There's been a debate as to whether Microsoft or Sony will show off their next-gen gameplay first, and it looks like Microsoft will be the first one to pull the trigger. The Xbox Series X gameplay first look has been announced and it's arriving in May 2020.
A number of global developer partners will be showing off their new and upgraded games for the Xbox Series X in an upcoming episode of Inside Xbox in early May. No specific developers have stepped up to say that they'll be making an appearance — save one.
Xbox Series X gameplay presentation shows off Assassin's Creed Valhalla
The news of our first look at Xbox Series X gameplay is most welcome to console gamers and this upcoming reveal event has a special surprise: Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be making an appearance.
While today marked the reveal of the Assassin's Creed Valhalla World Premiere, all we got to see was a cinematic trailer establishing the game's Vikings setting and aesthetic. The upcoming Inside Xbox episode will be showing us something much cooler: actual gameplay.
"We will be happy to reveal our first Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay trailer during the First Look Xbox Series X Gameplay on Inside Xbox," stated a tweet from Ubisoft's Nordic countries account. "Stay tuned!"
