What you need to know
- Forza Horizon 4 will be updated to take advantage of the Xbox Series X.
- The optimized version will be available at the launch of the new console.
- Promises 4K resolution at 60 FPS, faster load times and higher visual fidelity.
Dropping just after the Xbox Games Showcase, Playground Games has confirmed that Forza Horizon 4 will be upgraded for Xbox Series X.
The current version of Forza Horizon 4 already plays at 4K and 60 FPS on the Xbox One X, but not together. The higher frame rate requires a drop to 1080p, while the higher resolution commands a 30 FPS frame rate.
Personally speaking, the quick game resume and faster load times are a much bigger deal and something I'm really looking forward to. About the only long-term criticism I have of Forza Horizon 4 is the hours lost over the past couple of years to loading screens.
And since it's hardly a bad looking game as it stands, any upgrades to visual fidelity will surely be worthy of some serious drooling. And better yet, current owners will get the upgraded version free of charge, and it'll still be available to play for all on Xbox Game Pass.
