Xbox One X Enhanced Games: The Full List

This is a seriously chunky list of Xbox One X enhanced games.

If you want your games to look better than you do while still playing on console, you’re at the right place with the Xbox One X. Thanks to HDR, the blacks will be blacker, the whites will be whiter and the colours will be colourer – Wait, what?

After the Xbox One S, which already had HDR and 4K support, improved on the Xbox One (which was originally a bit weaker than the PS4), the Xbox One X hit that out of the park. Not only does it have a new cooling system, but it’s also quite a bit stronger than the Xbox One S, which mainly made use of ‘checkerboarding’ anti-aliasing, while the Xbox One X can render much higher textures (while it still has to do a bit of anti-aliasing at times, it’s not much).

Not all of the Xbox One X enhanced games also support 4K and/or HDR, but for the ones that do, you’ll need to be equipped accordingly to use more than just the basic console upgrade. The good thing, however, is that even if you haven’t shelled out a ton for a high-tech TV to go with your new console, you’ll still be able to profit from the upgraded firepower. Here are the games where you can do so:

(in development means that either the game or its Xbox One X enhancement hasn’t been released yet)

The Xbox One X just released earlier this month and has already been doing pretty well sales wise. At the end of the day, $500 is still a hefty price to pay for a medium-sized upgrade, although the backwards compatibility with many Xbox 360 and some original Xbox, along with 4K and HDR support might make it the time and place to jump to the Microsoft side of the “console war”.
