Microsoft will introduce new Xbox hardware and accessories next month

All-new Xbox hardware’ promised for Gamescom

Considering the fact that it wasn't at E3 2018, Gamescom may just be the ideal place to debut the controller, with hundreds of thousands of visitors in attendance. If it had anything of Scarlett worth showing, I suspect they'd have done so at last month's E3. Courtesy of a blog post, Microsoft revealed that a special edition of Inside Xbox will focus on news, all-new Xbox hardware and accessories, and features on upcoming titles.

One of the major new reveals will be an all-new PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mode coming to the Xbox One.

Interestingly, the company initially described the stream as featuring 'all-new Xbox hardware' in the post, although quickly edited the blurb presumably because people were losing their shit and expecting a new Xbox console. In another, similar blog post, Microsoft says it will unveil new Xbox One bundles, and there is a possibility we won't get to see new hardware, with a possibility of the company simply just launching new bundles of the existing Xbox One consoles. We'll just have to tune in to the live show at 4:30 PM CEST on Tuesday, August 21 to find out.

Hopefully, Xbox will have even more up its sleeves when Gamescom rolls around this year.

Lastly, Microsoft announced a handful of games that will be present on the show floor at their booth space. It named some of those games in today's announcement - Forza Horizon 4, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and State of Decay 2 - but the rest are still largely a mystery.

As well as new hardware, MS is promising a fresh look at new titles. And although there's the mention of "a few surprises" it's unclear whether they'll announce any major new AAA games.
