What to expect from Microsoft's Gamescom 2015 conference: New Xbox One games & surprises

Microsoft hasn't specified exactly what it's set to show off during the keynote, but it had hinted that it'll talk about three Xbox One exclusives as well as some unexpected surprises. We're expecting it to be one of the highlights of Gamescom this year, because Sony isn't hosting its own conference so Microsoft can take the entire spotlight for itself.

The Xbox One exclusives we're expecting to hear about are Quantum Break, Crackdown and Scalebound. We might also find out more about Rise of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5: Guardians.

A tweet from Xbox's Phil Spencer has us convinced that we'll be getting a final release date for Quantum Break, and that it might not be too long to wait.

We'll be bringing you all of the news from Microsoft's conference as well as the rest of the announcements from Gamescom throughout the week, but for now, why not take a look at the following games articles to help you pass the time before 3pm arrives?
