This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, we focus on Microsoft’s Xbox Developer Direct 2024, our first look forward on the yr to return from one of many large three console makers.

The massive draw was Indiana Jones and The Nice Circle from Wolfenstein maker MachineGames, a blockbuster motion journey clearly set as much as be Microsoft’s reply to Uncharted. However there was additionally the brilliant-looking Hellblade 2, the eye-catching sequel from Ninja Concept we have been trying ahead to for years.

Then there’s Avowed, a fantasy RPG to fulfill these ready patiently for the following Elder Scrolls and who may choose a bit extra color to their role-playing than in Starfield. Lastly, we noticed Visions of Mana from Sq. Enix and Ara: Historical past Untold for PC. However was this sufficient to make for a satisfying present – and extra importantly, set the tone for what’s hopefully a greater yr of Xbox first-party launches than in 2023? I am joined by Eurogamer’s Ed Nightingale, Victoria Kennedy and Liv Ngan to debate.
