Microsoft made an extensive presentation on the E3 stage this year, offering details not only about the much-awaited Halo 4, but also about some other very interesting projects in terms of video games.
Microsoft’s ace in the sleeve when it comes to gaming consoles, the Halo series, comes back with Halo 4, the beginning of a new trilogy under the baton of those from 343 Industries. The presentation during the E3 conference included the premiere of Halo Infinity Multiplayer, with focus on the Spartan Ops mode, which offers a series of episodic adventures available in both single and multiplayer, co-op with up to 4 players.
Master Chief returns into the battle armed with the Forerunner, a modular weapon with spectacular effects, ready to cause problems for mankind’s enemies. The game shines in terms of graphics and sound and will be available in early November.
Another moment welcomed with interest by the public was the presentation of the new Tomb Raider. Even if the launch of the game has been re-scheduled by producers for the spring of 2013, images present us in an advanced stage, managing to have a look over the mechanics (bow hunting seems very interesting), over the superb graphics – from the irresistible Lara to the wild landscapes – and over the battle system.
Microsoft SmartGlass is an application for devices with Windows 8 or Windows Phone that connects your phone, tablet or PC to the Xbox 360 console for an interactive experience. You can find information about locations in Game of Thrones while watching the show, you will receive additional information while playing Halo 4 or you can quickly generate strategies in Madden 13, all thanks to the console-tablet interaction. The system promises to facilitate surfing the Internet too, being able to control the websites from a mobile device and to view them on TV.
