Xbox is having a comprehensive exhibition to get further into some of the first-party games that were shown off during the Xbox Games exhibition. Since 2021, Xbox has added an extended showcase following its annual summer events, which provides fans with additional insight into some of the most anticipated titles from the main show through developer interviews and extended gameplay walkthroughs.
With 11 games from its internal studios, Xbox’s Showcase featured a solid first-party presence. The fantastic modern aesthetics of the in-game Fable reveal impressed fans of the old Xbox title. Fans were also informed that Obsidian’s epic RPG Avowed and Ninja Theory’s gritty action sequel Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 will be released in 2024.
The long-awaited reveal from two lesser-known Xbox Game Studios, Compulsion Games’ stunning South of Midnight and inXile’s BioShock-inspired Clockwork Revolution, enthralled fans. With an unexpected 45-minute Starfield blowout to cap it all off, Xbox hasn’t finished its Summer Game Fest season yet.
As if that wasn’t enough, Xbox will have an additional lengthy demonstration on June 13th, offering deeper looks and potentially more gameplay of some of Xbox’s most anticipated titles, including Avowed and Hellblade 2.
Towerborne, the Microsoft Flight Simulator Dune addition, and The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom is among the more miniature games and partnerships on display. Surprisingly, the Extended exhibition will also include titles from Xbox partners not included in the initial showcase.
Many Hellblade fans have been curious about the combat in the sequel. With the most recent Hellblade 2 teaser not showing Senua in action, the extended presentation may finally show fans the fight, but that’s just speculation. In the case of Avowed, several fans were left cold by the first-person fantasy RPG’s aesthetics after the gameplay debut.
Hopefully, this extended dig will provide a closer look at Obsidian’s in-development title. It would also be lovely to see more of Fable, South of Midnight, and Clockwork Revolution, but these titles will not be making a return. Because such titles appear further away, Xbox emphasizes games closer to release, with Hellblade 2 and Avowed now bearing 2024 release dates.

Following up a terrific showcase with even more gameplay from some notable first-party titles is a wise idea, especially given that Starfield ate up much of the attention with its 45-minute straight.
As for the other Xbox collaborations that will debut at Extended, Avalanche’s Contraband or IO Interactive’s reported Project Dragon to suit the bill. Still, these would’ve indeed featured at the leading exhibition since Extended often favors smaller partners.
