Microsoft's Xbox One X enhanced programme for classic Xbox 360 games recently added support for a very special last-gen release: The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. I was particularly keen to check this one out because CD Projekt Red's 360 conversion effort was absolutely outstanding and with its arrival on the X, you might describe it as one technological miracle layered on top of another. The 360 release wasn't just a port, it was a top-to-bottom revamp of a PC original specifically built for the strengths of a far more capable platform. The port had many cutbacks, of course, but in some respects, I thought it actually improved on its counterpart. So with that remarkable port now upgraded for Microsoft's latest console, how does it look running on 4K displays? And how does the PC original hold up running at an equivalent ultra HD resolution, almost seven years on from its initial release? Whether it's a driver problem, or simply the concept of running a game never designed for … [Read more...] about How does Xbox One X’s 4K-enhanced Witcher 2 compare with PC?

Fortnite has taken the world by storm since its release last year and Epic Games has consistently been great about updating the game. That holds true today as Epic Games has recently launched patch v2.5.0 for Fortnite and with it comes a vast number of changes to both Battle Royale and Save the World game modes. In addition to the usual slew of balancing and bug fixes that this patch provides, it has also added a variety of new gear related to the Lunar New Year. The most notable inclusions related to this are the additions of four new characters and a weapon set known as Dragon Weapons for Save the World, while Battle Royale has received new shrine locations that are scattered across the map. The other most notable feature would be that of the Impulse Grenade which blasts enemies back upon detonation. On a technical level, dynamic resolution and high quality temporal upsampling have been added to both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of … [Read more...] about Massive Fortnite Update Adds New Weapons, Gear, and 4K Resolution for Xbox One X

By Sherif Saed, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 12:10 GMT Forza Horizon 3 received an Xbox One X update overnight that native 4K support. This, coupled with Forza Horizon 3’s great looks and HDR support means that Xbox One X owners are in for a real treat. It also means that the Xbox One version is due for another comparison with big-boy PC graphics. The update is pretty small, at less than 700MB, in part thanks to many of the assets already being part of the game because of the PC release. According to Digital Foundry, the game does indeed run at native 4K without the use of dynamic scaling or checkerboarding. The game also retains the 4x MSAA the base version used at launch, which makes for a really sharp image when you consider the already native 4K output. Frame-rate has not changed from a locked 30fps. Elsewhere in the graphics department, the patch ups the AF to a full 16x, upgraded motion blur, increased level of detail for roads and cars. These all are comparable to … [Read more...] about Forza Horizon 3 Xbox One X graphics comparable to PC’s highest settings in almost all areas
Forza Horizon 3 gets an enhanced Xbox One X patch this week, adding a 4K presentation plus other extras to an already visually arresting title. Developer Playground Games has justifiable confidence in this update - to the point that we were invited to its Leamington Spa office for a rundown of the benefits, and handed footage ahead of time. This X patch won't satisfy those looking for a 60fps version of the game - the lock remains at 30fps - but what it does bring to the table in terms of 4K support does impress. What you get with Horizon 3 on Xbox One X is a true 3840x2160 rendition of the game with no dynamic scaling or checkerboarding in play. Fixing it to 4K is an incredible feat in itself: a quadrupling of pixels rendered compared to a base Xbox One's 1080p, in effect mirroring the efforts Turn 10 made with Forza Motorsport 7. The good news continues when it comes to how that 4K image is presented. Surprisingly, there's enough GPU overhead to retain the taxing, 4x multi-sample … [Read more...] about Forza Horizon 3’s Xbox One X update is a true showcase for console 4K
