Here’s Major Nelson’s list of Xbox One X Enhanced game titles, with more to come

Yesterday, Microsoft announced at Gamescom that over 100 Xbox One games will be enhanced for the Xbox One X when the new console launches in November. Many upcoming games such as Forza Motorsports 7, Assassin’s Creed Origins and PlayerUnknown’s Battleground will be ready for the new console at launch, but many developers will also release free updates for existing titles such as Quantum Break, Dishonored 2, Halo 5: Guardians and more.

As a reminder, “Xbox One X Enhanced” doesn’t mean that a game will run in native 4K and support HDR: Microsoft has created two other logos for these specifications, which will be visible on both retail Xbox games and in the Xbox Store.

According to Microsoft, the “Xbox One X enhanced” label means that “a developer had done special work to take advantage of 6 teraflops of power in Xbox One X. Enhanced features will vary by game.” In other words, this means better graphics and performance, though please note that it doesn’t mean that a game that used to run at 30FPS will now run at 60FPS. Actually, we wish Microsoft and developers were more transparent about which games run at 60FPS, as this is probably much more important than 4K graphics for many gamers.

Anyway, here is the full list of games that will be enhanced for the Xbox One X at launch:
