Fans can expect to see exclusive titles like Scalebound, Fable: Legends, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, and Quantum Break. Not only this, but for the first time, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be getting a hands-on demo.
In a recently shared image, we speculated that Microsoft may also announce backward compatibility for Xbox One along with talks of ID@Xbox.
Over the past few weeks, we have also been hearing reports of surprise announcements for Gamescom 2014. I, personally, am rooting for something on Black Tusk Studio’s next instalment for Gears of War franchise or something entirely new.
