Anthem to be X-enhanced

Xbox One X owners will be pleased to hear that their consoles will be getting the special treatment when it comes to the upcoming release of Anthem and now we have a little more information on what enhancement will mean for the title. In short we can expect native 4K visuals and HDR support – so it will look especially good.

In this interview, Scott Newman, Head of Technology for Anthem at BioWare spoke with Xbox Wire on enhancing his title for Xbox One X:

“The Anthem team has been able to leverage the power of the Xbox One X to deliver enhanced graphics to our players. The added GPU power of this console allows Anthem to render at native 4K and with HDR. To complement the increased image quality of 4K, we have also increased the resolution at which we render shadows in the game, and we have enhanced the rendering of in-game terrain. Finally, the added memory of the Xbox One X allows us to increase the number of meshes and textures we stream into the player’s view at any given moment.

Once players see Anthem running on the Xbox One X, it becomes apparent that this is one of the best ways to experience it. No other console can handle the improvements to image fidelity while also rendering at native 4K. Anthem is quite stunning when played on Xbox One X.” – Scott Neumann, Head of Technology for Anthem at BioWare
