Out November 10, Microsoft has detailed the full launch line-up for its pair of next-gen consoles - the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Outside of the countless backwards compatible titles that will be playable on day one (and in many cases look better) this list encompasses all the 'Optimised for Xbox Series X and S' games coming.

With confirmation on what will arrive with Smart Delivery support (that is install only what's required for that particular console) and as a part of Xbox Game Pass. Which, as expected, is a lot - Game Pass be for real.
Day One Xbox Series X|S Optimised Titles
  • 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)
  • Enlisted
  • Evergate
  • The Falconeer (Smart Delivery)
  • Fortnite
  • Forza Horizon 4 (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • Gears 5 (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • Gears Tactics (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • Grounded (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • King Oddball (Smart Delivery)
  • Maneater (Smart Delivery)
  • Manifold Garden (Smart Delivery)
  • NBA 2K21
  • Observer: System Redux
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • Planet Coaster (Smart Delivery)
  • Sea of Thieves (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • Tetris Effect: Connected (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • The Touryst (Xbox Game Pass + Smart Delivery)
  • War Thunder (Smart Delivery)
  • Warhammer: Chaosbane Slayer Edition
  • Watch Dogs: Legion (Smart Delivery)
  • WRC 9 FIA World Rally Championship (Smart Delivery)
  • Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Smart Delivery)
  • Yes, Your Grace (Smart Delivery)

No doubt it will be interesting to see just how good games like Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, and Sea of Thieves look on the Series X, alongside the first-party console debut of Gears Tactics - which is a great bit of turn-based strategy. Also, Yakuza: Like a Dragon - as per our hands-on preview - could just be that sleeper hit people are looking for. A genuinely great RPG set in a vibrant modern-day Japan.

No doubt the biggest debut here though is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla - which thanks to this recent deep-dive video, and our own play-through - is shaping up to be something pretty special. And it's going to look simply stunning in 4K.
