Formerly known as Project Scarlett, The Game Awards has brought us the world premiere trailer for the next console from Microsoft. Branded as the New Xbox Series X it changes up every preconceived notion we have of consoles. Looking more like a PC tower than anything before it, including other PC towers. Check out the trailer below.

The Series X is set to release in the Holiday season of 2020. It promises to be the most powerful console ever with four times the processing power of the Xbox One X and will be backwards compatible with three generations of Xbox consoles. The controller has more or less remained the same though Microsoft has said it is also improved. The biggest addition being the share button that allows quick and instance access to sharing photos and videos of your games on social media.

A sequel to the widely popular Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from Ninja Theory. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up and try it yet, you’ve got a great new reason and one year to do so.
