Microsoft finally unveiled a close look at its new console, the Xbox Series X (previously referred to as Project Scarlett), at the Game Awards 2019 yesterday.

As highlighted in the world premiere trailer below, Microsoft's new console features a long rectangular design, which can be positioned horizontally or vertically. Rendered almost entirely in black, the Series X's stripped-back design incorporates a subtle silver logo at the corner, a disc slot, and an exhaust fan at the top.

According to Microsoft, the new console will be its fastest and most powerful ever. It will apparently set a new bar for performance, speed, and compatibility. Notably, its backward compatibility will allow you to play your favorite games from across all four generations.

The new console also boasts world-class 4K visuals at 60FPS, with the possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability. Together with next-generation SSD, the Series X will be visually impressive and fast too.

The console reveal was accompanied by an in-engine first-look at Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, one of the first titles available to play through the impressive new console. Watch the trailer below.
