XBOX SERIES X PRICE REVEALED

After forced to announce a next-gen budget edition of its Xbox Series X (officially titled Xbox Series S) because of a leak , we have been given more insight into Microsoft’s long awaited project.

The Xbox Series S is less powerful than Series X but will be able to offer next-gen features such as fast load times, high frame rates and real-time ray-tracing. It’s also smaller, just check the pic above (it’s the one to the left, duh!).

The launch date is set for November 10th and you’ll be able to pre-order it from September 22nd (just eleven days from now).

As announced (below) Xbox Series X is priced at $499 (£449) and Xbox Series S costs $299 (£249).

The next-gen consoles are just months away and gaming is about to step up to next level. Either you like racing, superheroes, horror, RPGs, shooters, here are some of the titles you should check out.

Ready? Ok, go!

‘HORIZON 2: FORBIDDEN WEST’ (PS5)

The sequel to 2017’s ‘Horizon: Zero Dawn’ (PS4), and recently ported on PC (this August). This one took my breath away at the PS5 reveal event on June 11th. If you’re planning to own a PS5 this is a must!

Release date: not announced.

‘AVOWED’ – (XBOX SERIES X)

An epic, first-person RPG set in the fantasy world of Eora. It’s being developed by Obsidian Entertainment (most known for ‘Pillars of Eternity’, ‘Fallout: New Vegas’ and ‘The Outer Worlds’ etc), owned by Microsoft since 2018.
The first person perspective made the Internet compare it with ‘SKYRIM’. I need to see more but given Obsidian’s track record, I’d say this is a must for all Xbox Series X owners.

Release date: not announced.

‘HITMAN 3’ (PS5, PS4, XBOX SERIES X, XBOX ONE & PC)

The conclusion of the “World Of Assassination” trilogy. Looks gorgeous and Dubai is a great setting. It’s not limited to Dubai but I don’t care, it should please everyone.

Release date: January 2021.

‘FABLE’ (XBOX SERIES X & PC)

Fable returns with a new beginning for the legendary franchise. Explore a land of fantastical creatures and wondrous places.
Ever since the first title on the original Xbox, I’ve had an interest for the franchise. We need to see gameplay, yes. I don’t think there’s a single Xbox- RPG/fantasy lover or fan not longing for this.

Release date: not announced yet.

‘KENA: BRIDGE OF SPIRITS’ (PS5, maybe PS4 & PC)

Its art-style sets up for an incredible atmosphere. It’s beyond charming and I’m eagerly awaiting to explore this world.
There are talks about PS4- and PC- versions aswell.

Release date: Holiday 2020

‘RESIDENT EVIL 8: VILLAGE’ (PS5, XBOX SERIES X & PC)

When I saw it at the PS5 reveal event, I remember thinking “is it… it can’t be, right?” BUT.. IT WAS! This is the next installment in the franchise and the werewolf thing is awesome!

Release date: 2021.

‘DEMON’S SOULS’ (PS5)

Entirely rebuilt from the ground up and masterfully enhanced, it’s the remake of Demon’s Souls, a PS3 title developed by From Software (the makers of the ‘Dark Souls’- series). It was being rumored and finally confirmed at the June event, to everybody’s excitement.

Release date: not announced.

‘HALO: INFINITE’ (XBOX SERIES X, XBOX ONE & PC)

Running on Xbox Series X at 60FPS and up to 4K resolution. IMO ‘Halo’ made Xbox what Xbox is today and there are probably no gamers anywhere around the globe not knowing about this series. Split-screen co-op confirmed.

Release date: planned to be released as a launch game for Xbox Series X in late 2020.

‘RATCHET AND CLANK: RIFT APART’ (PS5)

The first game in the series since the release of ‘Ratchet & Clank’ in 2016 (PS4) which was a re-imagining of the first game in the series and as well based on the movie released the same year and with the same name. A female Lombax (Ratchet’s race) was teased and confirmed to be playable in the PS5 exclusive

Release date: not announced.

‘MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES’ (PS5)

Already at PS5’s official announcement, the big leap in loading times between the new console and the PS4 was one of the main selling points and guess what! ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ was used as the example.
It will take advantage of PS5’s new features: raytracing hardware, haptic feedback, 3d spatial sound etc. A standalone and continuation of the 2018 title but smaller in scope.

Release date: 2020.

‘S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2’ (xBOX SERIES X & PC)

One of the biggest open-worlds yet with a blend of FPS, immersive sim and horror with a really thick atmosphere. Features a non-linear story where your choices will influence both short-term consequences and global outcomes.

Release date: not announced

‘WARHAMMER 40,000: DARKTIDE’ (XBOX SERIES X & PC)

A 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium where you’ll fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies.

Release‎ date: ‎planned for 2021.

‘FORZA MOTORSPORT 8’ (XBOX SERIES X)

The Forza Motorsport series speeds onto the Xbox Series X running at 4k 60. ‘Forza’ is to Xbox-consoles what ‘Gran Turismo’ is to PlayStation. Xbox Series X owners and fans of driving games SHOULD get this.

Release date: not announced.

‘GRAN TURISMO 7’ (PS5)

PSVR 2.0 support confirmed, which is nice. As with the title above, I highly recommend it if you’re a future PS5 owner and enjoy racing.

Release date: not announced.
