Today we want to look at what yet unannounced games are likely to
come to Xbox Series X, and how you should be able to play them. This is
necessary because, so far, the announcements from Microsoft and major
developers have largely focussed on the biggest releases. It's important
to note though that just as with the Xbox One, many free or cheap games
on the system are practically guaranteed.
Free to Play Games
of the biggest games in the world right now are F2P, so it makes sense
that a lot of these will eventually make the leap across generations.
Probably the biggest of these which hasn’t yet been announced is Apex
Legends, which is already extremely successful on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Apex Legends is also interesting because of how it originally launched
with little warning or fanfare
, while still going on to become a massive
hit, so it might similarly appear out of the blue on Series X.
likely to either launch on the platform or arrive shortly after is the
similarly successful Xbox One games World of Tanks, Paladins, and Path
of Exile. Series X could even go a step further, due to its better
support of a mouse and keyboard setup
If this support measures up,
it might be possible to port traditionally PC-locked F2P experiences
like DOTA 2 and LoL to Series X. While this is just speculation on our
part, it has been this one issue of control that has been the deciding
factor holding back these ports so far, so this might prove an area to
Cheap or Free Browser Gaming
exciting area to watch when it comes to cheap or free gaming comes from
better browser support. Traditionally, browser games on the internet
were relegated to Flash, a system that was not widely supported by
console browsers. In the last few years, Flash has effectively been
abandoned as it is usurped by the safer and more flexible additions to
HTML5. Developers have been exploring HTML5 as a platform for making
browser games, with games such as Doodle Jump and Bejeweled making the
Since Series X was built with proper HTML5
integration in mind, this should render an enormous range of browser
games, and their surrounding systems largely or entirely compatible. For
example, a lot of fans of online casinos have more fun when playing
their couch, and Series X could make this possible. From using the
better browser compatibility to search through different bonus offers
like free spins and deposit matches to loading and playing on the
websites themselves, new upgrades could open this world like never
Xbox Game Pass
final system worth mentioning is the already very popular Xbox Game
Pass. Essentially by paying a monthly fee, this service gives members
access to unlimited play over a hundred different games
active period. Costing only $15 a month, this system also commonly gives
players access to new releases like Gears of War 5.
other words, the Game Pass will give players an instant way to play an
enormous quantity of announced and yet unannounced games far cheaper
than with traditional purchase methods. Given that the Series X is
expected to be expensive, this could be a great investment following the
system’s launch later this year.
Whatever avenue you wish to
pursue when the Series X does eventually reach our homes, the situation
for free or low-cost gaming is better than ever before. Whether going
for F2P, browser games, or the Game Pass route, an enormous range of
great games should be accessible right from the get-go. Let’s just hope
upgradable storage is on the cheaper end.
