E3: Microsoft Steps Into the Gap With Scarlett, xCloud, and Games

We review the weekend at E3, and the announcements you need to know.

· Web Dev Zone ·
Free Resource

This weekend was a whirlwind at E3 2019, with Microsoft bringing a wide array of games, Xbox Scarlett news, and xCloud information—albeit not enough on the latter two topics—Bethesda showing off DOOM: Eternal and a new game streaming framework, and Devolver Digital's par-for-the-course outlandish presentation.

Microsoft

Microsoft was the nearly-indisputable main event of the weekend, and while they did provide some information on Xbox Scarlett and Project xCloud, they did not provide much in the way of details. Although this was disappointing, Microsoft did announce an almost overwhelming number of games, including Gears 5 and Halo Infinite

Xbox Scarlett Announced

One of the most important announcements of Microsoft's E3 was the tease of the next-generation Xbox—codenamed Scarlett. While no images of Xbox Scarlett were shown, Microsoft announced that it would release in Holiday 2020 with Halo Infinite as a lunch title. According to the official announcement:

Unmatched power and speed ushers in a new level of game play performance and the future of gaming. With four generations of content that looks and feels unlike anything before. Launching with Halo Infinite Holiday 2020.

Microsoft also announced the following features for its new console:

  • Custom Zen-2 based AMD processor.
  • Navi-based Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) with real-time ray tracing and up to 120 frames per second (fps) and 8k resolution.
  • Graphics Double Data Rate (GDDR) 6 memory.
  • Solid State Drive (SSD) doubling as virtual Read-Only Memory (RAM).

According to Microsoft, the new processor is four times more powerful than the Xbox One X processor and the implemented SSD storage is forty times quicker in terms of transfer speeds over "existing technologies." These specifications are matched with the rumored PlayStation (PS) 5 hardware, which puts the two competitors on even footing—so far—in the next generation battle. Knowing this, Microsoft seems to be positioning its next console as one piece in its games as a service puzzle, with xCloud playing a major role in defining its future trajectory.

xCloud Teased

In the same fashion as its Scarlett announcement, Microsoft also teased its Project xCloud, which will be live in October of this year. No specifics about pricing were provided and no gameplay was shown at the E3 presentation, but we do know that gamers will be able to stream xCloud using two different mechanisms: (1) directly from their Xbox and (2) from Microsoft's datacenters. Additionally, Phil Spencer (Executive VP of Gaming at Microsoft) also invited those at E3 to "[Microsoft's] first public hands-on of Project xCloud." This likely means we will see some end-user assessment of how well the streaming service works—in terms of latency and response time—in the next few days.

In light of the Google Stadia showcase earlier in the week, this stands as a notable differentiator between Microsoft's answer and Stadia. Even so, it is a bit disappointing that Microsoft focused so little time on its streaming service and did not take the opportunity to reveal more information about xCloud.

Fluery of Titles Announced

Microsoft did not disappoint in terms of game volume with a barrage of new titles—some available immediately, some coming later in 2019, and some slated for 2020. While the number of games did not fall short, many are unimpressed with the lack of gameplay footage of major titles—specifically Halo and Gears—provided in the suite of trailers. Some of the most prominent titles announced include (from official Xbox Wire press release):

Title Description Release Date
Age of Empires: Definitive Edition

Other Announcements

Apart from strategic announcements, Microsoft also revealed some interesting products and features:

  • Xbox Game Pass comes to PC: Microsoft finally confirmed that Xbox Game Pass will be available on PC as a beta today. Game Pass for PC will cost $9.99/mo but is available for $1 for the first month and $4.99/mo during the beta phase. Microsoft also announced a new Xbox Game Pass level—Ultimate—that includes Xbox Live Gold, Game Pass for Xbox, and Game Pass for PC for $14.99/mo. To see a full list of games available on Games Pass on PC, see Windows Central.
  • Xbox Elite Controller Series 2: Microsoft announced that on Nov. 4, an updated Xbox Elite controller will be available for $179.99. According to The Verge, this updated controller includes the following features:
    • Adjustable tension thumbsticks.
    • Updated trigger grips.
    • Redesigned bumpers and shorter hair locks.
    • Increased customization for paddles and thumbsticks.
  • Doublefine Joins Microsoft: Continuing in their consumption of independent developer studios, Microsoft announced that it has bought Doublefine. Doublefine is known for its Psychonauts games and will release Psychonauts 2 in 2019.

