Series X at launch, where I’ll play the various Game Pass games for sure and probably DIRT 5 day one. Not sure about when I’ll fit AC: Valhalla, Watch_Dogs and Cyberpunk into the picture, especially the latter as I might just wait out the next-gen patch for that one. There’s also the new COD I am playing for sure, Serious Sam 4 is out in less than 2 weeks, and there’s A LOT of indies, from today’s Hotshot Racing onwards. It’s gonna be a great end of the year for me.
I think I’m going to beat CrossCode before November 10th, while still playing Slay The Spire, and occasional games of Splatoon 2 and Super Mega Baseball 3, and some Pokemon Sword thrown in here and there. Gonna start another run of Stardew Valley in October.
Then it’ll be a troika of Cold War, Gears Tactics, and Forza Horizon 4 on the Series S until February, at least.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (disc, campaign only)
Cyberpunk 2077 (complete edition, digital)
Gears Tactics (game pass)
Marvel’s The Avengers (disc/digital undecided)
Ori and the Will of the Wisps (game pass)
Outriders (disc/digital undecided)
Watch Dogs Legion (disc/digital undecided)
My next gen gaming schedule depends on which games I buy on disc and which games I buy digitally. Disc based games take priority over all other games because once completed, they will be traded in to get back as much money/credit as possible. Disc based games are the games that I want to play through but have zero interest in the post launch content or don’t know it yet. Digital based games are the games that im 100% all in with and will be playing through all the expansions and post launch content. For these games, no point in buying them physically on disc.
CURRENT GEN BACKLOG / XBOX SERIES X
Control (ultimate edition, disc)
Halo: Combat Evolved (game pass)
Halo 2 (game pass)
Halo 3 (game pass)
Halo 4 (game pass)
Halo 5 (game pass)
Halo Reach (game pass)
The Outer Worlds (game pass)
Wasteland 3 (game pass)
My current gen backlog are for the games that I didn’t fully complete but will wait to sometime in 2021 to catch up on them. I know Control ultimate edition releases in 2021 so that will be day one disc purchase and then traded in once I complete the base game and the expansions.
Also, im currently waiting to see other games like The Ascent and Crossfire X campaign get an official release date. I wouldn’t be surprised if they slip into early 2021.
