Microsoft is outlining the first games to be designed today for their next-gen Xbox Series X console. All the games featured in Microsoft's Xbox 20/20 series will be wearing a new Xbox Series X Optimized badge that means a game has been modified and optimized for the new console.

Optimizations include 4 K support at up to 120fps, support for DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated ray tracing and quicker load times. Effectively, when you see the Optimized logo, you know that some work has been done by a developer to ensure that current or new games perform better on an Xbox Series X. Learn more about the Xbox Series X Optimized information.

Microsoft has announced 13 new Xbox Series X games, including Ubisoft, Deep Silver and Bloober Team ones. These 13 titles will be rocking the updated Xbox Series X Optimized badge, and we'll potentially see even more in July and in the coming months during Microsoft's Xbox Game Studios announcements. Below are the top 13 Xbox Series X games Optimized:
