There were many third party games shown off during today’s Inside Xbox. We saw gameplay from some of then, and teaser trailers from others. You can watch the entire first look down below.
First up, we saw gameplay from Bright Memory Infinity, a new game from FYQD-Studio. The game combines first person shooting with hack and slash gameplay. Included with that is a grappling hook similar to that found in Sekiro which allows for traversal around the map and the ability to close the gap with enemies. There also is some driving sequences included in the game.
Next up we saw gameplay of Dirt 5, which will have you driving on tracks all over the world. In an interview with the Development Director, Robert Karp, we found out that both Nolan North and Troy Baker will be doing voice acting for the game.
Then they showed a teaser trailer for Scorn, which looks to be in the horror genre. Not much was shown, but we do know it’s coming to Xbox Game Pass. Up next was the announce trailer for Chorus, a game about a space warrior on a mission to destroy the people that created her. As it is set in space, the game features a spaceship which you use to pilot around the galaxy.
After that, Super Bowl Champion Patrick Mahomes came out to talk a little on Madden 21. More on Madden will be shown at EA Play. Then, we saw a new trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. There is still no set release date for the game, but it’s planned to come out sometime this year.
Following that was two new Game Pass games, Call of the Sea which looked like an exploration/puzzle game, and The Medium from the team behind Layers of Fear and Blair Witch. The Medium will feature music from composer Akira Yamaoka, the man behind the music of Silent Hill 2. We also saw a new Isometric ARPG The Ascent set in some dystopian future, and later saw a trailer set in post apocalyptic Earth titled Second Extinction: Reclaim Earth.
Finally we say gameplay of Scarlet Nexus, a game made by Bandai Namco that sees you fighting off the monsters that have invaded the world. Also, we saw gameplay from a new Yakuza spin off, Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
The last thing shown was a gameplay trailer of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. There wasn’t much combat gameplay shown, but we did see in-game footage of the Viking longships you will be sailing. We also saw some footage of sieges. The game releases Holiday of 2020.
