Also revealed during the presentation were “Gears of War: E-Day,” “Doom” prequel “Doom: The Dark Ages” and a reboot of the “Fable” franchise, the latter two coming in 2025.

On the heels of the success of Amazon Prime Video’s “Fallout” TV series, Xbox also announced a new expansion update for Bethesda Studios’ “Fallout 76” coming on June 12, titled “Skyline Valley.” In the new release, “Fallout” fans will finally be able to play as a ghoul character.

Additional news out of Xbox Games Showcase 2024 included updates on “Avowed,” “State of Decay 3,” EA and Bioware’s “Dragon Age: The Veilguard,” “Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred,” “Starfield: Shattered Space,” “South of Midnight,” “Atomfall,” “World of Warcraft: The War Within,” Konami’s “Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater” remake, “Winter Burrow,” “Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024,” extended footage from “Indiana Jones and the Great Circle” and other new games alongside target release dates.

A major theme through the Showcase presentation was the day-and-date availability of these new titles on Game Pass, marking a huge push for Microsoft Gaming to please its subscription service customers by not requiring them to wait for a new game to be included in the paid offering.

During the two-hour show, Xbox president Sarah Bond also revealed digital-only versions of the Xbox Series X and S will launch this holiday season, and that the company is currently working on its “next generation” of consoles. Xbox’s Series systems hit the market in Nov. 2020, the same month the PlayStation 5 console launched.

Xbox’s Games Showcase was held on the Sunday during Summer Game Fest, two days after the festival’s show at the YouTube Theater at SoFi Stadium, where first looks at Warner Bros. Games’ “Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions,” PlayStation’s “Lego Horizon Adventures,” and more titles were revealed.
