Recap of Xbox's "Inside Xbox" from gamescom 2019

Seems that the PR people for Xbox Canada wanted to make things somewhat simplier for us here at Xbox Addict, as we try to sum up all things that were presented on the live stream of Inside Xbox from gamescom 2019. 

So, without further delay, check out the summary below, and remember, we are focused on Xbox centric news.  There was some PC and mobile news, but we are mainly focused on Microsoft’s Console

Main News

The folks from The Coalition revealed the all-new Horde mode for Gears 5, which adds new gameplay features and the Ultimate abilities to this signature mode. They also announced the Halo: Reach character pack is included as part of Gears 5 Ultimate Edition on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam, and with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Seven new titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass including three titles that will be available today (August 19):

   1. Devil May Cry 5 (Console Game Pass & Game Pass Ultimate)

   2. Stellaris (Console Game Pass & Game Pass Ultimate)

   3. Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate)

Two brand new controllers  were unviled including the Xbox Wireless Controller – Night Ops Special Edition and the Xbox Wireless Controller – Sport Blue Special Edition.

Aaron Greenberg revealed that X019 will take place November 14-16 at the Copper Box Arena in London, UK and a special episode of Inside Xbox will kick off all the news.
