It has only been a few weeks since Microsoft announced the Xbox One X, it’s the most powerful console that the company has ever made, it’s also the most powerful console on the market right now. Customers will get true 4K gaming experience and there’s an exciting lineup of games that will take full advantage of its powers. 343 Industries has now confirmed that Halo 5 is going to receive 4K support ahead of the Xbox One X’s release later this year.
It was quite unlikely for 343 Industries to release a full new Halo title prior to the release of the Xbox One X later this year. However, the company is making sure that the Halo franchise gets a good reception on the new console as well by promising to release a game update for Halo 5 which will bring true 4K support.
343 Industries will release this update for Halo 5 later this year. It promises to share more about the 4K update when the release draws near. It hasn’t really explained how the game will hit 4K resolution but it can reasonably be assumed that it’s going to run at 60 frames-per-second.
The developer has also confirmed that several legacy Halo titles will be backward compatible for the Xbox One later this year. These include Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary. All of them will have campaign and single-player mode and even LAN play between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
