A few days ago, Microsoft revealed Scarlet Nexus for Xbox Series X. The game appears to be running at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second (FPS), but it's unclear if it's going to feature a 120 FPS mode. Despite that, it looks like an upgraded version of Code Vein, a game with anime characters set in a bleak world. The premise is quite interesting too.

According to publisher Bandai Namco, in a far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changing the world as we know it. Just as humanity was entering this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a thirst for human brains.

Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our chance to fight the onslaught from above.

Your goal is to possibly team up with others and destroy these invaders. You'll probably unravel the mystery behind their appearance while you're at it! If you're interested in the game, you'll be happy to know that you can preorder it from Best Buy and GameStop right now. The title costs $60 at the moment and looks pretty spectacular in trailers to be honest.
