Microsoft has talked up the key game-changing features of the upcoming Xbox Series X before. But it has not demonstrated the anticipated playing experience to fans. Things are going to be different now that the company announced a series of virtual events to showcase what is coming to its next-generation console.

Microsoft to hold the first Xbox 20/20 event in May

The first Xbox 20/20 event is going down on the 7th of May this year. It is an opportunity for you to see for yourself the superiority of next-gen gameplay. Game developers will also be there to showcase what they hold in store for their fans and players.

There will be trailers and sneak previews from a host of publishers that develop games for Xbox. If you are a fan of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, for example, you have a chance to see what the game will look like on Xbox Series X.

Microsoft said it will take advantage of the virtual event this coming Thursday to showcase how cross-generation game ownership works. The company revealed the Smart Delivery feature earlier this year.

We’ll be confirming games that utilize our new Smart Delivery feature, which ensures that you always play the best version of the games you own for your console, across generations. And all the games you’ll see will be Xbox Series X Optimized.

Cross-gen game ownership allows you access to an optimized version of a game regardless of the device you are playing it on. It is a money saver since you only have to buy a game once to be able to play it on an Xbox platform of your choice.

Other Xbox Series X features

Thursday 7th is a good opportunity for Xbox Series X fans to assess if the console is as great as advertised. Ray tracing will be of significant interest because it is one of the revolutionary features that Microsoft is bringing to console gaming.

The games you will see that day will also showcase tech and qualities like 4K resolution pictures and super-fast load times.

There will be monthly updates like this from now on, Microsoft said. During a similar Xbox 20/20 event in July, Microsoft plans on highlighting upcoming Xbox Game Studios releases.

The company also confirmed that plans to launch Xbox Series X this holiday remain unchanged. The same applies to the release of the Halo Infinite game.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has not revealed what the highlights for the June Xbox 20/20 event will be.
