After a few weeks of high anticipation from their fan base, Microsoft has announced a line-up of games that will be available on the Xbox Series X. It’s impressive. So, without further ado let’s jump right in.
Scorn is an Xbox exclusive horror game and was one of the first announced. The game gives off some serious alien vibes and appears to take place in a nightmarish bloody world. Another Series X exclusive is The Medium, this is a psychological horror made with the developer from Blair Witch and composer from Silent Hills, giving us high hopes. With two strong looking exclusive games already announced my expectations are going up!
Another game announced is Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. With its predecessor having been released in 2004 there is already plenty of hype for this game. The first-person vampire play-style on the new specs looks promising. More series-based games will be available, including Halo: Infinite. This was the first game announced for the Series X and is set to release at the same time as the console. It has also been revealed that Halo: Infinite will implement the new Smart Delivery feature, meaning you only have to purchase the game once to have access to it on any Xbox console. A feature we hope to see implemented with many games in the future.
But Wait, There’s More
A game that everyone is looking forward to is Cyberpunk 2077. This will also make use of the new Smart Delivery feature, taking some worry off fans’ minds, as this game is expected to come with a hefty price tag. CD Projekt Red have announced that while Cyberpunk 2077 will be available from the release of the Series X, a “proper, full-blown next-gen version” will be available at a later date that will make full use of the Series X’s capability.
Assassins Creed Valhalla by Ubisoft is another big title making it’s way to the Series X. Although not much has been confirmed, and the trailer only boosted the hype, we know that Valhalla will focus more heavily on RPG elements as you play the role of a Viking Chieftain.
A few other big names making it over to the Series X include Battlefield 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine, Dying light 2, Dirt 5 and, after a delay in March 2020, Watchdogs: Legion will be releasing cross-generation to the Series X.
Kickin’ It Old School
Yesterday Microsoft announced that the Series X will be going hard into backwards compatibility, with many titles being compatible from day one. Some games even being able to make use of the Series X’s improved hardware and 4K definition.
