Xbox One X standard edition pre-orders finally went live today, and this was a good opportunity for Microsoft to also highlight the growing number of Xbox One games that will be specifically enhanced for the new console. From the 100 games announced at Gamescom last month, we’ve now reached over 130 Xbox One X Enhanced titles as of today, and this number will likely keep increasing ahead of the console launch on November 7.
“When it comes to games, we’re pleased to announce that you’ll be able to enjoy more than 130 (and counting!) new and existing games enhanced for Xbox One X to take advantage of its full power, including Far Cry 5, L.A. Noire, Greedfall and Okami HD, shared Xbox’s Major Nelson today. “We set out to make Xbox One X the best place to create and experience games, and hearing how our partners are excited and committed to Xbox One X confirms our vision.
As a reminder, “Xbox One X Enhanced” means that a game studio has done special work to leverage the 6 teraflops of power in Xbox One X to improve its game. Enhanced features will vary by game, and only a few of them will actually support true 4K Graphics, High Dynamic Range and a rock-solid 60 FPS at the same time. The Xbox One X launch title Forza Motorsport 7 will be one of the select games that reaches this holy grail, and it will undoubtedly be a great showcase title for the new console (a demo of the game is now available to download on the Xbox Store).
You can check the full list of Xbox One X Enhanced titles on the Xbox website, and the growing list already includes many AAA games such as Assassin’s Creed Origins, Fallout 4, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, Rise of the Tomb Raider and more. It’s worth noting that Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WW2 are still missing for now, and some of the titles that Major Nelson mentioned today (Far Cry 5 and L.A. Noire) have also yet to be added.Further reading: Video Games, Xbox One, Xbox One X
