Grand Theft Auto V is coming to next-gen gaming consoles on November 18th. Rockstar Games had previously announced that its popular game would be coming to both the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Microsoft Xbox One in the fall, but today we have finally gotten an exact release date.

Unfortunately, the much-anticipated PC version, which was announced at the same time, has been delayed and won't launch until January 27th 2015. GTA V first launched last September where it proved to be an incredible success on the PS3 and Xbox 360, earning $1 billion just three days after it was released. 

Next-gen console gamers who didn't get to enjoy Rockstar's newest title, will not only be getting additional content like more cars and guns to play with, but also technical improvements such as more realistic LA-style traffic and improved weather effects.

Assassin’s Creed Unity

Assassin’s Creed remains near the top of most gamers’ want lists for a reason. The demo was a long showcasing of what looks a very exciting experience, and although the stealth factor seems to have been lost over time, it’s all a part of the game’s evolution.

This time around, Ubisoft showcased a four-player online Shared Experience, and below, you can check the trailer for a taster of what’s to come.

The title will be available this ‘Holiday 2014’.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

The Call of Duty franchise regularly takes the crown as the biggest-selling title of each year, and although it was relieved of that accolade last year by the record-busting GTA V from Rockstar Games, it is widely expected that the Activision title will reign supreme once again this time around.
2014's title, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was confirmed by Microsoft’s Xbox lead Phil Spencer just a short while ago, and will become available on November 4th, 2014.


Originally launched back in 2007 for the Xbox 360, Crackdown is finally coming to the Xbox One with improved graphics, extreme gaming action and more.

The new Crackdown will be available next year.

Dance Central: Spotlight

Another addition to the famed Dance Central series, Spotlight will be headed exclusively to the Xbox One in the fall. As ever, it will pack a whole new soundtrack, and will be available as a digital download this September.

Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remi

An interesting new, arcade remix of Dead Rising 3 was also unveiled at the keynote, and is available to download and enjoy as of right now.

Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved

Another Xbox exclusive, the motion video game will be available on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and will release on October 21st of this year.

Popular racer Forza Horizon 2 in 1080p was also demoed, and will arrive one week earlier than the latest installment of CoD on September 30th.

Halo 1- 4 in 1080p

No Microsoft E3 keynote would be complete without some mention of Halo, and sure enough, 343 Industries’ Bonnie Ross took to the stage to talk Halo. November 11th will mark the release of The Master Chief Collection, described the entire Halo game series, under one roof, and “remastered for Xbox One” in 1080p.

User will readily be able to toggle between remastered and original versions of the titles, and with multiplayer maps even having been remastered here, The Master Chief Collection will serve as an epic piece of Halo history that dedicated fans will not want to miss.

In total, you get 100 multiplayer maps from the original Halo: Combat Evolved through Halo 4, and with a Gamerscore of 4000 achievable, it’s the perfect opportunity to boost your stats.

Halo 5: Guardians

For those in search of a new Halo experience, Halo 5: Guardians is on the horizon, with a beta headed later this year. As much as we’ll love reliving the story so far through Halo 1-4, we’re certainly looking forward to seeing what Halo 5 has to offer, and will keep you guys posted on any news relating to it or indeed any of today’s other Microsoft-related announcements.

Ori and the Blind Forest

This new platformer is as whimsical and innocent as the title suggests, and whilst it’s easy to get wrapped up in the seriousness of some of these other titles, Ori and the Blind Forest offers a welcome break from tradition.

Created by Moon Studios, it will be available this year.

Phantom Dust

Available on the original Xbox, Phantom Dust is back and has been completely reimagined for Microsoft’s latest powerhouse for your living room, the Xbox One.

No release date has been revealed for Phantom Dust yet.

Project Spark DLC

Conker the squirrel will be making an unexpected, but nonetheless welcome appearance on Project Spark this fall. The game-making project, which was announced at last year’s E3 before being rolled out in beta for Xbox One in March, and with the Conker pack, creative folk will have the added entertainment of this famous furry rodent.

Rise Of Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is back and carries a more darker personality than ever. Although at this point we don’t have much details regarding the release date, but the trailer itself is enough to keep us on the edge of our seats.


An exclusive title to the Xbox One, Scalebound is a game which is meant to be big. While no release date was revealed at the keynote, it looks set to be a promising title.

There are no details regarding the game’s release date.

Sunset Overdrive

This open world title may not be as keenly-awaited as Grand Theft Auto, but it still has, by the look of the trailer, a great deal to offer. With 8-player co-op mode, it will keep you and your friends very much entertained, and it will launch on October 28th exclusively to the Xbox One.

Tom Clancy’s The Division

The Division got some good stage time at the E3 opening keynote, and is a title based on online gameplay. From graphics to simple actions, this is without a doubt a next-gen title by a huge margin.

The game is said to be releasing next year.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt got a brand new gameplay trailer on stage at E3. No specific Xbox One related announcements were made, though.

The title is said to be arriving in February 2015.

Skype group video calls now free across Windows, Mac and Xbox One

Microsoft has announced on Monday that Skype group video calls are now free across PC, Mac and Xbox One. Previously, the feature required a Skype Premium subscription, which started at $2.99 per month. Unfortunately this offer is not extended to other mobile platforms - like Android or iOS.

Google’s Hangouts service has long offered group video chats for free and offers features like group chats, current not available to Skype (or Windows Phone) users. Skype said that it will start to add support “for all our users across more platforms,” in the future, but didn't say when it will make the move to mobile.

Its important for Microsoft to try and stay ahead of its competition with Skype instead of play catch up. It Skype users continue to switch to competing products like Google Hangouts, it will eventually become too late for Microsoft to win them back.
