Microsoft Xbox has just revealed the official look and name to Project Scarlett — Xbox Series X. Unveiled at the Game Awards and on a blog post, the new Series X takes on a more rectangular box design (can also sit horizontally) that’s similar to a micro-PC tower. Coming in a stealthy shade of black, the console is kept minimal minus the silver Xbox logo at the corner, its disc slot, and a large exhaust fan at the top.
Performance-wise, the Series X will deliver 4K visuals at 60FPS, up to 120FPS. There is also a possibility for 8K gameplay. Coupled with a next-generation SSD, the Series X promises impressive lightning-fast load times. Another bonus will be that the next-gen console will be fully backwards compatible — meaning that all four generations of games can be played using the single Series X console. Unveiled alongside the console was an in-engine look at one of the first titles launching with the Series X, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, a follow up to Ninja Theory‘s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
There’s currently no info on pricing, but we do know that the Series X will be ready by holiday 2020.
