Watch Dogs Legion takes the hacking gameplay that has made the series so well-known and then gives you London and all its inhabitants to use it against.

Set several years in the future, Rainbow Six Quarantine isn't a spin-off of the highly successful Rainbow Six Siege, but something new entirely. In it, you'll play as one of the Rainbow Operators who are having to face off against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite that's started to infect the human race. It's a three-player co-op affair, where you play in PVE matches against this new, rather terrifying foe. Ubisoft promises "tense, chaotic, and totally unpredictable missions", and judging by Rainbow Six Siege, we don't doubt it.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is a first-person shooter game, in which players utilize many different operators from the Rainbow team. Different operators have different nationalities, weapons, and gadgets. For each phase of the game, choose one of the 45+ attacking or defensive operators, each with his own specific gadget and playstyle. Build the best team possible by selecting operators that complete each other.

Hopefully there’ll be a good range of scales from one one ‘raptor fights to everyone teaming up to take down a T-Rex. Singing the Jurassic Park theme tune as you is optional but encouraged.
A surprise sequel to Hellblade was revealed alongside the Xbox Series X itself. Called Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, we don't know actually that much about the game's story yet. The trailer itself doesn't give too much away – apart from the fact it looks fantastically glorious running in-engine – it definitely feels like it takes the same dark, terrifying tone as its source material. It's foreboding bonfires, weird-ass chanting and more, which all suggest yet another harrowing journey for our heroine.

It's the most immersive version of the classic game to date, and an absolute joy for eyes and ears.
The Falconeer is a new take on air combat. A 3rd person game that puts you in control of a Falconeer, an airborne warrior. Using ranged weapons the game still holds true to classic dogfighting mechanics but adds twists such as acrobatics and crazy line up of enemies to take on. You'll fight other Falconeer's, but also large lumbering airships, flying beetles, manta rays and of course the dragon-like weavers.
The story revolves around a singular conflict, but as a player you'll get to play and experience it from as many angles as you want, offering you access to all the factions involved.
The Falconeer is an open-world game. Meaning that a reasonable chunk of the Ursee can be explored and engaged freely. With different factions and their settlements and bases responding to your actions and faction allegiance.
You will need to survive and earn soulshards the currency of the Ursee, to improve your gear and mount, but also to keep your faction on top in the struggle to control the Ursee.
Layers of Fear and Blair Witch devs Bloober appear to be having a stab at a very Silent Hill sounding game with The Medium. And, most importantly, Akira Yamaoka is working on the soundtrack. Yes. The Silent Hill composer, Akira Yamaoka. Kind of a big deal there. The pitch even has a very familiar feel as it follows a medium called Marianne dealing with two worlds - the real one, and a spirit realm. And the story involves child murder, with Marianne visiting an abandoned hotel resort to try and unravel bad things that happened in the past. The only way it could sound more Silent Hill right now is if they added the name to the title.

Originally released in Japan earlier this year, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is now going to be released as a launch title for Xbox Series X, taking full advantage of the new smart delivery technology so that anyone who buys the game on Xbox One will get a free upgrade to the Series X version.

Each of the stages (literally) is filled with tricks and traps, but also intriguing stories.
Swedish developer DICE is finishing up its commitments to Star Wars: Battlefront II and Battlefield V, and moving on to the next proper Battlefield game. Battlefield 6, or whatever it ends up being called, is scheduled to arrive in 2021. The most recent games, Battlefield V and Battlefield 1, took place during World War II and World War I, respectively, but there is no word yet as to the time period of the new instalment.

You're en route to challenge a very specific foe on a journey of personal redemption, which involves also taking down a dark cult that actually made Nara. It's sounding like an intriguing single-player experience that focuses on a more mature and dark tale of redemption.

The next chapter of the iconic space shooter is perfectly timed to be a show pony for the new Xbox Series X, even if it will also be released on the "entire Xbox family of devices" including Windows PCs. It's being built on a new engine, Slipspace, and the trailer certainly looks real pretty.

