The Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S won’t come with the Fable 4 or Halo Infinite as exclusive launch titles. The next-gen consoles, however, are said to arrive with two major third-party games.
Microsoft’s consoles, the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S, will be released in November. That date happens to be the same time as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launch event. And the Watch Dogs: Legion will come a bit early, in October. Ubisoft, the game’s developer, has touted an upgraded variant ready for the next-gen Xbox consoles when launched.
While both games will also be released on PC, PS5, and the current-generation consoles, arriving at the same time (approximately) as the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will supply the consoles with two incredible games to play on day one. Here is what you need to know.
Exclusive Games For Xbox Series X
The PS5 launch event is still a mystery. Well, we know that Sony’s next-gen console will arrive in November, but we don’t have an exact date. Having two major Ubisoft games available on the Xbox consoles when they arrive could tempt people to choose the Xbox Series X over the PS5.
The next-gen Xbox consoles will have Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion at launch. We expect both games to run a 4K resolution, up to 60FPS. The Xbox Series S, which is less powerful, will run the games at 1440p resolution at around 60fps.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is based around the Viking invasion of Britain, around 800AD. The game will see us fill the shoes of Viking raider Eivor, who can be female or male and also happens to be a fierce assassin and a warrior, aiming to settle in ancient England.
Watch Dogs: Legion
As for the Watch Dogs: Legion, the game takes place in the British nation, too, more specifically, in the city of London. Authoritarian organizations and corporations have taken over England’s capital city, and it’s up for us to choose the best and fight back against the oppression.
