Today Microsoft revealed the Xbox Series X boot screen with new audio in toe. Microsoft also said that it will focus on first party games during a July event.
The new boot screen isn’t the only news Microsoft announced today. “In July, we will dedicate time to focus on the incredible games coming from Xbox Game Studios,” explains Jerret West, head of game marketing at Microsoft. A number of our studio teams are looking forward to sharing first looks at new gameplay, insights from development teams being optimized for Xbox Series X, and brand-new game announcements.”
“Check out First Look next-gen gameplay from our global developers partners within #InsideXbox on Thursday, May 7 at 8am PT.”
“Our goal remains to launch Xbox Series X and Halo Infinite this Holiday.” This Thursday Microsoft plans to highlight third-party Xbox Series X games which will included titles that take advantage of the new Smart delivery feature as well as support for 4K resolution, 120fps, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX ray tracing and faster load times.
The Smart Delivery feature allows people to buy the Xbox One version of the game now and when they buy a Xbox Series X, the games with smart delivery will automatically upgrade to Series X versions for free. For example we recently reported that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will take advantage of this feature.
