Starfield launches in November 2022. Forza Horizon 5 in November 2021. The Outer Worlds 2 announced with no date or year. New games from the developers of Just Cause and Prey. A big multiplayer reveal for Halo Infinite. And Sea of Thieves is teaming up with its most natural partner, Pirates of the Caribbean. We also got release dates and/ or trailers for a bunch of titles, including Age of Empires IV, Psychonauts 2, STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl, and Microsoft Flight Simulator on Series S/X, alongside some new names. All this is coming to Xbox Game Pass as well — PC, Xbox consoles and cloud gaming — as are some other titles, including award-winning Hades (August 21), Diablo II: Resurrected (September 23), and Back 4 Blood (October 12). Here is every major announcement from Xbox and Bethesda’s E3 2021 showcase.Forza Horizon 5Release date: November 5 (Premium edition), November 9 (Everyone)Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and PC (Windows + Steam)After several reports claiming that a new Forza Horizon from Playground Games would arrive before the next Forza Motorsport from Turn 10, it’s now official. After Australia and the UK, Forza Horizon 5 is now headed to Mexico. Horizon 5 is promising the biggest open world of any Horizon title, better seasons, and a more social and wilder experience.You can form a co-op convoy as you “meet” other racers, you can take part in minigames and challenges in Horizon Arcade, you can give “Kudos” to fellow racers for positive acts, and you can even create your own Barn Finds for friends with any car in Gift Drops. Forza Horizon 5 will offer 1080p 30fps on Xbox Series S, and 4K 30fps on Xbox Series X with an optional 60fps performance mode.StarfieldRelease date: November 11, 2022Platforms: Xbox Series S/X and PCBethesda gave us our first look at its first new universe in 25 years at E3 2021. In the role-playing game Starfield, players can create their own character and traverse the stars with “unparalleled freedom”, Bethesda promises. Is this the studio’s own No Man’s Sky? We will learn more on that over the next year and a half. Starfield is made using the all-new Creation Engine 2 — its predecessor was used to make the likes of Skyrim and Fallout 4.Halo InfiniteRelease date: Late 2021Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and PCThe multiplayer games-as-a-service side of the next Halo title will be free-to-play, 343 Industries revealed at E3 2021, showcasing what players can expect in a two-minute-long multiplayer gameplay reveal. Xbox also gave us more info on the Halo Infinite campaign, which will feature a new UNSC AI the Weapon that has been purpose built to stop Cortana who absconded in Halo 5: Guardians. As the Master Chief, you will explore Zeta Halo and defeat the Banished to get control of the ring.The Outer Worlds 2No actual details were provided on the follow-up to Obsidian’s alt-history action role-playing game except that it will take place in a “new star system with a new crew.” The accompanying tongue-in-cheek announcement trailer for The Outer Worlds 2 does little to expand on that as well, as the team instead decided to parody announcement trailers for big sci-fi experiences of its sort — claiming that the developers haven’t finished designing the protagonist, the story, or any gameplay.RedfallRelease date: Summer 2022Platforms: Xbox Series S/X and PCThe next game for Prey and Dishonored maker Arkane Austin is an open-world co-op first-person shooter that pits you against superpowered vampires who don’t have any of vampires’ traditional weaknesses. You can play as one of four Redfall characters — an ex-military sharpshooter, a paranormal investigator, empathetic woman with robot companion, and the telekinetic youngest — with powers of their own. Or you can choose to go at it with up to three friends.Age of Empires IVRelease date: October 28, 2021Platforms: PC (Windows + Steam)Joan of Arc will return to Age of Empires with the long-anticipated fourth numbered entry, as part of the French civilisation that will be embroiled in the Hundred Years War with the English (previously revealed as as one of four civilisations alongside Mongols, Chinese and Delhi Sultanate). The other new civilisation announced at E3 2021 is the Abbasid Dynasty that focuses on technology and gives players a variety of upgrades thanks to its House of Wisdom landmark. And oh, there’s naval combat in Age of Empires IV.Microsoft Flight SimulatorRelease date: July 27, 2021Platforms: Xbox Series S/XNearly a year since its release on PC, the newest entry in plane flying simulation is on its way to next-gen Xbox consoles — with everything as is. That means 37,000 airports, 2 million cities, and 1.5 billion buildings, in addition to mountain ranges, roads, trees, rivers, animals, and traffic. Microsoft Flight Simulator will also get a free Top Gun: Maverick mode, when the Tom Cruise movie opens in November. But there is no word on an Xbox One debut.STALKER 2: Heart of ChernobylRelease date: April 28, 2022Platforms: Xbox Series S/X and PCThe next mainline entry in Ukrainian developer GSC Game World’s first-person shooter series now has a subtitle: Heart of Chernobyl, a callback of sorts to the first ever game from 2007. We got about four minutes of STALKER 2 gameplay at E3 2021, showcasing lively gunplay, eerie outdoors, a waltz lover, and monsters — all linked together by a conversation around a fire. The one other thing they have in common is the extreme level of detail thanks to the power of next-gen.ContrabandJust Cause maker Avalanche Studios is leveraging its open world expertise to create a co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan, where you will be pulling off heists — among a lot more — if the tiny announcement trailer is anything to go by. Contraband will make use of Just Cause’s Ape Engine too, whose prowess is coming to Xbox Series S/X for the first time.Psychonauts 2Release date: August 25, 2021Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PS4, PS5 and PC. Mac and Linux TBAThe sequel to Double Fine’s 2005 cult classic is now just a couple of months away. In Psychonauts 2, acrobat and psychic Razputin Aquato must bring back a murderous villain back from the dead, all while coming to grips with all manners of challenges inside a… brain. Just as the brain has different parts to it, so will Psychonauts 2, with different types of levels. All you will need to save the world is some bacon, it seems.A Plague Tale: RequiemRelease date: 2022Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and PCFrench developer Asobo Studio’s 2019 survival horror game is getting a direct sequel with returning duo Amicia and her little brother Hugo on “a perilous new quest, doing whatever it takes to survive a brutal, uncaring world.” The 90-second announcement trailer shows war in the Middle Ages, and a nightmarish swarm of rats. Are they real? You bet they are.ReplacedRelease date: 2022Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and PCIt’s not The Last Night, but it sure threw many off at its E3 2021 announcement, with its neon-lit pixelated dystopian world and beat ’em up gameplay. And though the trailer doesn’t say it, an accompanying announcement tweet revealed that you will play as an artificial intelligence trapped in a human body.Atomic HeartThere are major steampunk vibes to this alt-history first-person action game that is set in 1955 Soviet Union where Internet, holograms and robots are already a thing. You will play as P-3, an agent sent by the Soviet government to investigate a manufacturing facility that has dropped off radar. But if the Atomic Heart reveal trailer is anything to go by, you will be engaged in a lot more than that.Why did LG give up on its smartphone business? We discussed this on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast. Later (starting at 22:00), we talk about the new co-op RPG shooter Outriders. Orbital is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts.

