The Xbox Games Showcase is almost here, ready to provide us with the world’s first look at many of the upcoming Xbox Series X games. Microsoft has promised that the showcase will focus exclusively on the games themselves, so aside from gameplay footage showing off the capabilities of the Xbox Series X, don’t plan on the event revealing too much new information about the console itself. While several of the games will likely be surprise announcements, Microsoft has confirmed that Halo: Infinite will be making an appearance. Microsoft is also holding the Xbox Summer Game Fest which enables players to demo over 70 unreleased Xbox One games from now until July 27. The Xbox Games Showcase is set to kick off tomorrow at 9am Pacific Time.

  2. Ubisoft Next-Gen Pricing   Ubisoft has revealed some promising news about their next-gen game pricing. All of Ubisoft’s 2020 game releases on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion, will maintain their $60 price tag. Considering that many next-gen games from other publishers have already committed to a $70 price tag, this is great news for Ubisoft fans who are planning to upgrade to a PS5 or Xbox Series X. It sounds like Ubisoft might raise prices in the future, but promised that “for Christmas releases, games will launch at $60.”

  3. Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time   Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time now has an official release date. Battle Through Time is an action-platformer hack-and-slash game published by Adult Swim and based on the popular noughties cartoon Samurai Jack. Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is set to launch on August 21; you can check out the release date trailer for the game below.

  4. Star Wars: The Old Republic on Steam   Nearly a decade after its initial release, Star Wars: The Old Republic is now on Steam. The hugely ambitious MMO was originally confined to EA’s Origin Store as EA attempted to use the game’s popularity to bring more users to Origin. The Steam version of The Old Republic is free to play for the core game, but additional content, cosmetics, and expansions can be unlocked via an optional subscription.

  5. Yakuza: Like a Dragon   Yakuza: Like a Dragon now has an official release date. The seventh installment in the Yakuza series, Like a Dragon will feature some significant changes to the previous games, including the implementation of turn-based RPG-style combat. Sega also confirmed that Like a Dragon would be getting an English dub version which will include voice acting by major stars such as George Takei. Yakuza: Like a Dragon is available for pre-order now and is set to launch on November 13; check out the trailer below.
