Quantum Break will get the 4K treatment on the Xbox One X

In my review, I noted how Quantum Break pushed the Xbox One to its absolute limits, given its crazy visual effects that throw time-warped ripples over every surface and enemy. The game uses checkerboard rendering methods on Xbox One, and the sheer amount of detail squeezed into the game makes it appear quite blurry on the console. Thankfully, Quantum Break will get a 4K enhanced version on Xbox One X.

Announced today on Microsoft's Gamescom 2017 live stream, Quantum Break will benefit from the Xbox One X's 6 TF power, bringing improved visuals and 4K resolution.

Quantum Break on Xbox One X should prove the definitive way to experience the game on console, given that even high-end PCs struggled with the game on higher graphics settings.

Stay tuned for more from Gamescom 2017.
