Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X last month at E3 2017 – an upcoming flagship console set to achieve higher resolutions, improved frame rates, and other visual enhancements. Numerous developers announced their plans to support the console over the course of the show, through both upcoming releases and patches to existing titles. We've now been assured that Star Wars Battlefront II will be receiving a patch on Xbox One X, with enhancements to leverage the power of the new hardware.
As a part of its E3 2017 offerings, Electronic Arts was one of biggest publishers promising support for its upcoming titles. Blockbusters such as FIFA 18, Madden NFL 18, and Anthem all clearly touted support for the Xbox One X, with enhancements to take full advantage of the additional resources. However, at the time, mention of an update for Star Wars Battlefront 2 appeared to be absent from the show.
As seen on the official Xbox website, we now have clear confirmation that Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be upgraded for the Xbox One X. Like other games advertised under the "Xbox One X Enhanced" tagline, Star Wars Battlefront 2 will have various visual upgrades on the console – though the actual specifics of the upgrade are yet to be confirmed.
While up until now it seemed likely that the game would be getting enhancements, the publisher's messaging has transpired as somewhat unclear. Between changing development plans and various marketing deals, it's become apparent some publishers are holding official announcements until closer to the console's November launch.
With Gamescom on the horizon, Xbox head Phil Spencer has already confirmed more details will be shared regarding Xbox One X Enhanced titles. With all of this year's biggest Xbox exclusives already getting upgrades, it's safe to assume new third-party announcements will be made.
