While we’re keeping a few things under wraps for now, there is already a lot to uncover from this cinematic trailer. First, the location. After Oahu and Ibiza, TDU Solar Crown takes place in Hong Kong, with the team at KT Racing recreating the full island at a 1:1 scale. Second, we are sticking to the core of TDU with open-world racing, luxury cars, living the high life, and more. Third, we have had a first glimpse at the Streets and Sharps, rival clans which will be at the heart of our story. And finally, a release date: Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is planned for September 22, 2022 on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

It’s been a year already since Session, a skateboarding simulation, arrived on Xbox One through Game Preview. Today, the team at crea-ture studios is proud to deliver a major update, adding a new skateshop in Philadelphia, the famous Black Hubba in New York, but also new game modes such as “Skate or Dice” and a more complete replay editor to create your clips and share your gnarly sessions with the world. There still is a lot we want to add for the game’s full release, but until then, you can continue to play Session in Game Preview and even try it for free for two hours!

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is a narrative RPG from Big Bad Wolf Studio, where you play as 3 Vampires from different Camarilla clans. After introducing Leysha last month, today the spotlight shines on Galeb, one of the oldest and most feared Vampires in Boston. Power, wealth, immortality, at one point or another, Galeb has had it all, yet he’s left wanting, grasping for something he’s lost. Or perhaps it was never there to begin with. Discover how our 3 playable characters’ stories intertwine and decide the fate of Boston when Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong releases in February 2022 on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

SteelRising is an action game from Spiders Studio, set during the French Revolution. You will play as Aegis, a state-of-the-art automaton working under Marie-Antoinette’s service. King Louis XVI has gone mad and unleashed his army of robots on the people of Paris, and you are the best chance the Revolution has. Aegis was not designed for war, so keep in mind every encounter can be deadly, and only patience, observation, and reflexes will help you defeat the odds. SteelRising will release in 2022 on Xbox Series X|S.

The Nacon Connect celebrations don’t end here: you can learn more about these games and many others on our Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube channels, and for a limited time you can also head over to the Microsoft Store for discounts on a wide selection of our titles!

Lord of the Rings Gollum gameplay reveal, WRC 10, Blood Bowl 3: Watch Nacon Connect LIVE

Lord of the Rings Gollum gameplay reveal, WRC 10, Blood Bowl 3: Watch Nacon Connect LIVE

French publisher Nacon is about to hold a live presentation full of gameplay reveals.

The Nacon Connect presentation takes place on July 6 at 6pm BST UK time. You can watch it live by clicking play on the YouTube embed below, which will be added nearer the start time.

According to Nacon, the broadcast will feature 13 exciting announcements, as well as three exclusive reveals.

“With only one day until we lift the lid on 13 exciting announcements for our games and accessories,” reads a Nacon post.

“If that wasn’t enough we’ve also got 3 EXCLUSIVE REVEALS in the pipeline. What are you looking forward to most?”

As you can see from the promotional material further down the page, viewers will get a look at games such as Blood Bowl 3, WRC 10, and Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is another game with a lot of fanfare. The action RPG is said to feature a “heart-pounding story” with plenty of player choice.

“Play as 3 vampires, harness their powers, embrace their desires, and face their demons in a heart-pounding story in which your choices decide the fate of Boston,” reads the official description.

Other games to be featured during the event include Rogue Lords, Steel Rising, Roguebook, and skateboarding game Session.

Session is already available on Steam Early Access, but is still awaiting an official release.

“Inspired by the golden era of skateboarding, Session’s primary goal is to make you experience what skateboarding really is; an incredible culture where there are no other goals other than expressing your creativity and achieving success through hard work, perseverance and bits of madness for no one else other than yourself.

“Be ready to play the most authentic and grounded skateboarding experience in the most legendary spots on earth, film and make the gnarliest skate parts out there.”

Arguably the biggest game of all is Lord of the Rings Gollum, which is the first of countless LotR games in development.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is described as a story-driven action adventure game set in Middle-earth.

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the story revolves around Gollum’s hunt for the One Ring.

According to the official description, the Lord of the Rings spinoff game will feature stealth elements, huge levels and a dual personality gameplay mechanic.

Based on previous reports, the split-personality mechanic will lead to some interesting choices during each chapter. Presumably this will impact the ending of the game.

Daedalic Entertainment has signed up to develop and publish multiple Lord of the Rings releases, which is great news after a long absence for the series on consoles.
