Slowly but surely, the native 4K titles are coming. The latest to supposedly join the pack: Forza Horizon 3.
In a post on the official Xbox Wire, Forza Horizon devs Playground Games confirmed the open-world arcade racer has a native 4K update, compatible with both the Hot Wheels and Blizzard Mountain expansions.
Given how vibrant Forza Horizon 3 is, it’s nice that it’s finally gotten a 4K upgrade. The patch has added a bunch of upgrades specific for the Xbox One X, including increased draw and LOD distances, better visual effects and an increased shadow resolution. The game’s photo mode will output in 4K as well, if that’s your thing.
An infographic on the Xbox Wire also notes that the Xbox One X version will have faster load times, although there’s no specifics on how much faster those load times are. Forza Horizon 3 already had HDR support for the Xbox One S, and subsequently the Xbox One X on launch. The only downside is that the patch appears to lock Forza Horizon 3 to 4K/30fps, instead of giving users a 1080p or 1440p option at a higher frame rate.
