As you may recall, games with Xbox One X enhancements aren't limited to those that were originally built for the Xbox One family of consoles. Xbox 360 games that are playable through the Backward Compatibility program are eligible as well.
Today, Microsoft announced four titles that will join Assassin's Creed, Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, Halo 3, Mirror's Edge, Oblivion, and Skate 3 on the list of Xbox 360 games that are enhanced for the world's most powerful gaming console. Here are the new additions:
This is war. A war on crime.
As the best-selling RPG on the original Xbox, Fable pioneered every player’s choice having a consequence. With Fable Anniversary, a spectacular HD remaster of the original Fable, players will be reminded of why the franchise is so special and unique. All new textures and 3D models, an entirely new lighting system, a slick new interface, achievements, and all of the content from “The Lost Chapters,” make Fable Anniversary the definitive Fable experience for faithful fans and new players alike!
Where cars belong! Celebrate speed, music, and style at the Horizon Festival. From the makers of the highest-rated racing franchise of this generation, Forza Horizon combines legendary Forza authenticity with the freedom of the open road.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline that defines a new standard for realistic,non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features a complex combat system that uniquely combines deep tactical elements with dynamic action.
It's worth noting that while three of the games were already on the Backward Compatibility list, Crackdown is actually new to the list today. To be clear, the pricing above relates to buying the games outright, not the enhancements for the One X, which are free.
What's also interesting is that you can now choose how the game is played on your Xbox One X. Enhancements are turned on by default, but if you want to play the game in its original form, you can choose to do just that. Just pull up the game settings, and set it to optimize for graphics, or for performance.
