Atomic Heart will be on Game Pass day one

Atomic Heart is back with another stunning trailer, but no release date.
At the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, we got treated to a fresh trailer for indie retro-future shooter Atomic Heart.
Watch on YouTube
Atomic Heart is a first-person shooter taking place in an alternate-future Soviet Union. The world looks like it’s the 1950s, but it has the equivalent of modern technologies like robots, holograms and even the internet. P-3, the game’s protagonist, is a government agent sent to investigate a industrial facility gone quiet.
You’ve likely seen Atomic Heart’s impressive visuals in various RTX trailers from Nvidia, and no doubt in other showcases of the best-looking upcoming indie games. This new trailer does not disappoint in that regard.
Though the trailer doesn’t offer a release date, it does confirm that the game will launch into Xbox Game Pass, across PC, console and cloud.

Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase reaction – Gamers win as Game Pass starts to show off

Tom, Alex, and Dorrani take a look at the Xbox E3 presentation, which might have been Xbox’s best ever showing.
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, perhaps the biggest event of E3 2021, has been and gone. At a tight 90 minutes, packed end to end with game trailers and announcements, it was a big win for Xbox. Without Sony to battle head to head with, Xbox had the limelight to itself and didn’t squander the opportunity. Watch me, Alex, and Dorrani discuss all the news and listen to us get pretty excited about Game Pass.

Sure, the Xbox presser was missing some big games and didn’t really have any “mic drop” moments, but it was a very impressive showing that should reassure Xbox owners and potential owners that the Xbox ecosystem is one worth being part of.
What did you make of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase? Did Xbox do enough to win you over? Are you already a Game Pass member, now smiling from ear to ear? Let us know in the comments section below.

Xbox Games Showcase: Extended coming Thursday, promises conversation with Hellblade dev and more

Xbox is hosting another showcase this week.
Microsoft has announced that its E3 2021 events are not yet done. On Thursday, June 17, the platform holder will be hosting the Xbox Games Showcase: Extended, a special showcase featuring developer interviews and a deeper look at some of their projects.
Watch on YouTube
The event takes place 10am PT, 1pm ET, 6pm UK. So far, Microsoft confirmed attendance of Hellblade maker Ninja Theory, Psychonauts’ Double Fine, Sea of Thieves creator Rare, as well as The Outer Worlds/Avowed developer Obsidian. More partners will also be part of this showcase.
Although Microsoft did not say whether some of the games missing from its main E3 showcase will show up here, the fact that Ninja Theory is part of this could mean that we’re getting some look at Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga.
This may also be true for upcoming RPG Avowed. That said, it’s probably worth tempering your expectations, as any big reveal would have likely been part of the main Sunday.
