New Details About the Xbox One X Have Been Announced
As you might expect, Microsoft has been releasing more details about the Xbox One X as we get closer to the release date, and today is no different. In addition to outlining when launch events will be taking place, Microsoft has announced that the list of enhanced titles for the Xbox One X has now past 150!
Microsoft will be celebrating the launch of their newest console for North Americans in New York, hosting it on Mixer, Twitch, Facebook, and Youtube Live on November 6th at 8 PM PST/ 11 PM EST. Considering pre-orders will be available for pick up one hour later, this is how long the event will last. According to Microsoft, giveaways and gameplay demos will also be hosted at their official stores across North America, where you will be able to pick up the pre-orders at 9 PM PST/ Midnight EST. As with previous console launches, GameStop and Best Buy locations will also do the same.
Now, North Americans won’t be the only ones celebrating midnight launches, as these will take place in Australia and New Zealand as well. With that said, there are more launch events that will be hosted in Europe and the UK too. You can check out a few of the examples of what you can expect below:
- Germany: On November 6, fans in Germany will be able to attend a gaming event hosted by PietSmiet, LefLoid, Gronkh and Ninotaku on Berlin’s largest 4K theater screen for 700 fans. The event will be also streamed on Mixer.
- France: On November 6, fans are invited to tune into a seven-hour non-stop livestream on mixer.com/xbox hosted by one of France’s top YouTubers in central Paris. More than 200 French fans and celebrities will gather to play new titles and celebrate the launch of Xbox One X, culminating in a midnight launch event at France’s flagship store at the Champs Elysees.
- United Kingdom: Broadcasting live from the Xbox One X Loft in London on November 6, join us for the “Countdown to Xbox One X” on Mixer and all Xbox UK channels for our extended livestream as we count down to launch with some of our favorite games.
In addition to all of these exciting events, Xbox has officially updated their list of enhanced Xbox One X titles to more than 150 games! And what’s even better is that Aaron Greenberg mentioned that this list will be updated regularly as publishers commit to the enhancements in the future. You can check out the full list here.
