The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program has had a busy week. Four titles previously on the service have all been enhanced for the Xbox One X. Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal and The Orange Box all now have enhanced visuals and a higher resolution to take advantage of the power of the Xbox One X. Also added to the service this week were Crysis and its sequels, Crysis 2 and 3.
Xbox 360 games enhanced for Xbox One X run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count. The power of Xbox One X enables the Xbox 360 emulator to showcase the very best version possible with the existing assets—all without touching the game code. Today’s additions join the 17 previously released enhanced Xbox 360 titles like Red Dead Redemption and Skate 3 for a total of 21 Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 games.
The Crysis series of games are first-person shooters developed by German developer Crytek and published by Electronic Arts. The series revolves around a group of military protagonists with “nanosuits”, technologically advanced suits of armour that allow them to gain enhanced physical strength, speed, defence, and cloaking abilities. The protagonists face off against hostile North Korean soldiers, heavily armed mercenaries, and a race of technologically advanced aliens known as the Ceph, who arrived on Earth millions of years ago for unclear reasons, and have recently been awakened. All three games are free to download on the Xbox One provided you have purchased them digitally previously, or by popping you disc version into the Xbox One. All three can also be purchased
