their next Far Cry fix after finishing Far Cry 5 ealier this year, they’ll be excited to know about Far Cry: New Dawn. The game takes up the story 17 years after the end of Far Cry 5 and sees you playing in a post-apocalyptic version of Hope County. With the game launching on 15th February we imagine that this will be similar in size to Far Cry Primal. Anyway, you can check out the announcement trailer for the game down below –
