XBox Series X emulator for PC

XBox series X emulator for PC (Windows and Mac OS)


XBox Series X emulator is an experimental project compatible with PC with Windows and Mac OS. It can run most games of XBox Series X on PC devices (see also Android OS and iOS version).

Typically, the emulator updates once every two to four weeks, with Patreon supporters receiving updates a week before the public release. Though it is still under development, it is able to run certain games smoothly.

The contributors to the project have gotten the emulator to a state where it will load and run many games, at least to the level of showing menu’s and some level of gameplay.

For proper handling of the GPU’s capabilities, the emulator now requires a specific feature of Direct3D 12 called Rasterizer-Ordered Views which is limited only to newer cards. Xenia is capable of 3×3 upscaling, but such a feature is resource intensive and can only be accomplished with high-end GPUs at the moment.

This software will never be able to connect to the real Xbox Live network. A simulated Live-like network is possible, however anything that interfaces with the official Microsoft services is not only not possible, but not something the project seeks to enable.


The hardware requirements for running the emulator vary depending on your current configuration. We have listed the minimum and recommended hardware requirements below. For the best experience, users should be running within the recommended requirements. We cannot guarantee the performance of system specifications below the recommended requirements but you’re always welcome to experiment.

Minimum requirements

  • OS: Mac OS X – 10.14 or above
  • Windows <10 support is limited. Don’t expect anything to work.
  • CPU: 64-bit
  • GPU: Direct3D 12-compatible or Vulkan-compatible GPU from this list
  • Direct3D 12 will only work on Windows 10 due to D3D12on7 and vkd3d not being supported.
  • GPUs without ROV (rasterizer-ordered view) / fragment shader interlock support will perform worse and possibly have more graphical issues. Integrated GPUs will also generally provide frame rates too low for comfortable playing.
  • AMD GPUs also fall under this due to Xenia triggering driver bugs causing crashes.
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • 2017/2019 x64 Visual C++ Redistributable

Recommended requirements

  • OS: Mac OS X – 10.14 or above
  • CPU: 4th generation or later i5/i7 64-bit
  • GPU: GTX 1080 Ti or later
  • RAM: 12 GB or more
