Last Sunday, we showcased a massive lineup of games targeted to come to Xbox and Game Pass over the next twelve months. Today, Erin Ashley Simon and Malik Prince sat down with the teams at Bethesda, Mojang Studios, Obsidian Entertainment, Playground Games and many more talented game creators from around the world to unpack the news we shared during the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase.
We also unveiled never-before-seen gameplay for Oxide Games’ Ara: A History Untold, revealed Microsoft Flight Simulator’s release of World Update X: United States and Beechcraft Model 18, a New Aircraft in Local Legends Series. What’s more, we announced that Valheim will come to Xbox and Game Pass later this year, shared a first look at gameplay for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and gave fans a glimpse of the Blunderdome and Halo worlds colliding in Fall Guys.
Here are some of the highlights from today’s Xbox Games Showcase: Extended show…
First Gameplay reveal of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Coming day one to Xbox and Windows PC with Game Pass, fans saw the first gameplay of the third-person asymmetrical horror experience The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Based on the groundbreaking and iconic 1974 horror film, players will take on the role of one of the notorious Slaughter family to seek out, track down, and stop their guests from escaping. Alternatively, players can take on the role of the Slaughter families victims and use their wits and stealth to stay out of the Family’s reach and find the tools needed to reach freedom. Experience the mad and macabre for yourself in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
Valheim coming to PC Game Pass in 2022, Xbox in 2023
Coming to Xbox and Game Pass on day one, explore a beautiful, procedurally generated world as a battle-slain Norse warrior whose soul has been ferried to Valheim to slay Odin’s ancient rivals. Build, conquer, craft and survive solo or cooperatively with friends as you endeavor to bring order to the world of Valheim.
