Xbox fans rejoice as the Xbox Developer Direct is returning for 2024, promising a good look for the exclusive Indiana Jones game, a follow-up event for Elder Scrolls Online, and much more.

Game reveals

Scheduled for January 18, 12pm Pacific Standard Time (PST), the highlight of the show will be the much anticipated Indiana Jones game by developer MachineGuns, which was confirmed in June 2023 to be an Xbox and PC exclusive. The 10-minute showcase of the action-adventure game will reveal gameplay mechanics, setting and story, and the premiere of the first gameplay trailer. This segment expects to hype player interest by putting the audience in the archaeologist's rugged shoes.

Other segments are not a bore as Ninja Theory will provide a behind-the-scenes view of the development of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2. No release date is promised but, hopefully, fans of the series see their wish come true.
