Xbox @ GamesCom 2017 Conference Recap

So Microsoft this morning held their GamesCom 2017 Press Conference and while it wasn’t an E3 conference, there was certainly still some notable announcements to come of the event. You can find each of them here for your enjoyment.


There were a few hardware related announcements made, with the big one, of course, being the Project Scorpio Day 1 only Xbox One X console. There was also the reveal of the Minecraft themed Xbox One S

We also saw the reveal of Jurassic World Evolution, a game that gives you the power to build and manage your own park in a very Sim City, Rollercoaster Tycoon sort of way. Conveniently, the game is coming from Frontier Games, the developers of Rollercoaster Tycoon. Though the game was revealed on the Xbox stage, it will also be coming to PS4 and PC, all simultaneously in 2018

Assassin’s Creed: Origins got a cool new cinematic trailer
