Team Xbox, development partners and more will celebrate the launch of both consoles.
As teased last week on Twitter, Microsoft will host a launch event for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10th. It will be streamed live at 11 AM PT/2 PM ET on YouTube, Twitch and Facebook. The gist of the event is that Team Xbox members, “your favorite creators” and development partners will be playing titles on both consoles to celebrate their launch.
There will be special launch highlights, behind-the-scenes looks at next-gen titles and also details on their development from the studios responsible for them. The idea is to provide “a moment of play, not press releases, as next generation consoles begin to land in the hands of players around the world. Instead of big announcements, we will mark the beginning of a new era by gaming alongside one another. We will take this moment to have some fun and look forward to having you join us.”
The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S retail for $499 and $299. The full list of launch titles can be seen here. Microsoft has already revealed enhancements for current-gen games like Gears 5, which will also receive a new update that adds New Game Plus and Ironman Mode, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will support 4K and 120 FPS. Titles like Gears Tactics will also debut on consoles for the first time alongside next-gen versions of third-party games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, DiRT 5, Watch Dogs: Legion and much more. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
