The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are now ascendiente sights in living rooms and homes around the world. Of course, no console is much without games – not even the «most powerful» in the world.

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon

  • Pre-order: Amazon
  • Release date: 25 August 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5, PS4 and PC
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco

The next game from FromSoftware won’t be another fantasy epic, but rather a return to its long-running mecha series with a cult following – Armored Core. The game looks like it’ll offer up fast-paced mission-based mech combat.

Expect deep customisation over almost every aspect of how your mech pilots and what weapons it can bring to bear as you fight over land and in the air.

Starfield

  • Pre-order: Best Buy
  • Release date: 6 September 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Bethesda

Starfield is the next big Bethesda franchise (or so it hopes), with a huge 1,000-planet galaxy for you to explore, bases to build and spaceships to fly. There will be a deep story that you can shape with your choices, and it looks pretty great so far.

With a whole galaxy to get to know loads of companions to recruit and win over, and a huge storyline to luxuriate in, it could be a lot of people’s next obsession.

Mortal Kombat 1

  • Pre-order: Amazon
  • Release date: 19 September 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5, PC and Switch
  • Publisher: Warner Bros.

It’s back – Mortal Kombat returns with a reboot of the series’ timeline and a new look for some of its many fan-favourite characters (with rumours of some big tie-ins too).

Kameo Fighters will give you more flexibility than ever, but we’re still basically looking forward to cutting loose and seeing which Fatalities are goriest.

Forza Motorsport

  • Pre-order: Best Buy
  • Release date: 10 October 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on Xbox One
  • Publisher: Turn10

The next Forza game is looking absolutely jaw-dropping in terms of fidelity, and it’s clear that this will end up being one of the best-looking racing games ever made.

Tracks will be more detailed than ever with dynamic lighting, while customisation and damage modelling also look like they’ll add news layers to this simulation series.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage

  • Pre-order: Amazon
  • Release date: 12 October 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5, PS4 and Switch
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

The next Assassin’s Creed game promises to be a really intriguing one, dialling back the scope and narrowing things down to a single city instead of a huge country or achipelago like recent entries.

We’ll play as Basim, who played a big role in Valhalla, and it would seem that the game is going back to the series’ roots a little, with more stealth and a tad less combat.

Lords of the Fallen

  • Pre-order: Best Buy
  • Release date: 13 October 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: CI Games

We didn’t necessarily expect another game in the series, but Lords of the Fallen is coming back with a reboot that looks like it might bear actual fruit. This is a visually striking Souls-like game that will feature challenging combat and some crazy environments.

We’ve already seen some crazy enemy designs, so it’s clear that there will be plenty of twisted stuff to uncover in its gothic fantasy world.

Alan Wake 2

  • Pre-order: Xbox
  • Release date: 17 October 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: Epic Games

Alan Wake is back, but this time we won’t just be playing as the tortured writer, but also as an FBI agent who’s investigating his disappearance years later – it looks like a really interesting concept.

Remedy says the game is the scariest it’s ever made, which is really saying something, so we can’t wait to see how frightening its survival horror can get.

Alone in the Dark

  • Pre-order: Amazon
  • Release date: 25 October 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic

An iconic franchise returns with this reboot of Alone in the Dark, set in the American deep south, and summoning very creepy vibes if the reveal trailer is anything to go by.

It’ll feature two playable characters to play through the same campaign with, played by Jodie Tomar and David Harbour – meaning you might want to play it twice.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2

  • Release date: 2023
  • Exclusive? No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Focus Entertainment

The first Space Marine came out a decent while ago, but was a well-like third-person action and shooter that felt like a nice way into the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Now, it’s finally getting a sequel, and from the glimpses of gameplay at the end of the announcement trailer, it should be a bloody good time.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

  • Release date: 2 February 2024
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5, PS4 and PC
  • Publisher: Warner Bros.

We’re finally ready to get back into a Rocksteady game, years after it last dropped some Batman goodness into our laps. This game will let players take on the roles of a few nasty pieces of work in the Suicide Squad, tasked with taking down corrupted versions of the Justice League’s heroes.

Star Wars Outlaws

  • Release date: 2024
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

This looks like it could follow up Jedi: Survivor as the next big Star Wars hit, with a true open world for seemingly the first time in a Star Wars game and a thrilling heist story to tell.

