Everything from Microsoft’s E3 2017 show
A new Xbox isn't the only trick Microsoft had up its sleeve for this year's E3.
This year, Microsoft finally announced the Xbox One X (the project formerly known as Scorpio) at its E3 conference. The console itself is a powerful entry to the mid-generation console jump and one that, surprisingly, comes in a slimmer form than the previous iteration on the Xbox One, the Xbox One S.
However, Microsoft had a few more surprises up their sleeve. Games like Metro: Exodus and Forza Motorsport 7 padded out Microsoft's console announcement with some titles that take advantage of the new console's tech.
Here's all the most important news from Microsoft's show.
Xbox One X officially announced
Yes. The 4K powerhouse we've been teased with for an entire year now. The Xbox One X intends to go up against the PlayStation 4 Pro and offer a premium gaming experience for those lucky enough to own a 4K television with HDR.
Over 30 current Xbox One games will be enhanced for Xbox One X.
Chilling footage of Metro: Exodus
The post-apocalyptic series returns in 2018 to scare the pants off you once again. Players will have to survive a snow-peppered Russian landscape with a zippo lighter and gas mask to get them through. Best of all, Metro: Exodus will support 4K HDR on Xbox One X.
Metro: Exodus will also be released for PS4 and PC when it launches.
Forza Motorsport 7 revealed
What's bound to be the most beautiful racing game of the ball was officially revealed at Microsoft's show. Car fans in the crowd seemed to lose their mind over the debut of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, so I suppose that's a good thing.
Forza 7 will feature over 200 driveable vehicles, dynamic weather effects and rain puddles that form in real-time (the future of gaming).
PC games for days
Though Xbox was no doubt the focus of the show, Microsoft made sure its PC fans weren't feeling forgotten.
15 games, including Life is Strange: Before the Storm, The Last Night and Crackdown 3, are coming to PC. 7 of those titles are Play Anywhere, meaning you can play on Xbox or Microsoft Windows with the one copy of the game.
Check out everything announced for PC.
