Only a day into Gamescom 2015 and weve already been bombarded by all sorts of new announcements, trailers and the like. Along with all of the expected updates and tidbits of information, though, Microsoft managed to surprise the audience with a handful of unexpected game announcements for Xbox One.
Microsoft managed to cram a bunch of info into its Gamescom presentation this morning, including expected highlights like Scalebound, Crackdown and plenty of news about the Halo universe and its upcoming games. What we didnt see coming, though, were a collection of five indie games that will be playable on the Xbox One in the coming months. Buckle up for a trailer overload.
Heading to Xbox One in October, Cobalt looks like what you would get if a lighthearted 2D shooter got together with the slow-motion shootouts from the Matrix and had a baby. Players will run, jump and shoot their way through dozens of levels, complete with the ability to slow down the action and make your shots really count. As a cyborg sent to an alien colony to investigate the disappearance of human settlers, youll be able to tackle the story solo, with a friend, or even go to war in online multiplayer modes.
