UK Launch of Xbox Series X/S Celebrated With a Spectacular Holographic Display

Xbox Series X

Today is the day – Microsoft’s most powerful console ever made, the Xbox Series X, is now available. And so is its budget-priced sibling, the Xbox Series S.

To celebrate the launch of the next-gen consoles, hosts from Xbox On presented a six-hour livestream, showcasing gameplay from titles such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion – played on Xbox Series X, of course. There were challenges, too, which viewers were invited to take part in.

The highlight of the celebration, however, was undoubtedly a holographic display set against the backdrop of St Paul’s Cathedral. This “Dreams Within” display was made possible by an installation standing 12ft high, packed with four 4K projectors. And needless to say, it was spectacular. It created the effect of a chamber, in which a dazzling light show took place while the advanced features of the Xbox Series X were showcased. And to accompany it was a dramatic soundtrack, because why not?
