Xbox One X Enhanced games - Every game with 4K resolution, HDR, higher framerates, and more

Xbox One X Enhanced games

Xbox One X Enhanced games will bring out the very best in Microsoft's powerful high-end console. These games come in all shapes and sizes - exclusive or multiplatform, current or backwards compatible, available now or still to come - but no matter the circumstances, they're going to look excellent. Visual luxuries like 4K resolution and HDR lighting effects are made possible by the world-class hardware in the Xbox One X, which can boost in-game graphics to previously unseen levels only rivaled by high-end PCs. 

What Enhanced actually means can vary wildly from game to game, but usually you're looking at 4K output and/or HDR capabilities as a bare minimum. You'll often get plenty of performance bonuses to boot, including graphical upgrades like better lighting and shadows, improved textures, increased detail at distance, and more. Some games like The Witcher 3 (opens in new tab) and Monster Hunter World (opens in new tab) also give you the choice between maximum resolution or the highest, smoothest framerates (as the two modes are often a 'one or the other' deal). 

You'll be shocked to see just how many games support the power that is Xbox One X Enhanced, some of which you might be hearing about for the first time. There are well over 100 Xbox One X Enhanced titles, and the list just keeps on growing as more Xbox and Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility games are added and developers come up with new ways to harness the power of the Xbox One X via post-release patches. We've listed all of the supported games here, be they upcoming or available now. But first, if you're not sure what those technical terms like 4K and HDR actually mean, here's a quick breakdown. If you're already in the know, just scroll down to see the many Enhanced games and all the graphical improvements they have to offer.

  • 4K resolution on home screens is actually 3840 x 2160 pixels. 
  • HDR means High Dynamic Range, and basically improves the color range of an image. So blacks are blacker, tones stronger, and so on. 
  • FPS stands for 'frames per second.' Most games hit 30fps now, with 60fps being the gold standard to aim for. It's worth noting that when framerates are noticed and discussed, it's usually because they're changing or unstable, not necessarily because they're lower. 
  • 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. 
  • Dynamic scaling/resolution means that a game varies the resolution it renders at, usually depending on the processing power needed at any given moment. This doesn't always affect the output resolution, as things can be scaled up. So, roughly speaking, a '4K' game might render a 2K image when things are quiet, and upscale to 4K, but drop to a lower rendered resolution (still upscaled to 4K) when a lot is happening onscreen (explosions, loads of enemies, etc.)

You can find a more in-depth explanation of what things like 4K and HDR actually mean (opens in new tab) here. With that, here's every Xbox One X Enhanced game and what features it includes (including specifics where applicable), all ordered alphabetically.
