Microsoft's upcoming console, the Xbox One X, isn't far away now – promising to deliver improved resolutions up to 4K and improved frame rates across titles. While the console is compatible with all existing Xbox One games, certain titles are being updated with various enhancements to take advantage of the console's additional resources. Marketed under the term "Xbox One X Enhanced," a growing list of developers have announced plans to support the device across their titles.
Among the titles announced so far, one of the notable absences from the official list has been Battlefield 1 – Electronic Arts' latest entry to the Battlefield series, offering brutal wide-scale combat in a First World War setting. While the publisher has been keen to support the Xbox One X with titles such as Anthem, Star Wars Battlefront II and Need for Speed: Payback, Battlefield 1 has remained missing from the list.
Responding to Tweet on the official Battlefield Twitter account for Germany, a representative has stated that at least for now, Battlefield 1 won't be seeing specific enhancements to take advantage of the additional resources offered by the Xbox One X. Nevertheless, like other Xbox One games, the title will still be playable on the console.https://twitter.com/BattlefieldEADE/status/923105527751757824
Battlefield 1 on Xbox One currently sports a dynamically scaling resolution, meaning that the game should more consistently hit its target resolution when played on the console. However, in contrast to the PlayStation 4 Pro version which saw specific upgrades for the hardware, it'd be surprising to see an Xbox One X version skipped over entirely.
Since the Xbox One X unveiling, Electronic Arts has been hesitant to confirm any form of visual upgrades specifically implemented with the console in mind. Now, based on our first statement from an official source, it's looking increasingly unlikely that Battlefield 1 will be revisited for the console.
