Breakdown of the E3 2017 ID@Xbox Montage

Runtime: 1:49    Author: Xbox    Category: Trailers

Played during the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing was an ID@Xbox montage video that showcased a host of titles that are coming to the Xbox One family. The video features a whopping total of thirty of the forty-four titles that Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer mentioned would be shown during the conference.

With the speed at which each game clip passed by on-screen, I thought I'd take a bit of a longer look, and let you know exactly which games were announced, and see if I can't get a little more information about them for you. Some were already known, and some were new, but regardless of that, here is the complete list of games that were shown during the video, in the order that they appeared:

(United Nations of Earth) to study potential habitable planets when your spacecraft malfunctions braking from light speed, forcing an emergency landing on the planet’s surface.

Overcome the dangers of an environment with ever-changing weather conditions by building a central base, expanding the structure further with modular units to grow food, create research centers, manufacturing bays and more. To further advance technologies and thrive on the planet, traverse into a world filled equally with alien beauty and terrors that will freeze your blood. Osiris is a beautiful game that uniquely combines inventive crafting, curious exploration, and skillful FPS combat gameplay that highlights the beauty and horror of exploring a foreign, yet gorgeous alien system - an experience that's neither safe nor for the timid.

So that gives you a bit more of an idea of the titles that Microsoft showed off during their ID@Xbox montage. Not all of these games are releasing this year, and many of them are already either available in some form of early access, or will be releasing to multiple platforms, but at least now we know a bit more about the titles that are coming to the Xbox One over the coming years.

The Darwin Project really screwed the pooch on its E3 trailer by having a shoutcaster. If they had a commentator that's less "intense" then it could have received better

Yeah man, it was sandwiched right there between >observer_ and Fable Fortune :)

Personally, out of all of these games I'm most psyched for The Last Night, and Surviving Mars.

Titles I'd like to at least check out would be... hmmmm.... Osiris: New Dawn, and The Darwin Project look interesting, and I'm keen to see which has the better solo experience between Dark and Light, and Black Desert :)