Conclusion

Overall, the Microsoft E3 presentation was good—not great, but not bad. It was packed with games, but many of those games lacked gameplay footage and favored cinematic trailers instead. In a similar fashion, its information about Xbox Scarlett and Project xCloud were cursory and lacked the depth many were looking for. With Sony's absence and Stadia's less-than-stellar presentation, Microsoft was in a position to hit it out of the park, but realistically, only mustered a good presentation.

For more information, see the following:

Bethesda

Microsoft was definitely the headliner of the weekend, but Bethesda also presented on Sunday night, announcing a few major games and a surprising foray into the game streaming ecosystem. Foremost among the revealed games was DOOM: Eternal, which will launch Nov. 22 of this year for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One X.

Bethesda also announced a DOOM: Eternal Collector's Edition available for pre-order now. Pre-order is also available now for the Deluxe edition on all supported platforms and includes a Rip and Tear pack.

Other Titles

Apart from this major announcement, Bethesda also revealed information on a number of games that had previously been teased or were completely unknown:

  • Fallout 76: After the Fallout 76 debacle in Nov. of last year, Bethesda is looking to revive this damaged title with a new mode called Fallout 76: Nuclear Winter. This expansion will introduce a battle royale mode and will launch Jun. 10 of this year (and will be free for a sneak peek period). Bethesda also announced Fallout 76: Wastelanders that will introduce Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) to Fallout 76.  This update is free and will launch in Fall 2019.
  • Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot: Bethesda announced that it would be launching a new Virtual Reality (VR) adaptation of its flagship Wolfenstein title. This new title will be available in July for PC and PlayStation VR (PSVR).
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood: Bethesda also reshowed its anticipated offshoot: Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This follow-up to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will launch on Jun. 26 of this year on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. For more information, see The Verge.
  • Elder Scrolls: Blades: After porting Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch in 2017, Bethesda has announced that it will port its mobile game to the Switch. This port is free-to-play and will include cross-play and cross-progression with the Switch and will launch in Fall 2019.
  • Elder Scrolls VI: While no additional teasers or trailers were provided, Bethesda reiterated that development is still continuing on this much-anticipated title.

For more information, see the following:

Orion

Google and Microsoft's entrance into the game streaming market was not a shock at E3, but in the midst of this battle of titans, Bethesda's introduction of Orion came as a surprise. Orion is a complementary framework that integrates with existing game engines to increase the performance of a game when streamed. This includes, according to Bethesda, a 40% reduction in bandwidth for a high-fidelity stream, a 30% reduction in encoding time for frames, and a 20% reduction in compute power used when streaming a game.

While Bethesda did not provide any specifics about the internal workings of Orion, they did mention that the company has a Software Development Kit (SDK) available to ease the integration process for game developers and is already working with studios to incorporate the product. They also mentioned that DOOM: Eternal will include Orion (since it will be available on Google Stadia). Bethesda also announced that Orion will be available for testing later this year for DOOM: Eternal on iOS 11 (or higher) for those signed up to the Slayers Club. Testing on PC and Android devices will follow in the future, although no timetable was given.

