Halo 5 Getting 4K Support On Xbox One X

Halo 5: Guardians players may have been disappointed when Microsoft revealed the list of games getting 4K support on Xbox One X at E3 2017. Halo 5 was left off the list, but developer 343 Industries says the game will be playable in 4K resolution after all.

“We weren’t quite ready to make the announcement during the E3 time frame,” said a post on Halo 5’s website. “Today we are excited to officially confirm that Halo 5 will receive a game update to support true 4K with the release of Xbox One X later this year.”

That means the latest Halo title will join a host of other games that are part of the Xbox One X Enhanced Program, which sees existing titles upgraded to take advantage of the new system’s 4K capabilities. Xbox One X launches November 7 and will cost US $500 / £450/ AU $650.

343 Industries also announced four Halo titles were being added to Xbox One’s quickly expanding backwards compatibility program: Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary will all be available on Xbox One later this year.

Speaking of Halo 3, this year marks the game’s 10th anniversary, and the developer is celebrating (but definitely not by making a remastered Halo 3 Anniversary Edition). Along with the back-compat releases, a Halo 3 Anniversary Throwback playlist is coming for Halo 5. It’s a new matchmaking offering of community-made Halo 3 maps featuring classic gameplay settings. There’s no word on release dates yet.

Meanwhile, Halo 5 is getting some featured playlist updates this summer, including Multi-Team, Warzone Turbo, Double XP, and returning favorites like Ranked Snipers, Extermination, and Mythic Shotty Snipers.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
