ID@Xbox reveals new indie games at E3 2019

A lengthy sizzle reel for new indie games from ID@Xbox was revealed at Microsoft's E3 2019 presentation.


Loads of new games are landing on the Xbox One thanks to ID@Xbox, the premiere program to bring independently developed games to Microsoft's gaming console. Part of the live streamed presentation was a fresh new sizzle real that showed off no fewer than 12 new games coming to Microsoft-powered consoles and PC.

Given the sheer number of names shown off, gamers had to pay close attention to the video to catch the title of each game. Don't worry, we were on top of it. Among the games shown in the new sizzle reel were Dead Static Drive, Pathologic 2, Star Renegades, Afterparty, TABS, The Good Life, Cross Code, Creature in the Well, Riverbond, Blazing Chrome, Supermarket Shriek, and Totem Teller. Even better, the presenters from Microsoft revealed that all of the games shown off in the new trailer will be available at launch through Xbox Game Pass.

In addition to this, the folks at Microsoft also used the E3 2019 Xbox briefing as an opportunity to announce Xbox Game pass for PC. But wait, there's more! Microsoft also unveiled Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which will be made available for for $15 per month. To sweeten the deal, new users can join Xbox Game Pass starting today for just one dollar down. Those 100 pennies will be enough for players to secure the Xbox Game Pass on both PC and Xbox One.

The announcements from E3 keep rolling in, and many of the games — including Moon Studio's upcoming release Ori and the Will of the Wisps — will be made available to Xbox Game Pass at launch. Be sure to keep it tuned here to Shacknews for more announcements and reveals from Microsoft and Xbox at this year's E3 2019 presentation.
