Xbox Series X First-Look Gameplay Premieres at Inside Xbox On May 7
The Xbox Series X launch is quickly approaching. To that end, the team at Microsoft is giving us a brand-new look at gameplay at Inside Xbox on May 7.
With the Xbox Series X still currently on schedule to ship in 2020, it’s finally become the time for Microsoft to start giving us a look at what games for that system will look like. In lieu of a massive E3 showing, the team is instead giving us our first great look at Series X gameplay at the next Inside Xbox event. It kicks off on May 7. We don’t know exactly which games will be there. That said, it’s hard to imagine a world where we don’t see some heavy hitters. Check out the announcement below.

Again, outside of a date and time, there isn’t a ton of new info here. However, if this thing isn’t chock full of Halo Infinite footage, I’ll eat my left shoe. In a recent interview with IGN, Phil Spencer did say that they wouldn’t hold the console launch off for any one game. That said, if there is anything they need to show, it’s Halo. That game alone will move systems, especially if it’s able to hit the console’s launch window.
Of course, the Xbox Series X event will have more than just Halo. Games like Dying Light 2, Cyberpunk 2077, or Outriders might make an appearance. With all the news coming out today about Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, it might make the most sense. But don’t rule out something like Watchdogs: Legion. And there are sure to be several games we know nothing about. Those will likely factor in as well.
Regardless of what games are shown off at this Xbox Series X event, it’s going to be great to just see some of them in action. With E3 shut down because of the coronavirus, events like these are going to be the norm this summer. Xbox seems to be making the smart move and getting out in front of the pack with this May 7 event. Be sure to stay tuned to DualShockers. We’ll have all the news out of the next Inside Xbox and everything else happening in video games.
