Update: Xbox’s Major Nelson now provides a constantly updating list of games that will support the superior hardware of the Xbox One X and can be found here.
So for those of you who are still waiting to hear more about the Xbox One X this appears to be a pretty good list of games that will feature native 4K via a patch once the console comes out in November. As well as 4K you should expect to see increased frame rates and faster load times as well.
Those of you who still use 1080p TVs (I did until very recently) you’ll also be looked after because the Xbox One X will come out with super sampling for a lot of the games too. Super sampling is very much like the Nvidia DSR (read more here), which greatly increases the quality of the pixel to make it look closer to 4K.
Here is a list of games so far that have been announced to support native 4K, either at launch or via a patch:
|Assassin’s Creed Origins (rumoured to be checkerboard 4k)|
|Final Fantasy XV|
|Forza Horizon 3|
|Forza Motorsport 7|
|Gears of War 4|
|Halo Wars 2|
|Madden NFL 18|
|Middle-Earth: Shadow of War|
|Ori and the Will of the Wisps|
|Resident Evil 7|
|Sea of Thieves|
|Star Wars: Battlefront II|
|State of Decay 2|
|Super Luckey’s Tale|
|The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim|
|The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt|
|Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands|
I’m sure more will be announced as we get closer to the Xbox One X launch date. It is also interesting to note that as far as I can tell here in Australia, the console isn’t availabe for pre-order yet.
