For Honor Receives Xbox One X Enhancements

By Andy Mills, 6 days ago
With the likes of Assassin's Creed Origins, Steep, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands and more, publisher Ubisoft has been quick to support the Xbox One X. That support continues today with the release of For Honor's Xbox One X patch.

For Honor 8

The patch notes for v1.16 aren't particularly long but they do contain plenty for Xbox One X owners to enjoy. You can read them in full below:

4K Rendering
Xbox One X graphics are rendered at 4K. This will bring you a much sharper image on a 4K TV. We are using a real-time variable resolution (up to 4K-2160p) coupled with hardware scaling that output to TV resolution. With the scaling, even lower resolution HD TV’s will notice a better overall definition.
Improved shadow resolution
Shadows on Xbox One X will have a better definition.
Improved level of detail distances
Far away environment objects will be rendered with a higher definition.
Improved water using Screen-Space Reflections
Many water surfaces will now show dynamic reflections.
To see what these changes are Ubisoft has also released a trailer that shows each of the changes with rather helpful before-and-after shots.


The Xbox One X update for For Honor will be available to download today.
