Xbox Series X: Best Games To Play On Launch Day - Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion and More

Microsoft's new console is built around backwards compatibility and Game Pass.

The powerful console is among the smaller of the two and will be hitting your doorstep tomorrow! 

If you are looking for a full review of the console you can check out our comprehensive review here. 

Although the console is powerful, there is a serious lack in terms of games for the Series X.

This is also due to the fact that Halo Infinite was delayed until 2021, so now the console has no shining stars.

Thankfully, there are always some titles you can check out regardless if they are exclusives or not. 

Here are the best ones! 

 

Assassin's Creed Valhalla 

In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you are Eivor, a fierce Viking warrior raised on tales of battle and glory. Explore a dynamic and beautiful open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages.

Raid your enemies, grow your settlement, and build your political power in your quest to earn your place among the gods in Valhalla.

The protagonist can be either a male or female - both are considered "canon", and players can switch between them at different points in the story.

 

Watch Dogs Legion 

The now released action-adventure game is developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft.

The story puts you in the London branch of the DedSec hacker group, who are battling a regime that has taken control of the United Kingdom, via a state-of-the-art surveillance system called ctOS.

Albion is a company hellbent on making London safe and keeping under control and it's up to you and your recruits to battle against them.

The big selling point to Legion is that every character you meet can be recruited and controlled, as you build up your very own resistance movement.

Each character has their own background and skillset – as well as providing a dynamic influence on the story.

Forza Horizon 4

If you are in the mood to try your hand behind the wheel of a race car, then we recommend checking out Forza Horizon 4.

This is one of the more graphically demanding games on the Series X, so it will look stunning on the new console.
