Xbox One X Enhanced Games List (So Far)

Battle Royale News Xbox

We’re going to chronicle all of the titles that have been announced to be enhanced in some way to take advantage of the power and technology of the Xbox One X. This list started small but has continued to grow rapidly since E3 and we will make an effort to update it as new titles are announced.

First a primer on what the tech terms mean for gamers.

4K: The standard for 4k is 3840 X 2160 pixels or about 4x the resolution of standard HD.

Native
: Some games are able to accomplish “true 4k” with extremely detailed textures and effects being pushed to the screen. This requires a lot of horsepower and while a few games may be able to do this and reach 60fps many must find a compromise and that usually means setting the game to 30fps.

Checkerboarding
: This is a process where a game that may not have the native textures and effects for whatever reason is able to put out a 4k image through a trick of rendering only some of the data and filling in the rest. It’s almost impossible to tell in live use whether a game is using this technique to achieve 4k resolution.

HDR
: Or High Dynamic Range is a powerful color and contrast technology that provides deeper blacks and brighter whites, enhancing everything in between.

FPS
: Frames Per Second is how many times the image on screen refreshes in a second. The higher the FPS the smoother and clearer the image will appear. Most games at this point are 30fps and 60fps is the higher end of the spectrum. While 60fps is great, 30fps is not bad, unless the game is not able to maintain a framerate consistently, then it becomes jarring and can ruin a game experience.

Now there are different tags for these enhanced games with different meanings:

Xbox One X Enhanced
: This is the more vague of the terms but basically it means that in some way, big or small, the developer has decided to make changes to the game specifically to use the power of the One X. This could mean better framerates, longer draw distance, better textures, etc. Any change made to better the game falls under this one.

4k Ultra HD: This means that in some way(whether Native or Checkerboarded) the game is running at 4k resolution on the One X.

HDR: The game has been upgraded to take advantage of High Dynamic Range Technology.

The first tag and combination of either or both of the others can be found on the listed titles and helps the buyer understand what kind of experience they’ll be getting.
