Although the freshly-announced Xbox One X dominated Microsoft’s E3 press conference, the company also peeled back the curtain on some upcoming ID@Xbox titles.
ID@Xbox is Microsoft’s initiative allowing indie developers to self-publish on Windows and Xbox One, and has brought a number of gems to the platforms, including Playdead’s Limbo, Red Barrels’s Outlast, and Mike Bithell’s Thomas Was Alone. The latest crop of games has the potential to be just as exciting and innovative as some of the best projects already launching via the platform, with a wide-ranging list.
Spotlighted during the conference were AnnaPurna Interactive and Aurora44’s Ashen, and Square-Enix and Deck Nine’s Life is Strange: Before the Storm (a three-part prequel beginning in August), and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
The list of games announced during Microsoft’s press conference included Raiders of the Forbidden Planet, Battlerite, Surviving Mars, Fable Fortune, >Observer_, Robocraft: Infinity, Dunk Lords, Minion Masters, Brawlout, Ooblets, Dark and Light, Strange Brigade, Riverbound, Hello Neighbour, Shift, and Conan Exiles.
Phil Spencer also announced that over 500 games have already been released via the ID@Xbox Program.
OnlySP will be providing more details on many of these games in the coming weeks and months, but in the meantime bookmark the website and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr for all the latest from E3.