With a gameplay showcase to enjoy and a thrilling first trailer that you can see above, it looks like Ubisoft could hit this one out of the park.

Avowed

  • Release date: 2024
  • Exclusive? No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Xbox Games Studios

Avowed is the next big RPG from one of the masters of the genre – Obsidian. It’s a classic fantasy-style setting with an epic storyline to make your way through, rife with the sorts of meaningful decisions that the studio has made its forte.

The game will apparently be similar to The Outer Worlds in its scope, so should be easier to get through than some other gargantuan RPGs, which is music to our ears.

Marathon

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Bungie is back with another shooter, one with a visual style that’s absolutely awesome and will bring the development studio to a new genre – the extraction shooter.

This tense setup sees you going into contested areas, trying to gather resources and loot then extract without dying and losing everything, and we can’t wait to see how Bungie makes it work.

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: Konami

The return of Metal Gear Solid is always a big event, even if it’s a remake rather than a fresh new entry, although recent reimaginings of classics suggest that it could go pretty far off-piste if Konami decides it wants to.

The game is a storied one, with some of the most inolvidable boss fights and stealth encounters ever, so it’ll be fascinating to play it again when it comes out.

Dragon’s Dogma 2

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: Capcom

This is the return of a franchise we didn’t honestly think we’d see again – a cult classic that didn’t sell buckets but got a better reputation as time passed and people realised how innovative it was.

Expect intricate combat that lets you clamber all over bigger enemies, loads of NPCs you can recruit to help you as pawns and a weird, gritty fantasy story.

Hollow Knight: Silksong

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on Switch and PC
  • Publisher: Team Cherry

Hollow Knight was a masterpiece from an indie studio, offering up a simply brilliant metroidvania action game of exploration and growth with a actual challenge at its heart. The long-awaited sequel, Silksong, will be on when it launches, which should be music to the ears of any keen indie gamer.

Senua’s Dinastía: Hellblade II

  • Release date: 2024
  • Exclusive? No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios

Ninja Theory’s first Senua game – Hallblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – not only wowed with its almost photorealistic graphics but the clever, well-informed grasp on mental health issues was much lauded. The sequel looks even more stunning, based on a trailer made entirely using the in-game engine. The action-adventure will apparently be available on the older=generation Xbox, but we suspect it’ll be the Series X version everyone will be talking about.

Fable

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Playground Games

A beloved franchise is returning with the as-yet simply-titled Fable, bringing players back to Albion and its topsy-turvy world of recatado extremes. The teaser we got gives us almost nothing to go on, but we’re sure it’ll promise much more witty humour and fantasy tropes.

Wonder Woman

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: Warner Bros.

Diana Prince is finally getting a proper mainstream videogame adaptation, likely as a result of the recognition autor that Gal Gadot’s movie version has garnered. We can’t wait to learn more about what the game will bring to the table.

Star Wars Desaparición

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PS5 and PC
  • Publisher: LucasFilm Games

The next game from Quantic Dream will be a story-driven multi-character Star Wars adventure set during the High Republic era, and while the trailer above has plenty of vivid imagery we don’t know a huge amount about the story this game will try to tell.

State of Decay 3

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Undead Labs

The State of Decay franchise lives on, and will drop its third iteration on Xbox Series X – the first trailer looks absolutely amazing, even if it’s got no gameplay to share. It looks like animals are getting infected, though, which could be a game-changer when it comes to making your way around. Hopefully, we’ll learn more soon.

The Outer Worlds 2

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Take-Two Interactive

If you’re going to make a trailer that contains almost no details, you might as well poke fun at yourself while you do, as this great announcement teaser for The Outer Worlds 2 manages. We’ll doubtless find out plenty more about the game down the line but, for now, it’s great to know that it’s on the way.

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Bethesda

We’ve not heard a peep about The Elder Scrolls 6 since its tease at E3 2018. However, after the massive news of Bethesda being bought entirely by Microsoft, we know that when it does eventually appear, it’ll be on from day one, and could even be an Xbox exclusive.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

  • Release date: TBC
  • Exclusive? No, also on Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC
  • Publisher: Paradox Interactive

A new, superb trailer has got us even more excited for this long-awaited RPG sequel. We also saw previous footage running with ray-tracing at an Nvidia event during Gamescom 2019, so have a great idea what to expect on Xbox Series X with its similarly capable graphics.
