Users have been questioning why Microsoft has not been adding any exclusive titles to its console. And now Microsoft plans to change that a bit by introducing 4K support for Red Dead Redemption, and five other games on its console.
Microsoft has been trying to add backward compatibility to Xbox One X for games from the Xbox and Xbox 360 eras. While quite a few games were chosen for backward compatibility, it wasn’t enough to make users feel satisfied with the company’s efforts. Now the company is coming up with additional features for games that have been launched on the Xbox One and Xbox One X.
With Red Dead Redemption, the 4K update on Xbox One X will be a value addition to the whole game, because it was never released on PC. This resulted in the game not getting any enhancements that are typical for a game released on PC. Red Dead Redemption has got some improved textures and anti-aliasing changes, which breathes fresh life into the game that was launched in 2010.
Other games that will be getting 4K support include Darksiders, Gears of War 2, Portal 2, and the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. According to the Xbox blog, Microsoft will be releasing two batches of original Xbox games later this month – the first on April 17, and the second on April 26. All these original Xbox games will take advantage of the power of Xbox One with up to 4X the pixel count on Xbox One and Xbox One S, and up to 16X the pixel count on Xbox One X.
The list of the titles coming on April 17 include Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Breakdown, Conker: Live & Reloaded, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Hunter: The Reckoning, Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and SSX 3. Titles coming on April 26 include Destroy All Humans!, Full Spectrum Warrior, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, MX Unleashed, Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and Star Wars Republic Commando.
