The latest episode of Inside Xbox is set to premiere on Tuesday, April 16th at 5pm Eastern time and is looking to tease some of what Microsoft has in store for E3 this year. Details are relatively scarce at the moment, but Microsoft Rod Ferguson, head of The Coalition, is set to make an appearance, likely with some new Gears related information to talk about. The hour-long show also looks to show the gameplay premiere of the Warhammer Chaosbane beta as well as a new look into Rage 2 and more details on the Sea of Thieves Anniversary Update. Plus new announcements regarding Game Pass, backwards compatibility, and a few surprises are planning to be made. The description of the show that was posted on Xbox Wire reads as follows:
Our hour-long April episode will explore some exciting Xbox Game Pass news, new details on the much anticipated Anniversary Update for Sea of Thieves, special guest Rod Fergusson from The Coalition, first details and footage of the Warhammer Chaosbane beta, an exclusive look at Rage 2, a handful of exciting Back Compat announcements, and several surprises we’re saving for the show itself.
With a few surprises in store for Xbox fans, it’s certainly possible that one of them is the official announcement of the Xbox One S All Digital Edition. With rumors pointing to the discless console launching on May 7th, this month’s episode of Inside Xbox looks like it will be the perfect time to unveil the new console. The show could also be used to officially announce Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which would pair nicely with the discless Xbox One for players looking to purchase the new console.
It’s hard to say what Microsoft plans to show to off in order to tease E3, as it’s unlikely that any official announcements regarding first party titles will be made, but it’s a definite possibility that they will allude to some new games in the works.
Thankfully we won’t have to wait long to see what Microsoft has to show off on Inside Xbox, and you can be sure that Bring Your Own Games will have a recap of the show then same day it premieres. Until then, be sure to subscribe to BYOG for all of the latest and greatest in gaming.
