It’s official; Microsoft has now over 200 Xbox One X Enhanced Titles available to play. This is a huge step for both their titles and third-party releases, as the console has now a variety of different ones to actually test its power. To be precise, the exact number of Xbox One X Enhanced titles is 214 at the moment, as Gametransfers pointed out. Out of those, 170 run in native 4K resolution with only 76 of them supporting HDR. Apart from those, Xbox One X Enhanced Titles get graphics enhancements, additional visual effects, noticeably higher framerate and resolution as well as audio enhancements in some cases. The source also counted the number of titles some of the most popular publishers have available on the console. Microsoft leads with 29 titles followed by Electronic Arts with 18 games and THQ Nordic with 15 titles. A bit lower down the list we find Ubisoft with 11 games. It’s important to note that Microsoft’s titles refer to both Xbox … [Read more...] about There Are Now Over 200 Xbox One X Enhanced Titles In Six Months

Microsoft has pushed out a new Xbox 360 system update. Microsoft hasn’t forgotten Xbox 360 even after it has released new and powerful consoles like Xbox One S and X. The old console got its first update in 2 years but the update brings minor bug fixes. The previous update for Xbox 360 was released on March 29, 2016, which is a month before when Microsoft announced its decision to end the production of the console. While the console lifecycle may have ended, users can still enjoy all the games even they don’t a 360 anymore. Backward compatibility is a feature which Microsoft announced at E3 2015 and since then it has become an important feature of Xbox which now has more than 500 games supported to be played on the latest Xbox One X and is updated almost weekly. This is the feature with which Xbox One takes advantage over PlayStation 4 by allowing players to play old games without the need of older console which might never come to PlayStation 4 … [Read more...] about Microsoft Releases First System Update In 2 Years for Xbox 360
With Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard want to reignite World of Warcraft’s age-old conflict between Alliance and Horde. But this emphasis on hostility between the factions risks branding a significant portion of players as belonging to the losing side. That doesn’t seem healthy. Did you know: World of Warcraft's new Island Expeditions will let you fit a raid in during lunch. Throughout Legion we saw the barriers between factions break down. The Horde/Alliance split became almost arbitrary as, instead, class identity became the focus. It even made sense towards the end of the expansion’s storyline that we would band together to defeat an evil that was bigger than both Sylvanas and Anduin. Legion was about bringing everyone together. If you weren't prolific in the PvP scene then you'd be excused for forgetting faction-specific content even existed (though I still remember getting constantly ganked on Argus by Horde...and yes, I'm still bitter). So now, understandably, … [Read more...] about What fate awaits the losing side in the Battle for Azeroth?
All good things must come to an end. Not to imply that World War 1 was good in the slightest, but the fanciful and oft-spectacular playground of historical inaccuracy that is Battlefield 1 is finally reaching the end of its extended development cycle. Battlefield 1’s final DLC pack, Apocalypse, will launch in February. Set in the closing months of WW1, it brings the usual bundle of guns, vehicles, gimmicks and new features you’d expect from a Battlefield expansion, as well as an aerial-only playmode and five maps, although that number might seem a little cheeky if put under closer scrutiny. While technically accurate, saying that Apocalypse expansion brings five maps is a little brazen. While there are three entirely new maps for most of the standard modes of play, Passchendaele, Caporetto and River Somme all set during the very darkest and bloodiest final months of the war, the final two maps – Razor’s Edge and London Calling – are reserved for the new … [Read more...] about Battlefield 1’s final DLC, Apocalypse, thunders in next month
In one month, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds - you might have heard of it - has amassed 3 million players and therefore sales on Xbox One. I can't imagine many, if any, other Xbox One games managing similar in a whole year. Microsoft announced the milestone overnight, clearly pleased with itself for bringing the gaming sensation of 2017 to Xbox One before Sony looks anywhere near doing similar for PlayStation 4. Remember, PUBG is available unfinished on Xbox One via the Xbox Game Preview programme - a kind of early access service Sony does not offer in any form on PlayStation 4. Microsoft also worked on the Xbox One conversion itself, keen to strike while the iron was hot. The plan is to have PUBG on PS4 eventually, though. As an early access game, PUBG is still finding its feet performance-wise on Xbox One - an acclimatisation Digital Foundry has been analysing each step of the way. Are we any good yet? Meanwhile, on PC, PUBG continues to go from strength to strength, passing the … [Read more...] about PUBG becomes Xbox One sensation selling 3 million copies in a month
