Microsoft announces list of 22 games to be optimised for Xbox Series X

Earlier in May this year, Microsoft had revealed 13 gameplay trailers to be optimised for Xbox Series X. These games would also come with a badge that stated this and would come with certain improvements that would make them work better on the new consoles, but now we have more details.Microsoft has explained what these optimisations are and have also revealed a tentative list of 22 games that are being bumped-up for the badge. Optimised for Xbox Series X will include two types of games: native Xbox Series X games like Halo Infinite, and ‘fully rebuilt’ existing games, including Xbox One titles, like Gears 5. The idea of this label is to indicate to players which games will take advantage of the Xbox Series X hardware. How they make the most of the Xbox Series X can vary, but Microsoft did offer some examples. It can mean the almost total elimination of load times via ‘Xbox Velocity Architecture’, or better visuals, higher framerates or DirectX raytracing.
