Over the last year or so all talk has been about Project Scarlett. But today, with The Game Awards wrapping up 2019, Xbox revealed the name and release window of their next all-conquering machine – Xbox Series X.
Coming in Holiday 2020, Xbox Series X promises to be the fastest, most powerful console ever, delivering four times the processing speed of Xbox One X, all while being the most quiet and efficient machine possible.
Bringing games to life in a way never sen before, Series X will run with visuals in 4K at 60FPS, with 120FPS a possibility alongside support for 8K compatibility and Variable Refresh Rates. Throw in the fact that Xbox Series X will provide Backwards Compatibility across four generations of gaming and you’ve got one hell of a machine, and one hell of an Xbox experience.
Xbox Series X will support both horizontal and vertical orientation, with gaming matters handled by the new Xbox Wireless Controller; a controller amended with an advanced d-pad, a new Share button and compatibility with Xbox One and Win 10 PCs. You’ll find one of these controllers bundled with every Xbox Series X.
In order to showcase the power and performance of Xbox Series X, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II was shown off, working as a sequel to the stunning Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. Captured in-engine and utilising the power of Series X, you can check out the trailer below.
So, Project Scarlett is dead. Long live Xbox Series X. We’ll be sure to be found continuing our Xbox journey into Holiday 2020 when the next machine launches, and then well beyond.
