Every Xbox One X enhanced game - 4K, HDR, frame rates and features explained [updated]

Now that the Xbox One X preparations are in full swing (if you’re super on the ball you might even have already nabbed your Xbox One X pre-order), it’s time to step back to see which games are going to benefit from the Xbox One X’s shiny new technology. And there’s a lot of them. Below is a comprehensive list of every single game that’s going to be enhanced by the Xbox One X. 4K and HDR isn’t guaranteed in every case but expect all the games below to run smoother, quicker, and generally a ton better thanks to the console’s 6 teraflops of pure processing power. 

If you're not sure on all the terms then here's a quick rundown of a few things: 

  • 4K resolution on home screens is actually 3840 X 2160 pixels. 
  • HDR means High Dynamic Range and basically improves the colour range of an image. So blacks are blacker, tones stronger and so on. 
  • FPS means frames per second. Most games hit 30 now, with 60 the current standard to aim for. It's worth noting that when frame rates are noticed and discussed it's usually because they're changing or unstable, not necessarily because they're low. 
  • Checkerboard rendering is a way of essentially splitting a screen image into a tiny grid and only rendering every other square. A filter then reconstructs the missing parts to create the target resolution, using less processing power as a result. It's practically indistinguishable to the human eye but technically not 'true' 4K.  

You can find a more in-depth explanation of what things like 4K and HDR actually mean here. But in the meantime, what are you waiting for - here's every Xbox One X enhanced game and what features it includes (where we actually know, that is).
