We now have a list of games that will be getting updates for the new console as well as ones that will be optimized for the console.

But what does that actually mean?

Microsoft says that a new badge will be added to existing and next generation games that are optimized for Xbox One Series X. Those games will have 4K support at up to 120fps, with ray tracing and super-fast load times also included.

Speaking of optimized games, we already have a list of the first 13 games that will get the new match.

And there are some big names to look forward to here.
