A brand new and exciting feature has arrived for Xbox One owners as more Backwards Compatible Xbox 360 titles have become enhanced for the Xbox One X. Gamers will be able to play with new graphics settings for enhanced Xbox 360 titles on the Xbox One X to give them joyful old-school gaming sessions but with some crisp and enhanced graphics.
The new options will allow players to play the game with enhanced graphics or in their original form. The enhanced graphics will kick in by default and the game will then run with "higher resolution, 9X the pixel count, increased texture details and antialiasing". Switching off the graphics setting will make the graphics comparable to the experience offered on the Xbox One or Xbox One S. There are a couple of screens to look at showcasing how to change the settings. Once you make any changes, you will need to restart your game:
- Press “View” and “Menu” buttons on the controller to pull up the Xbox 360 guide
- Navigate to “Settings” blade
- Select “Xbox One X Settings”
- Select to optimize for “Graphics” or “Performance”
Bill Stillwell, Lead Program Manager on the Xbox Platform goes on to detail how exactly this works:
