"There are some games out there that require mouse and keyboard and those can't come to console today", Microsoft said.

Microsoft says that the stream will feature new information about Xbox Game Pass, Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, Forza Horizon 4, and yes, Crackdown 3.

Microsoft already announced 5 titles that will be coming to Xbox Game Pass this month, and it has announced some more titles that will be joining the service in the coming weeks.

One of the originators of the Battle Royale gaming craze, PUBG is a fan-favorite.

While much of the show's news was Game Pass-centric as you'd probably expect, there were a few surprises. The open-world sandbox arrives worldwide on Xbox One and Windows 10 on February 15. These teams join the likes of Playground Games, Undead Labs, Compulsion Games, Ninja Theory, and The Initiative. The Xbox Live Gold offer is just available from 11/15 until 11/30.

Eight games including Fortnite will be ready to support keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox console in November, with several other game developers committed to support the feature after that.

If you would prefer to purchase your games outright, Microsoft and its partners will be offering discounts on numerous games from 11/22 until 11/30.

Its Black Friday sale will take place from 18-26 November, with the Xbox One X selling for $400.
