To me it doesn’t really look that impressive compared to current games. The only game that’s impressed me so far was that Hellblade 2 demo on the Series X at its reveal. Lots more games to come though.

It's a fair upgrade on the current gen version but agree, looking for a bit more from next gen.

Hard to judge Hellblade from a pre-rendered cut-scene, but it is the best of the very little next gen content we've seen so far. The first game was also quite pretty, although it was also really dull.

I played the original on PS4 it's ok, this is for sure a step up graphics wise with some nice raytracing effects, although for me not really worth getting again just for that.

Hellblade 2 was supposedly using game engine graphics. Besides, despite being well received by the critics I don't expect it to sell well to the xbox fan base.

Yes "in-engine" but not gameplay.


What we’re likely looking at is a trailer built with Unreal Engine 4 on a powerful PC (Xbox Series X hardware wasn’t finalized until recently, so it’s unlikely an official dev kit was used) then polished up a bit for its big debut. It should also be mentioned that trailer is only running at 3840x1608 rather than true 4K due to the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, and mastered at 24fps. So yeah, the trailer isn’t pure fantasy, but temper your expectations a bit – we’ll have to wait to see what Hellblade II looks like running on actual hardware at full resolution and 30 or 60fps.
But regardless I'm looking forward to seeing more, I would be delighted to see enough interesting games on the Series X to get one as my secondary. Totally bored with the Switch now and my son will probably take it away to Uni anyway.
