Microsoft just aired its Xbox Games Showcase Extended with plenty of gameplay and details for fans on Xbox consoles and PC.
We saw more about the games presented at the excellent Xbox Games Showcase a few days ago and hear from their developers, on top of more news about other games that weren't included in the main show.
If you didn't have the chance to watch the show live, or simply prefer a more comfortable format, here you can find all the reveals and announcements for your perusal.
Without further ado, you can check out the goodies below.
We start with Cyberpunk 2027's expansion Phantom Liberty, with a tour of one of its locations guided by CR Projekt. The expansion releases on September 26, 2023, for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5.
