The Xbox Series X and Series S are Microsoft’s next-gen consoles that will bring all-new graphics, faster load times, and plenty of ways to enjoy all of the games you love digitally through Xbox Game Pass, the Smart Delivery system, and backward compatibility. We’ve learned quite a bit about the Xbox Series X and Series S’s impressive specs as well as what the consoles look like. In fact, based on what we know so far, it looks like the Xbox Series X will be very stiff competition for Sony’s PlayStation 5.

But console wars always come down to one thing: the games. The Xbox Series X and Series S already has quite a few first-party and third-party titles in its lineup, including flagship titles like Halo Infinite, Avowed, and the new Fable. What else do you have to look forward to playing on the Xbox Series X?

Xbox Series X Launch Games

While the Xbox Series X isn’t launching with any major first-party next-gen exclusives, it will have several first-party Optimized for Series X/S re-launches, such as Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps. You should also expect quite a few third-party titles on the console on Nov. 10, also fully Optimized for Series X/S.

Xbox Smart Delivery will also enable players to upgrade current-gen versions of select titles to the next-gen Optimized version free of charge, including Asssasin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion.
