Microsoft brought a series of exciting surprises in its presentation at E3 2017 with Xbox One X, blockbuster games, and especially the ancestor of Assasin’s Brotherhood.
It can be said that Microsoft’s performance at E3 2017 combines “no surprises” and “overwhelming surprises”. Most fans expected the program structure when they introduced a new console model, and a series of game trailers later served as the foundation for the new console launch. The majority of the show’s time is in the trailer presentation and brings many surprises to the first shown games.
All are the background for Project Scorpio, or officially called Xbox One X!
Xbox One X – The most powerful console in the world
That is the slogan that was repeated throughout the Microsoft program at E3 2017. Project Scorpio is the name of the new upgraded Xbox One model using Microsoft’s Scorpio engine. The Xbox One X has 4K output graphics, a custom 2.3 GHz processor, 12GB GDDR5 RAM, 326 GB / s bandwidth, and up to 6 Teraflops graphics processing power.
Xbox One X is compatible with all previous Xbox One games and accessories. Moreover, Microsoft introduced a new upgrade for the backward compatibility program when adding Xbox 360 games and a series of games from the first Xbox like Crimson Skies. Now owners of the Xbox One device (One, One X, and One S) will play even more old games.
At this event, besides Xbox One X, Microsoft also introduced another model: Xbox One S. Both models are designed in a “slim” style with a compact appearance up to 40% compared to the original Xbox One. Xbox One S is an upgraded version of the classic Xbox One with 4K graphics and a 2TB hard drive.
Xbox One X and Xbox One S
The Xbox One S will go on sale this week in the US for just $ 249, while the Xbox One X will go on sale worldwide on November 7, 2017, with a reference price of $ 499.
During this presentation, Microsoft introduced 42 titles, including 24 exclusive games for Xbox One X.
Assassin’s Creed Origins – First assassin
One of the super hot titles for Xbox One X is Assassin’s Creed Origins from Ubisoft. The company representative brought the official E3 2017 trailer and gameplay trailer to try a short screen in this alpha build.

Players will play the ancestor of the assassin guild, Bayek, living in ancient Egypt. The character’s life and feats led to the assassin’s creation later, so Bayek can be considered the assassins’ ancestor.
The gameplay featured many impressive details such as the sharp 4K graphics of Xbox One X, the skills and action effects of assassins such as slow-mo action, stealth kill, chain kill, face-to-face combat, and in the final scene, it seems the arrow chases its target.

The game will reach players on October 27, 2017.
Sea of Thieves – All in one boat
As was revealed earlier, a group game called Sea of Thieves was introduced quite carefully during this show. This is a game played in the navy context; players will work in groups as a pirate ship crew and travel around the magical world of navigation.

The player’s journey will go through treasure-hunting adventures, fighting against the ghosts of protecting wealth and PvP. During the journey, the player must work together, supporting each other for the ultimate goal of winning the team, the crew on his ship.
The game uses cartoon-style graphics and pretty details such as eating bananas to recover HP, moving by … getting into cannons, and shooting away.
As introduced at EA’s show yesterday, Anthem is a new online game product developed by Bioware exclusively for Xbox One X for the first time at E3 2017. Getting into your eyes is a familiar scene. Belongs to the world of dust and mechanics after the apocalypse. This setting is reminiscent of Rage or Rey’s early background in Star Wars The Force Awaken.
Players will play a free warrior using support armor called Javelin when stepping out of the city to fight. Javelin is an exposure system specifically designed for each character with travel and combat support functions. Players can fly, dive underwater, jump by jet pack like Titan Fall. In combat, it supports weapons from simple guns such as individual guns to mortars, target cluster missiles, and creates energy pressure (energy charge) that repels the surrounding enemies.

The game is designed in the style of a co-op party. Many other players can join the mission. In the production video, the manufacturer can see a party of 4 characters with 4 Javelin sets with completely different shape functions.
The game is expected to launch in 2018.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War – Total war
The producer of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War also has a short introduction to the upcoming game for Xbox One X. Accordingly, many details are “pushed” beyond the head of Shadow of Mordor.
Typically, the Nemesis system becomes more flexible, and players can talk to the person who has been captured by the story as friends instead of as rigid as the first. Players also witnessed this system’s complexity when capturing an army of their own, ordaining their leader squad. The highest objective is to bring down the high ranking leaders of the enemy with full force war.

Instead of surreptitiously invading and “stealing”, players will lead a monumental success with their army. The leaders selected to participate in the battle’s victory will decide the war with the military forces they carry and ultimately support the main character and defeat the big boss.
The personal combat system was also improved when the demo video showed a series of flexible, continuous rotation skills between the protagonist Talion and the spirit of the elf Celebrimbor. This flexibility helps both fights off a rather large army of enemies. One thing in Shadow of Mordor is a challenging situation to chew.
A series of exciting new game trailers
Of the 42 games featured in the show, many games appeared beautifully and unexpectedly. These include Forza 7 Motorsport with Porche GT2RS 2017, Minecraft 4K and a shared server for all platforms, Metro Exodus, Ori and the Will of Wisps, Crackdown 3, Ashen, Black Desert, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, State of Decay 2.
