As you can see there are many games in the list which were expected to be improved such as many recent Microsoft-published games including Quantum Break and even Zoo Tycoon which is a good thing, Assassin’s Creed Origins and Wolfenstein II.
Plus, there are plenty of older and indie titles also in line, such as Astroneer, Firewatch, Hitman and our favourite The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The list looks impressive, but it’s also important to remember that only limited number of the games will be Xbox One X-ready when the console launches on November 7th.
Many of these titles, like Anthem, won’t ship until many months later. Microsoft also doesn’t explain just what the enhancements mean (FPS, Resolution or both).
You’ll have to dig deeper to find out whether or not a particular game runs natively in 4K or relies on upscaling such as checkerboard rendering, as well as whether or not there are any added visual effects.
However, Xbox One X has lots of power inside its body, it will definitely improve smoothness, loading times, and will provide better rendering.
