The Xbox showcase will kick the event off with news about the latest games coming to the Xbox Games Pass. Halo Infinite is almost a necessity at the event following its disastrous reveal at E3 2019. While developers have kept fans in the loop via the Inside Infinite blogs, the gameplay of the campaign mode is yet to be seen.

Hellblade 2 is the sequel to 2017’s Senua’s Sacrifice. The game was originally announced at the Game Awards 2019 with an epic trailer. However, everything it showcased was in CGI, and we have not gotten to see much gameplay since. Thus, it is almost inevitable that we will be seeing this Xbox and PC exclusive title in Cologne.

Any other Star Wars titles from developers such as Ubisoft or EA are also welcome additions to the event.

The Future Games Show takes place the following day and features the release of some anticipated indie games.
