All Xbox One X Enhanced Games and Their Improvements

The Xbox One X launches on November 7 and is currently available for pre-order in very limited quantity.


Microsoft’s Xbox One X console officially launches on November 7, less than three days from now. With launch so near the ever-growing list of Xbox One X-enhanced games planned for release can now be considered as near to final as it will get. Microsoft’s official list of enhanced titles features over 150 games, many which will be available at launch. The majority of updates may be arriving in the months ahead, but there’s no denying the Xbox One X’s library of enhanced titles will be robust from launch onward.

While the list doesn’t provide full details regarding just how each of the games has been enhanced for the Xbox One X, it does note certain specific areas of particular interest to buyers. Namely, it lists whether a game’s Xbox One X update will deliver 4K resolution and whether it will provide support for HDR. Only around a third of games plan on producing 4K output, which may be surprising to some. But it ultimately says that most developers see the new hardware as an opportunity to improve their games in different ways than resolution.

The full list of Xbox One X enhanced titles can be found on Microsoft’s official website, so for the sake of an attempt at brevity here is just the list of titles with updates tagged as “Available Now”:

  • Ashes Cricket (4K, HDR)
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins (4K, HDR)
  • Call of Duty: WW2 (4K, HDR)
  • Crossout (4K)
  • Danger Zone (4K)
  • Dead Rising 4 (HDR)
  • Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition (4K)
  • Disneyland Adventures (4K, HDR)
  • EA Sports FIFA 18 (4K, HDR)
  • EA Sports Madden NFL 18 (4K, HDR)
  • EA Sports NBA Live 18 (4K)
  • F1 2017 (4K, HDR)
  • Fallout 3
  • Farming Simulator 17 (4K)
  • Forza Motorsport 7 (4K, HDR)
  • Gears of War 4 (4K, HDR)
  • GRIDD: Retroenhanced (4K, HDR)
  • Halo 3
  • Halo 5: Guardians (4K)
  • Halo Wars 2 (4K, HDR)
  • Killer Instinct (4K)
  • L.A. Noire (4K, HDR)
  • Mantis Burn Racing (4K, HDR)
  • Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
  • Morphite (4K)
  • Need for Speed Payback
  • Outlast 2 (4K)
  • Path of Exile (4K)
  • Portal Knights (4K)
  • Project CARS 2 (HDR)
  • Quantum Break
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (4K, HDR)
  • Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure (4K, HDR)
  • Sonic Forces
  • Super Lucky’s Tale (4K)
  • Super Night Riders (4K)
  • The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion
  • Titanfall 2
  • Transcripted
  • World of Tanks (4K, HDR)
  • Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection (4K, HDR)

Prominent recent releases that are absent from this list including Wolfenstein 2: The New ColossusThe Evil Within 2Middle-earth: Shadow of WarFinal Fantasy 15, and others are almost all listed as “Coming Soon.” Forthcoming releases, some of which Microsoft is already listing as ready, are more difficult to discern. Star Wars: Battlefront 2, for instance, is listed as “Coming Soon” as well. But does that mean an update will be ready for launch?

It’s important to note here that Microsoft’s list of Xbox One X enhanced titles is actually a very conservative collection. This is likely due to business or contractual reasons, so as not to misrepresent plans that may be delayed. Community-sourced lists are more open to taking developer promises on word alone. For example, both Wolfenstein 2 and Minecraft are commonly said to be ready for November 7th, despite Microsoft listing them as “Coming Soon.”

Community lists are also willing to provide more detail on Xbox One X enhancements, where available. Assassin’s Creed Origins, for example, will not only be adding 4K and HDR, but also Dolby Atmos functionality, increased draw distances, and faster transition loading. Gears of War 4 will offer a 1080p mode with improved textures, dynamic shadows, and fancier reflections on top of its 4K mode.

The lesson is that, while 4K and HDR are primary focuses for marketing the Xbox One X, each developer is using the console’s impressive hardware in myriad different ways. Some are just scaling up the resolution in order to get a patch out for launch day. Others are taking their time to ensure they use up every bit of the console’s extra power. 4K as a standard resolution is something even PC titles aren’t wholly used to. Expect Xbox One X enhancements to only grow more common and more impressive over time.
