Watch the first footage of Xbox Series X games in today's Inside Xbox here

Episode kicks off at 4pm BST/11am EDT, will include Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay

The industry will get its first real look into the next generation of console games tonight and you can watch along below.

As announced last week, Microsoft is posting a special episode of its Inside Xbox program that will serve as a showcase for third-party titles heading to Xbox Series X.

The emphasis on third-party partners means we're unlikely to see any Halo Infinite or other internally developed games tonight.

Xbox games marketing general manager Aaron Greenberg has already promised more information on Xbox Games Studios projects later this summer.

The only confirmed game due to appear is Ubisoft's recently announced Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Gameplay footage is the last major piece of the next-gen puzzle. Microsoft has already unveiled the design of the Xbox Series X console itself, plus its controller, and detailed the device's technical specifications.

Meanwhile, rival Sony has released PlayStation 5's tech specs and unveiled the redesigned DualSense controller, although there is no word on when we'll see the console itself or gameplay footage.

Both devices are expected to arrive this Christmas.

Inside Xbox will be shown via YouTube, Mixer and Twitch, and will be the first in monthly 'Xbox 20/20' updates on the platform holder's next-gen plans.

It starts at 4pm BST / 11am EDT / 8am PDT today, and you can watch it below:
