Microsoft has held another Inside Xbox event dedicated to the company’s plans in regards to E3 2019. Besides, the company made a few major announcements, but there was nothing really surprising.
First of all, Microsoft officially confirmed the recent rumours regarding the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which contains both Xbox Live and Xbox Games Pass services. It will cost Xbox users $14.99 a month thus resulting in saving around $5 in comparison to separate use of both subscriptions. The offer will go live later this year.
Microsoft has also once again reiterated that it’s working on a cloud-based service called xCloud, which is going to be compatible with PCs, consoles, and mobile devices. The closed testing is expected to start closer to the Holiday season, and we are about to hear specific details at E3 2019.
Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was another officially confirmed rumour. It is simply a usual Xbox One S console, but without an optical drive. The device will go on sale starting with May 7 and will cost you $249. The console comes with pre-installed copies of Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft, and Sea of Thieves. Besides, the future customers will have the chance to make a 3-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass for just $1.
The multiplayer mode for Gears 5 will make its debut at the Gears ELEAGUE Summer Series tournament, which starts on June 14. The best professional Gears players will demonstrate all the changes and improvements while also testing their skill.
The list of Xbox One X Enhanced games with backwards compatibility was expanded with the addition of the following titles:
- Ninja Gaiden 2
- Fable 2
- Fable 3
- Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent
- Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction
- Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist
There wasn’t much in terms of new trailers, and all we got was the newest video for the huge update for Sea of Thieves along with the developers’ diaries from Respawn Entertainment where the members of the studio discussed the process of how Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was created. Sadly, no gameplay this time either.
Microsoft will return with its press-conference at E3 2019 on June 9, 22:00 CEST.
