80 Games Have Already Been Enhanced for the Xbox One X

Since the unveiling of the Xbox One X at E3 this year, many developers have come on board, optimizing their games to take advantage of the impressive specs offered from the upcoming hardware. Earlier this month it was confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront II would be an enhanced Xbox One X title, and that was just the beginning. Now, Microsoft has 80 confirmed enhanced games for the Xbox One X, with more to come!

The Xbox One X drops on November 7th and will be available for $499 USD. Will you be picking it up or are you waiting for more titles to be announced? Let us know in the comments below and keep it locked for updates!

    Looking forward to the X. Will definitely be picking it up as early as possible. Although not a huge leap in technology any decrease in load times and better graphics is fine. Hopefully the dashboard shows a massive improvement. Will also be interested to see the improvement in backward compatibility performance. Bring on 7th of November. 👍

      Yes if you are going to buy an XB1X, buy it as early as you can because it’s life span will be very short. In 2 years time, late 2019, the PS5 will arrive using AMD’s latest chips to do HDR 4K 60fps properly on all games, even complex open worlds. When that happens, MS will be under pressure to release the XB2 with the new AMD chips.

      That’s a problem for MS because in 2-3 years time 4K TV will gain mass adoption and gamers will be hungry for content. The PS5 will supply that 4K requirement, the same as the PS4 did with the 1080p TV gen.

      But MS cannot bring out the XB2 too early or gamers like you will be bummed out having bought the expensive XB1X with only a 2 year lifespan when the XB2 arrives. It’s a problem. If MS delay, the XB1X will fall behind while PS5 is offering the real deal. You will have a PS4 vs XB1 situation like we saw with 1080p vs 900p, in a 1080p TV gen. But this time it will be XB1X doing checkerboard rendered 1800p vs PS5 native 4K, in a 4K TV gen.

      Although the PS4 Pro and XB1X can produce 4K 60fps on simple games like tunnel racers and indy titles, the lame Jaguar CPU means that complex open world games like AC Origins are rendered 1800p checkerboard at 30fps on both consoles. The PS5 will be using the AMD Ryzen CPU once AMD get production working at a console price point and will be rendering complex open worlds at native 4K HDR 60 fps.

    I cant wait. Most people dont know that the overwhelming majority of the gaming videos on youtube claiming to be 4K HDR arent HDR rendered at all. They are a simple 4K render of a game being played in 4K HDR. You might be thinking “whats the difference?” The difference is immediately noticeable if you are on a 4K HDR tv. I could only find 2 gaming videos rendered in 4K HDR, and the game looked absolutely incredible. The channel Gamersyde(I think) had the two videos, they were of Forza 7. The people claiming 4K isnt a game changer wont know what they are missing until they see it for themselves. You dont need Digital Foundry to count pixels and tell you if there is a difference, its immediately noticeable with the naked eye.

      It is not 4K that is the game changer. It’s HDR. 4K detail is not visible if you sit too for away from the screen. If the pixels are too small you just see the same as a 1080p screen. With 4K you have to get a bigger screen to make the pixels bigger or sit closer to the TV to see the extra detail.

      HDR on the other hand is not reliant on pixel size. The resolution boost is in the amount of colour gradations between much wider light and shadow thresholds. The extended dynamic range is visible from any distance on only size screen. The screen is like looking out of a window due to the light range being similar to the real world. You see the benefit under all circumstances, no matter how far you sit from the screen, no matter how big your TV screen, no matter how good your eyesight.

      The only problem is that in order to get HDR you have to buy a 4K TV, because due to it being new tech, they don’t have it on 1080p TV’s.

      So the game changer are not pixel resolution because we already hit that target with 1080p. If you sit at the proper distance from a 1080p TV, the pixels are too small for your eye to see so increasing the number of pixels has no effect because you can only see the 1080p clarity. To see the extra pixels you have to sit closer to the TV.

      The game changers are the things you can see from any distance such HDR and sub pixel flicker due to bad anti aliasing. Although you cannot see the individual pixels or jaggies, you see the flicker from all distances, because the problem makes multiple pixels to flicker, amplifying the issue as a visual artifact. Rendering the game at 1440p or higher, then downsampling to 1080p smooths out the sub pixel detail removing the flicker.

      So a 1080p screen viewed at the correct distance with downsampling does not flicker, because the process acts like a high quality anti aliasing solution, and you cannot see the individual pixels so no jaggies.

      4K is overrated. It requires you to get a bigger TV which is too big for your viewing area. But at least it 4K sells TV’s for Sony.

      Just like the everlasting lightbulb, once everyone has one you cannot sell any more, so you have to build in redundancy. 4K is designed to make your 1080p TV redundant so you have to buy another expensive TV.

        Ive got a 55″ 4K HDR/Dolby Vision tv, and you can absolutely tell the difference between 4K and 1080p.

    damn, some of the games on this list, I already own on PS4 Pro or planning to purchase sequels on PS4 Pro (you know cause I’m not about to split families up) Guess that only leaves Halo 5, GOW 4, and the Forza’s to be excited over…Hold on PUBG! Sold!

    • mwalker

      I also have a Pro. From November 7th on, I’m just going to use it for exclusives. I’ll buy cross platform games on Xbox X.

  • Rafoca

    Which ones at X launch?
