Microsoft’s highly-anticipated next Xbox console, the Xbox Series X, is launching in late 2020, but while it’s still a few months away, we’re already getting a sneak-peek at the games that will be hitting the next-gen machine.
For your viewing pleasure (and convenience), here are 5 of the most anticipated games coming to Xbox Series X:
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
After teasing the announcement earlier in the week, Ubisoft has officially unveiled the next entry in the best-selling Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. The new game will throws players axe-first into ninth-century England, an age of warring kingdoms and Viking conquest. Players will take control of a new assassin named Eivor, a fierce Viking raider, as they aim to grow and expand their own empire.
Bright Memory: Infinite
Bright Memory is a game which created some buzz when first revealed for PC. It’s a shooter/slasher developed by a single individual, and combines fast, frantic gunplay with melee combat.
The Medium is a third-person, psychological horror game that takes cues from classic entries in the genre. It looks very Silent Hill-esque, with the original Silent Hill composer on board to assist with all things spooky-sounding.
Scarlet Nexus is an anime-inspired action game, like that of Devil May Cry, whereby the protagonist uses psychic abilities and weapons against a plethora of bizarre monsters.
Second Extinction is what you get if Left 4 Dead and Turok had a baby. This team-based shooter pits 3 players against a horde of dinosaurs, ranging from raptors to the t-rex.
