Xbox Series X Launch Trailer Features Black Panther Star Daniel Kaluuya

Microsoft releases a trippy trailer featuring Master Chief and more.


Microsoft is ushering in a new console generation in November, and to hype up the launch of the Xbox Series X/S consoles, the company has recruited Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya for the console's launch trailer.

The trippy trailer is set to the song "No Ordinary" by Labrinth, and it shows Kaluuya plugging into a new Xbox and getting transported into fantastical worlds. Master Chief makes an appearance, though it's not a proper look at Halo Infinite. The trailer ends with the tagline, "Power Your Dreams," which you should expect to see often, as Microsoft has trademarked that phrase.

This trailer premiered during Sunday Night Football this past weekend, and you can expect to see it lots more in the lead-up to the Xbox Series X/S launch in November.

The next-gen Xbox consoles arrive on November 10, priced at $500 and $300 respectively. You can expect a lot more coverage of the systems from GameSpot in the days and weeks ahead.

In our hands-on preview of the next-gen system, editor Michael Higham discussed how fast loading and Quick Resume were features that left him considerably impressed with the Xbox Series X.

"I've said this before, but I feel like next-gen console gaming will be greatly impacted by those practical improvements in the user experience more so than higher visual fidelity--and that's what I've been most impressed with in the Xbox Series X so far," Higham said.
