A few days ago, Red Dead Redemption received an Xbox One X upgrade which increased the resolution of the game. The title originally launched on Xbox 360 in 2010. Today, Digital Foundry analyzed the new version and concluded that it ran at native 4K resolution on Microsoft's newest console.
Digital Foundry confirmed the resolution and improved effects in a video.
It's the first time this game's visuals have been improved since its release in 2010 on Xbox 360, where X hardware pushes the resolution from 1280x720 to 3840x2160. Add in 16x anisotropic filtering, and a tighter lock at 30fps, and this ranks up there as one of the most satisfying reprisals of Xbox 360's back catalogue.
It's great to see that classics like Red Dead Redemption are effectively receiving free remasters for Xbox One X. The added anisotropic filtering and stable frame rate greatly enhance the experience. Hopefully more Xbox 360 games will be upgraded for Xbox One X down the line.
Red Dead Redemption takes you on an epic journey across the dying West. When federal agents threaten his family, former outlaw John Marston is forced to pick up his guns and hunt down the gang of criminals he once called friends. Players experience Marston's journey across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico as he fights to bury his blood-stained past and seek a new future for himself and his family.
Red Dead Redemption is currently available for around $20 at various retailers.
