The best Xbox Series X games to play right now

2023 is here, which means we’re on the countdown to the launch of Starfield and Redfall as probably the biggest contenders for the best Xbox Series X games for the year (confirmed so far anyway). Just the presence of those two alone will no doubt cause chaos on this list, and that’s before we even get to anything else that’s due to drop over the next 12 months. We’ve actually had a sneaky new addition to the list in the form of Hi-Fi Rush, which stealth launched in February and took us all by surprise – both by existing, and also by how seriously awesome it is.

In our pick of the best Xbox Series X games, you’ll find a range of third-party delights and Xbox exclusives, you’re sure to find something here that speaks to you. For those who have an Ultimate subscription on Xbox, it’s also worth noting that many of these gems can be found in our selection of best games on Xbox Game Pass. So, if you’re looking for something to tuck into on the latest Xbox console, read on below to discover our list of the best Xbox Series X games you can play right now.
