Microsoft has built some great technology and software over the years. The company is famous for its operating systems as well as other products. These products include their great video game systems. Microsoft has been developing great video game consoles since 2001. The Xbox consoles developed by Microsoft are some of the best and most advanced platforms available for gaming.
The original Xbox was released in 2001 and Microsoft has released more advanced consoles since then. These include the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. The Xbox One was released in 2013 and a lot of time has passed since then.
The newest addition to the Xbox family has teased some time ago in 2019 during the E3 event. This addition was known as Project Scarlet before it was given the name of Xbox Series X.
Ever since then, fans have turned their attention towards the Xbox Series X. The system is set to be one of the most powerful gaming consoles ever created. A release date has been confirmed for the console and it’s safe to say that fans cannot wait. Here are some of the best things that you can expect from the Xbox Series X:
What To Expect From Microsoft's Upcoming Video Game Systems?
One of the best things that players can expect from the upcoming console is backward compatibility. The Xbox Series X will be capable of playing games that were originally released on the original Xbox, the Xbox 360, and the Xbox One.
To make things even better, the console will be able to play all these games with improved visuals and much higher frame rates. Older controllers from previous Xbox consoles will also be compatible with the Xbox Series X.
Players can obviously expect much better visuals on the Series X. The console will have its own version of the popular feature known as VRS (Variable Rate Shading). This feature allows the console’s GPU to visual effects on certain characters or key environmental objects in the game. As expected, the Xbox Series X will also feature ray tracing. It is one of the first video game consoles to support the feature alongside Sony’s PlayStation 5.
Speaking of games, players can expect some great launch titles on the Series X as well. Xbox isn’t exactly known for its exclusives. However, this doesn’t mean that there are no good games released on the platform.
Microsoft also teased the newest addition to the Halo franchise during the announcement for the Xbox Series X. While Halo was originally an Xbox exclusive, most of its games are now available on PC as well. The upcoming Halo Infinite is also going to be released on PC. Along with Halo, the sequel to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has also been confirmed for the upcoming console.
The release date for the console has been confirmed for Holiday 2020, which means that players can expect a release date of late November or December 2020. The price for the console hasn’t been announced yet but according to most reports, players can expect a price tag of $499-599.
Lastly, users can expect the Xbox Series X to support 8K visuals. The console will be able to support 8K at frame rates reaching as high as 120 fps. As already mentioned, the console will also support VRS and ray tracing.
This means that players will be able to enjoy one of the most immersive gaming experiences made possible by modern technology. In short, you can expect an experience like none other, as the Xbox Series X is the strongest and most advanced console that Microsoft has released so far.
