Games To Play On XBOX Series X
We take a look at some of the best games to play on the brand-new XBOX Series X.
The biggie. Halo: Combat Evolved is unquestionably the greatest launch game in XBOX history, and if Infinite can enjoy even half the lasting impact of the genre-defining 2001 shooter, you are in for one heck of an adventure. While 343 has struggled to fill Bungie’s boots, each one of its Halo titles has been both stunning and supremely solid from a tech point of view. What few glimpses we have had of Infinite point to the largest worlds in the franchise’s history, with XBOX Series X primed to deliver alien worlds that should awe out eyes. If 343 can deliver a 4K/60fps shooter out of the gate, and it can right the wrongs of Halo 5: Guardians’ campaign, this could be a launch title for the ages.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the top five games of the last decade, so you will understand if we are suitably excited about CD Projekt’s gorgeous sci-fi follow-up. Take the Polish studio’s talent for impeccable world-building, throw the ferocious power of XBOX Series X into the mix, and you have quite the polygon-pushing recipe. With an art style that lends itself to ray tracing likability, this action-RPG should be one of the most visually spectacular third-party titles on the next XBOX.
Outside of Halo Infinite, Ninja Theory’s thought-provoking sequel already feels like the poster girl for empowering XBOX Series X tech. If the reveal trailer’s level of visual fidelity is matched by the final game, Hellblade II could set new standards for motion capture. Senua’s constantly contorting face points to a standard of facial animation XBOX One simply doesn’t have the power to render effectively. We have only seen a slight peek at Senua’s Nordic world, but it already looks very photorealistic. This should be a Series X stunner.
One of the first third-party titles to be confirmed for the next-gen console, Outriders’ shoot-outs should feel extra slick on Series X. People Can Fly’s beloved Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition plays like a sweary dream at 60fps, and we are expecting the same performance out of this Destiny-aping shooter when it hits the next XBOX. Sure, the art style may lack character, but if performance is rock-solid, those sci-fi firefights are going to feel amazing to blast through.
We know next to nothing about Rare’s next title. Is it an adventure game? A survival title? Are there shared-world elements? The one thing we are certain about is Everwild should look the absolute business on XBOX Series X. Sea Of Thieves gives XBOX One X a glorious 4K workout like few other games, so our expectations are already through the roof when it comes to this creature feature. Those stunning visuals should look sumptuous on Series X, while techniques like variable rate shading could bring those bizarre creatures to wonderfully believable life.
