Square Enix revealed at Gamescom 2017 that one of their award-winning games, “Rise of The Tomb Raider”, is also getting an enhancement update to run native 4K visuals on the Xbox One X.
The update includes improvements in graphics such as native 4K resolution (3840×2160) for the highest possible fidelity and a range of technical enhancements that leverage the full power of the console.
The update also introduces three visual modes, so gamers can choose the setting that best suits their gaming style and needs. These options add some great flexibility depending on the visual performance each player wants to watch on their 4K HDR or basic HD TV. The three modes are:
- Native 4K: (full 3840 by 2160) for highest fidelity resolution.
- Enriched Visuals: for stunning graphic upgrades.
- High Frame Rate: for the smoothest possible gameplay.
Square Enix also detailed the tech enhancements included on the update. Rise of The Tomb Raider will support HDR display, for a more vibrant and accurate color representation. The sound in the game has also been strengthened by adding compatibility with spatial audio, including Dolby Atmos support, for a true 3D audio experience.
Even if you don’t own a state-of-the-art 4K UHD Television with HDR support you’ll still notice the difference: Lara Croft, non-playable characters and the surrounding environment itself will have improved, more detailed textures. Thanks to the additional memory and 6 Teraflops offered by the Xbox One X, additional visual enhancements include: Improved volumetric lights, improved reflections, enhanced foliage, upgraded polygonal detail and amplified texture filtering
