Over 20 XBOX ONE Launch Titles Confirmed, Still No Release Date
The Gamescom 2013 press conferences out of Germany run the bulk of the day today, with Microsoft's having already concluded. It was a small, private, invitation-only affair, rather than the big public show they make at E3 each year, but had plenty of news. They did not introduce a specific release date for the upcoming Xbox One console, but did give a confirmed list of launch titles - 23 of them - for the system's debut in November 2013.
The biggest news outside of the confirmed list was for, naturally, European gamers, who will receive a copy of FIFA 14 for the Xbox One with all pre-orders as a pack-in game. No word on Japanese or North American/other pack-in titles yet. Fable Legends is the next title in the series, an Xbox One exclusive, and will feature four-player co-op in game-defined classes. Ryse has co-op, too, and Ubisoft is introducing a new fighting game exclusive to the system called Fighter Within as a launch title.
Check out the full list of launch titles (with Developer, Publisher) below and start planning your late Autumn purchases. EA's press conference is next at 10am EDT, with Sony, who is expected to announce a release date for the PlayStation 4, at 1pm EDT.
