World of Tanks patch adds HDR for Xbox One S gamers
The pool of HDR-enabled games for the Xbox One S is currently pretty small, but it just got a little bigger. Thanks to a new patch to World of Tanks, the game is now HDR-enabled for those playing the Xbox One S with a compatible TV.
According to a Reddit thread on the topic, the patch that enables HDR is available now and weighs in at 3.26GB. With the patch, World of Tanks joins Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, and NBA 2K17 as the only HDR games that are currently available. Upcoming games, like Resident Evil 7, Scalebound, and Final Fantasy XV, are also expected to support HDR once they're released.
Keep in mind that HDR will only work if you play World of Tanks on an Xbox One S connected to an HDR-capable TV. If you are, however, you should see more pronounced colors and highlights than you would while playing the game without HDR enabled.

Interested to see if other games will follow
Meanwhile Sony said that developers will have the choice to charge for patches that unlock performance boosts on the ps4 pro. I know Sony said all 1st party games will get it free. o far I believe we have seen games that work better on the xbox one s and zero mention of fees for patches UWP and play anywhere just sounding stronger and stronger. Although to be honest I'm not sure that WOT is actually UWP.
