Over one hundred existing games are set for free updates adding 4K resolution, higher frame rates, HDR, and Dolby Atmos support – here are four we’re particularly looking forward to
A free patch enables 4K 30fps for campaign and horde mode, and 4K 60fps for multiplayer. It also offers a higher polygon count, fully dynamic shadows, improved reflections, and longer draw distances. Marcus Fenix’s laughter lines will look like World War II trenches. CD Projekt RED initially cited commitment to next game Cyberpunk 2077 as the reason it won’t revisit its epic fantasy for Xbox One X, but the Polish developer has since done a u-turn. That reluctance suggests the sheer amount of work it takes – but it’ll be worth it. The sun-bleached setting of Karnaca is one of the bestconceived worlds this generation, so it’ll be a joy to skulk through clockwork mansions, royal conservatories, and clifftop prisons in searing 4K. We’re not so sure we want to see the rats more clearly, mind. The Super Duper graphics pack adds realistic textures, enhanced lighting, and 4K resolution for free. Grass blobs transform into blades, water ripples, and sunrays stream through clouds. The last game you’d expect to benefit from Xbox One X actually transforms the most.
