Xbox One X 4K HDR Support Confirmed for Bethesda’s Evil Within 2 & Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus


Bethesda’s upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and The Evil Within 2 will support 4K Ultra HD on the Xbox One X.

Apparently, Microsoft recently updated the game pages for the upcoming titles, and both games will support HDR and 4K Ultra HD on Microsoft’s “most powerful”  console in the world.

Both titles carry the Xbox One X Enhanced logo, which means they will take advantage of the Xbox One X’s additional power. According to Microsoft, games carrying the “enhanced” logo, have received “special work” from the developer to take “advantage of Xbox One X’s 6 teraflops of power”.

At this point, it’s unsure whether Wolfenstein II and The Evil Within 2 will run in native 4K on Xbox One X since Microsoft’s description for “4K Ultra HD” implies that it can also use “checkerboarding” or “Dynamic resolution” to get to a 2160p frame buffer output.

The Evil Within 2 is slated for a release on October 13 while Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will release a few weeks later on October 27. Both titles were announced during Bethesda’s E3 conference this year.
