Huge Xbox Series X announcement this week will reveal new console’s FIRST games


MICROSOFT is revealing some of the first Xbox Series X games this week.

Better still, we’ll get to see actual gameplay – showcasing the next-gen graphics of the upcoming console.

The Xbox Series X is coming out later this year

Rather than hosting a proper event, Microsoft is using a virtual livestream.

This special Inside Xbox stream will take place on May 7.

And it’ll be our first proper look at Xbox gameplay, months ahead of its “holiday 2020” launch.

“So pumped to see our partners showing us a first look at Xbox Series X gameplay next week,” said Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg.

“Also know the Xbox Game Studios teams are hard at work on some big some plans.

“More detailed soon! #GetHyped”

This means that we’re going to see third-party game makers show off their wares.

But we won’t see Microsoft’s own in-house Xbox games until a later date.

Microsoft will need to make sure that its next console has a solid list of games for players to enjoy.

Much of the console’s success will be determined by how its game roster compares to the PlayStation 5’s line-up.

The console comes with a brand new joypad

Ubisoft has already confirmed that its new Assassin’s Creed game will debut on both the Xbox Series X and PS5.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set in Britain and Norway, taking place in a world of Viking raids.

We’re expecting the first full gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to be revealed during Inside Xbox.

Sadly, we don’t know what else will be on show.

Microsoft’s event is due to take place at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST.

In other news, a genius 3D artist has mocked up an incredible Xbox Project Oris console.

A PlayStation fan released stunning concept images of the PS5.

Gamers across the globe can now play Google Stadia for free.

And, the PS5 and Xbox Series X could cost a hefty £500 at launch.
