What to expect at the upcoming Xbox and Bethesda Developer_Direct January 2023
Xbox and Bethesda have specifically said to expect “the latest information on Xbox games launching in the next few months, including The Elder Scrolls Online, Forza Motorsport, Minecraft Legends and Redfall.” One name notably missing from the list is Starfield, but Bethesda has bigger plans for the long-awaited title.
“To dedicate the proper amount of time to a deep dive into Bethesda Game Studios’ Starfield, a standalone show is in the works,” the Xbox Wire staff wrote.
As for what fans can expect from the games expected to be there, it all starts with The Elder Scrolls Online. Studio Director Matt Firor will discuss 2023’s big Chapter update, including “the latest regions of Tamriel to become playable in ESO, as well as a major new feature coming in the game’s biggest update this year.”
If that’s not enough ESO, the Developer_Direct will be followed by an ESO Chapter Reveal Event that will delve deeper into everything coming to the game. If you’re interested, you can also watch the ESO Chapter Revel Event on IGN’s YouTube.
Turn 10 Studios plans to share “more gameplay and exciting new details” for Forza Motorsport, and Mojang Studios will provide an “insider’s look at the PvP multiplayer experience in Minecraft Legends.”
Finally, Arkane Austin will showcase “several minutes of gameplay” from Redfall, and that will include single and multiplayer gameplay and details on combat, customization, bosses, the open world, and more.
