Xbox Series X Gameplay Reveal Set For May 7

By Ethan Gach on at

Microsoft will finally show gameplay from Xbox Series X games, including our first look at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in action, on a new episode of Inside Xbox airing May 7.

While Microsoft has already shown the console itself, as well as shared deep dives into its specs, this will be the first opportunity to see how next-gen games actually run on it. The company says the gameplay reveals will be from its “global developers partners.” Based on a tweet by Ubisoft Nordic, that will include the first gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It’s not clear yet which other studios’ games will make an appearance.

“So pumped to see our partners showing us a first look at Xbox Series X gameplay next week!” Xbox marketing general manager, Aaron Greenberg, wrote on Twitter. “Also know the Xbox Game Studios teams are hard at work on some big summer plans.” Based on his remarks, it seems like the event will focus on third-party games rather than in-house ones like Halo: Infinite.

Meanwhile, Sony still hasn’t even revealed what the PS5 will look like. The Xbox Series X event will begin streaming at 4pm BST next Thursday.
