    Yeah, Doom's been enhanced. I'm not sure of the resolution but it looks incredibly sharp. The framerate is still a locked 60fps as well.

    Tomb Raider can look astonishing in places. The first level where the mountain city first comes into view took my breath away.

    Doom has not been enhanced yet, the patch is in development:

    https://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/xbox-one/xbox-one-x-enhanced-list?xr=shellnav#tabletitle

    What you guys are seeing is the dynamic resolution going all the way up thanks to X's power. The patch will have better textures, I assume.

    My vote goes for Assassin's Creed Origins, Gears of War 4, Wolfenstein II, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy XV as the most impressive on X. I haven't tried Call of Duty or Halo 5 yet.

    @VanillaLake ah, that's interesting. It just looks great in 1080p then. Cheers for the clarification.

    Honestly, it won't really make all that much difference if you don't have a direct comparison (unless you're a super pixel-counting nerd). 4K is only a small part of the equation; HDR is more meaningful when done right, but as the console/tv is going to upscale the image regardless of what you play, unless you're replacing you current set with something the same size, the extra inches are going to be the more immediately impressive part.

    @Glunge No problem. :)
  • Deleted user 14 February 2018 16:56:42
    @Derblington very true. I'm a PC gamer first and I'm, quite frankly, stunned by HDR on the X. Origins in particular has an amazing array of colour due to the HDR implementation. Thoroughly impressive hardware with the right developer taking advantage over it.

    Skyrim doesn't benefit that much from the native 4K output because the assets just don't take advantage of the resolution boost; the textures still look pretty crap for instance. It really depends on the game.

    Skyrim is very odd , looking off in the distance and some of the dungeons can look really nice. But then you wield a weapon and your hands look like they are from the PS2 era.

    I hear Hitman is also meant to look amazing on the X. Has anyone seen this with their own eyes? I quite fancy buying it.

    Isn't there a free bit? I keep meaning to check it out.
  • Deleted user 14 February 2018 21:51:35
    I forgot about Hitman, but yeah it's beautiful in HDR and it really does benefit from being in 4K. They've added a higher shadow preset, better texture filtering, parralax occlusion mapping and all the other shiny stuff. It also helps that it's a great fun game.

    Not my picture, but Witcher 2 potentially getting One X enhancements?

    @Ror that would convince me to play again.

    It was being developed for consoles years back (Rise of the White Wolf), before TW2. It all fell apart and ended up cancelled.

    Had a quick bash on Crackdown earlier, looks nice and clean and is as fun as ever. I did find myself really wanting the dash/boost from 3 though :) I have a quick video going up if anyone wants to see it.

    Oddly, the file shows as 1920x1080 in Windows, yet it looked really clean on my TV and I had selected 'Graphics' mode in the new option menu.

    EDIT Actually, I think I may have changed the capture resolution down to 1080p at some point. I'll check and make another video later.

    Just seen some shots of Forza Horizon with the new X update. That's pretty amazing.

    Would like horizons 2 to finish of the set though, as I never finished any of them.

    @Captain_Toad Crackdown now looks amazing for 10 year old game from what I've seen.

    @Blackmarsh63 I haven't played it in a long time, since it was originally released actually so am looking forward to checking it out!

    That looks better than Agents of Mayhem. Impressive.

    Just used my remaining bonus to buy one of these to pick up tomorrow. Nice.

    If anyone has a John Lewis and Grainger Games in their near vicinity, JL will price match the current 399 price Grainger have and you'll get the 2 year warranty.

    Everything you buy in the UK should have a 2 year warranty?
