New Halo Backwards Compatible Titles Coming To Xbox One Program

Halo 5 4K Update Confirmed For Xbox One X

Microsoft claims that the Xbox One X has 40% more power than any other console.

343 Industries seems to have a busy summer ahead of them and is looking forward to Gamescom in August where they will be showing more of Halo Wars 2.

343 Industries, Halo 5's developer, confirmed today that Halo 5 will indeed be receiving a 4K update to coincide with the release of the Xbox One X. They say it will be supporting true 4K for the title, which will be a welcome addition.

Also, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary for Xbox 360 are all coming to Xbox Backward Compatibility. Microsoft also went on to show a slew of games for the new console, but noticeably missing is one title that has been there since the beginning: Halo.

"The team here at 343 always had a desire to bring players the best Halo 5 experience for Xbox One X, but we weren't quite ready to make the announcement during the E3 time frame", a 343 Industries post on the official Halo site notes. There will be more to announce when the release date is closer. One question on many gamers' mind however, is if it is going to be a 60FPS 4K gameplay. Noticeably absent from the list was Halo 5 and it looks like we now know why. Guardians will receive a game update later this year that adds support for true 4K. All of these games will include campaign and multiplayer, and will support LAN play on Xbox One. The good news does not end there. Every Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack will become free in the Xbox Store to coincide with the release.
