Microsoft announced the Xbox One X during the summer as a more powerful option for gamers who want to stay on consoles. There are three upgrades you can get with Xbox One X games and Call of Duty: WWII checks the first box. You don’t need to buy a special Call of Duty: WWII edition to get this upgrade, you just need to put your disk in the Xbox One X, or play your digital copy on the more powerful system.
The Call of Duty: WWII Xbox One X enhanced version includes the following upgrades;
- More detail in the game.
- Better performance
- Potentially faster load times.
- Potential for higher resolution.
- Higher and steadier frame rates.
This designation does not mean that Call of Duty: WWII is in 4K on the Xbox One X or that you can enjoy HDR. There is no mark in those boxes on the Xbox One X Enhanced page, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get any of these.
Activision confirmed 4K and HDR support for the PS4 Pro, which leaves us hopeful that the Xbox One X will come with that support when the game arrives, or when a Xbox One X update for it arrives.
The Xbox One X release date is November 7th, a few days after the Call of Duty: WWII release date. If you buy the game you can start playing on your current Xbox One and then you can transfer your save and progress over to the Xbox One X later pretty easily. You can pre-order Call of Duty: WWII now and you can still find some Xbox One X pre-orders in stock.
