Xbox has revealed the day one lineup of games for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The list runs pretty long, featuring 30 games optimised for the next-gen consoles. Microsoft claims that it’s the biggest launch lineup in Xbox history - but it’s clearly missing Halo Infinite. 

Out of the 30 games both consoles are launching with, 20 of them come with Smart Delivery. That means that if you own them on the Xbox One, you’ll get the next-gen version for free on the Xbox Series X/S. Besides that, the Xbox Series X/S will also support thousands of backwards compatible games across four generations of Xbox consoles, with boosted framerates and Auto HDR. 

Here’s the full list of games you can play on Microsoft’s next-gen consoles starting on November 10:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Smart Delivery) 

  • Borderlands 3 (Smart Delivery) 

  • Bright Memory 1.0
