Xbox Extended Showcase: More on Hellblade 2, Forza, Hi-Fi Rush, Lies of P and High Life

Shortly after the Xbox Showcase from the weekend, Microsoft submitted an Extended Showcase and there was actually some information around.

The regular showcase is followed a few days later by the Xbox Games Showcase Extended – which has become more or less the norm for Microsoft presentations. Big surprises aren’t usually there anymore, it’s more about supplementary info, interviews and behind-the-scenes material. And Microsoft did indeed have some interesting additions and announcements coming up.

In an extensive developer diary, Ninja Theory gave an insight into performance capturing for the highly anticipated Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, which was introduced with a new trailer at the first showcase. If you are interested in something like this, you should definitely not miss the video:

To Forza Motorsport, which is finally due to appear on October 10th, there was also a juicy second helping. As part of an extensive gameplay demo, Turn 10 presented the racing simulation’s career mode:
