Opening the 2019 Game Awards with quite the bang, Microsoft has revealed that the previously code-named Xbox Scarlett is officially called the Xbox Series X.
Phil Spencer took to the stage to reveal some details along with a sneak peak at one of the exclusive titles in development for Microsoft's next-gen console. The console looks much more like a PC rig, albeit with more of a tower structure than we're used to seeing in the console space. Check out the Xbox Series X reveal trailer below!
The game revealed is none-other than a sequel to Ninja Theories' excellent hellblade senua's sacrifice. Titled Hellblade II: Senua's Saga, the trailer showcased some stunning visuals along with a look at our protagonist and her new face paint.

In what may be the best surprise from the Game Awards, The Wolf Among Us 2 has been re-announced.
Fans were understandably left hungry for more when Telltale Games closed their doors in 2018, leaving the previously announced sequel in limbo.
LCG Entertainment, operating under the Telltale name acquired Telltale's assets and back catalogue a few months ago and has now revealed the resurrection of the sequel with a brief teaser trailer.
Announced at the Game Awards, former PREY and Dishonored developers behind the newly formed WolfEye Studios revealed their next game.
Aptly titled Weird West, the game is a dark fantasy-western action-RPG and makes a departure form the developers previous work by ditching the first-person view. Weird West will instead be an isometric RPG, but will still feature all of the hallmarks the developers are known for.
In an accompanying press release the studio stated that players will "discover a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures. Journey through the origin stories of a group of atypical heroes, written into legend by the decisions you make in an unforgiving land. Each journey is unique and tailored to the actions taken - a series of high stakes stories where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make. Form a posse or venture forth alone into an otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own.”
While we may not have seen the console itself yet, PlayStation 5 has its first confirmed title – Godfall.
Described as a 'looter-slasher,' the game is being developed by Counterplay Games – the studio behind Duelyst – and published by Gearbox.
Featuring fantasy role playing elements and third person melee combat, Godfall supports solo, duo or trio player co-op.

Like them or not, Battle Royale modes hit peak-popularity this year and don't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The next game to add the last-person-standing mode is Forza Horizon 4.
Much to my disappointment, this doesn't mean you'll be parachuting your car down and using any weaponry to eliminate the opposition. Instead, the game's version of Battle Royale will see up to 72 players racing around an ever-shrinking map (wouldn't be BR without that) hunting for drops and going head-to-head with other players.
Everyone will start the game with a 1965 Mini Cooper, but beating another player will present you with the option to either take their car or an upgrade to yours. You'll also have to keep an eye out for drops which will give you a better car while keeping within the boundaries of a shrinking map. The last group of survivors will then take part in one final race to determine the victor.

Some great news for baseball fans – Sony's MLB: The Show series will no longer be exclusive to the PlayStation platform going forward.

While the "additional console platforms" are yet to be confirmed, both Xbox and Nintendo have celebrated the news on social media.
Brace yourselves for the surprise of the century – Resident Evil 3 is getting a remake and releases on April 3, 2020.
Rumours had been circulating that a remake was in the works after the success of RE2: Remake, but today Capcom made it official during Sony's State of Play stream.
Jill Valentine returns as the main character, who must escape Raccoon City while being hunted down by Umbrella Corps' Nemesis monstrosity.
New details surrounding PlayStation's exclusivity for the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII have emerged, thanks to new box art.
Posted by industry tipster, Wario64, the new art includes a badge that notes the game to be a 'Timed Exclusive until 3/3/21.'
From the game's first reveal at its E3 2015 conference, Sony has used phrases like "play it first on PlayStation," cluing many into the fact that this wouldn't remain a console exclusive forever.
“Death Stranding shows that, much like movies, games have the opportunity to evoke conflicting emotions in us. They should challenge our preconceptions and in that, Death Stranding is a success on every front.”
