    • Xbox Game Pass: Over 100 games for one low price.
    • Machine learning allows for FastStart which is twice as fast as current title starting. Will launch in June update this month.

    • Forza Horizon 4 & Crackdown 3 will launch on Game Pass when they release.
    • The Division, The Elder Scrolls Online, and Fallout 4 playable today on Xbox Game Pass.

Overall a fairly solid outing from Microsoft. As Phil Spencer pointed out, this E3 was the largest and most diverse of E3 presentations that they’ve been a part of. Ending the show with the trailer for Cyberpunk 2077  was a really nice touch. Easily for me, the titles I got most hyped about were the reveals of Sekiro, Cyberpunk 2077, and Cuphead DLC. See you later tonight for the Bethesda conference.