For more information, see the following:

Devolver Digital

In perfect Devolver Digital style, the company brought some levity to the stage on Sunday night announcing that it would be selling bootleg versions of its own games at a 1% sale price. According to The Verge, the following titles will be available on devolverbootleg.com:

  • Enter the Gungeon (Enter the Gun Dungeon)
  • Hotline Miami (Hotline Milwaukee)
  • Ape Out (Ape Out Jr.)
  • Downwell (Shootyboots)
  • Luftrausers (Luftrausers 3)
  • Absolver (Super Absolver Mini: Turbo Fighting Championship)
  • Gato Roboto (Catsylvania)
  • Pikunuku (Pikunuku Ball-Stars)

According to the Steam page for this bundled release:

Devolver Bootleg contains eight original rip-offs of Devolver Digital games. Pay money for it now.

Devolver also announced Carrion, a backward horror game that allows players to be the monsters and hunt down the monster hunters, will launch in 2020. They also announced a $5,000 arcade cabinet of Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead, which includes a 6-month financing option (keep in mind, this is not satire—these are all real announcements).

These antics were not the end of the presentation either. For more information and a complete list of all the announcements made by Devolver Digital, see the following:

Other News

While Microsoft and Bethesda consumed a majority of the spotlight over the weekend, there was some other exciting news, including teases for future Splatoon 2 events, new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter confirmed for Tuesday's Nintendo Direct, the final THQ Nordic pre-E3 game announcement, and a new Playtonic title.

Nintendo Tournaments Brings Some News

Nintendo held its annual World Championships on Saturday, which included a look at Super Mario Maker 2, a Splatoon 2 Splatfest, and a 3v3 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate showdown. In the midst of these events, Nintendo revealed that at 8:00 am ET on July 18, it will host a 72-hour final Splatoon 2 Splatfest, nicknamed Splatocalypse. This event will include a new stage, Shifty Station, along with the other 23 existing Splatfest stages. The existing stages will be rotated for the first 48 hours and the new stage will be included in the rotation for the final 24 hours.

Players will be divided into two camps: Choas (Team Pearl) or Order (Team Marina). Nintendo will also be providing new in-game gear that will be announced via the Nintendo Switch news feed. While this news is exciting, what is even more exciting is the speculation that this final Splatoon 2 Splatfest may mean that a Splatoon 3 reveal may be coming down the pike in the near future.

Apart from Splatoon 2, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament brought with it some exciting teaser news: Masahiro Sakurai (Smash Bros. project lead) confirmed that the Nintendo Direct on Tuesday will include an announcement for a new fighter. While most have been guessing that a new fighter would be announced, we now have official confirmation. Sakurai did not provide any details on who the fighter would be, but if Nintendo follows in the unconventional footsteps of its Joker pick, we should be in for an interesting reveal.

For information, see the following:

THQ Nordic Rebooting Destroy All Humans!

To finish out its trifecta of game announcements for the week, THQ Nordic announced on Friday that it would be remaking the 2005-classic Destroy All Humans! In their standard comedy, THQ released an official trailer that included the abduction of farmer's cow and an alien singing Rammstein's Ich Will. THQ also announced that the game would be available in 2020 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Playtonic Announces New Yooka-Laylee Game

After mixed reactions to Playtonic's long-awaited Yooka-Laylee in 2017, the Rare-revived studio announced a follow-up called Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair on Friday. This follow-up appears to be in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze side-scrolling style and initial reactions seem to be more optimistic. While the original Yooka-Laylee suffered from grand ambition but flawed execution, this next installment—which includes 2D levels and a 3D overworld—seems to have simplified the game mechanics, making for a more enjoyable experience.

Further linking itself to Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, this installment includes music by David Wise (who also worked on Tropical Freeze) and Grant Kirkhope (who worked on Donkey Kong 64), both of which worked on the original Yooka-Laylee soundtrack. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be available in 2019 and will debut on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and Stream.

Still to Come

Even with the wild weekend of announcements, there is still a lot to come at E3 2019. Monday will feature Limited Run Games at 3:00 pm ET, Ubisoft at 4:00 pm ET, AMD at 6:00 pm ET, and Square Enix at 9:00 pm ET. Following announcements from these companies, Nintendo will provide its anticipated E3 Nintendo Direct at noon ET on Tuesday.
