Microsoft released an epic promotional video of the Xbox Series X and Series S: us dreamers
Microsoft has published a large - scale commercial for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S called Us Dreamers, dedicated to the upcoming launch of new consoles.
The main star of the video was actor Daniel Kaluuya, known for the films "Away" and "Black Panther". The video literally shows what it means to dive into the game with your head. First, Kaluuya gets to medieval England from assassin's Creed: Valhalla, then he finds himself in space and reincarnates as the Master chief himself, and in the end he goes on a journey through a mysterious planet. The video is accompanied by the track "No Ordinary" performed by British musician Timothy McKenzie, better known under the pseudonym Labrinth.
Despite the fact that the ad focuses a lot on Halo, the new part of the Microsoft shooter series will not be available at the launch of the Xbox Series X and S. In August, Studio 343 Industries decided to postpone Halo: Infinite for 2021 to bring it to mind after criticism of the debut gameplay.
The cost of the Xbox Series X/S at the start of sales will be 500/300$(€) in the United States and Europe. Both versions of the new Xbox Microsoft will sell at a loss — because the stated price does not reflect the cost of "hardware" and production costs. The company is going to return the lost money through a subscription "Game Pass", which for a fixed amount allows the user to access a large library of games, while constantly updating. As of September 2020, the number of subscribers to the Game Pass service exceeded 15 million people.
