Microsoft recently upgraded the original Forza Horizon for Xbox One X by increasing the resolution to native 4K. This was confirmed in an analysis by Digital Foundry. The title runs at 720p on Xbox 360 and Xbox One through backward compatibility. The game was already stunning to begin with, but now looks unbelievably crisp on a 4K display.
Not only that, but the anti-aliasing resolution eliminates jaggy edges and gives the racing game a very smooth appearance. While the frame rate is still locked to 30 FPS, the visual upgrade should bring fans back.
Forza Horizon is an open world racing game which combines the automotive thrills that Forza fans expect with a gorgeous world that begs to be explored. Unlike the Forza Motorsport series, you can drive wherever you want and challenge your friends in unique showdowns. Forza Horizon is only available as a physical copy now because it was delisted from the Microsoft Store due to expiring music licenses.
The added power of the Xbox One X allows the company to render more pixels even when it comes to older games. The device launched on November 7, 2017 and is the most powerful console ever made. The Xbox One X features 6 teraflops of processing power and 12 GB of memory. In addition to that, the console contains a 4K Blu-ray player and offers a faster hard drive for improved load times. For those looking to make the most of their gaming experience — no matter if it's the desire for higher resolutions or more stable frame rates — the console may be the device for you.
