New Enhanced Xbox 360 titles and features coming to Xbox One X

Posted on February 28, 2018

If like me you can’t seem to get enough of that old school gaming, then the good folk at Microsoft really do have you covered. Four new Xbox 360 titles will be enhanced for Xbox One X and they’ll be bringing with them some impressive new features as well. The titles includes The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Forza Horizon, Fable Anniversary and Crackdown. These new Enhanced Xbox 360 titles join a growing list of Backwards Compatible titles to be given the deluxe treatment and I cant wait to start getting my little gamer mits on them all over again.

Whilst small, the list of Xbox 360 titles to be enhanced for the Xbox One X is big in stature and contains the following titles:

  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Fallout 3
  • Gears of War 3
  • Halo 3
  • Mirror’s Edge
  • Oblivion
  • Skate 3
  • Witcher 2:  Assassins of Kings (new)
  • Crackdown (new)
  • Fable Anniversary (new)
  • Forza Horizon (new)

Xbox also announced that alongside the addition of these new Enhanced Xbox 360 titles they will be releasing a new graphics setting on Xbox One X to give you more control over your Backwards gaming experience. The power of Xbox One X enables the Xbox 360 emulator to showcase the very best version of the game possible all without touching the games base code. The addition of this new graphics setting means that when you play Enhanced Xbox 360 games on Xbox One X, you can now choose how to experience them, be it with enhanced graphics or in their original form. Enhanced graphics will be turned on by default, running your game with the higher resolution, however if you turn off the graphics setting, the graphics will be comparable to the experience on Xbox One or Xbox One S.

Here’s how to access these new settings. (Note, once you change the settings, you’ll need to restart your game).

  • Press “View” and “Menu” buttons on the controller to pull up the Xbox 360 guide
  • Navigate to “Settings” blade
  • Select “Xbox One X Settings”
  • Select to optimize for “Graphics” or “Performance”
 Xbox has shown no sign of stopping when it comes to supporting Backwards Compatibility and this recent update just goes to prove how dedicated they are to continuing that to the gaming world. A big part of this I feel is due to the community support, with more than over 840 million hours of Xbox 360 games played on Xbox One alone it truly shows just how important old school gaming is to not only myself but others out there in our wonderful gamerverse!
