This fall update brings an entirely new look to the console's interface, and promises a faster, streamlined social experience so you and your friends can spend less time rooting around menus, and more time racing laps, or chucking plasma grenades at each other.More importantly, the new Xbox Experience unlocks new features like the ability to play some Xbox 360 games, and promises to have a faster overall experience.And if you have an Xbox One S, you can also filter by Xbox One X Enhanced [as of an update scheduled for this fall], so you can see games that you already own today, that if you ever decide to upgrade, will be available right away." "One of the features that we have on the Xbox One X is called supersampling, and it scales down all of the 4K data and image quality to a 1080p screen.So 1080p users will still get the benefit of the advanced textures, the faster framerates, the higher quality imagery, even if they're not displaying it in native 4K.
So even if you haven't upgraded to a 4K TV, there's still a bunch of reasons to get an Xbox One X, and it's still gonna be the best place to play the best versions of the games."That's a lot of info to take in all at once.
They're going to have an enriched mode, with more advanced textures and more lush environments. If you look at Gears of War, they're going to be upgrading their game using the 4K assets from the PC and they're gonna be in native 4K.
You can look at a game like Forza 7 which is really pushing the envelope of technology with native 4K, 60 frames per second, and high-resolution textures.
Support for backwards compatibility (more on that in a bit) won't be available for about 12 hours, around noon PT or 3 p.m ET.
If you've got your console set to automatically download updates, you won't need to do anything.
