Microsoft's new console is introducedMicrosoft's new console, formerly known as Project Scarlett, has finally been officially unveiled at The Game Awards. The Xbox Series X will arrive next winter. The first exclusive title, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, has already been introduced, so it's time for the console. The new Xbox has also undergone significant changes in appearance, as it looks more like a brick than a game console.
Therefore, it will not be possible to lay it down. There are some information about the parameters before, but developers say "Series X will be the most powerful Xbox console of all time," which is not a big deal. It's also known that there are currently 15 teams working on exclusive games, which will provide the strongest overture in the history of the console, at least in the games offering.
The Big Bad Wolf returns
The Wolf Among Us was one of Telltale's final projects, but the fate of the developers became uncertain. Well, the announcement at The Game Awards says the game has been saved! Telltale is using AdHoc Studio to make a sequel to The Wolf Among Us.
The game will be released on the Epic Games Store and "consoles". Based on the first teaser, previous season's well-liked actresses and actors return (Adam Harrington and Erin Yvetter, for sure), while Jared Emerson-Johnson will be in charge of the music. The story will focus on Bigby and Snow.
The makers have not set a release date yet, only confirming that they will be episodically filing this time.

The promotion will start at December 19th and by the end of the year we will be able to get a title daily. It's not yet known what these games will be, but if there is one that is missing from the collection, it's worth it (at least to me). Yeah, and if you missed it, you can get The Wolf Among Us right now for free.
