If a couple of weeks ago Sony presented the games that will be available for launch on its new PS5, there will be the turn of Xbox soon. The company has just confirmed through its Twitter profile that on July 23 at 9:00 am Pacific Time, there will be the “Xbox Games Showcase.” This is an event in which the games that will arrive at its new console will be unveiled

Since the first generation of Xbox, they have been concise in their message and have not given the slightest clue. Still, it is expected that, at least, there will be news related to one of the star franchises of Xbox: ‘Halo’ and the newest edition, ‘ Halo Infinite. ‘

Unlike the event that occurred in May, in this presentation, there will be more emphasis on the first-party games, or the games from the company’s developer studios. Many of them will be exclusive or can also be played on PC.

In addition to these games, a greater presence of news is also expected for the Xbox Game Pass, its successful monthly subscription service.

What Can We Expect from the Newest Event?

As happened at the Sony event, most likely, Microsoft will take advantage to boast an exclusive catalog. Throughout the life cycle of the current Xbox, the company has been putting together a catalog of its own studies, and it is expected that the results will be reflected in the new generation. However, there is another important aspect to consider, and that is that the Xbox exclusives are not so much.

Why? Because if there is a service that shines in the Microsoft ecosystem, it is Game Pass. The company has put a lot of emphasis on the benefits of this system, offering launching triple-A games to its subscribers. An example of this is ‘ Gears 5 ‘, which could be downloaded on the same launch day.

Other exciting elements is the seal ” Optimized for Xbox Series X.” It tells us that the games will be played in the best way on the platform. Therefore, it is adapted to take full advantage of the console’s resources. That ultimately should lead to very low load times, up to 120 frames per second or DirectX RayTracing .

Finally, we cannot ignore backward compatibility. Although the event will focus on new titles and “world premiere,” Microsoft may take the opportunity to give more information about the option to play previous titles.

They already said that the new Xbox Series X will be compatible with “thousands of games” at launch and that it will add HDR and 120 FPS to old titles, but there may be more information about it. Be that as it may, it will be necessary to wait until July 23 to clear up doubts.

Keep in mind that this event will likely announce the presented games in Xbox Series X, not about the console. So, It is nearly impossible to see more details about the rumored console.
