The Xbox One X enhanced games list currently includes a host of titles and a few picks from the Xbox 360.
The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games list includes several titles that run better on the Xbox One X, such as Fallout 3. And now Microsoft have revealed that they have more plans to bring new Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One X enhanced list.
In a short announcement posted on Twitter, Microsoft’s Albert Penello confirmed more games were in the works. “
Yes. More coming soon,” he replied to a fan query on the subject.
As you can see with the short comment, no exact information has been shared on what new games will be included.
Fans so far have 7 backwards compatible Xbox 360 games that have been enhanced on the Xbox One X, including Halo 3, Fallout 3, Assassin’s Creed, Gears of War 3, Skate 3.
It’s hard to tell what other games could be added next, what with their being a good mix of first-party and third-party titles currently included.
“When the world’s most powerful console launches on Nov. 7, you will be able to run select Xbox 360 games at higher resolution, 9X the original pixel count, and expanded color details”, Microsoft revealed last year.
“The team developed the Heutchy Method (after the engineer who created it) which leverages the power of Xbox One X to let the Xbox 360 emulator present the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets—all without touching the game code.
“The same method improves the graphics for Original Xbox games on Xbox One and Xbox One S.”
It seems likely that Microsoft are probably focusing on adding more first-party exclusives to the list, with plenty of those to focus on from the Xbox 360.
It should be noted that the tech giant don’t have a set format for when they announce new Backwards Compatible games.
This means we could see something revealed this week, or in a month’s time.
Microsoft do usually release new Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games on either Tuesdays or Thursdays, so we could technically see something announced as early as tomorrow.
