Updated: Dec 13, 2020



With the latest generation of consoles now for sale (notice we didn’t use the term available), Xbox Series X has some great titles coming to its platform that you should be excited about. With significantly more processing power, and developers getting their hands on this new technology, it's pretty easy to say that this generation of console will be one for the record books. Whether you’re into solo dragon slaying, or team based tea-bagging domination, here’s five titles coming to the Xbox Series X that you should be ready to buy!


THE MEDIUM



From the developers of Layers of Fear and Blair Witch, the Bloober Team are at it again with their latest horror game The Medium. Set to be published in January of 2021, the game follows a medium named Marianne who bridges the gap between the real world and the spirit one. The most exciting part? Akira Yamaoka, original composer for the Silent Hill soundtrack is developing the soundtrack for this game. Expected to be one of the first major blockbuster hits to come to the next generation, we’re excited to see the immersive experience that The Medium will offer!


HALO INFINITE



Still to be confirmed for actual release in 2021, 343 Industries and Microsoft have announced the next piece in the Halo saga, Halo Infinite. What would a new console be without Microsoft’s flagship title, even if it will be available on the entire Microsoft device family, including windows based PCs. Halo Infinite is being built on a completely new engine called Slipspace, and it looks absolutely stunning in its new world. Plus, with the journey of Master Chief returning, while also keeping past chapters in touch, this game is shaping up to be every Halo fan’s dream.

FABLE



No, this isn’t a terrible joke designed to garner views and send your heart into a flutter, just to ultimately destroy you: Fable is set for a reboot. Playground Games and Xbox Game Studios are teaming up to breathe new life into the old series, and it has the gaming world holding its collective breath. While it’s been officially announced, there still hasn’t been any more information in regards to a potential release date, and while it makes us want to cry, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer.


STATE OF DECAY 3



Undead Labs announced yet another entry into the State of Decay series with State of Decay 3. While the timeline has still yet to be confirmed, and little information known about the upcoming title, Undead Labs’ track record lets us know that we’re in for a treat. We’ll be sitting on the edge of our seats waiting as more information becomes available.


THE LORD OF THE RINGS – GOLLUM



Daedelic Entertainment has announced a potential release in 2021 for their new LOTR game, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. We’ve only received little teasers about the game thus far, but from what we know, this story-driven adventure game is set to destroy expectations of everyone from The Shire, to Mordor. Get ready to see your beloved Gollum in all his 4k, high resolution glory!
