Four New Xbox One Enhanced Titles Come To Backward Compatibility

by C.J. Keller


Microsoft has added four new titles from the Xbox 360 Collection of games that have been Xbox One Enhanced for Backward Compatibility.  The Witcher 2: Assassin’s of Kings, Crackdown, Fable Anniversary, and Forza Horizon have recently been added to the growing list of Xbox 360 games that feature improvements only possible on the Xbox One X.

So what can you expect from these four new games and their Xbox One X enhancements.  Xbox 360 games that have been enhanced for the Xbox One X have some distinct benefits when compared to their original releases.  They run at a higher resolution at 9x the original pixel count that the game’s launched at.

The Xbox 360 emulator combined with the power of the Xbox One X allows for the best possible version of this game, while using all of the game’s existing assets.  These four new titles bring the total number of Xbox 360 Enhanced titles for Xbox One X up to 11.

Other Xbox 360 titles that already have Xbox One X enhancements include Assassin’s Creed, Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, Halo 3, Mirror’s Edge, The Elder Scrolls Oblivion, and Skate 3.

Those who do play these backwards compatible titles on the Xbox One X have options as well.  They can play them in their original form, or with the enhanced visuals.  By default these titles will run with enhancements turned on, but you can turn off the setting by accessing the Xbox One X Settings portion of the old Xbox 360 Guide Menu.  This can be found other the Settings blade where you can choose to optimize for Graphics or Performance.
