Microsoft announced it will slightly open the curtains of the Xbox Series X’s gameplay backstage on May 7 during its live stream. We have already seen Microsoft Series X tech specs and futuristic “fridge” design (Microsoft, I like it very much indeed) but we have not got even close ideas on how all gears should work in a team and how they will influence on the game immersion and performance. 

In addition, according to TechRadar on Microsoft’s live stream, we are going to find out what new feature Smart Delivery is. Shortly about Smart Delivery — it is connected with games and the generation of the console you own at the moment. When you are buying a random game on Xbox that supports the new Smart Delivery feature, you are simultaneously opening the access to the best version of the game.

Microsoft claims this show is going to gain a monthly habit so that we could together with developers be engaged in the further development “in store for the next generation of gaming, including what’s next for Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Studios, Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud”.

Predictions and Dreams (What we should expect)

Besides the new Smart Delivery feature, Microsoft points out that all the games we are going to see will be fully optimized and adapted to Xbox Series X peculiarities, that means they are built in the way to completely drain all powers out of the new console, to show the real power of next-generation notion. Live performance thus should demonstrate to us: 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, super-fast load times, and much more.

  • Battlefield 6
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Gods and Monsters

Big thick plus is the first Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay trailer should be unveiled conforming to a Ubisoft Nordic tweet.
