Xbox One X games: All the titles enhanced for One X with HDR and 4K support

by

All the Xbox One X Enhanced games currently confirmed

Microsoft has finally lifted the lid its answer to Sony's PS4 Pro, the Xbox One X, and boy does it look awesome. Offering gaming rig-rivaling performance, despite being the smallest Xbox to date, the X is a power house console that will offer players true 4K, HDR (high dynamic range) gaming.

If you're thinking about splashing out for the Xbox One X when it arrives in November this year, these are the games that will currently take advantage of its harware and features. Look out for the 'Enhanced for One X' label on game marketing, which denotes extra graphical eyecandy.

Not all the games mentioned here are exclusive, and those that are will also be available on Xbox One and One S as well, just without the One X enhancements. Indeed, many of the games here launch before the One X, so you won't have to wait for the new console before playing them.

Middle Earth: Shadow of War

Release date: October 10

Warner Bros. blew everyone away with its debut trailer for Middle Earth: Shadow of War. Expanding upon everything that made its predecessor, Shadow of Mordor, so great and improving the Nemesis System to include full-blown wars looks incredible.  With so much going on on-screen at once, having the power of One X will hopefully help deliver not only stunning visuals but a consistent framerate, too.

Metro Exodus

With Metro Exodus, the post-nuclear wasteland will never have been prettier. Rendered in HDR and 4K during it's E3 unveiling the game looked outright amazing.

Crackdown 3

Release date: November 7

It's still worrying just how quiet Microsoft has been about Crackdown 3. Despite being in development for what seems like forever we've still seen woefully little Crackdown 3 gameplay. One thing we do know, however is that it is Xbox One X Enhanced.

The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti

Release date: Unknown

The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti is a psychedelic sideways platformer that has some pretty clear Bill and Ted influences. During the demo we saw everything epic shredding on top of a flying chariot to “musical-laser-light-battles”.
