Microsoft reveals the first Xbox Series X|S Optimized games

When Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles launch on November 10, they'll have the largest library of games that any console has ever had at launch. The reason for that is pretty simple. The new consoles can play every game that you could play on the Xbox One family, including games playable via the Backward Compatibility program, which were originally made for the Xbox 360 and even the original Xbox.

These games are going to get improvements just by running on the new consoles, but of course, there are games that are getting enhancements for the new generation. Today, Microsoft revealed the list of games that are set to be optimized for the Xbox Series X|S on day one. Here's the list:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Smart Delivery)
  • Borderlands 3 (Smart Delivery)
  • Bright Memory 1.0
  • Cuisine Royale (Smart Delivery)
  • Dead by Daylight (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
  • DIRT 5 (Smart Delivery)

If you've got Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you already have access to these games. And for many of them, the update is free if you own it. Microsoft also noted that there are other games coming soon like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, The Medium, and Cyberpunk 2077.

Microsoft's two new consoles are set to arrive on November 10, and if you haven't pre-ordered yet, good luck finding one. You might have better luck in stores on launch day.
