Alongside the launch of the new Xbox One X this fall, you'll also start seeing games labeled as "Xbox One X Enhanced." If that's a little confusing, Xbox's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb sat down with Albert Penello from the Xbox team to shed a little more light on things. Check it out above.

In simple terms, the Xbox One Enhanced label just indicates that the game has been updated to take advantage of the extra horsepower in the Xbox One X in some manner. That can include features like 4K, increased visual flair, and higher framerates. Rise of the Tomb Raider, for example, will offer your choice of all three, while Forza Motorsport 7 is aiming for 4K and high-res textures running at 60 frames per second.

The list of Xbox One X Enhanced games has grown rapidly to more than 130 games since the console was announced, and that list will only keep getting bigger as we head towards the console's November 7 launch. You can check out our full list of currently known Xbox One X Enhanced titles for more, and preorder an Xbox One X of your own now.
