Recently, Microsoft revealed some gameplay footage from Xbox Series X games. Experiences like Bright Memory: Infinite, Dirt 5, The Medium, Scarlet Nexus, and more were announced. However, the bigger news was their respective resolutions and frame rates. You can take a look at all of the specifications below. Keep in mind, these are just the ones we've been able to confirm so far. As more information is available, this list will be updated.
Optimized for Xbox Series X means that games are put to a higher standard. Not only do they run at 60 frames per second (FPS), or beyond, but they also appear to use ray tracing and render at 4K resolution. While there will always be exceptions, this seems to be the baseline going forward, for the most part.

The table only represents confirmed information. When we know if a game supports ray-tracing for sure, we'll change the "-" to a "Yes." If it doesn't, we'll change it to a "No." According to Microsoft, titles "Optimized for Xbox Series X" are targeting 4K and 60 FPS, but we'll update the list once we receive concrete confirmation.
Which games are you more excited for? Let us know. Please keep in mind that just because a game runs at 4K on Xbox Series X or features a 120 FPS mode, doesn't mean that the PlayStation 5 will also support it. This list is only for the Xbox Series X which has a considerable power advantage over the competition.
