Xbox One Now Has More Than 100 Xbox One X-Enhanced Titles

Xbox One is Microsoft's all-in-one gaming and entertainment system that puts you at the center of all your games, TV, movies, music, sports and Skype.

 Xbox One X Enhanced games are updated or built specifically to take advantage of the world’s most powerful console and its 4K UHD and HDR capabilities, and often feature improvements such as higher resolutions and steadier, smoother framerates. Developers are in full control of how they want to take advantage of the power of the Xbox One X. In celebration of the new milestone, we’re taking a look back at some of the highlights developers have shared on their games.

Assassin's Creed Origins

With “Assassin’s Creed Origins,” Ubisoft brought the world of Ancient Egypt to life and invited players to discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs and the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

“‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ is set in Ancient Egypt – a setting that was incredibly challenging and fulfilling to build and explore. In bringing the world to life, we used the power of the Xbox One X to display more of the details and textures in 4K, maintaining higher quality models at further distances so that the world and its cities, like Alexandria and Memphis, feel rich and expansive.” – Ashraf Ismail, Game Director, Ubisoft Montreal  

Forza Motorsport 7

Developer Turn 10 Studios built its reputation on making photorealistic and incredibly accurate racing simulations such as “Forza Motorsport 7,” which runs in native 4K at 60 fps and stunning HDR.

“‘Forza Motorsport 7’ was built from the ground up with Xbox One X in mind, with improved textures and lighting, and car models rendered in unprecedented detail. We wanted to capture the full motorsport experience – the sights, sounds and feel of driving over 700 amazing cars at the limit – and we hope players truly feel like they’re inside the cockpit of a real-life vehicle when they play the game on Xbox One X.” – Dan Greenawalt, Forza Racing Franchise Creative Director, Turn 10 Studios

Gears of War 4.

The “Gears of War” franchise has always been known for pushing the limits of video game technology, and The Coalition’s “Gears of War 4” proved no different.

“In ‘Gears of War 4,’ the world of Sera has never been more immersive thanks to brand new features and higher resolution textures – all possible with the additional horsepower and memory offered by the Xbox One X. With support for two rendering modes – visuals for a true 4K experience and performance for 60 fps, HDR, support for Dolby Atmos and Windows Sonic, enhanced light shafts, dynamic shadows, increased draw distances, superior reflections and enhanced character textures, we’re incredibly proud of what the team has been able to achieve on Xbox One X so far.” – Rod Fergusson, Studio Head, The Coalition

Halo 5: Guardians

“Halo 5: Guardians” received high praise for nailing a 60 fps target in a premiere AAA shooter experience, and a new level of detail was revealed thanks to its Xbox One X enhancements.

“Playing ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ in 4K shows off a ton of detail on our characters, weapons, and vehicles that was not possible to see in 1080p. From the materials and stitches on our Spartan’s gloves to operator instructions on the ARs all the little details really shine. ‘Halo 5’ in 4K is not only a visual treat, but the enhanced power of Xbox One X has the same smooth gameplay throughout campaign and multiplayer, especially in massive Warzone matches and frenetic campaign maps. The load times are also significantly faster (especially noticeable in campaign), and the in-game cutscenes look beautiful when viewing in full fidelity at 4k.” – Chris Lee, Studio Head of FPS, 343 Industries

Middle-earth: Shadow of War

In “Middle-earth: Shadow of War,” developer Monolith Productions challenges players to confront the deadliest of enemies in a monumental battle for Middle-earth.

“4K on the PC is awesome, and once you’ve been playing for a while in 4K it’s difficult to go back to something smaller (resolution). We got the same feeling of awesomeness when we finally got HDR up and running on the Xbox One X. This is the exact same level, in 4K, but 4K HDR on the Xbox One X.” – Matt Allen, Lead Software Engineer, Monolith Productions

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Since the Xbox One X was released, many fans waited in anticipation to see how CD Projekt RED would enhance “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” for Xbox One X.

“We think Xbox users who haven’t played ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ or who are looking to relive Geralt’s final adventure on the new console will be happy to see what we’ve achieved with the game’s visuals on Xbox One X. Thanks to 4K, we can show everything our artists created with more detail, while HDR support further immerses players within rich, vivid environments. And it’s not just owners of a 4K TV who will benefit from the higher resolution. Thanks to supersampling, the leap in quality will be visible even on a 1080p screen.” – Jakub Kutrzuba, Development Lead, CD Projekt RED
