Xbox renovates the Series S console and launches the long-awaited title "Starfield"
Great news in the month of September in Xbox. Starting with the Xbox that turns and changes color, but not only: we find the release of the new Game Pass Core subscription and the launch of the most awaited game of the moment, Starfield.
Starting with the console, it changes color and is tinted black: the new Xbox S Series in Carbon Black equipped with a 1 TB SSD drive. Thanks to this custom SSD and the innovative system on chip technology (SOC), one can easily switch from one title to another and immediately resume playing from the point where the game was interrupted; important to note, however, that apart from the increase in storage capacity, there have been no significant changes to the Xbox Series S specifications.
As for the new subscription, there have been significant changes from Xbox Live Gold. With the new subscription, Xbox Game Pass Core, there remains the ability to play together with the online multiplayer mode on consoles and the subscriber offers, the discounts of up to 50% on some games and the ability to play a selection of full titles on free game days are also maintained. Instead, the game catalog changes: with the new Xbox Game Pass Core, the catalog includes more than 25 great games, including popular titles such as Forza Horizon 4, Grounded, Among Us, and more. Still at the same price of €6.99 per month as with Xbox Live Gold. Important note is that current Gold members will be automatically transferred to the new subscription.
Turning finally to the most awaited news of the moment, September 6 was the launch of the new game from Bethesda Game Studios, from the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. Starfield is the first new universe made in the past 25 years, in which the player has the ability to create the character they want and explore with unparalleled freedom, on a legendary journey to find the answer to humanity’s greatest mystery. It’s been a long time since Microsoft has had such a “viral” game in its lineup, in fact on the first day alone the game reached 270,000 concurrent active players on Steam. But that’s nothing, because in the following hours the numbers soared to more than 6 million players at launch, that is, in its first 24 hours on the market (not counting early access reserved for those who booked the most expensive editions).
Mediability, as Microsoft’s communications agency, has been at the company’s side to look after these launches through the creation of videos, banners, in-store materials and social posts created specifically to meet the demands of such important Xbox news.
