Xbox Announces Nine More Titles To Use Smart Delivery With Series X

During today's Series X-focused Inside Xbox episode, Microsoft announced nine more titles coming that will utilize its Smart Delivery initiative. The feature, which will apply to select cross-generational games, gives players who buy those games once the best version of that game for whichever Xbox console they're using. 

We already knew that games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Xbox Game Studios titles like Halo: Infinite would take advantage of this feature when Xbox Series X launches this holiday season, but we now know nine more third-party titles that will take advantage of this.

  • The Ascent
  • Assassin's Creed Valhalla
  • Call of the Sea
  • Chorus
  • Dirt 5
  • Scarlet Nexus
  • Second Extinction
  • Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
  • Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Additionally, while it doesn't appear to technically be a part of the official Smart Delivery initiative, EA Sports also announced that if you buy the Xbox One version of Madden NFL 21, you get the Xbox Series X version for free. Xbox Series X is set to launch this holiday season.
