For Honor getting the 4K treatment with Xbox One X Enhanced patch tomorrow

We've known for some time that For Honor, Ubisoft's warrior battler, was in line for Xbox One X enhancements, but details have been light. The official For Honor Twitter account broke that silence today, announcing that the game's Xbox One X Enhanced patch will launch on December 5, and detailing all of its improvements.

Not only is For Honor getting a basic bump up to 4K resolution, but it's getting a whole lot prettier as well. The Xbox One X enhancements include things like improved water reflections, shadow resolution and more. Here's a look at the full treatment:

  • Improved Water Reflections
  • Improved Distance Level of Detail
  • Improved Shadow Resolution
  • Improved Texture Filtering
  • 4K Redolution

In For Honor, you battle other players as a great warrior from one of several civilizations. Those include knights, vikings, samurai, and more, pitting the deadly skills of each against the other on the battlefield. The game was definitely one of 2017's more interesting releases, even if it seens its share of problems. On top of that, judging by the teaser video Ubisoftr released today, the Xbox One X patch looks to be one of the more robust that we've see for a previously released title thus far, improving the game's visuals by quite a bit.

The For Honor Xbox One X Enhanced patch is set to roll out on December 5. If you have yet to give the game a shot, you can pick up For Honor for Xbox One now at Microsoft and Amazon.
