Xbox and their New Hardware at Gamescom 2018

Xbox and their New Hardware at Gamescom 2018

With Gamescom 2018 right around the corner, we have confirmation as to what we can expect from Xbox at Gamescom 2018. Microsoft has stated in a post that they will not have a Conference this year however they do have a few other things in store for Xbox fans. Instead of a conference, they will be hosting a special episode of Inside Xbox, broadcasted live from the Xbox booth in the Koelnmesse on Tuesday, August 21 where they plan on talking about new Xbox One bundles, new Xbox Accessories and features on upcoming titles while also teasing a few surprises.

Speaking of Accessories, earlier last month, Xbox posted about showcasing new hardware at Gamescom this year which made the internet collectively lose their minds because people expected a new Xbox SKU. However, they later clarified that it’s not a new Xbox SKU but instead accessories for the current Xbox One and Xbox One X. They revealed a controller that they designed specifically for gamers who have disabilities so we can expect to get a better look at that. There are also rumours floating around of a new Xbox Elite controller. In case you missed our earlier post, Xbox has been working on an updated version of their high end Xbox Elite controller that features a lot of new additions like weighted analog sticks and more.

When it comes to games, we can expect to see Forza Horizon 4 having a playable demo available for people to try out, a look at two of the new upcoming DLCs for Sea of Thieves titled Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores. There’s also a little bit of hope to get more information about Crackdown 3 but sadly there’s no confirmation. They also stated that a few surprises would be coming our way so we can expect Xbox’s presence at Gamescom 2018 to be a fun and informative one.
