  • Dirt 5's racing doesn't immediately look like a step above current-gen consoles, but its trailer did emphasize reflections and particle effects, which the Xbox Series X may boost.
  • Bright Memory Infinite is the semi-sequel to a Chinese first-person combat game made by a single developer. Its premiere footage was a blurry mess of polished, high-speed combat, full of Matrix-style time manipulation.
  • Scorn. What exactly is Scorn? Its footage didn't make its gameplay clear, as it lingered over haunting imagery straight out of an HR Giger production.
  • More Scorn.
  • We caught a brief glimpse in Scorn of some dramatic human eyes trapped in an exoskeleton of sorts.
  • A blink-and-you'd-miss-it snippet of what Madden NFL 21 will look like on Xbox Series X.
  • Chorus. Serious vibes of Remedy's Control here.
  • Dramatic zoom of the hero's realistic face in Chorus.
  • Chorus appears to combine spaceship combat and run-and-battle adventuring.
  • A vague tease of whatever Call of the Sea's puzzle gameplay will be.
  • Will Call of the Sea be drawn up in cartoony style? It's unclear.

Microsoft kicked off a months-long promotional blitz for the upcoming Xbox Series X today with footage from 13 titles coming to the system "in the launch window." That's ahead of a promised "hundreds" of games from dozens of developers coming through 2021.

All the titles discussed today will run at full 4K resolutions and "up to 120 frames per second" on the Xbox Series X, Microsoft said, with support for "hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing" to boot. Microsoft is also touting the Series X's high-speed SSD storage and high-bandwidth DirectStorage API as enabling "super-fast load time" in these titles. The majority of the games will be available through Microsoft's previously announced Smart Delivery program, which lets players buy a game once and play it across multiple generations of Xbox consoles. That means some of these titles may release for the Xbox One before the Series X launches, then provide free Series X upgrades if and when customers purchase the new console.

Cyberpunk 2077 was the first game to confirm it would use Smart Delivery earlier in the year, and the Viking-themed Assassin's Creed Valhalla announced compatibility earlier this month. All titles developed by Microsoft's internal Xbox Game Studios will also make use of Smart Delivery.

  • The Medium, which appears to involve developers from the Silent Hill series, emphasized photorealistic faces in its reveal.
  • The Ascent appears to slap Blade Runner's aesthetic onto an action RPG. We're okay with that.
  • Top-down isometric combat in The Ascent.
  • Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 emphasized a lot of detailed crowds in its reveal footage.
  • Atmospheric first-person combat in Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2.
  • Second Extinction is a co-op shooter pitting you and friends against dinosaurs. A lot of them.
  • Scarlet Nexus is Bandai Namco's latest third-person anime slasher.
  • Overworld traversal in Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2.
