Xbox Series X gameplay footage: 13 games revealed
Here's what the new Xbox Series X games will look like.
Microsoft has finally revealed what we've all been waiting for: just what the first Xbox Series X game footage looks like.
An online presentation (naturally, given the current Covid-19 situation) was our closest look yet as to what the the games on the Xbox Series X will look like.
In all, there were 13 games that showed off footage - including the already announced Assassin's Creed Valhalla. While the footage on show was rather brief, it was good to see the sort of quality of gaming we are going to see on next-gen consoles such as the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5.
It has to be noted, however, that these aren't the biggest games on show. Apart from Assassin's Creed, we're yet to see the likes of Halo and Gears of War (and let's not forget that we are still waiting for a Forza reveal). These will likely come at a later time.
For now, though, here are 13 trailers for the upcoming games - if you want to see sheer quality, then head to the Chorus, scares then Scorn looks ace and for driving mayhem, then Dirt 5 is your friend.
- These are the best Xbox One X games and the best Xbox One controllers.
- This is (currently) the best games console you can buy right now
