Here is all of today's Xbox news for March 28th.

Warframe Coming To Series X|S Next Month


Although the game is already playable on the Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility, Warframe will be getting a Series X|S upgrade next month as part of update 30.

In a recent dev livestream, the developers announced the new upgrade saying,

"April is also our launch month for the next-generation Xbox build of Warframe that will include update 30."

Series X|S players will need to redownload the game in full when update 30 is released next month, but it will be worth it as it will improve resolution, frame rate, and loading times.

New ExoMecha Trailer

ExoMecha was revealed during an Xbox event in 2020, a brand new free-to-play competitive sci-fi shooter.

The game looks like a blend of Call of Duty, Crysis, and Halo and we are all about that.

ExoMecha will be launching in October 2021 on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

It has been revealed that the game will run at 4K/120fps on Xbox Series X, which would also indicate that the game will be playable at 4K and a high refresh rate on PC too.

The game will feature a large team-based mode, a small scale battle mode, and a Battle Royale mode, but no further details have been given at this time.

Stock Update


Both Box and EE have announced upcoming restocks of the Xbox Series X and S.

Box have decided to use a ballot service, similar to Currys, to give players an opportunity to purchase the console.

This will help give less consoles to scalpers as being quick doesn't necessarily mean you will secure one.

"All emails collected will be entered into a ballot whereby lucky entrants will receive an invitation to purchase the Xbox Series X.
Entrants to the ballot are not guaranteed the chance to purchase an Xbox Series X.
All stock available will be allocated to random entrants, upon which successful entrants will be contacted in order to make payment."

You can sign up to be added to the ballot here.
