'Halo: Fireteam Raven' brings its co-op action to the arcade

The next new Halo game isn't for Xbox One or PC -- instead Halo: Fireteam Raven is an arcade machine built for four-player cooperative play. A 130-inch 4K screen lets all the players take aim on a rail shooter experience in the environment of the first Halo game. You won't play as Master Chief, however, as players take the role of ODST troops fighting Covenant aliens for control of the ringworld alongside the series star and other familiar characters.

'No Man's Sky' will come to Xbox One June 24th

In March Hello Games announced that No Man's Sky would come to Xbox One this summer, and now we have a release date: July 24th. Hello Games founder Sean Murray made the announcement while showing off the upcoming Next update on Inside Xbox, but so far we haven't heard if it applies to PS4 and Steam as well. No Man's Sky Next will include expanded support for multiplayer, as well as 4K on Xbox One X, plus all of the game's previously revealed updates. According to Murray, this isn't the end for NMS either, as Hello Games plans to continue to support it this way "for the foreseeable future."

The fourth installment of Call of Duty's Black Ops franchise has abandoned single-player in favor of a multiplayer-only focus...including a battle royale mode. Yes, the series is cashing in on the last-player-standing mode made popular by Fortnite and PUBG, but it's also got more Zombies experiences and traditional multiplayer content. And like Destiny 2 before it, Activision's latest game will run online play through Blizzard's Battle.net platform. The game is slated for release on October 12th.

Throughout gaming's storied history, there's been some wild hardware like N-Gage, the Barcode Battler and, more recently, Nintendo Labo. But we haven't seen anything quite like the Ocelot Arcade System, a homebrew console that uses an oscilloscope as its display. Yep, an oscilloscope. The console can display 3D vector graphics in real time and deliver four-channel polyphonic sound through a built-in amplifier and speaker.

At this point, it seems like driving a forklift in the world of Shenmue again is even more of a pipe dream. Development on the third entry in the groundbreaking series kicked into gear in 2015 after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign; after the last postponement, Shenmue 3 was scheduled to drop in the back half of 2018. However, another delay means you'll have to wait until 2019 for the next part of Ryo Hazuki's story.
