As the sole Xbox owner on the gamehubs team, naturally I was chosen to cover the Microsoft briefing, here's all the things they announced for the event:
The briefing started out with a beautiful world of wildlife, seeing all kinds of animals in a world similar yet so alien to ours. Soon you see familiar marines on a shore, and a familiar super soldier looking on. Halo Infinite is the next big Halo game, Master Chief is back to kick some alien ass and stop anyone from activating the Halo rings again.
Phil Spencer announces 50 games, 18 exclusives, 15 new to the world. Ori and The Will of the Wisps kicks off the show, showing off the brand new action-platformer for Xbox One
