- The Elder Scrolls Online: Matt Firor who is the Studio Director at Bethesda will talk about the exciting new update coming to this popular MMORPG. This will include the upcoming Tamriel region and a brand-new feature that will come into effect. Viewers will then be treated to watching the official Chapter Reveal Event.
- Forza Motorsport: The Turn 10 Studios team will discuss gameplay and other details for the highly-anticipated next entry in this racing series.
- Minecraft Legends: Mojang Studios follows after that with an exclusive look at this Minecraft spinoff's gameplay. This is an action-strategy game with PvP multiplayer that comes to several platforms this spring including Xbox and PC.
- Redfall: Additionally, the team at Arkane Austin will bring us a look at "several minutes of gameplay" for this upcoming vampire survivor game. We've been told we'll learn more about "combat, customization, bosses, the open world, and more". It will be great to get a better idea of what to expect from this FPS.
