Xbox Series X|S Global Livestream Announcement

11

Today, Microsoft announced they will host a global livestream on November 10th to honor the launch of the new Xbox generation. We invite you, players of all identities and backgrounds, console generations and devices, skill sets and tastes, to celebrate, connect, and play together. We invite you to grab your device of choice and play alongside Team Xbox, your favorite creators, and our partners, right from your homes around the world. We invite you to take a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the next generation of games, hear the stories of people who make them, and play along with them. Tune in to our global livestream in celebration of play on November 10th at 10 PM KSA time/ 2PM ET / 11AM PT on YouTube, Twitch and Facebook Gaming.

Think of our livestream celebration as a companion to your gaming plans for the day. We’ll host “Let’s Play” segments with the creators, showcase special launch highlights from around the globe and harness the power of gaming to raise vital funds for great causes. This will be a moment of play, not press releases, as next generation consoles begin to land in the hands of players around the world. Instead of big announcements, we will mark the beginning of a new era by gaming alongside one another. We will take this moment to have some fun and look forward to having you join us. 

Microsoft to congratulate and celebrate our amazing partners at AMD on the announcement of the Radeon RX 6000 series of RDNA 2 GPUs, Microsoft detailed how our long-term relationship with AMD, beginning with Xbox 360, is at the heart of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

With the launch of Xbox Series X|S on November 10th, we are ushering in the next generation of gaming delivering a level of power, performance and compatibility never before seen in console gaming. Powered by AMD’s latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are the only next-generation consoles with full hardware support for all the RDNA 2 capabilities AMD showcased today, such as DirectX Raytracing, Mesh Shaders, Sampler Feedback and Variable Rate Shading.

Xbox Series X|S and the new Radeon RX 6000 series of GPUs enable developers to deliver transformative gaming experiences across both console and PC. We are extremely proud of the results gamers will see at launch with titles including “Gears 5,” “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla,” “Dirt 5” and many more.

We also want to let you know that Xbox debuted an end-to-end walkthrough video of the final platform experience players can expect to see when they boot up their Xbox Series X|S at launch on November 10. In the ~15-minute video available on Xbox Wire, you’ll get a closer look at how we’ve made it faster than ever to get into your games, how games on the next generation of Xbox look better and play better than ever before, and how the Xbox app keeps you connected to your console and friends, even when you’re not home. From the new dashboard experience and our new Xbox Wireless Controller to next-gen game optimizations and storage solutions, this video will give you a look at some of the great things you can expect from Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on day one.
