Microsoft has released the list of games available on November 10 that will be optimized for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. There are 31 titles, including several that offer Smart Delivery.
The thirty titles form the list of games with which Microsoft wants to kick off the sale of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. These are games with optimizations for those consoles, so that, for example, they load faster or offer higher frame rates. The list is in addition to all Xbox One titles, which will work on the new consoles anyway and then take advantage of the more powerful hardware. Games optimized for Xbox One X will also carry those improvements to the new models.
Microsoft further clarifies which games support Smart Delivery. This function recognizes which console a player has and then downloads the best possible version of a game. Anyone who moves from an Xbox One to an Xbox Series will automatically receive the next-gen version of a game, if it is available. Nine games from the list will be available through Xbox Games Pass at the launch of the Xbox Series.
Update, Monday October 19: Sea of Thieves has been added, it was not part of the list Microsoft initially sent.
