Developer Undead Labs revealed State of Decay 3 all the way back in 2020, and at this year’s Xbox Games Showcase, we finally got another trailer.

You can watch the first trailer, which is filled with mind-bending locations and strange enemies, above.

Expect to see more from its magical alligators and catfish as we move closer to its release on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X | S, and PC in 2025.

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater trailer sets up Konami’s remake

Konami has been quiet when it comes to revealing details on its Metal Gear Solid 3 remake, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater. However, during the Xbox Games Showcase, we got see a few new clips of gameplay that include important story beats from the game’s opening moments, Snake using his iconic CQC techniques, and even a fight against a helicopter. Though more than a few major characters, like the Boss herself, made their first appearances in this trailer, we were still left without a release date.

Perfect Dark reboot finally reappears with a first look at gameplay

Perfect Dark has remained in the shadows since it was revealed many years ago, but during today’s Xbox Games Showcase, Microsoft finally gave us a nice long look at what the team at The Initiative and Crystal Dynamics have been up to. The extended look at gameplay shows Agent Dark as she sneaks over and around city streets while taking out enemies with style. Perfect Dark is looking good so far, but we’re still left without a release date. However, the trailer did at least confirm that the title will be available day one on Game Pass.

Fable conjures up a first look at gameplay

Playground Games has shown us a few sneak peeks at its next Fable game, but today’s appearance gave us a solid look at its gameplay for the first time. Specifically, the footage focused on Humphry, a retired hero, as he warns us about what it takes to make it in this new magical world. We’ll learn more about this fresh take on the franchise and its giant toads as we inch closer to its 2025 release on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X | S, and PC.
