Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be Xbox One X Enhanced

It's official, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 on Xbox One X will deliver the definitive experience on consoles. The game page on Xbox now states clearly, "Xbox One X Enhanced" and although we don't yet know the details of that "enhancement" we only need to look at the console specs to get an idea of what it can entail.

The words "Xbox One X Enhanced" immediately reminds me of "PlayStation 4 Pro Enhanced", and we did indeed discuss this comparison in an earlier article. After the Xbox One X E3 reveal, Digital Foundry discovered an issue with third-party games running at that holy native 4K resolution - and Star Wars Battlefront was one of the games in question.

"Digital Foundry does state that achieving 60FPS is not easy and Battlefront 2 does run at that spec. This is probably why dynamic resolution and checkerboard upscaling will be used to achieve a higher resolution. Many other titles could have the same issue where the engine that the game has been developed on simply does not scale as well as it should upwards for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X hardware."

That being said - the tests were performed before Battlefront 2 received the "Xbox One X Enhanced" stamp. The above article also clearly states as much. I hope to see some new tests after said "Enhancements."

Personally, I don't believe that third-party games such as Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will run as "enhanced" on the PlayStation 4 Pro as it will on the Xbox One X.  The latter has more power under the hood and as such could deliver the true 4K experience. Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure, it's going to be fantastic to play on the Xbox One X.
