Inside Xbox: Microsoft shares first footage from Xbox Series X games

This was a day that many gamers were anxiously anticipating, because it marked the first time that Microsoft showed gameplay footage from select Xbox Series X titles. This was done through an Inside Xbox stream, which took place partially due to the cancellation of E3 2020, and also partially because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The stream offered a first look at gameplay footage and teasers for titles that are under development at Xbox partners. It did this in 4K, in order to showcase 120 frames per second, hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing and more. There were also glimpses at super-fast loading times, as well as the Smart Delivery service that will allow games ownership across multiple generations to occur simply and in a user friendly fashion.

The games that were revealed and showcased today included:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla (Ubisoft)
  • Bright Memory Infinite (Playism)
  • Call of the Sea (Raw Fury)
  • Chorus (Deep Silver)
  • DiRT 5 (Codemasters)
  • Madden NFL 21 (EA Sports)
  • Scarlet Nexus (Bandai Namco Entertainment)
  • Scorn (Ebb Software)
  • Second Extinction (Systemic Reaction)
  • The Ascent (Neon Giant/Curve Digital)
  • The Medium (Bloober Team)
  • Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 (Paradox Interactive)
  • Yakuza: Like a Dragon (SEGA)
