So Many Games! – Best of SGF and Xbox Showcases

It’s happening! What’s the procedure, what’s the procedure??? STAY CALM! Okay, so Summer Games Fest dropped last week, and OMG, there’s a ridiculous amount of heckin’ cool games on the way. In this article, I’m breaking down (I break down every day) the games we’re most excited about.  

Before I go crazy and info dump about my new favourite games on you, it is 100% worth checking out both the SGF and Xbox showcases. Both live streams were jam-packed with awesome announcements and fun.  

Fable 

Yes, it’s not exactly a new announcement, but I really don’t care. Fable dropped a new trailer and… Is that SUPER HANS? Playground Games shared more of their upcoming reimagining of the infamous RPG series at the Xbox Games Showcase, and TBH, the internet is kind of killing it with the Super Hans memes right now😩.  

I spent an ungodly amount of time playing Fable 2 and 3 on the Xbox 360 back in the day, and this latest trailer feels like a 20cc nostalgia hit straight into an open vein. Everything from the world to the NPC dialogue has transported me back to my childhood bedroom. 

The New Fable Game Has Been Revealed! Here’s Everything We Know So Far 


The New Fable Game Has Been Revealed! Here’s Everything We Know So Far 

Civilization VII

SGF might have been a little short on major announcements, but a new Civ game is all we need to get by. The legend of strategy games, Civilization has been around since 1991 and has taken on an almost cult-like following over that time. The teaser trailer for Civ 7 was just a taste. What we know is that a gameplay showcase is on the way this August.  

Lego Horizon Adventures 

Rumours of a Lego Horizon Adventures game have been in the pipeline for some time now, but we finally have deets! Showing off brick versions of Aloy and robot dinosaurs, this first video of the game has us really excited.  

Batman: Arkham Shadow 

Upcoming Meta Quest 3 exclusive Batman: Arkham Shadow is one we’re definitely keeping our eyes on at the moment. The trailer has given us a brief glimpse at the Gotham we’ll be entering. Filled with gas, insanity, and darkness, the showcase has set up the Rat King to be our villain.  

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 

Hold onto your wallets, as Activision wants at least £69.99 from you. Set to take place in the ’90s, leaks have already revealed the game will likely launch on October 25th with a campaign mode, multiplayer across 16 maps, and, of course, the return of the zombie game mode. 

DOOM: The Dark Ages 

The slayer is back! In this prequel, players are set to explore the origins of the DOOM Slayer while taking on the usual hordes of hell. And oh boy, DOOM has never looked this good before.
