Microsoft Unveils 31 Games That Will Be Optimised Day One For The Xbox Series X/S

Gamers will be spoilt for choice come November when the Xbox Series X/S releases with Microsoft listing a mammoth launch-day lineup of 31-titles, all optimised to run on the brand new hardware. The list was shown-off in an article over on Xbox Wire (bizarrely titled “30 Games Fully Optimised on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Launch Day”), and features 20 titles that will utilise Smart Delivery, meaning they will automatically upgrade if the user already owns the Xbox One version. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also be able to take advantage of these upgrades on games like Forza Horizon 4 and the incredible Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
