During its E3 press conference, Microsoft showed footage from many new titles including Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 5, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Fallout 76, Metro Exodus, and Kingdom Hearts 3.

The big new addition to Forza Horizon 4 is dynamic seasons, which will allow the game world to transition between spring, summer, fall and winter for all players, introducing new possibilities and hazards in real-time.

From column A the biggest star has to be the McLaren Senna.

These are joined by just about every other class of vehicle you can think of, from hot hatchbacks through off-road buggies and SUVs, to the more unusual inclusion of an old London taxi.

The most striking aspect of the new gaming environment though is seasonal changes, and they're truly attractive.

In all the company showed off 52 games, 15 of which were world premieres, Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox unit, told the crowd at the Microsoft Theater. In the demo below, you can see the game in action, including the new dynamic seasons system, which adjusts the weather periodically and creates different driving experiences and events to keep players coming back for more. The Game Pass redemption code will be delivered digitally to your email address within 24 hours after purchase and can be redeemed through your Xbox console.

Forza Horizon 4 is set to release on the 2 of October of this year for both Xbox One and PC. The game will have full 4K and HDR support on Xbox One X, and will support cross-play and cross-save across Xbox One and Windows 10.
