Xbox One X will launch with 100 enhanced games this fall

Xbox One X video game console

When Microsoft officially announced the Xbox One X at its E3 2017 keynote, many, including our own Patrick O’Rourke, were left wondering whether console’s launch library would justify the hefty cost of entry of its hardware.

At its Gamescon keynote this past weekend, Microsoft attempted to soothe those fears, announcing that 100 first- and third-party titles will take advantage of the console’s beefy hardware at launch (for the sake of comparison, Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro had a library of 45 enhanced titles at launch).

While there won’t be any titles that are exclusive to the Xbox One X, many of the games in the list of 100 Xbox One X enhanced games will support both 4K output and HDR. Some may also run at a smoother frame rate.

Depending on the game, 4K support will take the form of native, checkerboarding or dynamic scaling.

As with the Xbox One S, HDR support is limited to HDR 10. Microsoft has not said whether it plans to support Dolby Vision, the competing high dynamic range standard.

To help consumers easily identify whether a game takes advantage of Xbox One X’s hardware, a new “Xbox One X Enhanced” logo will grace the retail packaging and Xbox Store page of games that developers have optimized for Microsoft’s new hardware. Separate 4K and HDR logos will tell consumers whether the games the two new viewing formats.
