Control possibly runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X

Updated August 28, 2019: Remedy runs at 1440p on Xbox One X. The final build appears to have a lower resolution to make performance better.

A few months ago, Remedy Entertainment showed a gameplay trailer of Control at the PlayStation E3 2018 event. The game uses the same engine as Quantum Break and is coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 in a few months. 505 Games confirmed that the title will be enhanced for Xbox One X, but didn't provide any further details until now. Control is expected to launch on August 27, priced at $60.

According to an Amazon listing for Control, the game supports "4K" and "HDR" on Xbox One X. Oddly enough, the Microsoft Store just says the game is Xbox One X Enhanced, but doesn't list any other details besides that.

Control is a supernatural third-person action-adventure that takes place in a universe similar to the one in Quantum Break. After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, you become the new director struggling to regain control. Instead of taking place in a science fiction setting, Control explores mysticism in a modern light.

The game will challenge you to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts, and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world. The gameplay is similar to Quantum Break so those who played the Microsoft exclusive should feel right at home.
