It should be noted that the brand plans to launch 30 games, 27 of which will be available on its Xbox Games Pass subscription service.
One of the titles that attracted attention, especially since it was leaked online hours before the official presentation, was Starfield, a completely new space RPG that was created by Bethesda, the game studio that Microsoft bought together with ZeniMax Media. for 7.5 billion dollars. Its launch is scheduled for November 11, 2022.
It's a game we've dreamed of playing, and it wasn't until now that we have the hardware, the technology, and the team is working hard at home to make that dream come true, said Todd Howard, director of Bethesda Game Studios during the event.