Elden Ring finally has a release date: January 21, 2022. At the Summer Games Fest kick-off on Thursday, Dark Souls maker FromSoftware revealed the first gameplay trailer for its next game — a collaboration between game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin — coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Steam for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. Console owners won’t have to buy Elden Ring twice, as the game will support free upgrades for those going from PS4 to PS5, and “Smart Delivery” if you’re moving from Xbox One to Series S/X. More details on Elden Ring will naturally be revealed throughout the rest of 2021.With Elden Ring, FromSoftware promises open-ended gameplay and a world whose fate you get to choose. You can decide to run straight at your opponents in battles or you can make use of Elden Ring’s stealth and combat systems to come out on top. To fit, Elden Ring has role-playing aspects that allow players to develop these kinds of different playstyles. You can pick between a variety of weapons, magical abilities and skills that can be earned across its world. As for the fights themselves, you will naturally face all sorts of monstrous beasts and weirdly shaped creatures, including fire-breathing dragons.Along your journey, you will meet a number of characters who have their own motivations for helping you or hindering you. And as you complete adventures, unlock the land’s secrets and myths, you will get to decide what happens to this fantasy world envisioned by Miyazaki and Martin. The world of Elden Ring also has a natural weather and time-of-day progression, which is to say that it will have a 24-hour day-and-night cycle interspersed with weather phenomena such as rain, storms, and snow. The Elden Ring landscape is littered with “grassy plains, suffocating swamps, lush forests, spiraling mountains, and breathtaking castles.”You can explore Elden Ring by yourself, or you can choose to do so as a squad of up to four players in online co-op multiplayer. It will likely work in a similar fashion to other FromSoftware titles, but we can’t say for sure until we have more details on that front.“With Elden Ring, we have applied all our dark fantasy and action-RPG expertise cultivated throughout the Dark Souls series, in order to create a bold, classical evolution of the genre,” Miyazaki said in a prepared statement. “We’ve crafted a rich world with a staggering sense of scale, based off of legends written for the game by George R. R. Martin. Elden Ring is a world full of mystery and peril, ready to be explored and discovered; a drama in which various characters flaunt their own mystique and ulterior motives. We sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing it for yourself.”Elden Ring is out January 21, 2022 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.Why did LG give up on its smartphone business?

It is speculated that the two products will be launched during the Realme GT 5G smartphone’s global launch this month.As per the leaked images obtained by Android Authority, Realme is expected to soon launch a laptop called Realme Book and a tablet called the Realme Pad. Yesterday, Realme India and Europe CEO Madhav Sheth teased an upcoming laptop and company CMO Francis Wong teased a tablet.

Realme may call its laptop Realme Book which, as per the report, will have an aluminium body and a 3:2 aspect ratio display. The images show what seem to be speaker grilles at the bottom with holes for ventilation. There are slim bezels surrounding the screen and a Realme logo on the top. The report states this is a prototype of the Realme Book so it should be noted that the final product may not be exactly represented here.Coming to Realme Pad, company CMO Francis Wong asked fans on Twitter what the new Realme tablet should be called — Realme Pad or Realme Tab. At the time of writing, Realme Tab received the majority of votes at 50.6 percent but it seems like the company prefers Realme Pad. But that might change when the actual launch takes place. There is only one image for Realme Pad and it shows the side profile of a slim tablet with sharp edges reminiscent of the iPad Pro, as well as a small bump from the camera module.Realme Pad may be the name for the company’s first tabletPhoto Credit: Android AuthorityThe Realme Tab image comes with the ‘GT’ moniker at the top suggesting the company could unveil its laptop and tablet at the Realme GT 5G global launch scheduled for June 15.It’s an all television spectacular this week on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast, as we discuss 8K, screen sizes, QLED and mini-LED panels — and offer some buying advice.
