The Xbox Games Showcase Extended has now wrapped up and, as intended, we got extended looks at a ton of the games featured in its main showcase on Sunday. Bethesda’s Pete Hines discussed Starfield, Redfall, and Fallout 76; Playground Games gave a deep dive into its upcoming Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels DLC; and we got new gameplay from small titles including Ara: History Untold and Pentiment.
GSC Game World also shared the opening of STALKER 2 alongside a developer diary showing what it’s like to work on game amid the Ukraine conflict. Another surprise announcement came in the form of confirmation that hit PC game Valheim is coming to Xbox next year following it being released on PC Game Pass this fall.
Valheim is Coming to Xbox
The show opened with an announcement trailer for Valheim on Xbox, the game’s first platform outside of PC. Valheim was confirmed to be coming to PC Game Pass yesterday but following handful of gameplay clips Microsoft also confirmed that it was coming to console.
The game will be released this fall for PC Game Pass and will later make its way to Xbox One and Series in spring 2023. The Steam, Microsoft Store, and Xbox versions of Valheim will be fully crossplay.
