Microsoft has shared a list of games that will be available to play in 4K and/or HDR on Xbox One X. The list includes titles such as Assassin’s Creed Origins, Forza Motorsport 7, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Updated 7.11.2017: Xbox One X launches today so we have updated the list with 6 additional titles: Assault Android Cactus, Call of Duty: WWII, Morphite, Thumper, Transcripted, War Thunder
4K HDR games for Xbox One X
HDR or High Dynamic Range is one of the most exciting developments in the gaming space in many years. It can make games look far more realistic or intense through an expanded luminance range and a visibly larger color gamut – at least if you own a good HDR TV.
Xbox One X will support both 4K resolution and HDR when it launches in less than two weeks from now. The previous Xbox One S supported only HDR for games.
Microsoft has for some time been touting its ‘Xbox One X enhanced’ logo but this does not guarantee that the game runs in 4K resolution or HDR. To be clear, not even the 4K logo guarantees native 4K resolution as the logo also covers various means of upscaling from lower resolution.
Microsoft and developers have now confirmed 48 games that will be available in 4K, and 39 games that will be available in HDR. Some of the titles overlap as many titles are available in both 4K and HDR.
Highlights include Assassin’s Creed Origins, FIFA 18, F1 2017, Forza Motorsport 7, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Rise of the Tomb Raider. We have included a full list below.
Xbox One X launches on November 7 for $499 / £449 / €499.
Look for these logos:
A game has a 2160p frame buffer output. That includes Native 4K, Checkerboarding, and Dynamic Resolution.
The game supports HDR10 standard.
A developer has done special work to take advantage of Xbox One X’s 6 teraflops of power. Specific enhanced features will vary by game.
