Microsoft reveal big Xbox One E3 announcement tied to console and Tomb Raider update

MICROSOFT have been ramping up the tension ahead of their big E3 reveal this year which could prove to be the best for the Xbox One so far.

UPDATE: Microsoft have confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider is still only a timed-exclusive for Xbox One, following confusion over whether it had become exclusive to launch on one console.
Xbox Australia muddied the waters over the upcoming title, writing on Facebook:  "We cant update the image but Forza 6 should be added here as Xbox One exclusive.
"And for those wondering; Rise of the Tomb Raider will be Xbox exclusive.
"Not timed exclusive but exclusive."
But when asked about the situation on Twitter, Xbox chief Phil Spencer clarified what he knew about it.
"There has been no change to our deal on TR, same as before when I answered.  Timed," his answer read.
"We are working with CD on TR to make it great on Xbox this Holiday, that's our goal and 100% of our focus."
And big E3 news has been promised which could be tied to the console itself.
Having announced the features of the June update of the Xbox One system software for preview members earlier this week, the team also explained why the latest patch may seem a little smaller than usual.
An Xbox Program Manager explained on the company forums: "If this month feels a little light, don’t worry – we are working on some planned *BIG* E3 announcements.
"In the meantime, we will be continuing to preview the items previously released to continue to get feedback and work towards making them available to everyone, so keep that feedback coming!
The June update includes small tweaks to the Party app to help Microsoft understand issues reported by the community and leave the field wide open for some big changes in the near future.
Xbox already look to be heading a strong line up for E3, with many expecting the company's top franchises to deliver some new tantalising news at the event.
Halo 5: Guardians will most likely feature prominently and will be the perfect the platform to unveil some campaign footage.
Other titles such as the timed-exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider, free-to-play Fable Legends, Forza Motorsport 6 and the new Gears of War project also look set to shine and could give Xbox One sales a boost heading into the tail-end of summer.
Microsoft have already revealed that they're a hard time getting their run time at the event down to just 90 minutes.
Speaking on Twitter, Xbox chief Phil Spencer explained: "We did a rough end to end run of show yesterday, still too long.
"I like the games we have in the show, not easy to edit it down.
"We have our daily live show that we can use for some announces as well, we can use that time for some.
