Ever since the Xbox One X was first teased as ‘Project Scorpio’, we knew that Bethesda would be supporting it. After all, Todd Howard himself appeared in the promotional teaser, talking about moving Fallout 4 to VR and the kind of console it would take to support that. So it should come as no surprise that Xbox One X support for several Bethesda games has been detailed and there’s quite a bit to go over. All this information comes via the official website.

Here’s the full list of upcoming enhancements: 
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
  • Supports 4K Resolution
  • Enhanced features include:
    • Dynamic Resolution
Fallout 4
  • Supports 4K Resolution
  • Enhanced features include:
    • Dynamic Resolution
    • Enhanced draw distance for trees, grass, objects and NPCs
    • Enhanced God Ray effects
Skyrim Special Edition
  • Supports 4K Resolution
  • Enhanced features include:
    • Dynamic Resolution
Dishonored 2 & Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
  • Supports 4K Resolution
  • Enhanced features include:
    • Dynamic Resolution
    • Improved framerate stability
    • 4K textures
    • Improved geometry/draw distances
    • Improved anti-aliasing
    • Improved shadows quality
The Evil Within 2
  • Enhanced Features include:
    • Upgraded resolution
    • Higher framerate
    • 30 fps lock removal
The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Supports Native 4K Resolution and HDR
  • Enhanced features include:
    • Increased view distance
    • Upgraded shadows with Screen Space Ambient Occlusion
    • Upgraded water reflections

So if you’re an Xbox One X owner (or soon will be) you can look forward to quite a few nicely enhanced games. It’s great that Bethesda is providing this kind of support however, I have to wonder about a couple of odd exceptions. Doom and Prey aren’t listed anywhere and HDR is only confirmed for The Elder Scrolls Online. I hope this doesn’t mean those games aren’t getting any support at all, as I thoroughly enjoyed my time with both Doom and Prey.

Regardless, it’s good that we are getting Xbox One X support for several Bethesda games to match the support provided to the PS4 Pro so far and hopefully both consoles continue to receive lots of special enhancements.
