Microsoft announces huge holiday lineup for Xbox One and Xbox 360

10 Jun 14

E3 is happening right now and Microsoft has announced a huge list of exclusive games coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360.

First up is the revealing of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In preparation for Halo 5: Guardians out next year, you can relive the first four games of the popular series. The game have been remade to look even better on Xbox One.

Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive is also releasing later this year too. The game is a quirky shooting game that will redefine the genre. If you are sick of realistic type shooters, this game might be more of your cup of tea.

Lionhead Studios is up again with Fable Legends. The game is using the impressive Unreal Engine 4 and it also adds a new online component. A new Crackdown game was also announced which will add a new spin to open-world games. The new Crackdown won't be out in time for the holidays, but should be out next year.

Lastly, Forza Horizon 2 will be racing to the track later this year too. This game is not only releasing on Xbox One as an Xbox 360 version is being made too. The game will be even bigger than the first Forza Horizon game that released back in 2012.
