More than 100 new and existing Xbox One titles will be enhanced for Xbox One X to take advantage of the console’s power, Microsoft announced during its Gamescom press conference today.
That includes games like Halo 5, NBA 2K18, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, ReCore: Definitive Edition, FIFA 18, Assassins Creed Origins, Forza Motorsport 7 and The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt. You can find the full list of titles over at Major Nelson’s site. The list currently includes just under 120 titles.
The free upgrades to games for Xbox One X include support for high dynamic range color and 4k resolution, among others.
Microsoft recently announced preorders Xbox One X and already, the console is out of stock in major retailers. First announced back at E3 in June, the latest Xbox One features a 4k playback and more memory.

The company debuted a limited edition version of the One X in Gamescom conference, in line with the Xbox One’s Day One edition. The new system is an homage to the console’s Project Scorpio codename. Alongside the Xbox One X, two new Xbox One S bundles: A Minecraft-skinned version and one that comes with a copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available too.
Moving Your Games to the New Console
Xbox One owners will be able to move their games and settings over to the new, 4K-capable Xbox One X when it launches on November 7.
The easiest way to get all your games to the new system, as Microsoft Vice President Mike Ybarra says, is to transfer your games to an external USB hard drive and then plug that drive into the new console.
“All your games are ready to play immediately after this external hard drive move,” he said. User-specific settings can also be copied via an external hard drive in the same way.

If you don’t have an external drive handy, “we’re going to let you copy games and apps off your home network instead of having to manually move them or redownload them off the Internet,” he added. It’s unclear right now if Microsoft will mirror the PS4 Pro and allow this kind of system-to-system transfer using an Ethernet cable plugged directly into both consoles.