As Bethesda's first new IP in over a decade, there's already a lot of pressure riding on Starfield. And now, it's been confirmed that it will count among the upcoming Xbox Series X games, by Bethesda's own Todd Howard. All we have to go on as to what the game is about is the above teaser trailer, which hints we're looking at a sci-fi RPG set somewhere in space. From the brilliant flash of light that quickly devours a space station and a planet though, it's clear something is going down in space town.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been unveiled as another of the upcoming Xbox Series X games, with a vague 2021 release date. The game will see you play as Gollum, starting out in Barad-dûr, a fortress in Mordor where the corrupted creature is being held prisoner, but you can expect to see plenty more of Middle-Earth beyond that, as the game promises "giant, persistent environments, each harbouring several questlines and a range of friendly or unfriendly faces." That's according to developer Daedelic, in an interview with Edge in early 2020, who describes the game as a "stealth-action-adventure with an intriguing dual-personality mechanic, gigantic levels, and a densely wrought aesthetic inspired by Tolkien's own drawings".
The original game was a slightly ramshackle but beloved cult classic that was more or less ‘Deus Ex but Vampires’. This takes the same idea but updates it to a modern setting where ‘The Masquerade’ - the rules by which vampires stay hidden - has been broken upheaving the brittle peace between numerous factions, each with different skills and abilities. Like the first game this is about crafting a supernatural character whose abilities shape your approach to its open missions - you can fight, sneak, or talk your way through a world of turf wars, subterfuge and political machinations, with you actions affecting everyone around you.
Play as 3 vampires, each over a hundred years old. Weave between their intertwined destinies, embracing their different points of view, and making use of their unique abilities to separate the truth from the lies.
Each character has their own vampiric disciplines that can be upgraded to suit your preferred approach. Will you choose, intimidation, seduction, or stealth? It’s your decision, provided you can keep the hunger for blood at bay.

Pragmata feels like if someone took Kojima's Death Stranding and somehow made it even weirder - especially from this early look at the game. Clearly set in New York, the game sees some sort of spacesuit-wearing traveller looking out for a young girl, and eventually taking her to the moon. Holographic cats, robots and a weird dystopian vibe run throughout, even suggesting the world the characters are existing in isn't even real. We're intrigued by this one.
State of Decay is back with the third entry in the zombie survival-horror series. Cleverly called State of Decay 3. Currently in early development, it's looking to bring fans the 'ultimate' zombie survival sim, and from the looks of the first trailer, it's going to brutal. Zombie deers, folks. Zombie deers. Graphically the game looks fantastic, so expect things to be even more gruesome than ever before.
A continuation of Rocksteady's Arkham universe, this is set in an open-world Metropolis and can be played solo or up to four players

The night turns into a nightmare when a police detective breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder and beats you to death. Only for you to find yourself immediately returned to the exact moment you opened the front door, stuck in a TWELVE-MINUTE time loop, doomed to relive the same terror again and again… Unless you can find a way to use the knowledge of what’s coming to change the outcome and break the loop. An interactive narrative that blends the dream-like suspense of THE SHINING with the claustrophobia of REAR WINDOW and the fragmented structure of MEMENTO.
Former Quantic Dream design lead Caroline Marchal heads up the new studio INTERIOR/NIGHT behind this interactive drama, featuring a strong team of veterans from places like Bioware, Sony London, and even Pixar. Set in the American Southwest, as Dusk Falls is a multi-generational story that begins with two families caught up in a hostage situation. The story that unfolds takes place over decades and explores how mistakes can be passed on from generation to generation.
Avowed is a brand new title from Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind The Outer Worlds and Fallout New Vegas. This is another first-person RPG that will no doubt build on the studio's penchant for epic adventures filled with memorable characters and a hint of the silly. We're off to a fantasy world called Eora for this one, and it looks pretty darn impressive, if much darker in tone than we'd usually expect from Obsidian. You've got magical abilities, a really cool sword and you will find yourself facing some seriously big monsters by the looks of things too.
Okay, okay, so neither Rare nor Microsoft have said that Everwild is an upcoming Xbox Series X game, but the fact it's only just been announced is in the early stages of development and isn't even close to a release date yet suggests that it could indeed be the case.
This is a brand new IP from Rare – the developer behind Sea of Thieves, Banjo-Kazooie, Battletoads and more – and all we have so far is the above trailer. It's filled with colorful and fantastical creatures that interact with humans cautiously in a slightly otherworldly setting. It's not clear yet what kind of game it'll be, but there's clearly a threat from predators in this world too. Whatever form it eventually takes, it's clear that it's going to be a beauty.

In addition to Starfield, Bethesda Game Studios is developing a new instalment in its acclaimed Elder Scrolls fantasy series. A reveal trailer released during E3 2018 confirmed that Bethesda had begun work on the title, but it appears to still be very early days for the project. It makes sense that Bethesda would return to one of its best-known and most-acclaimed franchises with new consoles coming soon. After all, The Elder Scrolls V has sold a whopping 30 million copies--across nearly every platform under the sun--making it one of the most successful video games in history. Like Starfield, Bethesda hasn't said if The Elder Scrolls VI will come to next-generation consoles, but that seems like a sure thing.
