The best Xbox Series X exclusive games | Digital Trends Spanish

The Xbox Series X is a tremendously powerful console, and it shows in previous generation titles that have received graphical enhancements and now look better than ever. Plus, it has an extensive library of backward compatible games that you can take advantage of. However, in terms of exclusives there are problems, since it does not yet have a large catalog. However, there are some Xbox Series X exclusive games that you can play right now, and here we present them to you.

We know that by the end of 2021 it will arrive Halo Infinite, So what Starfield Y STALKER 2 They will be released in 2022 as exclusive to the new console. So technically, the Xbox Series X doesn’t have any exclusives as of right now, and with Microsoft’s Intelligent Delivery system, neither will it for some time to come.

You will be interested in:

That is why we had to make some concessions: we defined the exclusives of Xbox series x such as games that cannot be played on the PS5. Additionally, we include Xbox One games that have been optimized for Series X and S (such as Gears 5). Finally, it is worth mentioning that in this list we ignore PC games completely. If we considered them, it would mean that Microsoft hasn’t had a console-only game in years.

Gears 5

Gears 5 is basically an Xbox Series X launch game, despite being released on Xbox One in 2019. Those who already have it can download the update for Series X for free, which improves the graphics and performance of the previous game in their state-of-the-art counterpart. The game runs basically flat at 60 frames per second during the campaign, jumping to native 4K in the resolution department during quieter scenes. When the action comes, Gears 5 you can still lower its resolution to 1080p, although these drops are not frequent, unlike the Xbox One X version.

Based on performance and resolution, the Series X and One X versions are similar, although the Series X locks at 60 frames per second, while the One X experiences frequent drops. It’s the details that make the difference, anyway. Variable speed shading, global screen space illumination, and shadow and light enhancements make the game look much better overall and, combined with the X Series’ ultra-fast SSD, it feels as a next generation experience.

About Gears 5 as a game, it’s cool. The campaign is a bit less pompous than previous titles, with frequent pauses in the action to explore and experience the story. Also, the multiplayer is better than ever. The Series X supports 120 Hz during multiplayer on Gears 5, and like the campaign, the game crashes there on Microsoft’s flagship console.

Sea of ​​Thieves

Although it was criticized during its launch for lack of content, Sea of ​​Thieves similarly, it has become one of Microsoft’s biggest exclusives and will likely remain that way for the life of Series X. Contrary to Destiny 2 and similar “as a service” games, Sea of ​​Thieves he is not concerned with guiding players down a particular path; instead, it is a seamless experience. You can go on a mission on your ship’s map to find new loot, take part in naval battles, or spend time in the ocean and land on a random island.

It is that freedom that makes Sea of ​​Thieves make it such an engaging experience, offering enough content for “game” quality, but without forcing players to play all that content. Freedom is the greatest strength of Sea of ​​Thieves, but it is also its greatest weakness. Keep in mind that playing this game with a group of friends is essential, so if you like to play solo more, you’d better pick another Series X exclusive from this list.

Tetris Effect: Connected

Even if Halo: Infinite couldn’t be ready in time for launch, the Xbox Series X got a piece of pure next-gen visual delight in the form of Tetris Effect: Connected (and a significant addition to the list of games of Game Pass). Tetris Effect originally released exclusively on PS4 in 2018, but Connected It is more than just another brand name. In addition to a cooperative multiplayer mode —that’s why the name “Connected”(Connected) – the game comes with a competitive mode that removes some particle effects and other visual features while applying stricter rules, to follow the line of the Classic Tetris World Championship.

Tetris Effect: Connected it’s more of an experience than a game, although that doesn’t sound very great. For the most part, what you play in Tetris Effect It is the same regular Tetris game. However, the experience is amplified, with various moods and locations, each with its own visual and auditory identity. When you clean the lines, they explode into particles on the screen, matching the color and theme of the mood or location you have chosen to play.

The game has just one big deviation from the standard Tetris formula, and that’s the Zone Meter. As you erase the lines, you will accumulate your zone meter, which you can activate to stop time. While paused, you can keep sliding Tremors into place, creating lines that will clear once your Zone is depleted. This allows expert players to go from clearing all four main lines and clearing up to 20 lines at once.

Bright Memory: Episode 1

Bright Memory is an ambitious game, combining elements of agile shooter games like Titanfall 2 with fighter mechanics reminiscent of Devil may cry 5. Even more impressive, Episode 1 it was developed by a single person. Despite having a short execution time and poor translation, Bright Memory it was enough to get the attention of Microsoft, which is funding a full version of the game –Bright Memory: Infinite– coming exclusively to Xbox Series X and S in 2021.

For now, we only have Bright Memory: Episode 1. The title is more of a demo than a game, in fact, players will be able to play all the content in about an hour. However, for $ 8 dollars it’s hard to complain. At least, Bright Memory It is a sample of excellent action design with great graphics.

Gears Tactics

One of the major Xbox Game Studios releases of 2020, Gears Tactics, it wasn’t actually released on an Xbox console and was reserved exclusively for PCs for the first few months of its lifespan. With the release of Xbox Series X, Gears Tactics it’s now a console game, and a very good one. How it proved XCOM 2, turn-based tactical games are possible on consoles, but Gears Tactics goes further. He keeps the tactical mechanics as a restricted movement and supervisory skill, but amplifies the action in a number of ways.

Small changes, like enemies popping up everywhere and the ability to issue commands while another unit executes a command, make for Gears Tactics a more dynamic experience than other tactical games. Outside of combat, you can spend the caches you find on the battlefield to unlock new equipment for your troops, as well as spend skill points to make them stronger.

What stands out from Gears Tactics is that the game never feels like it is trying to be something it is not. Even with camera close-ups and turn-regulated action flow, Gears Tactics feels undeniably like Gears of war. It also works perfectly on the X Series, with flawless 4K60 and excellent controller compatibility.

Forza Horizon 4

until Forza Motorsport 8 launches in Series X, racing fans will have to settle for Forza Horizon 4. Although it is not “conform”, Forza Horizon 4 it’s one of the best racing games out there, not just on Xbox. The enhanced version of Series X also performs excellently, you get a fixed 60 frames per second during events and also when driving through the open world, furthermore, the loading times are vastly improved compared to the Xbox One version.

It is not a radical change in visual fidelity like Gears 5, but Forza Horizon 4 it’s still a next-gen sample (an impressive one, considering the game is a few years old). Hopefully we’ll see a true next-gen racing game in Series X in 2021. For now, Forza Horizon 4 it’s the best that Microsoft’s console has to offer. While Xbox One gamers won’t find much improvement in Series X outside of resolution and frames per second, Forza Horizon 4 remains an essential game for those who have not yet jumped into the driver’s seat.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Even between Gears 5 Y Forza Horizon 4, Ori and the Will of the Wisps it may be the best example of the power of the Xbox Series X. On Xbox One X, this game runs at 4K60, although not without problems. Frames per second do experience drops below that console’s target, although it remained impressive in the resolution department. On the other hand, the Xbox Series X solves all those problems. 4K is still the objective resolution, albeit now at a fixed 120 frames per second. The game even includes supersampling to run at 6K and at 60 frames per second.

In a nutshell, Ori and the Will of the Wisps it’s a viewing pleasure, especially with HDR enabled. It’s also a great game on its own. Moon Studios brings in the gloomy and dreamy atmosphere of the original game, but adds more content (including boss battles). Ori and the Will of the Wisps en one of the best Metroidvania games and while it’s technically available on the Nintendo Switch, the game feels more like home in Series X.
