Both the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X are officially dropping on Tuesday, November 10th, and you’ll be able to get hands-on with a selection of launch titles from the minute you power on your new system.
Microsoft has stated that the console will have over 60 brand-new launch titles and over 40 older titles that have been optimised for the system this Holiday, but for now, only a few have been confirmed as day one releases.
We’ll keep adding to this list as more are revealed, but for now, here’s what you can look forward to:
Which of these Xbox Series S / X launch titles are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments.
Fraser has an unhealthy obsession for all things related to Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series, and has an intimate knowledge of sports games on Xbox One. He also supports Walsall FC – that team in the West Midlands you’ve never heard of.
@FraserG I have a question, if I use a digital xbox one code on the series s would it work
@AkashTheGod99 We haven’t had confirmation of this yet, but I can’t see why not. It’s already been confirmed that nearly all Xbox One games will be compatible on Series S & Series X.
They really need to get Flight Simulator out at launch. They need some sort of heavy hitter to showcase the power of the console. I’m hoping that’s the big reveal in their likely final event before the launch. I’d like to see the Medium and Call of the Sea out soon as well.
Really wanting more info on the launch of The Medium, The Ascent, Call of the Sea, and Scorn. All four were big parts of the May showcase, all are exclusive. On one hand they would make for a good launch lineup, on the other hand 2021 is looking pretty barren and would be good to have consistent Game Pass content throughout the year.
has anyone else realized where to find the xss pre order and that the xsx pre order site is down on amazon
Unfortunately seeing the launch line ups on paper has had the effect of pushing me to PS5 first.
I can play some of the Xbox line up on my laptop, the rest on X1X and there just wasn’t the justification to get one until the first big experiences hit.
I was gonna get games like AC Valhalla and Dirt 5 on PS5 but have been unable to preorder one, so assuming I can nab myself a XBSX preorder then I’ll be buying them on Xbox. And don’t forget Cyberpunk 2077! Funny thing is, I’ve got the Cyberpunk ltd edition Xbox One X which includes a free copy of the game, which I probably won’t even play on the One X as hopefully I’ll be playing it on the Series X!
The other games will just be gamepass games and the free upgrades to what I already have.
Everything coming out about the PS5 has really put me off getting one. The new Spiderman was the only real game from their launch line up I wanted. Will probably leave it until the end of next year before picking one up.
The line-up is looking pretty good, and a whole 9 days earlier for us lot in the UK too.. I don’t see Yakuza Like a Dragon on PS5 which is a big factor on deciding what to get first
I like the line up, gonna hold of on the ps5 til ratchet and clank…
@fraserg any word on the Witcher 3 patch? Holding off for that ray tracing patch, lovely, that will be a worthy one
@FraserG Wait, Avengers has been confirmed for the launch date ? In its upgraded version, I mean ? Do we have specifis, will there be a new physical edition (with the mention “Optimized for Series X” on the back) ?
I was really waiting for next gen to get my hands on this game, so if this is true, I’m more than happy !
Looking forward to Falconeer, Dirt, Tetris, and Yakuza. However, with how the PS5 pre-orders went I’m not hopeful I’ll be able to get the Series X on launch day tho
That’s a nice line-up, and I’m glad Game Pass is there to back up any purchases I decide to make on the day. I’m absolutely going to get DMC5: Special Edition; just pump it into my veins.
@Bobobiwan Yeah, Square Enix previously said the game would be available when the Series X launches.
“Extremely fast load times, boosted resolution and fidelity, improved texturing and armor destruction, ray tracing, and more”.
Any sane person waits a year after launch before buying a new console. You have a much better selection of games, problems with the OS are ironed out and some of those launch titles are now dirt cheap (eg AC Valhalla will be £20 this time next year)
@FraserG All right, thanks ! As a marvel fanboy, I was waiting for this version in order to debut my playthrought.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is going to be the first game I play on the XSX! Cant wait… well, can wait, I wont touch it until the XSX arrives so i can play it there!
Other than that, looking forward for Observer: System Redux, Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Watch Dogs: Legion (another game I’ll wait to play on the XSX.)
At some point between now and then I want to play every single Gears of War game, except 5, so i can play that one at its best. But then again… maybe all those BC 360 Gear games will be even better on the XSX…
The Falconeer looks intriguing, but will have to wait until im through all the other stuff! Maybe, just maybe, I’ll buy it day one just to support the team.
So much to play… if i spend a single day bored between now and next summer, its all on me!!!
My mate and I are super hopeful that Sea of Thieves will get the Smart Delivery upgrade at launch. We both play on PC currently, but his rig is a bit older and getting a performance boost from the new console would be fab. Especially as you can still use keyboard and mouse with it!
Gears Tactics and Yakuza will keep me busy for quite some time I suspect. Looking forward to it.
I will a couple of years before I get my Xbox. I was get one on launch but the Oculus Quest 2 will be my christmas gift this year.
The launch titles also arent impressive. Most of those games I already can play on my pc so, no need to spend another 300$ just for a better resolution.
Going to pick up AC Valhalla day one with my Series S! Then going to jump into game pass, want to play Gears ultimate, sea of thieves and hellblade are the first ones on my list! Not really touched Xbox much since 360 days.
