ReCore is getting HDR support on the Xbox One S

Earlier this year, Microsoft introduced a slimmed-down revision of its flagship gaming console, the Xbox One S. While performance was mostly unchanged, the console introduced HDR support for select titles – significantly expanding the range of both contrast and color displayed on-screen.

It has now been revealed that Microsoft's recent action-based platformer, ReCore, is on track to receive the HDR treatment in the coming months.

In an unexpected announcement on Twitter, general manager at Microsoft Studios Publishing, Shannon Loftis, has revealed that ReCore will be receiving an update adding HDR support in the near future. Although no specific date was provided, Loftis outlined that the update will be dropping sometime 'in the new year'.

ReCore is one of the few remaining titles from Microsoft's fall 2016 lineup not to support HDR. Following the release of both Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4, which are both HDR enabled, support for ReCore is long overdue. With a number of third-parties also enabling support for existing titles, the Xbox One is building up a respectable library of HDR enabled content.
