The Xbox Digital Broadcast at the Tokyo Game Show 2023 was a relatively low-key affair, compared to the usual high-octane announcements we’re used to seeing from Microsoft – but despite its quieter nature, there was still plenty revealed at TGS, including new titles coming to Xbox Game Pass, and a fresh look at Swery65 and Suda51’s Hotel Barcelona.

There was even a surprise showcase for a new Fallout 76 expansion.
