Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference has come to a close, and we've compiled a list of all the new games that will be joining the Xbox One X Enhanced program.

Microsoft on Sunday announced four gaming studio acquisitions, and the creation of its own new studio called The Initiative, as it plans to create more first-party titles.

Ninja Theory has designed titles including Hellblade, Undead Labs has released the State of Decay series, and Compulsion Games is working on its new title We Happy Few which will launch this year. The game looks handsome already but will see a higher visual fidelity through the power of Xbox One X.

But there was also room for Forza Horizon 4 to show us an exciting new "British" racing game with several exciting new features no seen previously in a Forza game.

E3, short for Electronic Entertainment Expo, officially opens Tuesday, but several large game publishers and hardware makers are holding preshow events. He went on to declare that Xbox will be always be the best place to experience gaming and hinted at a cloud gaming service and new Xbox consoles for the future. By delivering looks at new multi-platform games like Devil May Cry 5, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, The Division 2, Dying Light 2, Just Cause 4, and Cyberpunk 2077, people may just connect those games to Xbox One first and foremost.

"Fortunately we had radio, fortunately we had the lap counter in the vehicle , and the pit board was accurate", said Vettel. Kimi Raikkonen was sixth ahead of the two Renault cars with Nico Hulkenberg leading home Carlos Sainz Jr.

Battletoads will make its return sometime in 2019 on the Xbox One family of consoles while a release for Windows 10 PCs was not explicitly announced.

To combat the long wait for the game, 343 will perform some "flighting programs" where players will be able to play the game with the developers and give direct feedback during the development. Let us know in the comments below!

In some ways, Microsoft was playing to an easy crowd, with Xbox Fanfest winners in attendance to provide requisity whoops and hollering - and some even twirling shirts in the air at the bigger announcements - but not all games enjoyed a good response.

"We will join Master Chief on his greatest adventure yet to save humanity", said Xbox chief Phil Spencer following the trailer.
