5 Best Xbox Series X Games to Play

We have selected the most spectacular titles that reveal the true might of the Xbox One. You need to remember, though, that the size of these games will be as large as their worlds, so you won’t be able to have too many of them at once. This might be good, as you will have to play the game until you’re through, so it can be removed to free some space.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

It’s the most spectacular Assassin’s Creed game ever. The trailer set in the Viking era shows drakkars and horses, a town attacked with fire and rams, lots of smoke, incredibly realistic (as for the series) humans and birds… and even an axe time moment.

Even if you’ve been left untouched by the previous games, this one is worth your attention as an example of what Xbox Series X is capable of. It has a side effect: after such an improvement, old games may seem primitive and flat to you.

Bright Memory: Infinite

A futuristic shooter that suddenly lets you use both an automatic rifle and a sword (and your enemies are just as eclectic), with no storyline clear to those new to it. On the other hand, it looks very attractive, with shining lights, reflections in the water, and all the benefits from ray tracing. 

The current version of the game is available on Steam; if you want to see how the new hardware impacts the performance and the visuals, you better do compare. By the way, this entire game is made by one person named Zeng Xiancheng, a true one man band.

Dirt 5

If you opt for Xbox instead of you-know-what, a reason for that may be your love for racing games, particularly Forza series. The next Forza won’t be out soon, but the next Dirt game is coming. It’s even more impressive when it comes to off-road adventures. 

The gameplay shown in the trailer is expected to be as powerful as in previous installments. The cars are power demons, the race is extremely dynamic, and the windshield will get dirty in a moment. Isn’t that what you come for?

Madden NFL 21

Sporting series are known to grow better each year (though gameplay innovations may be more ambiguous). The new Madden NFL trailer shows what digital football can look like. To highlight the progress made, the trailer makers combined fragments of the first Madden football game (1988) and the one released three decades later.

There has never been such a feeling that you’re seeing some real footage rather than digital animation. And you don’t have to wait until the 9gen console arrives: you’ll get Madden NFL 21 for Xbox Series X for free if you purchase its version for Xbox One, as it supports Smart Delivery.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

The cult Japanese action-adventure series is no more exclusive to PlayStation. In 2020, two remakes of classical games – Yakuza Kiwami – are already available on PC and Xbox, and Like a Dragon is a new installment that restarts the series without the familiar protagonist Kiryu. The criminal saga will retain, though, its hard-boiled Oriental style, cynical brutality, and twisted storyline.

Impressed, Hey?

The trailers are available in [email protected], so you better watch them on the biggest screen you own to see how the games will actually look. Are you impressed? Which of these would you like to play first? Have you planned to purchase Series X? What is the best Xbox series, in your opinion? Let’s discuss in the comments.
