New Xbox Hardware Teased For Gamescom


Microsoft is preparing for Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, and has started to tease what we can expect out of the show. Among other surprises, the company is promising “new hardware and accessories” for Xbox. But don’t get your hopes up for a massive console reveal just yet.The tease comes from a Major Nelson blog post detailing the company’s Gamescom plans. It will be hosting a live Inside Xbox show from the Xbox booth on Tuesday, August 21, which boasts “lots of news, all-new Xbox hardware and accessories, and features on upcoming titles that we can’t wait to tell you more about and perhaps even a few surprises.” It’s doubtful the company would out the successor to the Xbox One X this way, so set your expectations around possible hardware revisions or controllers.The post also teases that Gamescom will feature demos of Forza Horizon 4, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, plus the first playable demos of State of Decay 2’s Daybreak Pack and a new mode for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.Last year, Microsoft’s Gamescom presentation included a special Minecraft Xbox One X and a special “Project Scorpio” special edition that paid homage to the first Xbox.
