We're all eagerly anticipating this Thursday's Xbox Series X gameplay reveal event here at Pure Xbox, and Microsoft has now shared more information on what to expect from the special Inside Xbox episode. The event will be called “Xbox 20/20” and will be the first of many monthly updates.

So, what can you expect? Microsoft says the show will provide a "first look at next-gen gameplay, trailers and sneak peeks from a wide variety of partners across the globe and industry," and Ubisoft's recently announced Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be amongst them.

Additionally, it says all the games you'll see will be "Xbox Series X Optimized," which means they're built to take advantage of Xbox Series X features "that make games look and feel incredible", such as 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, super fast load times and more.

The company will also be confirming games that utilise the new Smart Delivery feature, which allows players to buy an Xbox One copy of a game and get a free update on Xbox Series X. We already know of a few of them (Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077), but we're hoping to learn of some more!

We'll be featuring the YouTube stream in a live blog this Thursday, so make sure you're here at 8am PT/ 4pm GMT / 5pm CEST on May 7 for all the exciting new info! GM of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg has confirmed that the show will last under an hour.

What are you most looking forward to seeing on Thursday? Let us know in the comments.
