Xbox 20/20 event series planned
Microsoft will showcase new Xbox Series X content every month
Microsoft has announced plans to host a series of events leading up to the launch of the new Xbox Series X console, called Xbox 20/20.
The first event, starting at 8 a.m. PDT on May 7, will focus on a first look at next-gen gameplay, trailers and sneak peeks from a wide variety of publishing partners and independent developers across the globe and industry.
The publisher will be confirming games that utilize new Smart Delivery feature, which ensures that you always play the best version of the games you own for your console, across generations. And all the games you’ll see will be Xbox Series X Optimized, meaning they are built to take advantage of the 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, fast load times and much more.
Starting with the May 7 episode of Inside Xbox, the company will be showcasing new Xbox content every month, including what’s next for Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Studios, Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud. Every month will bring something different, the company says.
In July, the event will shift focus to games coming from Xbox Game Studios. For PC players, Microsoft plans to offer all their major releases at launch available with Xbox Game Pass for PC, including Halo Infinite, Wasteland 3, Minecraft Dungeons and Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The company also re-affirmed that the goal remains to launch Xbox Series X and Halo Infinite this Holiday.
