Microsoft’s next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and S, are set to hit stores on November 10. Here are all the games consumers can play on their new systems on release day.

Microsoft is finally gearing up to enter its next generation with the release of the Xbox Series X on November 10 for $499. The publisher is also giving consumers a cheaper option with the S version for $299.

While the new console will be launching without any major first-party exclusives, the next-gen systems are jam-packed with titles to choose from. Here is everything you can play on day one.

Microsoft is launching two next-gen consoles this Fall.

Xbox Series X and S launch titles

Microsoft originally planned to launch the Series X & S with Halo Infinite. However, in August it was announced that the 343 developed FPS was delayed sometime into 2021.

Because of this, the consoles are making their debut without any major first-party titles. Despite this, consumers will still have a good amount of games to play on their brand-new systems.

The standout titles are from third-party studios such as Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and the wildly anticipated Yakuza: Like a Dragon. The SEGA-produced RPG is console exclusive on the Series X for four months.

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Bright Memory
  • Destiny 2: Beyond Light
  • Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
  • DiRT 5
  • Fortnite
  • Gears 5
  • Gears Tactics
  • Maneater
  • NBA2K21
  • Observer: System Redux
  • Scorn
  • The Ascent

Launch window titles

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – November 13
  • Cyberpunk 2077 – November 19
  • Immortals: Fenyx Rising – December 3
  • The Medium (Xbox exclusive)  – December 10

While the Xbox Series X isn’t launching with any first-party titles, it is the most powerful console with specs even higher than the PlayStation 5.

So the next-gen system is the perfect place to play some of the most anticipated titles coming out in 2020. Cyberpunk alone will keep players busy for months.

Amazon Prime Day is now officially over, so no more deals to be had! Check back in 2021 for another set of great offers, but for now, Black Friday is the next chance for some good deals.

During the event, Amazon slashed the prices of some the world’s most sought-after games and technology – some of which is manufactured by the website itself. The likes of Amazon Kindles were up for grabs at a fraction of the usual cost, but aside from that, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players could have also pick up some nice sale items.

The likes of The Last of Us Part 2 and Mortal Kombat 11 were available for some $20 under the usual going rate, on PS4, with Xbox One’s Madden NFL 21 and Gears 5 available for cheaper.

Unfortunately, though, Prime Day has come and gone for another year. It started up on October 13 and ended on October 14, 2020. If you missed out, maybe next time you will think twice.

Now that these deals have expired, the next opportunity for major online deals will be Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which are a little over a month away. So, if you didn’t get your hands on your favorite item here, you may have a chance to try again in just a few weeks.
