Microsoft announced some big backwards compatibility news during tonight's Inside Xbox broadcast. Along with a huge selection of original Xbox games that will soon be playable on Xbox One, the company revealed that another batch of Xbox 360 titles are getting enhancements on its new Xbox One X console.
Five more 360 games from Xbox One's backwards compatible library are receiving updates to support the X today, April 10. The biggest of the bunch is Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar's critically acclaimed western, though the rest of the batch consists of some of 360's most beloved games, including Gears of War 2, Portal 2, Darksiders, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
In addition to those titles, Microsoft announced that another 360 game is joining Xbox One's backwards compatible library: Sonic Generations, the 2011 installment that features both classic and modern Sonic gameplay. It likewise is receiving an update to support Xbox One X today, April 10.
With the update, all of the above titles will run at higher resolution and feature other visual improvements when played on Xbox One X. This is done using the Heutchy Method--named after the Microsoft engineer who developed it--which "leverages the power of Xbox One X to let the Xbox 360 emulator present the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets--all without touching the game code."
